Daily Journal – Jul 17, 2017

This is my 104th journal.

Early in the morning, instead of going to work first, I went to ST Electronics to sign my employment contract. I will start my new job on Sept 04, 2017. The contract last two years and I shall see if I like the new job. Maybe it’s irrelevant? Cause having a job is just a means to an end and that is I don’t starve to death and/or end up living on the streets.

Life to me now is all about me spending time doing the things that I enjoy. That means reading, watching shows, gaming, and writing. Software or application development is work and is just a fucking job. As long as at the end of every month or the work I do I get a paycheck, I’m good.

After signing of the contract, I went to work. First thing in the morning was to fix some issues that my colleague encountered with the Kong API Gateway as well as the custom API Management Portal.

Then another colleague and I had a discussion on the SIT issues.

After that, we went for a decently early lunch. Then, three of us made our way to the customer office for a meeting and some discussion.

I left the customer office at around 1745 and made my way home.

Anyway, I have been thinking. If I’m gonna spend majority of my time using Windows to do my work in the future, then I don’t want any Windows machine at home. Unlike most people, I have trouble switching off mentally from work without an actual physical reminder. So I will move my gaming to Mac and PS4. Besides, Apple announced support for external GPU over Thunderbolt 3, it may serve as a compelling platform to do gaming. If not, well, I can always get an iMac pro or a maxed out iMac for my gaming needs. So I think I will dismantle my current Windows PC.

With that, I will continue to play Cities: Skylines.

Here I conclude my journal for today.
