  1. Haha, I work with about a dozen grown men with that same problem. Some of it you just have to put up with. Yes production sucks, especially at a high volume place where it sounds like you worked. You gain a lot of practice but borrrrrring. Do you think after all your years in accounting that it was coincidence you returned to art? Or has art always fill you with a sense of purpose?
  2. I'm trying to accept people. If you think life is meant to be lived by a specific code or set of principles then doesn't that mean there is only one correct compass? Only one way? And when you see other people acting against that, it's troubling to watch. You might say, "forget them they don't concern me." But sooner or later someone you do care about is going to do something that leaves you hurt or disappointed and then it's difficult to accept that they have the right to choose for themselves how to live their life. Even if it looks like they're headed the wrong direction. How do you accept that people have their own right to live, to navigate through life, without shoving your opinions or beliefs in their face, and insisting that your perspective is the only perspective that won't lead them off a cliff?
  3. Is death not our shared fate? Right now is all ... simulation. Do actions have any significance if there is no record of them?
  4. So. I've been listening to an audiobook on Einstein's theory of relativity, introductory stuff. And in my basic knowledge of the subject direction, much like speed, is relative to the observer. If two people were on the same map but their compass key were different they both could navigate based on different directions. Could this concept be applied to people's 'moral compass'? Why does it matter in judging other people's choices or the direction they take if our destination is the same?
  5. What an interesting choice of career. I once knew a woman who was an emergency phone operator who then became a reporter for the local paper- back when newspaper was a thing. I wonder if her experiences guided her interest. I agree there are many resources online that are well structured and totally free. Learning is a thrill now. Does it make you self conscious to be an unconventional student? I was once laughed at by a graduate who was very proud of his accomplishments. On knowing what to do... When I first held my daughter I said, "I don't know what I'm supposed to do." But I knew it was right.
  6. I think a lot of people say, "hey if I didn't turn left at that stop sign there's no possible way I'd be where I am right now." When in reality there are a lot of other routes to that same location, and many, many others. Contemplating all the 'what ifs' is unproductive. I'm happy with my life and family. I plan on going back and getting an education. I was just wondering if anyone had any experiences that would be helpful advice.
  7. I'm a welder. It's a steady income now that I have a family. I failed out of a biochemistry program years ago. The hardest thing I've had to overcome was depression. Hindsight I've learned a lot about the value of education. I'd cut off my arm to go back to school. I have no idea what I would tell myself in the past. And I really think I should know. I didn't make this topic because I wanted to talk about myself. I want to know how smart, successful people came to choose their careers and if anything helped make them into who they are today.
  8. Would you care to share your story on how you came to be where you are today? What is the biggest influenced outside of academics that led you to the field you work in? What is the most challenging situation you have encountered in your lifetime? What is the most valuable thing you have learned from your experiences? What advice would you tell a younger version of yourself? Is there anything left you wish to accomplish? I understand you are very busy so I want to thank you for the privilege of your time.
