Much Needed Update...
Sorry for the long haitus I've taken from blogging, guys. I guess it doesn't really matter since nobody reads my blog
Man... This new job is really taking me for a loop. Right now, the only way I can survive without seriously considering other alternatives is to take it a day at a time. This in no way
should suggest to anyone that I think I should be anywhere but exactly where I am, but rather, should suggest to you that, due to the environments of my other employments, I have gotten somewhat lazy.
I haven't been in a school-type environment since 2003, and since then, I've just been slowly developing a very comfortable framework with which I have become extremely efficient at programming. The last 3 jobs I've had didn't require me to learn anything else, so, during the past 3 years, I've just done my thing, and been happy with it.
This new opportunity is difficult on many levels, but most difficult, by far, in that I feel I need to be performing at a high level, despite my not being very familiar with the complete Object Oriented Programming style employed here. I feel I am doing very well, all things considered, but everyone around me seems to be getting the hang of things much, much quicker.
One thing I will do is keep pounding away at it. I won't quit. I feel I need to be doing what I'm doing, and learning what I'm learning, exactly where I am right now, and though it is discouraging at times, I'll be darned if I let thoughts of even slowing down linger for more than 2 seconds. I've been given a killer opportunity here, and it's time I got back on the the crazy train and kicked some OO-PHP bootie!
Other than that, life has been pretty normal.
Oh yeah.. Plan B, one of the bands I'm in now, had 4 shows recently. I really enjoy playing with those guys...
Anyway... I've gotta get home now. Ta-ta!
