What's... your dream?

  1. My dream is to become an actor. Sadly, even if I got talent, I don't have time for it and my parents find it silly and stupid. One more thing is that my parents don't have enough money to afford it, they do not have enough money for drama institute or whatever it's name is. It is possible to become an actor, but not for me. My parents want me to study sciences like chemistry and physics. I also study Business and Economy, but all these four subjects, I feel I am doing something wrong. It is like if I am doing something that I do not like, I do not see myself happy doing experiments or ruling a business. I am scared that I will end in nowhere because I am too afraid to change the subjects that I study. I just do not know what to do, I know I got talent, but I am not sure if I got enough of it. I have seen kids performing waaaay better than I could imagine. I just need help, please help me to decide.

  2. I don't really have a dream, since I'm still pretty young. (13) I wanted to be a YouTuber (and it still kind of shows) but because of the whole COPPA/FTC thing happening on YouTube, if it doesn't change, then that's the only (partial) dream gone.

  3. I’ve always wanted to become either a doctor or a programmer. I stuck to studying medicine for a while but recently came to the realisation that medicine might not be the perfect fit for me; I find memorising terminology sometimes challenging and time consuming. I also love to procrastinate a lot, a habit which I cannot get past but almost used to it and altered it to my liking, for example as soon as I get back home from school, I would do some staff work instead of normally watching some YouTube videos then study for a bit of time.

    Medicine also takes a long time to study, can take up to 10 years if you want to specialise in a specific branch of medicine. I’ve recently loved computer science again (I used to adore the subject back when I was a kid and still do whilst achieving high grades in it) and I’m planning to study software engineering at university. It requires hard work and devoting time but since I like the subject. I feel like I can study it enjoyably!

  5. Is it a bad thing that I don't really have any dreams? Throughout most of my life, I have never dreamt of getting a specific job position, visiting any specific place and all of that stuff. I guess my life must be pretty boring then. You could say the same for mineplex even though I had recently joined the Map Testing Team, something I had my eyes on for a while.

    Regardless, it was interesting to see other's responses and I must say this thread itself is pretty unique. Good job honestly!

  6. *ok I have a ton of dreams it’s called being an INFP*

    I’ll start by listing two of my long term dreams.

    1. Meet some of my online friends IRL so that I can have as much fun in real life as I do online

    2. Become either a psychologist or mental health researcher/therapist

    Overall, there’s way too many dreams I have including some that are private and I don’t feel like sharing, but those are two that I really want to make a reality.

    Great question :)

  7. Don't feel pressured to share anything xD They both seem like really interesting goals. Can I now refer to you as Dr. Scarlet?

  9. My dream is to either become a famous YouTuber or an author. Why? Well, to start off, a YouTuber, because well, I can play Minecraft and record it and simply make money off of that. So it would be really cool if I could become a famous gaming YouTuber. Either that, or a Minecraft Animator, which I haven't yet tried. But that seems less likely, since I only have 20 subs right now. (YT: ShatteredAbyss_). Okay, so why an author? The truth is: I just love to write in general. Don't hate on me xD. I've always had a knack for writing my own stories and people have always commented on them positively. I think it'd be really cool if I published books and made money that way. Welp, those are my dreams, which are doubtful to come true, but it's still nice to dream :P.

  11. Hi!
    First I wanna thank you for sharing your dream, this is a really interesting thread! My dream is becoming a children's nurse and playing lacrosse in college. I'm really passionate about helping others and I really wanna be able to help children and their families. I also am very passionate about lacrosse and wanna step it up to the next level.

  13. Yes!!! Forensic science is an amazing science to learn. You actually get introduced to it in Canadian high-schools in around Grade 11. They use a number of techniques, like Mass spectroscopy to find what a sample is made of, or by separating the samples by density in a centrifuge, then using mass/volume/density to determine what the sample is. Those are the ones I've heard of, but it's not my passion, so I wouldn't know much.

    Sounds like the American dream! That being said, your ideas really varied. "A normal job" -> Neuroscience -> Psychology. Personally, the brain's fascinating, and considering we haven't even been able to fully map a brain.
    I'm actually at an arts school, and all my friends are art kids. Guess what- this is not actually uncommon. You need to pick what's good for you in the long run. If you think you could learn to be passionate about science, and you think that's the most viable choice- maybe it's worth the work. On the other hand, if you truly believe in yourself and following your dreams, the choice may be acting. What I'd recommend is ramping up both. Try your hardest in the sciences, and in the meanwhile join your local community theatre- audition for roles in commercials (both local and with big companies). Whatever you do, it's important that you feel good about it. Because at the end of the day, we're only as happy as we let ourselves be.

    "I have seen kids performing waaaay better than I could imagine."
    As a music kid, this is something you have to recognize and get over. Work on your own goals. Memorization, getting into the character, writing your own scripts, improv. Set goals, cross 'em off the list as you persue 'em (In The Heights reference). That's the best advice I can think to give... If you keep both options open, you may find your parents are more willing to accept Drama, and if you get to the point where you think it's a viable career option, at that point you could make the choice. Straight up quitting doesn't in favour of academics doesn't seem right to me. But just focusing on academics doesn't either.

    Yes! I've looked into Canadian Medical School and for us, it kind of goes like this.
    Year 1-4: Undergraduate Program, Life Sciences.
    Year 5-8: Medical School Program.
    Year 9-10: Specialty program.
    Year 11-12: Some specialty programs can actually take 12 years rather than 10. Insane, right?

