It is going to be really different for me, especially since I will be living away from home for the first time ever and I will have to be responsible for a lot of the stuff that my parents have always done for me. It is really tough for me, since my girlfriend is going to be going to a different university a long way off and we both figure that is the end of it. Right now my plan is to study computer science and I think that if I had my way the goal is mobile app developer. I have never really been the sort of person who enjoys having other people tell me what to do, you can ask my mother and she will tell you this. So I have been thinking about how I can figure out how to earn a good living and do exactly what I want to do.
Obviously that is basically not a possible outcome. If you are obscenely wealthy then you get to do pretty much what you want to do, although there are obvious lessons. I am probably not interested in working as hard as you need to do to get that rich. Those people are usually obsessed with success and to get there from zero you need a really great idea. I figure that if you are really good at making an app, then you will have easy access to clients who will want apps. I think the best thing would be to find some sort of cookie cutter type template that would work for a lot of clients, then figure out how to specialize it for each one. McDonald’s and all the other big chain restaurants have their own apps, but there are lots of restaurants that will want their own soon.
