What are some of your life-time goals?
I'm talking the goals you want to do sometime before you die.
Not the ten year goals, not the career goals, but random little things you want to do before you leave this place.

Mine are:
1. Have a library in my house, with every book in it i have read. With a lock on the door, and a comfortable chair.

2. Visit Kyoto, Japan.

3. See my Daughter graduate college

4. Be debt free. (maybe this will happen after i die...)

5. Scuba dive in the great barrier reef.

Edit: Adding things to list.

6. Learn to ride a motorcycle.

7. Spend a month (or more) in Scotland and Ireland.

Edit: Adding yet more things

8. Jump out of a perfectly good airplane.

9. Find an m-class planet (sort of a career goal... but damn the notoriety!)

Been working on this for a while. I'm pretty picky about the books I get as well - I try to stick with nice hardbacks whenever possible. I try to add a few books to it each month, as well as scour second hand stores for deals.

Some random non-career related goals:

Travel - I want to go everywhere and see everything. I've been to about a dozen countries and 40 states, and as far as I'm concerned, that's just a drop in the bucket. My short term goal is to visit Great Britain, Paris, and Rome all before I graduate/start my career.

Learn to play the piano - I've decided to educate myself musically. I picked up a cheap keyboard and some books and am starting from there. I took a couple years way back when I was in juniour high, but I didn't care much for it then. Been making a little progress.

Cook proficiently - I've lived the bachelor lifestyle so long I've finally gotten sick enough of ramen and TV dinners enough to actually start cooking. So far, not doing to bad. Hard part is working up the motivation to do it...

I miss half price books from Texas... I miss it a bunch.. I scour garage sales... I read almost anything, so my collection, so far has well over 2000 books.... I had to buy a few more bookshelves to house them all, and since i got back from vacation, i noticed (ok so i bought books on vacation... sad but true) that i may need another bookshelf!

Learning to play the piano is hard work! good luck!

I love cooking... I've been experimenting with a mix of asian cuisine and french cuisine... it's makes a rather interesting taste combo!

Koutasan: Don't worry.. I had those same goals when i was your age too! They are honerable goals... You want to have a successful life! Good luck!

Duster...I like your style...I always wanted a Library in my home....and now i have one. It doesn't have a lock on the door, cuz I want my kids in there, but it does have a couple of comfy chairs...

1) I want to go to university....education, but I'm not sure of my majors, and i don't want to go at the same time as my children...I'd like to be done before them.

2) I want to learn scuba diving, too.

3) I want to get my books published.

That's about it...of course I want to see my girls grow up well, with confidence and strong values, but that's not really a goal, more like a career, which I am already started on!

Hmmmm nice topic.

1. Own my own business. Probably a Massage Therapy Clinic.

2. Become Proficient in a second language. I started teaching myself japanese but I know that it's impractical, I should really learn spanish.

3. Have a family. 4 kids to be specific.

4. Own houses in different places. So I can spend summers here and there.

5. Travel to Japan and sing Karaoke. Seems like fun.
