I was in a bad place.
Waking up every morning wondering if my life was really reduced to the 9-5 grind.
I had gone to school, earned a University Degree and I had incorrectly believed that everything else was going to be pretty easy.
How wrong I was.
I got a job in the IT industry programming mainframe computers.
Now let me explain something.
After learning about the latest programming methods and the hottest Internet-based web development programs in a post-degree grad program … programming mainframes every day was like hammering rock with a sledgehammer.
I felt like Fred Flintstone.
I began having nightmares about my life and my future. Waking up sweating in panic. Seriously.
