Epiphany

I started work Monday, which was full of orientation; Tuesday I got my computer, and I learned my way around an unfamiliar distribution of Linux and got it largely set up for work. Yesterday, I actually started coding, and today, I did a lot more of it, and enjoyed it greatly, even though it's not very interesting code yet.

I think it was yesterday afternoon that I caught myself thinking "I'm really enjoying doing this programming, but I should get back to work." It took me a little to remember that this is actually my assignment, and I'm not supposed to be doing something else, like running or designing another inane group of manual tests I would never be given the chance to automate; this was the actual work at hand.

I am now employed such that my primary job function is work I actually want to do and am qualified for. I am happy about this.
