Force pushing a better version in a different language to the repo of a program that I wrote 2 years ago. It was sort of a memory, but I mainly looked at it to feel better about my current coding style.

I don't want to take comfort in knowing that I'm getting better. I know that, and it feels like false affirmation. If anything, I want to know that I'm good compared to others, not compared to a previous, dumber version of me. I'll never get to beat him anyway.

    Shouldn't self-improvement be the other way around?
    If you're not satisfied with your improvements, maybe you just haven't improved enough.
    Don't confuse satisfaction for stagnation.
