Now I'd like to think that all of your are nothing more but programmed AI who posts here for my amusement, but that would be delusional.
So, anyone preparing for Uni? What do you wish to study there?
Older users, how many millions did you make this year?
Personally I'd like to be an astronaut but I ain't short enough :(
No. I don't exactly like being the center of attention. Why?
It just seemed to fit with the rest of the package.
What do you mean by 'Risky professions'?
As in they are hard to get into. You can create something great but there is huge competition.
Requires a lot of luck.
Well, I've already started quite well with all three.
<- My profile pic. is something I did myself.
<- My stories like 'Hell Storm' are off to a great start if only I could get enough motivation to continue.
-I also have composed two music pieces on the piano. They both could definitely use some work still, but it's still more than nearly every other kid my age.
Nice to see that you're talented and all, but that (unfortunately) that doesn't get you far in this world :(
Eh. All I want is to leave something behind that will be remembered, or actually mean something.
Political assassinations are usually remembered, but I wouldn't advice you to commit one.
I meant something positive and simple.
An assassination can be both, especially a political one.
I want to stay out of political stuff. It's all frauds and fakes and power-hungry rich people. As long as it doesn't effect me personally, I don't care what they do.
>It's all frauds and fakes and power-hungry rich people
That's my point.
But we should stop before I get v8
'v8'? I can't tell if that's some sort of emotion or what. Care to explain it?
v8 = vanned
As in a federal van will come and take me.
Why would that happen?
It's a joke :(
Oh. I'm not all that good at detecting jokes over the internet. '>_> Sorry.
You are forgiven.
Being gay helps to.
Son of a- Those are my ideas! XD Though instead of an author, I was thinking a writer for things like TV shows and stuff. Music composition is awesome, and I like drawing in my free time. Basically the arts and entertainment.
Composing as in music?
Do you have anything uploaded?
Yeah, music, but no, nothing online.
Well, that sucks.
Does, doesn't it? I have a lot of works in progress, but it's so difficult for me to consider anything fit to share.
What do you play?
Or is it PC music?
Digital composition, so I've got at least some skill on the MIDI keyboard.
Interesting. How long have you been going at it?
I've been thinking about starting getting into digital songs for some time now, but not MIDI. More of remixes, but I have no idea where to start + I'm lazy as f
Seven years, at least. I started with Sony Acid, and currently, I use Studio One, but I've heard that FL Studio is good for remixes.
Thanks for the suggestions.
Damn 7 years, I admire your patience. I can't focus on something for 7 days.
Hopefully go to Uni in a couple of years. Get an Economics degree.
What do you mean?
I mean that a degree on economics seems generic since Economy is a vast field.
I'll probably do a BSc because I'm good at Maths. There are jobs in Economics so it's a safe bet.
Meh, dunno how degrees are called in 'Murika, but if you say so.
I'm also going in the economical field do, but at a completely different bit.
I'm British, lol.
What are you doing?
You must be so fun at parties...
People with promising jobs tend to be.
The life and soul, mate.
Author/Actor/Movie Critic (if I get to have the popcorn!)/Artist
Musician is a big one for me, I've planned to start a band with four of my friends when we start uni, but that's just a dream. I also compose a lot of music, both classical and modern.
I would also love to become an author, but I'm afraid my plotlines are often cliche. I've written a few books, but none have really made me feel like I would be comfortable sending them out to be potentially published yet.
I'm going to university in a couple of years, so I'll probably do a Music degree or something.
Why wait till uni to start a band?
Two of them live in Cairns. They're coming to my town for uni so we have to wait until then. For now, we're making plans and practising solo. Plus writing songs.
Teacher. I've wanted to be one my entire life.
That's a noble profession, IMHO.
*nods* Thanks bro.
Sounds boring to me.
Unless you become a Uni proffessor and blackmail hot hoes to bang you so they'll get their degree.
Now that's noble.
"I am sir Horace, Slayer of the Mighty Pussaaaaay"
Pizza delivery girl.
Dunno, maybe game programmer/designer/planner. That or I'm getting a donut shop.
I'd go with the latter.
I guess it's always good to have a backup.
Ok we get it, ya wanna be a doc.
