Sometimes being in software development really rocks my boat to the point where it tips over and crashes on the rocks on the sea flour. MIS/ICT is not a magic carpet school bus ride. There is more ignorance than there is knowledge. They say sometimes you have to live and let die but I am not high enough to stay high all the time. It takes a whole lot of time and effort to get things going and when things do not work the way you expect you either have to find a quick solution. Or just hope the ugly expensive ducklings die quietly.
I am not easily impressed. In fact it might be easier to simply avoid even trying. It will turn out better in the long run. I straddle several worlds at the same time. I am the laziest, most productive time waster you could probably ever know. If you ask me I would tell you that you are wasting your time with a quickness that would help me avoid wasting my own time telling you that you are wasting your time. And at the same time I might say that you could get better if you keep at it. But right now I am not so sure it isnt trash.
I do not know if pain is a path to more pleasure. That sounds like someone trying to explain away life's tragedies. It is better to embrace them. My general point is that if and when a tree falls in the forest we as human beings will certainly get crushed. Some of us will survive and move to stand under another tree, and another and another. Trees will even grow up and fall. Until in the end we all are standing under so many trees that any tree in the forest that falls will certainly fall on someone's head. Why? Because we hate standing in the sun.
