horribleness

I kid you not, one of my professors assigned a paper last night. Yes. It's due Wednesday. He says it was on the sylabus, a little random line about how graduate students would have to write a paper on a chosen topic, because the people who accredit the program need to see evidence that in classes available to both graduate and undergrad students, the grad students do more work. The way he said it I don't event think he's going to read it.

So yeah, it's 4-5 pages, and we get to chose the topic (which is almost worse, it's so vague) so I can probably pound this out in an afternoon. but seriously, it's one more damn thing that will take away from much-needed time studying for my impossible probability final. teachers are freaking nuts.

I've decided to write about microprocessor architecture to support simultaneous multi-threading, in case anybody here is into that. or wants to write a paper for me.

and I'm sort of in a bad mood, so here's an unrelated question: when judging someone's relationship, which we all know you do so don't even act like you don't, who pisses you off more:

1) Person A, who stays in a relationship expecting person B to change, with every intention of becoming an overbearing nag to pound person B into someone A wants to be with if it takes forever.

2) Person B, who's too wussy or lazy to leave a relationship where A will obviously never be happy with who B is, and who won't change because they don't value A's opinion enough to consider it anyway.

Person A.

The phrase 'impossible probability' made me smile :)

I'm human. Of course I judge. That's what people do.

People who think that we shouldn't judge others are delusional. (Although there's a difference between judging and being judgemental.)

Person A. Never expect anything from anyone. Makes life a hell of a lot easier.

person B because it's their fault the relationship sucks anyway. why be in one if youre not going to care enough about the other person's opinions at all?

A. A really bugs me, B I find more forgivable.

I know a person B, and it's hard to watch them. But person A types aren't much better.

So, 2.

And yeah, I'm busy judging a train wreck these days.

B annoys me more, but A is more often the cause of the problem.

Person B is obviously too lazy and uncaring to work on the relationship. However, they are at least comfortable enough with the status quo (and with themselves) to leave things as they are.

Person A is being completely unreasonable, and will make everyone's life miserable in the long run. They are clearly not happy and not comfortable with the status quo, but they're too stubborn to just dump Person B. Yes, people can change, but if Person B has repeatedly shown that there's no bloody chance of that, then it's time to cut the dead weight and find someone better.

While they are both "at fault" in the relationship, Person A bugs the crap out of me. They need to just let it go and move on.

I was person B, my wife is person A. So why do I feel guilty for ending it?

Person B
Definitely person B. because it is a matter of B willing to change in order to benefit both B's and A's lives
