Getting off my butt and thinking of doing somethin

Sign in to follow this  


Since I've been doing mostly nothing for the past month, taking it easy, and enjoying life on the dole, I felt that it was time to pull myself together, skip hibernation and start looking for jobs.

I also decided to not look for real jobs just yet, and work for the video games industry, or a.k.a. Hell On Earth. Am I crazy?... Everybody around me is asking the same question. Hell, I guess I am. Let's say that I'm just I'm passionate, driven (by my lazyness mostly). Seriously, I don't really see myself doing any other jobs. I'm not exactly a graduate programmer, I hate electronics with a passion only rivaled by my hatred of cats, and as a matter of fact, I LOVE my job. Love coding, I just hate going to work.

Well, I guess I'm crazy then. To prove my point, I'll be spending a week in the UK, doing the Travelling Salesman thing, doing one, possibly two interviews a day, trying to be cool and fit the 'young hip, dynamic, and definitely not a nerd', to secure that darn dream job. Selling myself has never been my forte. I always feel like I'm trying to flog a dead horse. Not exactly the kind of attitude they are seeking.

OK, I've got a confidence problem when faced with intimidating strangers, who are often smaller than me, and female. Not to the point of peeing on myself at interviews, I'll leave that to when I retire.

hey, I guess I finally found my sensitive side here! And I can see where this is going... Better stop before it's too late!
