Welcome to /eh/

Where everything is just... eh...

/eh/ is not for crying, /rnb/ is for crying.

Computer science or electrical engineering. What should i study? What would be my job prospects in both fileds?.I live in Estonia so I`m in bad luck because we dont have a Sillicon valley here and there is very little manufacturing going on, so I guess i`d better choose something completely different(like healthcare or the army), but I really want to choose either CS or EE. I`m not chosing computer enginering because I think that it offers much less jobs than software development(especially web dev), while with EE i`m thinking that i could come in handy in a variety of places, not to mention I could just start out as a simple electrician with a degree(thus more qualified and more promising career). But i`m scared to take EE because it`s engineering and I`m afraid I will suck at it, because it`s kinda hard right? Also there are little engineering jobs here, but more front end web dev jobs(which I sincerely hate).
So please help decide my future because I do hae to make a decision fast and I dont want to fuck up my life. Thank you!

First, thanks for dropping by to visit us all the way from /eh/stonia.

Whichever of the two subjects you choose not to study in school could potentially be learned on your own, so don't forget that when pursuing your dreams.

John Smith 17/07/17(Mon)02:28 No. 46138

Don't be afraid that your gonna fuck up your life by choosing the wrong career path John

Personally choose whichever you have the most experience in if your not experienced in either than ask your self 'Do I have a creative side to me?' by creative do you have the desire to make stuff work

If you do then try CS if not and assuming your good at math or prepared to become good at math, electrical engineering is a fine career path

Sincerely John

Hey John,

John here. I'm taking Electrical Engineering and going into my third year at school. I dont know what your skills/situation is, but I know electrical engineering and computer science have a lot of uses. I would recommend reading about the classes or projects that a CS or EE might do.

Dont worry about the money, you can make tons or little money in any science/engineering field. It just largely depends on how out going you are/willing to do learning outside the classroom. It also doesn't hurt to be decent at talking to folks and make friends.

Yesterday I was going through the laundry in my dryer and found my earbuds. I thought they would be dead from the water and the plastic was a bit melted, but they still work. Anyone else have luck like this?

Things are getting difficult lately. I don't want out or anything drastic like that, but this overbearing feeling of dread/melancholy is really weighing on me. I'm fighting to get over it and see my situation as a good one again, but once I get into this hole it's hard getting out of it again.

I'm very thankful for both of you taking the time to write me. I'll work up the courage and plan to see a doctor soon. The way it is around here, with a little luck our letters will still be around then, and I'll try to write back and let you know how I am.

I went to the doctor and they had me run some tests. Now results are saying some enzyme or another in my liver is out of whack. I have an appointment on monday, and a referal to a specialist soon after that.

None of this is helping much with my mood. I'm fighting it, but I can feel myself slipping back into the mindset I was in back in March. I'm scared I'm going to go in and get diagnosed with something deadly, cancer or something. Please keep me in your prayers.

I got into a fight several days ago. Some gentlemen took issue with a gesture I made in a parking lot, a misinterpretation as it was towards my female coworker whom I've no intention of courting. Afterwards, when I left the store, he confronted me. I threw 78 cents worth of various coins at him while questioning his sanity in regards to my "finger guns."

I lost, but he grabbed my shirt and then my leg during the proceedings. The following blows to my guard and the back of my head did not hurt, and I'm completely unharmed save two knuckles having been scraped.

Looking back, I had much more fun then I've had in a long time, and it made me hope you were enjoying your summer, too.

Wishing you the best,

John Smith 17/07/23(Sun)08:09 No. 46151

John, are you telling me you spent the better part of an argument throwing coins at a man? In hindsight, your weaponized currency is probably the reason it escalated to a fight. Regardless though, I'm glad to hear you had a good time. It's been too long since I've had a good scrap--they become less and less common, the more mature company you keep.

I was forced to sit on the other side of the bus today as my usual set was taken. I the same street but through a different window, it felt like taking a new bus down the same road. I don't want this to happen again.

yours sincerely

Hello John

My office has no set assigned desks but for the last year I've been the only one sitting at a particular desk. A new employee has started sitting at the desk I prefer. Could this be a similar feeling?


John Smith 17/07/20(Thu)16:52 No. 46144

It seems to be, yes.

John Smith 17/07/22(Sat)20:31 No. 46149

I'm curious as to how a workplace could have unassigned desks.

However, I would take a guess that these events are worse than having to sit on the opposite side of the bus, because maybe the offender won't be on that bus at the same time the next day. At the workplace, you know that person is going to be there on their assigned days.

When I have the option to choose a location (parking, seats, anything), I always make sure to pick one that I think most people would find inconvenient. That way, there is a less chance of someone breaking my routine.

I had a date with a girl yesterday. But, like every other date I've had in the past seven or eight years, it ended miserably. I've given up on trying to be interesting. Life is just /eh/.

But in other news, I am drinking Diet Dr. Pepper.

As do I. It really is a delicious beverage.

John Smith 17/07/21(Fri)00:47 No. 46146

I never have acquired the taste for diet drinks. The aftertaste of the fake sugar still puts me off.

Cherry Dr Pepper, however, is something I appreciate because it very nearly approaches the flavor of Cheerwine. Another convincing Cheerwine imitation is Rockstar Revolt Black Cherry.

John Smith 17/07/22(Sat)20:25 No. 46148

I feel sorry that it took you 7-8 years to give up, but I'm not sure what's worse: Giving up only after a couple of years or at least putting in the effort like you did.

I hope you enjoyed your Dr. Pepper.

I tried light ranch dressing today. It was good. A suitable replacement for full fat ranch.

I love steamed green beans with balsamic and garlic.

Wow John. Thanks for this tip.
I just finished a steamed artichoke and it would have been better with this dressing about, I am sure.

Agreed Steamed veggies are the best

Dear John,
How do you feel about walks? I personally love them, night or day, especially when the park I walk in is empty.
Regards, John

I like to walk in the middle of the night. I have trouble sleeping due to stress and it's a nice way for me to get my stressful thinking out of the way and relax.

John Smith 17/06/18(Sun)22:08 No. 46087

Dear John

I've only done day walks, but I'd like to do a nightwalk sometime. Though it would mess up my sleep pattern a bit.


John Smith 17/07/17(Mon)02:19 No. 46136

I love to walk at night with my headphones on while listening to orchestral music especially if its a little chilly really cleats my mind you know
