    An engineer. (That's what I'm in school for, anyway.)
    Yeah... that or married.

    True, but do you really want to remain a child forever?

    Maturity does not preclude being young at heart, adventurous, fun, joyful, eager to learn

    I don't know if I'll ever truly grow up. I still wholeheartedly believe in Cybertronian life and Santa.

    To tell the truth, who wants to be old and grumpy? When feeling young and being able to see the brighter side of life is so much more fun? :p

    I wouldn't classify either of those things as a "job," but maybe I'm just incredibly naive. I mean, I've never been married... I think.

    Mechanical. I'm in the mechatronics stream right now.

    There is something to be said about being old and grumpy. I can't wait to drink coffee all morning in a doughnut shop or coffeehouse, all the while, complaining wistfully about government, taxes, young people, old people, buildings, the air, and just about everything else.

    I still get hungover, apparently that's a good thing.

    I work with computers but I think I'd like to totally throw that out the window sometimes and build something.
