I just want to be the next version :P


Lots of people joining the navy these days. Why? Maybe I'm just biased.... they did completely destroy everything my father had made for himself. Of course it wouldn't have happened if he wasn't an alcoholic....


who had recovered 10 years before, but oh wait! You want your career to go anywhere? Well if you don't participate in their retarded initiations that's not likely to happen. Guess what those initiations include!


I'm sure thing's have changed though. Good luck. I hope the navy doesn't completely fuck all of your hopes and dreams like it has for others.
Oh. Well that's alright then.

Not to get off topic, but what initiations are you talking about? And why do they involve alcohol..? :?

No worries N, he doesn't scare me. :wink:
Yeah.. I'm not sure arriving at USNA and hitting the first upperclassman I see is exactly the way to go. *shudders at the thought*

Anyways! Let's here about more people's ambitions and whatnot for the future.

I want to go back to school, maybe get my MSW, or my PhD in psych, and help teens in the LGBT community with their problems.

You just got my goat with the arrogance of saying anything you want is so much better and more worthy than anything anyone else wants.

Oh no, you have it all wrong. An ambition is a desire, not an expectation. I don't expect my accomplishments to be more meaningful than any other here, but an average life is just complacency, not ambition. If I have exceedingly fancy pie-in-the-sky ambitions it suggests more of foolishness than arrogance.

Of course to be objective, having your own planet with a mansion the size of texas and a thousand fancy cars whilst granting yourself immortality is clearly better than anything anyone else has mentioned thus far. If I were to say this is my ambition, then clearly some ambitions are more grandiose than others, even if completely nuts.

Perhaps, then, the only thing more foolish than having ambition is having no ambition at all. Ambition may not guarantee you success, but lack of ambition guarantees mediocrity.

Short term goals are to learn to draw, learn to sculpt, and build a fountain in the family's yard. Long term goals are get a job doing engineering work instead of landscaping, buy large plot of land, build a base on said land and have friends assault it....

Immediate goal: To design completely self-sustainable underwater apartments that can be either moored in calm waters or can be used to travel around the world.
Later, develop a fleet of such modules to build a huge mobile underwater city.

It had something to do with becoming a chief. There's some sort of ritual the sailors do, sort of like frat houses I think. I recall our neighbor had made chief as well but refused to drink, I don't remember how that played out, but I don't think it was a good sign for my dad. He had recently quit drinking I think, and was supposedly doing really well.

Then I remember there being a big fight about it, and hearing things like they'd make you walk around wearing huge weights, or they'd make you drink a bunch of beer and throw the bottles on the ground and walk through it.

Don't worry though, I'm very sure it's gone now. I'm willing to bet the navy has cracked down on things like that as I hear they have cracked down heavily on alcohol related incidents....


which, ironically, is how my dad got compeltely and totally fucked by the navy. They kicked him out, the descision made a day before he hit the 18 year mark where he would have been safe. It was unheard of to kick him out for his offence with his level of seniority in the navy. They did it to make an example, and long story short my dad lost 18 years of his life.

But as I said, you should be ok. I have a grudge, obviously, but this is a rare case. Just don't let yourself develop a drinking problem.
Oh. Well that's alright then.

1) save da earth by becoming a enviromental engineer and reshapon the thinking of society (also be rich enough to have someone else pick the pomegranite seeds out of my pomegranites)
2) live up north and be a mailman'
3) somoething involving chicago
4) plan b: be a bum in a major city
5) plan a: continue to longboard forever

i'm sure there are other things i'd like to do but i cantg think of them. i'd also like to have friends. And mabye sometimes i'm adventure starved enough to think about joining the army, but i dont know if i could actually do it.

sounds like i got stuff to think about.

Finish the last two years of my Computer Science masters degree and find a job that's somehow related to technology. Currently I'd like to take my degree into a research-based job at a university and combine it with a more traditional Science discipline (the department I study in is into Space Robotics and Computational Biology in quite a big way). However, I'm not adverse to working in programming, which would be ideally video games related, or even in a more design-orientated company such as a brand creation or web design company.

In my personal life I'd like to stay in love with my girlfriend and live together in Aberystwyth or somewhere similar (not a huge city but not a village in the middle of nowhere either). We will, of course, have dogs and other pets and generally nothing too dissimilar to the way things are at the moment. :D

Oh and it'd be nice to get my desktop pc working properly again but that's just venturing into absurdity.

I am going to one of the top level software developers in Norway :). We are a small country, should be easy eyh!?
Start my own company with a cool idea, where I can utilize a fraction of what I learned in grad school (GPU/3D-graphics).
And of course, just sell the damn thing to Google and spend the rest of my days doing thai-boxing in Thailand =)

kind of offtopic, but I want to share anyway :P
There is a great song, hmm guess it's not that great, but the lyrics are somewhat accurate, by the norwegian band Donkeyboy
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V_WQ6u9os50

After I heard it the first time I suddenly realized my ambitions were starting to fade.
I quit my current job, which was leading me nowhere. I was surrounded by people who were living by the mentality: "I came to work at 7:50, then I leave at 15:50". Their ambitions were long gone.
So now I'm on board a very, very exciting new project. Learning TONS of new useful stuff, instead of just grinding it out each day with 9-5 people. I was going to quit eventually, but the song and the video just made me realize it all the way sooner. That guy who started the new job in vid, "it was me" ;)

new more attainable ideas.

