So he’s a software engineer right now at a pretty well known company. He’s frustrated and not adapting well to America. He’s been handed a project that if there’s a mistake would cost them billions of dollars and so he’s under stress. He’s looking to apply at Facebook so he could work in France. I just want to see him happy, even though the thought of losing another friend to overseas makes me feel sad.
We caught up last weekend. In the 2-3yrs I’ve known him, he’s stayed the same. He lays out his financial calculation on his desk so I actually know how much he have saved up and invested – six digits, of course.
He’s frugal and leaves way below his means. Complains about the prices. He does this as if he were me!
I feel awful that maybe his coworkers don’t like him in the way they screwed him over when it came to handing him over the project that they started off with but actually finished nothing.
Oh Benjamin, I hope you find happiness one day.
