It’s my birthday today. Happy Birthday to me, I guess.
Those of ‘blessed’ with a January birth
My birthday post is going to be different. I’m going to take you through some of what I go through everyday as a Coder or Computer Programmer.
First a brief history :
Why do I love codes and scripts so much? Two words: The Matrix. Yes my interest was ignited the day I saw that movie and increased even more after watching The Italian Job. Just seeing what you can do with a computer. How much distress you can create with a keyboard, I knew automatically what I wanted to do…

No I do not mean Personal Computer. I’m talking about that slippery slope aptly dubbed Political Correctness.
Describes language, policies, or measures that are intended to avoid offense or disadvantage to members of particular groups in society.
This is not what PC is today…
In this new world we live in, you have to be careful about everything you say lest you ‘offend’ someone. Well today, I don’t care, let’s go down this slope… (fair warning, if the truth is too much for you, I advise you stop now)
“If you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life.”
I came across these words, can’t seem to remember where, I think it was Confucius, I may be wrong…… but ever since then, they’ve been part of why I always make sure that whatever I do is solely and completely my choice.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone of you a very Happy and Prosperous New Year.
My love and I had planned something special for New Years Eve, but those plans fell through….
Despite that, we still had a magnificent time together. Any time I get to spend with her regardless what we’re doing, is something I cherish so much.
Now we tackle this new year as as a Force…. Strong As One
We come from two different worlds, but somehow we found each other and I can’t even begin to imagine being with anyone else…..
I would like to share something she wrote:
It feels so good to wake up to a text from your significant other… So far I think our childishness as people have put it is keeping us alive…We are never bored of each other… We are not afraid to be weird with each other, quirky or our real selves… We are not focused so much on impressing each other that we neglect our relationship which is what most couples do… We are encouraging of each other and we don’t judge each other… So far we are amazing and am proud of how far we have come… I am even gloating… But it hasn’t been smooth sailing through out… We had cracks on our boat, most people just glue it and keep sailing… We stopped, took the boat apart and built again from scratch and we are again sailing… Don’t be afraid of confrontation, sometimes the thing you think is unforgivable just might be forgivable… Be honest with your partner, don’t always feel you will be rejected… Think what if am accepted with all my luggage cause that can happen too…
I love you honey. Je promets de garder l’amour et la confiance que tu m’as donnés

This is something that happened to me quite recently, and if I don’t talk about it, I’ll start a new year conflicted.
If you’ve read any of my older posts, you know that I had to do a course in Computer Engineering and write those exams because of the incompetence of certain people. Also I study French and I had my C1 DALF exam in November.
I’ve always been fascinated by foreign languages and when I got the chance to learn French during form 1 at Kutama College, I was over the moon. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, I had to leave the school. When I got the chance to learn French again, I jumped at the opportunity. I’d like to return to Kutama, maybe teach French for a bit. Anyway, I digress….

A young child is very impressionable and whatever you show them will stick more than anything they may learn later on…
I started thinking about this as I noticed my niece glued to the TV. Curious as to what had her so zoned out I went to take a look, what I saw not only surprised me, it confused and worried me.
I would like to think that we all watched the cartoons at some point in our childhood. I remember the cartoons I used to watch, they kept me engaged, wanting to know what happens next. This is is because they had an actual plot you could follow. Even other children’s programs always imparted some type of a lesson.
