Earlier last month I ended up landing a job with a consulting firm in a city next to mine, and have been working for them as a contracted web designer. Needless to say, I’ve been in love with this job. For the first time in my life, I’m actually doing something that I love and actually want to do.
I’m not standing around helping customers with what computer best suits their needs, or selling them Geek Squad services. I’m not wasting my knowledge by ringing up mindless customers with their large Mocha with skim, lite whip, extra chocolate shavings. I am designing websites for businesses. And it feels fantastic.
Right now I’m just putting some last minute touches on my first solo design project for them. Just cleaning up some minor issues, and changing a few things to include some new additions that I got this morning. And you know where I’m doing this? All from home. I haven’t worked from home most of the days–there were some days that I went into the office and worked there. It’s nice because I’ll bring my laptop to the office, and it’s been nice and quiet, cool and dark in there. Perfect for getting a lot of work done.
I’m going up there later on to get my first paycheck, and it’ll be a nice one since I also got a bonus for being the sole designer for the site. Pretty fantastic, that’s for damned sure. Needless to say, I’ve been hit with more creativity because of this, so much that I’ve been working on new designs for Holdfire Network, MyWHMCS, and a quick one I put up for Project Cloverfield.com.
Enough chattering away, time to get finished on this site!
