What Do You Dream of Doing?
« on: April 22, 2006, 09:48:00 PM »
What have been your dreams in life, realistic or unrealistic. Even though I'm only 17, one of my childhood dreams, like many other boys (& perhaps girls) in the world would be to drive a train locomotive. For me I'd prefer a steam locomotive. I live along the railroad tracks so I see trains pass by every day. I've also kind of wanted at one point to be a farm kid, though I love living in the suburbs. That dream kind of came true when I went to visit the Hohenbokens over spring break. I've also wanted to meet one of my favorite musical artists, Billy Gilman (who has a bit of a resemblance to my cousin) , as well as several monarchs, dead or alive. Oh yeah, it's also been my dream to visit China, as well as to return to Switzerland for a visit.

When I was little, I wanted to grow up to be a wolf.  ::) But now I just want to visit all 50 US states and Europe.

To be a celebrity, that means somebody everyone knows! :D On Broadway, because I love and live the stage. Or I'd settle for West End in London.

Hmm, I've lots of 'dreams' but most are ridiculous - I'd love to be a famous writer or something like that.

What part of Europe? It's a big place.  ;D

I had all the pretty standard dreams as a child! My town is like stage school city; we have a Performing Arts university specialising in everything to do with training actors and technicians for film, TV and stage that has produced many a famous face behind my house, another performing arts centre up the road, and three schools of dance in the town centre, which have also produced many famous faces.  So, naturally, with such surroundings, my first dreams were to be, in order, a ballerina, then an actress.  So, I took ballet lessons, but it turned out I wasn't very good at ballet. So I got bored of that and decided to be an actress instead.  I went to the before mentioned Performing Arts university to take Saturday drama lessons, but after a couple of years I got bored, and I had started secondary school, so I didn't have much time for dreams of stardom any more. ;)

I also had flirtations with being an Olympic horserider, until I got thrown off a horse and decided I didn't want to do that any more, a concert pianist, but then I got bored of practicing the piano, and then an archaelogist, until I realised that would involve getting dirty. ;)  I think my impatience is starting to show through here as a theme...I get bored very quickly! ;)

Now, at two weeks away from turning 20, my main dreams for life are to have a career that I find fulfilling and that makes a positive impact on the lives of others, which I have pretty much decided will be teaching, to work in Africa for a while to support the aid effort, to travel to all of the places I long to visit, such as Egypt, Romania, Morocco, India, Africa, etc, and to settle down at some point with someone I love and start a family.  I don't ask for much, not compared to my earlier dreams of fame and stardom, anyway! ;)

As a fourteen girl year old living in Australia, I don't have the average dream. People the same age as me want to be fashion designers, actresses or models. I don't want to be famous, to have my life out in a big bright light, I want to be a stay-at-home mum, to have one of those children that goes and says "my mum makes the best choc-chip cookies" would be like getting a promotion to me. One of those mums who are always in the kitchen or cleaning sounds like heaven to me. Weird huh? ;D What's even weirder is that the next best thing would be to have a full on career - to be a wedding planner in the city. Being a Virgo, I'm organised and efficent. My friends think I would suit either and could probably juggle both at the same time.

I'll just have to wait see what the future holds in store for me  ;)

Oooh, I'd also like to be a model. I don't have the looks but I have the B*tchiness.  ;D

Meanwhile, his Australian counterpart(me!) has looks and biatchiness. *modest side is out and in full force here* 8-)



I would like to study law/political science in later life, and become a historian...

So did I! Until I became one and then it wasn't as much fun. :(

So I quit the modelling lark and became a checkout girl.  More fun, nicer people, and now I can eat as much chocolate as I want!

Time for a new fun thread!

Pretty self explanatory, I think!

Ok, first one-

If you could be an animal, what would you be?

Some sort of cat - I think they're very elegant. Of course, they're also temperamental, but that's me to a tee.   [smiley=2vrolijk_08.gif]

If you could be a book what book would you be? (a witty one, an informative one, a long one, a short one?  ;))

Hmmm, that's tough. Probably informative.

If you could be a type of flower, what would you be?

I'd be a rose, because they're beautiful and they smell lovely. ;)

If you could be a chocolate bar, what would you be?

Dove, dark chocolate

If you could be a Broadway musical, which would you be?
