Lately I've been busy dealing drugs with teens, age within 11 (!!) - 19 years old. Err.. not exactly drugs but poisoning their minds with my ideology.
Ok, I joined a Runescape clan. Basically it's a group of people sharing stories & having fun in Runescape together.
I have plenty of stories to give u guys about this exciting new experience. Right now let me just share how these guys r truly amaze me, especially with their abilities to absorb information & stuff REALLY FAST.
When I created an IRC chan for this clan, I had troubles with the Bots & ChanServ, so I went to #help and pleading them to help me. So I have this guy help me and start talking complicated IRC stuff on the chan. After tidbits here and there, Yay, problems solved. Then he asked my age. Well.. I told him that possibly I am much older than him. And YA.. it turns out that he is 15 YEARS OLD and is an IRC WIZ. Me, a 20+ years old gal majoring in COMPUTER SCIENCE need help from him, a 15 years old DUDE. Being an overly competitive person that I am, I cannot stressed enough how I feel defeated in AGE. I mean, when I was 15 years old all my prog exp is only my "Gossip.bat" program using BASIC. And that's faaar simpler than IRC bots and scripts. Now if he continues learning stuff like that, imagine what kind of programmers like him that will fill out the workforce in 5 years or so.
Another story, this guy from the clan lately has downloaded PhotoShop (PS) v.7 aka CS. Naah, I feel that I am superior in this area since I've been playing with photoshop since age 15. But theenn.. when we started sharing links & tutorials, he gave me LOTS of websites links which I never seen before, and those site r totally AWESOME. You know, if u surfed the web and found really cool & edgy graphics, then u started wondering "How the Heck did they do that?". The links he gave me exactly answers those Qs. With these knowledge to help him learn PS, I have a feeling that he can get my kind of experience in less than 1 year.
Meanwhile for u graphic designers out there, try these links:
