Default What is your dream?

Focus: What is you dream? What would you love to do for a living? Is there anything that you are truly and deeply intersted in? What are you doing right now to accomplish your goal?

For me, my dream is to be one of Hollywood's most successful and recognized directors. I want to make movies that entertain, but also those that are considered art, much like Spielberg with Jurassic Park or Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom compared to his Schindler's List. Having a bank account like his wouldn't hurt either at approx. $2.7 billion! I want to make films that inspire and influence. I am in film school right now and am taking some extra summer classes in July: Advanaced Photographic Lighting and Digital Cinematography.

And no NBA dreams unless you think you truly have a shot. I'm pretty sure every one of us has had that dream and mine got shot down my first year playing JuCo basketball.

My dream is for the Reds to win the World Series



Seriously, though, I just want to be a teacher and hopefully impact some of the lives of students I teach. Nothing to me would be cooler than a kid coming up to me years later and telling me thanks for everything that I taught them. I don't care about being rich, or having lots of fancy stuff. I just want to have a wonderful family, and the free time that teaching provides (Summers off) to be there for them as they grow up. My father was absent from my life and I don't want to be like that.

Also, another big dream of mine is to do as much traveling as humanly possible. I want to see the world, and I think my experiences being in other countries will help make me a better teacher and person in general.

Hope this isn't too chessy *lol*

I'd like to see the Broncos win a few more Super Bowls too.

That is definitely not cheesy, it's pretty admirable. Awesome teachers are rare, but the ones that are kids will remember forever.

I want to be able to get a good job, and retire early, so I can coach high school basketball & football, without having to worry about paying the bills. Hopefully I could help kids out, and make them better people all around.

If this was 300 or so years ago I would of dreamed of becoming a pirate. Seriously. Do you know how loaded those guys were. Though they didn't live long lives and if they were caught they usually died a terrible death. I would of been captain of my ship called 'The Strength of The World' or 'The Sidewinder', both inspired by Avenged Sevenfold songs. (BTW neither of these songs have any reference to pirates or pirate ships, I just think they are kick ass songs.)

I already reached my dream of helping someone reach their goal. I helped Wadeisabeast graduate. Obviously, that isnt my dream but still tight as hell.

My dream: Become a guitarist for a band that is very successful and become the best guitarist ever in the best band ever.

My Realistic Dream: Become a petroleum engineer and find someway to make oil clean as glass and rewarded for it so the whole world knows what I have done.

Play in the NBA or Europe. (NBA preferbly)
But if not.....

Get a basketball scholarship to a college in the states so i can become a basketball journalist. Then retire and become a coach.

NB) If the oppourtunity of pro ball comes along in college, i'm gonna take it obviously.

I want to become a gynecologist ... because I get payed to feel and examine punany.

I'll do my best to make my goal a reality; I'll keenly observe my porn and ask my girl friends if I can dissect and poke their she-johns.


For real I'm going to strive to become a financially successful person. Right now I want to become a chemical engineer; the pay is nice. Eventhough the job is strenuous and I have been know to slack off every now and again, I will buckle down and do it takes to make it.

Except for petroleum engineering, chemical engineering is the highest paying engineering job in Palo Alto.
