Ok, my turn.

My name is Jonatan and i live in Alby (the ghetto outside of Stockholm) in Sweden. I'm 17 years old, and turn 18 in october.

I'm going to a circus gymnasium run by Cirkus Cirkr, where i practice acrobatics, russian swing and teeterboard. I've also been doing a lot of card magic, and i just started fire breathing. In the future i plan to have Hoop diving as my major dicipline.

Most of my time is spent on practice, but on my spare time i create games, compose music and take a shower.

huh? In what way do you mean? Do you mean "Depressing how freaky people can be. Going to a circus scool!? What kind of a future does that poor kid have?"

Or do you mean "Depressing how much that kid is doing on his spare time. I just slack in front of my computer all day."

If you ment the first one, then you're pretty much right. I will probably get a low paid unstable job, and when i turn 40 i'll have to give up the circus and spend the rest of my life selling hot dogs.

If you meant the other one, i have a few things to say to you. Practicing circus isn't my spare time. Its like doing my homework for me. Construct is my spare time. Slacking in front of my computer is my spare time, and you guys do that all the time.

I'll be 29 in May.

I operate a computer retail/repair store in a major shopping centre in Adelaide Australia.

Married for 4+ years, and have a lovely 2 year old daughter.

I enjoy digital and traditional art mediums, and consider myself an experienced "anime" artist among other subject medium.

My other hobbies include gaming, making games, anything to do with games really... I also regulary spend time with my wife and daughter at the beach or going out to see friends etc. Tonight we plan on having an "imaginary tea party" and then watching movies! :lol:

That pretty much covers that...

16 year old male, 17 in June, living in NSW Australia.
Currently attending high school in year 11 for my HSC, and after that I'm going to TAFE to do a web design course (which covers PHP as well) alongside a job with my brother-in-law in Sydney troubleshooting and repairing computer systems.
In my spare time (which is a lot of time right now) I'm usually playing Blockland or making more silly little physics contraptions with Construct. I have plans to learn C++ as well in the future and maybe C# (and definitely Python) but I'm learning PHP right now, holding down a part time job at my local second-hand computer shop, and doing my HSC, so I tend to be a bit busy.

It's pretty much my dream in life to release a successful indie survival game, or to get a job at a large game design firm such as Bethesda or Blizzard (these two primarily, as Starcraft was the first game I ever played on PC, Bethesda made my favorite RPG (Morrowind) and are now making Fallout 3, and the other incentive for Blizzard is the money. If I could get work on future parts of WoW... well, no way to be sure but I'd think that their programmers for WoW would get paid quite a lot.)

Even if I got a job at Bethesda I'd still make free indie games in my off time, because I am an absolute whore for free stuff (except free candy, which is usually not sweet delicious confection made of sugar)

Haha no man. I meant the way everyone mentioned how they have no life. Chill it ;)

But that was a little depressing! I think if you have the brains to create music and games, then theres no reason why you can't do anything you want.

Don't you mess With a little girl's dream
'Cause she's liable to grow up Mean

Surprise you to find that I'm laughing?
You thought that you'd find me in tears.
You thought I'd be crawling The walls like a tiny mosquito
And trembling in fear.

Well, you may be king for the moment
But I am queen understand
And I've got your pawns and your bishops and castles
All in the palm of my hand.

I am beginning to feel good
Watching you squirm in your shoes
A small bead of sweat on your brow And a growl in your belly You're scared to let through
You thought you could keep me from loving
You thought you could feed on my soul
But while you were busy destroying my life, What was half in me has become whole.
