I'm living the dream :)

Ok, not quite accurate ....in 9 years I'll be living the dream with the perfect job. It's called retirement. My career goal is reaching it!

Successful programmer :p that way I can contribute to games like these... is that sucking up LOL...
Seriously, I've had an interest in programming for a long time... to be a game developer is my dream job.

But my other dream jobs is software or hardware design and development.

I think you'd improve them a lot. It's not particularly sucking up, no. Maybe TL would take you on as an apprentice for being such a dedicated customer. You never know!

Hahaha! I know that it's not just young people. However, a lot of people with jobs don't necessarily have their dream one. If you do, you're lucky. What is it?

We all seem to like TeamLava and programming. I suppose that's understandable: we like TeamLava enough to join their forums and we like games. On top of that, it's a pretty good and, I suppose, fairly fun job.

Exactly. I love track racing etc., but if I was eg. a lorry driver, the Motorway queues would become even more unbearable than usual. Saying that, I wouldn't mind working for the Motorway Police. That's very boring, but I reckon that I'd enjoy it for the tiny amount of excitement you get about once every week.

I'm usually a hippo, except on Fridays.Then I actually have to MAKE the food I eat !

Bakery Story was what drew me into teamlava games to begin with. As much as I bake for a living, its still fun to design a bakery however you please, control what kinds of cute cartoon pastries go out and watching your little customers eat up !

Funny thing happened to me recently: I was at work, making a red velvet cake for a customer, and I had to stop halfway while icing it and turn around, flip open my phone and put out my Bakery Story red velvet cakes that were done. Then went back to finishing up my actual red velvet cake. I didn't even plan it that way, lol.

Do Hippos need livings? If you're only a human (I assume that as a non-hippo, you're a human, correct me if not) on Fridays, surely a living is useless?

I also worked at an accounting firm while going to college. Not my favorite job, especially during tax season. The firm was too small for the number of clients it had so I'm sure that had a lot to do with it.

I want to be a healthcare provider (nurse practitioner) and health educator for impoverished communities here in America, and in developing nations. Ideally, I would travel a LOT. This is my calling; the best way to mix my passion with a salary. :p There are academic reasons for it too...
