Last night the kid in our household started playing some game involving loud screeches at 10pm. Smiley: mad Eventually I told him to play a game that involved being quiet.

I dunno why a 4 year old needs to be up that late every night, anyway.

Also, amount of Smiley: mads is proportional to the amount of time I work, or something.

Doing math past midnight is a bad idea.

It was also made complicated by the fact that I had to do it all in CAS for Microsoft Word, but I'm using OpenOffice, and I'm not going to download and install Word just for this one assignment (next month it's Excel), so I got the stand-alone version of Microsoft Mathematics. Problem was, the guide for the assignment did not work at all with the stand-alone version, so I had to figure it out on my own.

Right? Like, I'm barely able to absorb this math stuff without my head exploding all over the place, and then I have to figure out how a program works as well?

It's pretty neat, though, now that I've got a basic understanding of it.

Have you checked out LibreOffice? I have no clue if that functionality, specifically, is similar, but in general I've been quite pleased with it and how user-friendly it is.

Probably. Though not required in the least. I'm having a blast just playing without paying (the real money shop is open).

It'll launch f2p and from what I can tell, the pace of rewards you earn from playing is enough to do well.

Top notch comedy from Russia, they are accusing the Netherlands of violating human rights because a Russian diplomat was arrested in his home and held for a few hours because he was/is suspected of abusing his children (as in beating them, not sexual abuse). Even Putin commented on the occasion.

Russian diplomats are rather infamous for abusing their diplomatic immunity. There was an article recently that diplomatic immunity costs the Dutch government some 2-300,000 euros each year in fines, the vast majority of that from Russian and Chinese diplomats.

Also, I accidentally got enrolled as a PhD student somewhere and they can't change it now, apparently. Smiley: lol

cynyck, was hoping someone would catch the reference. Smiley: grin

Kali, I'm not sure LaTeX would be an improvement. The interface/input method seems very different from most other CAS programs I've checked out. The way you have to write fractions into it just seems like a huge waste of time, and so many braces... probably the most annoying symbols to write on a Danish keyboard (Alt Gr + 7 and 0). You have to move your right hand away from the RShift position, which can **** over your "touch typing".

Last time around, I regretted not applying to better universities so much.

I think this time I'm kind of at the point where I've taken a course there (at the same department), know the odds of getting in (about 30%, not too bad) and it's genuinely my third choice (or possibly fourth, lol) so I'm not that bothered about whether I do get in. I think revising for the interview will be useful for just gaining all that knowledge. And I think getting in would be kind of cool, but I am stressing a lot more about Cambridge where I can't even send in my application yet because I've trouble contacting the right people to get my research proposal done. Smiley: mad

Isn't Elinda from TN? Dunno where, though.

[EDIT]

How unhappy I am with my job is starting to get problematic... Just being here is enough to spike my anxiety levels up towards breaking point, and it's basically an eight-hour game of balancing internal calming exercises with getting **** done...

An eight-hour game with 1.5-2 hours of driving on either end. This morning was particularly awful, because it was pouring the entire way. Nothing like spending 2 hours fearing for your life before 8 hours of significant stress.

TL;DR: I'd be beyond useless in a combat situation.

I REALLY wasn't happy this morning.

I started getting here half an hour early, so I could have some time alone before having to deal with anything. Not that I mind the other people who come in at 8 (they're who I'm closest to), it's just nice to have time alone to destress after the drive.

Side note: I just had to call someone my boss fired before I came here. Because she was ignoring my boss' emails. That was not enjoyable.

Or useful, as it (unsurprisingly) turns out.

Aren't you coming up on your one-year anniversary? I seem to remember you disappearing for a bit last November (I think?). Smart, good-looking young man like yourself, with all that experience, you've got to have a marketable resume by now, no?

O.K., I have no idea what you look like, that was a throw-in, but I can tell you from personal experience that the **** you put with now is an investment against your future job. You just have to slog through and keep that in mind to keep you sane. Some of the crappiest jobs I've had have led to some really good ones.

Then, the next thing you need to learn, is to recognize a great job and not leave it for "something better." I've done that too . . . Smiley: banghead

I had to call her because a work-related media account is in her name, and we need control of it, but can't get it through any other channel we want to go through. Not that the call did anything to help there...

And apparently I had to call because the person in question has been ignoring emails from my boss (which isn't remotely surprising, given the circumstances). Not that she was any happier to speak with me. She was quite pleased to say hello to former coworkers at least, so I felt less **** about bothering her (having never met her).

Also,

I'm **** as **** and everyone some of you know it. Smiley: grin

Right now, I'm looking at positions in publishing. One was actually posted today that I really want, but we'll see. They want experience in publishing, but I'm hoping I'll be able to squeeze past that.

The thing that sucks is that publishing is a very closed sector, so starting at the very bottom seems to be the only option for anyone looking to enter the field. I'll have to take a sizable pay cut to do it, but I figure it's worth not being miserable. Smiley: lol

I do know this position gave me a lot of experience, and I learned a lot. And if I was a more driven type, I'd probably love it. But money isn't really a big motivator for me (if I have enough for my needs, I'm happy), and I'm not particularly ambitious where my career path is concerned.

As of right now, I've been here about 8 months now (with the fortune of it looking like 9 on a resume). I can make it 3 more if I have to. Smiley: tongue

I really do hope I get an interview, though.