> be me
> have lots of lawyers in family, including parents
> probably going to be a lawyer
Well since you have the road built for you it would be stupid not to walk it. Unless you hate it :P
I'm doing a year in military reserves and seeing how I like it, otherwise I want to run a small buisness online and sell a few books maybe.
I'd say it would be waste for you to join the military, but I doubt that you'd listen (or should listen) to Internet strangers. :P
Why would it be a waste?
Ohh, no reason.
How would we ever get Dispiteous 2: The Extra Gory and Incesty Sequel?
They take yucky gooey girls in the military?
They prefer them to yuckey gooey boys.
supa hot fia has been spat.
I ask the same question of you.
Excuse me for the crapily stated question.
I legitely wish to know at which posts women can serve in the US military.
"n 1994 the Department of Defense officially banned women from serving in combat, but, on January 24, 2013, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta removed the military's ban on women serving in combat."
That means they can serve, Drako.
Pfft, as if dem hoes can match up my game.
Even if women weren't allowed in US military positions, I'm more concerned about the Australian Army since that's where I'll be enrolling.
Well I just assumed...
Australia has a military?
Yes it does.
You learn something new everyday.
when I grow up, I want to be China Mieville. ^_^
You wish to be a country?
Now that's ambitious.
Let me Google that for you.
I still haven't made up my mind. . . But after college, maybe I'll start as a writer or an architect. Those are two biggest options for me.
Writing is my passion but I feel like Architecture is definitely interesting.
Architecture needs a degree.
Writing can be a (profitable) hobby.
Yep, that could be good. I'll take up architecture in college while continuing to write on my own as a hobby.
Really? No programming shit? No grand plan of hunting and wiping out all CICADA? I'm dissapoint.
How are chemists and historians connected?
You seem to have it all worked out.
Fuck, I thought you were already in uni.
Maybe going the Author lifestyle would be better...The manga author lifestyle :P
I've wanted to be a psychotherapist ever since first grade.
Astronaut, author or archeologist.
The three A's
High expectations I see.
When I told my friend about it, she just stared at me.
"Well of course I'm going to have a real job too!" I had to say.
That real job would probably be radio.
Why do you want to be a gamer? Seems sort of like a degenerate lifestyle.
I like games. Of course I could be a YouTuber about something else, I guess I wouldn't mind too much...
But I consider myself a gamer.
Even if CYS is taking more time than games these days.
I am on here 24/7!!!!!!!!! From now on
That might not be good for your health... just sayin'.
I do it mostly, and I'm completely fine!
*Turns around and goes into coughing fit*
It might look like I'm on 24/7 because I don't bother logging out, but I'm more decent than that- I'm only on 23/7.
Or sometimes 23.5/7.
I may not be on 24/7, but I go to sleep around 2:00 in the morning. I only sleep about four hours after that. I spend an hour eating, an hour playing video games, and 85 percent of the remaining day on CYS. The other 15 percent is eating and playing video games.
That YouTube money. $$$
Getting paied for screaming at a camera and making dick jokes while playing the same game 500 times.
Why would anyone NOT want to do that?
I'd do it, for sure. Being paid to play video games, act like a spazz, and be inexplicably famous to millions of total strangers would be an awesome job.
The fact of the matter is, you don't survive unless you're inexplicably famous to millions of total strangers. You only get 5 cents or so if somebody clicks on an ad in your video, (And everyone knows that the only reason anyone actually clicks on that shit is because they're busy fumbling around on their phone and accidentally hit the advertiser's name.) and you'll maybe make some real money if you somehow convince your mostly 10 year old audience to convince their mostly uninformed parents to pay for a subscription. On a time to money ratio, I'm pretty sure your average Let's Player barely makes minimum wage.
I'd like to be a game designer but if that doesn't work out, journalism. And maybe livestream as a side source of income?
I didn't make any millions.
... To be honest, I'd really like to make more games and stories. Not ... just here, you understand, and not just for free. I enjoy entertaining people. I like writing adventures and creating characters and building worlds. I wish I could do it more often. Granted, I like saving peoples' lives, too. xD ... It's just that the legal crap and office politics piss me off, and the stress is obviously taking a toll on me.
