    i wouldn't mind living in chicago

    Of course, many areas of Chicago aren't so great. But that's not even the point. It's a relative issue.

    If you want to live in Chicago, and you're from...man...even Michigan or something. Fine. That's a victory for you. You got out of Michigan.

    Living in the same area you were born in is not typically the mark of success.

    My hometown has the highest teenage pregnancy rate in the UK. And Europe, so its not a fab place. I'd like to get out but I don't hate it here, I just feel I can't go much further with my career and I'd like a change for the better.

    Got full marks in my funeral piece exam, hurrah!

    Every time I hear Detroit I think of GM factories closing and workers standing outside in the rain.

    The rain that masks their tears.

    I want to do with you

    the best way to get a girlfriend is to talk to girls who you are interested in

    if they seem to also be interested, you should pursue it

    Yeah, this is silly.

    First, I gotta speak up for math and science for non-scientists. If you want to go into business, poor quantitative ability is what'll screw you when you're trying to get a job. Same for public policy. Med school. Practically everything, really. More abstractly, it's a really good way to think that will help you make better decisions about real life.

    There already are cooking classes; personal hygiene is your parents' job to teach you; college career centers teach job interview techniques; I wouldn't want any teacher's advice on how to get a girlfriend (check out those 1950's instructional videos -- it's hilarious).

    I write about math here:

    When I look back at my high school self, I am sure glad that nobody asked me what I wanted to be and that I shouldn't even try to expand my horizons. I would never have grown up. That is exactly what high school is for.

    Anyways, finished my last exam of undergrad today! Now on to grad school.

    Lots of people like where they were born

    Even if you think you've got a "better" job than them, if they're happy with where they are and what they're doing, then you don't "win"

    edit: "winning" is an absurd concept here anyway

    if you're thirty fucking years old and you're facebook stalking people you haven't seen in over a decade to make a chart to see who "won" from high school you aren't winning

    in fact, you're losing

    because you're a loser
