Life Goals

In the process of cleaning out my life before I head off on the Appalachian Trail (more on that later), I came across a set of life goals I wrote when I was 18, almost a decade ago. I was pleasantly surprised that the general trend is still well aligned to what I care about.

So, here they are then:

  • Be happy
  • Fall in love
  • Obtain at least 3 unrelated degrees
  • Speak at least 5 languages
  • Be able to play Flight of the Bumblebee
  • Be involved in a professional show (musical?)
  • Hitchhike through Europe
  • Publish a book
  • Go into space
  • Find faith or belief
  • Be able to discuss classical art and music and literature
  • Obtain a foreign passport (British/Canadian)

    Great goals. So wise already at 18!

    I didn’t know Flight of the Bumblebee was your favourite. Is it still?
