Some days I love my job and some days I tolerate it. If I wasn’t getting paid to write software, I would still do it for fun. I wouldn’t, however, choose the same projects. It is hard to complain when you get to work from home doing something you really enjoy, but I make the effort sometimes anyway. ;) I guess I love my job the best when I am learning new skills and building interesting systems. I like it the least when I am beating my head against the wall trying to support systems that should just be replaced.

One of the big draws of woodworking, though, is the physicality of it. After spending so many years building things with no real physical existence, it is great to work on something I can hold in my hands.
