Pressure
« on: April 21, 2006, 04:09:41 pm »
Instead of spamming this forum i should actually be working. Our company (www.skanska.co.uk) has very recently won a contract for a multi million pound specialisation ground stabalisation project.

This project is going to be run on the program i'm designing for the company as apart of my 1 year in industry with university.

That means that my program will decide the fate of this multi million pound project and i have a month to finish it in (Been doing it since November and i'm about 60% through and its as watertight as a sive.).

No pressure.

Ever been in a pressured situation?

Is that a royal "My"?

In that case I'm in a similar position. I'm on the build team for the newest version of our main product that's being shipped for testing by one of our biggest customers within a month. The contract is a multi-million pound contract, and it's with a high profile customer. Very high profile. Like everyone knows them high profile :-)

"Becky" is working on his own little poncey help application at the moment, which he's enjoying because his work involves Java and he's working alone. Which is his sort of thing, really :P


But yeah, the gist of it is that I'm part of a small team working on their own scripts that come together to make a patch that is going out to a really important customer. I'm also writing the release notes that goes out to said customer. So yeah, pressure's on. Wheee....

... what the hell do you people do?

I hate business pages that tell you everything but what the company actually does.
That's the problem with heroes, really. Their only purpose in life is to thwart others. They make no plans, develop no strategies. They react instead of act. Without villains, heroes would stagnate. Without heroes, villains would be running the world. Heroes have morals. Villains have work ethic.

And you needed a fancy web page to tell me that?

I try to avoid them. The only time I'm in them usually involves women (the bastards)

I know i will.


Fuck, i can hardly believe i got placed, it feels like my future is finally falling in place.

I never knew what i was going to become or what i was going to be like.
I always wated to do something with music, or footage, lights..
When i signed up and took the test i knew for sure i had 90 % of the questions answered correct.
Its was quite easy, most were thinks i already knew and stuff.
But even when i left, i had the feeling like i wasn't going to make it.

On the next weeks, i wondered what if i'm not going to make it ?
What if i get a letter saying im not good enough ?!

Wait a year and retry..
Join the army... (wich was i going to do if i didn't pass.)
Study photography...

These things just made me feel fucked up everyday, the choices were so different and i only wanted one thing.

Im so glad i got placed.
