The first few days of the rest of my life
— In April 2010, I arrived for my first day of work at a local utility company, ready to begin what was supposed to be a nine-month contract to upgrade a Blackberry app. This past week, nearly ten years later, I finally said goodbye. It was quite a good run, professionally speaking. While it had its ups and downs, I’d do it all over again. Personally, though, it was time for a break.
