WDS snuck by on me

Can't believe it's that time of the year again... thank goodness WDS moved a month later or I'd have been up to my eyeballs in crap if it hadn't.

For the first time since I started attending WDS I find myself in a good and happy place. I'm {happy|tired|weary} but I wouldn't trade it for the world right now. As tired as I am right now I'm also excited as I haven't been in a long, long time. My skills continue to improve and polish under a very good manager, one I wish I could continue working for as a full time employee or in as many projects as I can squeeze out of myself.

But that's the thing. I'm less concerned with converting to full time than actually creating and sponging as much as I can. It's the learning experience and the opportunities that it gives me rather than me staying at Google long enough to retire... we'll see where this takes me.

Right now I'm still learning, writing and coding... and flying to London! If everything works ok I'll fly to London early September for work and then again in October for a conference and then to Barcelona for vacation... would have never been able to say that a few years ago
