Default Re: American Dream

define success?

some people define success in terms of earning as much in thousands of pounds as your age.

i.e a person of 25 (like me) earning more than £25,000 is successful in their chosen field. (UK sterling, obviously the analogy is different when it comes to American because the dollar is worth less).

things I want to be...? what is my dream...? I don't know so I'll add some generalised goals...

To be good at my job
To not be content to be good at my job but also to progress in my job
To earn enough money to be comfortable
To be a good roll model
To be a good father

i also might join Rubberchicken on his crusade.

(just as a note, I already went to college and did OK on my A-Levels, and I already went to university and done good there too), already got a good job. those would have been my goals had I not already achieved them).

actually, one more goal.
I would like to practice and play guitar better, and perform so that I am known in my local area. (I have no ambitions of being famous for that though).

I didn’t fight my way to the top of the food chain to be a vegetarian…
Im sick of people saying 'dont waste paper'. If trees wanted to live, they'd all carry guns.
