It was only four days ago when I published the first blog post
here. Rewind seven years, when my dad sat down next to my
computer and began to walk me through the basics (no pun intended)
of computer programming.
It's at times like these when the outcome of someone's life-
around 95 long years - can be decided in an event that takes
around a half an hour.
In this case, that event was my dad and Small Basic. To this day
I don't remember any of it, excepting a few basic rules and flows.
But the fascination captured in my memory will be there for my
It's like an exponential equation. eventx = lifetime.
Exponents are cool. Getting off topic here. Okay.
Eventually, I took a course on CodeCademy on HTML, and since
webpages look good with bare-bone HTML. It was a good effort.
Before today, I liked programming, but didn't see myself going
anywhere with it because there were no classes in school about it.
It would take me years and years to learn anything from just online
Fast forward to now, where yesterday I applied to a vocational school where every
other week, I'll be taking programming and web development
classes for six hours a day. I'm so excited I literally can't sleep.
The scary part is - I've already completed my first year of high school.
And I'll be moving from my class of 112 to a class of 400, with
completely new people and schedules.
I'm going from knowing every single person to
knowing absolutely nobody.
Not to mention there's no band program.
But, it's for the better. I've always known that I naturally do better
at things I am interested in/passionate/excited about. And
programming is definitely one of those things.
I'm not quite sure where I was going with this post, but, in conclusion, looks like my programming career is definitely not ending here. Thank you for reading.
