View Full Version : Life Dreams vs Reality

What did you dream of doing with your life while you were still in school? How has reality measured up?

When I was younger, I wanted to be a stay at home mom and author. Now? Yeah, not happening.

I never really had any dreams. Sad.Likewise.

I admire people who did, and accomplished them. I was always just sort of, "meh".

That's good and bad. For one, I've never accomplished anything very impressive, but I've also never been unsatisfied with how life's turned out for me.

I make decent money... got my boys. Hell, things are alright. Certainly could be a hell of a lot worse.

Everything happens for a reason. I went through a time when I was really disappointed when I realized life was not going to go according to what I had planned. It took me until not too long ago to let loose of the reins a little, just go wherever life is bound to take me, and be content with it.

I don't recall any of my real dreams. Dreamt about finding a good woman to be with, accomplished that one. Dreamt about getting off the farm and making good money. Got off the farm and am making meh money.

I think this is what being a Jehovah's Witness does to you. Denies you dreams. You're taught that the world has nothing to offer you and it all needs to fucking die so Jehovah can remake it.

My dream, Ms. luv, was to be an International Playboy. I was handicapped, however, by the fact that my family was poor and we had no jet. Plus, in my home town, the girls were, for the most part ... uh ... cosmetically challenged - not the best place to begin a career as an International Playboy.

I still hope that, one day, I shall achieve my dream. Or, perhaps, I shall be reincarnated as one of those bad boys. In the meantime, I sometimes speak in various and mysterious dialects to the beautiful and witty Mrs. FAX whilst engaged in the "encounter amore" which, in some small way, seems to help suppress any residual feelings of regret.

Dreamed of being a paramedic, after watching the old Squad 51 TV series... Went to school and did that for 13+ years, then got hurt/burnt out. Wandered from job to job and landed a great management position I have now in the Hotel industry. So there's no telling were we will end up. Very happy doing this, but always willing to try another new job if I need to.

As for personal life, wanted to be married happily ever after.... 2 divorces later...F*ck it!!! got my kids, and very happy being were I'm at.

I would love to take that advice. However, I've got a little debt to dig my way out from under. Couple of years, and who knows? Maybe I can go back to school. Maybe I'll be married. Maybe I'll be forced to live outside of my comfort zone. We can have the best of intentions, but, even controlling what we can, we never know what the future has in store for us.

When I was a kid I wanted to own a car wash. Not a car wash where somebody else washes it for you, or a tunnel you roll down and your car gets washed, but a stall car wash with marble stalls and gold sprayers and a circle lot for everyone to pull their cars around and wipe them down. No mini vans, 4 doors, or mud caked vehicles allowed. Now I just work for the man. I still want a car wash, but with an indoor driving range over the river combo.

I'm focusing on the count your blessings part of this post. Thinking back, if I had gotten married at a young age, I would have gone from depending on my parents to at least partially depending on my husband. I've been able to prove that I can survive on my own and fend for myself. It's a good feeling. I don't need someone to complete me. I would like someone who compliments me, though. Anyway, seeing women that go from man to man to man because they don't think they have it in them to be on their own frustrates me. I'm glad I'm not one of those people.

And WTF? I'm not even drinking tonight! Maybe I just need to go to bed. :)

It's allegory, Mr. booger. Good God. Do I have to explain everything around here?

The "Crap" is a metaphor for man's mortal existence. The "Triscuit" symbolizes man's unquenchable desire for a state of bliss. Therefore, the "Crap" overwhelms the "Triscuit" leaving man often forlorn and dissatisfied. Of course, if there were "Cheese Whiz", that would stand for "Cheese Whiz" which also symbolizes the inability to "Crap".

Interesting thread. I'll respond separately for career and for personal life.

Career

I thought back, and realize that I was driven in my youth, but never in a strategic sense. I just picked a direction and ran unthinkingly.

I think I've shared this before, but once I got past the football player/cowboy/rock star stage of dreaming, I decided that I wanted to be an architect and was very interested in it. It wasn't a necessarily grand dream, but I thought I'd enjoy it.

