Curious what others want to do i'm studying programming in university in the next year or two (Depending if i get accepted in first try)

I plan to make my work my life and work at work and when i get home work on other projects for work to get more done sleep then repeat.

My lifestyle is going to suck and be draining and awful but what's the point of wasting time having fun and socializing and partying etc... i mean you have limited time in your life it makes more sense to make the most of it which is why i plan on spending the majority of my time practicing and learning ....which i started to do this year when i'm not having breaks which i need to say goodbye to eventually.

I want to leave something behind when i die but i don't want children because i have personal reasons to not want children i want to create something that i can customize and form.

What do you guys want to do how do you want to live your life and go about your career?

I have a degree in Advertising and Public Relations and a minor in Marketing and hate it so much haha.

Good luck on all that but uhhh I have no plans other than move into an apartment by myself until I die and work a job that lets me pay for it, groceries, and some travel. Pretty basic. Washer and Dryer in unit would be nice.

I don't really have any desire to aid humanity is any sharp or form. Nor do I really care for a career/job so that's a hard question. I guess I just do what I like; I couldn't really tell you exactly what I like though. Victory is the only thing I really seek but what is victory?

I did the military thing for 6 years. Hated HS and my mindset at the time just wasn't conducive to school. So I went and saw the world. I get paid to go to college, now. It's legit easy af.

I used to want a career in Net Sec. I've realized over the past few years that I can and will wear a bunch of hats-- locking myself into a specific career just doesn't seem to be a path that makes me happy. Don't feel like you have to take the traditional route (School -> career ->Significant other -> Kids -> etc.) I didn't and I'm more than happy.

I'm nowhere near done, and if I could do anything different I'd only spend 4 years in instead of 6. Lol. Not bad as far as regrets go, methinks.

Tl;dr

I used to have a career, now I'm building towards my second while simultaneously having fun and being a kid.

Hah, but on a serious note, I'm not sure.

I'm already an adult, & I thought I'd know what I'd want to be at this point, but I don't. It's fine though. At the moment, I'm just cruising through life, taking things as they come.

I do want to have a financially stable career.

Not a just a job. I have that. (& it sucks)

What I want is a career;-- as in doing something that I love, & being paid for it.

I also want enough to help my parents live in comfort. Right now I'm living pretty lazily, but I'm still making small moves for my future. I'm supposed to visit a collage in the 17th, so there's that.

Plan A: Become a lawyer, then a judge. Get married and have kids. Raise them well. Actively help my community.

Plan B: Become a lawyer. Practice for a few years. Take Masters of International Law. Work for the UN

Plan C: Just become a decent human being and not screw up the things I have to do.

I already have a BS Economics degree and I'm currently pursuing law. I failed to reach the academic requirements of my school during my second year though. I'd be a terrible economist or research analyst and I don't think I'd be happy working in that field. I'm at a low point in my life right not so I just don't want to screw up even more.

I don't really care as long as it pays enough for me to live comfortably and I have enough free time to pursue my own interests.

My job is good so my next goal is a home purchase about where I am going decide to live.
I would like to do more traveling as well.I guess, I could always sell a few cars there so many sitting around the yard

It doesn't really matter.

I don't have any ambitions, drive or motivation at this point.

Be comfortable enough to where I can take a trip to Japan first, then to Tazmania to visit the Serengeti.

It's not really like that for me; people's words don't really affect my goals, if anything I'd go against what they say to prove that I could do it.

My lack of ambition stem from not having any love for money or materialism... and 2nd I don't really know what I have an interest in.
