I have the weirdest geek obsession

I just discovered CMMI and I’m fascinated by it. Why have I never heard of this before?

I don’t know that being a Project Management Geek is better than being a Star Wars Geek, but that’s what I am. I’m buying and reading books about PM in my spare time. I love reading articles about this stuff. I’m getting a masters in it just because I enjoy studying the subject and becoming better at its practice.

I’ve always hated the concept of “follow your passion, find your place.” I don’t think we need to have passion to find a place or be happy. But I’m discovering, after studying this subject for a year, that I may just be passionate about PM. I didn’t think I was passionate about anything, but I really love this subject, and I don’t want to do anything else with my career.

It’s too bad that this means I feel like the biggest nerd in the world. At least I’m not alone.
