Your Goals In Life


Recommended Posts

Don't know if it's been done before but...

What are your goals in life? Personally I have a really long list of life goals, but there are a few which have reighned prominent over the years.

1. [COLOR=DarkSlateBlue]To publicize my own novel [/COLOR] - I'd really like to be a novelist and I'm working on getting this accomplished already.

2. [COLOR=DarkSlateBlue]To write my own video game magazine [/COLOR] - When I was 10-turning-11 back in '02 I spent my entire summer handwriting, on lined paper, my own [COLOR=DarkSlateBlue]Nintendo[/COLOR] magazine. All pictures were traced from [COLOR=DarkSlateBlue]Nintendo Power [/COLOR] using a light board. The cover had [COLOR=DarkSlateBlue]Bomberman[/COLOR] on it. In the end, it measured out to 95 pages with 4 ads >_> One day I'd like to make a real Game Magazine... a specialty issue.

3. [COLOR=DarkSlateBlue]To sue someon[/COLOR]e - Not even I can explain my infactuation with sueing someone, but as long as I can remember it's been a dream of mine.

4. [COLOR=DarkSlateBlue]To try every bread in the world [/COLOR] - From wheat to rye to the flesh of [COLOR=DarkSlateBlue]Jesus[/COLOR]. I wanna try it all. I love me some bread.

5. [COLOR=DarkSlateBlue]To start my own band[/COLOR] - Been a dream of mine since I began writing songs. My band will be called [COLOR=DarkSlateBlue]Moon Tan[/COLOR]. I have a guitar (can't really play it) and my bros got a drumset and a bass, but I doubt they really care about it. I may just learn to play everything myself and be like [COLOR=DarkSlateBlue]Trent Reznor[/COLOR].

6. [COLOR=DarkSlateBlue]Publicise a poetry book [/COLOR] - I don't even care if it sells well, I gotta do it at least once.

I can go on...

What are your goals in life? [color=red][i]//snip//[/i][/color][/QUOTE]
my only goal is to conquer my fear of getting aids :animedepr

[color=navy][size=1]Please don't quote the original poster's entire post--which is, as you may have noticed, quite long--when you're only responding to one aspect of it. This makes things easier for other members who happen to be browsing the topic and helps prevent the thread from getting cluttered. Thanks.

[COLOR=Sienna]My to-do list goes something like this:

1. Eat a 6lb burger in one sitting.
2. Get into politics, where my talents (Uselessness, assholery, and lieing) will be used to their fullest.
3. Ensure Queen Latifah never acts (Or breaths, for that matter) ever again.
4. To create a penis-shaped crop circle. Ha ha ha ha!
5. Get high-speed internet. ****, it doesn't even have to be fast high speed... I just don't want to have a 360 ping on CS :"(
6. Become a sportswriter for TSN. I got tired of writing stories long ago, and have decided I have much more fun, and am much better at, writing about hockey, so I think that'd be nice.

Aside from that, I'd just like to live a simple life and be happy with mysellf. [/COLOR]

Back when I was younger, my only goal was to become an actor, but that's changed alot since then. (Besides, I don't really care about the spotlight) I haven't even thought about goals since turning 18. (which was 4 years ago ^^) In any case, if I were to set a goal... It would probably be.... To be peaceful / at ease for an entire year.

There are too many things that just pisses me off these days, and I'd just like to not lose it for 1 full year. And that would be all I guess.

[size=1]I'm graduating next year, I'd like to go to Savannah College of Art and Design.

Possible career choices would be either fashion designer, photographer, web designer, writer, comic artist, or possible own a card shop.

Other than that, I have few 'goals'. I have a few prefferences, but that's it.

I'd rather adopt children than actually have my own.

I'd like to fall in love and get married, but I'd settle for love.

And... I suppose that's it.[/size]

[FONT=Trebuchet MS][SIZE=1][COLOR=Sienna]In no order:
[B]1) [/B] Live life how I want it, not allowing society to shape my views.
[B]2)[/B] See the world.
[B]3)[/B] Learn many, many things.
[B]4)[/B] Have a family. Honestly, that should be enough if nothing else works out.
[B]*5)[/B] Be Happy - really. What kind of a life will you live if you stand there and moap about every little thing?

[B]*6)[/B] Save the world. I know, I know," how childish," but ,seriously, it's a dream I've held on to since I was a child, and it's something worth holding on to - it keeps me motivated.

[B]*Bonus)[/B] Leave my "mark."
([B]*[/B]) Depends on point of view.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]

[COLOR=RoyalBlue]Just a reminder, posting your goals without bothering to explain a little about why it?s your goal is [I]Spam[/I]. [B]Tical [/B]set a good example with the first post. Please follow it, as I would hate to shut down a perfectly good thread.

