    Hello :D

    I graduated 2 years ago in BSc Business Information Technology and been working as a software tester. It's such a competitive market out there, there are so many Computer Science graduates fighting for the programming jobs and I don't stand a chance against them. I'm not geeky enough. So that was why I took the easier option and went down the software testing route. But I do want a programming job! I want to challenge myself, so I'm going to study the MCAD in VB.Net. Hopefully it'll improve my chances of getting into software development.

    I've been having a bit of a quarter life crisis. My friends are happy with their jobs, whereas I feel like I'm just drifting along, dunno what I'm doing, I'm getting old and soon it'll be too late. Hehe, that's me being depressing :p

    But now I feel focused. I'm gona get my MCAD qualifications. If things don't work out and I can't get into programming, I always have my software testing experience to fall back on. It's not that I hate testing, it's just not that interesting/challenging compared to coding.

    I'm really looking forward to the exams. I love exams!! Now that I'm not a student anymore, I really miss cramming facts into my head and taking exams. (I'm not strange am I? :p )
