off the rails!

Unlike programming, there are no absolute paths in real day to day life. When I finally took my future seriously, I didn't know where to begin or even what I wanted. I couldn't see myself in a 4 year college nor could I see myself doing service jobs for the rest of my life. The one thing I did know is that I love technology and even more so, loved the framework that created it.
As we age, we usually move on from our "why?" phase, but not in my case. I question everything, needing to know all the little details as to why something works. As it sometimes is a curse, it's most definitely a blessing when learning and writing code.
As I embark on this journey, I glance at my sticky note attached to my monitor that says "Rylie, future Software Engineer," knowing that one day I could be programming my favorite video game or a program that could change lives.
