Q : Retirement Day? Whatâ€™s up?
A : Yes.. I will no longer be a freelance programmer starting next few days.
Q : Whatâ€™s wrong?
A : Actually, there are several reasonsâ€¦
Q : would you please tell me why..?
A : okay then, Iâ€™ll tell you why..
Q : So, why? You love programming since few years ago, right?
A : yes, I do love programming, but I have to leave this programming world for few years.
Q : well.. thatâ€™s not the answerâ€¦
A : ohhhâ€¦ okay.. actually Iâ€™m sick of this job.. â€œFreelance Programmerâ€? WHAT THE F???
Q : wowâ€¦ wowâ€¦ calm down broâ€¦
A : sorry.. Iâ€™m out of control.. Iâ€™m feel stressâ€¦.
Q : now, what happened to you?
A : well, the main reason is I have to focus on searching job on a cruise ship.. that is the main idea.. The second reason, Iâ€™m sick of this freelance job. You know, I donâ€™t have any programming certificate, so I canâ€™t give my clients reasonable price (for my work). The third reason is Iâ€™m sick of my clientsâ€¦ They were soâ€¦â€¦â€¦
Q : what do you mean? you got a lot of programming competition certificate!
A : but those arenâ€™t web programming competition! You know what? every my client asked me about any payment, I answered â€œwell, thatâ€™s up to you. I never give any number..â€
Q : ahâ€¦ thatâ€™s why you wanna stop being a programmer..
A : yupz.. But I canâ€™t leave it now. There are several clients waiting for me to finish their project..
Q : ah, thatâ€™s so kind of youâ€¦
A : Yes.. I am Mr. Nice guy.. I will put off job after I finished all the deadline.. focusing on applying for a professional job onboard. So I can fix my economy..
Q : when exactly will you leave these freelance stuff?
A : maybe after 20 November 2010.. Iâ€™m very sure of it..
Q : So how about your sites and blogs?
A : I will leave them live. So I have such things called memory.. Oh, the blogs, I will update andisetiawan.com only. So my family can read it while Iâ€™m aboard the cruise ship.
Q : one more question.. Will you come back to programming after you work on cruise ship?
A : Well, maybe.. but not as a freelancer anymoreâ€¦ Iâ€™ll start a professional business..
