I have the tendency of beginning stories in the middle so it’s fitting that my “Hello World” introduction of my blog is not the first post but the third. So hello, and thanks in advance for the words of mine you read!
I recently learned that the first application that almost every programmer begins with is the “Hello World” application. It’s a simple application designed to demonstrate the basic principles and techniques that are used when designing more in-depth applications. In a perfect world this blog post would work the same way, I could give you the basics of how I use language so that later I’d be able to go more in depth.
I have often fantasized about being able to offer my friends and acquaintances an instruction manual, or perhaps a decoder ring, so that they could more easily understand my quirks. Of course, in relationships it’s not one person training another to understand them, it’s more like developing a shared language.
I’m in a new relationship with this blog you’re reading. I don’t know how often I’ll post or what kinds of things I’ll dare write about publicly, so I can’t tell you what to expect. There’s no decoder ring here. But if you’re willing, I invite you to follow along. The plan is simple: I will be human, I will think my thoughts, feel my feelings, and share what I can.
