MIS37 saidThe reason I ask I just have some concerns and some questions about the work in college and dealing with the stress of academics of getting there while coping with being gay. Moreover, how is it when you finally get to where you want to be? Thank you
Why are you coping with being gay?
While EE is a demanding programming, academically, it's like any other. You get out and you get a job, and either you like it, or not, and make choices as you go along.
Most things worth doing ARE hard. We walk into those challenges, walking into through, above, and beyond them. Life is like that.
Those who defer from challenges are the ones you see working in retail, or food service, etc. Good things are OFTEN hard.
There should no reason to "cope" with being gay. That's you being head fucked. Embrace who you are; get rid of the false belief systems about who you are (religion/cults/etc), and move forward. Like yourself, and stay focused on your mission.
EE is known for being especially grueling academically, but, you get it done, and move on.
