    Do you know what you want out of life?

    Not exactly.

    I want to keep tap dance in my life in some major way. I'm interested in choreography. I'm interested in NOT adhering to the standard dance company format. A tap dance band would be better. I want to choreograph with my friends. I also want to collaborate with my friend (who's in theatre, and wants to get into directing) on choreography and movement stuff. Basically, I have these ideas/projects in my head and I want to do them. Not so lucrative, but you know.

    I want to be fluent in Japanese. Maybe live in Japan? I don't know; I'm happy here and I'm happy in America. When I get to the point of fluency, I don't really know what I want to do with it.

    The things I'm interested in don't seem to be a "normal" combination... So, I have no example to draw from. Hooray.

    Are you happy what direction your life is going?

    I'm not unhappy with the direction my life is going. I actually don't even know what direction it's going, to be honest. My life after July is kind of a huge question mark right now.

    It might be hard at first, actually. Most likely, I'm going to have to go back and live with my mom for at least a year due to my massive student loans...and take whatever job(s) I can get. If I can stay at home with no living expenses, and put all of my income toward my loans...hopefully I can make a dent in them. (I hate being held down by money.)

    Besides, I have only one other plan in mind at the moment, and I'm going to have to wait at least a year to apply for it. I was thinking of applying to the JET Program...basically you live in Japan and work as an assistant English teacher at middle schools and stuff. The only reservation that I have here, is that I'm not necessarily interested in teaching (it actually kind of scares me)...but what else is there for me to do? I need to do something. I've found that inaction (just sitting around and thinking) is pretty much useless for figuring out what you want.

    What are you doing to change your current circumstances to get to where you want to be in life?

    Studying.

    Tomorrow I'm heading to a tap studio and taking a trial lesson... See if I can do some "networking" (that concept makes my skin crawl) here in Japan in the tap community.

    I feel like I should be doing something as far as applying for/finding a job for when I go back home...but since I'm not going to be back until the very end of July...is there anything I can/should be doing right now? I have no idea.

    What motivates you to achieve and finish what you started?

    Having a strong sense of shame and failure helps. But really, most of the things that I start are things I want really bad in the first place, so I don't have a huge problem with motivation.

    As far as things I don't really want to do, that I have to do...well, if I don't do them, most of the time it negatively affects the things I do like. If I think of it that way, I'm way more motivated.


    Of course, none of this stuff is set in stone. At all. Things could be dramatically different. But this is what I've got at the moment.

    Do you know what you want out of life?

    I just want to be happy and do what I feel is best for me.

    Are you happy what direction your life is going?

    I guess so, I'm going towards my dream of making films so hopefully I will end up somewhere that is pleasant for me.

    What are you doing to change your current circumstances to get to where you want to be in life?

    Actually pushing to myself to do things instead of just thinking about them.

    What motivates you to achieve and finish what you started?

    The feeling of looking back and seeing that you actually did something.

    Do you have aspirations? Tell me about them, are they in the present, mid range or long term.

    My aspirations are mostly permanent adjustments to attitude. I want to be able to keep the perspective I sometimes have of the big picture which makes it easier to treat others with kindness.

    I have career aspirations but I keep those under very careful scrutiny, ensuring that my motives for seeking a higher salary than the world mean are pure. And I also continually check myself to make sure that this aspiration doesn't overtake the other, more important ones.

    Do you know what you want out of life?

    I believe so, yes, though this seems to be ever-changing with experience.

    Are you happy what direction your life is going?

    Very much so.

    What are you doing to change your current circumstances to get to where you want to be in life?

    I am trying to cultivate an appreciation for the things that really matter in life, and more importantly, acting on that. I'm of the firm opinion that the physical things I need will be provided for me if I first seek the proper attitude. But I'm also working my butt off with nitty gritty physical details of a move and financing college. Direct action can certainly be a powerful part of the equation.

    What motivates you to achieve and finish what you started?

    My significant other, and to a nearly equal extent my own desire to be a pious individual.

    Mine seem to be mid term ideas that generally are a bit vague. I have business aspirations and personal growth aspirations that are interchangeable.

    Do you know what you want out of life?
    Yes, to be able to trust to love, to live abundantly and without fear from my family.

    Are you happy what direction your life is going?
    This is a gradual process, right now I am in a neutral place where I'm neither unhappy or satisfied with my life, this will change.

    What are you doing to change your current circumstances to get to where you want to be in life?
    Increasing my social ability so that I can express myself better with people in person which has kind of stalled. I am looking for share places and keep putting it off to look for individual places to stay at. I love my privacy and yet this won't challenge my perspective and comfort zone.

    What motivates you to achieve and finish what you started?
    Sometimes when I am clear minded I think I know, then I falter and motivation goes. Supportive people do motivate me to achieve and finish what I start. It seems its like fuel, without enough affirmations I run out of fuel and the motivation just goes.

    I want to find out how I can motivate myself when I get flat and learn from what works for other people and what doesn't since this is one of those issues that manage to crop up in life, shared wisdom is good wisdom.

    What is this "plan" that you speak of? I only see contingencies and ways to approach each one.

    My plans are more like ideas of different ways things could turn out and how I might have influence on that. The idea is to be open to opportunities, really. I see some possible scenarios of different aspects of my life:
    A) Work
    -1) I get my current project done, it will get me to new project/ job
    -2) I don't get it done
    B) School
    -1) I will apply to a school and get there
    -2) I will not apply or get in
    C) Housing
    -1) I will move in with some friends in the city my school is going to be
    -2) I will move there alone
    -3) I will move there with someone else
    -4) I will not move there

    Now, these all are related to the others. It seems pretty likely that I will have to move to another city, since I know the possibilities for work and school are there. It seems partly out of my control with who I live there, but I would prefer to not live alone, because of the prices of rent and other things. To me it seems like the main thing now is to get the project done and making sure I have the option to join a commune in the near future. If things go as I "plan", next year I will be studying in another city, living with my friends and getting paid for the project I have been working on.

    Yes, in a way I do, but it is also sketchy and it doesn't really go too far. I don't know what I want to do when I am sixty, that is. Professionally I want to get into a position where I am respected for the things I do well. I want to have enough money to live comfortably without selling my soul in order to get it. I also want to have people close to me. This is a big question for me, since the way I see it, people seem to sell their friends in order to get careers. I don't know what I will do with that, but I can't really do anything now, so I leave the question open. I might get a family, if the circumstances are right. This also seems like a too distant future to be thinking now.

    Yes. I am happy for how things have been going for the past five years or so, and I am confident that my life will continue to change for better.

    I am creating myself opportunities in a quiet way. Soon I'll move in with some of my friends that I know will be moving to the city I will be moving to, so if things go well with us, I see a chance there I might move there with them. Also, I am taking part in some projects that are work-related but more like a hobby. I think this will also have a chance to get me in some real money-projects later on. Basically, I just do the things I like and expect that I will get better in it so that someday someone might pay me for doing it.

    If it is something I like, then there is no problem. But if it's not, then I will have to force myself into doing it. That's not too nice.

    I'm not a planner.
