decision-making is not in my nature.

In three days, I'll have to decide on which lab I'm going to pursue my final year in. Emphasizing on which course of chemical engineering I'm going to specify into, which means which field of engineering I'm (most likely) going to work in.

I have absolutely no idea.

This is truly a middle age crisis, and I'm not even 25 yet.
Damnit.

I don't want to blindly choose the lab everyone goes; or the lab that has the most popularity; or the lab that has the cute senpais; or the lab that has the kindest sensei. Because I know sooner or later I'm going to regret that.
But I don't know which one I'm supposed to set my target to. Heck, I don't even know which subject I'm good in.
How did these people do this??!! Pfft.

At the moment I do have certain labs I've set my eyes on, but I don't really know the reason. It can be because the senseis are kind or it's the one everyone's not going to go so it has the less competition..I don't know.

I have three days to figure this out..THREE days and I'm going to decide on something that'll change my whole final year

If you happen to have any opinion on what I should major in, kindly leave an email :) Or if you're heading for the same lab/course..it'd be nice if you can tell me what it's about, etc. Friends or not, I really need a third party's opinion.. Thanks :)

My current choices : 

1) 微粒子工学研究室 - Particle Technology Laboratory (I like particles, I like atomic force microscope, I know a bit about nuclear..and the senseis are nice. Oh the senpais are the kindest too)
2) グリーンプロセス工学研究室 - Environmental Engineering Laboratory (I like nature. The sensei is my tutor from the first year, but I don't really know much about the lab..)
3) 化工熱力学研究室 - Thermodynamics for Chemical Engineering Laboratory (I like the subject, but not really friendly with the senseis..scared of them, in fact. But love the subject -_- )



You know, being an engineer is not that easy.

So while I was looking for some background of my course, you know, something to back me up on the decision-making since I'm not really good at it; I googled something about engineer on the net, and look what I found..not the most romantic thing ever but who cares :)

10 Good Reasons for You to Date and Marry an Engineer

 
1. The world does not revolve around us. We choose the coordinate system.
2. No "couple" could enjoy a better "moment."
3. We know how to handle stress and strain in a relationship.
4. We have significant figures.
5. EK 301: The motion of rigid bodies.
6. Projectile motion: Need we say more?
7. Engineers do it to specifications.
8. According to Newton, if two bodies interact, the forces are equal and opposite.
9. We know it's not the length of the vector that counts, but how you apply the force.
10. We know the right hand rule. 


Engineering Pick-Up Lines 


1. I won't stop bugging you until I get the address of your home page.
2. You fascinate me more than the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus.
3. Since distance equals velocity times time, let's let velocity and time approach infinity, because I want to go all the way with you.
4. My love for you is like a concave up function because it is always increasing.
5. Let's convert our potential energy to kinetic energy.
6. Wanna come back to my room?... and see my 300mHz Pentium II?
7. How about me and you go back to my place and form a covalent bond?
8. You and I would add up better than a Riemann sum.
9. You're sweeter than fructose.
10. We're as compatible as two similar Power Macintoshes.
11. Why don't we measure the coefficient of static friction between me and you?
12. Wanna see the programs in my HP?
13. Your body has the nicest arc length I've ever seen.
14. You're hotter than a bunsen burner set to full power!
15. I'd like to browse through your clothes like I browse through Netscape.
16. Hey baby, let's make a stress-strain curve together.


And last but not least, I'll leave you with this engineering's quote :)
