My lifelong dream was to perform on stage. I thought I had missed my chance until I discovered flamenco. Then I achieved my dream, several times - and I must say, I'm still a bit lost over what to aspire to next, apart from enjoying life.
I had a girlfriend who got a teaching degree and decided to become a nurse, so she went to school to be an RN instead. Then she got an administrative job, and went to school for business. Somewhere along the way she shared her secret life-long fantasy, and that was to be a Las Vegas showgirl.
I lost track of my multi-degreed friend years ago. Has anybody been to Las Vegas recently????

And, perhaps get a dog
To have a log cabin in a big forest that I can use for hunting. Hopefully have a lake or stream near by to fish as well. I don't want some huge lodge, just a basic hunting cabin where I can get away from everything.
My lifelong dream has been to be a published writer, and now that I've had some things published, it is to actually make money writing and to have people who WANT to read what I've written. lol. Also, I have always wanted to open my own tea house with antique tea cups and teapots and loose leaf teas... Maybe someday!
