I get to work fairly early (6 a.m.), I just wake up early. I work all day and at the end of the day I am frustrated. Not overly so, I think its a normal amount. I am frustrated at the technical debt that my company is paying off, I am frustrated that sometimes I feel like I am adding to it, I am frustrated that we had a free company lunch on the day that the cafeteria had "cubano" sandwiches. Yeah, I missed out on a sandwich with two types of ham. TWO!
So when I get home, I want to relax, I want to accomplish something, I want to contribute. So, like many developers I have a pet project that I work on in my free time. The nature of the project we can discuss in a future post, but in short, I collect every bit of digital data about my life and I store it. Every. Bit. Its a fantastic challenge and oddly rewarding. I found some weird patterns in my life.
