Was college different in your days than it is now?

Yes. Big Time!
When I attended college we did not study: gender studies, black history, feminism, equity and inclusion, etc. I studied composition, arranging, harmony, counterpoint, improvisation, music history, conducting, ear training, guitar, piano, bass guitar, digital systems, analog systems, power supplies, electricity, physics, calculus, English Literature, US History, Ancient History, Fine Arts, Public Speaking, Psychology, Philosophy, Network engineering, machine language, basic programming, pascal programming, C Programming, IP addressing, Subnet masking, OSPF, BGP, RIP, WAN, LAN, Routers, Switches, Firewalls, OSI Model, Access Lists, etc
And after acquiring all of this knowledge I worked hard to apply what I had learned. In the case of music, I performed in bands and practiced to continuously improve. In the case of engineering I became a Cisco Certified and Baynetworks Certified Network Engineer and worked for many organizations over a 40 year career i.e. Motorola, Nortel, Cabletron, Bay Networks, Cisco, State of New Hampshire, Vital Networks, Bloomin Brands and Tech Data.
Whenever possible, I studied subjects that interested me and that I knew would allow me to earn money and provide for my family. I also studied music, not for the money, but because I love Music and that has always been my dream to earn a degree from Berklee College of Music. Some people say, so what? Who cares? Here is the thing, when we are moments away from death and we reflect upon the life we have lived, what will we think? Will we regret our life because we only did those things that made us money? Or will we have a more balanced appreciation that we utilized our time to not only provide for our family but that we also achieved our dream and thus satisfied our soul? The choice is ours to make and only we, as individuals, can make those choices and be honest enough to own whatever choice we make, and refrain from blaming other people or society, and thus become "victims."
My father once told me the following: "son you've made your bed, and now you must lie in it." Which translated, means that we are responsible for the decisions we make and the consequences of those decisions whether good or bad. Said differently, we must take responsibility for what we think, say and do.

When my parents were in their late 20s they had a house and a car. I’m in my late 20s and I don’t even have a chair to my name. Isn’t that sad?

I lived with my parents until I was 24 years old and when I finally moved out in 1978 and rented an apartment, I was broke and could not even afford a full size bed, so my wife and I slept on a single size mattress for about 6 months until we could afford a full size mattress. And to add insult to injury, my wife and I both had bachelor degree's from reputable colleges and we owed about $100k in student debit. Yet, we persisted and never lost our faith or hope.
My wife was pregnant with our first child and I enrolled in an engineering degree program while working as a janitor on 3rd shift for Motorola/Codex which was a high tech modem manufacturer. After 2 years I worked my way into a technician position earning about $18k/yr. Slowly I climbed my way up becoming a technical instructor and eventually a network engineer earning $120k/yr.
I am now retired, but work 30 hours/wk as a janitor in our local high school to help pay the bills, and I am 70 years old.
Looking back at my career, I smile thinking that I started out as a janitor and in the twilight of my years, I am still working as a janitor. Talk about irony, right?
The point I want to make is that we are not victims. You and I have the ability to reason and to set goals for ourselves that are both reasonable and achievable. However, our goals can only be attained with blood, sweat and tears. I am not going to say too much about my life except that I never lost my faith in God, my family or my own innate abilities.
For example, when my wife and I got married, nobody thought we would last 5 years and 42 years later we are still in love. My wife earned 3 degrees (a bachelor and 2 masters degrees) and I earned a degree in music and another degree in engineering. And during my life, not once did I blame my family or society for what I did not have.
Why? Because my father taught me: "son, you can achieve whatever you set your mind to achieve as long as you are willing to work for it and put forth the effort, you will eventually succeed." My father was 100% correct.
Not only did my wife and I procure and excellent education and pay for it with our own money, but we raised 3 children and over the years built 4 houses and renovated 3 homes to earn extra money, plus we were active in our church music ministry and my wife competed in swim meets while I performed music on weekends in various bands.
Remember, we only live for approximately 70 - 90 years, which in the grand scheme of things is but a brief moment in time. And so we really do not have time to waste worrying about people or things that we have no control over, right? So it seems to me to be common sense to concern ourselves with the one thing we have 100% control over.... our own thoughts, behaviors and actions. And since thoughts precede actions, if we are unhappy with an outcome or our current position in life, then we must alter our thought process and establish realistic goals and objectives.

