Programming, paradigms 

I had a conversation with my friend yesterday about OOP, and I ended up realizing that I was kinda lulled into it, and have been trying to jam every project I worked on into some sort of OOP, even when the language wasn't naturally supportive of it (php, javascript), or that OOP didn't serve any good to the project

Not that my argument is "OOP is bad in every situation" but I was silently of the opinion that everything is better with OOP. And that started in college, since we first learned C, and right after that C++ and OOP in C++. The rest of the college was mostly done through C++ and C#, some Java, and very, very rarely (optional courses) javascript and php.

Oh yeah we did do some AI course in common lisp, that was cool :D

@worntunic There has definitely been a significant creep from "OOP is a solution to a set of problems" to "OOP is the best solution & you should twist your problem until it looks like something OOP can solve".

@shivoa I'm kinda romanticizing my feelings on this matter, but the strange feeling of accomplishment is something I still get when I implement something using OOP principles or some design patterns. Like basking in its elegance.
