"Derive happiness in oneself from a good day's work, from illuminating the fog that surrounds us." ~Matisse
I was never a great academic student. In the past when I had to understand a theory in computer science this was my routine. I read the concept a billion times, headed to office hours to annoy the instructor/professor, asked my friends for clarification and then YouTube the heck out of that concept. Then I cried lol 😭.
Fond memories from having my tiny bedroom light up with US Robotics modems with some dude from Holland calling into my modem.
