- Get married
- Have more children
- Buy a house
- Write a book
- Get a full time job
Now, to most, this seems like a doable list... but to me? Not so easy. I was coming off of state assistance (better known as welfare) and I had so many mountains in front of me. (A whole range of them already behind)
I can say that it took me twelve years, but I've completed all of these dream-tasks.
So, I need a new list.
Here it is:
- Have Stephen King read one of my novels, enjoy it and then have coffee with me
- Write professionally and become a writer in residence at a university somewhere
- Have one of my novels made into a movie
- Home school my children
- Age like J-lo
- Meet Loretta Nyhan
- Earn enough money to situate my mother and my gram
What do you think? Too lofty? :)
I don't know... I like shooting for the stars.
What about you? Do you have any Dream Lists?
