Learning New Things
There is too many things I learned while I was there - too many to list here(two years is a long time). But lately I am finding that instead of helping me to learn new things, my work is negatively affecting my ability to learn new stuff. A lack of time is the formost problem. I have reached the conclusion that the only way to learn new things is to lose the job - and that is exactly what I did.
I have a huge list of stuff to learn - which includes - but not limited to...
So, expect some posts about these subjects here.
Getting Things Done
I have a lot of entries in my ToDo List - things I never had time for before. Time to get them done. Stuff like...
- Release a stable version of Nexty
- Finish the Ruby on Rails app
- Integerate OpenID into Bin-Co.com and OpenJS.com
- Write a lot of content
With all this free time, I should be able to produce more content. So expect a jump in the frequency of posts in this blog and my other sites. Maybe even a new site.
I have a decent income from Google AdSense. I also have a couple of other revenue streams. So I am not looking at freelance projects right now. Maybe after a few months.
In short, I had a great time at Reubro. I met a lot of great guys. I learned a lot. And I understood that Corporate life is not for me. And like many others, I chose unemployment over working at a company.
Oh, and by the way, the 'official reason' for leaving is 'Excessive Eye Strain'. Happens if you spent over 15 hours a day staring at a monitor.
So, what do you think of my decision? Good? Bad? Stupid? Leave a comment and let me know.
