    Im going to do econ

    In healthcare ATM, was going to do RN --> Medicine, but pretty jaded on that, happened to find out that I madly love economics, so I start my BEonSci mid 2010. I'll just keeping working as RN till then, money is great and hours are flexible as.

    Should be good.

    People who do Med should understand that it's not as easy as "oh I got into radiology lol" the amount of consultants who were like 'Don't do med, do dentistry/business/consultation' was insane, almost every single one, I had alot of surgical consultants honestly straight up tell me "I hate my life"

    It's silly hard to get into certain specialties here, and in alot of cases it's just a closed shop.

    My new years resolution is to go back and finish school via the CAE (Centre for Adult Education). I left for many reasons that aren't relevant anymore, most of which I will admit were pretty stupid. But I am mature enough now to realise the importance of a good education, particularly in these tough times and I'm not going to wait until I am unsuccesful in my dream job to seek an alternate choice of career.

    go to school for something intelligent (ie a science like computers). Do it and do it well. Master the fuck out of it. My first job out of college paid 6 figures. A year later my 2nd job pays almost 40% more. liberal arts are all BS. It will get you nowhere. Law and medicine (radiology,neurology, etc) are the two options if you want to go big time. Stick with computers though [​IMG] you can't beat the hours and you don't need to go in debt to do it.

    Or you can just date SoCal2NYC.


    FWIW I'd trade the ability to buy anything I want for the ability not to be an IT guy.

    People are going to say no because it's D&G but it will be cut nicely and while the quality won't match the price, it's not like it's going to auto-destruct after 10 minutes of wear (despite what some people say).

    So it's overpriced and you probably knew that already but you like it then just get it, I see nothing gaudy about the design.


    I really like it and saw at NM yesterday, the leather is buttery soft, very comfortable and fit great. The price actually isn't bad at retail for $995 considering other D&G leather jackets are usually $1500+ and doesn't have any monogram or visible D&G logo. I'd still wait and try and catch it on sale though.

    Thanks!

    I'm trying to decide if I should size down one size on this Apolis CPO. Context's measurements were small by about 1.5 inches (total of 3!) in the chest, but it is fully quilted and is basically a jacket. One size lower should be an inch smaller (actually two total) in the chest and an inch narrower in the shoulders. Otherwise, it should be the same. The shoulders on all sizes are a bit wide.

    I'm completing a BA in a liberal arts area, so I long ago accepted that I'll probably never be able to buy whatever I want on a whim. I'm OK with that, though. I like nice things, but would rather do something I truly enjoy rather than something that pays really well, but I dislike.

    With regards to buying expensive stuff, it's a common perception upon coming to a place like this. Even after you're acclimated, there's still a distinction between what a novice would perceive as costly and baller status. When I joined, I thought it was comical how people were paying more than $50-$60 for denim, $30 for a button-up, etc.

    As you learn more about this stuff and gain a better appreciation for things such as construction, detailing, and fit, those same prices don't cause the same degree of sticker shock.

    @ziss would it shrink just a tad bit after a wash? I think it's a good casual fit. you're too used to MTM =p

    You are right about the MTM, wahwho [​IMG] Sometimes I obsess far too much about fit. It won't shrink because it is wool/mink/cashmere. Actually, I just tried on the CPO with another shirt over my t shirt and it fits better. I could maybe lose an inch of the chest, but not off the shoulders without it being too tight. It looks a lot better with a BD under it. It's an awesome shirt. Time to sell my EG CPO...

    ^Definitely go down a size, just by numbers the fit would be more proportionate. Nice kop btw.
