First day

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.
