Confessions of a Final Year Confused Mind
What ? Me and confused ? These were the questions that came to my mind when I first realized that I’m confused
I always had a clear path once I wrote my first program in class 9th when the love for Computers was born Then, I took CS in 11th and it developed from a hobby to a more serious passion. Finally, CS engineering happened when I made computers my career.
Now, I am in the final year and have many options but all of them are related to Computers. What to do ? Earlier, I would just choose follow my heart which always said Computers, Computers and Computers.
So, as the picture on the right rightly denotes :
The More I Think, The More Confused I Get
When I was a kid, I wanted to :
- Open a Toy shop and sell GI Joe, Hot Wheels and what not ?
- Become a politician and improve the society ( After watching Nayak for ~20 times)
- IAS officer. Well, I met a uncle who had all types of facilities
- Beat Bill Gates. I didn’t know that Linux existed back then
- Work in the army and destroy Pakistan for once and all ( BORDER )
- Eradicate poverty by some weird idea
- Teacher and change the way students think.
- The next Mark Zuckerberg ( pre final year)
- Just another Software professional with a fat package ( Read cisco)
So many things ? Yes, my dreams changed almost every year. Back then, it was so easy to dream You could just keep on dreaming and change the world.
Now, I am a confused mind with loads of advices floating around from teachers, parents, friends, professionals and virtual friends.Why so much confusion ? Why can’t I be like other and just take any job ? Why ? Was it the same way for our parents or we have too many options ? Do the decisions you take now really matter after say 20 years ? Will you regret them ?
Final year is so much with all friends getting placed and TREATS. ( Well, who doesn’t like free food ? ) So, amidst all my placed or soon to be placed friends who perhaps are very clear about what they want, I am here with just options but no decisions.
You can’t undo your decisions but you can redo them
