|laziness, impatience, and hubris|
It would seem that every time I type "emacs" in the command line and start off by entering "#!/usr/bin/perl -w" into the editor session I end up learning something new about Perl. So I've never stopped learning Perl.
Coming to Perl Monks for the first time (2001) helped me understand how much more I needed to learn back then. I thought I was "Hotel-Sierra" at Perl and found out that there were many corners of the language I had not looked in.
Regex'es continue to plague me no matter how much reading on the subject I've done, no matter how many examples I've tried no matter what. Every time I get a regex to execute as I expect I do the happy victory dance.
Seems to me you never stop learning this language we all love so much...
