>>7673578 no you fucking idiot he's talking about law school
where the fuck did you read the words "Master's* in Law", hm?
Maybe you should just go ahead and start filling out that Starbucks application, because you clearly haven't learned how to fucking read during the three pathetic years you've spent at school; you were probably too busy smoking dope and jerking off in your dorm that you didn't do any fucking work, and now you come and post on 4chan with the hope that there is some quick-fix hooplah that you can use to turn your life around.
Well, there isn't. But killing yourself won't get you what you really want, it will just end you. No, you don't want to die, you just don't want to have any real responsibilities or obligations.
Too bad! You wasted your time, and now you're going to pay for your laziness with a life of monotonous brain-numbing wagecuck shift work.
I'm in a similar situation as OP. I somehow managed to get into a decent university and despite everyone trying to convince me I wasted the opportunity to get a degree in something pre-med related, I pursued English, I'm interested in being a professor. I'm making good grades and I'm considering staying in school until I can get my doctorate. How difficult will it be for me tofind a job as a professor at a university?? I don't want to teach at some community college.
>>7673621 one of my professors estimated that the number of applications per opening is about 200/1 for tenure positions. adjuncts and visiting are probably better, but for shit pay and no security. good luck with that, you'll only make it if you're already well-known or in with the right people
I used to be a junior in an English program in a university considered to be the best by some for humanities. Well, guess where I am now? Studying Java and Precalculus in community college. I figured most of the best PhD programs have 200-400 people applying for 5-10 spots. I also figured if I ever write a decent novel, there's a good chance it won't be enough for me to live on. I doubt you are any different if you spend most of your time funposting on here... friendo.
The real awfulness (not horror) of this Wes Anderson DVD-cover image is that its author wishes to white-privelege-wash away the unpleasant idea that white men have feelings and think thoughts. Literal reverse othering, though I do cringe at the idea of "accepting" the frame, speaking the language. To indict "misguided sexual rage" as some sort of manageable secondary emotion, rather than a Primary UberUrge, is about as meaningful as blaming lions for doing what they do, as the Marquis correctly pointed out. This is the disingenuousness and peculiar pathology of white leftism which still has not rejected its browner and actual rapist infection in literal, actual rape culture.
Your school should also have a career center that can hook you up with internships and prospective employers. The English department might be able to help you as well. Finally most schools have an alumni organization that can help as well.
Or you can do what I am doing, and go for a masters degree. Most English masters programs only take a couple of years if you go full time, and depending on where you go, it may be much cheaper than your undergraduate degree. I went to a state school for my BA and had to take out loans. With my MA I am able to pay as I go.
Work in a publishing house. Be a copy editor. Get into business. English BA is incredibly versatile. It's built on the premise of communicating. You'd be surprised how many people can't write a simple fucking sentence. The jobs are out there, and they take finding, but they exist. Go see your school's career counselor, get a LinkedIn, find out what some of your school's English alumni have done and contact them seeing if their jobs have available positions.
