Work sucked today

If I had to write up something about why I should get paid for the hours that I worked today, I would mention the fact that I proofread coding in the databases at work, the fact that I was triple-checking the coding done by two people who graduated from a school with degrees in computer science and should actually know how to spell things like “ejection” and “pressure” and “temperature”. I’ve been working on this project since May, on and off (but lately it’s been on), and while I realize that I’ve contributed data collection and super-proofreading skills… My little baby’s not ready to be out and about and being used (it’s a program). Mostly because people fail and can’t spell and things don’t print properly.

It’s been an incredibly long work day… I literally spent my entire afternoon looking at coding. Talk about learning on the job…

How was your Tuesday today? Do anything exciting?

    That’s why I don’t really like working in groups; then I have to make up for everybody else’s mistakes. XP

    Um… I talked to an adviser at the college I’ll be attending today and discovered that I earned 51 credits for it while in high school, so if I plan things right, I only need 3 quarters to get my AA. :) And then I have no idea where I want to go and what I want to do after that, lol.

    By the way… I’ve been interested in coding, but suck at learning it from books. XP Woul you say that it’s hard?

    It’s just sad when people who have studied this for years and earned degrees still don’t know what they’re doing. *shakes head*
    But it does say something about your skills when you are better than they are! 😀

    My Tuesday was pretty good; I had a super girly craving, so I played around with my makeup for a bit and played with my hair. I was quite pleased with the results, haha. ^^ And then I went on another bike ride with a friend, since we’re both trying to get in shape. 😀

    Oh! And I have the 12.1 Sony Cybershot in silver. 😀 I forgot to add that to the end of my other comment, haha.

    Ouch. Doesn’t sound like fun. Sorry you had such a crappy day. Mine wasn’t too entertaining either. I worked, I went shopping, I browsed the internet, and I fell asleep.

    As the wonders of basic spelling make the world a better place. I’m sorry you had to deal with all of the proofreading. As my Tuesday was pretty boring and my Wednesday hasn’t been too different.

    Tuesday was boring as hell, just painted some doors. Today (wednesday) was quite fun, i baked cookies! Though they merged together whilst in the oven, but they still taste yum :)
