I need warm people who love to touch, hug, kiss and Stroke...what can i say..

so if law wasnt ur passion why didnt u study a different MA? and ur only 26, u still have time.
i went back to school b/c i used to go out with a Doc and he told me do PhD atc atc..i think i will do it and thats why i went back, i dont need the degree for Promotion or more money, My license investments is better then MA/MBA but i really really love to study.

I've wanted to leave Singapore since I was 16 and I finally got the chance to do it 10 years later. I'd like to get a job here because I'm specialising in human rights law and Singapore has no human rights, so if I go back I'd either go back to a law firm, which I hate, or to the government, which is comfy but not something that I want to do, so my options are quite limited.
in a lot of ways i envy you, ur free and im so not but on the other hand i never feel alone or out of place, i can always jump to my car drove 20 minutes and meet everyone i know.
why u wanted to leave Singapore? it looks like a great place.
i hope ur having fun in london, i visit this great city 2 years ago and maybe i will be back in august.
i could never live there b/c i cant take the cold.
i sound so weak LOL

Yes, I often hear those complaints that education stifles creative thinking, and so on... But my experience is that it does the complete opposite.

Now, I think there can be two explanations for this:

1 - People who are bitter for some reason towards the educational system, and since they did not succeed in it, they try to dismiss the entire system by saying it's just about fitting the mould and nothing more.

2 - People who have actually followed courses that are made to "manufacture" people and make them fit into a mould.
I went to university, I was also a kind of alien because I was supposedly "too good" a student to go to university (yes in France university's supposed to be crap, if you're a good student you go the the "grandes écoles"). So my experience was definitely positive, and I have no doubt that it encouraged free thinking and made me see new prospects and so on.
Believe me, at university, the one thing we're desperately trying to do is to get students to think for themselves, and to be able of independent and criticial thinking, and they rarely are capable of this (often they cannot analyze a discourse critically, or produce their own work without using/plagiarizing the Internet).
But it's true that it's not always the case. My brother did a journalism course, and he was extremely disappointed in it, because he felt that precisely, instead of teaching them how to think about their role in society as journalists, and how they could make things better, they only taught them how to reproduce the existing system with all its flaws (for instance, rules like "an old woman getting mugged 2 miles away is more important than a thousand Africans dying of starvation thousands of miles away").

So, if I look at my own experience, this statement about education is completely false, but I know that depending on the type of training that you have followed, you can sometimes have that problem.
Anyway, education and culture are certainly not overrated. A lot of bad things that happen, happen because of ignorance, and it's something you can notice everyday.

tripwires, you went to law school?

I am considering doing it, since it is the best way to become President. What is your takeaway from it? Your life and job now?

More like 2040

Average age of American Presidents upon taking office is 51. In 2040, I'll be 50-51.

Come on, time to change it up some more. 2008-12 we saw the first black guy, 2016 we'll see the first woman, in 2020 we'll see the first young tennis legend.

I totally understand; a lot of my friends are like that too. Actually I wish I felt that kind of connection with my family (my extended family, not my immediate family). I'm not that close to them and I think it's special to be close to your extended family.

I was sick of being in the same country my whole life. Singapore is such a small place that your social circle is limited and you don't really get to expand your experiences unless you travel. I've met done so many things in London in the past 2 months that I never got to do in Singapore, and met so many people from so many different countries, whereas in Singapore you pretty much only know Singaporeans. The worldview is pretty limited in that sense, you know?

I know what you mean about the cold though. I'm looking forward to going home for the Christmas break to escape the cold...but I'll probably complain about the heat after 5 minutes outdoors. it's normal to not be able to handle the cold if you're not used to it so you're not weak at all.

I'll still be here next August so if you do visit, let me know.

Yeah I went to law school but it's an undergrad degree in Singapore, so we don't spend as much money as you Americans on a law degree. I'm doing my Masters now in human rights law and I worked in a law firm for a year, which was one of the worst years of my life. So awful. Fucking insane hours, insane stress levels, hated my life, almost destroyed my relationship, was miserable every weekend, felt like I was on permanent PMS, became much angrier and grouchier than I already was, put on weight, and I'm quite certain that I was depressed at one time. I'm totally serious. I liked law school overall and loved my last two years but practising is a completely different story. I think the people that ultimately succeed have to be insane workaholics, insanely driven, have a high tolerance level for shit thrown at them, and have to thrive in a negative, MTF-esque environment where opponents and colleagues backstab you and judges scream at you sometimes for no good reason. I quit after a year because I had no intention or ambition of making partner and I hated it despite the good salary, and now I'm thinking of either working for an IO or NGO, or pursuing academia, or both.

Did George W Bush go to law school?

Edit: Hahaha your sig.

Hopefully!

But I don't think the US is ready for that yet, unfortunately.
