My first post

Well, here it is, my first post on my newly-created blog! Don't expect anything interesting to be posted here for a bit. I'm still getting used to the idea of blogging, and I get really nervous writing stuff that the public might see and criticize me for.

Anyway, a bit of history about me might be useful. I'm a kid who's obsessed with computer programming. I started learning the Logo programming language when I was something like 6. My dad taught me how to program in Java when I was about 8 or 9 or something, and I started work on my first really successful attempt, Evaluation Portal, when I was 11. Since then, programming has been my hobby. I can program in Java, Logo, Basic, C++ to an extent, Javascript, HTML (yes, by hand), and JSP (JSP is an extension of Java for doing web applications).

I am also an obsessed pyro. I'm not going to write anymore yet, but you can see the video below (it's sideways, so tilt your head to the right) for one of the less dangerous fireworks that I built (I was at my grandma's once and lit her neighbor's grass on fire). During the last part of the firework, the flame was roughly 6 feet tall, as can be seen from the tree in the background.
