Help! My Brain is Bleeding!

It\’s hard to study two programming languages when they both suck most of my brain juices. On the red corner — Java; on the blue corner — .NET. W00t! It feels like Pacquiao and Morales boxing in my head. I can\’t seem to grasp everything that I do in Java GUI when I turn my back to .NET… and vice versa. What\’s irritating is that I have to learn advance Swing components in Java to make my Java machine problem as interactive as possible. I just can\’t ignore it because I might suffer the consequences later. On the other hand I have to learn more .NET because my group is jumpstarting an ASP.NET 2.0 web app for our thesis. How ironic that my specialization is Java but my thesis is built on .NET. It feels good to be a multilingual programmer but what\’s the point when you can\’t master one? Beats me like hell. Who needs a jack of all trades these days. I certainly have to forfeit one of them later on to raise my standards. Will it be Java or .NET… I don\’t know yet. It\’s a though choice. To make matters worse, I have to continue mastering PHP regardless of Java or .NET because I love open source. Crap… my brain is bleeding! x_x
