Allow me to use this as a place to vent off some steam to some not-so-strangers. I don't know where else to go right now since all my good friends have their own huge problems as well and I don't want them to worry about me when they have bigger stuff to worry about.

I don't know it seems like when things are crappy, things just all happen simultaneously. Anyway, a little bit of career angst. I'm kind of getting fed up with departmental politics at my uni and I'm questioning whether I really want to get into academia after spending the past 10 years of my life trying to do it. But then, what is there besides this for me? I've been so far removed from the job market that I feel I have no other marketable skills other than teaching and I just feel tired of it. I used to be a computer programmer but my technological expertise is circa 1996. And I don't really want to go back to computers anyway. I feel a need to take a break... But I feel that in any job I do, I'll be competing with the best college graduates 10 years younger than me.

And then on top of this, some personal stuff. I still really haven't gotten over my ex-gf. I guess I have but I just can't stand it when I'm watching relationships change their nature, aware of it, but not being able to do anything about it. We've been just very good friends-- best friends even since we've split up when she decided to move back to New York, and we used to call each other every night or every other night. But I feel that now, 6 months after, she's already starting to have a life and meeting new people, and I feel that she needs me a lot less now than she used to. And I'm just here, not even meeting new people (trust me SSC has nothing to do with it because I still party and still go to the bars-- I still have a social life, just not with anybody new. What happens when you hang out with a lot of lesbians is that all the new people you meet turn out to also be lesbians haha.). And with all my problems, I feel I need her as a friend more than she cares to acknowledge me because of the newness of a big city with interesting people.

Anyway, whatever.... I'm opening myself up a lot. But oh well, this is pathetic. Thanks for indulging me.
i hope things turn out well for you in 2006 i read this and i can relate to some things you said.....i remember when i was still new to these forums and i had a big problem and i let it out in these forum ( yung dating job issue ko na naka stress sakin that i ended up quiting which was so risky but i did it anyway)....actually it help me a bit....its better to let it out than let it build up diba?....Mike btw have to tried to meet new people in a different atmosphere?...u dont seem to be visiting SSC as much as you use too...

me when i feel so depressed i play my guoitar and it inspires me to to compositions...

i had a painful experience sa ex ko na kaibigan pa rin ng mga ibang ka friends ko...(i was able to write a song tapus tnugtog namin ng mga kabanda ko...taglish nga lang) ...anyway hope you feel better

@boybaha--hang in there! I hate to make things more complicated or offend anyone in here, but life isn't always guaranteed to improve with that post-grad degree. Although it does provide an asset that may prove beneficial at some point, by remaining in your area of specialization, you must truly believe that it will be the career where you can feel happy. I wonder how many of us just work to primarily pay the bills--I mean, a job has to have some redeeming qualities where you can feel productive and find some sense of reward in what you do.

Anyway, to all those forumers who came to the aid of boybaha, you each deserve multiple dosages of Godiva chocolates basking in a heap of Cold Stone Mountain French vanilla ice cream--what true friends you are indeed! This is one unique blog where a sense of family or security has obviously developed among some forumers. Way to go!!

Uy sarap, Cold Stone ice cream with Godiva chocolate!!!

You're absolutely right on the job thingy... I absolutely envy people who really like what they're doing, though it doesn't pay much (though, of course, it would be better if it did, hehe). My current job pays well, but I can't say that I'm fully satisfied. I guess it's up to each of us to find the 'balance' that would keep us happy.

Phew! I was gone the weekend and all this drama transpired! Well Mike (and the rest reading), I know it sounds cliche, but "This too shall pass." There you have it, my own two cents on the topic, it may not be much right now but it appreciates in value as time pass by and you're far removed from the situation you're currently in.

BTW, feeling GLAD because two classmates of mine from high school in the Philippines (but are currently living here in the US for some time now) paid me a surprised visit over the weekend! I'm still feeling high from a totally unplanned, unexpected and unscripted fun weekend.

Good for you Kimber! I love surprise visits except when they drop by to find that I haven't taken a shower and my hair is in a mess! Hehe!

It didn't come to that....I was just jarred awake by my cellphone ringing at 6:00am last Saturday saying that they just arrived in town and want to spend the weekend with me. I was too groggy to comprehend at first but when I got my senses straight I jumped out of bed and into the shower and got myself ready, then met them at the hotel they were staying at.

yup! as long as they call beforehand. i don't know but my friends in the Phils before had the habit of just dropping by whenever. One time, they dropped by and I was just in a holey Tshirt and boxers. Plus I didn't have any hair product on and so my hair was in a semi-aphro (my hair tends to stand up even if it is 6inches long. my head looked like a fuzz ball). To top it off, they brought along a girl that I've never met. I told her, "Of course now you realize I'm going to have to kill you!"

Hmm....maybe I should pay you a surprise visit too, but this time I'll bring a camera to document the moment!
