Over the past six months, I’ve discovered that I suck working in open floor plan environments, that results-oriented is a double-edged sword, and that I really need to find work that I’m really passionate about. Way too many photos from the co-op term; about half way through I gave up trying to manage / upload them to Facebook, let alone to this blog. I don’t think flickr is the answer, but I’m not sure what is, since I don’t personally own a Mac (== no iPhoto).
