Hiya, I started programming for MS-DOS 6.22 with GW-Basic when I was 11-13 years old. I didn't know what a compiler was. There was no internet to go find out what was required to build software for the machine instead of an interpreter.

What I wanted most of all was to understand what made the computer work. Why it knew, and could display symbols I typed on a keyboard, or print graphics or make sounds.

Now I understand a lot of those things. I can open any text editor and express my ideas and compile them to running code on virtually any platform. Still, everyday, I learn something new.

Take problems as a helping hand to give you the tools you need to make what you actually want to make. When you are too focused on the thing that is blocking you right now, remember where your horizon is, and that some version of you is there waiting.
