I'd like to have a career in the brain / neurology field-----PhD, MD, whatever. Neuro-psychiatry, Neuro-psychology, Neuro-biology, brain research, neurology research.....

I'm thinking a PhD in neuro-research, or brain research.....

I've been told many times that I would make a good psychologist----but, I know I wouldn't because I don't know how to distance myself from someone's problem / ailment / whatever. I'm too altruistic for my own good, and can take-on someone's problems and "wear" them as my own.

Regardless, I just want to live in a library and learn everything there is to learn.

Right now, though, I wanna go camping this Memorial Day weekend so badly I can't see straight----but, I don't have the funds.

A life goal? I guess my life goal would be to become successful in the career I choose, and find myself. (Figure out who I want to become and whats my purpose in life.)

I was actually thinking about this a week ago and updating what I want to do with my life. The family thing is pretty much out at my age, even though I can still find a "Hunny" at any time. So the other thing would be to pursue the career. I'm already set in the nursing field, so I would stay with that since it is interesting and provides a good income. I don't think I can do hospital work though, when I am older. I was thinking the best thing would be to pursue the nurse practitioner degree which is now a doctorate (one up from the bachelor degree) and get totally out of the hospital setting. I'm already in the bachelor program and can have that completed in approx. 2 yrs. I have nothing holding me back - no kids, no husband and I have the perfect work schedule to allow such learning. So that's my "goal" plan for now.

I also have always wanted to live in a brownstone like the one below. I wonder if they are only located on the upper East coast or if they have them in other places. I just think they are so cool! And it would have to be on a tree-lined street which would look really beautiful in the Fall! Possibly my second goal?

To have a comfortable life and to find another soulmate( my first wife died almost 10 years ago and it is very hard for me to connect with people ).

At the end of my life, I want to have:
- experienced many years of stable, constructive work
- influenced my community in a positive way
- inspired appreciation for my unique traits (rather than hostility)
- published the story living in my mind
- found a community I fit into and established a good life free of serious conflicts

To be the best Wolfman I could be.

NurseAngela: that looks like a brownstone either in Harlem, NYC or Brooklyn.
