I wanted to become spiderman.

If I planted tarantula hair into my hair follicles, I'd get their powers, so I could climb walls and shit.
Then I'd make my own web blasters, just like peter parker.

Maybe with future science, and with a small loan of a million dollars, I could still pursue it.

A producer in Hollywood doesn't give two shits whether or not you have a degree in music. He cares that the score he's listening to will go well with the visuals. That's it.

Get some of your stuff recorded and get it out there.

it's really stupid, but my childhood dream was to be a drifter and never be tied down. just travel the country, working odd jobs, making just enough to stay fed, meeting people and seeing new places.

i'm not afraid to work. i've done everything from manual labor to office management to food service to industrial sales. i'm not lazy.

i just don't like staying in one place for too long, worrying about what it takes to maintain a house, being stuck in a rut.

but i failed. i got married. i have a house. i have a long-term career. and i hate all of it. in my closet, there's a massive camping pack with everything i need to just walk away from my life forever and start over as a filthy hobo. i think i would rather go for it and fail and die, cold, starving, and alone in a ditch by the side of the road than keep doing what i'm doing now for the next 30 years.

but i'm too afraid to leave.

I wanted a big house, nice car, hot wife, all that crap.

i wanted to become a soldier
realized it was bc playing vidya and actually being a soldier is dumb
then i wanted to be a musician
i didn't have the patience to learn even guitar because i went too deep into punk rock, drugs, and booze
then i wanted to kill myself
buddhism and hard work fixed that one
Now i'm learning to become a software developer. I don't want to become anything anymore. Though i don't do the meditation now, it was great for healing the soul and the mind, but i never believed the esoteric mumbo jumbo around it. I just want to work, play vidya, practice on guitar again, work out every other day and get a fuckbuddy. i'm still at least 2 years away from real peace, but i had to learn to appreciate it.

Don't get me wrong, i'd still cheer and applaud at the sight of all the men, women, and children of this world burning to ash. But this is alright too. And i'm not even nearly as edgy as most people you'd meet.
>>
>>704457333
I still dream of flying. I never had the money for a pilot's license so I do desk-top sims and Radio Control models.

I'm old now. 51. My health is not good enough to get a license now unless it's something like a Light Sport Aircraft.

I have several sets of plans for small wooden aircraft, and as a cabinet maker I could easily build one if I had the money.

Maybe I'll win the lottery or something...

Thats so sad.

This whole thread is so sad. All these dreams crashed by reality. All our hopes and goals that could not be achieved. And now what? We sit and rot in this damned website, wasting our lives. How much are we going to live? 70?100 years? How old are you anon? How much time do you got? And one has to wonder... What is the point of it all. At the end of the day, we go to our bed, sleep and then restart. We retire at our 60s. Sick, tired, unable. And then, one day, we do not wake up. And what did we achieve? What was the point of trying hard to be successful? Did you build an empire? Did you rule a kingdom? No. All you did for this world while you lived, your biggest change on earth was moving the earth that will now burry you beneath it.

Why not pursue your most stupid dreams anon? You won't live much to enjoy anything, so why not take a risk?
But none of us does. And when you look back it's too late. It's always too late.

>>704457798
Hope that you will find a solution to get this money anon, really :)

Always wanted to write. I'm not bad and have so many ideas for novels in my head ... they are probably shit in reality.

Have to pay bills, work and two kids take all my time so I can hardly stay awake when I get them to bed.

Can't be fucked to type more than I have to ...
>>
That's the worst thing, isn't it lads? I vividly remember how full of hope and dreams I was. Then life just smacks you good and leaves you to wonder if it would've been better not to dream at all.

Mid teens was when shit became tumultuous. Family quarrels, court cases, zero backing from any relatives at all. I was essentially a living, breathing proxy war medium between two sides of my family. Just couldn't afford to stay in Uni without support. Working that job to support myself however immediately conflicted with academics. Drained of resources and motivation, I just ended up living with a buddy and working as a bartender for some years, while gaming away my loneliness and ignoring my ambitions as they screamed at me to not let all this time go to waste.

I'm a weak-willed individual, but I like to think I'm not hopeless. Military service kind of jolted me back to life, reminding me that a little hardship goes a long way.

I think I can feel some of that good ol rush again - the desire to act, not ponder. I like it. Good feels for a change.

yea my best friend went off to military uni this september, from the stories he tells, it can be a lot of fun once you get used to the shitty lifestyle. Not for me though, i don't want to sleep in one room with men every night. If i wanted that i'd just go to prison.

he tells me most guys there are massive betas and he has easy time intimidating them. I guess that's how they wanna become men.

Couldn't figure out what I wanted to be when I grew up so I just fucked around hanging out with friends and fucking girls. Took too long figuring out I want to be an actor. Live on the exact opposite side of the country from CA. Kicked out of mom's house. Living with a friend but have no job. Every time I apply to a job it makes me depressed that it's not a step towards school and it feels like there'll never be enough money to get where I want to be.

To be a guitarist like Dave Gilmour who paints amazing aural landscapes that makes people ponder the big important questions.

Lack of support from parents, mostly. I always wanted to design a Jaguar, but the parents just laughed at me constantly and kept telling me I should be an artist for Iron Maiden. No idea where to begin, no idea what I needed either skill or equipment wise. No internet back then either.

Eventually fell into forklift truck driving. I'm 33 now, and am strongly considering taking a welding class so I can learn how to make an off-road buggy.
