Congrats man, good luck to you. But it getting the degree goes faster than you'd think.

I was going through some rough patches, nothing too serious merely psychological barriers which through my home method of listening to music as therapy (primarily Limp Bizkit, believe it or not, it does get the negative energy out) I am now at peace with myself. ^_^

Yep, Metal is great for venting emotions

Well, this is going to sound very morose, but life at my house is getting back to normal. My grandfather died Tuesday, so now that we got the rest of his stuff to Goodwill, its finally over. The interruptions, the enormous amount of time spent on a selfish, ungrateful person all done and over with. Anyway, its nice to have my life back, whatever it may be, I can do what I want when I want again.

It was a satisfying semi final in Exatlon Estados Unidos (which after swearing not to see it last night curiosity got the better of me but I kept my temper under control). Kenny beat Adrian to secure the male slot in the final two and Marisela "Chelly" near perfectly edged out "La Hormiga Atomica" Lorena (whom I couldn't stand and was glad to see her lose) to seize the female space in the finals which had to be postponed to next week because Kenny got sick from bad food and was taken to the local hospital in Santo Domingo. My mom hopes Kenny will be alright to compete in the finals and wonders if he doesn't get the ok from the doctors to compete whether it will mean that Chelly will have to rematch with Lorena which I really hope doesn't happen.

A couple of days ago I went to this concert.

On the way back in the bus I was watching RahXephon on my phone. As we approached Oxford, the two students sitting next to me hesitantly asked what I was watching. When I told them they were duly surprised that I could know about anime, let alone one they themselves didn't know. We went on to have a brief but intense chat which was quite fun.

It's always amusing to reveal that one's power-level is higher than they can imagine : when we were on holiday at the start of July, after dinner on the Saturday, I was sitting in the communal area at Sandpipers with my laptop, watching the last episode of DarliFra, when one of the young volunteers asked what anime that was I was watching. The idea that I was watching a title he'd never even heard of, mere hours after it had aired in Japan, clearly went deep into "Does not compute" territory.

@Topic
I had a very good session at the gym today -- after a lot of warming up and stretching, as the culmination of a couple of intensive months' work, I finally managed to overcome decades of hunching over keyboards -- and bicycle handlebars -- and mount the bar in preparation for doing squats without having the sinews across my shoulders and upper arms registering their discomfort. If I can do that repeatably, it means it's time to actually book up another training session to start putting all the moves together.

A friend of mine also recently started with hormone replacement. It's not all love, peace and harmony, as you put your body under quite the stress load; but the feeling to finally become the person that she is makes it worth it.

Well, I know it's a little early to be saying anything, but I may be very close to having a full time job. The place I'm working at seems to realize how good I am at doing my work and fixing the problems that I keep finding from the predecessors in my positions. Anyway, I asked the other day and they are working on it, its just corporate is a bit slow on the uptake at hiring people.

Also, I'm working on my fourth master's degree, which is going well so far too.

Congratulations your job situation! Also, fourth (!) master's degree... wow! Man, is the job market really that fucked where you live, that you need four masters theses to have job prospects? :|
I'm just curious, in which fields did you write the theses?

^ Thank you robersora ^_^ and to answer your question, the first three were all in business to compliment my undergrad accounting degree, an MBA, an MSA (Masters in accounting) and an MSOL (Organizational Leadership). The fourth one compliments my criminal justice undergrad with a degree in counter-terrorism.

And yes, the job market for people in their 20s is rough, everyone wants a lot of education and 10+ years of experience for a lot of roles, but also want someone young and capable of looking at things in different way who isn't set in their ways. It's all very contradictory, but that's business I guess :chinscratch:
