Ah, alright. I had quite a few projects throughout my college career that forced me to learn certain languages / software, so I get where you're coming from about just tackling projects in general. It's pretty much what I've done up to this point. They've got me specifically designing and working on the front-end for this web application we're building, so I'm thinking it's going to be a great learning experience. I've never touched database or server code up until this point, and it's pretty interesting. I'm really happy I got a position where I'm basically given free reign to pursue learning how to complete the task my own way.
hopefully your current company gives you a chance to touch both sides of the spectrum, and you can get a good feel where your comfort level is. my comfort level is the back end side of things.
just to note, if you do end up thriving on the back end side, it's not all about the code you are typing, but the design and methodologies you are using. it all goes down to the basics.
