I am a software programmer. Not a glamorous job, but I love to write code, and a steady salary helps to get us closer to the beach!
As any IT professional knows, IT is usually a feast or famine situation. There are some times that are so very busy you can barely think of anything but work. These times cause me to start dreaming in code. Very weird, dreaming in code.
Other times are down times. Times where there is little to nothing to do. Where you surf the internet, read other blogs, keep up with the latest IT advances. I am at the office, I just don’t have work to do.
The work day seems so much longer when I don’t have much to do. Boredom is exhausting! I feel more tired from not using my brain that I do from using it.
All in all, I think I prefer the feast!
