What do you want to be when you grow up?

Postby tgfcoder » January 21st, 2015, 12:08 am

Or, if you're already grown up, what did you aspire to be as a kid?

I wanted to be a game developer. I still do that as a hobby... found out the industry wasn't really where I wanted to be. Stressful, not as stable as I'd liked, and it's kind of a political mess right now. Anyway, I found a software engineering job that stimulates me and I can see myself doing this for a long time ;haha

Stupid question that adults always ask kids but really when you're young you have the most power to influence and shape your future. How about you guys?

Interesting!
When I was younger I wanted to be an animator to make cartoons and things because I used to draw a lot. As I got older I just sorta stopped drawing for a while and my twin sister started to draw. She's now going to school as an animation major and has interned at a place that works on Venture Bros. on Adult Swim. That's so bizarre and awesome to me.

As for me I don't think I have a set path yet, but I'm going down the computer science road. I'm hopping to develop some cool phone apps or maybe invent a product using code. I don't have much experience in the field, I'm still in college.

I wanna do something under the programming field, still not sure where I want to go.
Game design looks interesting, but short-lived.
I'll probably go into something in the software side, probably for computer or some kind of mobile platform.
I really wanna do AR work, if technology advances that far.

I've always wanted to take care of animals.
Basically, being a vet's assistant or so.
But I honestly don't think I will make it that far. >__<

When I was little, I use to really want to be a firefighter. As I went into high school, I got more into Culinary, but there wasn't anywhere near by (without moving out--and that wasn't an option lol) where I could do just earn my degree and be a pâtissier (pastry chef). I still want to do that, but ended up in getting my associates degree in medical assisting since, my parents both were in the medical field and it was something easy/something I was familiar with.

When I was younger I really wanted to do something that would help elderly or to be able to design machines. Two very different fields and now some odd year later I was in high school and learned I didn't really want to go into either of those fields and that I really wanted to do something that would involve traveling and business, so hence I will be going to college to major in International Business and minor in programming. (or something with designing)

I wanted to be an english translator to be honest. Sounds a little boring but I always enjoyed listening to people speak english and I also wanted to help the people who would visit our country who didn't know how to speak spanish and were in trouble and help them out. I ended up studying Statistics... but whenever I see someone who is struggling because of the language barrier I try to step in and help them out as much as I can.
