one question at a time

how ambitious are you about life?

(are you satisfied with the usual things - a good-paying job, a family, a nice house - or are you forever restless? do you aspire to be a millionaire, or to conquer a mountain, or to be the head of your organization, or to be world-famous?)

ps:
sorry for the lack of updates, i have been busy with work and life. swimming, running, reading, meeting people, learning....everyday! and of course, washing dishes in the store. haha!

it scares me when i am contented with life, i feel i am prepared to--to put it crudely--die any moment: because there is nothing else i want in life anymore.

so i guess it is in my nature to be restless and ambitious?

i hate washing dishes, because i have mild ocd/paranoia regarding how much water is needed to rinse out the detergent, haha. or is that just an excuse xD

hmm i'm the opposite...i don't dream big. to me, what's more important is rather enjoying doing what you're doing everyday, but well of course being at least able to make ends meet. (this society is realistic after all)

my biggest dream? opening a cafe along the beach XD (HAHA!)

I'm not an ambitious person. I be just contented living a simple life with the one i love. But often simplicity is the most difficullt thing to achieve. I want to live by the sea., hearing the waves in my sleep, waking up to a beautiful sunrise everyday. :)

Nice to hear that you are being kept busy, learning everyday!!

I would like to be like Michael Jackson, with so much wealth in hands. But he don't seem to be happy with his life.

I would like to a pauper too, so that I will appreciate even the bread crumbs thrown at me from people that walk by.

My ambition, I have so many I want to do everything at the same time!

P/S: I would like to be a singer.

I am darn ambituous. I want to meet people, have fun, and get the most out of life. That just doesn't mean partying but improving myself.

It's not like I want to have big bucks but I am always restless. I need to constantly achieve something (big or small) to keep myself going. Maybe it's because I've always been in the wrong field. Maybe the recent (but long overdue) drastic change in work field will satisfy me.

dream, and live one day at a time. planning can be too regimented for me.

i used to think that i can be laidback and be contented with what i have- what i learn at work everyday is part of my perpetual learning about life, people, departures, relationships. enriching i would say and possibly close to impossible to find another such environment where i can be exposed to the above.

yet my mind wanders and recently what's keeping my mind occupied is having something that truly belongs to me. a life/career that clearly defines who i am and spells me, because for all the work/learning i get now, i guess nothing beats having a name to myself. maybe im realistic like that.

thanks for having these question posts.

name in lights? nope not at all close. although i know thats what people look at but being up there just taking in everything. feeling and listening to what my mask is trying to convey to others. on that sacred area in new york. when thats over the ocean and someone sitting too close to me soaking the silence, the beauty.

-i want too much. sometimes i wonder if life on the other side of this universe could bring me all that..

I only wish to be at peace, and to be compassionate, generous and self-controlled.

I want to be the next female starchitect after zaha hadid. A much lovelier/lovable one too.
In my free time I will pen lyrics to folky tunes. and hang out with my family.
I am unambitious about my social life. I'm happy to hang arnd the same group of friends forever.
