~General Question~

A friend of a good friend is going through a depression, and while that friend is getting help I don't know what I can do for my best friend. It's clearly not easy for him too. Any advice?


Go watch Blade Runner 2049 in theatres if you thought the original was cool, avoid the damn trailers, they promise a movie that doesn't really happen. I watched it earlier this Saturday:


I'm slowly collecting job offers here and there. Partly because I don't really know what I want, partly so I can get multiple offers and use them as leverage in negotiations. Yesterday I had two job interviews. Man is it ever exhausting to have two hour-plus long, hyper-focused conversations where I need to make a great first impression.

I think I did great though, I asked good questions and both companies definitely want to continue the conversation. One was for a GIS consultant position at an IT company, the other was for '(geo)data scientist & consultant in sustainable urban planning projects'. The former doesn't really do me much, the latter company and position almost seems made for me. But I'm not jumping at the first thing I love, I want to keep my cool and take my time deciding what I want to do. Especially since I also submitted my application for the PhD position I mentioned two weeks ago. While I made a pretty strong case for why I'm a good candidate, I have a lot of doubts about the position,

both whether I even can do something like that and whether I want to do something like that.

The best thing you can do about 2nd degree depression is remind them that their friend is being a stay-at-home dick because they're working through some shit and that they shouldn't take it personally.

That's it.

Bought evening tickets for Blade Runner 2049. I've managed to avoid most of the trailers. CANNOT WAIT

Re: General Question

Just had a friend post this on Facebook. Thought of you. Didn't realize this was 2 weeks ago.
