Come On!

Write here what is your dream, what do you expect to be doing in the future in the best of your dreams. We are willing to read it.

Let's see, I will start:

To be sincere, all my efforts last years have been directed to studies. And that's not a casuality. When I got into ME, I promised myself my future was not going to be as usual as the future of the rest of classmates and friends. And since I come near fluid mechanics and combustion stuff, I got more interested on propulsion systems. My secret dream is to work in something related to Aerospace propulsion, emulating Von Braun, Koroliev, Goddard, Tupolev, Dassault.... I will be the happiest guy on world if I could touch the Space Shuttle with one of my hands. Maybe my enrollment in Ph.D. Aerospace Engineering in USA for next year is the start point of my dream....or the confirmation of my failure....nobody knows.

This is my dream, tell me yours. :smile:

PS: you are all privilegiated, nobody except you know what is my dream. :rolleyes:

Not much of a 'secret dream' any more eh matey?! :smile:

Here's mine (subject to change):

I have always maintained a balance erring on the sociable side between my studies and fun. Travel, music, and several other activities (which shall remain drinking) fill out those hours when I'm not actually doing anything academic.

I want to be able to retire while I'm still young and healthy enough to go round the world to do silly things. As a result, I plan to become a kickarse R&D engineer, swiftly blag my way into a 100k job for a few years. Then, I will have enough skills to be able to set up my own lucrative business, which can be run from behind a leather-top desk, and where I'm allowed to get my hands dirty whenever I want. All being well, I'll be able to take my own 7-figure retirement deal at the age of 40, buy a few choice properties in choice locations, a few select automobiles, and see the world properly.

Amongst all this will be juxtaposed a lovely family, fine health, and a good dash of happiness. And my mum keeps telling me I need to get my priorities straight! :smile:



Ooh, and lastly, I keep meaning to brush off my climbing gear and get to the Alps for a summer. And Astronuc can teach me some winter skills any time he sees fit.

Okay, this may sound far-fetched:

My dream is hard to relate, because I only have an inkling as to how it would work. I want to create, let's say, a 'mechanical procedure' (or set of separate procedures) for 'creative writing'. And not just any writing, but the next Shakespeare. Well, the system will be adaptable, but my version will be the next Shakespeare. Eh, yeah, that's it.

Hopefully, everyone will think I'm crazy and not try to beat me to it. :biggrin:

I hope to obtain a stable job/earn a decent salary >70,000 annual would be more than plenty, and establish a regular schedule, enjoying every day of it. Nothing too spectacular, but hopefully win some awards, get myself entrenched in a special research topic and discover, be efficient, and basically be good at doing what I do. As for marriage, not too concerned at the moment, I think that I could do without marriage.

I dream of having a big old cottage in the country miles from any where, and
be self sufficient, have a huge work shop with all manner of machines and tools
to keep me occupied, and a twin engined aeroplane so i can go any where i want, and female company, The cottage would be sited in a rolling green and
partly wooded land scape.

Have you realised the only people who didn't talked here about money was Grotesque, Tsu?, hornestrosswater and me?

The rest of dreams of yours are linked to salary and material possiesions.

Maybe I am too young and I have not sighted the importance of these stuffs, but I would like to keep on dreaming on something which is not directly linked with earning lots of money in the future. I think that making lot of money a month is an indirect consequence of you are happy with what you are doing everyday.

I wouldn't be surprised if a Moonbear-bot will come out in a few decades from wherever Heman works.

ehemmmm.... yes, I need it, and I am going to be paid for researching. But here in Spain, working as a professional, I can earn five times more than doing a Ph.D. in USA.

Yes, but don't forget I am going to be the spacecraft commander. I will give you the pleasure of stepping on Mars while I see you from the spacecraft in orbit, because some unaware man has to take the risk of landing there. I could throw you a water bottle from up there if you see the mars ambient too dry :rofl: .

Perhaps I'll be serious just for once:
My dream is to be the lover to the guy I've loved for the last 4 years.
Unfortunately, I'm not his type, and he himself has been besotted with a good-for-nothing straight guy even longer.
I'm grateful for the friendship we have, even though I wish it could become something more..
AWW, poor old Arild.

Yeah, I pity myself occasionally (not on the age matter, though, the guy is older than me).
