Are you still holding on to your dreams, even though you see them as impossible?

    I was in Anderson, Indiana yesterday checking out the old city, the two 1930's theaters, and just having a nice day. On the way back, I saw a 1960's, out of buisness 2 screen theater next to an old little mall. My dream of owning a small theater that shows old (especially horror) movies came flooding back to me. However, I know there's no way that something like that in this age could make any money, so it's a dream that will never see the light of day. If I was rich though, hell, I'd lose the money and do it just for fun.

    Anyone else have any impossible dreams they just won't let die?

    I still have goals in life I'd like to achieve, but reaching them may be highly improbable, although not impossible. I'd like to be a multimillionaire one day for example. I know it's everybody's goal to be rich but I want to be one of the few people who actually made it even though I am not that into money per se. I just want to be a success in life and not worrying about money is a nice bonus too.

    All of my dreams on completely on schedule. Barring a poorly timed explosion, I have every reason to think I'll accomplish everything I want to do in my life.

    Here's hoping all your explosions are well-timed.

    Not quiet impossible, but it will definitely be a challenge to achieve my dreams one of which is directing and writing my own movie.

    I've never really had dreams... I just kind of go with the flow. If there is something I want to do, I do it, though.

    No. I've seen too many of my hopes go up in flames. I blame no one but myself for not being good enough to make them work.

    I wake up every morning (well, every lunch time) knowing that I'm going to be wrong at least once that day... And I'm likely to fuck something up at least once a week.

    I'm too negative to have hopes and dreams and such. Like just the other day, I got the umpteenth chance to do something I've wanted to do since February... And I passed. I can't see past the effort required to get somewhere.

    Dreams of a better tomorrow are what get me to uncurl from the fetal position and crawl out of bed every morning.

    Thanks, guy.

    And I think I'll be commandering that as a toast for the Beer Fest I'm attending this weekend.

    Yes, my dreams are not impossible...it just procrastination and lack of funds that has kept me back...Money will be the big challenge because I plan to stop procrastinating soon :p

    Everything that I have wanted to do in my life I have done. Everything that I want to do in the future will happen because I have a goal and I am a very goal oriented person. The only long term goal that I have for my professional career at the moment is to eventualy get promoted to investigator.

    I took my hockey dreams and still managed to turn it into a career, so I guess it's something to be happy about.

    I have goals that are on track, but as far as dreams go...

    I've always wanted to own a lil' used bookstore kind of thing, but that's not happening in this world. Also, same deal with a drive-in, though, I think that's actually semi-feasable, if I can get my career really going and get some moneys together.

    My drive-in would be awesome, I tell you!

    I gave up on my dreams long ago, I'm much happier without them.
