Zen and the art of ignoring XPby DaWolf (Curate)
|on May 12, 2005 at 02:57 UTC||Need Help??|
I was wandering and wondering today on the monastery when I've realized something:
I've lost a XP point (thing that nowadays doesn't happen so often) and I've got momentaneously mad about it. That's when I've got this insight.
I mean, I'm 200+ points from "saint" (quotes here so religious people don't feel offended), and as far as I feel so proud of me to finally achieve the "saint" level, I don't feel like one. I have many MANY more things to learn with Perl before I can call myself one.
So I was thinking: "Ok, I'll be a saint in a couple of months/years and I'm sure I WILL brag about it, but this isn't really important". I mean, the important thing is that I'll code Perl better and better and I'll understand more of the language.
For me, as a self-made Perl programmer, that is more than I could ever ask, since I have an enormous respect for the monastery.
I just had to get that off my chest.
Long live the Perl Monks!
