    Hehehe... I went the opposite direction I just finished my phd in the same subject... was a graphic designer ...still freelance every now and then when I can find the time. My advice stick with it... besides if you do indeed go into graphic design and actually enjoy it the cs skills will certainly be handy. Just be very certain to ask yourself why you want to leave that field or any field... but since the fields are so closely related? (I actually have a very close friend and his wife I attended university with and he lives there in Brooklyn anyway, he despised graphic design and now he's a rather well known graphic designer there in NYC ). I myself have a tendency to not go into the fields of my degrees! What's a degree? :laugh2:

    I went into school sure I could complete a bio and a Music degree simultaneously... family finances (have a younger bro) only allowed me 4 years in school so I dropped the bio degree plans...

    Answer: Music Ed.... 15 years ago ;)

    Hah!!! Many of my bestest friends in the world have been mechanical engineers.....

    Please say you have common sense and a visual mind.... Always bugged me that most of those mechanical engineers needed me to load the car for them for everything to fit.......

    i guess that's why i picked CS instead of art/graphic at the beginning, but i didnt know its this hard so this much bs... all the big-O(log n) i dont CARE how fast a program run... i dont care what kind of chips they use, cos my computer is running well...
    yet i guess you and everyone else is right, i should stay... but it's really discourging... i have absolutely no motivation... and i hate that more than i hate CS... =T
    thanks anyway

    How many years do you have in it fei? 'Cause finishing a degree is one thing... but working in a job you hate for your lifetime is considerably less-than-cool. Its well worth shifting gears and retrenching while you're young to set yourself up for a happy existence. If not for yourself think of your future spouse/children/people in your life. If work is nothing more than the daily grind YOU won't be the best person you can be and they will bear the brunt of it, unfortunate as it may seem.

    Again... how many years do you have in.... if its 2 I say change now... no matter what financial juggling you need do to further your education. If this is the end of the third year consider finishing but think in terms of a job that will allow you to further your education IMMEDIATELY to get into something you want!

    Sure, I've got common sense(yeah, yeah, you know. That's what we all say, right?)

    I didn't get you on the loading the car part.(maybe I'm dumb, maybe)
    Please explain again.
