I was just wondering, what are young peoples' hopes and dreams and have they achieved them? Or are they taking steps to achieve them?

I thought of posting this in 'Support Groups', but figured it would be more of a yayfest.

So, users, anyone living the dream?

Right now I'm going through a hard I think about the topic of hopes a lot. I guess if I thought about it, It would have to be in a loving, supportive, and TRUSTING relationship with someone. I haven't seen a lot of honesty and truth in relationships in my life, not just mine, but the ones aroud me too. To have friends I can always count on, and have a lot of fun with. To have crazy times. That's pretty much it as of now. And right now I have pretty much two thirds. :3

People often consider me a dreamer. The fact is, I do have aspirations that do not involve my romantic future. For instance, I want to teach... I want to help teens deal with what I always wished I could have a support for.

My largest, most important dream, though... Is finding someone who I can spend the rest of my life with. I know, I know... It's corny and almost impossible to achieve, but I need it.

I was born to love in romance, to serve in marriage, (even if I end up with a man, it WILL be marriage. I will topple ANY wall stopping me from being with my true love. I will move mountains.) and to pleasure my partner in bed.

In the immortal words of Glen Hansard, "Maybe I was born to hold you in these arms."

I don't know where my determination to find a mate came from. People could blame it on my mother, loving whenever she'd make the time to spend with me between working and raising my much more high-maintenance younger sister... Maybe some folks would blame my emotional and pseudo-sexual (it got stopped before it could evolve into actual physical sexual abuse) during my childhood by someone I loved and trusted...

I don't blame any of that. That's all bullshit. I've waded through loneliness, torn through the rice-paper walls of arrogance and hate, and fought for rights that I wasn't sure were mine to fight for.

I was born to devote myself to someone who would take me and respect me, and treat me as what I seek to be treated as: a companion and lover.

So, yes, as corny as it sounds... My lifelong goal is finding someone to love.

I am working, slowly but steadily, towards my university degree and ultimately my graduation so I can finally migrate to live with my girlfriend whom I hope to marry one day. [Smile]

My big dream? After high school, I want to attend TRU, get my bachelor of science, then a masters and one day a PhD in microbiology or zoology 8) that's almost as many years of school as I've been alive, and I'm so excited!
Also to have a 200+ aquarium for my hermit crabs, they're a little squooshed in their 60.