ممكن تكلميني عن chemical engineering اكتر عشان معرفش عنها حاجه

بتبقى معالجة المواد الكيميائية والمهندسين الكيميائيين هما اللي بيخططوا ويصمموا العمليات الكيميائية دي و صناعة المعدات ومجالاتها بترول واسمنت وبتروكيماويات و ورق وبلاستيك واسمده و جودة
ممكن تشتغل : تصميم مصانع أو مهندس سلامه او مهندس بترول او مهندس بيئي او مهندس معالجة صدأ وحاجات تانيه برده

أنا لسة مخلص فيديو خارطة طريق مبسطة لعلوم الحاسب وعايز اقولك اني لما سألتك عن ال Software Engineering كان بهدف اني مش عارف فعلا هي عبارة عن ايه، او بتضيف ايه وهكذا فحاجتين، الاولي انا حسيت باحساس سئ ،وحابب تعرف انك كنت السبب في ده بسخريتك مني والحاجة التانية اني مستحيل اسألك عن حاجة تاني ،سلام عليكم

طيب خلاص حقك عليت اسف مقصدش والله :)
انا بس بيجلي رسايل كتير محاولة للهروب من التعلم
وده مش اول مرة يجيلي رسائل بنفس النوع ده
مش اول واحد يعني
الحاجة التانية لا انا ولا الناس تعرفك
وبالتالي في سياق سوء الفهم مش المفروض تقفش للدرجادي
معذرة مرة اخرى

How'd you describe your ideal work environment? Does the place you work at play a big role in your overall productivity? 😌💡

Actually I am a retired engineer but am still an active musician. Whether engineering or music I am very organized and methodical in my approach to design or performance. Equipment must be operational, the network must be understood and documented. With music, songs must be notated and rehearsed to maximize the actual performance. Personally I do not like performing engineering or music in an environment that I do not understand and am not comfortable with. And to the extent possible, I avoid situations like that even if it means refusing the work and losing money. If it's not fun, I lose interest rapidly.

Not sure. I am pretty tough with a high tolerance for pain but my engineering skills are lacking and I certainly would not be a good hunter

“the rich get richer and the poor get poorer” i couldn’t agree more yet the right keep on with “pick yourself up by the bootstraps/just work hard” narrative like poverty is their fault. i have a good work ethic & am rewarded but others aren’t. it’s not always enough, ive seen others sink

Well, speaking from a personal perspective, my family and I struggled with abject poverty for years. We didn't complain or ask for handouts. Both of my parents worked several jobs and there were plenty of nights when I went to bed hungry. Life is difficult. That's just a fact and we realized that other people faced worse circumstances. Eventually, we got "on our feet" and pulled ourselves out from the slime. Others have done it too and to be perfectly honest, I don't buy any of the pretexts. Hard work can indeed produce favorable results if ones *chooses* to make a concerted effort. I fear that many people would rather vegetate and complain, or blame others for their misfortune. You have to fight and struggle if you wish to achieve success. Difficult? Yes. But stagnation presents more difficulties in the long run. Finally, let's understand that success, however one defines it, isn't (nor should it be) "guaranteed." In order to increase the chances of success for as many people as possible, our focus should be on presenting as many opportunities as we can, allowing people to explore their talents / abilities and to hopefully maximize their potential. This cannot be achieved with collectivist experiments and / or social engineering. A society which refuses to spur economic development and incentivize productivity will ultimately crumble and "sticking it to the rich" will only encourage the wealthiest among us to conceal their wealth or place it where it can't be touched.

