Well, I’ve been home for a few days now, had a good weekend spending time with Joelle and my family. Joelle and I went shopping on Friday night and I spent entirely way too much money on clothes for work (some of which was funded by generous donations from my parents… thanks for that $0.63 gift card ). Joelle’s birthday extravaganza took place on Saturday. We had spaghetti for dinner and cookie cake and ice cream for dessert.
Then Monday came and I started my job. As I understand it, I’m going to be doing some web development using Java Server Pages for possibly two different applications. At this point I’m trying to wrap my head around the structure of the application and the way the different pieces of hardware and software interact. I think I’m going to enjoy what I’m doing, but that remains to be seen.
As far as I know, I’m going to be working Monday – Thursday all through the summer and fall, hopefully maxing out my hours right before Christmas. My intentions are to save the majority of what I make so that Joelle and I will have some money to work with when we get married.
Completely off-topic: Android winners were not announced yesterday, as was originally stated. Word on the street (if by street you mean internet) is that the judges final scores for the top 100 applications are due tomorrow (the 7th). Hopefully they’ll all be on time and we’ll find out by Thursday who the 50 winners are.
I guess that’s all for now. I should probably try to find something to do that justifies my hourly pay rate.
