Yesterday I had my first taste of what it's like to be a programmer, and looking back, I don't care for it much. The way of thinking required felt different than my usual way, and it felt less creative, less smart, less free, and less powerful.

When itโ€™s closed, you canโ€™t get your car in or out. If that were your situation, your biggest transportation problem would not be traffic congestion, or how fast you can go on the freeway; it would be how to get this frigging gate to open more often."

"i mean i rarely buy clothing, living on one pair of pants, one pair of shoes, and bunch of t-shirts for years at a time. but when i DO buy something, my favorite thing is a great jacket. a great jacket feels like it can come cover all the garbage underneath, including the person."
