One advantage of America is that it doesn’t have all the foolish historical baggage behind it that nations of Europe will always carry. For instance, the appreciation for noble blood.
America has always had a keener eye toward merit than any other means of determining worthiness.
You know, if there’s one thing I hate, it’s waiting for food. I don’t care what the food is or how nice the place is—it’s not worth it. I’d rather just leave for Wendy’s or something (at least it’s food). If I weren’t ready to eat, I wouldn’t be at a fricking restaurant! So either feed me or I’ll go eat elsewhere.
I’m really unsure what the heck I want to do with myself in the next few years. At the moment I’m holding on to UTD, hoping the time goes by slowly and that I will have all the answers by the time I am done here (yeah, right).
The issue that is troubling me right now is work. I work for an Austin-based webdesign firm called AO Design. At first I was hired on as a lowly XHTML coder, but I quickly got into more serious programming work, and now I am quite critical to the operation of the company.
