SO asked me a question I have never been asked before
"What are your dreams?"
I was at a loss for words, I am never at a loss for words
I finally replied to him saying
Well my dreams for myself are put on hold because the dreams I have for my child now come first. Simple things like having a good family and getting him to college, and ability to put him in sports, etc
If I consider what I really want for me I really want to travel, but even more basic..
I really want to get my PhD in Mathematics, that is my one dream that I will take as long as I need to to complete.
He said "Wow, that is impressive, I think you will do it, you shouldn't have any worries. I know you know all of my dreams, I just wondered about yours, you don't talk about what you want in life, actually you never talk about it, you just listen and never chime in"
So...what are your dreams?
I don't know what to think of SO asking me this. He asked me so randomly, like maybe he was wondering if this was it for me. If I just wanted to be a math teacher and that was it.
