Jobs designing systems?

New career sought: designing and analyzing complicated systems; designs that will get made (but not by me) and aren't just in computer-land -- with variety and some independence while working. I'm essentially an ex-academic looking for something "alternative", as they say. I just don't know what jobs are out there. [more inside]

Buffalo University: Where to stay?

Looking for good, cheap accommodation in Buffalo, NY. My partner is visiting to work at Buffalo Uni for about 7 days in late September. They've offered to organise accommodation in a Holiday Inn at $98 a night. This feels a little steep. We'd like to shop around a bit, perhaps look at alternatives other than a hotel/motel. Perhaps a student "sleep in my spare room" scheme or something. Advice much appreciated. [more inside]

Advice for a university drop-out

I'm stuck at a sort of quarter-life crisis/crossroads here. I was kicked out of an Ontarian university almost 2 years ago, and after two (failed) attempts to get re-admitted, learnt that my chances to get in are kinda slim. Since my withdrawal, I've been thinking about some very tough questions but am unable to solve them or come to a conclusion. [more inside]

"A good marriage is where both people feel like they're getting the better end of the deal."

Two of my best friends are getting married (to one another!) and I'm putting together a book of letters, photos, advice, poems, etc. from everyone invited to the wedding. A lot of what I've found are love poems and vows written in the first person about how much the speaker loves the intended, which might feel a bit weird coming from the wedding guests. I'm looking for more general advicey-type stuff, about marriage as an institution or love in the abstract. Funny or serious; the couple are extremely happy together and have great senses of humor.

So I'm gonna surf. What do I need to know?

I want to take up surfing. I live by the sea (for the first time in my life) and I used to skateboard as a teenager, so it seems a good choice of hobby for a fat woman approaching the mid-life crisis and wanting both fun and exercise. What do I need to know? Can I just get a cheap 2ndhand board and a massive wetsuit and go for it? Or should I take lessons? What sort of board should a starter surfer get? Tell me all about the fun of riding the waves...

what should I ask my doctor?

What should I use my Doctor's Appointment to talk about? It seems like all my problems have gotten better between when I scheduled it (three weeks ago) and today. The appointment is on Monday. Look inside to see some of my ailments and tell me if you think I should bring any/all of them up to my Doctor. Note: if I can't come up with a good reason, I'll cancel the appointment because I only am allowed a few a year by my "insurance" :$ [more inside]

Can you suggest resources for a cancer survivor who works with cancer patients?

My SO is a speech therapist/speech pathologist at a major hospital, and her department specializes in cancer patients. This can take a quite a toll on her, but the impact has worsened following her own skin cancer diagnosis last year. I was wondering if there were any books, websites, programs or resources designed to help healthcare providers deal with working with these kinds of cases, and perhaps also ones to deal with dealing with cancer diagnoses.
