When it comes down to it,
I had a pleasant discussion with this woman in my class today about money and the age old question – If you had all the money in the universe what would you choose to do with yourself? The question started with discussion of a few of her professors, sparked by a question I had earlier in class. Why are many instructors retired? It seems to me that retirement is an odd time to begin teaching, but far be it for me to complain. I plan to become a teacher and hopefully ill be one for years, but I digress. Many of the instructors I am interacting with are well endowed, and for that reason money has become no object.
A null reference to some of us nerds…
The question is still very important to me though. Being able to ignore the monetary aspect of life is definitely an influential part of why I am doing what I am doing, although I will admit I’m not being paid as well as I could be if I was to choose another route than this internship. This internship happens to be providing me the freedom and responsibility that I need to be able to continue moving forward towards my dream – I want to become a teacher.
Regardless of myself though, its often good fun to play with hypothetical questions as these are. One that I find exceptionally interesting is – If the world is going to end in 24 hours what would you do? Well shit, I don’t know, but it sure as fuck wouldn’t sound anything like an X-Box or getting on my computer. I would want to be naked as fast as possible and probably doing something naughty, of course 24 hours of that would make me raw so I would definitely need to be doing something else absurd to pass the time. Maybe I am just a romantic, but I think that spending the last 24 hours with someone that I love is definitely up on that list.
When I was in an interview a few months back I was asked – if you were able to build any application what would it be? For sure?! I would be building the biggest baddest ass game of all time. Something that would blow Halo and whatever the hell else my nephews think is cool out of the water. I would of course love to start on that today, so please email me if you are interested.
