    do any of you have a dream that is in no way dependent on the outside world

    like

    maybe the desire to do something like what Happenstance said

    move to the woods with someone you love, spend your days reading and thinking and just appreciating the world to the utmost of your abilities

    Well all the things I really want in life are based on relationships with other people so no.

    I dunno if I'd go so far as to build a cabin in the woods

    I've grown somewhat fond of running water and electricity and convenient access to food and heat and medicine

    Sometimes my dream is to move into the woods, build myself a cabin, and never have to bother with the outside world again.

    That's just a fantasy primarily.

    I think Bemis is actually doing this but with a hut

    I'm surprised more people are trying this. It was actually pretty common up in northern alaska where I was born. Lots of gold miners would just go up to their claims during the summer and not have to deal with people for at least 3-4 months.

    Although that thought became less appealing when my dad told me the story of one of finding one of the old miners in his cabin dead. He was sitting in his rocking chair with a shotgun in his lap like he was guarding the door from something.

    do any of you feel "destined for greatness"

    or an desire/obligation to rise above and beyond

    maybe the belief that you have the potential to give something great to mankind

    I always think about how much I sell myself short.

    How I could do some pretty cool things, touch a lot of lives, if only I were more motivated.

    Recently there was an exceptionally large jackpot available on a European lottery, it came to £121 million or thereabouts.

    Now, imagine the scale of that fortune, to set yourself up in reasonable comfort you don't really need that much each year if you already own property (no mortgage / rent), let's say a minimum of £10 million kept, so that even in a year where your average interest on the fortune is 0.5% you still get a fairly staggering £50,000 for the year.

    Let's say you take £11 million to buy property / shiny things in the first place.

    There is still a massive £100 million to throw around, counting up a rough estimate of my friends (both on and offline) I could probably give them roughly £2 million each, and still live in comfort / luxury for the rest of my life.

    Which is exactly what I want to do, one glorious act to change all their lives in a positive way, without really harming myself, suddenly they all have a large savings account and can pay off various debts, and sure, they might blow a chunk of it on shiny things, but that's up to them to decide.

    Vendors collect virgin boys’ urine from elementary schools around the city and use it as a main ingredient for their unusual street food. Plastic barrels are placed outside the classrooms and boys are reminded to pee in them, unless they are sick. The pee is then used to boil eggs, their shell cracked to allow the flavour to slip through, then soaked in urine and boiled again. The whole “cooking” process takes an entire day. I know it sounds disgusting, but some people say they “have the taste of Spring”, while others claim “they’re so delicious that I could eat 10 a day”.

    According to traditional medicine, Virgin Eggs will restore diminished yin, decrease body heat to help you get through the hot summer days, and improve blood circulation, but Doctor Huang Jian, from the Central Hospital in Jinhua believes “that urine is waste expelled from human body and basically contains no substance conducive to human health.”

    I don't think I've felt that way. At least not seriously. I'm of the mind that my mind is capable enough that I may not be naturally talented at it but I sure as hell can figure it out given enough time.

    having never met pooro, he is one of a handful of people i (sort of but not really) know who i could see achieving success on a level that at least involves me being able to one day read an article about him or something. or i guess put more simple, people i look forward to bragging about.

    i think it was the story of his defense of his computer during a mugging that convinced me he has what it takes

    I was named after a great grandfather.
    This was a hillbilly who easily had 100 people at his home, every Sunday, for an After-Sermon Lunch.
    A hillbilly who was known to be very generous, often mischievous, and was known to be a man of dependability.
    I envy that life and reputation, and I'm trying to figure out how to best understand and adopt those traits.

    I really think I would be happy with my achievements as a man, if my stories and influences would mirror his.

    I don't put a whole lot of stock in money, but I do appreciate that it somewhat lights a fire under my ass

    I think (I think) my ideal fiscal state would be one which allows me to pursue what I want to pursue while still forcing me to be successful at it

    i can't tell whether i actually don't have any goals or if i'm just too afraid of failure to ever act on them

    i love the new mountain goats album! it is already one of my favorites by them, i think. prowl great cain is incredible, and john's lyrics seem better than ever. i'm seeing them wednesday and hear they brought on a touring keyboardist, which i think makes the band 5 people now, so that should be interesting.

    A person who doesn't depend on others so much.

    Only then will I call myself a man.

    have any of you ever thought "I would be more motivated if I were more obviously talented at something, but I don't feel that I am"

    Oh, lord, yes.

    I am constantly strangled by my own feelings of inadequacy, I don't sing or play music because I never felt I was good enough for anyone to want to listen to, I am honestly shocked every time I pass an assessment at college, I rarely go outside socially because I can't understand how anyone would want to spend time around me.

    I tried doing a blog writing thing once, and it started fine, then swiftly fell apart. I think I have 4-5 different draft posts saved somewhere that I couldn't finish / post because I re-read them and wondered who on earth would want to read such blatant crap, I can barely find the motivation to clean or polish my boots some days, because I'll undoubtedly do it wrong on some level.

    Yeah, probably. I've done that sort of thing before. In high school I'd go to my dads mining camp out in the boonies of alaska for 3 months and do this sort of thing. I really enjoyed it even though I probably smelled like ass all the time.

'Cause when I'm not making enough money, or am in debt, I spend shitloads of time just worrying. Like anything I do that isn't specifically providing cash is a waste of time, which puts a ton of pressure on anything I do. "Sure, that might be a stepping stone into a better job somewhere down the line, and it might make me happy, but is it putting money in my pocket?"

    If I didn't have to worry about money and all, man oh man. The world would be my oyster. I could just go out and look for stories, and not come back until I found 'em.
