Let's face it--we all dream and have dreams. Big dreams, small dreams, secret dreams. Yesterday, for example, I dreamed I was Spider-Man. You think being Spider-Man would be a pretty rockin' dream, right? Wrong. It wasn't a good dream. Why? Instead of nice, thick, rope-like strings of web shooting out of my wrists, however, I shot little fishing lines that went a total of five feet before arcing to the ground. Fail.
The web-shooting was the pinnacle of Spider-Man's repertoire! You cannot separate them. Imagine Tobey Maguire shooting little wussy strands of web out of his hand.
"Go web go!"
And now you see why this dream sucked. Contrarily, the dream wherein I have telekinesis still is the best dream I have had.
On another note, I have not yet had a dream where I am flying. I have dreams where I have the ability of teleportation, but to date none of flying. I've heard it's an extraordinary experience.
Now, to the other aspect of dreams: our aspirations. What is your dream? As a child, I toyed with the idea, as most children do, of becoming an astronaut. I threw it away after I discovered that the moon had already been explored--because once you've explored the moon, you've really explored every stellar object, haven't you?
Until I reached high school, I really didn't have any dreams--sad to say--of what I wanted to do with my life. Up till then, my real passion was gaming, an occupation of rarity in today's society. Now, I enjoy writing--the perfect vocation of chance; that is to say, you either succeed or you don't (I'm not doing a very good job explaining this, am I? How ironic.).
I don't know; maybe I should try drama instead of writing these glorious works of literature. See? There's a little imp of doubt that surreptitiously arrives to haunt you. There is almost always a shadow of self-doubt when it comes to careers. Is there self-doubt when it comes to dreams, aspirations? Probably.
Dreams, dreams, dreams. For more about dreams, please watch Susan Boyle's cover of I Dreamed a Dream.
That in no way leads me to my next topic, R.E.M. Wait--it does! You dream in the REM cycle. Done.
R.E.M. is an American rock band best known for its song "It's The End Of The World As We Know It."
Thanks for reading.
