The last times

17Aug07

The last times of anything seems to give me tremors of Nostalgia, no matter how much I hated it while I was doing it.

Today was one such day, It was my last day at the student job as web developer which I had taken up for the summer. When I persued it, I was keen I would enjoy it, put in my tid-bits of creativity anywhere I could put. I started loosing when the web-‘designing’ rather transformed into PHP-‘coding’, those lines of code that got stuck at the server, Damn!. And the job was one of those typical 8-5 ones, this is probably the golden age of my life where I considered waking up at 8.30 as ‘late’. I now understand why my seniors keep saying ‘work sucks’.

But at the end of the times, my perspectives change, like today. I will miss thinking colors in Hex values, that ‘yayys’ when the code worked and that anxiety while testing in a new browser. I will miss those little water bottles that got accumulated at the end of the day and while throwing which into the recycle bins, I’d feel as if saving the earth. I will miss switching to that work tab from a movie tab in a split second, when the boss walked by. I will miss talking from cubes and replying sometimes when the other person was on phone actually. I will surely miss that free food and soda cans. I will miss my remote desktop connection from which I punch in and punch out an hour earlier and later than my actual work hours. Ooo wait i haven’t punched out yet.

PS: Sorry wavesnsands, ur tag will be my next post. This had to come out today.

  2. HAHAHA. desi s*ala… 😉 I’m proud of you.
    I luv webdesigning because it stimulates my right brain which is otherwise dominated by the left. Fortunately I stopped myself from learning php, and thank G*d for that.

    And changing tabs is so much fun. 😀

    So, what would be your next job then? Glad that you & Priyank met offline. 🙂 Is it called offline ? *rolling eyes*

    And that was no cheating. I came first.. you have to accept that. 😛
