In a perfect world with no what-ifs or I cant's is the following: a list of things that I believe I would like to do. Be they general activities or actual careers. The purpose of this being I ask of all of you to simply help me devise a viable path to start my journey. My current plan as stands is to seek therapy, get my medical/dental status accessed and then to re-attempt college. I know there will be difficulties but I'd like at least to have an idea where to begin with the last step, even if I end up taking a different path, a starting point would be most reassuring.
Any advice you feel is pertinent I implore you to share it. Also, because I feel it must be said, some of these may seem…odd. I ask that all of you keep this adult and please do not harass me because something I'm interested in seems childish. It matters to me and that's all that should be important.
I guess it would be easiest to start with the fantastical and work my way down to things more worldly. So…Sci-Fi. I cannot begin to describe how much I love the genre, and I oft fantasize about many a thing regarding it. In list form:
I'd love to explore the universe, the whole concept of the unknown intrigues me to no end.
I'd also love to categorize planets/species. Data entry and analysis may seem boring to some but in this instance I would be overjoyed to go over atmospheric data, mineral compositions, planetary geology, flora/fauna ecosystems, ect.
I'd love to be a spaceship builder/designer or even just the scientist who discovers how to make these things work.
On a bit of a darker note I'd be very excited about developing new weaponry/offensive vehicles/you name it.
In a fantasy setting?
Again, an explorer. Hiking through vast unknown territory, finding relics of lost empires, and new land with wonders no one has ever seen before. This appeals to me greatly.
Touching on a point from the previous, the idea of looking for the remnant of lost and unknown civilizations would be fantastic as well. Figuring out who they were, where they went and why.
Onto more worldly things…
I love to read, and Sci-Fi fantasy novels are my absolute favorite. It would be amazing if I could create my own stories and share them with others. Though I must say I do not feel I am very creative.
Flying. I have been interested in it since I was a child, and the idea of being a pilot seems incredible. I would prefer spacecraft but exploring earth in a small prop plane sounds awesome!
I love the wild places, away from civilization and hiking has been a pastime of mine for ages. If I could travel all my life I would.
I also like studying things, be it animals or history. Anything where I have the chance to discover something new and incredible.
Music. I sang for years in school choirs and took piano lessons. Those experiences have left me with a passion for music that I can't control sometimes.(I sing -loudly- in the car, much to the chagrin of my friends it seems.) If I got the chance, I'd love to compose for movies or even just write my own pieces.
I hastily through this list together before bed so it could be missing some things but all in all it covers the majority of things I'm interested in. At least in a broad spectrum. Apologies in advance if it appears a bit…erratic but I wanted to get my thoughts out before I lost them. I had been pondering this for hours prior and would've forgot it had I just gone to sleep.
If you can impart any advice, I would be glad to hear it. :)
