At times I have felt like an imposter and I have loathed my job. At other times I was so excited to go to work or to program something outside of work. I want my next job to be one that I love going to every day, so it makes sense to try to figure out what I will love based on the past. I wrote down a timeline and made notes about the things I liked and didn’t like. And I looked for patterns.
It turns out that I love:
- Making visual interactive apps
- Working on my own thing
- Teaching others
- Building things or individual consumers, not large businesses
That is why I’m studying to become an iOS developer. It’s visual and interactive. I can make my own apps. And I can teach others as I learn.
