Think technical challenge. Think fun. Don't think about classrooms and a dorm five minutes away from school.
Delphi is fun, although I miss Lisp's you-can-lowercase-everything style. I miss Lisp parentheses and easy syntax. I'm weird, aren't I?
S'okay. Am getting the hang of Delphi, and am looking forward to the translation challenge tomorrow.
I miss the academe, though. I feel more suited to it than to this. That's okay. I'll have the next few months to develop a really fine appreciation of the academe, something that'll sustain me through years of studies, frustrating classes, loads of tests to check... <laugh>
That said, I'm going to give this my best shot. It might not be one of my alternative careers, but that doesn't mean I don't want to be good at it. <grin>
Must figure out logistics for my Osaka trip.
