retirement consulting is really a no go for me. i really thought i'd like it, and i really wanted to like it. but it's just too much government regulations, too many acrynoms, too much data entry, and too much reviewing before sending stuff to clients. the underlying problem, imo, is that there're too much details to learn and remember. and i just... don't care about that. what i really want to do is work that requires thinking: applying some sort of theory to solving interesting problems - doesn't even have to be complicated (heck, time series forecasting really isn't THAT complicated).
what i should really do now is focus on studying, do my work well but don't spend too much time worrying about it, and just learn to juggle the time... screw it if they hate me. and if i appear disinterested... well, it's because i am.
