Sick of love

Quote

“She loved the guy. She did it for him. She would’ve done anything for him. Some people are like that. Some loves are like that. Most loves are like that, from what I can see. Your heart starts to feel like an overcrowded lifeboat. You throw your pride out to keep it afloat, and your self-respect and your independence. After a while you start throwing people out—your friends, everyone you used to know. And it’s still not enough. The lifeboat is still sinking, and you know it’s going to take you down with it. I’ve seen that happen to a lot of people here. I think that’s why I’m sick of love.”

P.S. Used this to get the quote (typed this in Chrome dev console - press F12):
var quote = "";
var a = $('#content blockquote')[0];
$("cufontext", a).each(function(d, e) { quote += e.textContent; });

Reading: Leaning Python the Hard Way

I just saw a wonderful book: Learning Python the Hard Way (it’s also available as a  PDF version; thanks people!). A very nice book to begin with.

When flipping through the book, this paragraph caught my eyes:

I will say that learning to create software changes you and makes you different. Not better or worse, just different. You may find that people treat you harshly because you can create software, maybe using words like “nerd”.Maybe you will find that because you can dissect their logic that they hate arguing with you. You may even find that simply knowing how a computer works makes you annoying and weird to them.

To this I have one just piece of advice: they can go to hell. The world needs more weird people who know how things work and who love to figure it all out. When they treat you like this, just remember that this is your journey, not theirs.Being different is not a crime, and people who tell you it is are just jealous that you have picked up a skill they never in their wildest dreams could acquire.

You can code. They cannot. That is pretty damn cool.

Now that’s an advice, I think, we all need. It’s not only the so-called ‘nerds’ who suffer from such behaviours

Seriously.

Hello world!

I welcome myself to my very first blog! What are my goals in writing one? Well, writing something, for one; and there is some place that I need, where I can gather all the things I like. I have lits of thoughts that I like and hence I would like them to be organised and in someplace safe. So this blog is more about organizing my own thoughts than anything else.

So, Hello World (of Blogs)! 😀

And here’s something that I came across and absolutely loved it!
