Goals


We all have to have goals, or we should anyway.
I've decided to make a list of the things I want to be when I grow up, to help my perspective I suppose:

1. Piano Tuner
2. a wraith or at least an UE
3. Teahouse owner/operator
4. My own personal clothes designer/sewing mistress supreme
5. Linguist or translator of scripts, at least for my own amusement
6. Gardner, esp. orchid grower
7. Cello player

These are just a few things that I want to focus on. Which means I need to quit my job....

quit your job and and live off your rich husband?

Amber said...

uh, yeah, that's the plan, totally!
whatever man, whoever you are anony. I plan to MAKE MONEY doing these things.

Amber said...

kind like andy warhol, people paid him just to be a cultural icon!

cassie d said...

didn't you just buy a cello?
have you been taking lessons?
i can't wait to hear you play!

What happened to the gallery owner? you already know someone who will run it for you!!!!

my goals:
1. peace corps
2. move to st. louis
3. move to Europe
4. increase my metabolism so i can eat whatever i want
5. have a cabana boy at my disposal

they're pretty much the same, right?

Amber said...

pretty much,
I didn't include moving to vancouver or europe because that's a "where I want to be" not a "what I want to be"
that, my friend is awholenother list in itself.

i know your not so rich husband is so awesome. and cassie didn't you send your cabana boy back to nicaragua or someplace in central america?

cassie d said...

and what are the wraiths and urban exporers?

i couldn't read all that stuff cause it made my eyes bleed. BUT i DID see the important part on how it was endorsed by Wil Wheaton.

Good Job, my friend.

Amber said...

hmmm, those anony things sound suspiciously like a capricorn

cassie d said...

um. i demand to know who knows about that INS call!!!!!

Hell hath no fury, like a woman scorned!!!

Amber said...

what?! wtf dude? what is INS?
The UER is Urban Explorer Resource, the Wraiths are a group of super-ninjas in Vancouver, BC. They go to old abandoned buildings or even sometimes partially occupied. Anyway, you have to check out their missions. I love it.

cassie d said...

INS, baby
Don't cross me, or you'll get deported!

Amber said...

ah, I was lost, I guess I was stuck on figuring out the anonymous poster. I know that they're not THAT anonymous.

Laura said...

I think that you should be a cello player. I've never met a cello player. On the side you could make/design clothing which I could wear for you to "try out."

Aaron said...

Immigration and Naturalization Service, a federal bureaucracy. As you can tell by the massive influx of foreign trespassers in America within the last few years, they're about as effective as you can expect your government to be.

My goal is to own my own airplane. I don't plan on making money with it, but I surely do plan on enjoying it.

Amber said...

Plane would be cool.
I did take lessons on my cello for awhile and had to quit. I want to start again. So Boo and I can play cello/viola duets. Or piano ones too.
So many options, and just growing older year after year.

Gina said...

When I grow up, I'd like to be:

1) Bookstore owner
2) Independently wealthy
3) Writer for Arch City Chronicle
4) Photographer
5) Web Designer/Graphic Designer

` This has inspired me to think about my future....

` 1 - World-famous writer.
` 2 - Mad Scientist of Some Sort. Or at least Regular Scientist.
` 3 - Hilarious Musician-type.
` 4 - Also, my own personal clothes designer/sewing mistress supreme.
` 5 - Linguish or translator of scrips, at least for my own amusement.
` 6 - Artist of some kind, photographer, drawrer, etc.
` 7 - Maybe a Wraith or something. I really need to get out more.

Amber said...

Wow, we'll probably end up meeting each other if we fulfill our wishes when we grow up quine. But being a wraith is more about getting in than getting out. There are a lot of people actively doing stuff like that near you, you should find them! I bet a mad scientist would be a useful addition to their operations.

S E E Quine said...

` Indeed! And if we ever do fulfill our wishes when we 'grow up', how old do you suspect we'll be? Forty?

Amber said...

Well, age is a state of mind, so I think that is irrelevant.

S E E Quine said...

` True. BTW, new post with pictures!!

S E E Quine said...

` Well, my next-best apartment choice is $450... surely if I made any money off o my dreams, it wouldn't be too much for me.

S E E Quine said...

` Found some cheaper ones, thankfully. I'm going to stop this now.

Aaron said...

Amber! You and I agree on something! Age is just an arbitrary number. After a certain matuirty level is reached, age alone should not be used to measure anything but the number of candles on a cake. I hate ageists. I hope I don't turn into one when I get older.

S E E Quine said...

` It's true. Mental age is really more important - my mental age is about 19 or 20. I have a lot of catching up to do.
` It also means that I need to find a delicious man of about that mental age.

S E E Quine said...

` New post!!!!

cassie d said...

wow. that was an old post, a-ron. Back when PSYCHOKCMO was still posting!

Aaron said...

Yes indeed Cas. It certainly was.

The wisdom in the post, however, is timeless.

heather said...

I also agree about the age thing! I really thought I was going to hate turning thirty last year, but it honestly made absolutely no difference to me. The only thing to make me 'feel' my age is when I find the occasional grey hair, which either gets plucked or covered with hair color!!

S E E Quine said...

` Crassus sounds like my dad - he's actually incapable for taking responsibility for anything, and he'll make up stories about how everyone in the world ruined his life.
` But I guess you know all that. Indeed, it is my dad's full time job in life to bring misery to, and direct blame at people.

Aaron said...

Spoony, could you elaborate on the term 'delicious' when you're referring to men.

Amber said...

D-uh, A-ron, obviously she's refering to men made of dark chocolate!..

S E E Quine said...

` Uh... yeah, that! Or, he could be sweat-flavored. Whatever.
