Been here a while now.
I am a software developer, doing most of my non-work development in Android. I dislike work on projects I'm not interested in (but the job brings in money), and I already have several Android projects I am actively working on. You can usually see a rough status of the latest mistake
project in my journal, below.
I used to be a gamer, but thanks to a loud, illegally-acting minority, refuse to accept that social title and am now "a person who plays games." Though, even if that minority didn't exist (or wasn't so loud), time constraints and social issues have more or less led me out of gaming, against my preference to continue. Although my apps are mostly game based and used to be somewhat for the purpose of getting me back into gaming (hopefully as a game designer), that is a position I no longer want.
I know some Japanese, because I wanted to translate anime and manga for a living. That didn't work out, and it saddens me when I try to read manga these days and don't understand more than a smidgen without having to consult a dictionary. Still, I continue to read manga (mostly pre-translated), but no longer have time to watch anime.
After finding out I couldn't translate for a living, I shot for the video game industry (only the hardest programming industry to get into), before I learned how the workers are treated. I refuse to be treated that poorly.
I still spend too much time online.
Don't we all?
