Hello, my name is Corinne. And I am a sporadic blogger…

Life gets busy. Or sometimes it’s not busy enough to share. Or maybe just writing for the sake of writing doesn’t seem to be enough of an incentive to turn off Doctor Who and turn on the laptop (to be honest, the laptop is always on, but maybe that’s another problem for another day).

Lately however, I’ve been going through some interesting thoughts, or at least I find them interesting enough that I would like to share them with you. My sporadic reader.

I’m a Web Developer. However I haven’t worked in over a year. It’s not because I finally achieved Start-Up Utopia and have sold off a business for millions of dollars. I had a baby. Well actually I had two. Twins. All I’ll say of them here is they are a boy and a girl and they are “incredibly freaking cute”. I put this in quotes not because it’s only a mother’s point of view. Strangers will stop us and tell us our kids are incredibly freaking cute. However, unless we are friends on Facebook or you attend the same Pilates class I go to, you won’t see them here. I have an honest perspective of the Digital Age, however I’ll do what I can to control who views these little bundles of joy.

But I’m not here to brag about my kids. I’m here to chronicle, hopefully less sporadically, my journal back to awesomeness. I’m a Ruby on Rails Engineer. I can be effective, however, right now I am not. Getting laid off at 4 months pregnant and taking 10 months to raise them has done nothing but lapse my skill set. Sure I could be reading up on the latest authentication gem, but honestly I’d rather be teaching my kids to walk.

Don’t get me wrong. I still love to geek out. I’ve been doing so the past few weeks by learning Swift via a Udemy course while sitting in the local library (kids are too distracting to do this from home). And I have great ideas on start-ups which I’d love to follow through with, both fitness related so if you are interested, contact me. But interviewing at a company right now is slightly annoying because I know the solution from a high level, but implementing it takes some time. And it might not be the most optimized solution, but to be honest, I’m in a bit of a bubble here.

So here I go, retraining myself in a field I thoroughly enjoy but haven’t found the right fit for yet. Because frankly, I’m being very picky as well. Who wants to do a long commute every day when there are much better ways to be spending one’s time? And this next job can’t just be “a job”, I’ve done that. My soul has been sucked and it didn’t feel good.

Time to work my ass off to find the best place to park it.
