I am a self starter, I discovered my love for coding while in college. I still to this day love every minute of it. I have fallen in and out of love with some languages but overall still find the world of programming my home.
If you seek knowledge, push, attain it, and you will be happier for it. Ask questions, never be afraid to be wrong, teach others what you have learned without expecting anything in return. These are some of the ways I like to live my life and I find myself very happy. I program at work, I come home I take online courses and then read books on new languages before bed.
Its an amazing world of knowledge and I want to know it all, and if I fail. Well then at least I learned a lot.
