I was going through my financials for the week, as I always do on Sundays, when I noticed an odd deposit I hadn’t seen before:
Apple ACH CRED $3.50
Could that be what I thought it was?!?
I went and logged into iTunes Connect, and after a few minutes of puttering around (it’s been a while!) I found the financial reports section and, sure enough, there it was!
This is the first time I have *ever* gotten paid *anything* during my new career as a mobile App developer! I got canned from nine years at Freescale in 2009 when they laid off my whole department. Since then I’ve done only one brief 6-month stint at AT&T. Staying focused on my new career, dreamy though it is, has been shockingly hard. In fact, I’m going to a class at the Human Potential Center on being Stuck to work on it this very Saturday.
But I have to tell you, there’s something *really* important about seeing that deposit. There’s something very *real*. Sure the money came mostly from my friends. Sure it’s a tiny, worthless amount that wouldn’t even get me a cappuccino at Strange Brew. But. BUT.
I got PAID.
It’s time to get paid some more!
