Nothing like unloading all of the pent up emotions you have about being stuck in a job you hate to a former flame that is halfway around the world living their dream. Also, just letting loose about the fact that you’ve been really unhappy for the past 3 years and don’t know if going to grad school and changing your career path will even help. Also also, coming to these realizations in your cubicle over gchat and trying to keep it together and not completely have a meltdown. Ugh.
At least he was cool about it. Thanks dude.
