>>I only wish that I was an English Major, or the equivalent of one in any language.<<
Why are you not? If it is a matter of money, I assure you there are many programs that will pay your way. Why does English seem attractive as a major? I prefer engineering my self, although language is a means to communicate and possibly manipulate a wider audience, Engineering is the Discipline of effecting change in the physical world. Engineering is not without a price, if mathematics is not your strong suit, perhaps wordsmith is your calling. I do not place one above another, I am certain cases can be made for many discplines.
To avoid criticism, do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.
There is no conversation more boring than the one where everybody agrees.
-Michael de Montaigne
Ah, I'd love to wear a rainbow every day,
And tell the world that everything's OK,
But I'll try to carry off a little darkness on my back,
'Till things are brighter, I'm the Man In Black.
