Re: Warning! Off topic Rant in 3...2....1....

Mimi it's probably just one of those phases that we all go through when we approach a new decade.Your next birthday will come and go, without all the evaluating and soul searching.I reckon you'll feel great because you've still got another 9 years to go until your 40!

Have a great birthday!

Re: Warning! Off topic Rant in 3...2....1....

Ouchboy, that is definitely not a rant, but rather a blueprint for an excellent stand-up comedy routine, and one that many people over 30 would enjoy immensely!

Perhaps you might consider a change in careers?

I couldn't it's too premeditated here. I can more or less think on the delivery. On a stage I Would choke like Bush on a pretzel.

Re: Warning! Off topic Rant in 3...2....1....

3 years...

I feel like I Lost steam. The las few weeks have been a constant pain at work. It seems like a dead end, other options are not opening up despite my efforts (Master's , other job positions)

I think I came to this with the fact that I've been capping my posting limit fairly often....

I like CH, I don't hate the people and I don't have anything to complain about this country. My job, well that's something else....


Maybe it's just time to go back?. I don't know... I'll take the trip to Japan to figure it out.

Happy 3 years to me

Re: Warning! Off topic Rant in 3...2....1....

Chin up Ouchie. You have good friends here, which can get you through a lot. . . And the trip to Japan will help put things in perspective.

Remember, you only work so you can play. Keep the work/life balance, your eye out for something new, and things will work out.

Turn 30 in September, and dont care at all, I still manage to balance being immature and mature when needed, though I doubt my fiance or mother agree! Good post though for a rant

Re: Warning! Off topic Rant in 3...2....1....

Enjoy your trip to Japan (number one on my wishlist, so I am really jealous right now), and stay positive.

I am in the process of shopping around/ selecting a new martial arts studio to start back in September, as I haven't practiced seriously in a year (I used to practice daily) and I miss my practice like the air that I breathe. My discipline, Kuk Sool Won, is not taught in Switzerland, but I think my choice might fall on Aikido, which is the most similar I've seen so far.

When you come back, I'd like to exchange impressions. Ciao!

A little bird told me that Ouchboy is also a ninja. I would like to see if we also share the passion for training with weapons, particularly swords

Re: Warning! Off topic Rant in 3...2....1....

Following the insipid lolcat, I would like to give you some sensible advice (yes people I know..I'm not the most sensible one )...but still here it goes. As an athlete you should know, that performance happens in cycles. It's the same with life as well. You can have everything set and work hard towards your goal and yet, it takes a few minor banana peals to throw things out of order. They key thing is to keep focused and be resilient and patient. Know when to take a timeout (like you do now with your trip to Japan)...this will give you a new perspective and re-energize you. Look at me, I hate my job and I can't stand this country and the people and bicker about lolcats online....the only thing that keeps me sane (no funny jokes here people)......is the goal I'm working towards to. If you wish to do a masters or even change jobs, I'm certain that you'll be able to achieve that...but maybe you should try again...and if that fails, try it again with a different approach. You're an intelligent and creative person..don't give up on yourself.

Re: Warning! Off topic Rant in 3...2....1....

Work? Man, I love my work (and the fact that I have it) but sometimes I feel like throwing my colleagues out of the window.

When I go back to the roots, I jump into the ocean like a mad Labradoodle (even in winter), but 2 weeks later I can't wait to come back to my boring work.

3 years are too long, man. You've been contaminated by the dark side. You can never go back...

I've been trynig for 2 years. ETH fail, (On a research project that is coincidentallyrelated to what I'm doing. you need data i gotz it... go figure )job app fail. so yeah break time, but I need to move, at 3 years. I am bored out of my mind with a job that it's pretty much a batch and that everyone seem to rely on with no expected gain on my part.

Sometimes I want to quit, buy a beach chair and sit infront of the office to see what happens.
