If you bend your mind towards the challenge, the skill will follow in your hands
I need to think about it for some time and then I'll respond, ok? Like that's a lot of time to think about of, even if I haven't been here from beginning.

Alright, so since I joined the Sep7agon, I joined it during third year of university... I finished university, got bachelor degree first then masters degree with honors in computer science. My grandpa died right before I got masters degree.

Then after I finished university, I had to go into millitary service and I already mentally prepared myself to it, but then in a mid of that my mom got fired from a job due to cutting personnel (preparing to close hospital entirely at some point) and my mom became a complete pensioner and I became only person that could work in my family, so I couldn't serve in military anymore (and really nobody wanted me to serve there anyway because since I got masters, I shouldn't be in military). COVID helped quite a bit here since it delayed any process regarding my service and mom worked out full pensioner.

While I had to find a job, I couldn't find any, there were a lot of problems with me personally, also there is a lot of problems with my skill set. Let's go with problems with my skill set first. My skill set is mostly developed during uni years and it mostly involves inventing (or usually reinventing) wheels. It also is a very spreaded out skill set, not aimed at anything in particular. And so I have this skill set that is both SLOW and NOT AIMED ANYWHERE. I couldn't find job with skills like mine, even if I passed interview part, I failed at test task part cause I were SLOW. Not to mention that my skills expired out. Second problem is just that at very least I'm just not passionate in programming, I just can't push it really hard. Not only that, seeing how my skill set is bad I just stopped applying for work for the most part. I tried to learn new stuff that would make me useful for business, but I just didn't push hard enough on it, I just drop learning it. Only thing that was good about me that I been somewhat useful at home, trying to help as much as I can.

However it wasn't all bad for me, while I were in this period between after end of uni and before military commissariat was deciding my destiny, I took interest in Linux and as it turned out I actually quite liked it. However, I didn't play much with it after I got of hook from military, I tried to learn web development, Angular in particular, because web developers are quite needed here. It was semi successful, I did learn some Angular, and it helps me to be faster in a way, but Angular alone is not enough for me to write websites fast enough to be at acceptable level. And then in winter I took more interest in Linux, I read materials online and eventually I went ahead of myself and built Linux From Scratch on this Intel Celeron lagtop, with bad internet and I actually didn't have any issues building it. Took me a week what would took me a day on a normal pc, but whatever, I done it. I was so proud that I almost forgot that I did exactly what was written in book and in my opinion that wasn't that much hard.

Eventually I got rid of my old CV, I wrote a draft of CV but applying for system administrator now. And then soon after my uncle interfeered and I went to work at his friends company as an uhh... currently at 20% programmer, 40% marketing, 40% retail with phone calls in a sphere of work I don't know entirely. Too bad my marketing went too good, now I have calls on stuff I don't know (selling building supplies, plumbing equipment and stuff, household goods and the list goes on) and I'm not good at phone, though I just started recently, after 2 months of being 30% programmer and 70% marketing. I don't have exactly clear guidelines either, I feel like I do work I shouldn't do, and not in the way my employer wants, I have hard time communicating with my coworkers that I don't nessecary like either and honestly I don't like this job, though I try to get most of it in terms of experience. But one company recently contacted me, they saw my draft of my system administrator CV that I never had time to finish with my 9 to 6 work and they contacted me and thought that I would be a good fit for their work. I did eventually fail at test task, only managing doing
half of it at best, but they interviewed me after it and they actually liked my attitude so much that they will offer me a job in future if I fix some holes in my knowledge and get better internet connection. They'll pay me twice of what I told them (as a base salary, with ability to grow) and of what I have right now too, given that I pull it out. So my future is not that bleak, as long as I won't be lazy at the thing I love.

Sorry for a long rant, I just haven't been posting here for some time and I decided to give some update. I don't think that I changed much for the past few years. I think that environment I'm in changed and currently things on my mind are my job and how to change it, my parents and my friends. On one hand I tend to be quite a workaholic, quite "straight to the point" man once I get annoyed by something and on the other hand my interest in system administration is high enough to spend a lot of time on it, so hopefully I work this future job opportunity out.

Hey.
I came here from b.net after a few Floods invited me. None of them post on either b.net nor here anymore, which is sad. I was still active on b.net until for some bizarre reason, b.net admins locked out people who have not played Destiny. Even if you wanted to post on the offtopic section. After that, I fully moved here and have not returned to b.net since.
Please come play Halo with me.

Well...

1. I've got a permanent job with decent benefits and insurance.

2. I've gone through 7 different girlfriends, currently on #8 now.  Wish me luck.

3. I have a modest gun collection now.

4. I've started on my Bachelor's degree and about halfway done with it.

5. I'm writing my first original novel.

6. I'm in the best shape I've ever been in, having finally achieved the 5-minute mile run I've been chasing after.  No pun intended.

I got way more attractive

I got more muscular, literally peak physical specimen

Made tons more money

I have met 1000s of different people and made close connections/relationships with hundreds of unique friends, broadening my perspective and giving me many opportunities for an exciting lifestyle

I’ve deepened my own perspective of life so much, I have a huge appreciation for every single thing in my life, just existing in general. My mood is like a constant 8-9/10 every day. I am genuinely in love with life more than I ever thought possible

I got a little bit more humble