On Topic:

[U]To be happy:[/U] It just seems pointless to have goals if pursing the goal isn?t making me happy on some level. So my goals often change as sometimes I find pursuing something I thought I would enjoy actually turned out to be no fun. Take skiing. I wanted to learn so I made it a goal, but I found that I hated being cold so I no longer care if I learn how to ski well.
To publish a novel: [/U]This is one that I am actually working on. I find I enjoy writing out the stories I?ve thought of. Even if I don?t get them published I?ve at least had fun writing them.
Visit every national park in the US: [/U]I love visiting national parks. Even if it I never finish this goal I want to at least visit as many as possible.[/COLOR]

[SIZE=1]Nah...goals in my life, huh? You're talking to a person who changes those goals on a daily basis. But, I'll see if I can find some semblence of order in my various mental wanderings and make a list.

1. [U]Be Happy.[/U] Yes, I'm going to third this one, as it has been the only goal in my life that has stayed stable. The path I traveled on in this life has been an interesting one, but one that has left me with many questions concerning emotions. I'd love to be really and truely happy, and actually know that I'm happy, for once.

2. [U]Head back up north.[/U] I left some very dear friends up there, both of which I think about daily and miss greatly. Besides that, I miss standing outside in the snow wearing only my sweater, staring up at the heavy ice-grey clouds.

3. [U]Do something useful in this life.[/U] That something useful can be anything. Even if it's a task I'm not that fond of, I'll do it.

4. [U]Find my career.[/U] This one is tricky, as this can change with the tides. Right now I plan to major in Sociology, but I've considered being a Librarian, a Journalist, and a member of a professional Tech Crew multiple times. I like doing all of these things, it's only a matter of finding a way to make money at them.

And, last but not least,

5.[U] Get my hands on all of Neil Gaiman's [I]Sandman[/I] comics.[/U] Meh...do you blame me? I became a fan of his with reading [I]American Gods[/I]. Now reading the [I]Sandman[/I] series is the top priority on my list.[/SIZE]

8. [COLOR=DarkSlateBlue]Get the Gril I Love To Fall In Love With Me [/COLOR] - Assuming she isn't already <_<. Advice to all - long-distance realtionships are very, very difficult to establish.[/QUOTE]

Not if both people feel the same, they're not.

I try to keep my goals and dreams sepparate, to avoid dissapointment, I guess. There are so many things I want to do, but a lot of them probably won't happen.

1) [B]Move to America[/B]-Whether or not I'm still with Trevor, I need to get over there. I can't stand England, but I adore America, and I've got a better chance of being successful over there.

2) [B]Get five A grades in my final exams[/B]- I've just officially left High School, but I still need to go in for exams. I was predicted to get 8 A grades, but I know I won't. 5 will make me very happy.

3) [B]Be a successful, serious journalist[/B]- I've always wanted to be well known in the career I decide to take. Not a celebrity, but just to have people in the same line of work think, 'Oh, hey, that Jamie? She's done some impressive work.'

4) [B]Go to Japan to teach English[/B]- This'll probably happen as I'm looking into some courses.

5) [B]Marry Trevor and have his squishy, pink babies.[/B][/SIZE]

[color=#FF3366][FONT=Lucida Sans Unicode][SIZE=1]I have no real true goals of life. I do make goals but is one of does short term goals like get 100 in a math test. I never think ahead which is what you really doing when you make Life Goal list. Yet I'll try to make true life goals in my list. Maybe if I make one in this thread I can actually live up to it...here I go.

Life Goals:

1)[B]To fall madly in love:[/B] This would be wonderful to do. I never really loved someone to tell you the truth. So far all I ever had was 'puppy love', kind of. If you ask all my past boyfriends they will say 'she never loved me back'. What they mean is that I never returned there feelings with a 'I love you too'. If I had the 'I love you' would be just a shallow meaning. So I would always say 'I like like you'. I want to say the words 'I love you' one of these days. I think maybe [U]someone [/U] I know is the one, not sure yet.

2) [B]To get along with my older sister:[/B] This is probably impossible. You see my sister and I [U]never[/U] got along even when we were little. We grew up with a hatred for each other. Now instead of playing evil tricks on each other we get into fist fights. You might think I'm over exaggerating but it's true. I have ever single scar in my body to show for it.

3) [B]Photographs that mean something:[/B] I want to take photographs with all my best memories in them. I want to look back and I say I had a blast. I notice some of us tend to look back or remember only the bad times. I don't want to do that anymore, I don't want it to be a part of who I am. I know it be difficult to only remember the good times for me so I need pictures. I want to lots of pictures each one have its own value.

4) [B]Remember names:[/B] I'm very forgetful to the point I forget my own name. This is I know very silly since I been writing my name since kindergarten. Is just if I think too hard for too long I forget a chunk of history in my life but just about 2 months. Like the other day I was thinking too deeply, too hard and I forget my friend Jonathon name. I meet him about 1 month ago. I lose friends like this so I want to stop doing that.

This is all I have so far. Hopefully I have more later on.[/SIZE][/FONT][/color]

1) Toget into Northumbria University's LLB (hons) Law exempting degree, or Aberysyth University's Artificial intelligence (w/robotics-BA(hons)/Computer game design (w/sound and vision - BA(hons)), or suffolk universiy's games desing BA(hons) courses. - Either one is fine, They're all expensive and Highly competative, but The potential for Very lucrative work in the future (especially with the LLB law degree) Is very high

2) To fianlly get around to completeing my Novel - I've been working on this for a few years on-and-off. But I really haven't had the energy lately (am still only in chapter 4)

3) To optain the perfect evangelion collection - I'm rather an obsessive Eva fan, and so It has been a goal of mine for some time to Obtain any and all eva-related things.

4) To cut off the head of a PLushie Using a Cold steel brand Tamashigeri katana - Just something I've always wanted to do

5) Ask the ninja a question - I am ninja! He is ninja! She is ninja too! (hahahah. ask a ninja rocks)

all I can think of now.

[b]Panda's Goals[/b]

-[u]Save money for annual Anime Expo trip.[/u] Every year I go and every year I say the exact same thing: "I'm going to start saving now so I'll have more of a budget to use at AX next year!" Meh. As you guys can guess that goal never seems to work out. I would like to actually make financial plan for my anime convention trips. That would be very beneficial.

-[u]Exercise more.[/u] I exercise but I have a tendency to get lazy and skip a day...then two. You know how it is, it's a slippery slope and before you know it you aren't doing anything but sitting in front of the computer typing on message boards. I need a set schedule to stick to.

-[u]Get my Rheumatism under control.[/u] This one I'm not sure if you can call a "goal" per se since it's not something I can really control. If my meds don't work I can't really go out and make new ones that will. This may fall under the "wish" catagory.

-[u]Become a more tolerant/accepting person.[/u] I think I could ease up a bit. I feel I am too critical about different things in my life. I also take may things said and done personally which is good to a degree since it makes me a bit more sympathic, but bad since it makes me hypersensitive to opposing forces.

-[u]More traveling and meeting new people.[/u] I love to travel and meet new people. I would really love to be able to travel around the world and meet up with many of the friends I have made here on the boards. But you guys already know that is, and has been, always on my "to do" list.

[b]Very Little But Very Realistic Panda Goal[/b]

-[u]Eat a large chuck of chocolate dipped in a jar of peanut butter.[/u] Those of you who read my frequently updated blog know where this is coming from. Back in the day, before many of you were even alive, there was a Reese Peanut Butter Cup commercial that had this huge chunk-o-chocolate scooping out peanut butter from a jar. I always thought it woud be cool to eat that huge bar of chocolate with peanut butter.

Someday I will actually do this. Oh yes, someday.

[b]Very Large Panda Goal[/b]

-[u]Be happy with who I am.[/u] I have never really been comfortable in my own skin. I always feel like I need to work harder, be smarter, look better, be funnier...etc. for anyone to like me. I need to get to a place in my life that I can be happy being me. The older I get the more I am happy with who I am. Meh, my friends and family love me for me why should I care what some stranger thinks! But there is still that little doubt in the back of my brain that makes my anxiety rise.

[size=1]Goals (or wishful thinking):

[u]Numbero Uno: To make a successful anime company in Australia that produces high quality anime and manga[/u]

My ultimate dream/goal. The anime industry in Australia is rapidly growing. There is so much talent in Australia - artists, musicians, voices, and on and on. I would love to tap into that potential and make something success out of it.

[u]Numbero Dos: To create some successful storylines that can be turned into anime/television/movies/novels[/u]

I have sooo many ideas running through my head. I just would want get them out into the world, see if they are good or not.

[u]Numbero Tres: Go on exchange to Japan[/u]

I want to experience the schooling life of Japan. One, to see if it is really like animes (I do doubt it) and two, to see how different it is to Australian schools. I would have love to have gone as a high-school student but I didn't have the finance. Now I'm at uni, and I plan to study a degree about Japan after I finish this one.

