Make a living off teaching guitar..

I couldn't think of a better way to spend my life. Making money off of teaching something you love.. not to bad. smile.gif.

And come out with a few albums down the way. So excited!

If I could be in a Progressive-Thrash-Power-Death-Black-Symphonic-Folk-Viking Metal band that would be sweet smile.gif


That would be an intense band!

I love making my own music, so I'd like to get money with my own compositions... and maybe writing music for some other people.

I personally don't plan on getting nor do I want a job in anything to do with music, even though I love music.

Absolutely no question in my mind what I want to be, and what I WILL be, is a professional language translator for big corporations. I am 16 and have decent Spanish and it is improving rapidly and have already begun on Mandarin Chinese, so hopefully I am on my way! This type of person that speaks multiple languages is something that is extremely rare in the U.S., so hopefully I can benefit from this easy money-making-machine. Languages are extremely easy, extremely fun, rack in an assload of cash, and would allow me to travel and live all over the world.

I am absolutely obsessed with foreign cultures and people, unlike my family who enjoys living in a tiny little bubble, ticking off days on the calender. I've got one world, and one life, and I surely plan on seeing and experiencing every single bit of it.

I got hired into Publix near where I live (which only hires the best of the best) only because my Spanish was DECENT!!Seriously, society is so easy to triumph in, if you know where the money lies, which is in foreign languages.

I put down about 3 hours a night dedicated to studying either Spanish or Chinese, learn in the car everywhere I go, I read Spanish books, watch Spanish television, converse with my dad's workers (Spanish people, not going to say anything else), go to Mexican places all the time, I don't know why I just love it so much. Learning languages is largely a personal enjoyment for me in general, but I don't have personal favorites like the kids at my school that learn random stuff like Finnish, Japanese, Polish, etc, etc,. Main reason I decided Spanish and Chinese is because of the big bucks. Maybe in about a year and a half or so I will pick up learning a 4th language, most likely Arabic at this point, once again I just want big bucks. And once I get really really good with Spanish I can probably blow out the rest of the Romance languages in a relatively short amount of time. My dream job idol (Graham Fuller) speaks 13 languages fluently! Maybe one day, I can reach this status.

And I want my future wife to be from another country, or at least from the North Eastern U.S., I can't stand the way Southern women look, women from almost anywhere else look so much more real to me, I don't know how to describe it. I just got back from New York City like 6 days ago and was astounded at how much more beautiful the women were there than they are here.

Sorry for the huge wall of text, I just am obsessed and have to share.

One more thing! I love traditional foreign music as well, so maybe after traveling and living all over the world for many many years and learning all kind of music styles, I can come back and write some Progressive Metal-Flamenco-Middle Eastern-Mexicana-Oriental-Insanely awesome music.

I would like to be the movie trailer guy, the one the comedian is imitating in the clip. Don LaFaontaine. I have always wanted that job.
