At this point, just more of the same – good health, great friends and kids, a meaningful community and financial security. I’ve been through the ringer and come out the other side. Sometimes I feel like I’d like a romantic partner but I also see downsides to that.

I want to know.

Oh, I’d also like a better conclusion to season 10 of the X-Files.

Surprise me!

At this stage I spend more time looking back on my life and It’s alarming to realize that I got away with pretty much stumbling through the entire thing virtually without a compass or care of an ultimate direction. It’s disgraceful. I can only attribute my good fortune to being surrounded by good and sensible people (particularly the women), and a truckload of just plain good luck far beyond that which a man has any right to expect.

A longer lifespan.

@SecondHandStoke – I could punch Chris Carter in the dick for that ending.

Life dream: to own a self-sustaining piece of land.

Life goal: to not die before I get to know my grandchildren.

A decent job, and a wife with a huge butt and long hair.

I’d like my old life back pre-recession crash but alas, those days of prosperity are long gone and I am now feathering my nest on a seriously tight budget. Right now I am hoping I will be getting into my own little place again in a few months after living with house mates for the past 3 years. It’s amazing how something as simple as getting your stuff out of storage and having your own little abode again can generate such excitement. My needs are simple but I won’t deny I miss having the money to facilitate my independent lifestyle of yore.

My own little home again and inner peace, that is all I desire at this time.

Ok her hair doesn’t have to be long, I’ll be realistic.

What do you want from life?
To kidnap an heiress
Or threaten her with a knife?
What do you want from life?
To get cable TV
And watch it every night?

Or how about a McCulloch chainsaw?
A Las Vegas wedding
A Mexican divorce
A solid gold Kama Sutra coffee pot
Or
A baby’s arm holding an apple?

@stanleybmanly Sure, why not aim high?

Inner peace.

To start a family. To have an equivalent to a pH. D. In general studies. To be the world’s first trillionare.

Mariah's avatar

Good question…it has changed a lot lately, so I’m not as sure as I used to be. I used to think my life was going to be all about my career, but that sounds utterly meaningless to me now. I am still uncertain about whether I want kids, but I’m in a serious relationship with a man who does. There is so much I want to learn. I want to travel a bit and see as many birds as I can. I want to donate blood at least 12 times before I die. I want to keep flexing my creativity.

To get out alive!

gondwanalon's avatar

Work hard, play hard, be healthy, feel strong, feel good and see as many sunrises and sunsets as possible!

Coloma's avatar

@Mariah Why at least 12 times? Don’t you want to be in the 10 gallon club? haha

tinyfaery's avatar

The least amount of suffering as possible.

RealEyesRealizeRealLies's avatar

To figure out what it wants from me.

I mean… I didn’t create it for a purpose. It created me for a purpose.

“I wanna be where the people are
I wanna see, wanna see them dancin

Up where they walk, up where they run
Up where they stay all day in the sun
Wanderin free…wish I could be
Part of that world”

DrasticDreamer's avatar

Stability and to spend quality time with those I love. Traveling would be amazing, but it’s not necessary. Oh and ridding myself of my fairly newly acquired anxiety would also be a huge plus.

Earthbound_Misfit's avatar

I don’t know really. Of course I want to be happy and healthy, but happiness takes many forms. I really do see life as a journey and we never really know what’s going to be around the next corner. I think I just want to be able to keep travelling along, learning and experiencing life. I want to keep hitting milestones in my work and being challenged by what I do. I especially want to have many more long and wonderful years with my family. They’re the best.

Mimishu1995's avatar

I just want my childhood dream to come true. I know determination and hard work are the most important, but think about it: all the sucessful people have at least a good opportunity to set out. I feel like I have nothing to start: my family frowns upon my dream, the society doesn’t really want it, I’m not properly educated, everything I get is from self-teaching… I’m not sure if I can ever do that…

augustlan's avatar

@Mimishu1995, what is your childhood dream?

To love and be loved. (In my fantasy life, I’d also be pain-free.)

Mimishu1995's avatar

@augustlan I want to be a writer. I used to wish I would also be a screenwriter, but as I can’t access art school I have to settle down with being a freelance writer instead.

Stinley's avatar

To be happy and to die before the Alzheimer’s gets me

Mariah's avatar

@Coloma I’ve received 11 times. I’d like my net contribution to the pool to be positive before I die. Of course, I’d like to donate as much as I can, but the 12 times goal is already pretty ambitious for me; I’m frequently anemic and I can’t seem to gain the last 10 pounds I need to qualify.

Blackberry's avatar

@Coloma Oh my god…. lol that was perfect :)

Coloma's avatar

@Blackberry Thought you might like that! Keep ya motivated in your quest for a fat bottomed girl. haha

@SQUEEKY2 “To get out alive!”

I regret to tell you that your wish will not come true. Each of us has a 100% of getting out of life by dying. I’m so sorry to have to say this to you. :-)

MooCows's avatar

I don’t think I will ever be completely happy as I feel like I
am tied down to a farm and do not have the will to get a
divorce and sell the farm and start out on my own at 58.
I have no job skills and so i will try and find my happiness
in things of nature and my sons and myself.

fluthernutter's avatar

To live life in such a way that I will be ready to let go when the time comes.
