First of all, thank you all for supporting my new ideas. It really helped to get started. I was overwhelmed by Upen’s enthusiasm and Shruti’s ideas of name suggestions for the new series. We have finally settled on the name ‘Monday Mumbles’ and the first post is finally up.
If you are interested in knowing what I am talking about, go here.
In the first post of Monday Mumbles, I am asking you all a question. If any of you want to share/ask something for next Monday, please mention in comments or send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
And, here’s the question:
What is that one thing that you wish you could change about your personality?
Well, my answer is going to be slightly long, it’s a simple thing that I wish was different but I am going to explain it a bit. I wish I was more sound with the course that I studied in graduation. I am a Computer Science Engineer but I am not at all good at coding/programming. I am so glad that I changed my industry when I started working (but I don’t get to do good work) but deep down under it will always prick me that I was never good at programming and I wish I could work in that field for sometime, you know, because it would have justified studying it and, well, it just feels smarter. Moreover, my college is very different from other engineering colleges in India. My institute is quite focused on research and programming is taken very seriously apart from as a course content, so for students good at that, that place is truly heaven. It felt bad to not be one of them. You know it’s not necessary to be the best everywhere but I wish was better than myself.
Edit: I might become an average coder if I work towards it but, seriously, it’s hard for me to even try being that.
On a side note, if you know someone who is really passionate about coding and Computer Science and planning to do B.Tech and is not scared of pressure, definitely let them know about IIIT, Delhi.
Pheww! I am done. Now I am waiting for what you guys have to say. 🙂