تفتكر المبرمج الشاطر بيرمج كام ساعة باليوم

أنا ملاحظ اسئلة كتير من عندك ليها علاقة بالموضوع دا،
عامةً يا نورا مفيش شغلانة اسمها مبرمج، المسمى دا انتهى مش هقول من ايام ويندوز 95 لا دا انتهى من ايام ما برمجة الكروت المثقوبة اللي بتتحط في كمبيوترز بحجم المباني انقرضت
فعل كتابة الكود او الـImplementation دا نشاط بيقوم بيه طيف واسع جدا من الناس كجزء من مهامهم الوظيفية، مش بس الـSoftware Engineers بكل اطيافهم انما فيه اكاديميين وباحثين وبيولوجيين وكيميائيين في مختبراتهم وحتى رياضيين او هواه ممكن يصادف مواقف في عملهم ينفذوا مهام تتطلب منهم كتابة كود.
لو اخدنا مثلا طيف التدرجات الوظيفية في مسار الـSoftware Engineering، هنلاقي مفيش اي علاقة بين الوقت اللي بتقضيه في كتابة كود وبين كفائتك، ولا حتى فيه علاقة بينه وبين درجتك الوظيفية.
انا كنت Software Engineer السنة اللي فاتت وكنت بكتب كود وبعمل حاجات تانية وبشارك في Architecture Decisions وBusiness Meetings
بقيت دلوقتي Senior Software Engineer ومازلت بعمل نفس الكلام بمسؤوليات اكبر وMentor ناس معايا
بس كدا، فمن الآخر مفيش اي علاقة بين اي حاجة من اللي اتقال دا

Hello sir, I am in dilemma to change my career, do you have any advice on it. Would love to hear from you

Changing careers is difficult because it takes honest soul searching and the willpower and self discipline to create realistic goals, define objectives and then execute your plan. I can only answer this question based upon my own experience.
When I was a teenager I decided to be a full time musician and so I took guitar lessons, practiced, formed a band and graduated from Berklee College of Music. To survive, I lived at home with my parents, taught guitar lessons, performed in bands and worked part time jobs for extra money.
In 1979 I rented an apartment, got married and we had our first child. It was at this point that I realized that being a full time musician would NOT pay the bills. So I started reading some self help books and came across a writer/speaker named Zig Ziglar who taught me how to create realistic goals and to prioritize what is important to me. So I created two lists: one list consisted of the careers I was interested in and the other list contained careers I was not interested in. One career that stood out was Electrical Engineering. I was always interested in electricity and electronic devices. My father would fix televisions and radios in the basement and I would frequently watch him and ask him questions.
However, the obstacle I had to confront was both financial and time related. Since I had a family and had recently graduated from Berklee but also needed decent employment, I had some difficult decisions to make. And so I found a two year Electronic Engineering program nearby where I could earn my ASEE within a few years and I enrolled. Next, I found employment at a high tech company working 3rd shift as a janitor. Within 2 years I was working 1st shift as a janitor and was cleaning and emptying trash for the CEO and the Vice Presidents. During this time period an electronic technician job became available and I mentioned my interest and my background to senior management. They promised me they would "look into it." Within one week, I had a job interview and was immediately hired to setup, configure and troubleshoot computer/networking equipment in their world wide technical training department. And from there I became a Product Support Engineer and ultimately a Senior Network Engineer with Certifications from Codex, Motorola, Nortel, BayNetworks, Cisco and Cabletron, to name a few. My career lasted 40+ years until retirement 4 years ago.
I hope this information helps you with your own career choice. Remember, it is not easy... but, it is worth the time and effort. Most importantly, NEVER give up!

What was your fave subject during your uni days?

When I was studying engineering I enjoyed Physics, Digital Electronics, Microprocessor theory and Networking (routers and switches). Designing, configuring and troubleshooting networks is what I enjoyed most in my career as a Network Engineer.
While studying Music at Berklee College I enjoyed playing in ensembles, harmonic theory, counterpoint, and conducting. As a musician, I enjoy playing my guitars and performing live with bands.

Do you have any art, pictures, posters etc. on your walls? What kinds? 🖼

I have an assortment of photos and quotes. My favorite photograph is a black and white photo of the Golden Gate Bridge as it was being built. I enjoy all type of architecture including bridges. Unfortunately my camera does not do the original photograph any justice. Please take a moment to note the sequence in which the bridge was built. The average person might not pay much mind to such detail, but whenever I visit the Golden Gate Bridge, I am impressed by it's design, the precise engineering, the immense effort that was expended to design and build the structure and finally, it's inherent beauty. In my mind, the Golden Gate Bridge is architecturally brilliant and is a masterful work of human ingenuity, blood, sweat and tears. It is a testament to the good that humans can imagine and then achieve once they set their collective minds to work together for the common good.
Note:
- Built between January 1933 and May 1937
- Length = 1.7 miles
- Width = 90 ft.
- Weight = 840 million lbs.
- Tower height = 746 ft.
- Support cable length = 7,650 ft.

