Do you engineer ways to BE stressed or ways to Avoid stress???

I'm guessing with brewing as a hobby, it's the later.

Cannot avoid stress....only minimise it to below the point of "cracking up"!

I'm a graduate student. Not much money in it, sadly.

Back in the day (mid 70's) we used to get $450 per month, which was pretty much top end for TA's. Somehow that was enough...usually even had extra to buy a couple of albums every month. Now I make that in a half a day, and I have less disposable income than I had back then. Except for the kids, I'd swap places with you in a heartbeat.

Yeah, if I manage to bill out a full eight hours...but that's hard to do as much time as I spend here.

Write f*&^#$ing software. After 30+ years, I am really f*#^$ing tired of writing software.

Sorry...I know I shouldn't shoot the messenger, and on top of that I should count my blessings.

Still tho...I really, really hate software.
