Do you have a dream?

Recommended Posts

One of the things I've wanted to do for a while is be a computer hardware engineer and make designs for one of the big tech companies (but not Apple). However, my real dream is to become a race car driver in rally, formula drift, or touring car races. Besides that, I'd love to be a car tuner and post videos of my projects on youtube as well as help other people with their builds.

I used to have a dream to "be someone" but I never knew who.


I became obsessed with finding out my "purpose" in life and in being the most authentic version of myself that I could be...

...I ended up learning that ideas of purpose are a construct and an idea people buy into for various reasons and that there's no epiphanic revelation awaiting me about who I am and what I'm supposed to be doing in life.

I really wanted to be something or be someone or just be anyone but me.

I don't feel that way anymore; I'm happy with who I am and I think I now really do know myself.

I did recently purchase a bass guitar with a view to putting in the time to learn it as an instrument as thoroughly as I could (I have a lot of time on my hands) and developing my own unique signature style...

...but, I got some worrying test results towards the end of last month and need to get more tests at the end of this one, so that's on hold for the moment.

It seems I might not have the time I thought I'd have, and working with a shorter time-frame made me think about all of the video games I've spent my life collecting but because I was so busy gathering them to me, never got around to playing...and it made me realise how much I wanted to play them...

...so I bought a new graphics card, some liquid metal, a new cooler and re-built my gaming rig.

I don't know how things will turn out and it might just be a "blip" as the GP said, but right now all I want to do is sit and play my video games...

...one positive thing that's come from it is that I suddenly appreciate this stuff so much more, rather than it being like the chore that it was before: building my "skinner box" to keep pressing the lever to get the reward; It doesn't feel like that now.

Sounds great! I am very close to finishing my electrical engineering degree, so feel free to dm me should you have any questions on the studies or on what you can do with such a degree.

Back to the OP's question: My dream is to become a commercial airline pilot one day. I have to finish my other stuff first though before I can look more into it. I have spent about an hour in an Airbus A320 simulator with an instructor, which was really a great experience.

I want to make at least one million dollars in my lifetime. Not necessarily one million all at once on my bank account but the accumulated wealth of years of working.

I want at least one biological kid but not within the next five years. Beyond that I want to help contribute to something significant for humanity. Short term I'm hoping that I'm getting into uni, I'm first on the reserve list but that doesn't mean that I am certain to get in....


Another dream is to never die, fuck you and your "oh it will be so tragic to see everyone around you die", I want to witness the end of everything

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally)...

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 


#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.


Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

My main dream/goal is to be able to let my wife work from home.


She doesn't want a corporate life. She wants to cut the grass, repair the house, take care of the horses, work on her woodworking projects, take care of the kids.


I need to find a way to get her there. Couple of ideas right now. Don't know how it will pan out. Only time and effort will tell.


The thing I realized is, our dreams/goals are all possible if we work hard towards them. Only us can get in the way of our dreams. I know it's cliché but it's still the truth. If you work hard enough and put time in your dreams, you shall achieve them. I mean, if they are feasible. You can't learn how to fly without anything, even if you want it really bad, I'm sorry!


Take care guys!

Well my long life dream would be to make my parents happy and to fufil their dream for me. I would love to move out of where i live currently, since its not that great of a place. Every night when we are alone they tell me to get out of this place and move out, and to be honest i want to do the same. Thats why i am trying my best, trying out coding and trying to make it work, going to the best high school in the city and just in all trying my best. I really no longer can take the crappy place i live in. 



Aaaand another dream for me would be to buy my dad a cool car, since he loves cars but hasnt been able to buy what he loves because we lack the money.

Web developer is a very relevant profession of the future. More and more business goes on the Internet. The competition is becoming colossal. But the requirements for web sites are growing. Companies that order the development of the site want to get a quality product that will increase the profitability of the company. They understand that without a good ui and ux design  they will lose to competitors.

My parents still have think internet access is optional in modern day.

A few obstacle I am facing: 


O level holder only.

Foreign Expat, not local.

Currently working in a relatively entry level job with long hours.


:/ But maybe one day i'll made it. One day.

If it is not broken, let's fix till it is.

As stated in the title : Do you have a dream?

And I'm not talking about World Peace here ? or about "flying" to the far end of the universe "To Boldly Go Where No Man Has Gone Before..." ?

I mean a goal... Something you really want to achieve and are ready to commit time, ressources and who you are in order to one day be able to look at yourself in the mirror and say "I did it!"


It's ok if you don't. Some people will find very early in age something that will be their goal in life (and sometime this "goal" will change) and some people don't (ever) and they don't need one.


Me ?

I had a few, I'm working very hard at one of them atm (my daughter, project of a life time to see her grow up, evolve and become the person she wants to be) but I discovered recently a new one ?


It's this :

And no, this is NOT what I bought this year ?

It's more about the idea, the philosophy and to DIY and DITogether idea



The best dreams are those unattainable, even if one were a multi-billionaire. :/

The pursuit of knowledge for the sake of knowledge.

Forever in search of my reason to exist.

I've got the house / family / good job stuff covered. My goals are along the lines of ridding myself and my family of heavy credit card debt and getting out of the paycheck to paycheck mode we always kinda seem to be stuck in.


Finding a way to utilize my degree I spent so much money on would be spectacular. (Perhaps creating my own indie game.)

But that's tough when the job putting food on the table and letting my wife stay home with the kids takes up so much of my time, and I want to spend the time I'm not at work with my family.

I've been fascinated with AI since, oh... Since I first played Halo? Then Portal, then Star Trek, and so on. I'm working with machine learning, and my goal is to develop truly general AI. Calling the stuff we have now AI is a bit like calling a toaster a computer because it has a transistor. Yes, it does indeed perform *a* computation is the most inclusive sense, but that computation is literally just a single switch, it can't do anything else. Similarly, stuff like self-driving cars just use a very sophisticated type of optimization. The program gets better at a specific task in a specific way by more or less a game of hot and cold. AGI is capable of abstract reasoning. That's what I want to make, or at least contribute to.

I'm going to keep it vague.


One of the few dreams that I can remember having for a long time is actually feasible, and if I manage to not sit around reading Discord and LTT I might actually get it in weeks/months depending on how hard I work on it.

My dream is to write a very cool book. I work very hard on this, but now I am very busy with my term work. It is so complex that I have to resort to EssayShark . But it's okay, once I'm done, I can finally continue working on my book.
