I got my bar roll number back in October, but I haven't really thought of practicing yet. I'm working as a landman right now earning as much or more than many of the lawyers I clerked for.

But I am going to flip the experience I'm getting right now to hopefully get an in house counsel position for an energy company soon.

Most people that are getting MD's aren't doing it because of the money. You can make money elsewhere with the amount of work and dedication that goes into becoming a doctor. You have to have passion for medicine or you wont make it. Also, once you're a physician you'll never be out of a job...money is just a perk. Plus I'm enjoying life to the fullest and i'm in my first year of medical school so it just depends on how you allocate your hours
true.. my little sister just finished her first semester at med school.. i'm not jealous of her at all. i don't knock it but i couldn't do it. but you're right she's got the passion for it. she doesn't have much free time but no sacrifice no victory i guess

I wonder how flooded the computer analysts and web designers market is going to be in about a decade. Just look at the posts in here and the number of kids that cannot do anything but fu*k with the computer currently in high school.

You're a dumbass.

You the type who will be making millions but hate everything because money is all that will matter to you and you'll forget that you're suppose to live a life, not live by a piece of paper.

Word though, whatever makes him feel better cause he's poor.

"Some people are so poor, all they have is money"

there will always be the endless conversation of "does money equal happiness?"

I'm with you on this one though I didn't always have that way of thinking. IMO your quality of life is what really matters. Some people are willing to sacrifice compensation for other things if they know that having more of the other won't necessarily mean they'll be happier.

My advice to ALL of you, regardless of what your philosophy is, is make sure that you spend your money on EXPERIENCES and creating memories. I think when most of us think of higher salaries we're attracted by what potential things we could by. But, I believe the perceived happiness that money "buys" is experiences...memories that will live with us. All the money I spent on clothes growing up didn't leave me with anything now as an adult. But, the memories of my youth...priceless.

learning this now ...spent so much money on bullsh*t in my life and have nothing to show for it now ...

im currently also making the most money ive ever made in my life so far, but coincidentally im the most unhappy ive ever been ...i have a "good" job which pays decent, but it absorbs 5 out of my 7 days in a week....sometimes i feel like saying fu*k the money (its not even THAT much) and fu*k all the material sh*t, bi*ches, etc. and let me just quit my job, and just go travel the world or some sh*t..i dont even care where i end up...otherwise the alternative could potentially end up being a life of boredom/unfulfillment/depression/regret

wish i had the balls to do somethin about it tho..

My buddies cousin got a job in the IT department about 4 years ago as a computer technician and all he had was his high school diploma.

Dude got the Comptia A+ and the Comptia Net+. After that he immediately started getting experienced and soon after got the MCSE and CCNA.

Now dude is caking it and has the experience as well as the certs as almost any bachelors level IT job.

He makes more money than some people who graduated right after university.....I gotta say he was always interested in IT.

I feel you breh. When it started tripping me out was when i would watch friends, who i wouldve perceived to have nothing, living the sh*t out of life. One my real life role models (cause as a dude from the hood i never really had a role model) was a UC Berkeley grad and i watched this riding around in his beat up hooptie, making sh*t money, but doing what he wanted...he was building his business. and he was happy. had women. still managed to live in a nice area of santa monica (albeit with roommates) and still partied, traveled, did whatever he wanted. it made me question what brings happiness. i made more money than he did but i was trapped. i was locked to a cubicle most hours of the day. i didnt have that FREEDOM, which i learned is super important to me.



man, just do it. plan it out. be strategic. you will never feel more alive. i wouldnt say it unless i was planning the same thing.

Systems analyst is just a "glorified helpdesk" position, with less user interaction/ less phone calls/ less bullsh*t.

I work for as an IT Analyst (Systems Analyst I), I moved up directly from the helpdesk. The only difference between me and systems analyst II or systems analyst III is the amount we make, and system analyst II & III get pagers and are on-call 24/7, while my day ends at 5pm.

Basically all i do is:
  • maintain the intranet portal for our 150+ departments
  • provide a.ssistance with SharePoint site navigation
  • SharePoint site development/implementation
  • take part in IT meetings by preparing reports and documentations
  • work on the change control board
  • process change request forms
  • maintain the ITIL Knowledge base
  • assist with implementing the knowledge base into the IT service manager application
  • work on "projects" individually or with a team
  • Get quotes from vendors and service providers
  • provide feasibility reports, swot analysis, ROI analysis or any other financial analysis
  • be the liaison between the IT department and upper management, helping them understand how investments in IT can support the organizations strategic objectives.

On a typical day I come into the office at 8:30am, Check my voicemail/email for new messages. I check for any change request forms that need to be approved/denied, then make the requested changes. Then I'd look to see if there are any proposed changes to the ITIL knowledge base, then make the requested changes. (On a normal day there are 30-40 requests.)

I'd post any announcements/system outages onto the SharePoint site, and remove old system outage alerts. If needed, I submit an incident ticket/helpdesk ticket for major outages that I cannot fix.

There's usually a meeting once or twice a week...once in a blue moon the schedule is jam packed with meetings, then there will be nothing for a while...then jam packed again..then nothing. It's the same pattern over and over.

I go to lunch around 1pm, come back at 1:30 and spend the rest of the day processing the remaining requests, and browsing facebook or boxden. Then leave around 5pm.

That sounds like a dope job it doesn't sound stressful but have a busy day. How did you get the job and do you have a degree or just got certifications?
