About sometime last month, my 3tb external hdd started acting up (had a couple bad sectors). After a few google searches, I decided to run chkdsk on it and waited for it. Unfortunately, earlier this month had to restart my laptop so I had to restart chkdsk again. Today, chkdsk was actually about halfway done. Did some more google searching, got hd tune, hesitantly stopped chkdsk, ran hd tune, and found out it was 100% damaged. Restarted my laptop, unplugged the hdd, plugged it back in, and ran hd tune again and it was still damaged. I don't mind that it was damaged since I was able to get all the important stuff off it and then formatted it, but if I had done this last month it would have saved a bunch of time and not to mention I would've replaced the hdd by now.

I just can't go another day without feeling paranoid as shit anymore, worrying if every one of my relationships is just fake as shit with people and that my life is in a tumbling downward spiral into a deep black abyss.

Apparently someone is going around making up mean bullshit and claiming that I said it. I'm not a saint but I don't go around randomly insulting people or spreading slander for fun so I'm rather pissed off.

It's even better when people make up bullshit and claim that you thought it. Because then what you said or didn't say doesn't actually matter, it's the interpretation. Which, as we know, is a free artform.

I currently have no job and enough money to last me maybe 4-5 weeks. This doesn't worry me TOO much yet because there's some good stuff coming up and my parents have already said that they're ready to help as needed, but this is a very uncomfortable situation. I just wish my school actually gave a shit, instead of sending me down a bunch of bureaucratic exercises in time-wasting bullshit.

applying for jobs sux. I have been applying to jobs since April and absolutely zilch, nada. I have been applying for research positions at hospitals and such, which is what I have most experience on. After my graduation this May, on June I got a call for a research position at some prestigious hospital, only to find out that there are no benefits for me and that I have to travel to some distant city out of the city I live in (pretty freakin far). I don't have a car yet have a driver's license, and the lady that interviewed me said there will be a zip car (those rental car things). Some weeks later, for the second interview, she said the zip car is out of the question and that the travel expenses are on me (have to pay out of pocket). So most of what I will get paid will all go down the drain just on travel expenses. So now I am unemployed and still applying for jobs and most of my family is bugging me to get a job as if it were that easy. People giving me a hard time when all I need is some shoulder to cry on. My older sisters say all the time to suck it up, because that is life. Yeah I know I have to suck it up, but they don't realize how frustrating it is and they don't know the meaning of compassion. Some days I just want to run away.....far far away and live in a box somewhere because that is all my family is making me feel like. They are pushing me away little by little.

Nah, my thing was never permanent. It's a contract job. I was promised an internship in Toronto, and the stupid thing is, I could have pushed to get another teaching contract, but since this seemed like a definite thing I didn't (in fact my department first offered me a teaching job, then turned me down as soon as they heard about this internship). But now the internship has sort of slipped and will probably not start till October-November at the earliest. In the meantime, the department aren't being their friendliest and in fact if it weren't for this internship, I suspect they would not be of any help in preventing Grad Studies (who are on my ass because, like most other PhD students, I'm taking much longer to finish my studies than the 4-year program term) from kicking me out. So it's sort of a shitty situation where I need this internship to continue my studies (my dissertation is even sort of riding on it), but it's preventing me from looking for other jobs and turning into a longer gap than I can fund.

On the bright side, if my school has nothing to offer me in the next month or so, my parents have already offered me to go with them on a road trip to British Columbia and be their main driver for about 3 weeks, which would sort of solve the whole "I don't have any money to live on" issue for a little bit \o/

your scaring me Otohiko from getting a phd. My adviser at my school said it takes in general 2 years just like masters.


ughh....been applying for jobs all damn day. Resumes, cover letters, and all that jazz. On top of that I am still studying to get into my masters program at a university for speech pathology. My brain is about to fry that not even Hannibal would love

Lol, your advisor lied. It does vary by discipline, but the average actual time it takes to get a PhD is 6-7 years. That's on top of a masters, of course. It tends to be slightly less in technical disciplines, slightly more in humanities and social scientists. I work with multiple people who took a decade or longer to finish their PhD. Now been in the program for more than 5 years myself, which makes this the start of my 11th year in college. The ironic thing is that I'm now sick of academia and despise the university bureaucracy, and while I still love teaching, I can't wait to get the hell out of this environment.
