2012.05.09 Mood Journal

Today I'm doing OK. I’m a bit down from breaking up with Nivagi, and my back has painfully seized up twice lately, worse than it’s been in a long, long while. However, I did just have a fantastic time in Chicago visiting my friend Behu for her birthday, and this week should be pretty quiet until I go with Anfo, Jero, and Mars to see Avengers on Thursday. woot!

I have a feeling I’m going to be depressed about the Nivagi breakup for a while. I think it was the best thing to do, and I’m sure she does, too, but it’s difficult for me. We dated for almost four years, and it’s a difficult for me for me to let go. I really should have broken up with her when she started dating Tojo, but since we still had a lot of good times since then, I’m still glad I didn’t.

I’m considering going back to school. I’ve been saying for years that I should go back and “brush up” my programming skills – it’s been ten years since I worked as a software engineer – but it was never a good time to do it “right now.” However, Mars is fed up with things at work and is planning to go back, and studying CS with Mars would be frankly awesome.

Now’s also the perfect time because with the breakups with Nivagi and Trmo, I have six more free days a month – almost a week. If I’m going to start something time-consuming like school, I should do it now before my schedule calcifies into something new and I “don’t have time” again. I really should contact Ivy Tech myself soon and see what they’d recommend. With luck work will pay for it.

According to the Belief System Selector, my #1 belief match is Secular Humanism.
