Don’t talk about my work much here… you should be glad about this. That said…

There are times when i wish the process wasn’t:

  • write new code
  • get surprising results
  • doubt code
  • check data / configuration
  • descend into a pit of hopelessness and despair
  • climb out of pit and describe discovery, only to get treated like a leper for turning over rocks and finding creepy crawlies
  • write more code / SQL to fix the data / configuration

Repeat to fade.

Sometimes it feels like it would be better to just give up and open a pig farm / abattoir… then i remember how much better this is than what i could be doing and repent.

Is this what they mean by ‘cycle of abuse’?
