What's stopping you? Mine is money and space.

I used to play the Guzheng in elementary school :O But I really want to play the drums now.

This is really cool!

rollercoaster  ·  2753 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Dear Hubski, how is your life?

Life is okay. Internship is going well, I think.

I enjoy video game development but I feel like something is missing. I want to rescue animals (possibly specialize in wolves/owls) but where I am at, there is little to no opportunity to do what I want to be doing.

My hope is pretty ambitious, I feel. Sometimes I wonder if it's even possible. In the next few years I hope to migrate much closer to nature and rescue animals be it volunteering or as a job. And possibly get my income from some online business/game thing.

A shame #huski isn't active or known.

Thank you :D Nope, she doesn't need sunblock as we only walk her in the early mornings or in the evenings.

Ever since I was young, I've loved nature and animals. Unfortunately, it got buried as I grew up because everybody around me discouraged me. It was only in University that I re-discover I am happiest around nature/animals. Also, the compulsory overseas immersion program (where I studied in Washington for 3 months) reinforces it significantly. It was the happiest time of my life. But I missed my dog a lot :(

    I'd send a link but I'm not sure how hubski feels about posting personal info

You can PM me.

I wish I don't live in a city so I can build my treehouse!

!! My husky mix:

Thank you for your concern. My bad for not making myself clear :P

I studied IT before going into University for game development so I know I would hate being in IT even though they get paid much more. I have lots of fun developing games and am definitely not doing it for the money. It's just that I know I have to somehow have a source of income before I can pursue my other passion which makes EVEN lesser money, or even none at all.

I've also been thinking about working remotely or doing some online business stuff so I can travel and work at the same time. Or maybe I can develop a hit game :P

rollercoaster  ·  2757 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: What is the worst nightmare you can remember?

The one and only time I experienced sleep paralysis. It was very strange and frightening because it felt very real. I never want to experience it again.

It felt like an out-of-body experience and I also feel everything done on my body. I was looking down over my body and couldn't move. There was a presence that felt dangerous and unfriendly. This thing was "molesting" me and I was sweating so much from fear. I remember waking up, not daring to move and willing myself to fall asleep again to get this over and done with.

rollercoaster  ·  2757 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: What do you do, Hubski?

Congrats on fulfilling your dream! I have a couple of dream houses but the common theme with all of them is that I want to live with lots of nature around. Not too isolated though. Also, I really want a tree house.

You have such a cute dog! This is my dog and she is my first dog too. She's a husky mix.

rollercoaster  ·  2757 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: What do you do, Hubski?

Thank you :)

I am enjoying it but my love for travel and animals just surpasses it. I'm still trying to figure out what to do but will strive to be in the game industry because frankly, I don't want an IT job. At least until I have the funds to volunteer at wildlife sanctuaries! I have to fly to another country to do the rescue work that I want.

rollercoaster  ·  2758 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: What do you do, Hubski?

Graduating in 2016. Currently an intern at a video game company. Trying to balance work-life.

rollercoaster  ·  2758 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Hubski, where do you want to live?

Somewhere with lots of nature and animals. Also, nice people.

rollercoaster  ·  2764 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Why do you live where you live?

So cool! I've always dreamed of moving closer to nature and animals! Born and raised in a city. Not where I want to be so hopefully I'll get to migrate out ASAP.

rollercoaster  ·  2766 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: What facial features do you find most attractive in a person?

Eyes and beard. I just had to say beard.

rollercoaster  ·  2766 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: A World Without Work

Yeah, I enjoy it. That's why I feel like such an ungrateful person :| Nature and animals is what makes me truly happy.

rollercoaster  ·  2768 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: What Do Animals See in the Mirror?

My dog does not react to mirrors or reflections of herself but she reacts when she sees other people. I find that very interesting.

Yep! I find myself skipping through the comment section to find good comments. But it can be a hassle. Though I have to admit I've chuckled some at those hackneyed jokes. :P

rollercoaster  ·  2768 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: What will you miss most from Reddit?

Nothing. I am just going to continue what I've been doing. Just stick with subreddits I enjoy.

Witcher 3: Love the combat. The transition of each swing and dodge from animation to responsiveness just makes it more satisfying. I love that it is never clear what is the best choice to make. What may seem to be the right choice might turn out for the worst. I hate going underwater (for EVERY game).

Dota 2: I play it with 1 other friend every week versus bots. Yesterday night, we just screw around with the wtf mode. So much nonsensical fun.

Sleeping Dogs: I love dressing my character up but not when there's stats involved. I want to dress in anything I want! The combat is pretty fun too since it's martial arts and I love martial arts. I love driving around at top speed. Always with a motorbike as it's much easier to avoid smashing into things. However, I hate the camera when driving as the game wants to take control of it rather then allowing you to move it where ever you want it to go. Don't really like the repetitive side-activities most open-world games have. It gets boring after awhile so I am just doing the story missions now.

rollercoaster  ·  2768 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Whats your dream job?

Rescue animals. But I am not even remotely close to doing that now. Trying to finish university (game design) first and I have to think about money. :(

rollercoaster  ·  2768 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Welcome to Hubski, redditors! Tell us about yourselves.

Hello. I tend to be long winded. Let me try to keep it short @_@ I stumbled upon this website after the drama in Reddit not with the intention of quitting Reddit but just to see what Hubski is like. I always have anxiety posting on Reddit so I do that rarely on multiple accounts that I've already lost count how many I've created.

I am 25 years old and currently in my last year of university studying game design. Although I'm working towards migrating to get closer to nature and be surrounded by animals. It was only when I entered university that I realized I am only truly happy if I can work with animals. I forgot about it as I grew up as everyone around me kept saying it's not gonnna work out as I would need money to feed myself first. So I am trying to change my path towards that. But I get disheartened because I live in a city and really unsure how I am going to get out of here.

I also have lots of other interests like playing video games, reading books, drawing terribly, hitting my imaginary drum set while listening to music, hiking and probably others.

rollercoaster  ·  2768 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: A World Without Work

I don't even have a real job (internship) and I'm already not satisfied. I feel like something is missing and everyday I just look forward to going home although my workplace is really great. Sometimes it makes me think if I am just being ungrateful for not being able to be like everybody doing a 9-5 job. :/
