    What would be your ideal job? Not really a dream job, but something realistic you plan on doing in the future or would like to do in the future.

    I'd like to be a programmer, working on something interesting. I don't really aspire to be like a master programmer who single-handedly writes insanely cool software, but good enough that I could work on interesting things without finding it especially difficult.

    yea, too bad it doesnt make much sense


    "i want to work on interesting things...... but i don't want it to be difficult because i am not a master programmer.... but if it's difficult i won't find it it that difficult"

    :rolleyes:

    Take a second to actually read what he wrote. You'll find your quote isn't correct. I have no problem understanding what he said. All he's saying is that he wants to be a good programmer who doesn't find his work difficult because of his quality skills. An interesting project doesn't mean a very difficult one.

    :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

    Yeah, you're the one to talk about people being lazy. :fawk:

    I'm not really sure what it is anymore. I love to write code and I hope to do so 8-10 hours a day in the next few years, but I'm not sure I'd like to do it for the next 20-30 years anymore. Also, I'm not really sure on my settings, or even the type of coding I'd like to do in the next few years. I need to give it more thought. ;)

    Okay, to clarify, I'm not lazy. However, I'm also not motivated enough to go and write an operating system or anything fancy like that. And, like CompiledMonkey said, my intention was that I would want to be good enough that I could work on interesting things and have them be within the realm of my abilities.

    And yes, I do speak English... Or if I don't my English teacher must have a thing for me or something, cause I've got a 90 in AP English ;)

    I want to go to work and have this as my daily agenda:

    1) get a big-ass cup of coffee
    2) take a shit
    3) read the newspaper for a few minutes
    4) browse the web
    5) take a lunch break
    6) play a multiplayer game on the network
    7) maybe do some work
    8) go home

    I wanna be CIO :)

    Welcome to corporate America, where 25% of the people do 75% of the work. You will fit into the 75% of the people nicely.

    I love what I do now, just hope to make more doing it. ;)

    I'd probably like to get out of the consulting end and do more project management.. I just wish that PM positions were more long term than just the life of the project.
