Persistance is the key
I am back to the swing of things you might say. I have spent my summer re-discovering my passion and what I love to do. I love making web applications. Simple as that. I love programming for the web. I love using my knowledge and tackling difficult situations. The worse part is trial and error, but what can I do when pixels don’t line up properly in different browsers? It drives me insane! Cup of water and persistance is the key.
I am highly persistant. It drives some people off the wall, but I have to. It’s a trait that I have developed, because I am in a profession that requires me to not give up.
I used to teach, but I don’t want to. I was offered two teaching positions at Fanshawe College in the Health Sciences and Information Technology departments. I turned them down because they were during the day, and I don’t want to stand in front of a crowd and tell them this is how technology works.
You’de be surprised to know that not many are tech savvy. Though, they are always on Facebook, but that is not considered being a technology guru. They are drawn to the lives of others. Some people are not interesting at all. Not even their photos. Take me for example. I barely use Facebook. If I do, like post a picture, then I get a crowd liking and commenting. Do they care about the picture, or just seeing me active once in a blue moon?
Enough of Facebook, web application design, and teaching. I am pleased to say that I work currently from home. It is easier, and I get a lot more work done. I have my super large office room that I shared on Twitter, and I have access to everything. I feel lonely sometimes, but I chose this way to be more efficient.
Working for a small business requires you to be on top of your game. I can also do other contract work in the evening. 😀 I am busy, but I can handle several projects at a time.
