Yeah, at my high school I took intro to c++, intro to java, intermediate java, advanced java, html, advanced JavaScript, AP computer science, and Microsoft academy. I was emergency expelled my senior year for hacking into the school district, but was let back in when they could'nt come up with enough proof. I learned a lot in school but most my knowledge came from trolling forums and reading stuff on Wikipedia and such. If you don’t love computers then it’s going to be hard for you to learn them. For me, computers are just a hobby. My major in college Is business finance of all things lol.
