40ish and beyond... 40ish and beyond...

is there anything you wish to do during your life that is contrary to your current situation?

do you have any dreams that seem unattainable or contrary to your current situation... but that would be perfectly manageable if you had made different choices?  (hence, dont say a famous rock star if you can not carry a tune)


What do you see as your main obstacle?

 Jen, I wanted to be a Dr and I am as you all know going to college to complete my dream. Nothing is an obstacle if you want it bad enough...

I honestly think I just found out what I'm "supposed to do", lol. I'm in a full-time accelerated bachelor's program, and currently taking Intro to Film. Holy crap, do I love this class!!! Everything about it just comes very naturally for me. I'm taking a double-major in English and PR/Marketing, so it seems like maybe some screenplay writing may be in my future...

huh?  The validity of your business depends on who owns the roads in front of your home?  What kind of business?

Im sorry for not understanding you...  was that a political commentary on your part or is there an actual legal reason that you can not profit from your business because of who built the road out side your home.  And if the business profits the money will literally not get to your bank account?

I must have missed what ever Obama comment you are referring to.

I have been blessed in this life and I have all that I could ask for. of course, I would love to have the time, money and "freedom" to travel more. But, if all goes well, there is time for that.

It was a comment made by Pres. Obama that was cut / edited to serve the politcial agenda of the right wing, conservative republicans (oops- that was redundant). They have a funny way of taking comments out of context and then cutting/editing. Apparently she fell for it. sheep.

Ok... I just googled it.  I read the WHOLE comment.  Seems like he made a valid point if you read the WHOLE comment.  I think I was looking for a more introspective answer than to blame others for things we are yet to accomplish.  Sounds to me, from what you have typed, that there is no one to blame... sounds like you are working VERY hard, being creative and striving for success... sounds to me, from what you have typed, you are on your way and will be successful.  I think you should give a positive spin on the whole thing.

If we have had a misunderstanding I apologize in advance... but I think someone else's words should not be considered an obstacle.
