Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I just found out that a professor is coming to give a lecture at my college. The interesting thing is that she is actually the wife of a professor/writer that changed my life and whose work has inspired me a hell of a lot (he is a philosophy professor who was also trained as a psychoanalyst, and I have wanted to be a psychoanalyst ever since I read one of his books). I'm definitely going to go to the lecture, but I'm really worried that I'll come off as rude if I try to talk to her. "Hey, your husband changed my life" isn't necessarily something that she wants to talk about, you know?
Do you have any tips on how I can avoid seeming obnoxious while still (possibly) doing some sort of networking kinda thing?
I feel a bit lost as far as my career path goes, because while I could get a lot of help/information from the psychology department here about cognitive-behavioral sorts of perspectives, I don't really know where I am supposed to go in order to get where I want to end up. I've always kind of hoped that I could get in contact with this guy or maybe even find some sort of way to work under him (I doubt that would be possible).
