I got myself a dream client! The kind that finishes one contract happily and enthusiastically comes back with an idea for a follow-up project. Today, after 5 websites/webapps and thinking I've exhausted their options, I was asked to meet them and... turns out they're referring me to their sister company. Awww yeah.
Things just work out when you wait and do things passionately. This first organization was a nonprofit and they had a tiny budget for their first project, but I took it anyway and still pushed for perfection, and their budget exploded after that project became a success. I started out in shambles about contracts and timetables, but we all stuck to the plan and worked things out.
I feel weird as a web developer/designer. I get paid to do something that I'd probably be doing anyway if I weren't. A world where your portfolio outshines your degree and your passion outshines your experience. Thank you, internet.
In Minecraft, I use the username Rirez.
