First Day! (short blog post...)

Well... We'll start with the good, first...

It was really awesome to get to program for a living today and it felt good to be productive again.

Now, the bad...

I have a six month probationary period to get through before I'll see any kind of benefits and my health insurance (dental and vision included) is going to cost me $150.00 A WEEK when it kicks in...

So, I guess I'll be looking, seriously, for freelance work and whatnot to try and afford my benefits...

Anyway, I'm VERY happy to have a real job so I'll find a way to deal with the negative bits.

Now, I'm off to eat dinner and study up some on ASP .NET.

Later!!

Glad to hear it went so well, Grant. My day was pretty lousy by comparison - my temp assignment ended and I'm back to looking for work.

I'll try to emulate your inspiring example. ^_^ But I don't think anyone will be hiring me for any programming jobs any time soon.

Focus on the positive, and do your very best... then a little more. Thanks for sharing your first day! ;-)
