Understand the world, develop groundbreaking and cutting edge technologies, understand cybersecurity and hacking / tapping, form a band and allow the world to see a brighter tomorrow.

Nothing too ambitious, of course.

There are different layers to it.

I at least want to live alone with a cat in a secluded forested area with material security while not working for someone else.

I have an adolescent dream of becoming a successful commercial music artist . I've never stopped progressing, although social difficulties have made things slow.

I would, given the lack of obstacles, attempt to secure unilateral domination of the planet and all humans. I consider this a method more than a realistic goal. It's about evolving from helplessness and prostration before authority fed through my political obsessions. If I actually had this power, I would wield it to distribute resources more intelligently and focus on population reconditioning to evolve mankind from divisive and backwards internalized biases and cultural programming with the intent of preparing a unified species towards colonizing space in order to ensure with the greatest certainty possible the perpetuation of the species.

My life goals are to become a successful singer, actor, and writer whereupon I'll have a sufficient amount of money to comfortably live off of, find someone to share the rest of my life with, raise a family, and to make Mermaids cool on a level similar to what Twilight did for vampires and werewolves (though hopefully better than that) or what The Walking Dead did for zombies.

While I don't want to sound depressing, I gave up on aims and goals when so many things happened... Things seemed to collapse around me. One thing I do want to do is move north, have an income (As no income is limiting) and that the income is not a struggle. Also then to get married... Umm. I think I need a willing lady for that one who will tolerate me and I am happy with her... :) She must tolerate trains! Haha.

I used to have very different goals. Starting a business and then expanding. Things like that. All that has gone. The want to do any of it. Also even the thought of stepping up the ladder in life no longer has any meaning to me.
The thought of marriage is nice. Two people looking after each other. Best friends. Lovers. Almost being married once did have me understand a lot of things. Concepts I had not thought about before.
