How old were you when you realized your dream wasn't going to come true?

When I was about 12, I was deadset on being a professional basketball player. I was a decent player, but was no where near good enough. Eventually, when I was around 14, I realized it wouldn't happen.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.

I had loads of stupid ones as a kid but most people probably do so i won't count them. I would really like to teach guitar and make music with people, not really famous music just something good.

hmmm...I still have dreams and I hope they will come true.
But for now...my biggest dreams are to play a gig(will happen in June) and the dream that I guess all guys had...to be with the girl I love...that's all
but...dreams must be. When I have no dreams then I'm just not myself anymore
1. You're surfing the internet.
2. You're browsing through the UG forums.
3. You're reading now.
5. You didn't notice that there was no #4.
6. You just checked it.
7. Now you're having a lil smile.

Never realized it yet.
Because mine IS going to come true.

My dream is enjoy life and take a career as a Forensic Scientist (a Crime Scene Technician [CSI stupid]) and play in a band for fun and see where that goes.

My dream is quite reasonable.

I have many dreams to be something or get something.
They all have not died. I'm just choosing on which to focus for a dream never dies!

I wanted to be a fire engine when I got older. No, not a fireman. A mother f***ing fire engine. I told my father his one day, and he smiled and gave a chuckle in that old, patronly sort of way. Then he told me 'You're f***ing stupid.' and beat me senseless.

You could have with intense practice, professional training sessions, basketball clinics, and joining teams.

Your dream was possible with you taking initiative to become a baller.

You don't want to go through the journey, and the grind.
No, you nigga wanted to be a baller OVERNIGHT.

fatass gargantuan full page sized e-cookie if you get the reference


If you make a more realistic dream, it's possible.
The dream to become a rockstar is possible, you just really NEED TO WANT IT SO BAD that you'll do WHATEVER it takes to get there.
That's what a real dream is.

Actually, a real dream is your sub-conscious creating mental images while you sleep and are deep into REM.

Who has dreams?



That's like asking "Who eats these days?"

Everyone has dreams, literally and figuratively.

Your act of comedy has failed you and for that, I would like to post a fail pic.
But i'm far too lazy, so post a fail pic in return

"I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal."

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.

I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

I have a dream today!

I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of "interposition" and "nullification" -- one day right there in Alabama little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.

I have a dream today!

I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, and every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight; "and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together."

This is our hope, and this is the faith that I go back to the South with."

I wanted to become a Doctor (Typical asian kid) mainly because it made a crapload of money and my parents wanted me to be one. When I was 16, I realized that that wasn't what I wanted to do anymore. I wanted to pursue culinary arts and so I dropped my Academy (renown as one of the best in the United States) and now i have an internship at a restaurant and i plan on attending the CIA (Culinary institute of america).

I was about 7 or 8 when that one just keeled over and died.

Never. I'm still living under the false pretence that I'm a rockstar who fights crime in his spare time.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

I wanted to be a dance teacher for a while.

I have no idea why, because I never took dance.

I think I forgot about that rather than realise it wouldn't come true.

My dreams of being a Pro Golfer ended when i realized that EVERYBODY is better than me

I'll settle down become a 10th grade Social Studies teacher. I'll be a programmer and musician in my spare time. I will buy a house in central Pennsylvania, get a nice Beagle, find a nice wife, and have 2 kids.

There.
