So basically the whole Military decision has been going to shit. I wanted to be in the Army and that didn’t work out. I tried to get in the Marines and that didn’t work out. They told me that no Infantry slots will be open until October. So what it comes down to is, being color blind sucks.
Having being denied what I wanted to do Military wise, I have been doing a lot of thinking. I currently work as a webmaster. What is a webmaster? Basically I fix code, write code, and update code. I get to work with various programming languages such as PHP, ASP (VB.NET), and Perl. I also work on many websites and not just one. Seeing that I work on many sites and various programming languages, it tends to keep the job fun.
Do I like what I do? I most definitely like what I do. I don’t have to get up early and get to work by 8am like my last job. I usually show up between 10-11am. As long as I put in my 8 hours and are getting my assignments done, the company isn’t strict on when you come in. How are the people I work with? The people I work with are a lot of fun. We all talk through instant messangers and help each other out when needed. On Tuesdays and Thursdays we play ultimate frisbee for about an hour which is great. It’s a lot of fun and basically my only cardio for the week.
So what am I gonna do? I like what I’m doing now, and do enjoy coding a lot. I am deciding to put the Military on hold, and work hard at my current job. I have a bunch of PHP OOP (Object Oriented Programming) and Design books that I’m gonna start reading up on. I also have created a MT (Movable Type) website to practice with which is located at Tullyr.com.
