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!
