A good day programming today

This week for me, wow, a big week.

I had a technical interview on Monday. My first ever. Smart engineers looking over my shoulder as I try to prove that I know JavaScript by coding some stuff on a whiteboard and on paper. Super stressful and ultimately amazing experience.

Tuesday evening, I’m offered a job as a “Front End Developer” writing JavaScript, full time, for money. Something I’ve worked really hard for and dreamt of for I don’t even know how long.

Wednesday I accept the offer, sign on the dotted line and BAM! I am a professional developer. Also, it happens to be my 35th birthday.

Thursday, today, I put in my two weeks notice and resign from my current job as non-developer, which I’ve had for 7 years — what?! 7 years?! Yes, 7 years.

I’ve been a developer for a while, but now I am a professional developer and I get to write code for money.

First day is Dec. 3. Can’t wait.

Wow.