When I was younger, I really loved the idea of acting. Voice acting. I liked the idea of being famous without having to be in the public eye and that way, people didn't see -me-, people saw whatever badass character I was pretending to be. Just like Dan Green isn't Dan Green to a lot of anime fans, he's Kyo, or Yami, or Knuckles the Echidna.
I'm also a decent singer and I love music, so I wanted to go that route for a while, but I've never really had any faith in myself as a performer. Neither did anyone else, really. I was told I had pipes, but even though I wanted to get singing lessons and try to get ... somewhere, I needed help that I just never got. Before I knew it, I was getting side jobs to help my mom pay bills while teaching my little sister how to read ... life got busy and my dreams started to seem really childish. *shrug*
Who cares if a dream is childish? :D Chase it anyway. Even if it grabs all of your neat, lil', organized future plans, tosses them out the window going "wheeeee~" and runs away again, laughing maniacally. Actually, especially then. XD
Of course, saving people's lives is good too....
For some reason, I want to start calling you Mr. Farren....
I did. For a very long time. I wanted to be "grown up" and "responsible" and "reliable" so I could take care of the people around me better. But, I've come to terms with the fact that you don't have to give up on your childhood to embrace being an adult. xD Hehe, I do believe that scenario sounds familiar ...
Yeah. To be honest, I think I feel guilty at the idea of wanting to be or do something else--but if that were my only reason for staying, it'd be a pretty stupid reason.
It should be quite familiar!
"In the words of the fabulous and attractive Kiel_Farren:
"But you see ... I have no control over where my imagination wanders to, so while I'm trying to finish something over here, my imagination is frollicking in another chapter all the way over there. And I'm standing there going "Wait, stahp, come baaaaack! We need to work on this...!" And then it runs back, grabs all of my neat, lil', organized story plans, tosses them out the window going "wheeeee~" and runs away again, laughing maniacally.""
Taco I think you need an intervention haha.
Relax, Tans, no need to put someone in rehab for a joke. :P That's a quote off of someone's profile page that Taco swiped a long time ago, presumably because it amused her to see me talking like a lunatic. She didn't add the (most likely joking) blurb about me above it, some odd guy named 3173v3 did.
(Before you ask--like a few other people did--no, it's not Tev, and no, it's not me. He's somebody's alt, but he wouldn't tell anyone who. Maybe it's Sentinel, he's the only other person on here who's called me attractive.)
You have posted pics of you?
Oh, hell-fucking-no. xD No one here has ever seen my face--except my sister, granted.
Like I said, it's probably just a joke. (And Sentinel only said that because he imagines people as their avatar.)
Odd, Sentinel never stroke me as the one to go after hooded wizards... not that there is anything wrong with that.
Lol, this wasn't always my avatar--granted, Jace isn't a bad looking guy...
I wouldn't particularly want to have his face, though. The tattoos (or whatever they are) are a bit much.
I've always seen your avatar as a wall of the castle from the ninja level in Spyro: Year of the Dragon.
Yet it's someone admiring aurora borealis.
Spyro is kewl, so thanks I guess? lol
Are there Northen Lights in the ninja level? I only played one PS2 Spyro game so dunno.
I don't recall so... I just thought that green thing was magic or something.
(imagines people as their avatar... *looks at my profile pic* oh god...)
I am totally not a sentient dog, everyone. http://disneychannel.disney.com/dog-with-a-blog
I ... never assumed you were.
I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE! *rips off fake human face* *barks, whimpers*
*looks up with those irresistible cute eyes*
Okay, screw it. *rips off fake dog face*
xD You're strange, but then, so are a lot of people here, which is why I feel at home. *pats your head*
*sits, stays, pees on tree*
No!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You ruined my endangered Money Tree!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There were only THREE LEFT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now there is only two!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! One with Donald Trump and one one with an unknown owner!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Such surprise. So sentient doge. Much crazy.
Also, yeah, Taco. I knew what you were referencing ... granted, the only reason I even remember it at all is because of the guy you got the quote from reminding me that I even said it and the times I've visited your profile, but still.
