tfw I'm probably bad at everything STEM-related

What the fuck am I supposed to do when I go to college? I know I'm a dumb-fuck but I don't want to be a poor-fuck.

You're not dumb. You're a lazy fuck who doesn't want to put in the work to understand something.

Most investment banks offer a $75k starting salary with a $15k to $20k signing bonus and a $20k to $40k end of year performance bonus depending on how well you do. Can CS really compete? Not being a dickhead, just curious.

CS has an infinitely better work life balance

The career progression is not as high though, admittedly.

Pretty sure I'm dumb or at least have some learning disability. Headaches are frequent when I do math and sometimes I feel head fog throughout the day.

Because I make 200k a year and don't want to leave where I'm at :/

Coz I graduated from a STEM subject and I now do a job I love.
Certainly not as much money or even job security but I fucking love my work and I enjoy going in each morning.

So thats better than finance.

Can CS really compete?

Top companies in the Bay Area pay $100k starting, with ~$200k in stock options that vest over 4 years. Work/life balance is somewhat to a shit-ton better.

Sounds like you're trying to learn it in a day, resulting in a burnout. Make sure to take breaks and eat, then come back and continue learning. Don't cram everything under an hour.

Thanks, user, I'll keep trying and all, but most motivation I have at the beginning of every year is always burned at the end of the first semester, regardless of whether or not my grades were good.

Invesment banking you will work 70-90 hours per week.

In tech, you will work 40-50 hours per week.

Because I work in the oil fields. I'm 22 years old, have a 65k CAD portifolio and am tracking to make 120k this year.

By the time I'm 35 I should be well off to live off dividend and growth

fuckers who say they are bad at math are disgusting, math is literally just a series of processes, zero reasoning or logic, this is why computers do math and not philosophy

if you are bad at math, you are an idiot

math is literally just a series of processes, zero reasoning or logic.

You're talking shit about how people who are bad at math are idiots, however, you state that mathematics is just a series of processes and contains no logic which is not true at all outside the realm of elementary algebra.

I don't have the brains for mathematics, although I am pretty analytic and adept, and I do believe that I have a strong sense for business/marketing.

I'm going for a career in law enforcement. I want to be a police detective, then, after leaving the force, I want to go into politics and hold elective office.

Because I rolled with an art degree(which included business/accounting/marketing courses) with a specialization toward digital art and animation/3d modeling.

Now toppled with being self taught in programming and music production I can make app games and stuff.
