    I wish I was on yonder hill 'tis there I'd sit and cry my fill, And every tear would turn a mill, Iss guh day thoo avorneen slawn.
    I'll sell my rock, I'll sell my reel, I'll sell my only spinning wheel, To buy my love a sword of steel Iss guh day thoo avorneen slawn.
    I wish, I wish, I wish in vain, I wish I had my heart again, And vainly think I'd not complain, Iss guh day thoo avorneen slawn.

The problem solving sounds exciting, so what would your dream tech job be? I am sorry to hear about your marriage. People problems are the hardest problems to solve. I love that saying, everything has a solution. Good luck.
    I do love tech things and problem solving. It comes pretty naturally. I have never been fired, so that's nice. Not that I'd still be working the same post-college job I had as a dev for much longer than I did. I'm pretty sure I would have been laid off with the next round they did that fall, but I quit when I got married/moved. And the job I have now is really satisfying most of the time. I'd like a little more on the "investigate these things and be really good at them" tasks, but we're often so overloaded with work that I only get to the "investigate these things" part and I don't get that good at them until it's time to move on to something else. I have to learn a little bit of stuff quickly and then my time is up, so I just wish I had more time to dive into these things and understand them better. I would also love it if I didn't have to provide customer service all the time, but that's all jobs. You always have to please someone, either a client or colleagues.

    People problems are the worst. There is no checklist of right or wrong. There is no marker for "you've tried everything you can". There is only the gut which is difficult for me to trust. But when happiness is not obtained after so many attempts/so much time, something must change (and that can be internal or external -- driving myself crazy/accepting my current reality or changing my environment). I think the "gut instincts" can be turned into somewhat logical things, but that's hard to do. Defining whether or not you're happy is a good one. I have to get better at knowing what things make me happy and what things don't. I'm generally fine, but I have realized over time that when I'm "fine" more often than "happy", I become a lot less fine and things start to wear on me resulting in unhappiness. I see my mother being unhappy a lot, and I don't want to be like that.
    I think I'm an ISTP.

    Yes, it can be tough to connec with what makes you happy or you know what makes you happy and you might resist it. I have found that taking some time alone can be quite helpful in figuring things out. Another habit that could be helpful is writing out all of your thoughts, feelings, etc... If we become worried about something and just think about it in our heads, we can train our brain to generate more worry, plus it is hard to figure things out when you do it all in your head. It could be therapeutic, a type of release. Maybe after getting some time alone and emptying your thoughts, some things might become clearer to you. Also, you sound very busy. Maybe one problem you are having in creating some type of solution is taking care of yourself. You love your job, but it is still work. Maybe you need to start up some old hobbies, get into doing something physical, burn some energy. It will help your mind and your mood. Do something that emotionally feeds you. I remember a while back my therapist telling me, wisdom is a combination of heart and mind. Good luck.

    Honestly, I have no idea what I want to do after college, just chose business because it seems fairly versatile.
    I play piano, but to be honest I haven't really practiced ever since I started college.
    Currently I'm working on a novel about a fictional school shooting.
    No problem.
    low-key, no pressure
    just hang with me and my weather

    Job: currently none
    Major: Biology (in second year of bachelors degree)
    Hobbies: Art, cooking/baking, photography, fitness, reading, hiking, being outdoors
    Dream job: I don't know. I'm more interested in family so just an easy job that pays the bills so I can focus on other things once I'm not at work. Or an artist, but I think knowing that I HAVE to create pieces to earn money takes the enjoyment away
