(This past two weeks have been a bit rough, so I figured I could use a lighter AI than usual. Right? So, okay.) Due to my turning twenty years-old next weekend, I’ve been constantly thinking of what I have accomplished so far in my life and what I had planned to have done thus far.
Among some of the most practical goals that I actually managed to achieve (learning – or at least getting started with – a fourth language, getting a real job that I actually like, getting to know my country a little better), I think what I’m most proud of is knowing what I want to do for the rest of my life, and understanding that a big part of it has nothing to do whatsoever with the profession I chose: I want to write.
Fiction and real stuff, papers and letters, politics and all those things that may or may not change the world a bit. Writing is the only thing that remained static in my life since… well, since I learned how to do it. (And Queereka is areally big step at that, which is why one of my current goals is being a slightly better contributor over here).
So I wanted to ask you, from a point in life where my biggest accomplishment is figuring out what I want to accomplish:
What did/do you plan to do with your life when you were/are twenty? How is that different from how you live and what you’re planning right now?
