Wow, I don't know if you can tell from my posts this week, but I am living
Going through all the emotions, and yesterday was one of pure exaltation as I not only merged my first, but my first two pull requests!
Just small things for now (added myself and a teammate to Orbit's About Us page and added a link to another page), but I'm seriously so keenly aware of how this is such a monumental moment in the beginning of my career as a software engineer.
While it's easy to brush these moments off as being 'just small things,' though, isn't it so much more magnificent to really and truly appreciate them as the more significant building blocks of a wild, new adventure?
I think so...
