Hrmm, my font
s are all screwed up... must be Internet Explorer
here at work.
I haven't been active in E2
for a fair while, although I come back to it occasionally... I started to realise I was re-reading nodes I'd read before, and not enough nodes that were funny
ing to me were being written, so I drifted off, heh... (not to put down all the brilliant
write-ups that are being written everyday, it just takes a lot to hold my attention for long)
But today I felt the need to vent
a bit, and this is really the only place I can do it in any half way coherent
manner... even talking to Anna
eventually turns into rambling, because I can't think fast enough for what my mouth wants to say.
So, I've nearly finished my first semester of my final year at University
. Pretty soon I'll be fully qualified to be a Software Engineer
. Whatever the hell that means. The truth is, I almost feel like this year is a waste of time
, as I could be working full time here at work if I wanted, which I will be doing next year. And after that, I'm fairly certain I'll be able to get other jobs based on this one as a reference
, if I chose to leave.
But at other times, I'm glad for the break from full time work, no matter how difficult uni is getting... I don't know, I switch back and forth between the two opinion
s at fairly regular interval
s. I know I won't leave uni, because without the certificate
at the end it'll count for nothing, and I probably won't start studying part time either, because it'd take too much effort to get it organised; plus it's just easier to get it over and done with this year, and never have to worry about it again. (Apart from my debt to the government
, but luckily that's not too much anyway)
My life at the moment is quite good though, really. I love Anna
more and more each day. We're planning for the future
, designing our future house
, planning the pet
s we're going to have, all the cool technology
our house is going to have, and subtly ignoring the fact that it's going to cost a hell
of a lot to build. That bit's for later.
The only problem is, it's so far into the future
, we're just torturing ourselves. We don't really know what our situation will be by the time we've saved enough to build it; we don't even know how long it's going to take to save that much. It's fun, though, to think about. And hopefully we'll at least be able to move out into a unit in the next couple of years.
Work is giving me the shit
s lately though... I really
with I was working with people I got along with better, people who I could relate to better. As it is, I end up having to go to lunch with someone who just ends up telling me about his drunken sexual exploits
he had over the weekend
. Thank god I'm only here part time.
It'd just be nice to actually be able to talk to somebody about the things that interest me for once... movies
, whatever... someone who was in a similar situation to me, and who had similar goals...
Grr, and now he's playing Beastie Boys
so loud, it drowns out my music...
