    Thankfully I love what I am studying Ghys (MEng Electronics, Communications & Software with Diploma in Industrial Studies) but 3 years in, I have to admit that it is getting mighty tough and with work so (don't want to say busy, don't want to say stressful...) crazy at the moment as well it is sucking the life right out of me. I have no days off uni this semester at all, 9-5 three days and then two half days, one with lectures in the morning and one with them in the afternoon. Lots of assignments, lots of material to cover and stupidly I have (re)started an online AutoCAD course which I am doing in what little spare time I have to bring me up to speed with the 2010 version and get me a little further on with my 3D modelling and rendering skills.

    Life is too much for us all sometimes I guess. Think it's time for a holiday. Happily, I hope to be spending most of this summer working in my favourite country, Canada, at an Engineering firm in Toronto. That will be rewarding enough to make this semester worth the struggle.

    snow.

    more exactly, all the idiots in Ohio that don't know how to drive in aforementioned frozen precipitation.

    I drove from Kalamazoo MI to Dayton OH friday night in a blizzard ... and all the vehicles off the road were pickup trucks and SUV's. me and my little saturn sl1 just putted right past them at 25 mph ... laughing all the way.

    that was a good 8-10" snow ... and last night and this morning we piled up another 6-7" on top of it. and probably another 3-5" to come. yay.

    Split up with my girlfriend last week. We've been in the on-hold stage for some time as she finds it hard to commit to relationships (previous boyfriends left her due to this). Found out she likes a guy she works with now so it makes me feel pretty gutted. Trying to move on but it's really difficult. I'm 30, I should be able to handle these things.. I've managed it in the past but this time, it's different. I generally loved her.. guess that's why it's so hard to move on.

    ****ING MS EXCEL! Trying to make some graphs and this is so utter ****ing ******** it's just beyond any reason. I have multiple "tabs" now waiting for their graphs, and every ****ing tab seems to operate in totally different and utterly wrong way. Why can't the automated BS just be switched off as they obviously just make my life miserable every time I sink my hands in that steamer.

    AAAAAAAARGH. /rant, sorry about the language, guess the forum software will sort it.

    I'm right there with you with it being difficult to move on because you actually loved her, except now I have started talking to my ex again. I'm not sure though if I should try a round 2 now that we are no longer a long distance from each other or still just try to keep moving on.

    I've decided that I'm not going to try to change her mind. I'll just carry on being myself and making sure I'm still friends with her. Things may change or may not. Ultimately it's up to her now.
