Hi guys! I'm sure some of your are very intrigued by the title of this post, LOL! I'm sure all of you firmly believed something when you were little, only to end up being extremely disappointed. This process of getting some of your perfect dreams crushed and discover the reality is a part of being more mature.
Here are some of my dreams, please feel free to make a list for yourself too!
1. Before I was 6, I've always dreamt to be able to bounce on clouds, just like trampoline. They look so soft and fluffy...just like marshmallows. I was completely crushed when I found out by going on a plane for a family trip, that clouds are just water droplets that are suspended in the air. They are just like fog!!
2. I've always wanted to make this pill that can make you live forever, and I will sell the first pill to Bill Gates for gazillion dollars. That dream was brutally murdered by my 4th grade teacher. I can still remember exactly what she said: "Tao, grow up. This is not a realistic goal! It goes against the human nature." While thinking back on it, it is true. Pills like that will completely destroy the balance in nature! However, back then I was completely stunned. I was heart broken for at least 2 weeks.
3. I've also wanted to be a forensic pathologist. I've always like shows like CSI: Miami, House, etc. even the Chinese ones! I didn't want to be detectives nor lawyers, I wanted to be the hot medical examiner that cuts people open to look for different weird causes of death. That dream was destroyed when I got my first D ever in 1st 9 week grading period in AP Biology in highschool. Of course, other than forensic pathologist, this fact killed off all so called "Asian" majors for me, such as all Pre-Med majors and any science majors.
4. Like every other adolescent girl, I dreamt of being discovered by a modeling scout randomly on the street (or in the mall). Of course, this dream self destructed after knowing that I will never be 5'10" and 100lbs. Still, I wonder frequently what it will feel like to be rich, famous, and gorgeous (Yes, Adrina Lima and Miranda Kerr, I'm talking to you).
How about you guys? What were some of your dreams that didn't come true? I would LOVE to hear some of the stories!
Have a great day everyone!
