I know tons of people in computer science that can trouble shoot through code and manipulate it. I mean, that is primarily what you are learning from that degree. You don't need to write the code for fucking chrome to be able to manipulate it/figure out problems.
I'm a geologist and I remember having to write and manipulate some of the existing code in ArcGIS to overcome a problem I was having. I sure as hell wasn't involved with the development of that application, nor was I even well-learnt in python.
Imagining you trying to find a job.
>prospective employer: We need you to test for bugs/problems in "x" software"
>you: Sorry dude, didn't write it. Can't help you out. You stupid or something? Lol idiot, check the manual.
I dunno if that statement holds true anymore. There are tons of retards in school now since it's the "thing to do". Education can do a nice job to mask stupidity but people always reveal their true colors.
Nah I'm aware of why it happened - it's pretty much because I live in England and she lives in Spain. Guess long distance really doesn't work!
I helped her through the actual worst time in her life and I just feel like she's thrown me aside after she got through it which fucking s u c k s.
Long distance is a fucking headache. Avoid at all costs... Just not worth the time.
Welcome to people being shitty people. Some people just suck.
Don't lose yourself though. Just because one person did this to you doesn't mean ever proceeding girlfriend will. Don't stoop to their level. Take solace in knowing she'll probably get new boyfriends that will treat her like shit and she'll regret breaking up with you, while you'll find another girl that will actually appreciate the fuck out of you.
Stay strong brother. It's going to be tough for the next little while. Just stay busy and with friends. Don't settle down right away, play the market a bit.
