Is there something you’ve always wanted to do, but never got around to starting (an activity, a hobby, or anything else, really)? Tell us about it — and tell us about what’s keeping you from doing it.
I’ve always wanted to be able to go back in time and re-do my life. But I can’t.
Because, fucking time travel hasn’t been invented yet.
So I’ve always had many regrets about my life and many disappointments in my life, some through my own fault which I accept, but what about the faults of others? Why can’t I just to back and make my life play out the way it should have. Yes, I’d completely alter the course of history, but who knows, it could mean we resurrect dinosaurs or live in space or something!
However, I accept that is merely only ever going to be a fantasy – well unless you’ve secretly invented a means to travel back in time a-la Stewie Griffin, then maybe I need to give you my number and we can hang out sometime!!
In a perhaps more realistic light, there’s a few things I’ve always thought about doing but have never after upon. Learning a programming / coding language hasn’t happened because a) so expensive, b) so time consuming and c) don’t really feel like being a poor student and living off 2-minute noodles as I begin to explore life in my 30’s.
I’ve always wanted to perform in drag. God knows I could do a much better job that some of these bitches I’ve seen ‘performing’. With their hog bodies, looking like they’ve been gang-banged by Crayola, I’m more than confident I could do a much, much better job. And well, after a recent experiment dressing up as one of the Powerpuff Girls for a charity event, I discovered that a) I hate having long hair and b) I will fucking rock that long wig like it’s nobody’s business!! Granted, I don’t actually think that this will ever come to fruition because a) wigs, costumes and makeup are fucking expensive, b) I don’t have the storage space for ANY of it, c) I wouldn’t want to upstage any of those twink bitches and get their heavily shaded noses out of joint, oh and d) I. DON’T. TUCK!! Sorry, but no.
Then of course there’s my aspirations of a successful career as a dancer… If I could go back in time, but still retain the knowledge that I have, life would be completely different and I’d be travelling all over the world with a string of amazing work under my belt. But a spinal injury kind of threw all that out the window. So… Fuck.
And I can’t forget my writing aspirations. I was recently talking to somebody about my blog and my writing goals and whilst I see them as achievable, I also see them as being highly unachievable as well. The market for writers is just so completely saturated and I constantly doubt whether or not anybody would want to actually read anything that I write. I want to have the time to focus on some decent writing, some lengthy writing, like my last post, which was 16,000 words – I need decent chunks of time to be able to do so, but because I have so much self doubt, I feel inadequate and not talented enough and completely alone and unsupported which doesn’t help. I want to write a novel. I have a few idea on what I’d write about, but nothing solid; no definitive ideas. I also want to write a sitcom… Something comedic along the lines of like a Will & Grace or a 2 Broke Girls style show – lots of one liners and sarcasm and great characters. But again, I doubt whether or not I could actually achieve anything like that.
I guess I’m not going to achieve anything if I just sit around and fucking dream… I need to put pen to paper, well, fingers to keyboard, and make shit happen!!
