breakfast day

I'm scared. I'm not sure I can even write blog posts anymore. I felt like I didn't want to do it until I was struck off in a new direction and I would say I am now.

Today was breakfast day, a signifier of one's second day of work here at [insert seattle tech company name here which I am not ready to yet disclose publicly]. I am a Web Developer - Java here, and Ben and I are discussing what it's going to take to ramp Roboticat down to something basically historical. We had a great time, and all my training and experience let me get a job I never would have been able to get without a CS degree otherwise.

On breakfast day, they bring breakfast to your cube to lure unsuspecting and hungry employees into introducing themselves to you and playing the game of "what is the least amount of conversation I can make and get away with a goddamn bagel".

Most people I let off the hook pretty easily.
