The other night I was watching a tv show (Crime Watch) and was thinking what I wanted to do when i'm older. I thought along the lines of Mc Donalds employee but then I thought, Doorstop, it's perfect! I get to sit around all day and if someon says that i'm not working i can say i'm holding this door open!

But seriously I want to write boooks fror children (not ugly ones though, they can read a dictionary)

I was wondering what everyone else wanted to do, so I thought i'd ask


WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO??

A teacher and a composer. Or maybe I'll have my own little concertino and we shall travel the world writing little pieces for us to play. I also plan on joining the army on a specialised job as a band member. But, I don't agree with some of the wars and if there aren't enough troops, we shall be needed to go into combat and I'm not prepared to fight in a war I don't agree with. But hopefully something musical.

So you'd disalow 'ugly' chiildren from reading your books? What if you had 'ugly' children?

I'd like to do something arty with kids I think. Or at least that's what I have planned.

I'm well on my to becoming a theatre director/producer. Or if I keep at this studying lark I can become a psychologist instead *shrug*.

Right now, reading this thread, it gives me the urge to become a hired killer through the internet.

You know...a lot of us are actually "older" and to the point where we're actually doing what we planned to do, or are almost to that point.

That being said, though, I only have one more year of university left and I've no idea what I want to do with my life. I've thought about being a counsellor in the past, but I really don't know. I should figure that out at some point.

I want to make movies. I want these movies to reflect how I really think and really feel. I want them to be funny when appropriate. I like the idea of making films that are vulgar, offensive and/or controversial. To clarify: Vulgar, to me, means bad words and content. This may include blood, gore and violence. I _hate_ the idea of having nudity in my movies. It's too cheap, even for me. Offensive is relative, but I'd like to entertain in a very blunt manner that many people wouldn't like. Same goes for controversial. I like the idea of rocking the boat a little. I don't see myself as a guy who will take the blinders off of the whole world, but I'd like to think I'll make someone think.

I like the idea of doing comedies, but I'd love to do an action film based on the intellectual properties co-owned by me and my brother (particularly the post-Apocalyptic The Resistance) or an animated movie with Oriku Ronin, the Skateboard Samurai (sort of Princess Mononoke style with skating, in-lining, BMXing and bad words).

I don't get where you're coming from on this. You want your film to be perfect according to your philosophy yet you'd stunt your creativity if it meant avoiding having nudity in the film. Because clearly nudity can never be artistic or appropriate. Look at how many pieces of art involve nudity, are they cheap?

Sure, by all means don't turn your films into cheap porn but don't comprimise your creativity for some halfwitted generalisation.

In addition to this how is nudity less cheap than what you said about wanting to be vulglar, offensive and violent? If it makes a point then it's all good - art should not be judged against morals - but if it's purely there to stir up controversy then that's just as cheap as you say using nudity in your film would be.

Back on topic, my top 2 career areas would be:

- Games Programming (I've been programming for years, am good at it and still enjoy it. I enjoy games too and have plenty of ideas. I'm really into the idea of indy games design with a small independant team. Games companies at the moment run their employees into the ground and I would hate to be part of the corporate media machine and all that horrible cliche but occasionally true crap.)
- Web Design (Which I have done before and have plenty of experience in. Probably freelance. The only downer is that bringing other peoples ideas to life isn't anywhere neas as fun as working on your own ideas.)

To begin with I wanted to be a deep-sea diver. Then I read about giant squid and that put me off that idea.

Then for a long time I wanted to work for Jim Henson or maybe to be an animator. Then Jim Henson died.

Then I wanted to work for Brian Henson. Then I realised that the chances of that happening were remote at best, so I tried to get into animation.

Then I realised I couldn't really afford or get the equipment.

Then I was a bit stuck.

Then computers began to catch up with being able to do all the things I'd always thought that they should be able to do, and I became an animator after all. Hurrah!

The PhD in cyberpunk is just for bonus points from my inner-15-year-old.

EDIT: I think Ri means he doesn't want to make films where women flash their chest just so that boys/men will want to watch it.

Then we learn the lesson that over generalisation gets you a long angry rant or worse. smile.gif
(though the nudity bit wasn't the only point I made)

No, he wants to make films where people slash each other to bits with the aid of screamed profanity, just so that boys/men will want to watch it.

EDIT: I don't really know what I'm going to do immediately after leaving university. I'll probably do a Masters if I can after my BA, but beyond that, I don't know. Ultimately, I'd like to get properly involved in politics at some level, but I'd perhaps like to go into journalism before then. To be honest, I take whatever opportunities present themselves, so I could end up as any number of things.

That's a bit stereotypical. I'm a girl and I enjoy lots of violence as do many of my friends (I think).

I think that if I want to be a teacher and a composer/musician at the same time, I can be a piano teacher! smile.gif

Actually you're in a unique position. You can choose what job you really want to do and go for it... In which case I'll make sure to prime the cannons next time I go sailing (which, on the statistical evidence of my life so far, will probably not be for a fair while yet).

I suppose I will end up getting a PhD and teaching (social anthropology or German), preferrably at the college level. Although I'd like to do some sort of field work before that.

Ideally, though, I'd like to get a PhD in something hopelessly obscure, go forth and live alone in the woods writing angry political essays and eating leaves. tongue.gif

But in all seriousness, folks, I'd love to be a writer and music composer. I fully intend on double majoring in the two in college and eventually working in the film/Broadway/video game industry. Such fun shall my life be!

Two things I wanted to be when I was *younger* 1) A teacher- Been there done that 2) A singer. This is my ultimate dream and if I have to wait until I'm 93 I will do this. I'm currently 24 so life is becoming stopped
