For the rest of my life? I welcome suggestion, but I'd like to think my life is worth a bit more.. I came into college as a Finance major but left cause I was a bit unhappy though I was doing great. Fell in love with what I did in the East Asian HIstory department, but...I don't want to become a professor or anthropologist. Just doesn't excite me as much. I respect my professors and mentors in the department, but I don't see myself becoming a scholar. I think I'm too cynical, too obstinate. I'm thinking about going into marketing or something around there cause I took a few advertising/marketing classes last semester and seem to like it. Talking to the professor, it seems as if you don't have to be in those majors to prove you're good at it. Hopefully that works out for me.
Also part of me not wanting to go further is I really don't want to move abroad unless it's an absolute last option. I'd miss my family here too much, and having lived abroad for nearly a year last year, little things about America I miss too much. The Nets, obviously. I'm the only guy within my major that loved sports. Everyone was a casual Illini fan when we had our magical run, but I was some sort of anomoly being a sports fan. Well, baseball and soccer were pretty big for some others, but nothing like my love for the Nets. I had once missed this required Tea Ceremony event to watch the Nets face the Pistons last year on ESPN, since I don't get Nets games often...boy did I get lambasted for that one. Don't regret it though, it was during our 15 game win streak and we socked it to those *****es.
