I am Groot

In case you don’t know what the title refers too, Groot is the little tree thing below and it’s a character from Guardians of the Galaxy.

Since watching the new Guardians film, I have joked that I too am Groot.

Though it sounds like there’s not much substance to this claim, in a way there is.

Little Groot is in the early stage of his life and I am currently in the same stage of my programming career. I am learning and growing all the time which is equal parts great and equal parts challenging.

Like little Groot I’ve got a long way to go. Often I think I’m right but I’m not. Then when I think I’ve nailed it, I attempt to solve the same problem again and I definitely haven’t.

What I’m trying to say is that although it’s frustrating sometimes, it’s ok to be a little Groot and hopefully, one day, I’ll become a big Groot.
