I would like to go for journalism or something along those lines, but I'm not 100% sure yet...working on getting everything together now and hopefully soon I'm be back in school....wish me luck.

Ultimately I would love to work in the video game industry, but I'll take whatever I can get. I'm not really sure if there's a place for my particular writing style or my off-the-wall sense of humor...so I'm going to have to act all professional and well behaved for a while...at least until I make a name for myself, then it's on like Donkey King baby.

You should go to the Pr0n businesses instead.

I'd wish you luck but I need to start giving you no respect.

Good luck, man. You should most definitely look for a career in writing.

I would never make anyone cry...if anything they'll make me cry...I'm a total wuss.

OP says:
Off-topic: When I was in college/graduate school, my university every year as September would roll around would start airing Back to School on Resnet (which meant you might be able to see it every 1~2 days for a span of about 2~4 weeks).

On-topic: I had hoped that you would include a line about getting no respect.

Just a word of advice: I would not recommend journalism as a college major to anyone. I have a journalism degree and found out almost immediately out of school that my decision was a mistake. Luckily, my first newspaper job out of school (which sucked, for the most part) allowed me to get some experience and springboard out of the industry.

I still have many friends in the business. Most are overworked, under-appreciated and vastly underpaid, and those are the ones who are employed.

If you like journalism, I'd suggest you work for the college newspaper or TV station and pursue a degree in another similar field.

Heh, just quoting Back to School.

For the record, writing letters to Penthouse magazine that begin with, "I never thought this would happen to me, but..." doesn't count.
