My targets/goals: -Stay alive in case scientists discover immortality, then get it. -To work for DC Comics -Stay alive in the hopes that I'll find the love of my life and the feelings I have for her would be mutual. -Stay alive in the event that if my life goes downhill, live as a hobo with a college level intelligence, get discovered by an agent, do what he says until I'm famous enough to drop him, then die famous. -Oh and to see the Justice League movie
My target in life right now is my family, my parents in particular.
Both of them are slightly disabled and need daily assistance; paying a nurse to come to their home's way too expensive and neither of them are quite disabled enough to go into homes at this time. So my siblings and I sat down and decided that, since I was the only one who didn't yet have a family or own my own home yet, that I'd be the best one to move back home and look after them for a while.
Personally I don't mind; it doesn't set my life back any and I'm still accomplishing everything I've wanted to do.
I'm proud there are people like you. I think that children are more disobbedient to the parents, they don't respect them. Saying this, it seems I'm old but I'm very young, a teenager but I don't agree with the behaviour of them. Usually, when parents become old and need help, children turn their head and let them into houses. They never think about how mum and dad took care about us, growing up us, staying awake in the nights just bacause WE couldn't sleep. If they took care like that when we were vulnerable, weak and innocent, Can't we give in return a little love when they need us?
I think there should be more people like you in this world, If not... I don't try to dare how the world is going on.
That's why I did it and continue to do so; they gave me life and looked after me all those years and, although I could never pay them back for giving me the miracle of life, I can do my best to help them now that they are the ones in need. It's the least I can do, I believe, an I don't mind at all.
And yes, I've noticed that also. It makes me sad and angry when children disrespect their parents like that; they gave us LIFE for crying-out-loud, they deserve better treatment then to be ignored or forgotten in their times of need! Some situations can't be helped, I realize that, but otherwise our elders and our parents especially need to be respected and taken care of by those of us who make up the following generations. So I believe, anyway.
I do wish there were more of us in the world that saw things this way.
Hope is the last which dies, but I wish it'll die very late because we need it too much I wish life will give you all you need and deserve.
You know, in my religion we say that under mother's feet there is Heaven: If she prays for you she gives you a place in Paradise. And I'm sure you have got your place there already. Your parents, I'm sure, love you and are thankful to have a daughter like you.

I know that some people are apprehensive about robots becoming too human-like (i.e. the android video). It's understandable with things like The Terminator, Blade Runner, and GLaDOS.
I daily visit sites like www.ieet.org www.hplusmagazine.com www.wired.com, the singularity hub and a few others, among them general science sites. It gives you a pretty good overview of the current developments.
Today I took the stuff of the future timelines site ([link]) and correlated it with my own life. Basically: how old am I and where am I with my life (working, retired, etc.) when they expect this or that to happen? Of course it is all predictions and no date is set in stone, by still I think I have a good shot of seeing it all happen the coming 40-50+ years. A nice exercise
That's a great idea. Everyone has the right to the education, so better that it's amousing. Kids don't like to do something boring, if you make them joy they'll start liking studying. Good luck! (Pocoyo! xD)
i'm not sure. really i don't know. But there is something that tells me to continue everyday, the only problem is that i don't know what :/ i think it might be my littlebrother :3 my heart aches if i don't see him, and i can't wait to see him smile
This is a very sweet comment... I think world needs more love, nowadays siblings fight all the time (me too) and they don't see their opportunity to love someone just to the start of their lives. It's really hard to find someone who loves you at the first sight, infact we have to be glad to found easily someone (brothers and sisters) who loves us just becaause we are who we are. Parents and siblings are the first (only) people who'll love you for ever.
yeah i agree... me and my little sister fight all the time, about the smallest things! it frustrates my mother, and i can't watch her like that. I try my best to stay calm, but my sister doesn't understand. she always wants a fight -_- so yeah.. i try my best
"I'm starting with the man in the mirror I'm asking him to change his ways And no message could have been any clearer If you wanna make the world a better place Take a look at yourself and then make a change, yey Na na na, na na na, na na na na oh oh" Man in the mirror- Michael Jackson
Great words my friend, great words. Everyone is special, we must try to make a change, try to make the world brighter, so, let's start with ourselves.
Big things always start with little things. Long travels always start with little steps. Big changes always start with the man in the mirror.
I want a good house Seriously - I spend 90% of my free time at home anyway, I'm not really interested in travel or anything that puts me out of my comfort zone, I like to find a good spot and establish myself in it, like, oh - a sea-anemone I'm not one to go out a lot and do frivilous, expensive activities or hobbies, I'd rather just put it all into my dream home - make the place I barely leave as cool and fun as possible The house doesn't need to be huge, as huge houses can be creepy at night when you're alone, and a bitch to clean But it must be modern-looking and at least look like it's younger and newer than I (the house I'm in with my family now is puny and probably 60+ years old, the roof is covered in lichen and almost everything inside and out needs renovation ) I want a house I wouldn't be ashamed to invite people to. And a large beautiful garden to keep me busy (since I actually like that stuff and would love enough yard space to get really creative, can't do much with standard/small yards ) and I would really, really like a swimming pool in there too, I'd incorporate it with my tropical-themed garden design, why travel when I can make a Bali beach in backyard
Ugh, but such a place with that much land around it would cost at least a million dollars, and that's in today's market. I fear I just may not get it, even with my really good money-saving skills and drive to earn even more. I just don't think I'd be eligible (or even interested) to get any job that pays enough a year to afford such a place
I think your words are good. Adtually I spend most of my time in the house. I don't really like to go shopping, go out. Actually I don't like to take a step out of my house. I just want a peaceful place where I can relax and THINK. We run too fast in life, we just should stop and stare things around us, we should think.
I hope you'll have your dream-home, I hope you'll be fine and happy. Good luck and don't forget to invite me too xD That will be the only one time I'll be happy to go out.
Same here, I'm not one to go to clubs, bars, big events etc. They have too much stupid people And I barely go shopping since there's little I want anyway and I'm feeling more and more like everything costs way more than what it's worth I have noticed life goals like having a family or travelling the world are popular, but they're always second priority to me, a case of "If I can afford my dream home AND that, then I will"
