    Sorry, no, I'm too lazy to put anything in the net. Meh, maybe I finally should.
    I 'specialize' in sidescroller music. :p

    Well, if it makes you feel any better, Nakia, I've always thought of you as a space cadet. (Much like myself.)

    Are we talking dream job, or realistic job? I wanted to be an archaelogist, but that was never going to be a practical lifestyle, so now I work in an office within easy commute from home via a bus.

    When I was a kid, I always dreamt about being a fighter pilot.

    Then I developed short-sightedness, and poof! There went my childhood dreams..

    Still, it's not all bad. I always had an interest in computers and now I'm starting on a career as a programmer. I don't think I'd mind doing it for some time, or maybe do something related to computer networks.

    [​IMG] When I was little I wanted to be a teacher, but my teacher in Year 2 told me not to bother as it was just going to be a waste of time :lol:

    My dream for the past few years has been to work in computer games programming and design. I already design my own games and have about 14 half finished design documents and notes.

    Failing getting into the games industry I guess a software programmer in any field will suit me :) As long as I get to work with AI, I would love it :D

    I wanted to be a doctor. Not GP type, but working for a company like WHO, or CDC, to fight outbreaks and control diseases.

    I'd like to be a Vocational Guidance Councelor.

    Splunge: I think I can say, without fear of contradiction, that the ideal job for you is chartered accountancy.... :)

    Your local specialist/consultant/chief-in-charge. Not difficult to achieve, since I'm currently viewing one of these positions :D

    I'm probably going to be a programmer. I hope to outgrow the simple website stuff and do some AI/High Technology programming in Lisp and Erlang.

    The village idiot of my hometown. Just have to remember not to apply for the job when they start searching for a new one. :p

    More seriously I haven't got the slightest of idea. A job in the financial department or department of foreign affairs would both be quite ideal, but on a more realistic note I'm heading towards financial management of the public sector probably on the municipal level.

    I would love to restore old cars for a living but with the price of gas nowadays it wouldn't pay nearly as well as it used to.

    I would love to be a councillor or psychologist, but I reckon my career path is set on Dispensing Optician indefinately now. I'll always be a child though ;)
