I was thinking today about what I would really like to accomplish in my life, and there are three things that really came to the front of my mind.
1. I want to write a book. I’ve never thought of myself as much of a writer, but I’ve always had times where I need to write, if only to get stuff out of my head. It’s during these times that my longing to write a book is the strongest, but it has never really left me. I may not right a long book, and it may not even be good, but I want to write a book before my life is over.
2. I want to sing (and I don’t mean in the shower!). I have been singing since I was very young, and my love of music and singing is still strong. I’ve even wanted to make my own homemade cd, but that may never happen. I do find myself listening to certain singers and bands and thinking that it would be awesome to be in a group like that. So yea, I want to sing.
3. I want to make a movie. I have found over the past few years that I love to film. I’m not the best at coming up with ideas, but I love to take ideas, capture them on tape, and then edit them together to make a video. I keep saying if I can just get a good idea, I’m going to make a short movie, but the good idea always seems to evade me. Regardless, I still want to make a movie.
I don’t know if all of these things should come at one time, if they should be side projects, or even if I should focus on one or all of them as a career. All I know is I want to do all three of them, and if I could make a living doing just one of these things, I would be a very happy man (at least for a few minutes.)
