There are about a million things I feel like I could be doing to prepare myself for employment. Unfortunately, I am considering so many divergent paths that’s there’s no real good way to get them to feed into each other. I get the most immediate feedback from tyoing around with this blog, but I know that I’m probably get the most financial return from studying massive amounts of C++, and probably the most brain workout as well. It seems like if i want to go anywhere as a serious programmer, I need to start learning some hardcore Python. I still tinker around with LaTeX because I find it calming and I’m occasionally helping my past employers, and everyone’s telling me to do something different. But hey, I’m just going to keep doing what’s fun and rewarding.