Then, during my senior year of high school, they had a career day. An architect came in, and when she told me the starting salary of architects I was crushed. Let's just say that Mike Brady had six kids living in two bedrooms for a reason.

Another speaker talked about engineering, and it sounded interesting and paid more than double the architecture starting salary. So I went into that. For the most part, though, I had no idea how a professional career should work, so I kind of sleepwalked through that phase of my career.

From there I went to grad school, with the goal of joining the Foreign Service and working in an embassy, which I thought was sure to bring adventure. However, in real life I decided that I didn't really want to live in a third-world country, and it would've involved great career sacrifice by my wife, so I was lost in the woods until I found the consulting job in Denver, which was very interesting to me.

I did that and liked it a lot, but the company got totally screwed up, so I left and started my own company, which quickly veered more toward market research and demographics. It was initially a means of supporting myself until I finished the Great American Novel, which is currently in its 23rd draft a decade later. Nonetheless, I like this work, and it kind of suits my self-perception, which is to constantly learn and help people answer questions, whatever those questions might be.

While I idly dreamed of fame and fortune, I never really knew how to pursue it, so in retrospect I more or less just picked easy paths that were available and sounded interesting. Not exactly a stirring tale of drive and talent.

Now I'm kind of depressed.

Personal Life

On the personal front, my vision at age 18 was to have money, live someplace interesting, have a classic English Tudor home, and to lead an Ozzie and Harriet family of myself, my lovely wife, and my four children, two boys and two girls, preferably in a girl-boy-boy-girl birth order. And drive a DeLorean.

My vision evolved over the years to something that better fit me, as opposed to the above, which was more or less my naive vision of what a perfect personal life should be. I scored the wife, but we decided we didn't want kids. I moved someplace interesting, though it took me a while to do it. The money thing wasn't working at all until I moved to Denver (I had to borrow money for the truck to move here), and then advanced rapidly where I'm comfortable, albeit not where I'd like to be in retirement savings, particularly in the last year.

And what I really figured out over time is that I valued experiences more than objects. I'd rather have interesting stories than more money in my bank account, which is why I wander off to places like Madagascar and Nepal and Egypt. Traveling may be a trite way to achieve that, but it works for me. I just read an article today that said there's a link between money and happiness, but only if the money is used to buy experiences rather than things. I think I agree with that.

So on the personal front, I don't think I gave up any dreams so much as I learned over time what those dreams really were. I'm a happy guy in that context.

It was initially a means of supporting myself until I finished the Great American Novel

You're Philip Roth?

I think I'm more of a Sal Paradise but with a broken pencil lead.

Interesting thread. I'll respond separately for career and for personal life.



Fifth grade - Stay at home mom and author

Seventh grade - After significant weight gain over the summer, I decided that boys were not a sure thing for me. No hubby = no kids. I also knew that I couldn't support myself on trying to get started writing. I was VERY good with numbers, so accountant became new dream.

Senior year - I started getting involved with a church youth group, and I had taken a Psychology class and fell in love with it. By the time I graduated high school, I decided on Christian Counselor.

First semester of college - Major in Psychology with a minor in Religious Studies. Was making a C+ in my psych class, and making the highest grade in my English class (instructor's emphasis was on creative writing).

Then, well, life happened. Dropped out of school to work more hours and pay bills. Been doing that ever since. Heh.

Personal life? Dreamed of finding someone to spend my life with. Still dreaming...lol.

My dream has always been to have a job that I enjoy going to every day. Always wanted to either work in sports or be a cop. About a year and a half until I graduate and I plan to become a part-time police officer to go with something in the sports field. If the job market is lacking, I'll either become a full-time police officer or enter the military.

I wanted to be so rich that I could afford a building large enough to give everyone in my family their own floor. Hell, I haven't even been able to own my own place yet. :sulk:

Never had dreams about a career. Never knew what to dream about. Always kinda lost. Still am I guess because I hate my job but have no clue as to what I want to do.

I've had one real dream for my entire life.

I'm working on it.
