My career/education goals are:
-Finish high school (only about two weeks left!)
-Get an undergraduate degree in physics
-Go on to grad school for astrophysics
-Do research in astrophysics, right now I'm thinking cosmology would be a cool field

Goals relating to fun/family/hobbies, etc.:
-Play lots of music: folk, ambient/drone, black metal, doom, etc in my spare time
-Move out west to somewhere in the mountains or desert
-Start a family
-Travel cool places

And just in general I want to enjoy life while doing all of this. Astronomy is my passion, so I think that it will make for a great career for me, and music will be really fun in my spare time.

If you think having adventures with space dinosaurs isn't feasible you just aren't doing strong enough drugs my friend.

I love to do Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Been doing it for a couple of years now, had an interest in grappling far longer but only bad excuses as to why I haven't started to train earlier. I wish I had found it 15 years ago or more. I am still a white belt but I know I make progression and its very satisfying when I realize that I have come to a point where a certain technique starts to work well in sparring against equal or better opponents.

The way things work for me is that I have a short period of feeling real progression and then a longer period in between where I not necisarrily regress but at least stand still until the next short progression. Kind of like taking a step up and then staying there for a while before taking the next step. It doesnt feel continuous but the reward when it happens is amazing. I love it!

Not everything here is realistic, but:
- Finish education successfully
- Create death metal album
- Create death metal album as great or even better than None So Vile
- Be rich (Making death metal and being rich is kind of impossible :p)
- Get somewhere significant with my band
- Travel somewhere, somewhere without other Poles (citizens of Poland) preferably
- Go to space
- Live long (cybernetic implants and shit)
- Have happy relationship
- Cure cancer
- Have a chlild or children that will outdo my achievements
- Buy a tank
- Ride something over with a tank (Non-animal/human of course)
- Shoot something with a tank
- Have fun with explosives

Most are unrealistic but fuck it. Aim high.

there's already a thread like this not too far back.
basically... i have no idea. my "dream" changes frequently.

Part of me wants to move to Oregon. Part to Berlin. Part to Chattanooga. Part to rural Mississippi, of all shitty places... Part of me just wants to rent a cheap trailer in the city I live in now...

I don't have a lot of aspirations. I just want a reasonably good job that I can support myself with, but which won't totally fucking destroy my will to live or drive me to alcoholism and suck up every bit of my free time.

I want to be able to build a nice home studio. Even if it's with cheap gear, I just want it all set up and functional in a way that having my gear all crammed into my bedroom does not allow. I need a bunch of cabling for my patch bay system as well...

I also want to meet someone who's not afraid to put their hand in my butt.

-Earn enough money to not constantly worry about not having enough to get by

-Take my band as far as it will go. Beyond that, to pursue playing metal guitar until my fingers become too knobbly to do so.

-Drink and smoke my life away with my best pals amidst metal, chaos and brotherhood. What more could a man want besides a beer in his hand, Bolt Thrower in the background, his enemies dead at his feet, and his brothers at his side?

I wish everyday for an enemy but instead it's just a lot of "meh"...no hard lines in the sand.

Not so realistic:
Own a monster truck
Get ultra rich (kinda hard when you don't do anything to get rich... I don't even participate in a lottery or anything)
Play in an awesome band and have music released on vinyl (I can't write music for shit, but I play the bass alright. Haven't got the spare time to play in a band right now because lol shop-hours)

More realistic:
Own a pinball machine
Move into a large house in the countryside
Visit USA
Visit Japan
Have a few kids

Boring stuff, eh?

That is a very admirable goal. I mean, it's a lowly enough goal to be attainable and realistic without necessarily being easy to accomplish.

Just don't expect either woman to be a perfect 10.

You can play in an awesome [this is debatable] noisecore band and get your music pressed on vinyl easily. That's how I had my vinyl cherry popped, at least.

Go ask Agathocles.
