Day 32

I am not sure why I feel like writing today, but I do.

All in all, today was a much more successful day than yesterday. I was able to finish level 1 of the assignment. Woo! A part of me is not satisfied however.

I feel as though I could be doing more. Actually, I know I could be doing more. Lately, I have been thinking a lot. Not about anything in particular. Really, just life as a whole. What does it really mean? What is my purpose?

What I do know is that I love the feeling of being consumed by something. When I am waste deep in code, or in the “zone”, it is the best feeling in the world. If I had to liken it to something, it is very similar to the euphoria of falling in love.

Tangent aside, the word destiny comes to mind a lot, but I don’t think it is quite that. Destiny is more of believing that something will happen regardless of your actions. I don’t really subscribe to that notion.

It is really interesting that the more I learn about computer programming, the easier it is for me to think about the world, and put it into logical terms.

Take a loop for example. Isn’t each day a loop? Isn’t it just another named day inside of the class called day? Each day repeats. Seasons repeat as well. Isn’t life just different elements looping at different intervals? Come to think of it, aren’t we all just made up of atomic elements constructed together in this human class?

So let’s bring back that notion into destiny/opportunities or whatever you want to call it.

If life is just an algorithm, then opportunities are programmed into your function of life. Sure, some may receive less than others, but ultimately we all have the same capabilities being inside the human class. What I mean by receive less than others could be what we own, whether that be physical attributes or possessions connected to us(wealth, the affections of others, sense of community etc..) are variables that do not start at null, or zero. Some are given wealth. Some are given good physical attributes. That does not really stop your capabilities as a human being.

In that sense, I am really fortunate. I was given 0. Now that may sound negative, but it literally is not negative. I could have been born in debt, into hardship, with physical limitations, but I did not.

Maybe the meaning of life really is:

do{
bool Success = Take(Opportunity);
}While (!Success)