Do you ever want a relationship and then think about your past shitty ones then change your mind?

Before I got married, I absolutely avoided dating the opposite sex for that very reason of avoiding shitty relationships. From age 20 until age 25 when I got married, I did not get involved in any meaningful relationships with women because I was afraid that I would get hurt again. For me, the pain and suffering of being manipulated and deceived, wasn't worth my time or effort. So I avoided it like one avoids cancer.
I participated in activities that I enjoyed (music, tennis, chess, 5k road races, traveling) or activities that developed my skill set to prepare for a successful career as an engineer and musician. To that end, I performed with bands, earned two degrees (music and engineering), and worked with the developmentally delayed, where I met my wife. After my first and only girlfriend and I broke up, I decided to try something different. Instead of worrying about dating or falling in love, I simply lived my life enjoying every moment while also hanging out with my male friends who loved to compete, laugh and have a good time. Occasionally family and friends would question me about my sexuality, but I chose to ignore their rude comments because I knew that eventually I would meet the woman I was destined to meet, which is exactly what happened. My future wife was also working for the department of mental health as a pool supervisor and she was also a recent college graduate. The great thing about meeting her was that I was able to observe her, before we dated, working with young adults with severe handicaps and I could see that she was a kind, compassionate and loving person who actually cared about people and was not into playing head games, cheating or basically being a horrid person who would intentionally break my heart. This woman became my loyal confidant, supporter and best friend.
I do not want to bore you with all of the details of our relationship, but suffice it to say that the decision I made at age 20 to simply live my life and not worry about people and events that I cannot control, was the best decision I ever made. Why? Because it forced me to focus on what is important in life: "living each moment to the fullest and not worry about the future or live in the past"

Haladunk: itt a robotügyész, azaz: Mesterséges Intelligencia ügyész, ami 97%-os pontossággal működik (erre még a csodaország USA, Németország, Kanada stb. ügyészségei sem képesek)...

Kínában már a számítógép is börtönbe küldheti az embert – ezzel a nem túl barátságos felütéssel kezdi cikkét az Interesting Engineering és rögtön meg is magyarázzák, miért: írásukban egy olyan programot, illetve robotügyészt mutatnak be, ami adott esetben vádat is emelhet az elkövetőkkel szemben.
Az egyszerűbb számítógépeken is futtatható mesterséges intelligenciát a Kínai Tudományos Akadémia fejlesztette ki.
Nyolc bűncselekményt képes kategorizálni és az ügyekben vádat emelni.
Az általa ismert bűncselekménytípusok közé olyan esetek tartoznak, mint a hitelkártyákkal elkövetett csalás, testi sértés, tiltott szerencsejáték szervezése.
A rendszer az adott ügy paramétereinek betáplálásából kapott információk alapján hoz döntést a vádemelésről.
A számítógép 97 százalékos pontossággal működik, ami a kutatók szerint nagyszerű eredmény.
A kritikusok ezzel szemben úgy látják, hogy a hibahatár így is óriási, mert még mindig tévedhet. Többek szerint a gépet a hackerek is célba vehetik, akik így a bírósági eljárásokba is beavatkozhatnak.

Ja, a gép tévedhet 3%-ot, de az USA, Kanada, Németország stb. nyugati ügyészei általában 40-50%-ot tévednek és a korrupció nagyságrendekkel nagyobb, mint pl. Magyarországon... szóval: miről hazudik már megint a HVG, ami egy egyébként igaz hírmagot pocskondiáz, szokásos ellenzéki hazug módon.

