I'm... not sure what's changed, but suddenly I'm enthusiastic about learning gory details of programming, digging into things and actual practicing again.
I wish I had anything more concrete to grasp at than hoping I can catch up to where mira_fastfire is in real-world programming skill, since while I may have at one time (perhaps even now) have had dramatically more theoretical skill than her, I feel her approach through college is far more marketable than anything I could muster.
Programming is still a 'hobby' to my mind in many ways, because I like the mental focus to wield it effectively in extended bursts. Lately... that's been changing, and I hope the change is permanent and not fleeting.1 commentLeave a comment

If you're doing something purely for fun, the mental focus is all you've got to get you through the hard parts. I'm very pro-work in that respect: the job prevents your attention from wandering, and practice makes perfect.
