Hello, World!

“Hello World” is always the first program you write when you’re learning a new programming language. It’s supposed to get you familiar with the very basic functionality of writing a program: printing some text.

I haven’t manned a blog in many years - not since my college days when it was more a public journal of weekend parties. Going back and rereading those posts makes me cringe.

That doesn’t mean there haven’t been attempts to restart writing. I think many times, though, I lacked a good (or any) reason to write.

“Those who have a ‘why’ to live, can bear with almost any ‘how’.”

Viktor Frankl

I hope the only difference between this time and other times is now my opportunity to write. You see, I recently made the move to suburbia, and with it comes a 60 minute train ride. I plan to utilize that time to put my thoughts to digital paper.

About what? I’m taking a hint from my from my blog title, “Everybody Needs a Fishbowl,” and imposing some limitations. I’ll post to only the following personal and professional categories:

  • Software design + patterns
  • Strength/Lifting numbers
  • New house
  • Personal Finances/Money
  • Self development

Basically all of my personal and professional interests.

Stay tuned.
