"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined." -Henry David Thoreau


Where do you see yourself five years from now?

The Charleston, set to some new music. :)

I swear this was on my original xjournal post, but it apparently only took the quote. Wth.

He's faboo.

And I'm hanging in here. I've been pretty sick, so that's kinda pissing me off, but I'm trying to stay positive.

Good to see you. It's been a long time! How are you? *hugs* What's new?

And great icon. =)

This year, I have met two wonderful, awesome persons, with whom I finally am pursuing so many of those dreams. :)

Thoreau was (and is) a pretty cool guy, by the way.

And the Charleston is a pretty awesome dance—especially in It's a Wonderful Life.

*hugs* I'm sooo glad things are going well for you.

I just realized the youtube I posted originally didn't take.. it's the charleston set to some different music. Much awesomeness and is updated now if you want to take a peek, being that you're a fan. ;)

I am currently pursuing my dreams. And I can't do the Charleston, my school doesn't allow dancing. (No joke.)

AWESOME!!!!!!!!!

That is so freaking cool!!!

I wish I was a better dancer. I would love to be able to do those. That'd be sooo neat.

I posted a fun Charleston video now that didn't take in my original post. It's up now though. :)

I love Thoreau, but that's one I'd not heard/read. I think "Go confidently in the direction of your dreams" is now my motto for life now; 'direction' sounds so much more freeing than 'path' or any of those other things people usually tell you to follow. Reminds of Captain Kirk's, "Out there...thattaway." :)

Of course, I've also listened to the PotC: At World's End soundtrack about 5 times today at work, so I'm very much in the mood to go sail the seven seas, or conquer something. :)

It's a great motto for life isn't it? I really love it.

And aww! POTC will do that. The soundtracks are fab, aren't they? :)

Where will the seven seas carry you, do you think? :)

in five years i will be fresh out of college. i'll hopefully be going into the peace corps or some other organization like it. i really want to do aid work in africa or south america for several years, then i'll probably go to graduate school.

I love Daft Punk, and that song works surprisingly well with the Charleston.

5 years from now dream wise I'd be doing stand-up on the Tonight Show.

5 years from now realistically I'll be paying off consumer debt and almost ready to buy a house (assuming I can keep saving at current levels).

Is the name of the song Daft Punk or is it the group? I want to download the song so I want to know what to look for, can you help me? :)

And I lurve it!!!

I like the Tonight Show track, personally. :)

HMM...honestly, I think I'll get a record deal when I'm 22 (I'm 21 now). I have no clue why, but even if I don't get it by next year, I hope/expect to be a singer by then. If not, I HAVE no fucking idea. I just hope I'll be happier and smarter and not a virgin. HAHA

That Thoreau quote was the theme of my high school graduation so I can't quite hear it without thinking of high school all filled with hope and different dreams. That was five years ago. Funny how life changes (o:

I don't know what I'll do any more. I used to always know and now it's up in the air and I'll just have to learn to deal with it. Hate that feeling too (o:
