I want do something important. Something that matters. Not necessarily something I'll be remembered for. I couldn't care less if my name went down in the history textbooks. I just want to do something important. Something that makes somebody stop, and think about their life. Essentially, I want to change the world, be it globally or for just one person. I don't how I'm going to do it, but that's never really stopped me with anything before.
On a smaller and (slightly) more realistic scale, I'd like to successfully graduate from university and move to either Toronto or London, live in a tiny flat filled with books, and become a writer- I want to publish this fantasy novel I've been slacking on for ages-or a director, even if it's just for a short indie film. It doesn't have to win Oscars, (although that'd be really sweet) but I still want to make one, because even if I don't make it big in Hollywood, at least I know that I've achieved my dreams somehow, even if it's in a tiny way. If both of those fail, then I might open a bookstore myself. I have this little image in my head of a tiny, dimly lit bookstore, filled to the ceiling with shelves and shelves of old books, stacked all over the place. Shiny new ones, old ones with tattered covers and the like. Corners where you can take a book and just read it. That sort of thing.
Oh yeah, and I guess get married and stuff too, but that's not really at the top of the list for me. I'm not gonna walk around just waiting to get married or hoping that it'll happen. I'm not going to go looking for it. I'm just going to let life take control of that little thing, and see what happens.
I honestly have no idea how my life's going to turn out, but I'm trying to make it the best it can be with what I have. I've got my plan, but I think we all know nothing ever really goes according to plan and I could end up as a lawyer or an astronaut or a designer.
Whatever life throws my way, I'll do my best to make the most out of it.
