You said your a software engineer, that's what I studied as well.

It seems to me that when people ask me what I do for a living, people typically are impressed for some reason. I wonder if you get the same attitude from other people?
Yeah, even doctors seemed impressed when I told them I was a software engineer. That didn't really affect my self-esteem, though, because of all the interpersonal problems I was having at work. I felt like a failure.

Nobody loves me but my dog, and I think he might be jivin', too.
