    heres what i posted to facebook an hr before watching The Clip

    And then there's those moments when all your dreams have been whittled down to one, and you realize that you might not want to keep it after all, and that you'd like to reinvent your future experiences. You begin to dream and get excited about one or three directions. Then you realize how much work it will take, how short your attention span is, and you wonder if this dream will end up like the others, unfulfiled bc you lacked the tools to keep your momentum. That is followed up by achnowledging that doing nothing gets you no where fast. The end result is ... interesting - like walking a knife's edge where reality and possibility meet.
    IF only i weren't fed up with my own inadequacies, and actually remembered/accepted that fact often enough to let other people help and support me.

    I envy kids. they need only do what they are told. im enterely too opinionated to do justice as a strict yesman. I love to dream. I want...for me to be confident about the direction i want my life to be...both in the next few years, and next few decades. im great at contingency planing, but lets be honest: the daily grind of getting me there by myself, wears me out fast :/
    I cant be the only one who wants to reach the end goal AND enjoy the spontanious!

    4. To have it be a dream job, I'd have to be allowed to not "sell" my courses. I am not a sales person and my main issues with my current work all revolve around the "keeping parents happy" and "explaining yourself to the kids" part of things. I'm not paid to keep people happy, I am paid for them to learn from and for them to become college ready. In teaching college, I would be paid to share my thoughts and teach students how to think. The end. No keeping students enrolled, no motivating students, no disciplining.

    1. mbti type
    AHAHAHAHA! Let's not and say we did.

    2. present job
    I've got two. Till worker in retail \ general office worker for haulage company.

    3. dream job
    I don't know, one that doesn't feel like work because I enjoy it? But maybe some medium of telling stories. I think human experiences are all stories and that we exist to create narratives in order to cope with being what we are.

    It's also integral to our evolution; without imagination we would never progress and even a pragmatic achievement like understanding how to create a fire involves a kind of meta-story. Maybe animation though, I like that medium.

    4. conditions

    No pressure.
    "An upsidedown wire heart
    Being sucked into a periscope
    Still the mind is dull
    Like you need another excuse"

    … a theory is primarily a form of insight, i.e. a way of looking
    at the world, and not a form of knowledge of how the world is….
    .. all our different ways of thinking are to be considered as
    different ways of looking at the one reality, each with some
    domain in which it is clear and adequate….

    2. Giving people diabetes drinks at half price at a well known coffee shop chain whose logo is based off of a Greek mythological character.
    3. Either doing something artistic like graphic design or providing nutritional consultation...or being a professor.
    4. Have the pay be livable/help me pay off loans, have me become increasingly involved in the consultation process and not just on the side, not doing three things in a day and have to sit at a desk and do nothing for the rest of it. Dental would be nice, too. Not working for a morally corrupt corporation, mostly if their immoral decisions directly affect me.

    2. I'm currently a student studying for my master's in mental health counseling.
    3. My dream job would be to be a singer or a writer, but at the same time, I'm really in love with the career I'm studying to get into that it's practically a dream job as well.
    4. With singing, the conditions would be to be in control over my own contracts, sing what I want, no selling out. As a writer, pretty much the same. As a mental health therapist, my dream for the future will be to have my own practice, but not in an office environment. I'd like to do group therapy in a natural environment, but once or twice a week I would have a half day session that wouldn't focus 100% on the actual therapy, although that would be included. I would like to be able to take the group out on a boat to expose them to a different world (I feel people need positive environments) and have activities that wouldn't focus only on fun, but would also consist of teamwork, relaxation (meditation), and experiencing the environment and letting it affect them (give them a chance to experience something positive to open their minds to new ideas that exist, that positive experiences are out there they may not have thought of or known existed, etc.), journaling, etc....snorkeling in a tropical reef area, maybe sitting in a circle in the ocean on surfboards to sort of combine therapy and environment together.
