One of these days I'm going to figure out what it is I want to be when I grow up. I'm sure it will happen eventually. If I'm really lucky, it'll happen in time for me to find a job in that field.
I've realized for quite some time now that I really don't want to be a code nerd anymore. If it was the kind of thing where I could sit at a little computer and play with databases all day I'd be so happy. Problem is, it isn't quite like that anymore (I'd say it's not like the old days, but when the 'old days', to me, are only 3 years ago, somehow it loses a bit). There are a lot of other languages I'd need to learn that, quite frankly, I have no interest in learning. Richard's signed up for an online java course and seems to be having a wonderful time learning how to do that kind of thing. I've tried to work up some enthusiasm for myself, but have had no luck. What HTML I know has been used on these pages, and while I do enjoy puttering around on my website, learning how to do something else cool every few weeks, I simply don't know enough to be marketable at it, nor do I really want to know that much.
It's a frustrating situation to be in, especially since I'm currently looking for a new job and not having much success at it. Things that sound appealing are things for which I have absolutely no experience, and what I've got experience in isn't really what anyone is looking for these days....unless I'd be willing to do the 2-3 hour commute at morning and night.
