Workin’ hard

Bee Birth 1 by Max Westby

So, I was updating events and going through people submission on the VegasTech site, doing maintenance (uh, changes) on the /usr/lib classification, and almost completely forgot to create a blog post for NaBloPoMo!

The thing is that I enjoy doing those things. Someone asked me today how contributing to those things doesn’t seem like work. It’s the passion and the knowing that it helps someone that keeps me going until midnight (or beyond) on maintaining them. If you really enjoy something, it isn’t the drudgery of work on which you focus, it’s the pleasure of doing it that drives you.

Besides, who ever said that work couldn’t be fun?
