I started learning Perl when I was 26. Perl was my first programming language. I like Perl a lot.

Restless Again

[ #1555 ]
I guess the fact that 2am has come and gone is evidence that I've got a few things on my mind. I find myself full of more impatience and hubris than ever before.

I just read some of Bertrand Meyer's writings and my mind is full of crazy thoughts. I've been reading a lot of different stuff lately...Larry Wall interviews, The Design of Everyday Things, various perldocs on module creation. I can't get enough. There are more books on my book list than I could read in a week. :)

I'm still not sure if my "inner catch-up motor" is a blessing or a curse. In 5 hours from now when the kids wake up...I'll probaly think it's a curse.

Here's a quote from Larry that describes how I've felt for a long time...

I think God put me here for a reason. I remember walking down the halls in my high school and getting this tremendous sense of destiny. Like I was supposed to do something really great. It was a really weird feeling. I feel like if I have an accurate view of myself, it frees me to be both humble and a megalomaniac at the same time.