Share a little about you

My name is Freya but you can call me Frey. I currently live in London. I’m Welsh and was brought up in Cumbria from the age of 5. 🌾 For work, I’m in design engineering, working as a technician in a machine shop.
🌸 Slightly more random childhood facts in no particular order… I grew up camping, travelling, climbing and skiing, catching frogs and building forts in the woods with my siblings. We loved water balloons, Yu-Gi-Oh cards, and air soft guns. Cozy coupe cars, jelly shoes, blacksmithing, the stars and alternative rock/grunge bands were my jam. I dreamed of living on a canal/narrowboat. I think the closest things to dolls that I really enjoyed was the doll house itself and Polly Pockets and what I enjoyed equally as much as playing with my toys was organising them 😂 I think I’m a type-A gal.
I want a van life or something like that, it’s actually less about travel and more about simplicity. The less cluttered I keep my external life, the easier it is for me to think clearly. I’m more able to answer cliche but important questions. Knowing myself is something I really value and it makes me a better person to those around me. I feel much more present and at peace. 🤍
I’m probably a classic 90s kid with a love of learning by doing.

Do you consider yourself unstoppable?

There's nothing I can't do.
Along those same lines, I could really do anything. I got amazing grades in my engineering and math classes, top of my class in a top-50 world university. But I let my morality and pickiness rule when it comes to my job. I have turned down a number of amazing offers because I don't want to work in Defense, or I refuse to work for Big Petroleum. Classmates of mine who barely passed are taking these offers, and I'm left with a few low-paying options. Am I arrogant to think I'm above the system or that I can only work for an honorable cause? Yes. I look down at these people as cop outs. I should be happy for them making 80k out of college, but I'm not; I loathe them. I pity that they need to succumb to making weapons that kill people or destroying the earth to suck oil. But secretly I envy these people that they can blissfully collect their paycheck without single qualm. I should just suck it up and take a position like those, but how can I truly have pride in my job, when my core beliefs conflict with it? I have too much pride for what I believe in, and I need to stop being such an arrogant ass, care about my own success for once, and just go along with the system. I can't take responsibility for all of humanity's problems. Money. I've been loaded (for my standards) and perfectly miserable, I've been broke and ecstatic. So it means nothing. Except you can't have what you need, like free time or ability to do what you want if you don't have enough money. I still can't get myself to internalize this. If I have enough to pay the bills and buy food, I stop thinking about it, when even a 10% or 20% increase, which really wouldn't be that hard to achieve, would make a noticeable difference in my life. Reputation. I'm not impressed by most of the people I'm forced to interact with, and I can't get myself to care about their opinion. Putting even a little bit of effort would make my relationship with them better, which would make my life so much easier. Nope, still don't care. Big life goals. When I was younger, I had clear goals and most of my effort went into achieving them. I was so fucking happy. My life made sense. Now I 'know' that success is so relative it's become meaningless to me. Be a great artist? What does that mean? Being popular? Where, in my home town? On my continent? Among the 0.2% of people who actually care? Does it mean producing the highest quality art (totally relative)? Even if I somehow managed it, it would most certainly mean 99.9% of people wouldn't be able to connect to my work, and that includes 'art professionals', which is the whole point of being an artist in the first place. I've spent first 25 years of my life studying and making art, then I spent a couple of years just learning how to support myself, and now that I am actually able to do what I've always wanted to do, I'm not doing it.

What kind of person are you?

