1000 open doors [Nov. 22nd, 2000|06:20 pm]
Roy Janik
Errrm, Hi. My name is Roy. I promised myself I would never actually use this thing, but I think I need a journal's comfort right about now. Why make it public, you ask? Hopefully, others will have some useful advice from time to time. God knows, I could use it.

Let me tell you about myself. I'm 23, a computer programmer, and living in Austin, TX. I work for Tivoli Systems, which pays me way too much money. It's okay, but it's slowly crushing my soul. I'm currently taking graduate classes towards my masters degree. That, however, is going nowheres fast, and I'm thinking about dropping out.

Not to go into the sordid details, but I'm also suddenly sans girlfriend. We dated for three years, and two days ago she ended it. I'm still madly in love with her, and have no idea what to do with myself. My first instinct is to try like hell to get her back, but that may prove impossible.

So I find myself in a unique position. My future, unlike ever before, is uncharted territory. I'm probably NOT going to be a professor, helping to create sentient computers. The love of my life is at large. My job is okay, but by living in Austin, I could really get a new job anywhere in a matter of days.

There are a 1000 open doors, and a thousand futures waiting for me. Now I just need to pick one.

Does this sound like the beginning to a TV Comedy/Drama or what?

hi roy.

glad to see you're enjoying austin (for the most part). sorry to hear of recent events. i hate when people say this, but your situation sounds eerily similar to mine (except i am not making loads of money). i'd offer advice, but it probably wouldn't be any good. anyway, you seem to be keeping a fairly good outlook on things. :)
