Assuming most of the Pit is in either high school or college, most of us haven't started or had much time in careers. So I ask you Pit, what do you want to be?

I'm sure several people will say a musician. I used to want to be a musician, but I've found a great passion in creative writing, so I want to be an author myself. Your turn!

You could do both. Neither is a full 24/7 job like being a lawyer or doctor etc.

Quite honestly, a musician, or music producer. I know it seems predictable, but I'm very serious about music and play all the time.

If that doesnt work out, engineering of some sort would be nice.

I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up.

Psshhh I wanted to become a programmer but I honestly wonder how long I can do that before it becomes unbearably tedious. That and it seems dead end..cant imagine how many promotions are in Programming.

Although the 70-80k starting salary sounds nice. I honestly am lost on this topic

Been there... done that...
The money IS nice, but I lost my mind and re-enlisted in the Marine Corps to go to Iraq after 5 years.

Edit: Iraq as a Marine Infantryman was much less hostile than corporate America in many regards.

I'd like to be an author or musician, but I doubt I'll make a living doing either.

I'd like to be a musician, but right now I think I'll be an electrical engineer.

Well I really want to be a professional musician, and I'll always try for that. But in the meantime, I like to work on cars and such, so I could be a mechanic's apprentice or something. Right now I work on a golf course and do maintenance on that, sometimes work with the mechanic when he needs help, that's always fun. I don't really wanna go to college. High school has sort of shaped my mind to believe all school is horrible for me. I need to get out of here...

That's the point. Whenever there's a thread that somebody uses the word "Finish", as in, "to finish something", in the thread title, I can't stop thinking about ****ing Finland.

Oh yeah? So how was it then? Being a programmer that is. I imagine it would SUCK during "crunch" time or when youre working on something you dont like. If you want to, do they allow you to work from home sometimes?


thanks for your time in Iraq for us btw.

I worked from home often, but the work is not what you think. More often that not you're writing queries to make some list that some high-up bonehead needs yesterday. The applications are never fun to write, and usually you're working with code that someone else wrote incorrectly. You're not allowed to correct their code because you're not sure where else it's referenced. Everyone does their little piece, and sometimes you don't even know what the finished program will be.

Boring.... lots of red-tape....

Good news is that you can write your own stuff on the side, although your contract may keep you from doing that also.

@Viking, Thanks more specifically its in the industry of gaming because that pays more, believe it or not, and has a much more casual environment. I really have to see for myself. I understand what youre saying and that HAS been a concern of mine..but im like you and have no idea what I want to do


There is nothing I can think of that id be passionate and like doing every single day ..resteraunt critic would be AWESOME but I cant live off the pay

Psychologist sounds alright...but ehhh..if im gonna be doing something I dont really love doing, I might as well take the 80k programming job. Psychologists usually get paid average of 60k

Also, I found out today that I got assigned to be the chief writer of my school's yearbook, which is just AWESOME.

EDIT: This is significant because like I said in the first post, I want to be an author.

No problem. I don't have experience in the gaming industry, but I was around when programmers and web guys were cutting edge. It was a good time to be a geek. Don't get me wrong... I've done some really cool projects here and there, but they were always contracts.

Good luck finding your calling. I really loved the Marine Corps, but I'm too old and broken to be kicking in doors anymore.
