blast of enthusiasm for newly acquired skill

Last night Jason began teaching me the fundamentals of html. Previously, he had attempted to teach me java, but it just didn't take. He thought PHP would be more successful because it has Web applications that might suit me better.

I like html builders that show the Web view of your code. Lots of feedback, and instant gratification. Much like any skill I obtain, I am now craving to get back to it- to learn more, to master it. I never quite master any of these insta-acquire skills, but I feel like I do, and then I discard them like a toy.

Good thing I don't do that with boyfriends anymore.
