same desu. Parents took me to Medieval times and got my brother and I a wooden sword each. Never stopped liking them. Now I have a Rawlings synthetic Bastard Sword and I tried making a riveted maille hauberk, but my pierce broke so I'm just completing it with butted mail. Also saving up for an Albion sword, or at least fucking Cold Steel Italian Longsword.

i always wanted to be a girl and i had this idea in my head that i would invent a sort of time machine as an adult that i could use to somehow turn myself into a woman and then go back in time so i can relive my life as a girl. time machines dont exist yet. i dont have the brains nor the dedication to try my hand at creating one. you still cannot turn yourself into a real woman. my dream will never come true. i am going to die without being able to even chase my dream.

I wanted to be a writer and write all these stories I make up in my head my whole life to escape reality. Though alas I suck at writing. So like most my life my stories are just for me and a few select people. Who try to encourage me to write, but I suck at it.

1. Pilot - eye sight sucked, nope not happening.

2. Scientist - cant do 7th grade math, sorry user, not happening

3. Historian - PhD historians wind up on food stamps unless they are connected and get tenure to teach history. All becoming a historian is is an over glorified teacher. pass

those were my dream careers. I didnt have a real interest in anything else, and sucked at pretty much everything else i did, got stuck working in a phone room. curse my life every day

I wanted to be an astronaut. Then I watched the movie Apollo 13 in class in 5th grade and got scared. After that I didn't know what I wanted to be until 9th grade when I thought I wanted to study literature. These days I dream of being a famous chemist, movie director or musician.

Unironic race car driver. I didn't realize how much I really wanted it until I visited home last Christmas. I found literally hundreds of toy cars, hundreds of shitty drawings of cars, diagrams, gokart designs. How I spent so much time mastering any form of transportation I could get my hands on. Just obsessed. My parents wouldn't never even let me watch racing out of fear I would see someone die.

I knew nostalgia pretty early. Like 5. I didn't have the word for it, but I already felt it really strongly for places and times I had lost, and I was perplexed that I could feel it for places on TV or in my head that would never exist.
I was aware of how many memories I had that I cherished from really early that were going dull, and I was scared not at the loss of the memories themselves but of my own feelings about them. I loved feeling excited about things and anticipating them, and it scared me that that feeling might go dull, too.
I had already thought about killing myself pretty early, too. Didn't have the word for that yet, learned it at 7. Already knew what cringe, shame, grief, and longing were. No words for those either.
I didn't know what live was. I think I loved things and experiences and things in the abstract, but not people and living things. I had friends I had strong feelings towards, and who made me feel tingly and excited when I thought of seeing them at recess or after school. But that was all visceral, and I think I loved getting high on that feeling more than I loved my friends. It made me want to be with them, and romanticize about showing them things and going places with them, and to laugh and play and have fun with them, but it didn't make me feel anything like what I know now.
It could also be that maybe that was love and I just haven't felt it in decades. That would make kid me really sad, but what does he know?

Always wanted to do something cool like be in the military. But unfortunately I kinda failed at it and found I didn't like doing it anyways. Now I'm just NEETing it up and hoping I die of a heart attack. Maybe if I die there will be something on the other side that can give me an exciting or fulfilling life. Or maybe I'll just find a pit of fire for doing absolutely nothing with my life. Necer will know until it happens.

Not really, everyone's pretty zen about it. The one I feel I really let down though is My Granfather.

He never says anything but I think he was really looking forward to seeing me in their god-tier dress blues. Ah well, shit happens.

John Sullivan

I wanted to know everything. The Truth, and how to prevent Lies from hurting me or others.
I wanted to learn what I could do to help people I cared about.
I wanted to be the best at something.

When I hit middle school, I started feeling bitter towards my peers.
When all my friends were in different classes, i had to make new friends.
All my new friends Moved. Away. No Means to stay in contact. All of them. The sheer bad luck I had was unfair.
My old friends developed differently, were no longer the friends we once were.
I soon realized if I couldn't love anyone, what good would knowing everything would be.
Also, I soon discovered Truth isn't always ideal, yet Lies mostly plague everything.
Education was changing, what they teach, or what they changed being taught didn't make sense, the obvious biases forming also concerned me. Treatment of others in such separate degrees, that continue to haunt to this very day.
If lies are often in everything, why should I know it, if truth isn't valued?
Why should I bother, if the truth also changes by perspective?
Why should I care what other's know or don't know, If my existence isn't of any consequence to them?
Why should I be the best at something, when usually involves "inconveniencing" a previous best, or puts you in line of resenting competition?
Why should I help, when I will never help everyone equally?

I was innocent, I had done nothing wrong, yet the world is always making up new lies, creating people who are more selfish and full of pride.
Then shaming when you do the right thing when you did what you thought was right when they see it as wrong?
I don't fit. I live without purpose, but I am better now than living in the world of lies.
