Are you a crafty creative, diligent developer or neurotic number cruncher?
With unlimited money or talents, what would you like to do as a career? 

I want to be head designer for a large digital company and have the chance to move from one place to another. I don’t want to spend too much time in one place though  because it feels nice having a place to call home.

OMG... I love juicy, sugary and intensely-flavored cakes! Food wise, nothing gives me more pleasure.

Google Maps. I'm a person that gets lost sometimes.
