How is everyone doing

296 posts in this topic

thefiestygoat has a good point. Put some time aside to find or get re-involved with a past hobby. It will occupy some time and you should be able to meet some other people with similiar interests.

I'm fine... just found a nice girlfried :)

Hockey season starts...

A lot of promising books waiting for a read...

On the other side, I like my job. Really. But... I want a change, soon! So poor management here... Everybody here dislikes the chiefs, who are not very competent. Bad decisions one after another, not a cool management and just... letting the things go that way, without any change. When they are here of course (and it's less and less often).

Tired of working for people who just don't show at work... but say you're not working enough :(

Thanks for the advice and input guys--as always I appreciate probably more than you know. Seriously I have found myself TALKING to myself around the house sometimes--like a crazy person. I'm even excited to see my parents when they come home from work...that is until they start trying to be helpful with job advice.

First step, to get yourself out of your rut, try to get on a different schedule: Get up at 730am, shower, dress good, it will make you feel better...eat good etc...get yourself in a positive frame of mind. If you cannot do that, how can you be completely confident and positive for an interview? So take care of #1 first and foremost...

As for finding a job, believe me, that 1st job out of college is not easy...heck, I got into the IT field, which I did NOT go to school for....advice: Think outside the box...and hey, if you have to work for a place like Starbucks for awhile, there are worse things, you would probably get benefits I imagine and you will have income coming in and that is a start.

Working at Starbucks I know won't be really bad. I am not looking down at that job by any means. And who knows it might be fun. I know I shouldn't care what other people think, but when I tell people (my parent's friends, other people who have recently graduated that have jobs) that I still don't have a job----it's almost embarrassing.

I don't understand why things all of a sudden went sour between my friend Stefanie and I. I expected her to give me a call after the incident with the trying to make me drink at that party. But after she got back from vacation she didn't call me---and she hasn't called me since. It's not like I didn't keep in touch with her during the years I was in school. We kept in touch through IM, email, and phone. I saw her when I was home. She even came up to visit. I didn't think there was any resentment there. It just really hurts my feelings because I thought we were better friends... but obviously she really just doesn't care that we're not speaking anymore? And for what? Is she really that pissed that I turned down her $20 and wouldn't get drunk that night?

I am pretty optimistic in the fact that I will stay in touch with my college friends. There are a lot of us in our little group---and there are definitely little sub-groups that exist, but I think we will all stay in contact even if it's just through facebook messages and email. It's hard to get ALL of us together, but I think we will at least once a year. It's a unique bond I have with some people at school and I miss all of them very much. But who knows? I thought Stef and I had a pretty solid friendship.

I hate hate hate following up on resumes. People either say to you, "We said no phone calls. Thanks." or they say, "We are in the process of reviewing all resumes we will contact you if we are interested. Thanks." Blah blah blah. It's so awkward, but you are right... I could call a person who actually finds it impressive that I thought to follow up. Thanks...

I kinda know how you feel LA....the prospect of needing to get a real job scares me. I have no idea what I want to do once I am done with my PhD, and just recently I have been reconsidering why I am even doing this now, but what would I rather be doing. I all seriousness I have absolutely no clue. I never wanted to be the kind of person that had no direction in life, but I find myself here now. I have been completely disillusioned numerous conferences.....I do not want to become one of those people, all they talk about is work...all the time. Also I am not one of those people that is completely driven...I am lazy, I lack motivation unless pressed by a firm deadline. So how would I ever become a professor, or lead a research group if I have no one towering over me and demanding my work.

Eh...I just feel in limbo. And it sucks. Apparently I also now have anxiety (I am finding out pretty much everyone else also does), so that really ain't helping. I have always been a healthy, non-sick person, so I feel very much out of my comfort zone.

Anyway, that is me whining.

brodeurrocks you have a very unique view of life, and death, something we could possibly all benefit from at times. We have a lot to be greatful for, we have so much and yet we focus on the petty details that are wrong with our lives.

