And just to rub salt into the wound, I didn't get the job I was interviewing for the day after.

Stressed as fudge about uni project due in about a week and a half, currently way behind schedule. Not that big a deal, it only counts for 25% of my final degree result, so no pressure or anything.

Edit:
Been thinking lately that uni has been a bit of a waste of time for me, I feel like I haven't really learned much in the last 4 years that I couldn't quite easily have taught myself, given the vast range of material available online. I'd also argue that by having to devote so much time to uni assignments and the like, I've had very little time to devote to working on personal projects that would help me stand out more in interviews. Sure, some of the uni assignments can be repurposed for use as part of a portfolio, but I feel like I could have done so much more with the last 4 years than that.

My antidepressants also don't seem to be helping much with the complete lack of motivation for uni work, hence being behind schedule for this project. I enjoy the subject material, but I found it a lot easier to stay motivated when I was teaching myself and learning as I go. I feel like half the classes are wasting my time because I could actually be applying the knowledge rather than sitting through lectures about it. I'm a quick learner, I can pick up what I need to know when I need it, rather than staring at a powerpoint about something I have no need for now and forgetting it all by the time I do actually have a use for it.

My wifi has decided to dive to very, very low speeds for the past day or so. (It's ziggo, not that I decided that provider...) Grumpyness ensues.

I got a game prototype that I need to have done by Friday and hopefully it won't play like garbage :)

In the grander scheme of things there's a good chance the contract my company has will run out and I'm not super sure my prospects in this area are great haha

Turned out it was a misunderstanding about when the wifi contract would expire(a housemate is moving). At least the wifi next door is still decent. I always had access to that one, but only recently was that updated to not be extremely poor.

We need a topic to announce our daily checks to convince each other we're still very much alive even if nobody posts much. Seriously, I think we're more active then it seems.

I check this place a few times a day to see if there's anything going on. I'm 95% of the time checking on mobile though, which makes posting mostly too much effort.

My life has been pretty much a continual disaster for this entire start of the year, so yeah.

There's a reason it didn't happen.

Antidepressants dose increased because they weren't doing anything. Still haven't finished project which is now over two weeks late, which means that unless they take into account personal circumstances it's going to be subject to a 30% penalty. Id I don't pass the project I need to resit the year. Girlfriend is out playing board games with her friends from uni and I'm sitting at home alone, jealous of the fact that this is the third time she's been out with friends this week while I only get to see her once a fortnight. Also feeling guilty because I know how stupid and petty that sounds. To make it sound even pettier, I'm actually somewhat upset about the fact that when she mentioned she was playing board games with friends from uni, she joked about me and our mutual friends here being replaced.

I also now feel old because this website is over half my age.

It's ten years ago that I began guest posting. We are all scared when we consider our WWN milestones I guess...
