about me

Hello, everyone! My name's Marissa and I'm happy to be here. As a kid, I grew up on DBZ, among other titles. I became more interested in anime about a year ago, when I watched parts of KGNE. Since then, I've been hooked. Now I love anime, especially anime that is romantic. I'm also a fan of shoujo manga, as you can see from my avatar.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My Rating Scale:

5- A masterpiece. I love this show to death.

4.5- Exceptional.

4-Excellent. I really liked this. It stands out to me.

3.5- Very Good.

gin-left: 5px; padding: 0px">3- Good (Average). I enjoyed it, but I've seen better, and I've seen worse.

2.5- Acceptable / Decent.

2- Below average. I liked some aspects, but other things were annoying and/or painful for me to watch.

1.5- Eh. Take it or leave it.

1- Ew. There was very little I liked about this title.

0.5- Completely horrible.

All of my ratings are based strictly on enjoyment.

Actually, I really hated physics in high school.  It was much more the calculus that interested me, and calculus based physics is where it's really at.  High school physics really doesn't mean anything, as it doesn't seriously touch upon any of the important topics.  F=ma is more than working with 2 givens and 1 unknown. =P

What are you struggling with in calculus, by the way?  Having an intensive three years of the stuff under my belt, I'm well acquainted with the high-school level basics, and I'm sure I could help you out if you'd like.  Once you get the basics of derivatives and integrals down you're set...at least for the AP tests.  Can't say the same about higher level stuff lol, but that comes with time.  And I wouldn't say you're all that young for being a senior, either; I didn't turn 18 til 2 months after graduation.

If you're interested in bio and chem, either chemical engineering or environmental would suit you well - think of environmental engineers as hybrid chemical/civil engineers.  Environmental engineers work with some of the same concepts as civil, but I can't say I'm TOO overly familiar with the field to note any major similarities/differences.  I do know the current (and HUGE) emphasis for environmentals is wastewater management, but you'd also work with pollution control, air purification, hazmat control (as a possibility, depends on where you work) and the like.  That said, I think environmentals would focus more on projects like dams than bridges, as bridges/buildings are the forte of a structural civil engineer.

Should I get into USC, here's the degree I'd be pursuing as a structural:

I can't say much without spoiling it, but all you need to know is that it's tag is: "Do you believe in love after death?". :D awesooome

I haven't always wanted to be an engineer, though I've always been interested in engineering (specifically structural.)  In fact, prior to registering for college I had planned on a business degree, and I randomly decided to skimp out on that due to its foreign language recs.  Since I adamantly enjoyed calculus back in high school, I decided to pick a math-focused degree instead, and I decided upon either civil engineering or aerospace.  Aerospace would have paid a bit more, but its job opportunities are limited to certain areas (like Texas or southern Cali.)  Being that I absolutely hate southern California and want to get out asap, I decided upon the former, as civil engineers can pretty much work wherever they want since they're always in high demand and short supply.  Plus, it's definitely a solid choice for a long term career, and should I happen to eliminate my bachelor/single status in the future, that's a desirable trait to have in a job (or even if not, I can inflate my savings account - I'm a stingy bastard, that I am.)

I guess I settled on Civil-Structural on a whim, though.  Civil engineering has a ton different branches, so much so that in recent years it's been split into Civil and Environmental engineering.  The environmental branches tend to emphasize chemistry and such a lot more, though, whereas structural tends to stick more strictly to physics.  If you enjoy math/physics it's definitely something to look in to.

Oh, and you're a senior in high school this year, aren't you?  What are you looking at doing for college?
