      Yeah I used to feel that way about C. Besides whatever paying work I
      find I'm also a hobbyist and embedded systems programmer. But it was
      real easy to get spoiled with the leverage a dynamic language gives
      you and now writing in C feels like translating my thoughts for the
      benefit of the computer.

      But you're doing the work, so whatever works for you is the best approach :-)