I want to join the americorps, which I will soon. Then spend a year or two doing that gaining experience (so I can ding, of course). Then I'm considering joining in a program to learn how to become a moritician type person. It's supposedly a great program. I've been told you can get hired as soon as you finished and starting salaries are like 40-50k. The field should also start growing rapidly soon, since the babyboomer boom is going to start hitting its downward slope, so to speak.


I also really want to open up a PC arcade type place. Basically it would have high end computers people can come in and pay to use. It would also have all consoles available (people would pay to use the consoles, not the games, so no copyright issues >.>). It would also have a coffee shop cafe type area where you could buy coffee, energy drinks, tea, and several types of health snacks and other good stuff to eat.

I'd also like to open up a cafe just like the one I described, except it'd also be a pool hall and have shows with the local bands at night.

The arcade type thing would have to wait until I had enough money for start up costs, but its possible. I may give it a shot some day.

THIS, is an extremely good idea, my good sir. I say, go for it. In a world that is getting more and more focused on video games, this could only work out well for you! I would love to be able to play games on a high end PC, have multiple next-gen consoles at my hands, but alas, that is all too expensive..but, if I could hire them out? In one convenient location? Perfect!

As if that wasn't enough you can even have lunch there! Get a nice cup of joe, enjoy your favorite tea, have a snack, or get a full meal, its up to you. [food may not be allowed in gaming area]


They had a place like this in hawaii called PC gamers. I would go there when I was grounded and not allowed to use my own computer >.>

They also had a small bar where they served burgers and energy drinks. I Kinda felt like this was lacking though. So I'd like to make it so you could a better range of things, and have some healthy options. There also wasn't much of a place to enjoy these things, so I'd like to have it in a seperate area.

They also, as per their name, only had PCs. I think it would be nice to have other options as well. You pay to use the console, and pick your game from our library and enjoy :D



The electricity bill would be e-fucking-normous, so I'd have have solar panels and helix shaped wind energy generators on the roof. The helix shape allows it to catch wind from all sides.

I plan on working my way to the top of this company and building some real sustainable cars, not half-arsed compromises to the hoon factor and media publicity stunts. 9.9L/100km (24 mpg)? No renewable energy or materials used in manufacturing? Freaking poor effort and we should be doing better.

My plan as of this moment:
-Finish school.
-Go to Canada straight away, become a ski instructor there for the season.
-Come back to Australia, go to uni (either comm. degree or IT)
-Complete uni degree, then go back to Canada for the season.
-Gain my TESOL certification, so I can then teach the English language.
-Move to China, teach English or
-Move to South Korea, teach English.

That's all I've got so far..

Long-term goals:

- Become a brilliant mathematician and/or physicist.

- Travel the World

- Live as long as I want. Hopefully medical technology will catch up the point where people can live indefinitely sometime in my life. If not indefinitely, a couple centuries would still be nice.


Short-term goals:

-Get into a university course that I like. Work my ass off from the start and graduate with top marks.

-Get good on guitar and start earning money from it while I'm in uni.

I'd really like to see an affordable electric car on the market. We should have had one ages ago, its ridiculuous that we don't have one now.

So, I applaud you. give us the electric car! v.v
Oh. Well that's alright then.

Become a firefighter. Save lives. Be a badass restaurant owner/firefighter, and my restaurant will be firehouse themed.

How do you spell restaurant?

Restaurant.
Also, hm. Ambitions.
(Relatively) short term:
-Get some massive fuck-off goth boots to wear with my lab coat next year
-Get into a decent university, complete a course in CS with AI and then go on to PhD level, insist that people call me 'the good doctor'.
-Aquire a female Iguana, call her Cedric.
-Have a pint of Guinness in a pub in Ireland.
-Work up the courage to cut my hair shorter than I've had it since it was shaved by nursing staff.

Long term:
-Learn to play the violin proper
-Visit every country in the world, drink a cup of tea (or nearest equivalent) in all of them
-Ride in a hot air balloon over a desert
-Go somewhere with a beach, be there from dawn till dusk every day for a week building my sand fortress, including throne. Sit on throne. Drink tequila.

My short-term goal is to get a job I really like. Not making too much progress, though. :(

Longer-term goal is to get a job with the National Park Service, or a zoo, or museum. I volunteered at a museum a few years ago, and it was awesome.

I'd love to work for the Federal Reserve... maybe as Fed chair *cringes at tissue boxes being thrown at her*

My end goal is to be a columnist/economics editorialist or an economics teacher at a high school. Then, maybe I can retire and own a little children's bookstore or something.

Economists are my favorite writers because they use brains instead of squishy feelings when analyzing things. Plus they're often funny. So good luck. And be a funny one. I don't want to be bored while reading that I'm screwed.
