Sure is you can even make websites for people and get some cash, that should be a good motivation.

I am running a website which is dixcuxx.com, have been pretty successful for me, but that is not really 100% created by me since I use forum package to do so. I actually always have ideas what to make, but I am so lazy after work...so bad.

That looks really good. It kinda reminds me of a Newegg themed forum.

I feel the same way but I stop programming because I couldn't turn my brain off at night. I would lay there and dream about code. But this had a added benefit that I came aware in my dreams.
So if i need something coded, I pay dudes in Asia to do the programming, and boy can I say there are cheap. Haha

Thats not just your city. Even here anyone in IT whether your a help desk tech or a certified CCIE, gets treated like complete garbage. As far as most end users / not IT managers are concerned your at the same level as the guy who came in to fix the clogged toilet in the bathroom. Good luck getting the respect.

if you didnt like to do it from the beginning then you will never love it, haha.

maybe you should change the type of coding you are doing and see it its just the fact that the work sucks and you need to spark some interest.

Being totally honest.

I go to school for it.. and I have found that I go one of two ways.

A. I have HORRIBLE issues trying to motivate myself to do various projects. It is really pointless to make a pre-existing program you can find in under 5 minutes of googling. So psychologically, I know its pointless.

B. When given a project, I find myself absolutely loving it. There is a problem I need to solve it. I am very thankful the one project course where I have to come up with my own project is over.. I have a much easier time developing programs when I see a need, or am tasked with doing it.

The problem I have, is I don't get as much experience, because I have trouble finding things to program outside of school.

After talking with one of the guys doing the Cyanogen Mod 7 mod for the captivate, which is a complete conversion of the open source code google developed for the nexus s being ported over to the captivate...

I don't feel *as* bad about it, because the guy is a full blown software engineer and I in the next year will just be getting to classes which are more determining factors in where I go with a programming career.

I will go ahead and suggest project euler.

It gives some problems to solve which help get you thinking about things a bit more mathematically.

I am trying to get into android programming.. it doesn't help that it is summer.

One major issue.. is if you find you don't really ever highly enjoy it, there is nothing wrong with doing something else..

Unless you enjoy being "Artist", "Thinker", "Linguist", Couch Potato", and willing to work looooong hours all in the same time, forget being a programmer.

Artist: you need to know designs, patterns, usability, coding styles, etc (these include programming languages, databases, etc).

Thinker: problem solving will drive you mad, you go home to your wife and kids, and your head is filled on how to solve this specific problems, and you are itching to try and solve it at home, which will drive your wife to other men arms.....

Linguist: documentations (especially frameworks), books (thousand of pages), new programming languages, client interaction, these will drive you mad soon enough. Eye strain and glasses usually accompanies, and fast reading skill is a must.

Couch potato: almost self explanatory, you will need to sit in front of the computer a long long time. Project is looming on the horizon? expect no sleep and erratic sleep schedule.

Building architect only needs to know design and structural engineering. Civil engineer only need to act on the design from the architect, and structural engineering knowledge. On the other hand, programmer need to know the design, the implementation, the documentation, and you responsible whether the program is running or not. They will blame you for crash, incomplete documentation, bad design, bad implementation, unreadable code, natural disaster, security holes, end user confusion on how to use, low sales because it's not attractive or useful, missed deadline, client anger on how much it cost to implement, your boss anger because he missed golf with the director of the company because he accidentally delete database, and anything you can think

programmer is really a thankless job lol --_--

Yeah the coding itself is mechanical, but if you apply your own idea and build something, then it is much more than just mechanical work.