LA sounds like I imagine Niedermayer fears he'll be if he retires for real and true :rofl::unsure: yeah... i crack myself up.

i will be saying safty prayers for moustic...I hear you so much! I see planes in teh air and still think of them as big torpedos or something. My husband is fine with flying because he wants to go places. I - while I know chances of death are even higher, prefer driving long distances. Of course it will be pretty hard getting to Paris by automobile.

Hard, but not impossible. If anyone can do it, it's you PK.

You just need a really fast car with a good ramp or some swimmies on it.

Now that's just silly.

I think it woudl be good to jsut have a thread just to reflect on life.

Ill start it off. Ive been stressing over class, i just finished a 8 page ap-physics report on how a humidified baseball absorbs the shock and dosent go as far when hit compared to a normal regulation one. Ive been typing that up and listening to Wilco's, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, to relax out a bit.

So how is everyone else doing?

I'm back from High school...Had a not so bad morning(I had..Physical Sciences, French, Physical Education,Option Physical Education)

I did..13.79 on the 100meters , and the last period with the Option P.E we played touch Football, in which we won 14-0!

Hey ThreeStars....yeah working in a hospital has a way of putting things into perspective in a hurry. Many years ago on my first day on the job I encountered a gent about 40 years of age who was having trouble finding the ER. I escorted him there and witnessed him hit the floor dead! Two seconds earlier, we were discussing the weather! :o After that, I certainly began to look at life (and death, I suppose) in a different light. I have also learned not to take thngs too serious as life truly is "too short".

So when things get tough - don't sweat the petty things (or pet sweaty things) - just think of the things we should be grateful for and appreciate them!

I'm doing really good right now. I just found out that I can test out of one of my classes for credit. I was previously worried that I would be able to test out, but have to replace the credits by taking a higher level class or by using one of my free credits that I want to save. Now I can take the test, get the 3 credits, and replace the class. I am going to wait on taking the test, because if I take it during this semester, I can't replace the class right now. I want to make sure I can keep taking 19 credits this semester so I can graduate on time.

I will probably take the test over the winter semester when I won't have to worry about a credit limit. Then if it all goes to plan, I can take another 18 or 19 in the spring, then I will only need one or two classes in the first summer semester (depending if I take another 3 credit class in the winter semester or not), and then I will have my associates which will make it easier to transfer back to a 4 year (Seton Hall) and still be able to graduate on time in 2010.

Its nice to see it all going to plan, considering that I changed my major when transferring from my original school and lost some credit as a result. I know no one really cares, but I just had to get this out because I am feeling pretty damn good right now. B )

Ahhh Goat, same goes for me.

Everything is good for me.

The teachers that I have in High school seems all "okay" except my English teacher... His name is Benoit Guay, and he's really gay(Though that's not the reason why I don't like him..I just think its Ironic.) He always whine on the fact that most of us don't really watch the news or either, we don't write or listen enough English, and we're in a program which your suppose to be on the same level as the Cejep(18-19years old guys)And last class he was like " WHAT? YOU PEOPLE DOESN'T REMEMBER HOW MANY PEOPLE DIED ON THE TITANIC?"I can't believe this".

Other than that, my schedule is really nice. I have like 6 Physical Education courses on a cycle of 9day courses, and I'm with all my friends in most of my courses.And so far, I have no trouble with my maths 436(That's strong Maths, there's 416,426 and 436. and last year I had some trouble with my Math 352(Strong Maths again) Because I had a bitch who didn't know a damn hell what she was doing,)

MEHHH, I remember back, 2-3months ago..I was saying: "High school sucks"...I guess I was wrong :P

I'm hurting right now. I have this really bad pain on the inside of my elbow that extends down into my pinky finger and a little bit of my ring finger. I've always had it on and off for nearly 10 years now, but I never paid much attention to it because it only would happen once a month at most. Now, it's been going on for a few days straight and I'm having trouble gripping things...in my math class yesterday, I dropped my pencil twice because I couldn't even hold onto it. I did a little research and talked with a friend of mine who is an athletic trainer and she said it most definitely sounded like an ulnar nerve problem and to go to a doc right away because it's been going on for so many years.

I called and made an appointment with the orthopedist, hopefully it's just someone relatively minor...this is the last thing I need right now, especially since this is my dominant arm/hand.

:saddevil:
