Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Any ambitions I have are merely vehicles for my final goal of being able to spend all day doing whatever the fuck I please.

    You know I was thinking of a way to word what was going through my head and you pretty much nailed it right there.

    I have a talent for laying things on the line.

    You mean you have a talent for furthering your final goal of doing whatever the fuck you please by laying things on the line.

    you know, sometimes you feel like you're so far away from the place you want to be, the place you've been trying to get to for so long

    like you're slowly drifting away and the work you've done is becoming less and less relevant by the hour

    and then there are the times when you check the results of your uni work and find out you fucking aced it and realise you've now finished all your coursework in a masters degree and maybe you're closer than you've ever been before

    oh man those times are great i can tell you now

    Where are you going?

    When were you planning on telling me about this little excursion?!

    I fell asleep. Anyway
    I am going to work for Concordia Language Villages.

    I used to want to be a writer. Probably novels.

    Now, I work from home.

    My future ambition is to be a freelance writer and only have at home work so I can go anywhere anytime when needed, and also so I can still do 8 hour sessions of video game playing. I have a good shot at getting there.

    The more I think about it, the more I think I could probably become a half-way decent author if I ever gave it a shot.

    I really want a job where I can work from a home office, take care of a couple awesome kids and have a nice house with a big gaming room where I can work on cool hobbies and stuff, with a couple arcade cabinets and a pinball machine or two.

    Like, that's pretty much what I've been working toward for the past ten years.

    I need enough money to support my classic car buying/restoring hobby. Any other ambition that I might have is secondary to this.

    man it kind of annoys me when people are all 'i always wanted to be a writer some day and i probably still will in between doing all these other things'

    if you want to do it, do it properly. it's not that hard but it means writing a lot and going to workshops all the time and using great resources like the one in this very forum that everyone seems to ignore

    I've found that I'm a lot more creative and get more done if I can have at least 4 hours of gaming in the mix each day. When I'm off work, of course. Though I also sometimes suffer from Oh-I'm-tired-of-recording-this-shit-I'm-gonna-play-some-CS-for-a-bit-oh shit-CS-is-boring-I-want-to-write-something-more-syndrome. Back and forth all day not getting shit done.

    i wanted to be a paleontologist at one point too

    Scratch up another one for wanting to be a palaeontologists in childhood. That guy from Jurassic park was my first childhood idol, so bad ass.

    Nowadays hell if I know. The middle class lifestyle with a job I enjoy and some free time would keep me contented.

    I'm thinking about going to grad school for Library Science someday.

    I think being a librarian would be an extremely awesome job.

    The only Library I'd work in is a video library.

    "Dewey, you fool! Your decimal system has played right into my hands!"

    Thanks a lot for dooming us to slave rule under the brain people librarians.
