    Talking cheatos is back

    You last visited: 10.07.13 at 20:47

    Hello friends,

    It's great to see many of the old regulars (OGs) still visit.

    So what has cheatos been doing these years? well here goes:

    A lot has passed since 2013, I had underwent 4 surgeries (2 critical and 2 non-critical), sadly this affected my University grades (graduated with sub 3.0 GPA) and affected my life overall. Post the surgeries, I began to develop some kind of depression.

    I finished University, got my degree and couldn't get a stable job as an Electrical Engineer (1 month quit, 3 months quit...etc), everything was a sales position for a foreign already-engineered product, I hated it. I freelanced, mainly PHP CodeIgniter/Laravel and backend projects for a almost a year for a (family) client who didn't pay me anything and I didn't give his projects back lawl , but at least I got a shitton of experience on backend and frontend development.

    After that, I asked my family for money and went to the United Kingdom and got a Master's degree in Software Engineering on the hopes I could escape my third world shithole country and do some real engineering. I landed a few interviews, some with no-name companies and 2 with really high profile companies that every pleb dream to work with but I got rejected every time. Sometimes I got rejected in as fast as 7 hours (probably filtered by ATS systems) or filtered at the "Do you have the right to work in X country?".

    I thought I was the brightest kid in programming, I wasn't. It felt so shit to be rejected by a 3 years experience younger-than-me guy with an undergrad degree in Geography. Well, it's their country, their rules. In the end, I couldn't take a Brit guy's job, I thought with the dey took'er jerbs memes, I'd have a great shot at getting a work visa, boy i was so wrong.

    Anyway, I went to the regular check-up for my post-surgeries and the NHS nurse noticed something wrong, the disease is back, she goes to the next door and the consultant doctor sees me and confirms it. I was due for another 2 surgeries. By now I had developed severe depression, always rejected and a diseases wants me dead. I said mhm okay, the UK should be an advanced country, absolutely nothing could go wrong, right? Nope, the NHS is underfunded and understaffed and I had to wait 2 months for MRI scan and 4 months for the consultant to see me again. I wait. The consultants needs 1 more month to book the surgery but sadly it's time to leave the UK. I was able to pass all subjects and score an 80 in the thesis so money wasn't wasted in the end.

    I return back home, do the first surgery, success, apply for an ok government job and I get accepted because I'm overqualified now.

    SB-I days were a great time of my younger years (10.06.09 holy, it's been 9 years already!, I was 15 when I joined, now 24). I learned a lot in this forum. So far, even in my professional life, I wasn't able to reproduce what 16 years old me did (thousands of software downloads here).

    I hope you're doing better than me @anon, @sbfreak, @mihai, @instab, @hellman and others

    Firstly, this deserves its own thread.

    Secondly, sorry for not replying as soon as you posted. I was the only one in my office who kept going to work after we got the "you're done on March 31st" e-mail, which meant I had thrice the workload plus the responsibility of leaving things as well as possible before parting myself. Needless to say, the last ten days have been hard. Every time I got home I could only think of making dinner and go to sleep, I couldn't even visit here at all.

    Thirdly... wow. This is a great surprise. It's so nice to see you still remember us after so long!

    I'm sad after reading that your experiences have been bittersweet, and that you haven't been well both physically and mentally. But as cliché as it sounds, look at all the things you were able to achieve. In the last months leading to your hiatus I remember posts about being anxious and storing computer parts in different cupboards so you wouldn't be tempted to go waste time online; now you've graduated and got the degree. Then you got some real-world work experiences, even if they didn't last long. Then you resolved to go to a foreign country just to improve your education even more, and did exactly that.

    Finding a job is a bitch, I'm sure I applied to at least a hundred places before I was able to find something steady (and now I lost it, duh). Just keep going at it. With two degrees under your belt, you're bound to find something good eventually.

    I'd like to finish this "letter" with two thoughts...

    One, it may not look like it, but things will get better, so keep your head up. It's not just Sazzy, everyone here who knows you is rooting for you, even if we can't do much from the other side of the screen.

    Two, I don't care if it's been years and What.cd no longer exists and I lost my login URL for the discussion forum, we have to finish that SB-I videogame one day

    You don't have to a apologize, I appreciate your post and glad you got the time to reply!

    Thirdly... wow. This is a great surprise. It's so nice to see you still remember us after so long!
    Of course I do. The thanks goes both ways I think, I expected my account to be deleted or demoted or something.

    In the last months leading to your hiatus I remember posts about being anxious and storing computer parts in different cupboards so you wouldn't be tempted to go waste time online; now you've graduated and got the degree.
    Oh yeah, that was my trusty old PC that I hid so I don't fail the "high-school diploma" (Core2Quad Q6700, http://www.sb-innovation.de/members/...7-showoff.html), I gave it to my father and now I have 4790k. Pretty old now, the 8700k looks interesting but with Intel's latest fuck ups, my new processor might be an AMD one, a first for me if that happens!

    Finding a job is a bitch, I'm sure I applied to at least a hundred places before I was able to find something steady (and now I lost it, duh). Just keep going at it. With two degrees under your belt, you're bound to find something good eventually.
    Indeed it is, perhaps we were born a little bit too late, ATS (Applicant tracking systems) (fuck you Taleo) are the worst invention thing ever, although they are a necessary evil, but why did they have to exist once I got my first degree

    I'm sad after reading that your experiences have been bittersweet, and that you haven't been well both physically and mentally. But as cliché as it sounds, look at all the things you were able to achieve.

    Then you got some real-world work experiences, even if they didn't last long. Then you resolved to go to a foreign country just to improve your education even more, and did exactly that.

    Thanks! I appreciate the thoughts.

    I'm supposed to start the new job in either mid-april or the 1st of May, they (the government HR dude in the institute i'd be working at) said "we'll call you". I was like "okay, bro?".

    The good thing about government jobs is short working hours, I hope i can make use of that by freelancing as well.

    I hope you you win the job lottery too! Please keep us updated.

    Two, I don't care if it's been years and What.cd no longer exists and I lost my login URL for the discussion forum, we have to finish that SB-I videogame one day
    hehe, I still have the forum login and password but I haven't tested them again yet. Anyway, I have attached some of the games' assets, perhaps the game will be as good as FFXV, I mean it's been in development hell too

    Welcome back. Glade you came out OK of all the circumstances. I'm surprised you used Laravel and didn't found a job that quick. You could just do a freelance online (even now). Anyway, glade you're back, OK, defeated the fucking depression and hope you well. See you around.

    Thakns! I plan to continue freelancing, I didn't land a quick Laravel job because I was mainly using the outdated CodeIgniter, I guess I started using Laravel a little bit later.

    You should really consider moving away from Facebook.

    No he won't, he doesn't even know what you're talking about
    I don't even know how we got to this subject, but hey...


    Hey anon did you ever consider becoming a shrink or love counselor. I think it would be a good fit.

    A shrink who often can't understand other people and a love counselor who never even held a girl's hand? Life isn't a romantic comedy, bro
