    Mine was to be New York Times Bestsellar by 21.

    But when I was young and dumb it was to become a secretary and regular pioneer.

    lonelysheep, have far did you get trying to achieve your goals? What have you accomplished that has given you a sense of satisfaction? There's gotta be something. I'm all ears.

    Nice topic, but bittersweet.
    I taught myself to sew at the age of 9 and made many of my own clothes in H.S.
    My dream was to be a fashion designer. One of my teachers in high school tried help me get a scholarship to a design school but I told her I would not be going to college as I was one of Jehovah's Witnesses. She cried.
    I don't think I had enough talent or patience to be successful at that but I would have liked to try. Now I still love beautiful fabric but have no interest in doing anything with it. What happens to that drive and energy?
    I did eventually get my B.A. in English many years later. I then fantasized about becoming a lawyer but I had kids instead. Oh well!

    evita, you and my wife would get along perfectly when it comes to sewing. As I have so many times said on this forum, I'm grateful that I married my childhood sweetheart a non-witness, she has helped me to keep whatever sanity is left in me. Ha ha.

    If I were one of your teachers, I would have cried also. Here's my suggestion, don't give up hope. As you said, you have the talent, give yourself that old college try and I know you will succeed. Go for it kid, go for it.

    I always imagined life would be like it was for Cinderella, that a Fairy Godmother would rescue me and I would find the perfect partner and live happily ever after. I also wanted to be a mermaid, and an astronaught. So far none of my dreams have came true but maybe the first one has some hope!

    Willow tree, don't give up on your dreams. I'm with you all the way.

    Gumby, looking forward to your recordings.