    Being a Doctor is a lot of work, and in Canada- the average you need for it is usually in the high 90s', like 97%+ for some universities (convert that to GPAs if you'd like, lol). For me, memorization is easy. I grew up in a very old-school middle school, where we had spelling bees, blackboards, etc. We'd have to memorize 1000 words per spelling bee, once a year, etc. We'd have latin class, as well as in English we had to take roots of the English words and memorize them.

    For example:
    [con] -> together
    [flu] -> flow
    confluence: flowing together.
    Example: A confluence of rivers.

    Anthor example:
    [hedon] -> pleasure
    [ism] -> doctrine
    hedonism: a doctrine involving devotion to pleasure.

    I definitely recommend working on Memorization, as being a Doctor involves a lot of Biology (who knew!!). It's also something you'll want a lot of community involvement for, so start now! Hospitals, Senior's homes, lab assistant, research assistant, etc. are all great positions.

    Very normal... For some people, dreams take a while to manifest. For example, my Civics teacher got into Travel, and only in recent years found her calling. She started a company from nothing, offering personalized tours in Amalfi, italy (via amalfi is the name, fyi). She built it up over the last 3-4 years, and has now sold it for, and this is not an exaggeration, millions. She now works under the company she sold it to, as a manager, following her passion of tour guiding, and made it perfectly economically viable as you can see, from her success. She's 58. Life is a learning experience, and you may not have a specific dream now, but you'll get there.

    I love writing. I've been published 6-7 times through school, and 3-4 times in local newspapers and magazines. Writing for me is a hobby, but it's perfectly viable as a career too. Writers get to experience the world on another level, mastering the English language, and really using their mind to explore beyond the realm of what is physically possible. Love it!

    Aha! One that's eluded me. I'm not a very sports-oriented person, so I don't have much to share about this. That being said, I wish you good luck!!!

    That's all folks...!
    I promised I'd get to all of you. And while I did pick and choose for replies, I got to most of them. I hope you guys like what I had to say, and keep on sharing dreams everyone! I've got lots more to share!

  15. I... don't know!

    My entire life, I have had an aptitude for technology. I use some form of it every single day, and being the inquisitive person that I am I took stuff apart, looked inside, and put it back together. I have always been fascinated by computers and the way they worked. This fascination has led me to pursue a career in anything from Computer Science to IT, but every single time I think of a career I would enjoy, it changes. Sometimes I think I'd like to do some form of professional writing. Sometimes I think that I want to be an astronaut. Sometimes I want to do Civil Engineering. It honestly changes so much that I can't even spend a moment to think about what my dream truly is. In other words, I don't have a specific dream per se, rather a strong desire to be successful in life. I want kids, a happy family, a nice house, a dog etc. In the end, I guess it doesn't even matter. I just want to make sure that I end up pursuing something that makes me genuinely happy, so I guess you could say that is my dream.

    If we're talking right in this moment, right here, right now, it's to make as much of an impact as I can on this sever. After returning to the community in October I fell in love with it again. I made outstanding friends, met amazing people, got amazing opportunities, and just overall felt like the community was stronger than ever. That passion grew into a desire to benefit the community and do as much as I am personally capable of to improve it. I plan to join subteams, contribute to ideas on the forums, help people in-game, eventually become staff, and do whatever else is required in order to make a change for the better on this server.

    Like many others, my dreams change. Sometimes more frequently than I want to. A year ago I wanted to be a surgeon, and now I'm thinking about so many different careers in so many different fields.

    I have loved reading all the responses to this thread, and I just want to congratulate you for making such a well thought out and inspiring thread. Good job dude! :D

  16. Hey!

    I have multiple dreams, my dreams on Mineplex are to become a staff member and hopefully to be able to make it to the sr. mod team on recruitment or staff management!

    However, my life dreams are to become an airline pilot one day. I've already started taking light school and have been doing so in my "ROTC" program at my highschool. It gives me my two years of flight school for free, normal flight school is very expensive. I will only have to pay half of the fee since I would of already done the first part of training for free! However, I don't get to actually fly till I go to real flight school.

  17. That’s cool! I love to fly on airplanes and my father is a pilot! Maybe some day I’ll be riding on a plane flown by you! XD

  19. What's my dream? Indeed... I had long forgotten, but once upon a time, I too had a dream... I dream of becoming one with the cosmic flux, and entangling myself within the web of the human psyche. I am passionate. I want to experience what it means to feel joy, fear, sadness, ecstasy—all these wonderful human emotions which permeate the evergreen.

    Can you ever seem to become fully satisfied?

    When I try to "become fully satisfied," I struggle a little bit to create a lasting calm or happiness. I have trouble making the reality of the present moment come over me easily, like a shower of love, a light gentle reality.

    Do I really have to dream to fulfill the dream? There's a difference between dream and fantasy. Dreams are the moments in the day where we are discovering what the universe is, not only of what it is not, but what it can be."

    But at what cost? What does awakening take

  20. Being in college this is something I actually think of a fair bit

    I have pretty varied interests and honestly, I could see myself going into a lot of different things, living a good life, and enjoying it... so I really don't have a set 'dream' that I specifically wanted to work towards. At one point when I was younger I could've probably said that was the case, but nowadays I'm interested in Chinese, Game Design, Computer Science, Tabletop games, statistics, data analytics, self improvement, fitness, etc.

    What do I want to be? I could be a lot of things and be happy, so for me, it's more about being known for who I am/what I've done, or at least seeing the impact of what I've done. I'm satisfied with what I've done here, so I've moved onto other things that I'm currently working on
