Life Goals.

Post  Arctic DJ on 19/2/2013, 7:12 am

Hey guys!

Assuming you read the title (see title), I shall explain my goals.

Right now there are three paths lying before me.
Basketball, game design, and music.

Basketball. I really love this sport and I am a very talented player. I really want to play professional ball but I don't know if I can do it. Some players work their lives off practicing, only coming to a dead end (not getting recruited into college ball). You get money for playing in the NBA (National Basketball Association), so there's path #1: Play college Basketball, work hard to get drafted onto an NBA team.

Game design - Oh, this is what I do all day. I read about how to code and make 3D designs. (I am no artist, but in order to start a company, you have to know a little bit of everything.) So I'm learning bits and pieces. Influences to my current project are: the Ratchet and Clank series, Minecraft, and Terraria. A bit of Halo, when it comes to graphics Razz. So yeah. I may be the computer nerd xD

Music: I used to be in a band, but we disbanded. We opened to huge groups, (Oh, Sleeper) but we each had different... ideas and opinions on how our music should have been... so we quit. Now I'm just sitting here like [i]I'm an amazing drummer, with nothing to drum to. *sigh* lolno[/b]
What I will do, is see if any rock bands need a drummer, and audition.

So what are your plans? I know CCP is going to build us a flying car. Mind = BLOWN

Lol, thanks about the flying car thing. Good luck with your game design thing, especially: I'm a bit of a game designer myself, I can program basic Flash games and although I find it somewhat complicated, I enjoy making games in Unity 3D (3D game engine - Rocketsnail sometimes uses it). Perhaps we'll end up working for a video game company together one day.

Anyway, onto my life goals:

Go to Oxford or Cambridge University - I currently attend a very good school and I put a lot of effort in, so I hope that one day I'll get offered a place at Oxford or Cambridge (best UK unis).

Actually build one of my various projects - Regarding a flying car, I think it's possible. If more lightweight materials were used in construction, and you took out ridiculously heavy leather seats and bulky radios, it could work. You may also have to replace the wheels with retractable rods like on skis, and the petrol engine definitely has to go: a mini jet propulsion device (with a small refillable oxygen tank to provide air intake) could be installed in the very back of the car instead of a boot/'trunk'. In the end, lots of the features of a modern car would be removed and I doubt you could fly very fast or for longer than about 15 minutes at a time, but it's definitely possible. I also have a few ideas regarding wind and solar energy, but to my eternal astonishment, nobody has ever thought of them before so I'll keep those private. Smile

Write a book or a series of books - Yep. I currently write very short stories ('flash fiction' or 'head cannons') for various websites, blogs and forums under several pseudonyms (made up names), often for a tiny fee Rolling Eyes and so I think it's possible that I could write and publish a book some day.

If I manage to do all this in my lifetime, I'll probably go on to start my own PR firm or become some sort of lawyer. If not, perhaps I'll create a few little video games or websites. To be honest, who knows?

Didn't know there was that many people interested in the gaming industy.

Try the Unreal Development Kit for it, UDK is already working with the PS4.

And Cc, that sounds pretty..damn awesome. Just be sure to make me a special car with carbon plating Razz

Well.. I should post about my life goals.

I want to become a programmer. I'm starting to learn php, html, java and C++ at 12 so I can get GCSE's in computer when I'm 16. Once I've done that I'll make my own company. (Similar to Ultor from Saints Row 2.. Razz)

I've got a few goals...
Swimming, Karate, and Music. Going to UBC would be great as well in my opinion.

Now, I'll just explain these goals.

Swimming
I train 4 times a week, and my coach considers me a good swimmer too. I love the sport, and I often take part in competitions. I'd love to be an Olympic swimmer one day, and my idol is Michael Phelps.

Karate
Another sport I love. I have a three hour long training on Saturdays, and I have a very high belt as for my age. I am also quick and small, and it's quite hard for people to get me... My goal is to be the Open World Cup champion, although I know it's impossible.

Music
My biggest love. My family is all musical. My mom is a singing teacher, while my dad is a producer. We have a recording studio at home, and even my brothers can play instruments. I can play around 7 instruments, and my first one was the piano, at the age of two... My goal is to get in a rock band, and be either the guitarist, bassist, drummer or singer, as I can do all of these.

Going to UBC
Going to UBC is one of my goals ever since I was around 7. I've always wanted to study Science there.


So yeah.... These are some of my goals.

Well,


  • Do well in my GCSES in 2015
  • Do well in my A Levels
  • Go to University (I'm aiming for a big one like Oxford)
  • Become fluent in Mandarin and German.
  • Restart French and become fluent in it (I'm dropping it for German)
  • Get married and have a family
  • Get a good job (I like the sound of being a vet or perhaps a job in the gaming industry)

Drumming is easy to learn. Just practice everyday, look up some videos, and you're good to go.

Hey if you want a good source of information look at the "Dummies" series on programming, I'm reading them and they're pretty informative.

I know. Very Happy I play the Acoustic Snare Drums, and my parents hate them. They're very loud, so my parents thank god for the fact that our basement is soundproof.

Thanks for all your nice comments concerning the flying car! I hope you all fulfil your goals! You like languages a lot, Sindar? Razz

Yep, I will at some point. I'm currently looking at DJ's website.

That'll be £350,000, please Razz. Nah, jk, if I actually meet you in real life, and manage to actually build the car, you can go free. Very Happy

Hooray! Once you build it, I'll be waiting on the 600th floor in the Empire State Building.

(Some people know what I mean.) Very Happy

I have a few! Well some probably wont happen lol but it would be cool!

First, I want to work at my favorite magazine, Tiger Beat. I would want to be a graphic designer or something! I have been reading that magazine since october 2007 and have never missed an issue! I like to try to make my own versions of the cover with me on it lol. And it would be cool to see celebrities evrey day!!

Or, I want to work at Club Penguin! I would be one of the artists or graphic designers. Or maybe a mod or blogger! By the time I am actually old enough I would probably be really experienced!

And, this probably wont ever happen, but I have always dreamed of being famous lol. When I was little, I actually did a whole job project in school about how I wanted to be a pop star XD. I dont really sing, or act, but my freinds tell me Im good lol. And sometimes I pretend Im at photo shoots in front of my mirror when Im alone! XD I have always wanted to like go on tour and stuff, it seems so fun!!

And I think those are most of my goals!

Shocked I really don't have life goals, but maybe I do have life goals kind of abstractly...

First, I would reaaaally like to be an app developer. Duh, I constructed some unnamed game where you battle this computer, but still, I mean like something else. Do you get what I mean? Sorry if you don't.

If that fails, I would reaaaaally like to be a successful author. I have no idea why, but I'm working on like 20 books now because my head is flooding with ideas.

If that fails, I would probably take up majoring in chemistry or physics.

*facepalm* God, why didn't I take up chemistry earlier!

All else fails, I would have to decide later.
