I bought my first computer when I was 7 years old. When other guys were playing computer games, I was coding. I did some sports but was still quite fat. During puberty I was annoyed when other friends of mine were talking about their women and I didn’t have even one single phone number. I just sat on my computer and was wondering about the secrets of C++.
I graduated from high school. I got a summer internship from a software company. While friends of mine continued their studies, I continued to work. Now after four years my friends are bragging with their degrees and high salaries, I can only say to them that I’m a director of over 70 people and my salary is over five times bigger than my friends’.
After puberty I didn’t gain any weight but I got taller. Add a few hours of gym per week to that and you can say that my body is quite well formed nowadays. At the moment I have lots of women, power and money, and it seems that there’s no end to this. Somebody might wonder why am I telling this story, but the motive of mine is to tell all the nerds on their computers that continue creating code, drink Coca Cola, sleep late and eat cold microwave pizzas. It will pay off!
