OK, sorry for the absence of blogging. I have a little breathing room to reintroduce the discipline of writing this blog, so let’s jump straight into it. I will probably bundle these into a larger post at some point, but I’m going to start sharing more lessons I’ve learned during the past three months with the Iron Yard as well as what I’m learning on the job hunt.
I’m in an odd position where I have an actual skill people will want to pay me to use and I’m not attached to any specific location. I plan on looking at most of the major cities in the U.S. and possibly outside of the country as well, but honestly any city that has a couch I can crash on for a few days while I get an apartment will draw my attention haha. It’s going to be an interesting ride, that’s for sure.
But for now, I’m filling in the gaps from the last three months. The pace was incredible and I’m sure I’ll be well prepared for any situation I’m thrown in when I start working full time. In the meantime, I’m polishing projects and soliciting new work so I can add to my portfolio. It feels weird to not be building something or adding value to a project, and I really like that it feels weird. I hope this mentality sticks with me for the next few decades, because I can’t wait to see where this takes me.
