I couldn't justify it for a long time but I can't stand writing long quality posts and having my phone swallow them when something wonky happens. And I'm determined to put up a book review! Hope it's not a piece of junk.

When I was in sixth grade they started teaching is how to write computer programs and I loved it. Old fashioned really simple computers. Then we went to junior high and they didn't teach computers anymore. I missed the boat! Oh well, I did other stuff.

I can't imagine trying to write a long post on a phone! Even writing short comments on my tablet are a pain.


When I was in 6th-7th grade I also took a computer class like you mentioned- Programming Apple II computers with Apple Basic.
Put in the giant floppy disk, flip the switch, and some whirring and beeping and buzzing, then, magic!

Computers were a lot simpler then, I'm still amazed how far they've come.
