Don't Be Afraid to Fail

Many of my disappointments in life - at least the ones I had control over - can be attributed to fear. Not fear of a particular person, thing, or situation, but simply a fear of failure. Due to my nature as a perfectionist, it's exceptionally difficult to try a task that I very likely will fail at. I'm sure I am not the only with this challenge.

PyCon 2015

I enjoyed PyCon 2015 in Montreal, Quebec. For those readers that don't know what PyCon is all about, it's a conference for people that use the Python programming language. There are professional developers, students, educators, and people from all walks of life brought together by a common interest in the language.

Sheets of paper litter the floor and the desk. They are scrawled with primitive drawings of monsters, swords, wizards, and knights. One paper in particular contains a map of a city – painstakingly drawn on graph paper with shops, temples, and dungeon entrance clearly marked down on the legend. On top of the desk is a computer, and I sat there, my fingers typing away at the keyboard, as I looked to the screen and back to the map.
