I'm still at work, and I don't even know when I'll be able to leave.

I didn't even mind that much until 30 seconds ago when I realized that I had failed to take into account something which affects a short pipe run. Not a big deal if I had caught it -- heck, even a few hours ago.  Now I have to run through my calculations again and figure out how much this changes things.  The piping design is already done, the profiles are already done and plotted . . . this sucks.

I don't know if I'm cut out to be an engineer.  There are just too many little things to remember.  I always forget at least one.

I'm tired.

I don't know a thing about engineering but
dude, aren't you young and still a bit new to the field?

cut yourself some slack. I'll bet even the seasoned players aren't perfect. you're probably all kinds of fucking brilliant if you even got to where you are now.

I never mentioned this to you, I don't think, but I always wondered what it would be like if a civil engineer had manic depression. Like if the city he/she designed was just a sprawling land full of half finished projects, i.e. bridge that is only takes you halfway across the river before an abrupt drop.
