“Sue you are doing engineering, right?” He asks, a hint of curiosity in his voice. ” Yes I am,why?” I reply with a cloud of confusion howering over me because of his sudden interest in my field of education. Knowing him well, it seemes to be headed in a dangerous direction.
“So, you can make an android application right? Being an engineer they might have taught you! So why don’t you make an Android application!!” he says with challange in his voice.
I did consider it for a minute thou; but deep down I knew I cannot make an Application that good, even if I did manage to make one, it won’t be without a hell lot of trouble and effort. So in state of mental urgency to reject his challange and to save myself from the embaressment, I tried to tell him that we only learn the basics of Application development , and these are not really sufficient to make an Application.
(p.s:- There might be everything in the syllabus but being an average student I really did not study everything, so I don’t really know..But I refrained from telling him that 😂)
“There are soo many Application developers out there for whom making an application is a piece of cake! So why should I go through the trouble of learning it when I can just go buy one!” I added just to butter up things a bit.
“Hahaha! Then what is the use of you doing engineering if you cannot even make an Application, and anyway engineers cannot do anything they are just for the name sake!!” he added.
His words Really offended me( with a capital R!)
I mean really, people get a life!!! We are engineers and definately NOT jacks of all!
Okay wait; Just try to recall how many time an engineer has been told to repair a household item, or some printer that is not working ? (If you are an engineer how many times have you been told?)
Even after trying their best to fix it, by any chance if they are unable to solve the problem they surely get to hear this:
“What’s the use of you being an engineer! You can’t even do such a small thing!”
Well this is the tragedy of every Engginers Life.
But in my case, it’s no household work,or even a stupid printer! It is actually something that an engineering can really do!
So, with all due respect to all the engineers, I decided to accept his challange to make a proffessional Application in 3 months starting today!
There at that momemt I arrogantly went on to take up the challenge, but now I am not sure if I can do it? Plus I am shit scared as I don’t even know the A of Android Development .
But I am going to try, because a person who can complete 200 pages of an assignment in one night and also study 6 units in a day prior to final examination- managing a first class; accroding to me can literally do ANYTHING!
But, I will need your help to keep me motivated. Being a lazy person I tend to postpone things alot and never really get around doing them …
So, let me know below if you have any tips and tricks to help me be motivated!
O wait, I forgot to tell you one small thing, “I decided to do it All My Way.. with self learning!!!”
“Do you think it is possible???”
“Let me know how I should go about beginning it…”
