GeneralWhy I'm A Programmer PinmemberMehGerbil9-Nov-12 3:53 
I've been a bit discouraged with my career this week. I reached a point where I'd finished up some things and wasn't inclined to jump into the next project. I was kind of wrapped up in a malaise that I couldn't shake. This had nothing to do with where I work as the conditions are wonderful and the pay is more than I'm worth.
 
Then this morning I picked up a bit of work - a modification to a project I'd done a year ago - and I found a terrible, twisty, nasty little problem that I need to figure out. It isn't so difficult that I won't get it solved today, round about 5:00 I wager.
 
Now I'm happy again.
 
I think I like figuring out little problems.
I'm happiest when I'm looking at my screen and thinking what the elephant am I gonna do about this mess?
