Distractions

1) On yet another re-write of my resume (since the current version hasn't seemed to do the trick) I was side-tracked for longer than I would have guess over the proper spelling of "Bachelors of Science in Physics". Whether the proper term has an s, an apostrophe s, no s; should be spelled out, should NOT be spelled out, etc. seems to depend more on the writer than any firm rule. Which seems insane for a document where any tiny typo is considered a hanging offense.

2) I catch up on Fred Pohl's blog The Way the Future Blogs and discover that he is tangentially under attack from a Kornbluth biographer with a chip on his shoulder. SO tempting to go haring off through the net to get other insights on this.

3) My marvelous boss gifted me with a subscription to Crunchyroll, and now I just want to sit and watch anime all day.

4) I have a couple of thousand books that I've realized I don't need to keep, so I've been listing some on eBay (using their fabulous No Listing Fee sale) and schlepping loads down to Half Price Books, and I need to do more of both of those.

5) My endemic optimism and conviction that "SOMETHING will work out" is likely as bad for me as my friend's recurring depression, in that I need to face up to reality, and the fact that things are not, in fact, working out, and it is time to take desperate measures. Like talking to people about it. Or actually *gasp!* asking for help. And I'd better post this before I delete this line once again.

Neither. The degree you were granted is "Bachelor of Science".

What would constitute "help?"

Not so much a hanging offense as likely to not trip the grep script that gets you in the front door.

How about BSc?

This is how I do it. I followed the "student-planned curriculum" so I leave the details off.

Also, I'm with Moshe: what help can we give you? Don't think we are mind-readers, just write it down. If you need money, say so. If you need something else (encouragement, job leads, etc.) say so. You are loved & appreciated by many many people... some of whom are in the same boat as you. Hang in there.

University of Illinois, Bachelor of Science: Physics

That's how I would do it, anyway. At this point, I would do my level best to leave out any reference to the graduation year.

Crunchyroll makes me wonder why they can't have as nice an interface as FUNimation, so I don't have to watch my Bleach (after waiting a week) on a tiny, glare-filled screen.

That being said, that's a nice present!

Oh, hey, I bid on some books....

(I think I have a parallel to #5.)
