My ambitions are to work at McDonalds for minimum wage so I can support a family of 4+.

Getting into cardiology or general surgery would be neat as well, but those don't offer discounts on big macs.

Graditate.

Also, survive the next 5 years on Ocrevus without getting some nasty infection and dying.

Fun times.
I am an accountant working full-time (and some). I'm not here as often as I would like to be. Send a message if you need me. There are a few people in the community who can get in contact with me urgently if you need - don't be afraid to ask. I just don't check here as frequently as I used to. Sorry!

Start a part-time business running a doughnut trailer, finish engine (EFI) tuning training, and save up enough money to start my own mechanic/tuning/bodyshop business. :)

1. Make a low-poly WWII flight sim with semi-realistic physics and an alternate timeline.
2. Survive what my fellow Filipino weird prediction people think is an impending zombie apocalypse which would hopefully not arrive.
3. Make different RC aircraft and sell them to people.
4. Be a Cessna Skyhawk pleb.
5. Get a better PC so I could play War Thunder and fricking rage because some hackerman pwned me.

A Me 262 pilot, how many times his plane's engines caught on fire.

Hoping to pass my PPL Knowledge test on Feb. 1, then move through the rest of the licensing process.
Eventually I want to own a fabric-covered biplane, ideally with a radial. My neighbor's Stearman really got me hooked on the concept.

I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for my signature, I can tell you I don't have one. But what I do have are a very particular lack of skills, skills I have imagined having over a very long career. Skills that make me are completely useless in any situation. If you stop reading now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't stop reading, I will look for you, I will probably not find you, and I will kill your refrigerator.

Build Drug Empire, locate Soji. Get my henchmen to throw millions at his face until he hands over the source code. Get my henchmen to find some good code monkeys. Make them add every feature I've ever wanted to this game.

After that, I think I'll overdose and die.

I just fulfilled one of my ambition, upgraded to a new[rebuilt]computer, Dell optiplex running Windows 10. May not seem much but it runs rings around my old xp. Even on my most heavily populated sceneries with elevation grids and ground objects It is running in the mid 20s FPS. And runs smooth as glass in 2015 D3D. Primary 54" screen for the game and a 32" monitor to run Navplanner like a poor mans GPS. I use my old xp with the 32" monitor to run all the older utilities that don't work in Windows 10. But the Navplanner and scenery editor do run well in 10. I will be posting screenshot, otherwise it didn't happen, right ;)

Ooh… just discovered this thread. This list changes every few months and of course none of it is guaranteed, so I’ll say that I like Gunny’s response, “life one day at a time”. However, if I could have it my way, it would look something like this.
Graduate high school, go to college for aeronautical engineering or similar, commission into the Air National Guard or Reserve out of ROTC, and fly HH-60 Pave Hawks or A-10s. If I can afford it, I’ll go to the National Test Pilot School and get trained there. Regardless of of that happens, I’ll definitely be looking for a job as a test pilot. Not sure where- it could be at a large company like Boeing or Scaled Composites, or a smaller one like Wasabi Flight Test. If I wind up going to New York instead of one of the West Coast CSAR squadrons, I’ll start my own firm. If the test pilot thing doesn’t work out, I’ll have the option to go full-time in the Guard or take an airline job. I’ve got a lot of thing I want to do in life, and I can’t do ‘em all. So for now, it’ll be Gunny’s answer. Live life to the fullest. One day at a time.
Hover lover.
