So, I’ve been at work for almost 3 weeks now. It’s quite satisfying, because at the end of the day I feel like I’ve done my fair share to earn my keep.
If anyone’s wondering, I’m working at GH Accessibility, LLC, a company that specializes in converting printed material into accessible formats, be it DAISY, Braille, large print, ETC. My official is “junior programmer,” and right now I’ve mainly been focused on finding bugs in their DAISY reader product. There are also differences between it and FSReader which I’ve commented on to my superiors. Some of them are differences in philosophy (ReadHear encourages self-voicing, FSReader doesn’t), and some of them are already being worked on (Braille display support in ReadHear PC is completely broken).
In addition to my work, I’m taking two online classes – one right now, and one during the second summer session (June 20, I believe). Don’t get me wrong, the last thing I want to do when I get home from work is sit down and listen to a lecture or take an online exam. However, once I’ve finished these two classes, I’ll be done with college forever!
That’s what’s been going on in my life lately, work, class, and no social life (except for the concert I went to on May 29, that was awesome). I’ll try to update as time goes on, but who knows if I’ll have the time or energy.
