I am Student from an university in North East. I had a bad habit of coding in a language, just by seeing examples and browsing/googling syntax online, thats how I completed most of my assignments, but better late than never, I realized that this is a problem, when you go into research, where you need to think in terms of language and understand the underlying mechanisms to become a better coder, which is what after all, I am striving for. Anyways, I think I will learn more here, than I could ever contribute.

comment How to manage long term projects?
As I said, I always sailed with my talent. I highly doubt that there will be one single instance where I demonstrated attitude/persistence/perseverance. But, I need to push myself to go to the next level. Next 6 months will be the challenging for me. I look forward to it, at the same time, kinda worried(that helps actually). I might have never demonstrated persistence/perseverance before, but I have encountered such situations and either skipped or failed. I am not ashamed to tell this, because, one way of learning is not to hide ignorance. Please advise.

My nature of work is programming and research. I am a masters student graduating in December. I am almost complete with my project. Going to express my interest to convert it into thesis. I will be doing an internship for the summer, which will require 40 hours per week. I am kind of worried about the double work, I am going to do. I wanted to go into research field/PHD. I need a thesis, at the same time I need to support myself for next 6 months. Hence, I have to go to internship(but the projects I will be working on will be on the same platform as my thesis, (C/C++/UNIX).
