平均分: 10.00 | 評分人數: 1

奇怪,怎麼這所大學內每個人都只懂用「就業前景」來衡量一個學科的價值?究竟有沒有人是因為興趣和了解所讀學科的意義而選擇自己的主修?大學生嘛,我想還是應該發發夢好。沒有夢想的人生,太沉悶了。

暫時只找到一個志同道合的朋友。德同學,一起以「攻殼」為目標而努力吧!

很懷念那時在中大討論哲學的日子。沒有任何憂慮,沒有任何功利的目的,不是為了糊口,也不是為了什麼前途,只是單純的覺得有趣,所以才討論。所謂的「學習」,應該是這樣的一回事。只是純粹為知識而學習,純粹為了解到新事物而欣喜。純粹為了自己能一步步地掌握身邊的世界而感到興奮。不問得失,不問成敗,也不計較論文寫成怎樣。在過程中已經得到了所有應得的好處。

真想身邊的同學們能對自己多一點信心,對自己讀的科目有點歸屬感。果然第一志願和第二志願是很不同呢,無奈地入了沒有興趣的科目,實在會令人提不起勁吧。但如果每天都擔心自己前途的話,是沒有可能創造出理想的未來的吧。

希望能找到更多志同道合的朋友。

Cris,
Thank you very much for your advice. My thought maybe still very immature. I will ponder upon your words.

Teris,

You know what Alex and I are doing. We are doing what we're doing, of course because we also have this same dream. Let me remind you, you don't need anyone to approve/judge your dream (though you may need to ask for your family's opinion sometime). At the same time, you shouldn't judge what other people are doing. They trade their dreams for money or comfortable lives, they have their reasons. Making decisions for lives and working very hard for money ain't anything easy at all. They deserve your respect, only if then they respect your dream as well. We are not trying to tell you not dreaming, but we just want to tell you you can't separate reality with dream. You can say you don't need to make big money. But you shouldn't sound too extreme to say you don't need a shelter.

Unrealistic doesn't help you make your dream come true. The best is finding a way to work out our dreams and have a comfortable life. And sometime, we need to admit money assisting us toward our dreams. Money may not be your driving force, but this is the driving force for many many things which can lead you to your dream.

Always remember this, you're not living by yourself in this world. Research or academia is a very diversified community, you need to be able to work with people with different belief. As Alex said, money is a BIGGGGG concern for research.

I feel very very sorry if I have been offensive. However, since the time I decide to quit my study in CUHK, I have been facing so much pressure from others. It is never easy for me to quit CU and apply for Poly, since I love the campus and my live in CUHK so much, and no one like uncertainty. And I have given up so many thing to pursue the so called "dream", including various kinds of scholarship in CU and the HKU MedE degree. I feel really disappointed when I find out that no one really share the same kind of dream, or even interest, with me. Everyone seems to just come in to get a degree and a job. I of course have no authority on what others believe, but live is not easy when you are told, persuaded, warned again and again by yr2, yr3, and graduates from this programme that studying BME seems to be nothing but the total waste of your time.

I know BME is not Medicine, it won't guarantee you $30k per month upon graduate. Maybe it sucks, maybe it ALL sucks. But so what? It is too late now. I am not going to turn back and run away. I hope for no encouragement. But in this lonely island of materialism, please save some room for my crazy and meaningless dream.

I would like to apologize sincerely again if I have been offensive

Teris,

It is interesting to see your discussion here with Cris. I can say that Cris and I feel happy to see someone has dream in BME field. That's why we would like to talk and discuss with you.

I don't want to give any further comment on dream/ human/pig la. I just want to point out that Cris did a lot for her study in oversea. From the undergradate, we have to work very hard (I am sure the syllabus for us is difficult enough) for good results. Then, we have to take part in many activities and we did promotion in this field also. For Cris, she has many considerations and has to pay off for her study. I did appreciate her hardworking for her "dream" to study BME in US.

I think we just try to let you think think how to take a balance between dream (or your mission/ purpose/ aim in your life...) and your resource (money, interpersonal network, and career...)

Our professors have many great researches in this field, they also work very hard to seek for the fundings...no funding, no research.

I wish you understand what I want to say la, work hard!

Sorry, a happy pig is a bit offensive. I think some people can just go for money and betray their dream. But I'm only saying a balance. So when you decide on your career or study, try to find a balance between both. This is not an one man island, if you think your workers are happy pig, then you can cooperate with them.

made some mistake at some point.

If you think I discuss on this issue just to disagree with you, then I would stop. I spend my time only as I care.

People have different belief in this world, just like my boss and I do. I have no intention to change your belief, I spent my time in replying and sharing my belief cuz I think that's big. Some people can reject Fields Medal and get fired, lives with his Mom on her Mon's pension, nothing I can do with it. And as long as they are happy, I don't think there is anything wrong (assuming those people not getting social money).

Though I said so, I know for your situation, as long as you truly work hard for your dream, you can be among the top. In that case, surely can earn enough for whatever lifestyle you want or don't want.

嘉:
唉........你說的也很有道理。也怪不得學生們........

本do:
但到底人工作賺錢是為了什麼呢?人之所以需要金錢,不正是為了自己的快樂嗎?但現在有很多人卻為了金錢把人生的快樂都丟棄了,成為金錢的奴隸。這又有什麼意思呢?

sidekick:
多謝讚賞!!但其實還有很多方面需要改善啦。例如說如果用IE 看的話,會有點少問題....

Cris:
Sorry, but I disagree with you. What you think is common among HK students, or even HK people. What they what for their life is just a job to feed them well. And they think that having a good job and a large house will guarantee them a happy life. Therefore, forgive me to be rude, what they what is not to become a happy human, but just a happy pig: have meal, have sleep and that's all for today. However, I don't think that money is all that important in life. A happy and meaningful life doesn't need a apartment, nor good income. The most crucial point of a happy life lies within your heart: whether you love what you are, and whether you think what you are doing is important and meaningful. Evaluate everything according to its economical values maybe give you more money. it won't give you happiness. And a live just for money but not dream will only create mediocrity, Dream big and achieve big. That's always the rule of life. I think what PolyU students differ from other university is that they receive too little humanistic education.

Why every students here go to university just to get a job? Do they know the meaning of "university"? An university is not IVE!
