What's ruining your life right now?

Currently, i'm trying to juggle 5 AP classes and bring all of my grades quickly before the end of the quarter (in two days). It looks like i'm getting a C- in English, but at least a B- in everything else, and at least two As.

Hopefully colleges won't let the first quarter of my senior year cause them to decline me. (in the U.S., universities look at the first 3 years of high school and the first semester of senior year when determining who to admit and who to decline).

I got cheated out of a consultant job because the incompetent recruiter changed jobs, said I didn't qualify for the position, and never passed on my resume to his replacement. 28+ yrs. in IT and I'm not qualified? I have more experience than he has years.

There was harsh words and finger pointing. Isn't over yet. I'm in contact with regional managers and I'm out for blood. At my salary level you don't want to make mistakes or enemies.

my skin has to be the shttiest ever made. I have all the issues you could probably think of and by the age of 14 I had already accepted that someday I would have skin cancer, which I truly believe I will.

I have other issues but my skin is what started them all back when I was 12-13

I bought a refurbished XPS laptop with 2 years warranty and the company no longer exists... It worked for 14 hours. I'm now £720 down the pan, and Paypal won't do a thing to remedy it (though the seller still has a standing account :/), I'm now jobless and have no way of making the money back (Luckily I'm still at college so I don't pay for lessons)

My ex dumped me for someone that looks just like me, and the only other lass I'd even be slightly interested in has a kid on the way

The arthritis is taking hold really badly because winter's on the way, and co-codamol doesn't work anymore

Ruptured appendix a few months back followed by my gall bladder deciding to kick the bucket last week. Very few times have I hit a ten on the pain scale.

The folding @ home project and in conjunction with it, my next big build/ mod. I'm starting it some time in the next couple of weeks (gathering parts & materials at the moment) and hope to have it all done in about 4 months depending on how much free time I actually get to work on it. When completed, it will be one of the most elaborate mods I have created and also one of the fastest PCs, even though it's going to be a dedicated FaH machine.

The other thing that is going to determine how much free time I get to work on that project is my degree. 3 years in and things are hotting up. I have a lot of work to do before my Janurary exams and pretty much need to stay in the top 5% of my class to make it to the placement I want and need next year. That's if anyone is actually hiring this year

So the short answer is: Work, Mods and University

EDIT: this'll teach me to go on the forums before my eyes have woken up properly. I thought the thread was entitled "What's running your life at the moment?". I retract the above post now knowing what the thread is about

Air in the hot water system. It makes the pump noisy, and I have no idea how to get it out.
