Post subject:  The Goal of Life

In the past few days I've had a lot of time on my hands. That's why I've been here or on the internet. Shouldn't be this way but hey whatever.

Got me thinking though. If I could do anything I wanted, and knew that with enough effort I'd get it done, what would it be? This is a thread for those sort of things.

I'm going to state first off that these few things are NOT allowed, because not only do most people want to do them to some extent, but they're also not that hard to do if your heart was set on it (or impossible/implausible completely).

Travelling the world (not that hard if you're set on it)
Learning every language fluently (impossible)
Becoming a billion-jillionaire (implausible)
Having sex with tons and tons of girls/guys (tons and tons and tons) (not that hard if you're ready to have sex with tons of girls/guys who are uglier and/or very slutty)
Other ridiculous things that aren't going to ever happen, no matter how hard you try.



Here are mine:
Become a poet whose work recieves the title of epic (as in an epic poem), or even national epic (though I don't know for which nation)
Live completely secluded in Siberia for one year, surviving.


Of course I have many other goals, most of which I know I will accomplish, or will try desperately to (not dying before I can have a legit child, living in Denmark), but I will probably never write an epic poem, and I may never survive in Siberia for an entire year. You know, your bucket list for things that you probably wont ever get to.

Make and learn to properly use a slightly cumbersomely large halberd. I feel like that'd be badass as hell to be able to wield.

Go to England and meet someone I really need to meet, and/or make a revolution or something like that in Brazil.

Get married and have my own family.

Find a way to help people who really needs it, I don't know, maybe create a fundation or something and make sure that it is working as intended, or maybe working for the government and make it more humane.

Become a physycist and learn a lot of physics, help on investigations, etc.

Get an important award for doing something that really contributed to humanity.

That is an awesome thing that i hope many people aspire to get. c:

On a more personal basis, if i could become a known artist/game developer/writer/webcomic dude and make a living from it, that would be super rad. As of recently, i've deducted that this would be an ideal existence for me, since it also has room for good ol' gaming.

I'd like to at some point be able to create a functioning firearm at home (not just like a musket or zip gun or whatever). I am not sure about the legality of this, but it would be a pretty cool engineering project. I've been thinking of getting a ♥♥♥♥ ton of lego and create some sort of contraption with that. Just to get my head around the basic mechanics needed to create a cycling firearm.

Oh yeah I want to finish my webcomic too, at my speed that's probably going to take another 12 years so it seems worth noting.

My goal in life is to experience what it's like to be in a combat zone, killing enemies of the United States so that the citizens can keep their rights, I want to see what it's like to end another human's life because he tried to harm the U.S.A, I want to feel what it's like for someone to be begging for mercy and I laugh at them for being pathetic then putting a bullet into their head for being so weak.

In short term goals (short as in maybe 10-20 years) is to get my body into phenomenal fitness. Mainly to pull off physical feats (too many to count, but each is quite possible thanks to me hitting the genetic lottery), but also so that I can get to an older age of 50-70 without my body completely wasting away.

And lifetime-goal wise, my only wish is to be remembered. Not really like OMG FAMOUS PERSON, but just like maybe some kid a few generations down my family tree to look at a photo or hear a family story of me and be inspired to get on with his life and blast away some goals.

Whenever Norway invades America, I wanna meet painbringer on the battlefield and shove a battleaxe into his skull.

You have an axe, I'll have a gun.