[u]Numbero Quatro: Finish my degree with style[/u]

Actually finishing this degree!!!

[u]Numbero Cinco: (this is more of a wish than anything and I'm sure Delta will agree with me) Have a room full of oodles of bishie plushie[/u]

So I can fantacise about them all day.[/size]

[color=crimson]Short term:

1. [b]Find a job that doesn't affect my blood pressure negatively[/b]- Mostly self explanatory. A sub-goal tied to this one might be '[b]Try not to kill my general manager[/b]'.

2. [b]Work out my murky plans for the future[/b]- College? What courses? No college for another couple of years? What do I do then? Travel? Where to?

I don't feel as if I'm in a race against time or anything. I just need to choose what I want to do.

3. [b]Vote for the first time[/b]- The Texas gubernatorial election is coming up and I'm going to do my best to not apathetically skip it. Kinky Friedman all the way, baby.

Longer term:

1. [b]Adopt[/b]- I was adopted myself and would like the opportunity to do the same to a child in need. After having a helping hand haul me out of my difficult situation I think I should offer the same helping hand to another.

2. [b]Learn an instrument[/b]- I adore music and think I would have a great time playing an instrument on my own. It'll probably end up being something unspectacular like a guitar though, lol.

3. [b]Travel[/b]- I've already become fond of traveling in the last couple of years. After getting my license I've gone on road trips by myself to several places, lol. I'm not sure if this is a goal or not. I'd say it's an unshakeable addiction.

******** goals:

1. [b]Have a climatic, explosion-filled duel with either: Gavin, Ezekiel, Shy or James[/b]- Anytime, anywhere chumps.

2. [b]Work with Prick Wizard on the new zoological field of 'elfology'[/b]- He and I will make great strides in studying one of the most oft-overlooked creatures- the humble Elf.

3. [b]Summon a new face in the world of angry spirits: 'Sardonic Sara'[/b]- I don't think I know what I'm getting into..[/color]

My goals are:

1.) to become a celebrity although a life like that is tough especially with the no privacy thing but what the hell there's a lot of money in that industry.

2.)to publish a manga with a story i just keep in my head. If better i would like it to be as an anime series and hope it will become famous.

3.)to eat the best tasting ramen made. that was my long dream, i love ramen, and like i said i want to eat the best, but in all things best there can be something better than the best.

4.)to be a great anime artist or manga artist. this one's also related to my second goal, if my own anime were to be released i want that i could dub the main character myself.

5.)to build a gundam, not just any toy figure, but a real 25ft. gundam. Along with the high tech weapons and stuff.

6.)to learn Kendo, I've always want to try kendo, but i have no time. and maybe sometime i may create my own sword style

7.)and of course to satisfy myself before i die, this one's easy to figure why.

[FONT=Times New Roman][COLOR=Red]Goals for Mr Fury to accomplish before passing on:

no particular order.

1. Dont fall in love.

I've gotten into a couple of realationships and they didnt turn out too well, it ended up with the girl saying "No. Leon. Go Away." or getting slapped, or kicked in the groin.

2. Learn how to speak another language FLUENTLY.

yah, I know how to speak Tagalog["Filipino"], Japanese, Spainsh and Russian.

BUT NOT FLUENT ENOUGH TO SAVE MYSELF OR ANYONE ELSE[if i had to, and wanted to(the second choice is very very very slim, I'm an evil person)]

gotta find a good multilinguist in Vegas, this summer.

3. actually play my bass gutair correctly.

at the moment I'm taking gutair lessons at school, but they arent working!

4. Go back to Japan.

I lived there at least 7 years ago, I found the culture and customs very very cool and different. I've missed my home island of Okinawa! :animecry: I just want to go back and start life anew, probably start my art career out there too, and I have to get 7 plane tickets for seven of my friends, they would love it.

5. exercise more

gotta get rid of all this gaming/computer gluttony, but hey at least I gained two pounds, from 114 lbs. to 116lbs. MUST RUN.....NOW.......!

6. Make it through high school.

I'm only a freshman, but it feels like a personal hell.


7. Learn self defense.

who knows? I could run into Yakuza while I'm in Japan.

8. Stop being a guardian angel.

I'm sick of watching over somebody, but every time I dont want to, I end up sticking up for her or defending her, in one way or another. I'm not her boyfriend. I HATE IT.

9. Be happy with the hand God has dealt me.

because, I've hated it for 14 years.

I've never appreciated what my friends found in me, that made them my friends

I've never appreciated my parents, albeit I still live with them.

I've got to bring my self esteem up.

I've gotta live every day like it's my last.

I've Gotta be nicer to everyone around me, and myself.


thank you for you time.
