Hopefully get into a good college (I've been looking at Stanford and MIT, but I'd need a biggg scholarship). While I'm there I'll decide specifically what I want to major in, then I'll go out and get a job in it. Video games would be sweet, but I think making a sucessful start-up would be even better.

My cousin never went to college, instead he stayed home and learned like 5 programming languages on his own. Then he started a digitizing and storing company that scanned documents for big corporations and stored them securely on his website. I'd want to do something like that.

Something to do with catering. I'm an awesome chef! Build up knowledge and skills and then open my own restaurant. If that fails I might go into freelance web design.
Meh... So I don't post much?

I'm going to be a secret agent, along the lines of 007 8)

No seriously, I'm going to start a 5 year education to become an electronics engineer. I just got a 'price for excellence' this year (it was my final year for my current electronics education). In Europe there's no such thing as high school and college so it's kinda hard to explain :wink:

I'm an apprentice of a master electrician, so I guess that an electrician is a good route, maybe a plumber. I'd probably do videogame programming and small electronic repair as a sort of side thing, a free time sort of thing.

Try out Madrid, Valencia, or Barcelona (If you can put up with Catalan) Sevilla is pretty cool too I guess. Totally let me know if you ignore my advice though. I would love to do something to do with electronics in my future but im doubting it would really amount to anything so Ive been thinking a lot about a game store that actually carried games made before 2000 and imports.
Man you must get really annoyed with all the drunk English Chavs that go there


Im looking at Uni's with the intention to do Modern History and Politics

No clue what to do afterwards, probably go traveling and bum around the world till its time to face up to my debts and go out and get a real job
