So, either I'm just completely missing something, or that's not the video you meant to post.

I do still need to watch that movie though...

    At The Drive In is an emo band.

Disagree.

    At The Drive In (however you spell it) are one of the council's favorite live bands ever.

Apparently I emo differently than the council because I very much agree with this statement.

This guy. You win again.

@redsox44344, this really is the only answer. You put in the time for your degree and now is the time to make it work for you. Even if this opportunity doesn't come close to the top of your most desired jobs list, you will be making real money and have real benefits. Like @kleinbl00 said, the best time to find another job is when you already have one. Stepping stones, etc.

That said, it sounds like you're dealing with burnout more than anything else. Good news there too: more than likely you just need a real change of pace, and more than likely, that is exactly what you will get upon entering the commercial sector.

Take the plunge. If it doesn't work, I'm fairly confident in your ability to submit resumes elsewhere..

I fucked up. I started college for the wrong reasons, at the wrong time in my life, and without an end goal of my own, so I (mostly) failed out... slowly.

My advice is only that you should actually have a personal reason to go. If you do, things will fall into place as you hone in on your target, even if the exact mark moves a bit. If you don't, you will still meet a whole lot of very interesting people and love the experience, but the vast majority of worthwhile programs expect your focus from day 1.

Context and further explanation/justification omitted because it was getting long and too specific to be of any use to you, but I was Pre-Med, English Lit, Philosophy, and Computer Science. Things are easier if you start off with some kind of idea for a final goal.

Maybe as more of these kind of things come to light people will realize that when a product is 'free' for the end user, that means the real product is something else like the users' data...

This is really interesting since the Google founders are apparently not interested in actually participating in healthcare.

The phrase "perfectly valueless" is twisting around my head in really fun ways right now. It's a neat little philosophical paradox.

Yeah, I get that. And thanks for putting this out there. It may not be a big problem here since there are nifty features like muting and filtering available, but I do still think there is a lot value in lurking a bit first to get an idea of what's already there. Seems a bit like streaking through an unfamiliar neighborhood otherwise..

I lurk because I'm not here frequently enough to keep up with everything.. (aaand maybe because I'm a little intimidated of the 'core' hubski group -- y'all got some established report and whatnot)

Yeah, you've got it. The author says absolutely nothing new and misses the entire history of connected "single-use" appliances.

From the article:

    Other Republican members of the subcommittee echoed these sentiments, standing strongly against regulation. Where they did approve of FCC intervention at all, they seemed to cheer on the fast lane concept.

But, you're right on that last part.
