My geek blood is raging
Tuesday, August 28, 2012
So... I have been doing quite a bit of research lately. Mostly regarding network security, wireless and such. The more I find out, the more I want to know, the more I want to experiment with a lot of things. It's been quite awhile since I've gotten so fired up about something.
Of course, it's this turning point that always astounds and depresses me.
Whenever you're trying to learn something, it'll definitely come a time where you realize, in order to get better, you have to spend exponentially more effort on it in order to improve. A good example I could give for myself, is skates. I've reached a point where in order to get significantly better, I have to practice so hard I simply don't have the motivation to do so. (of course I'm really not any good yet)
But you see, computers/engineering/networking is my interest. I think these are one of the things where I'm willing to spend significantly more effort to get better at. I've always wanted to be a hacker. Not a black hat (illegal), but you know, having the ability to get things done is not bad at all.
Oh also, the turning point is also when you realize how shitty you are at something. I mean, I always say I'm a geek and stuffs. And even though it's true that I could do some geeky things, it's just.. nothing worth bragging about. (even so I am proud of my little achievements)
While I am still self reflecting, I realize I give a damn about what people think about me and the views I get for this blog. Hmm... I really shouldn't. Because this place is going to get a lot geekier.
Of course, this is a good chance for you to start exploring the world of networking as well. For a good reason as well. So you could laugh at me when I made a mistake or find out about something that is common sense.
Meh, seems like I've got my goals set for the upcoming holidays.
