Yay, more seagull shots from St. Augustine!
I'm chilling at home in Roswell today to celebrate Glenn's Birthday! Happy 20th Birthday Glenn!
As for the latest on my quest to find something to do/be after I graduate, there's basically two viable options:
A) Become a super-engineer and go to grad school for engineering
B) Become a manager of a company and perhaps even use my background as a CompE
Now, I basically chose Tech because I liked computers going out of high school. I learned a whole bunch about computers thanks to Tech, but I've also discovered that I don't want to spend my life doing engineering. I could choose to teach engineering, but I'd rather start to move on from this field.
Last night, my dad and I brainstormed ideas together. We discovered Tech's neighbors over at GA State not only offer an MBA program (great b/c it's in state), but they offer an international plan where you spend a month in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, a month in Paris, France, a few days in D.C., and two weeks in China. Additionally, they require you to be relatively good in either French, Chinese, or Portuguese as you will also have a 4 month internship in one of the three countries abroad. Naturally, I'm going to choose France. My knowledge of French is very limited, at best, but I should have quite a bit of time to start learning. I don't have to be fluent, but good enough to hold basic coversations. So it looks like it's time for me to learn a fourth language! haha...
The really cool parts about this program are that it only takes 14 months so the worst case scenario is I lose one year of time studying, I have an MBA, I've learned French, and I've spent 6 months abroad! Sounds great! And if things go according to plan, many more opportunities open up such as the possibility of managing my own company, or someone else's, much better results in the stock market, or even professorship. Plus, I could even go for a DBA (Doctorate in Business Administration) afterwards. This plan sounds far more appealing than becoming some "super-engineer" and spending who knows how many hours per day in lab doing engineering stuff.
Phew! So yeah, that's the latest. Sounds like a fantastic plan!
