So I would like to know from you guys of what you really aim to achieve in this life. What you really want to become, the changes you want to bring in the society, etc.
This has nothing to do with your capacity on achieving the aim - Let us all just know what you want.
I personally want to become a computer programmer - A very good one. I want to master most of the widely used programming languages used in the industry. And I also aim to recieve good knowledge in Networking - Cloud Computing seems to be the king of the future!
I am doing my degree course in Commerce also - But that stands as my backup plan rather than my main career choice.
And for changing the society - Nothing makes me more angry than corruption, economic desparity and animal cruelty. I should and will stand against all these evil practices when its the right time.

It takes a special kind of person to enjoy programming. Not everyone has that spark. It is most definitely not a field to enter purely for the money. If you donít have the desire, you will not enjoy it. Programming takes a lot of logical thinking and the ability to break down problems and solve the bits in order.
A quick test to see if youíll enjoy programming is to think back to those little word problems in your math classes. Did you enjoy them? Was it a challenge that you enjoyed completing? Thatís the easiest correlation to programming, because in essence your job will consist of taking word problems from customers or your employer and devising solutions.
Just donít listen to people who claim that programming is not worth it..
I don't really know what I want to do with my life at this point. All I really know is I want to be able to make a difference in a lot of people's lives and I really wanna help people in some way and give back. I want to have a job where I can afford to give some of my income back to people who really need it. Not very specific, but it's a start.
