Ha, not sure if that was aimed at me but I was joking, though in the past 2-3 years my Korean friends have definitely noticed a change/way more attraction from all races.
Nah. That was aimed at incels not you, lol.

I honestly wouldn't be surprised if they think Koreans make for better Asian Chads because of how crazy they all are.

Well, at school today an older [white] student told my pre-K [Asian] child that they have "ugly eyes".

No matter how progressive your school or city is, you're gonna encounter bigots.

I stumbled upon this guy's video essay channel on Asian films and it's pretty good. Two I want to highlight are criticisms on modern Chinese films that I've had for awhile.



I remember watching Ip Man thinking ...yeah the action is cool but the propaganda was just way too eye rolling



On Chinese blockbusters...

If you're mentally mature enough to go directly to postgraduate study, I think it makes sense to do so.

I say that from the perspective of someone who went directly to postgraduate study without having the necessary maturity to explore and engage in research. (I did get my Master's, but it was just a piece of paper.)

I watched Always Be My Maybe last night. I liked it.
Watched it two nights ago.

I liked parts of ABMM (the bits with the guest star, Mr. Kim, and when Ali talked smack), but found it pretty flat otherwise. The spouse seemed to enjoy it more than I did.

I vastly preferred CRA, although I'm sure the latter had a budget many times that of the former. In terms of plot, they're both pretty standard rom-coms in terms. CRA had more engaging side characters and great presentation/style. I like Ali Wong's standup, but she didn't sell her role here at all, let alone as well as Constance Wu did in CRA.

Master's programs are paid for by the student, so it depends on the program. Usually professional degrees like an MBA or JD can be ~200k. Others like engineering or accounting tend to be less, but still some multiple more than undergraduate studies. Generally takes 2-3 years.

PhD/doctoral programs tend to be paid for by the school, with a small stipend paid as you're generally required to do TA/research work in addition to your own research. Generally 5-7 years, but can definitely drag on longer.

Medical programs are their own thing.

My accounting master program was 30k for two years, but I went to a local state uni. Granted, I got super lucky because it was close to my house and ranked number one in county, so it was easy to make the decision to go there since B4 recruited heavily from us.

So, if you want to go the cheap state uni way and still be "successful" (read: middle class), pick a school with a good rep in your field. Who do the top firms/companies of your field recruit out of? Go to that school.

My law school debt was 6 figures.
Oh my god, I'm so sorry.

I think Law School and Med school (really most professional schools) are gonna run you about 6 figures, depending on the earning potential of that particular field after graduation. I actually read an interesting article about how B. Schools are having a harder time attracting people as it isn't viewed as an easy ticket into a high paying finance or upper management gig anymore.

Yeah medical school debt in the US can easily go into six figures. Private schools are something like 60-80k/year * 4 years; in-state schools are like 1/2-2/3 that. Also, a lot of people have debt carrying over from undergrad (or weren't able to completely pay off that debt if they took gap years).

Granted, once you're in, you're almost certainly going to make 6 figures when you finish residency.

What do you mean by mental maturity? Because if we're talking good time management that ain't me.
What type of program are you thinking of doing?
Either a masters in marketing, management, or media studies - done in 1 and a half years.

Working really puts things into perspective. At least it did for me. I think that's what emag meant...

I was a terrible undergrad student but working really helped put my ass in place (thought I'm still prone to laziness)

I'm in an odd spot where I'm getting great grades, building good rapports with lecturers, and feeling like I'm actually picking up stuff that's worthwhile but feeling aimless, and precarious mental wellbeing wise. I do wanna keep learning but my uni culture, or lack thereof, is kinda alienating.

I mean sounds like you're bored with school or burned out....If you could line up a one year job while you're applying.. that might be good for you.
