    Take it easy, bud... Give yourself a little distraction. Go do something you probably never or rarely do, like catch a movie or 2, grab your shorts and hit the local swimming pool or gym for an hour or two...

    Usually doing something a little physical helps. Don't go overboard and try to bench 300 Lbs on your 1st night at the gym or something.... Just try something distracting, safe, cheap and preferably physical...

    This is a prety stressful or hectic time of year anyway, so just toss the carputer stuff in the closet until after Christmas or until the New Year.... It'll wait... and so will we

    Hope my .02 helps

    BTW, I just read your website, and although you've had your share of snags along the way, (haven't we all...) you actually had some pretty good successes, so don't be too hard on yourself

    I couldn't agree more. I had a similar situation this summer when I got fired from a job. They didn't give any indication it was coming, and they never told me why I was canned. I just walked into work that day for my shift and the manager told me I was a goner.

    I was of course upset and very ****ed off, and questioning everything I had done. So, after driving around town for half an hour, I finally decided to go for a long jog. I went for almost and hour and a half and when I got home, I felt much better.

    You'd be surprised what just pounding the pavement can do for ya. Good luck, mate.

    Whether going to get your bachelor's or associate's degree, the college should be able to teach you a programming language within the first couple of semesters when you arrive. Don't sweat it, with that one elective (or mandatory) course, you'll be on your way to programming - probably starting out with C++.

    Heck, when I went, my first classes were for Pascal (ugh), then Ansi-C, and finally C++. Don't let that obstacle stand in the way - talk to the college's counselor and ask him about programming classes they offer.

    lstrunk: your college woes sound the same as mine. my freshman year i was in Computer Science but i struggled so bad with programming that i changed my major to Computer Engineering. CE is more technical and even though it does a minimal amount of programming, at least its not 100% programming. You might want to consider Computer Engineering an option. I know there arent a lot of schools out there that offer it. Only 8 schools here in Illinois do.

    I know exactly how you feel. My life for the last 21 years has always been 1 step forward and 10 steps back. No matter what I do, it blows up in my face (sometimes literally ). This is true with computers, relationships, cars...basically everything I do.

    The way I deal with it is threefold:
    1. I don't care. It's easier said than done, but it does work. If you don't care, it's really difficult for something to bother you.
    2. Sarcasm and humour. Inappropriate humour is a great release, but can serve to alienate you from most of society. But since you are using Method #1, that doesn't really matter.
    3. Target sports. Archery, sport rifle, laser tag, etc. Need I say more?

    I know what you are going through....

    Last night I found out that my girlfriend has been cheating on me, so I went to see a friend for someone to talk to and vent a little bit. She promptly told me to **** off which sent me even lower. So I ended up going on a bender last night which caused me to miss an exam this morning.

    life is just peachy, dont you think?
