I wouldn't call this a game, exactly, but it IS really fun to do!

What is your dream life?
Forget reality, for awhile - it doesn't matter if you're working in fast food right now, ect. What do you want your life to be like?

What career do you want to have, and why?
What kind of house do you want to have?
Do you want to be rich?
Where would you live?
Married? Children?

I love learning about people, so this should all be really interesting to me - remember, it doesn't have to be realistic - if you want a gigantic mansion with 1,000 sex-slaves at your service, go for it!

So, what's your dream? smile.gif

I want to be financially comfortable- living a life of constant worry about bills getting paid is stressful, however grounding.

I find it really hard to say "oh! Dream house, job, life etc etc" because anything I want is attainable- if it wasn't, I don't see the point in wanting it. When I was much younger, I decided that my dream job was to study octopus, specifically research their behaviour. So I'm currently studying for a BSc in Marine Biology at one of the best, if f****** remote, universities for it.
Here was my dream life 8 years ago when I decided What I Wanted To Do When I Grew Up...

I would be a marine biologist, getting paid to study cephalopodic behaviour both in the field and in captivity. I would go diving a lot, do conservation work with local communities to explain how their behaviour had an effect on the local marine wildlife, and to figure out ways of sustainable fishing. As it would be work through a university, I would also be a lecturer: encouraging students to be passionate about science and to further their career in the field. I wanted to start having children in my mid-thirties after getting a foothold in my career and we would live somewhere not too far from the sea, in the countryside. Old house, big garden- plenty of space for an irish wolfhound to run about in and for visitors to get lost. The house would have to have studio space, a book room (does it sound any less pretentious if I call it a book room rather than a library?) and a good kitchen (with a pantry) where food making went on with people sat around helping.

Bring it up to now, where I have to start making decisions about this kind of stuff, and things have changed somewhat. I have been told by multiple doctors that if I want to have kids, I need to start in five years time. ('Phaba, I'm most definitely one of those people who *needs* to have babies.) The Husband figure will also have a life that will mean compromise between the two of us, and so I don't think that I could be a lecturer. That'll have to wait until I'm older, and can go back to uni to do a PhD. In the meantime, I'm vaguely leaning towards some sort of highschool teacher type thing. Yeah.

Dreams suck.