... And please, don't call me Mr. Farren. xD Weeaboo titles from my friends is one thing, having you address me with more formality than my assistants at work is just weird.
I'm genuinely disapointed by the lack of milionares in this site :/
Being a doctor is cool though I guess :P
Seriously now, voice acting can't be that heard to get into.
I doubt most voice actors do just that as a primary job anyway.
Let's change that.
Interested in making an investment?
Attorney. 'Nuf said.
I'd say "writer", but nobody's ever seemed to do it well and successfully without dying or otherwise being seriously damaged. Stephen King snorted half of Columbia, pretty much all of the Pulitzer winners are alcoholics, the one guy I can name that didn't really have drug problems was H.P. Lovecraft, and he literally starved to death because the money was shit. Poe got the shitty end of the deal too. Not only did he ony earn $12, but he was an alcoholic too. And then there's all the suicide and depressing shit that comes with having this low-paying-ass job and all the high pressure that comes with it.
Will I write books and things for money sometime? Probably, yes. I'd love to, but I'll be damned if that's the thing I'm going to bet my life on. I'll probably do work in horticulture on the side.
Lovecraft didn't die of starvation, he died of cancer in the small intestine.
I know that, but if the cancer didn't get him first, he was in the process of starving to death anyway. They found out that he was suffering from some pretty bad malnutrition that might have contributed to his death. Either way, he had to resort to some ghostwriting near the end, which is pretty much the literary equivalent of working the streets because your financial stability is royally fucked.
J.K.'s Rowling in dough though.
I said doing it well, Tans. Jk, I guess Harry Potter's good, but it's kind of like the Quake 2 of books: It's never really been my cup of tea, and it inspired businesses to support/create a slew of overly long sellout series that I don't like either.
Agreed haha. Not a fan either.
The first Quake was great though, so I guess Q1 would be like the Dungeons and Dragons handbook or something else wizardy that came before Harry.
I think it's a tie between being a writer or being a musician.
All I want to do is work in a factory and move boxes from one place to another.
I thought of South Park :(
I pretty much had a crisis with myself after this episode (and after most livestreams). Wasting hours of my life for box-moving xD. But then again, I can't bring myself to unsubscribe.
Right now I'm a Latin teacher, but I'm studying programming too. Hope to one day be a video game designer or something, but for right now, I'd settle for a user-friendly gradebook program.
The thread should be renamed "what do you do/plan to do for a living" since everyone literally started talking about their dreams.
I'm started training to become a scuba diver and I'm going to train to become a master at it, also I am studying for a media production degree. I want to combine the two together and become a wildlife cameraman for marine life. I know its sounds like a hard thing to do but I'm not going to let anything get in the way of me becoming a pokemon master... er I mean marine cameraman.
Still.... I'm not sure about it. I'll just grow older and try to find the job that I like and good at.
My dream is to be a film director (as well as an editor/screenwriter/composer), but I also write songs, have written a novel (unpublished) and I have a lot of interest in being an artist as well. So I'll probably never be successful in any one of these things, because I can't decide what to focus on. I'm far too scatterbrained lol...and far too poor.
Hey, welcome back!
Thanks! Glad to be back. How have you been?
Good, thanks. How have you been keeping up?
Not much has happened in Cystia. I highly recommend you play "Suzy's Strange Saga", EndMaster's new story (it was released about a month ago).
I've just been job-hunting recently, without much luck I'm afraid, but thanks for asking.
I've never actually been to Cystia, may I ask what it's like there? And thanks for the recommendation, I just played it to death!
Oh my. I thought Drako's balls had dropped!
Wut who and why?
He's Honor4Ever. You remember your best pal, right?
That's right. I'm back to go at Drako's vampire fangs! and greatly irritate you like intercourse Bangs!
Nice to see you are alive to.
Man, I thought you left.
You got a Gangsta ass name
Remember WarriorsRPStories? At_Your_Throat is her new account.
I know that, but I thought that Honor out of all people would know about my balls.
You mean your vagina?
Author! Anime artist! Stay at home mom!
...Stay at home mom?
*sigh* How do you expect to get money, milk it from your future husband? What if you never get married? What if you get a divorce? How will you support your child or children?
