    I would have to say: my desire to create something and also to learn to improve. These are probably not the best motivations because I do get discouraged for periods of time which result in me seeking other activities (flash is recreational at this time). In fact I just had one of these off times when trying to create a battle system for my mmosg. But now I'm back on track.

    I would like to say I am the most unmotiavted I have ever been right now. But I am sitting here at work and I am here because of money because I have bills to pay. So really I do have motivation...and that is not to be in so much debt. It is hard to keep up with my bills let alone SAVE money. I hate this time of year. I love buying presents for people for xmas but I think this year may not be so good...

    People motivate me. People who complain and don't do anything about it motivate me. Showing everyone that I can do it motivates me. So yeah people motivate me.

    as long as you dont cut yourself on the sales floor im sure you will be fine. with blakc friday coming up im sure all the stores need people for stock teams. they normally go in wicked early, you dont have to dress preppy or anything you just open boxes, and put clothes out before the store opens.

    Women...let's face it, if it weren't for attractive girls I'd be happy in a van down by the river.

    Gadgets, places I've not been yet, and lusty wenches with knife fetishes.

    What motivates me honestly? Lately... not much. ambition isn't limitless, goals once reached need to be replaced with newer/higher ones, and complacency should be avoided. As well as avoiding psycho chicks, greedy family members, and the multitude of pitfalls that might derail your plans.

    My motivation now is to make sense of the world. Somehow.