I am a discreet and respectful person of your privacy so I expect the same in return. I'm the kind of person who gets to the cinema more than an hour before showtime. I get to the airport 5 hours before a flight. I keep extra socks, underwear, first aid supplies, chargers, and rain gear in my backpack at all times. I plan everything obsessively because I'm always convinced everything will go wrong and I must be prepared for everything. It sucks.
I'm the type of person that everyone assumes is an extrovert - I'm totally an introvert. I won't say anything behind your back that i won't say to your face- and at times that has been harsh for people - though they seem to like my honesty. I'm that guy who, when in my own little world, looks like he wants to kill everything. But as soon as you engage me in conversation, I am nice and chipper almost to the point of being creepy. I've been told I am too smiley too quick.
I come off as a go lucky type of guy , my life motto is " just smile and wave " . I'm a restless person , I'm studious ( mechanical engineer here ) , hardworking and concerned about my future . But I know where I'm heading towards , what my goals are, and more importantly that I'm content with my life . I'm 23 years old , and I just want to help others .That strange weird girl with a guy mentality and full of perverted humor. I've been called a guy before for my interest in video games, majoring in computer engineering, comics/manga, and my preference for dark beer. But I still fucking love dresses.
The kind of person that everyone thinks is happy and has a great life, makes jokes, looks good, while on the inside I want to run away from home and feel depressed for no reason i can find. I'm rather introvert, I like video games, mangas and animes. I love my cats. I'm usually rather quiet but can become giggly when in the right company.
I act cold and mean but in reality I'm just insecure and cannot interact with people properly.
I am weird as fuck. Often say things that lead to awkwardness on both sides. Then try to backtrack on what I already said, leading to more awkwardness. Then there is an awkwardness eruption when both sides are stumped as to what to say to end the interaction. And so I often avoid talking altogether, or I stick to very general subjects. Once things start getting personal, the awkwardness kicks in for me, and once it kicks in for me, the other person picks up on it and likely feels awkward. Then a vicious cycle entrenches itself with tension building on both sides.
I'm a huge pushover. I let people walk all over me and then I act like nothing is wrong. I bottle up anger and never tell them how I feel. Fucking hate it. I'm also a people pleaser, and am extroverted around my friends, but very shy when it comes to meeting new people.

If you had a family business, what do you think it would be? 👍 🙃

redoasis2017’s Profile Photo★ ☮ ♫ тєηα¢ισυѕ тσммαу™ ▩ ♚ ☻
An engineering firm.
My family is traditionally involved in more technical occupations - my grandfather was the director of an agricultural holding in former Eastern Germany, one of my uncles used to run a service business for elevators, another one formerly was a manufacturer of hosiery.
So given my parents' occupations and my personal interests, I could totally imagine such a family business as basically managing an office together. Following their footsteps and learning the same profession was something I actually considered for a while when I was younger. In another reality such thing could've maybe come true, who knows, haha.

What is your biggest regret?

nai269549’s Profile Photoʟᴇɪᴀɴ ♕
Trying to do too many things at the same time. Trying to get through things while already needed to go get help long time ago already. So pushing myself way too hard.
Be patient. Love yourself. Get to know who you are truly and learn to embrace that person. Before you know it the pandemic will be passed and you’ll be surprised how people gravitate towards confidence and self awareness! That I didn’t trust myself that my ex and her family were actually mentally abusing me.
Recently I realized I was too complacent at my previous job and I regret not trying to advance my career earlier. Hopefully I can turn things around this year.
Never trying to make more friends, or even ask girls out that I had a crush on in high school. Not asking people on dates like at all. I only did it once and she actually said yes (it didn't last too long because I moved) but if she said yes then who knows how many others would have, I didn't put myself out there. My first relationship, it was toxic and I was too young too deal with all the drama.
Being too invested in relationships.
Started smoking and later drinking. Thankfully I have quit smoking.
I hardly left my house, had no real friends. My biggest regret is not being with my mum in her final moments, I mean I would visit her every 2 days but it wasn’t good enough, I still hate myself for not being with my mum as she ascended to the place where only true angels go.
Drinking and blacking out and having a ptsd episode at my in laws house. I told them I didn’t want anything and couldn’t drink but they wouldn’t take no as an answer. Needless to say it didn’t go well. That was years ago.
Not learning an instrument as a child. It's so much harder as an adult. That I let people (mostly concerned family) talk me out of pursuing computer and electrical engineering in college. Med school never worked out, so if I could change one thing in my life, it would be that. I can't afford another bachelor's, but I'm learning to program now (never too late for that). I generally live with no regrets, but that is the biggest thing that comes closest to a regret.
In adult life, I'd have to say moving from California to Texas in an effort to satisfy my wife's insatiable material appetite and buying the big shiny house. Wife's gone now, house is gone now, and I live in a shitty rent house in Texas with no friends, and unable to move back because of agreements on geographic proximity concerning the child. In younger life, I was a very good musician. I got recruited to some really top notch music schools, but I listened to my high school counselor, and opted to go to a regular college in pursuit of a traditional white collar career. Turns out I just don't have the personality to survive long in an office environment, and I've got no outlet to express myself. I undoubtedly would've been much worse off financially, but my very being would have been a lot more satisfied.

