TIME MACHINE BUT THE OTHER WAY - 2018

edited April 2008 in Social Entropy++
Guys ten years from now where do you want to be? And where do you think you'll end up?

By 2018, I want to be: I want to have written and published my own art book by then, and actually be making money as an artist. I don't ever see myself with kids, but I could see living in some kind of common-law condo in the city.


By 2018, I will probably be: Sucking cyber-dicks behind the olive hypergarden. More realistically I'm probably going to have work a 9-5 job doing computer tech work or (more optimistically) work doing graphics and advertising for some kind of commercial venture to pay the bills, while I paint and draw in my tiny bachelor's apartment at night.

On Tuesdays and Thursdays I travel to my once common-law, now estranged wife's house, to pick up my son for the evening. We watch cartoons and I don't understand them anymore.

    I walked facefirst into a door on my way out from a job interview today and then turned around and knocked over the receptionist. So I'd like to think I'll have my dream job by 2018 but I just don't see it happening.

    By 2018 cars will still have wheels, we will not have space colonies, there will be no megacorporate factions warring over resources...

    shit man in 2008 I will be 28. That is a strange thing to think about.

    Hopefully by that point in time I'll have formed a band that is marginally successful, at least enough so that I can play music for a living that way while I make pretty artz as a hobby.

    Most likely, I'll take option number two and work at a graphic design gig while mourning the loss of my hopes and dreams.

    Unless you want to be in a cover band or you're a phenomenal musician willing to make your money doing studio recording for other people's albums, throw any hope of playing music for a living out the window. It's not that it doesn't happen, it's that it's astronomically unlikely to happen to you. Or to anyone in particular.


    Get a day job that allows you to schedule time off, and you can play music all you want. You can even tour.

    rich?

    I guess I would want to be doing something that I love, finally.

    I thought I'd have wanted to have kids by now, though, so I really don't know where my life is heading.

    Trends suggest that most of us will not.


    Of the remaining few, there will be several camps, including those who have migrated to become regulars of different subforums, those who have only stuck around because they eventually became moderators, and those who just post every now and then to talk about how much better it was in the good old days.

    Yeah, that's what will most likely happen. I suppose "make a living" was a wrong phrase to use, since having a day job that allows me to tour was really my intention. It doesn't help that I know several friends who have bands with decent-sized fanbases getting my hopes up.

    And hi5 to you too Rolo. We could form a company together! A big hulking tower of despair and fancy logos.
