Choosing a college major is like dating and that's...okay??

I used to have this sinking feeling that choosing my college and major was the educational equivalent of announcing engagement to some guy I'd never met before—total commitment ... and I'd live with the consequences forever. As it turns out, picking a field of study is more like dating than engagement, and your major(s) aren't even disappointed when you dump ‘em for something that fits better! Don't feel pressured to figure out your future freshman year. You may not even end up in a job directly related to your major.

Well, you've *met* the guy; it's just that it wasn't as intense because you were both in high school, and when you went for your campus visit you saw him all dressed up when he was trying to impress you.

But, wow, kind of sensible, though I'd be a bit loathe to take much college planning advice from someone whose experience includes 'online college classes from three different schools, lived on campus at one, attended campus from home at another, and changed my major four times.' That's like getting wedding advice from someone who did a lot of speed dating. ;)

I have a big concern!

I decided to become a nurse. I was all excited about this. A couple of weeks ago I heard about the new healthcare law that passed && will begin April 2013!!

The law consists that everyone has to get this microchip either on your forthhead or right hand to be able to provide medines or even going to the doctor!! I don't want to get this microchip! This is on revelation 14:9 I think && since I wanted to become a nurse they will make me have this chip! I need advice as soon as possible

I'm sure that 'choosing among the multiple nursing schools that offered me admission' will not be one of her concerns. :roll:

It sounds like someone's been reading too many of the Left Behind books.

Heh, here's a comment.

As microchips are not clearly indicated in scripture as being the mark of the beast, and as they are not put in place until halfway thru the tribulation when the church is not here on the earth...then I don't think you have anything to worry about. I for one will gladly take a microchip if it means serving the Lord more effectively. But I would pray about it and then do whatever the Lord lays upon your heart to do about it.

Great, now the new trend among fundie women will be microships so their headships can keep track of them more easily.

There has been developments in microchips that hold important medical data -- basically a replacement for medic alert jewelry, since you can't lose it. I believe they're generally talking about putting them in the upper arm, not the hand or forehead.

I can't even come up with something snarky, this is just too damn funny.

Love love love Mindy, who responded to the microchip ridiculousness:

Dania,

My advice would be to stop reading ridiculous websites that propagate false information. Just because someone is standing behind a pulpit or writing for a religious website does not make them credible. What you heard/read is absolutely in no way true...that you would even believe it makes me a bit O.o. You may want to adjust your tinfoil hat or actually have some interaction with the real world for a while.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.
