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’?
