"Libraries aren’t in the real world, after all. They’re places apart, sanctuaries of pure thought."

I wonder if it will ever stop raining.
I am struggling with my learning adventure. I’m impatient. I want to learn how to do everything now.
I feel like those people who ask me for books on how to learn something while sleeping. I have stuffed myself silly with lessons, podcasts, cheat sheets, templates and such and I still feel I can’t even put together any of it.
I looked over to my other private blog. I made the decision to learn web development again on April 2, 2013.
Ten years after quitting.
There are those little gremlins in my head that go: you will never get to the next stage.
There is just too much to learn.
What you learned today is obsolete tomorrow.
You are old.
You are not a computer science geek.
You should study more.
By the time you learn you’ll be 80.
There is also that part of me that has been sailing easily for the last three years. Extreme comfort will damage you. I don’t want to be comfortable anymore. Not that I want to be uncomfortable all the time but I want to make progress.
Comfort calls me every second of the day in a sweet seducing voice: drop everything and grab a book. Keep on sailing by.
Will it ever get tired?
