    #11389423 - 11/05/09 09:24 AM (8 years, 1 month ago)

So I got a test back last night from my Adv. Micro class.  I got a 73 on teh first test, and REALLY needed to pull a B on this one in order to have an upward trend in my grades (and thus, a higher liklihood the teacher would curve upward at the end of the semester).  I got it back at the end of class and put it right in my bookbag without looking (i wanted to get high first just incase it was bad).

I went home, went next door to my best friend's house, got high - and completly forgot.




Just checked my bookbag and I got a 96 :awebig:




Time to celebrate :rastana: :dancingbacon: :dancingbear:

Thanks man.  I studied REALLY hard for it.  Grad school is hard as shit and its really been kickin' my ass.  I'm def learning though -so I'm feelin' confident about my ability to attain a job in my desired field once I graduate with my M.A.

Not sure yet.  I spent last summer being an intern in DC and loved it - so I'll probably end up back there working for a gov't angency.  Not sure which, either BLS, BEA, Fed, World Bank?, maybe a nonprofit?

Essentially we just crunch numbers, run regressions, gather/analyze monetary/national/production aggregates.  :shrug: :suicide:

Basically just fuck around with shit all day and act like the weatherman of the economy :thumbup:  We never really have to be right, since it's all just statistics.

and that sounds appealing to you...?  i don't mean to second guess your intended path, but i personally don't think i'd ever be able to self-actualize in a job like that.  it just seems so stifling.

although, i suppose there is a fair amount of creative thinking in interpreting the data, beyond the crunching of numbers.  still not really for me.  it's a shame i realized that after completing my degree.

regardless, i hope that works for you.

I like to thinka bout shit.  Making connections is something I do for fun all the time, so doing it for a job is kinda like a natural.  If you were familiar with my personalitiy & quarks, you'd be like "oh shit, that's you in a nutshell"

It's awesomeeeee.  I'm glad nobody likes economics - it makes being "top tier" soooooo much easier.



Edit:  And you don't really have to crunch numbers.  You get the data sets (somebody else compiles them), and you just set up models and run them in SAS or eviews all day, and interpret the results, generate conclusions, test ideas and eventually develop a model that does a reasonably good job at explaining D-variable Y, given I-variables X1, X2, X3, X4, ... , Xn.

Yeah, people usually don't understand how I can sit in an office looking at blueprints and job specifications all day, but I actually enjoy it.

I think I got institutionalized from too much in-school suspension in high school cause now I enjoy working in Skinner's box.

Woke up before noon today. Smoking a few bowls, and showering before I go off to apply for more jobs who aren't going to hire me.
