Today was my last day at my job as Senior Web Programmer for St. Petersburg College. I’ve been there 4 years and I’ve resigned so that I can stay at home with Trey while Heidi goes back to school. Working at SPC has been a great experience – I’m coming away from it having learned a lot. Not only did my skills as a programmer grow during my time there but I matured as a “professional.” I have my great colleagues and bosses to thank for that. It is a bit of a leap of faith relying on part-time consulting and contract work for our income, but so far I’ve been blessed with a long line of clients wanting my services (too many in fact!).
As a going-away present, my department gave me two shirts. One for Trey that reads “MY DADDY IS A BETTER PROGRAMMER THAN YOUR DADDY” and one for me that says “Mr. Mom.” You may notice the photo they choose for the front of that t-shirt looks familiar. They stole it from a post on this blog back in January. A reminder that you have to be careful about what you put on the internet.
