The last time I had my glasses break was... seemingly randomly. They just split in two at the bridge for some reason.

Yeah, that's what mine did too -_- gonna be blind for the next two days until I can get contacts. 

Also, what's your job offer you got? c:

Embedded Software Engineer for £30k/a

I guess it's more of a graduate salary, but I don't think they were after graduates specifically, so I just end up with the normal title.

Hey, that's not too shabby! How long is the commute though :o

Yeah no it's not that bad at all! With bonuses it comes to just under £35k, so ~25k after taxes and pension stuff.

Just under 50 minutes off-peak. No idea what it'll be like during rush hour though, but I expect little over an hour. Might take some back roads or something.
I could find my own place somewhere closer, but I'd kinda rather save up a bit of money first, before losing nearly half my salary to renting a place. And I think it would be good to just have a bit of time to plan my finances out a bit first.

That's a rough commute, I hope you can find somewhere closer :c it sucks to lose so much money on rent but after a while it just sucks driving that much everyday. 

My commute is gonna be 40 minutes but I'm carpooling so it won't be too bad, not nearly as bad as yours...

Yup~

The first few weeks on the job are the toughest, so don't feel discouraged if you are completely clueless at times, that's totally normal! ^^

By the same token, don't be afraid to ask for help, even if it's a seemingly basic or trivial thing! They will pretty much expect those types of things to come up and hopefully they assign a specific person to help you out in the beginning.

If your company does code reviews, try to pay attention to what is happening in other people's code reviews, you can learn lots of stuff that will be applicable to you since you'll eventually have to submit something for review yourself.

Try to use existing, working pieces of code as a reference whenever possible; rarely will you ever need to start completely from scratch.

(Maybe I'll think of some others at a later time.)

Thank you! Though it makes me feel like the term "master" is used far too liberally, if even I'm apparently one now >_>'

Thank you~ It wasn't too pleasant having to wear a suit and robes in ~30C, and I was kinda dreading having my parents together, but it all worked out in the end ^_^
