Programming is not exactly what I expected
When I decided to start a career in programming, I thought it will be creative, that I will be like a wizard from the movies. Little did I knew that programming is mostly a repetitive task - you get specs from your team leader or management and you have instructions how to implement it, best practices etc. Basically they tell you what and also how to do it. This is in web development mostly. I guess there are other branches of programming where you can be more creative. In freelancing you are your own boss. The money is awesome tho :)
