A couple of years ago when I met my first computer programming book, a strang thing occurred in my head. I'm not sure but it's like falling in love but instead of having some weird feeling in the chest, the vibration was between my two ears. Since that moment, I eat about programming all that my brain can every days from the early morning to the end of the day just before closing my bedside table light.

I don't know if it can be treated but I think I will have to accept that I will die with this passion.

"The three chief virtues of a programmer are: Laziness, Impatience and Hubris." - Larry Wall

Laziness: I'm too lazy to do the same task repeatedly so write scripts to do that task for me. This makes people think I am intelligent.

Impatience: I'm too impatient to wait for my code to run so rewrite the code to improve performance. This makes people think I am a good programmer.

Hubris: When someone asks if I can do something I just say Yes, then go find out how to do it (Google!). This makes people think I can do anything.

Ultimately, it means I can make a career out of being Lazy, Impatient, and Hubristic.