Do you like how facts lead to arguments these days

When irrefutable facts and / or undeniable certainties are called into question, you have won the argument - this is the primary factor behind censorship, the silencing of dissent, the policing of thoughts and nearly every Leftist attempt at social engineering.

💢How many times a week do you experience "attention deficiency"? xD

Ambyrose21’s Profile PhotoRose
I wonder how Sigmund Freud would answer this question?
My pride would claim never, but the fact that I spend (waste) time posting on social networks would indicate otherwise, right? This is a difficult question to answer honestly so I will need to apply some reverse engineering. What would be my reaction if I posted a poem or reflection on askfm without any response? I would probably disable my account. So this indicates that I suffer from some form of attention deficiency. If true, then I estimate I am spending between 14 and 28 hours per week seeking attention. How pathetic is that? Not a statistic I would want on my resume.
Example of proposed resume:
Dear Employer,
I am submitting my resume for your consideration. I have several degrees and over 30 years experience as a network engineer. For hobbies, I write and post poems and reflections onto social networks where nobody reads my work. But I am persistent and I never give up. Even after several followers have accused me of being an attention seeker, I still continue to write hoping that one day someone will read one of my poems. Just one person....anyone...it doesn't matter. :)
I look forward to interviewing for your Network Engineering position. I believe that the fact that I suffer from "attention deficiency" will be an asset to your team for the following reasons:
- Meetings: during meetings I will suck all of the oxygen out of the room with my inane questions.
- Customer Service: I will dot the I's and cross the T's to ensure customer satisfaction. And I promise that interactions with each customer that should only last 5 minutes will last a minimum of one hour to guarantee 24x7 customer satisfaction along with my insatiable need for "attention."
- Communication: No worries there. Once I start talking everyone in the room will leave in disgust; but it will contribute to my eternal quest for attention.
Gotta love those folks on the internet who spend their entire life seeking attention, right?

My day went well, nah scratch it's great actually. Work is a bit chill and I got to catch up with some friends from college which is a rare occasion for us because everyone's so busy these days. Time seems to fly by so fast eh. How's your day going? :)

shaireen’s Profile PhotoShaireen
Is your work related to what you studied in college? I ask because I majored in music and then after realizing I could not make a decent living, I had to go back to college and earn a "useful" degree in engineering that would allow me to feed my family and provide adequate housing. Ah...if only I knew then what I know now. lol
My day is great because I just discovered another poet and writer G.K Chesterton. One of the greatest writers and intellects of the 20th century and his writing is NOT allowed in our public schools here in America. Can you imagine that? There is something terribly wrong with a (so called) "liberal" education system that intentionally excludes writers who are labeled as "unfit" because they oppose atheism, socialism, communism, wokeism, tribalism and globalism.
I am going to workout and then take my dog for a walk and practice some music. Have a good day Shaireen.

عادي اكون بدرس هندسة ومعدلي مقبول واهلي مفكريني جد رح اطلع مهندسة وانا بتبهدل حرفياً ب الدراسه ومخي سكر ومابدهم احول التخصص

держись подальше от инженерии...
stay away from engineering...
أبعدي عن الهندسة...
إن شاء الله تكون وصلت...

How did you choose your career domain 🤡🔪?

You know we all are like sheep tends to follow the trend same was in my case Lol i remember when i went fast for admission in electric engineering just like others .i don’t want to but i have to apply for Ee. Suddenly i hear the voice of an uncle don’t follow others follow your passion and dreams so that when you get a job you will never be bored and i just ignored every one and applied in software engineering.

