    All winter quarter hybrid and in-person labs cancelled. I guess the "Let's setup outdoor tents for mechanical and electrical engineering labs" idea did not play out well.

    Ultrawide monitor pricing and availability has been crazy over past few months. Was close to purchase a couple of times, but before doing so there either was no more stock available or prices have sky rocketed. A 2015 Dell U3415W still costs around 600 Euros, sometimes even reaching 700 Euros... How do you like them apples...

    I'm bothered by statements about a particular GPU being "overkill" for a certain resolution. It's almost like some people don't realize many of us like to play above 60 fps. I've owned a ton of GPU's over the last 20 years, and never once did I have one that maxed out all my games in every resolution at max refresh. Even a 3080 isn't overkill for 1080p!

    so I did a proper IQ test...I used to score around 130-150 but im suffering from a type of schizophrenia and everytime I have a psychotic episode it causes damage to the brain..now after 20 years of damage my iq was 32 points out of 70 mind you I had a few beer. and it was a high IQ test not a standard. However questions that I would normally have found easy 15-20 years ago were mind numbingly tricky. feel depressed..although IQ tests are not the most important thing in life they are a great indicator of capacity and utility of ideas.

    The whole covid situation....and 2020 in general.

    Endless disappointments and fighting. Cant go see family and friends to unwind, and I cant even get that shiny new toy to distract myself.

    Also, an unexpected amount of ostracization due to my job.

    Normally sleep like a baby, midnight to 8AM. I'm waking up at 6AM for NO reason the last solid week. No idea what the problem is, and that's the worst part.
