Well, this morning, I signed a 4 month evaluation contract! Yay! It toke them long enough to get to this point but I think they were stalling so I would start in Jan, rather then Dec. But I am sooo relieved! Yay! Yay! and double Yay! or is that triple Yay? Heck, counting the initial Yay it could allready be the 4th...and then again, I have just said Yay again a couple of more times...hmmm... suffice it to say Yay!
The current position is just becoming too much for me to handle with a straight face and with a cool composure. I am a perfectionist in a weird way... When it comes to coding, I don't like making compromises, doing guess work or having to remember every single place that code was duplicated due to lazy/bad/poor programming, planning and documentation. What's more, is I don't like the mentallity that some software houses tend to have, but I don't want to go into that, lest I jinx my self and the next company turns out to be just as bad/rotten.
I am not going to be running around looking for the impossible "perfect" job, but there is a lot of things I just won't comprimise on and I want to get as close to "happy" in a job as I can get... After all, even tho I feel old as heck, I have to work at the company for as long as I am able to and I am still young. Getting home miserable, irretated and annoyed by bad bussiness policies and poor standards, is not my idea of living. We spend so much time at work and I feel a strong urge to be able to say that I take pride in my work and my code... and not that I feel proud about swindling some poor sap out of his hard-earned cash by selling him substandard products.
Now the only hangup is breaking the bad news to my current boss. I don't have anything against the Company or the people that work there...just the way that they work.
At any rate, this is me saying YAY! With a somewhat more upbeat post for a change... go figure!
