The Itch

It's taken a year to recover after the damage of my previous job, but it's finally come back.

I want to write software. I'm not too picky about the details. I just want to solve things, engineer things, make something work.

In short, what I most want to spend my time doing is what I'm being paid to do.

I remember this feeling from college, this need-to-solve that got me extra credit through my CS classes because I simply didn't want to stop, this thing that made me get a respectable rating in TopCoder algorithms tournaments, the desire that built all of the decisions I made throughout my education.

It's been too damn long.
