I'm a stay at home son
I envy you just envy you. I return to the utter insanity of the hell known as Corporate America on Thursday and I've been dreading it since last week. It's just no way to live your life, in a cubicle like a gerbil in a cage, getting jerked around between people playing politics trying to climb the ladder and insane upper management making dumb decisions and screaming how they have to have every new fad NOW or the company will go out of business (we could only wish....).
I just envy you man. I long to escape this place of suffering and torment before I end up as nuts as they are.
To anyone thinking of getting into IT please think long and hard. It really isn't all that. I sure as hell wish I hadn't gotten into it. You will go in all bright eyed and bushy tailed thinking hey you have talent, you can go in and shine, but that's not what it's all about. You're a lot better off kissing their behinds and playing politics and that means WAY more than anything you do in your code. Besides they won't actually LET you do anything out of fear of what you might do, God forbid you actually DID do some coding, who knows what might happen. Don't do it. Just take it from me, a guy who regrets he did it. I started off the same way I couldn't believe they were paying me to do this. Now most days I just long for death to escape it and wonder how much worse could homelessness be. Yep, you'll see if you don't take my word for it.
