So in middle school we had a computer lab, and in the lab we programmed in Pascal.

Pascal is an imperative and procedural programming language, which Niklaus Wirth designed in 1968–69 and published in 1970, as a small, efficient language intended to encourage good programming practices using structured programming and data structuring. It is named in honor of the French mathematician, philosopher and physicist Blaise Pascal.

This is startlingly close to what my first high level language program consisted of:
program Cheese;
var c: char;
begin
    writeln('Do you like cheese? y/n');
    readln(c);
    if c = 'y' then
        writeln('Good')
    else 
        writeln('Bad');
end.

Why do I share this? One reason: to show that we all started somewhere. After Pascal I took courses in Assembly, C, C++, Java, HTML, CSS, JavaScript... the list continues growing to this day.

There is no shame in coming from somewhere.
There is shame in never going anywhere.
