I have a B.S. in Industrial Engineering (one of the few fields hiring during the job slump) but I chose to become an Acoustician and am now a masters candidate in Architectural Acoustics (sound but like for buildings or something) at the University of Florida. To me asking someone if they like music is akin to asking them if they like food or Jon Hamm; it's ridiculous, of course they do. The salient question is which kind of Jon Hamm do you like. Personally I like to believe that I have an eclectic taste, but in the end I keep listening to the same Jon Hamm over and over again. An interesting tangent is that over the summer I saw Jon Hamm in New York in an apple costume. He was being read a poem by Kristen Schaal which was written by Eugene Mirman.
If I were (don't worry I am going to!) to sum up my character in one word it would be ardent. I like things and some things I like a lot. I chose not to get a job in a field that paid fairly well especially given the economy because I did not like that thing. Instead I've chosen a niche field with very little promise of return because it's cooler. Last summer I went to Japan and hung out in Tokyo by myself because I thought it would be interesting.
Whenever I am waiting on a flight to go home I check the boards in the airport to see if there is somewhere else I can go and on a handful of occasions I don't go home (until much later of course). Sometimes I like to identify as a hobo of tomorrow. Here tomorrow is to be interpreted as the 50's idealistic tomorrow wherein the sky was the limit; I cannot afford space travel.
If I were to sum up my life in one word it would be impoverished, but I hope that my eulogy will read "kickass".
