"Do what you love and you'll never work a day in your life" is probably the truest statement, but there's a lot of people who get the definition muddled.

They think "Oh well that means there wont ever be hard days and there'll never be times where I'll struggle or get frustrated, and it means I'll go home at the end of the day feeling refreshed and ready to do it forever ad infinitum"

There absolutely will be days where you're fuckin done with semicolons or that you've had it with other devs, but the saying doesnt mean any of that. What it means is that while you may dislike the corporate environment or the fact that you dont really care for it after work hours, while you're doing your tasks in their purest form, you're not really feeling all too bad.

I know a lot of people have gripes with this statement. Pull your finger out of your ass and admit that either you don't love it anymore or that you didn't really understand exactly what it was you were loving all that much in the first place.

    On a side note, hunting down missing semicolons should be the IDEs job not yours.

    @Mr-Myrk That's nice and all but when you have mutual dependencies in C++ headers, both IDE and compiler go nuts (unless the IDE is pretty smart tv).

    unless what you love doing is fixing things. If that's the case, take that secret, store it in a lock box and toss it down a deep dark well to the underworld.
