Life is Good
Just over a year ago this blog was a big part of my life. I was in a transition period and had quite a bit of free time on my hands. I was pumping out 2-3 posts per day and was starting to get a steady stream of readers. Then opportunity knocked and I opened the door.
I landed a job at a web-hosting company. It wasn’t just any job — it turned out to be one of the best things in my life thus far. I work with a small group of extremely talented people whose combined knowledge could overload a supercomputer. I have superiors but they do not make me feel inferior. I not only get to come up with ideas but implement them. I spend most of my time dealing with server related issues but my input in many areas of the company is respected.
I have the joy of getting paid to “play” with computers, help customers avoid certain web disaster, become a Linux guru and, with the help of my co-workers, learn the skills it takes to be a damn fine system engineer.
I hope anyone who reads this has the opportunity, at least once in their life, to truly enjoy their career. There is nothing better in life than enjoying what you do for a living.
