I am strongly considering going back to University to study Seismology. I wasn't keen on the idea for studying as most of the things I wanted to be I could work my way up, but Seismology is a science and requires studies.

The reason I'm having doubts is because I have a very low attention span and thats why I didn't complete college the last time.

This is earth-shattering news, Brian.

Good luck.

I am not sure if that was an intended pun, but to most of my family it was indeed 'earth-shattering' xD

With me, it almost certainly always is xD 

I'm sure if you do succeed, you'll be making waves in your field in no time.

Why Seismology?

Why Seismology?

Seismology was my only option regarding a science when I was told to pick a career back in high school. Since I was about 10 or 11 I've loved researching what causes earthquakes and tsunamis. I remember I spent hours looking at what happened in Japan back in 2011. I'm not too bothered at sciences but Seismology is one that definitely has interested me for a long time.

What did you study before?

Be ready for a lot of maths, programming and physics if you decide to do it. That's quite a niche field, so you'd likely need a Master's degree to land a job in the industry.

Sports Journalism and 3D Animation.

Sports Journalism I had some focus in, but 3D animation I dozed off completely. That's partially why I'm dubious, so I plan to work on my attention span in some way before applying to anything.

And yeah I'm aware, that's why I plan to study for it, because I definitely need a masters degree to get a job there.

That news has really shook me @Mpache. If you don't study hard you'll find the ground start to shake underneath you and swallow you whole. 

Good luck though, a meteoric rise would be amazing.

Not sure if you did it on purpose, but were the puns intended mate?

Stay safe @Devil-Dick Willie. Heard about the floods. Been in one myself in Lima back in 2017. Not a fun time to live through.

I live in Wollongong, we're fine. I've lived through them before too, back in 99 there was some nasty ones on my street. 

Some people I know on social media are marking themselves "safe" when I know they live in apartment blocks or on hills xD Whoopers

Yeah I was far from the flood too but I still felt the affects of it with them shutting off water and power. I've seen some of the images and the scenes are nasty. Not getting too much coverage either, a Youtuber I watch had to remind us.

I live on a second story apartment (above a dentist) 
I literally walked to the gym and shops this morning. We've had no power outage. The only negative has been that over the weekend when the rain was heaviest I ate like shit because I just ubered my food instead of cooking, which is only because I ride a motorbike.

I remember the floods in Tilbury, Essex in 1953, I was 4 years old then but I can remember me, my mother, brother & sisters were all upstairs watching my old man on a door paddling around downstairs as the water was 6 foot deep, I looked out of our bedroom window and some guy was in a dustbin paddling along the flooded street, we all then were carried into a boat when the water receded a bit and evacuated to Chadwell which was on higher ground and everyone was allocated in a big hall.

@Bluewolf always had some really good stories of the 1953 floods, as he was in his 40's at the time he was part of the successful search and rescue project that is fondly talked about today.

Yesterday I woke up, opened my window, and there was a single yellow balloon floating next to a storm drain opening in the gutter. Spooky

Today, after my housemate left for work, he came back in about 45 minutes later, he said hi to me, I said hi to him, he walked past the lounge room and into his room. After finishing my assessment I walked over to ask why he'd come back from work and he wasn't there. I messaged him and he was at work, he had never come home! WTF

I just had a shower and I got scalded because the cold water went off. I assumed my housemate had returned and was using the kitchen cold water. Odd that's he'd be home 9pm. NOPE HES NOT HERE MY APPARTMENT IS HAUNTED GOD DAMN!! No I'm not having plumbing issues either and that shit never happens.

It all sounds like some evil plan your housemate came up with in order to make you doubt your sanity.
