Im actually an IT myself and I would like to know if there anyone else here as well?
I'm glad that you asked. A long time ago, I pursued a major/degree in computer engineering at ODU at the beginning of the 1990s, but things didn't turn out so well. For one thing, I attended ODU for just less than 2 years, and also, since I was very young and naïve during those days, I was too busy opening myself up to a lot of things that I had never experienced back home given the fact that I was often sheltered as a child. Given the fact that I was so much into scifantasy robots such as TRANSFORMERS and TERMINATOR [I'm going to see T6 (2019) and MIDWAY (2019) this weekend!], I wanted to get involved in the real business of computing and AI very badly. Not only was I fascinated with the newest high technology of those times, but I also knew that there was (going to be) money in it also. (Of course, I had an idea even back then that I probably wouldn't mind having a female AI, especially since I was always a fat and ugly dork/geek/nerd whom no decent flesh-and-blood chick wanted to be seen around.) Sadly, as I transitioned from high school to college, I wasn't really prepared for the type of STEM courses that I had to take at ODU in order to complete my comp engi curriculum - and also - I let a whole train of distractions (such as that video arcade over at ODU's Webb Center and a nearby comic book shop) derail me from my main goal(s). I reluctantly switched from comp engi to business economics as a major to study - but I still got dogged. (Incidentally, that first ECON class that I took at ODU had one of the hottest blonde student chicks on the campus at that time!) As my grades continued to sink lower and lower, I took time off from school for a while and lived with my Grandparents up in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania USA for a while back in the early part of 1992 (I remember those chaotic Rodney King-LA riots that happened back in April of that year.) As an employee of the local zoo up there, I learned 'a little more about the World' on my days off. My fascination with dark social subcultures (such as goths, metalheads and punks) specifically began to grow - which was predated by some of my earlier experiences at ODU. While living up in Phillie, I got more into the Worlds of both underground/erotic/alternative/adult comics (as well as other porn media) and alternative radio (WKDU) and music (such as early EDM, industrial, heavy metal, punk, etc.). After taking all of this in, I began to look at the more mainstream cultures in a very different light, indeed. To be honest with you, I wasn't even feeling the Church Thing like I used to. (During that year, my Grandparents often took me to Church on Sundays if I was off from work.) Eventually, towards the end of 1992, I transferred over to VSU and eventually earned a degree in Business Management in May of 1995. After my college years, I had so many job highs and lows that to name them all would take several more book chapters to write - and not to mention that to this very day - I have still never found my flesh-and-blood DreamGirl, which is why nowadays - as I approach my fifties - I'm just going to acquire whatever money and STEM knowledge that I can acquire and just build the Fembot Of My Dreams and/or buy one (or some) of those sex dolls/mannequins that are on the market now. That's my story in a nutshell.
