Well, I would like to be a musician or a music teacher or something like that the only things stopping me are that I don’t have a job to buy equipment and yeah…

I wanna be an archaeologist, but not a prof, I wanna work in the field! That is my ideal situation, but I know that it won’t be exactly like that, like there will be tradeoffs and stuff. I also have to learn foreign languages, which isn’t my forte, but I really want to do this, so I must.

At my age, 66, I hae everything I ever wanted. I now live. Yes, that’s all there is to it, “live”.

buster's avatar

Travel, have fun, laugh, be outdoors, fishing, camping, hiking, grow weed, hop a train, skateboard, bicycle, learn to surf, learn spanish, and try to better myself. I already do part of these. I lack a close beach to learn to surf. And I need to go to school.

Watch a shitload of television and scratch myself.

applesaucemanny's avatar

@AstroChuck I don’t think there’s a single person that hasn’t done that

augustlan's avatar

<< Is pretty sure AC has already achieved his goals.

MacBean's avatar

Chuckie’s got the right idea, I think!

AstroChuck's avatar

Yup. I’m living the dream.

Bluefreedom's avatar

My goals are to advance far in my military career (accomplished and continuing further), finish my college education (in progress), and retire in my mid-50’s (on target).

I’d like to discover new hobbies and activities, such as skydiving and getting my private pilot’s license, to name just a couple of them. (Currently on hold)

Saving money and researching ideas of what I want to accomplish at a later time is helping me to get where I want to be.

Nothing is stopping me at the present time. I’m taking the whole life experience one day at a time and I’m pacing myself in a stress free but productive manner.

Get back to living in civilization where I can take a class if I want, or join a seniors running group, play masters tennis, have a choice to where to eat out and be able to do it after 7 pm, have less than a 250k drive to get to a vet or a dentist, buy fresh foods for less than 2 arms and legs!

The list is endless!

Jack79's avatar

@myuzikalsoul how old are you? Because I’ve done most of what I wanted to do with my life. All I want now is to get my daughter back and spend the rest of my life healing her wounds and making sure she’s ok. I’ll probably end up killing half a dozen people and spend the rest of my life in jail. Which is the only way I’ll ever finish this book I’m writing.
