Yesterday at work someone asked me what my goal was in life.
I sat there blankly looking at them.
What do you mean, I asked.
Like what do I want to do with my life? What are my goals here?
I felt very flustered. 
I don't really know how to answer that question.

So I gave the standard answer:
I want to succeed in this company and work to better myself and my career.
Total bullshit.

So what is my real goal/dream?

Well to be honest…

To eat carbs and ice cream without gaining any weight.
To get to travel the world at the drop of a hat.
To be able to hang out with my friends that live across the country more.
For summer to last 6 months out of the year.

To dance, everyday.
To drink without getting hungover.
That my little sisters would stop getting so big.
And also me too. I'd like to not grow up anymore, thanks.
That people still read this blog a year from now.
No more hangnails. 
And while we're at it, that Michael will always do whatever I ask.
Like not wearing this hideous outfit.

But really, I want a job where it's not a job, but something that I am passionate about.
I know that's never going to happen until I own my own business.
I have been saying this since I can remember.
When I was a little kid I would make up “work out videos” and tell my mom I was going to out my own “work out business,” YMCA clearly got there first.
I started my own dance camp in college which went really well. But then I still had college, and that fizzled.
I have even tried to invent something. I swear to you I came up with those roll up flats. (Ask my friend Garrett. He'll tell ya.)

But I am 26, and I don't want to settle.
I want to do something great.
Something I'm passionate about.
Something that that may make all of the above dreams happen.
I want to write. And I want to be published.
It's a dream, but it can happen. Maybe.

And last but surely most importantly, my dream is for TOMORROWLAND to give me some damn tickets.
Hence, I am listening to Avicii's “Levels” live at Tomorrowland for Whitney's #Backthatazzup Friday

What's your dream?
