Then I would say C++ for when you need to get a real job done; but I really need to brush up my C++ as I only learned C++98 in college, C++17 is out now and it's much different. I dislike Java and if given the choice, would use the similarly syntaxed C#. If I were to choose a programming language that I always wanted to learn but was too lazy, I would pick Python.
The reason I like lua is because you can write complex tasks in a rather short amount of time. I have my own library and snippets of code from working on various lua projects for the last decade that I can do just about anything with lua that you can do with other scripting languages (like Java). I even have been working on a 3D/2D Engine using luaJIT with FFI bindings for various 3rd party C libraries, like SDL 2, OpenGL, OpenAL, PhysicsFS, FreeType, KazMath etc.

I like plain old C for nostalgic reasons and I think Go can be a modern substitute for it, in specific environments.
