not that anyone will prob read this.. Oh well here it goes..

age: 20
location: Fort Worth, TX area..
Real Name: Aaron Wouldntyouliketoknow

I am basicly way in over my head with you peeps.. I mean I know a lil about this stuff but geez not even close to what you guys do.. Gadget Guru gadgets are pretty damn cool.. I am a hands on person.. I like messing with stuff.. I have ALWAYS been fasinated with robotics and AI.... I am a pretty simpler person with A.D.D. so i am pretty sure I could never do what you guys do... I have recently been getting into choreography lately and been practicing some moves.. Truth is I have NO DAMN CLUE WHAT I WANT TO DO WITH MY LIFE!!! I have takin some college on Medical but its not really something I want to do..
I started posting here because I found a post on yahoo and was kinda drawn into it.. I had no idea what kinda forum it was till after I joined.. I am one when it comes to following where my heart takes me.. *hints the name Heart*.. I don't know.. Just alive but not living..

Don't worry Heart...the people that want to read it will.

The world of computers (programming Web dedign, etc) can be fun. You at least seem to be fluent with computers. It might be a direction you want to consider. I haven't been doing it as long as others, but at my age (44) after many years of retail management, I much prefer it over having disgruntled customers scream at me half the day.

If I could make one recomendation on "What you want to do with your life" I would suggest NOT to make it retail management.

well here is the prob.. I am very fluant with computers.. In fact I am NEVER not on the computer.. I live on the computer.. What sucks is that I dont have the knowledge of computers that I should by now.. I mean seriously! My mouse has been clicked more times than seconds I have been alive.... I mean being into a programmer or designer would be awsome but it is just too much for me to take in.. Espacially trying to learn online while people type out your instructions... :wink:

It's easier than you think. I'm not an expert at design (yet)...but I have learned almost everything I know about design "online". And it was mostly "not" from forums. I just enjoy tech forums like this because I do like to help people and do get some education from them.

Bigwebmaster did a much better job with this place than I did with my own. I had an extremely similar concept...but with less resources. Mine didn't fly. His did. I'm glad to be a part of it.

Don't feel alone. I'm 44 with no job. The only thing I know for certain is that I DON'T want to go back to retail -- otherwise, I'd have a job. At least the Freelancing helps pay the bills.

You should b_heyer. If I knew what I know now then, and know what you appear to, I'd be rich by now.

Goals and dreams ARE important. If you can get your hands on a few tapes of Lou Holtz seminars...watch them...it will change your thinking if not your life.

(PS...if you don't know who Lou Holtz is...you should do some reading on his life.)

I know I am going to do something with computers, I'd really like to get into Newhouse School of Communications but they have a 32 grand tuition and I'd need one helluva scholarship to consider it.

Welcome to the boards, Heart! :D

I also have very little idea what I'm going to do with my life. Probably something with computers, but I don't know what that something will be. I have also been considering something in the field of Biotechnology, I find it quite fascinating. Decisions, decisions... Oh well, I suppose I have a while to decide, I'm only in the 10th grade. :icontongue:

Hi.

I'm Melinda. I make web apges...although not professionally. I have yet to trick someone into actually paying me, but just you wait! I'm 21 and most sit around being a student so I can get on my father's insurance. I twiddle with web pages a bit, mostly just my personal site <a href="http://www.neogoddess.com" target="_blank">Wheee</a>

I'm a lazy person, so I mostly use dreamweaver. Although I’m trying to break that habit and learn a little css and try to do my web pages the old fashion way...actually working on them. Woo, I can like change my font color, that's about it so far.
