End of career #1
Today is officially the last day I will be an IT professional. Starting tomorrow (well, really next week) I’m a full time educator and part time assistant adult hockey league director. Of course the topics that I’m teaching are IT related, specifically software engineering and graphics programming, but I won’t be doing it full time anymore. This is both refreshing and terrifying. I’ve been doing IT pretty much straight through since I got my first job at 17 helping build out a startup ISP. Now I get to change gears. Instead of tech being what pays the bills, tech gets to go back to stuff I do for fun, which I’m hoping will mean that I make progress on the many stalled projects I’ve had going for weeks/months/years. I’m not sure what career #2 is going to turn into but I’m sure tech will sill be there, hanging around as it’s been all my life.
