Game developer.
I was pretty sure that game development had to be the best job on the planet, EVER!
Waking up in the morning and thinking: "Yeah, i'm gonna put [feature] into the game, it's gonna be awesome". And then you pressed some buttons and the feature magically appeared inside the game. Then you tested the game (aka. just playing video games). Simpler times.

 

In reality:
Video game developer:
- Being whipped by the creative team who tells you to write a code to include feature in the game.
- Code doesn't work.
- Spent days looking through thousand lines of code until you find a syntax error.
- Get sh*t from superiors because you didn't hit the deadline.
- Cry in sleep.

 

Video game tester:
- Be locked inside a room from 8-16.
- Be given a very buggy version of the game and be told to jump into the exact same walls ten-thousand times.
- Report to developers if bug occours 1 out of all tries when jumping into the wall.
- Can't talk to other people about the game you're testing since this would be against your contract and doing so would get you fired or sued.
- Cry in sleep.

I have always wanted to be a pilot. But that's way out of reach for me.

 

Now I dream about working on a movie set, with films and series like Game of Thrones and such. It would have been awesome to work with the horses and the costumes they wear, location scouting or script..
One of my dreams is being a 3d modeller for a big game company like R* :)

Some sort of scientist.

 

I want to expand humanities knowledge of how the world works. I want to help people see the beauty in what lies beyond, inside, and hidden from what we see.

As a kid I always wanted to be an astronaut, then pilot, and then later, a lifeguard for some reason. I blame Baywatch.

I still want to be a pilot though. I live just a couple of minutes away from a small airport, so I should really do something about it and go for flying lessons... sometime...

Ballerina, nurse, Broadway star, rock star, journalist, concept artist, director, screenwriter, lawyer, teacher.

 

Some of these are more recent than I'd like to admit.

 

I sold luxury yacht glazing for a while, and now I'm a library assistant. Which suits me just fine, as dull as it may sound on paper. I've had this long time big dream of being published, but that's what it is - a dream. It's something I want to take a stab at so I can feel like I've done something with my life. I don't expect to get rich and famous off the back of it.

Well since my current age (16) counts as a kid in everyone's minds, I guess I can tell both my current and toddler-age (or rather elementary school, oh well) things.

 

When I was in elementary, I dreamed about becoming a fire fighter. For some reason it felt cool. I remember the entire class bursting into laughter when I told it. Lifelong traumas are excellent... well not really. But back then I felt a bit embarrassed just for the reason everyone laughed. Including the teacher.

 

So you wish to acquire knowledge in what is my current dream? English-talking voice actor/actor.

I figured that since games and movies are close to my heart and I... well, let's just say that I am okay in the English language as a person whose primary language is not English. It is not even a Germanic language like English, but instead Uralic. (Yes, it is Finnish. How did you know? Oh you saw my location in my profile? Damn stalker.)

 

Either way it is that. I know it could be hard to achieve. But I guess it could, note, could be fun. I do not possess any traits to success in my goal, more like the opposite (introverted, silent... unattractive) but I guess you have to believe and have a dream, otherwise you will not achieve anything.

 

Also I'd be more interested in being a voice actor for primarily games (see: Nolan North). Yeah, in animations or such it could also be interesting, but primarily in games. It doesn't matter whether the game or movie or series was bad. If it was, it is no problem because from there, only way to go would be up or at same level. :)

It just annoys me when people talk about how they are bored. Dude, there is a billion things to see and do. Just look up to the sky, or look inside your body at the wonderful complexity that is your brain, or muscles. It's all beautiful!

 

But yes, I probably will hold of on the acid, brah.

When I was a kid, I wanted to be a video game designer, but I lost interest in that.

 

Early last year, I still thought I wanted to be a veterinary assistant since I love animals, but once I got a taste of what the job is like I realized it wasn't the career for me. Now, I'm not the weepy cries about everything type of girl, but let me tell you, watching an animal get euthanized is heartbreaking. There's no way I could deal with that on a regular basis.

 

Next week, I'll be starting technical school, specializing in electrical construction and maintenance. I've always like maintenance type jobs, and electricians make good money. Plus, there will always be a need for them so I won't have to worry about being unable to find a job.

When I was a kid, I wanted to be historian, archaeologist and philosopher. However, at the age of 11, I changed the opinion, I began to want to be famous Lithuanian rapper.

I've already grown up. It sucks. I want to be a kid again. 

 

Having no responsibilities beyond cleaning up your room and occasionally taking out the trash or doing dishes? Never having to pay the bills, or buy your own food, or pay to run a car, or...

 

Yeah, being an adult sucks, no matter what job you've got.

I am still a kid and I want to become a writer. I'm a pretty good writer, for a 13 year old at least. Been writing since I was like 8. I like to write Poems and stories, my parents and pretty much everyone around me, have always said that my writing skill is very good and quite rare for someone of my age.

 

When I was smaller, I always wanted to become a scientist for some reason but then the idea faded away. I don't know why, though.

I always wanted to become a commercial pilot, but that went to sh*t, and after that my hopes and dreams of a dream job quickly went down the drain. Still aiming to get my private pilot license one day though, so I can at the very least fly some sort of aircraft.

I really wanted to be a McDonald's fry cook as a child. Unfortunately, I'm stuck with this sh*tty job of being a law firm partner. Sometimes life just doesn't work out the way you want. :/

In a few more years, I plan to be an auto mechanic. I know a lot about cars, and love working on them.

I'm in a high school class right now that lets us work on cars. I don't know, I love cars but the class is not that interesting. Maybe because we get a lot of ugly/dirty looking American cars from when they were rubbish(late 80's to mid 00's) instead of cleaner, newer cars. But then again being a mechanic is my least favorite subject about vehicles.

OT: I wanted to be a huge car enthusiast when I was younger and be rich enough to own all of my favorite cars. Well that cannot happen, unless I ever get rich.

What's more realistic is owning some of my current favorite cars when their prices drop like crazy.