My daughter. I never wanted kids, even though my parents were amazing (I'm adopted) I always thought I would make a terrible mother. I was on the Depo prevara shot and found out I was pregnant on my 21st birthday. I knew my options and it was a struggle. Obviously I had her and now almost 25 years later I wouldn't change it for anything.
Finishing a tough university grade. It was not a given for me, did grow up in a pretty tough neighborhood. My babies. Everything else pales in comparison. Funny enough my biggest source of pride was to suck it up and stop being proud for a moment to patch things up with my father. Having done so I moved back to the USA in order to finish my undergraduate degree. I've now been living in the US for 5 years and I finally have an actual relationship with him.
Seems a bit silly but I was probably one of the best softball players at my high school. Unfortunately they did a really poor job record keeping so about 4 years after I left they put up a record board and my name wasn't on it. The Athletic Director contacted my dad who had kept the records all four years and newspaper clippings. Everything. So I knocked that girl off the board and hold records that won't be beaten for a long time. Hits in a season. Career batting average and triples. I put a lot of time and effort into softball from the time I was 11. So yeah it feels pretty great and I'm incredibly proud of those accomplishments.
Attended university full time and earned an engineering degree (with no debt) while working full time nights. Wife and two kids were a big help; kept me happy, fed and in clean clothes the whole 5 years.
I take pride in not adding to other people's plates. I will always handle whatever responsibilities I'm given and you will not have to remind me. You won't have to worry I'm going to corner you with some long boring story, and I'll never ask you to help me move. I'm am low-maintenance, low-drama, and quietly balanced. I am not a hassle to anyone in any way. My inlaws, currently in my home on an open-ended stay, are none of these things.
My wife and I are completely debt free (except for the house) and we have a positive net worth. We have much more than enough to pay our house off, but we choose to invest it instead. All the money we have, we earned ourselves. I also drive a 12 year old car (Wife's car is 7 years old), live in a modest house in a modest neighborhood. We don't have a lot of expensive toys, hobbies, or gadgets. We have friends in our social circle who are living much more extravagantly, who have confided how deep in debt they are. They would likely be shocked if they knew how much my wife and I are worth, but we keep it to ourselves.
I take pride in being a teacher. I don't know if I'm any good or not but I wake up every day excited to go to my job and is be lying if I didn't cry when those kids learn how to write their name properly or can do simple math.

اكتر ماده كنت بتكرها

ماده ال production engineering
كانت جزئين منفصلين ... كنت بكرههم الاتنين عادى 😂
بس الاول كنت فاهماه وتعبت فيه على الآخر علشان كله حفظ ومصطلحات جديده ومخططات كبيره بتتحفظ نصا ... حرفيا بذلت فى الماده دى مجهود يحترم والله 😂، والصوره دى نبذه عن المجهود 😂...الجزء التانى عينك ما تشوف إلا النور 😂 منظر الكتاب يخض اقسم بالله 😂
اكتر ماده كنت بتكرها

Oh that’s cool! Even we did all that on bread board, although electronics part is not my major subject, but logic part is :)

PulkitSharma62’s Profile PhotoJustice
Although I studied Electronic Engineering, which included both analog and digital, it is also valuable to understand digital logic as a Software Engineer or a Network Engineer. Before retiring, I worked as a Network Engineer for 40 years. During that time I had to learn various systems i.e. routers, switches, firewalls, load balancers, network management, network analyzers, modems, multiplexers, etc. These systems all had operating systems and a user interface that required some understanding of digital logic. After all, if I am taking a statistical reading of network performance or perhaps configuring an access list on a Cisco router or creating a rule within my firewall, I must understand digital logic to comprehend how the variables and instructions I am coding affect the input/output and the intended result/behavior.

I often get inspiration from things I watch and also just things that I come across IRL in general lol In this case the main inspiration was a video where a character that a youtuber draws suddenly got a wario-esque rival 😆

TobbeAsks’s Profile PhotoTobbe
My inspiration comes from both my music background and my engineering background. With music I have been experimenting with tone, rhythm and frequency since I was very young. Producing a good (pleasing) sound inspired me to practice, experiment and work harder.
With engineering I was tasked with designing networks and finding technical solutions to business related problems, which I found both interesting and inspirational.
And least I forget my 12th grade High School English teacher (Ms. Holmes) who taught me how to write and give a coherent presentation. Ms. Holmes was, without doubt, the most well informed, creative and articulate teacher I ever had. She knew how to motivate me and to inspire me; and for this I am indebted and eternally grateful.
Sorry for not answering your question. It was my fingers. My fingers refused to obey the electronic impulses that my brain transmitted to them and instead they did what they damn well pleased. Nooooooooooooooo!
