Sad and blue


I'm blue.  And not only that, I seem to suffer from writer's block. If there's something like "code-writer's block", I probably suffer from that, too (I believe there is, there was just no Stephen King to write a few horror books about it so far .... something I can consider doing when I retire).

I no longer feel the sense of accomplishment from the things I'm working on and I'm unhappy with the way where something I was always doing with passion (ie. YaST hacking) is heading. The fact that I can do absolutely nothing to change that further deepens my blues.

Most of the time, I tend to be the one trying to cheer up my colleagues and friends when they write blogposts like this by writing encouraging comments or pasting links to some feel-good stuff (my favourite one).  Unfortunately, I can't do the same now for myself. Oh well ...

Green! :-)
Hi! Hey, sad moments come and go, but your work on YaST and openSUSE is great and very appreciated, so don't become blue, stay green.

Don't tell anyone but Geeko does not like to be blue! :-)

Yast is one of the reasons I choose to use SUSE. So thanks for your work. Maybe this french prankster will cheer you up:

Quarterlife crisis
Well, Surprisingly, Personally I'm also going through a similar situation right now (or rather for few months now) and could relate to your tone. I did some extensive pointless browsing on this and found a decent explanation for these issues - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quarter-life_crisis. I wish you a faster recovery.

Supportive hugs from Bluebear
Poor bubli, I exactly know how you feel. In fact, I am probably in a very similar mood right now. :-(

I think this is due to this horrible winter; it has truly devastating effects on people. Lots of colleagues and friends are complaining about feelings of sadness and hopelessness; even physical illnesses are more frequent.

We have to survive the next few weeks. The spring will come and everything will be better - for those who will still be alive; so we should try to be among them. I keep fingers crossed for you.

Take care, Bluebear

Ale Katko, co tak smutně?
Smutný bych měl být asi já - ale mně připadne každé smutnění nakonec srandovní. Už jsem holt takovej. KK
