    I had a dream of moving to a new apartment and not commuting on the Tokyo subways for three hours a day. This week, my dream came true. I have not ridden a single train all week.

    Sometimes our dreams are rather modest and attainable.



    very happy for you. makes a huge difference in life

    Thanks, Globe. It's hard to exaggerate what a huge difference it really makes.

    Good for you! It's the simple joys in life that make us happiest.

    No my girl and I have quite different dreams. I love the Bay Area and want to pretty much stay here for a good portion of my life. If I move elsewhere it would be Chicago/New York for Graphic Design opportunities or somewhere in Europe like France for the experience. However, it would really only be a few years tops. My girlfriend doesn't like the Bay Area and claims she's from Florida even though she's lived here the longest and has lived in more Bay Area cities than anyone else I know. She says she would be willing to stay if the right reasons came along (meaning marriage) but I wouldn't want her to be miserable her whole life. She has plans of working for NASA in Florida but she doesn't seem very inspired or motivated at the time.

    Many have shared your problem, as they make their Thomas Pink kites in the beer garden while wearing Dunhill. Sometimes, we must live a dream that others simply cannot abide.

    She has plans of working for NASA in Florida but she doesn't seem very inspired or motivated at the time.

    There's always a couple of universities around there that do some work for NASA (UC Berkeley, Stanford)- worst case would be the JPL in Pasadena (that's what? an hour by plane...). Otherwise NASA is underfunded anyway. If you do move to Europe for some time lots of the high-tech for the satellites comes from Germany (when it's not form the JPL). So, if you end up in Munich or Berlin she might be able to work on these projects at the technical universites there. Just a thought though...

    I wouldn't sweat it. By the time you pass immigration, John McCain will be in his second term.

    I know how you are feeling with your girl..mine is happy just working at her job and talking about a family but she doesn't seem so inspired about that. Its hard when you spend you time on your dreams but the person you love doesn't really have there own dream..maybe that's why she's not supporting my choice because she's felt jealous. I try to include her in all the things I like but the more I do that she's going to the other way.

    I am sorry about your girlfriend..and I must say this girl could be crazy to want to leave California(!!)..maybe she wants to work for Nasa to go back to Mars [​IMG]
