    I'm 15 right now, and I want to either become one of the few competent computer teachers :P or an actual programmer.

    Ever since I was a child I wanted to be an architect. It came around to apply for university, I still had it in mind. I then thought something in the computer industry would be better, so with very little knowledge in programming, I applied for Computer Science.

    When I was 15, I wanted to be a rock'n'roll guitarist and to marry my first love, Alma. Never did either. Back then, I had never used a computer, didn't know what a programmer did, and the internet didn't even exist! (well, not this kind of internet at least)
    Pretty sad huh?
    Code:
    #include <cmath>
    #include <complex>
    bool euler_flip(bool value)
    {
        return std::pow
        (
            std::complex<float>(std::exp(1.0)), 
            std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
            * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1.0)
            *(1 << (value + 2)))
        ).real() < 0;
    }

    I've always wanted to become a programmer, and now I'm studying computer sciences.

    When I was 15... hm... I was still in school, not even able to get the classes I wanted. We could chose classes for the final exams by year 11 of 13. When I was 15, I must have been year 9 or 10. I knew I wanted to do something logical. Something involving math. I'm not sure I was fully aware there was a life outside school *g*

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    You hit the nail right on the head.
    Code:
    #include <cmath>
    #include <complex>
    bool euler_flip(bool value)
    {
        return std::pow
        (
            std::complex<float>(std::exp(1.0)), 
            std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
            * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1.0)
            *(1 << (value + 2)))
        ).real() < 0;
    }

    I was lost, had no clue where I was. I was unsure of my friends even though they werer there, and I was unsure of myself. I was also quickly becoming set on going to the Air Force Acadamy. Now I am sure of my friends and myself, and well, I'm not @ Air Force (or any other military school) But if i said much else I'd lose some of my mystery wouldn't I?
