But I'm not completely part of that group. I'm half-way in there with my schedule of programming and gaming, but half of the time I need to pick myself up and keep applying to jobs. It has been a tough few months trying to get experience for software jobs. I had almost given up on applying to software jobs and moving to IT jobs (which isn't worse, but my dream job is in software), but I started thinking about it. Couldn't I just build my experience in whatever job I am doing? I could just spend each day trying to build some kind of software while I am working in another job.
While I was limiting my options to just software jobs, I am now moving towards a wider range of jobs where I can learn and grow inside and outside of the workplace. I will pick myself up and move forward, no matter how far away from my dream job I will be, I will inch my way closer to it. As long as I don't give up, there will always be progress.
And I look forward to it. =)
