FTSF is here. Join in the fun. Today's sentence is:
The best fourth of July I hadwas when I turned 18
4th of July signifies independence! I was given the liberty to make my own decisions after I turn 18. I do not deny that I made all the right decisions in life, but to fall and then get up and lick my wounds is another way to get going! Correct? I made quite a few blunders and wasted some money of my parents. Allowing me to trod on a path without any guards, was the decision, thus there was no argument at home. Computer programming was one of them. Being a chemistry major, I was told that Computer programming is like writing a recipe, and since I had been making concoctions in my lab on a daily basis. I thought of venturing into the BASIC programming language.
PUT"What is your name: ", UserName$
PRINT"Hello "; UserName$
DOINPUT"How many stars do you want: ", NumStars
Stars$ =STRING$(NumStars,"*")PRINT Stars$
DOINPUT"Do you want more stars? ", Answer$
LOOPUNTIL Answer$ <>""
PRINT"Goodbye "; UserName$
Unfortunately, my logic would not work.
What's in a name? Why need stars? What for?
Seriously, do you get it?
I remember my computer instructor would ask us to make such weird programs, which made no sense.
Result: My brain did not absorb any logistics of this class. I suffered for 6 long months. All that was taught bounced off my gray matter. I was left with bitterness since firstly wasted money and secondly, I was left confused why do they say that computer programming is like writing a recipe. I left that statement as is, and continued on with my life.
Mantra for today: Sometimes, things unresolved is the key to happiness
