This is me starting from scratch, as I clearly lost interest in my old blog(s) and they fell along the way of the phonograph(Small round things that when you used a needle on them, they played music or something? :p )
What is new?
Well. For starters, a new theme that I've been tweaking. Going to be a work in progress, but you know that's what life is all about. I originally started this post a few days ago while I was on vacation, but decided that spending more time with the person I was with was much more important.
Note to self, road trips are fun.
Anyways, back on topic. A little short of a year ago, I graduated from the University of Wisconsin -- Stevens Point, with a degree in Web and Digital Media development. Since i graduated, I've been working at the rubber-band-ball place, as a technology supervisor. While this was great experience for the resume, it was exhausting, and just not something that left me happy at the end of the day. I had a short stint going tech support for a phone company in there, but that was even worse. Nothing like having customers calling just to yell at you.
Around February, my brother told me about a web design place that his friend worked at, and that they were looking for a developer. I applied, and got a very quick interview. As part of the interview process, they asked me to design a mock-up for them. Working where I did, I couldn't finish it in the time allowed. It was a major bummer, and I felt pretty crummy that my chance slipped thru my fingers.
In early March, I was blessed to spend a week off of work,(getting paid even) with one of my best friends, and now girl friend. Was very relaxing not having to think about work or anything but having fun. Around the end of the vacation, I got a call from my brother, saying that he had heard they were still looking for someone. I quickly gave their HR person an e-mail, and she sent me a test to do. A few days later, with the test in, I got called in for an interview, and two weeks later I started my job. That day is today.
I have a nice desk, even with a dark picture from my phone, two monitors and even get a window to look out of. I'm not sure how the window will help or hurt with productivity, but it wasn't bad the first day.
I'm hoping now that I have more time, that I can actually use this to share more of my rants and raves about life, and some cool stuff about web design and computers.
