Post the (Somewhat reasonable) Dreams you always had but are literally Impossible.

I always wanted to be a model, since i was a kid but i never grew past 5'1 and ended up being allergic to cosmetics.

Still makes me lowkey suicidal when i think of it.

No. 58252

I wanted to model too. My mom did it when she was around my age, but my skin isn't clear enough yet. I'll probably attempt it when my face gets better but by then I might be too old.

Luckily I was never interested in runway modeling because I'm only 5'4

I've always wanted to be an author and it was pretty realistic back when I was a kid and I had wild story ideas and much better language skills than my peers. But then I stopped writing for years in order to get through school/college and my writing skills are so poor due to being out of practise….can't see myself ever writing an entire novel now.

I wished I had written a novella as a kid when I had lots of time to spare and I was still really creative. I remember seeing a girl the same age as me on tv when I was around 11 who published a book and I was insanely jealous lol.

No. 58270

ooh I wanted to act. I still do tbh. I'm pretty young (not underage, but close) but I'm weird looking and I don't even know what kind of roles I'd get as I want to act for a camera and not on stage. I spend a lot of time reenacting scenes from things or writing my own and acting them out so it's always been a fantasy of mine. Maybe I could look into screenwriting, idk.

I wanted to live by myself.
First I lived with my overbearing divorcee parents, then they wouldn't let me move out until I got a boyfriend because they were scared I wouldn't be able to take care of myself, I've lived with that boyfriend for 4 years now because I don't have enough money to move out. Next year I'll be studying abroad for a year but I'm staying with a family with little kids.
I'm in my mid twenties, I'll never get to live alone.

No. 58313

I wanted to be a rich, but reclusive author. I loved the idea of having a lot of money for my writing but didn't want to be bothered with fame. I still have a lot of ideas and stories in my head but the path life has taken me has made it hard to be able to sit and write since my attention is constantly needed elsewhere.

No. 58314

I've also wanted to be a novelist forever. I suppose I still could become a published author someday, but I wanted to start off very young for the novelty effect (e.g. Eragon author) and now I'm 25 so it's not really impressive at all to have a book or two under your belt. Ah well.

If it's any comfort, 'talent' can only get you so far. I live in a block of flats under a professional opera singer, and trust me when I say she sounds horrible 99% of the time when she's rehearsing. But that's because she's, y'know, rehearsing - not performing on stage. I used to sing in a church choir (both as an adult and as a child) and by the time we were ready to perform we'd get so sick of all the songs we never wanted anything to do with them ever again.

Even if you have a beautiful voice you're going to sound like shit without vocal training, so all might not be lost. Go to a music school and ask to try out for solo singing.

Eventually, one of us confesses and we get married and get 2 dogs and 3 rats and a nice loft apartment with a backyard and my own herb garden and she goes off and does her passions while I spend my time on copy writing jobs and writing my screenplay on the side.

Literally impossible: I always wished like I was born mixed. All the previous generations of my family were mixed to some extent and ended up with gorgeous features but basically by the time my mom was born she was mostly black with some small amounts of native american and white but she at least LOOKED mixed race and had ""good hair"". Then she got knocked up by a guy who literally looks like a silverback gorilla and I inherited most of his family's appearance. I hate it so much.

Could have happened but I squandered my chance and now it's impossible: I've always wanted to live in Germany. Europe in general has interested me but I got super into the German language and fell in love with what I learned about the culture and saw of the country. But I got a fairly worthless degree at the urging of my family, not a lot of job experience, and barely any money saved up. I'm pretty sure I'll kill myself before I ever even get a chance to visit.

when i was a kid i wrote in my diary "i wish i was so pretty that all the boys would fall in love with me"

i actually got my wish because i started hanging out with geeks (thanks to going to an all girl school and having no friends that play vidya) and most of those dudes (even the NEETS who were much older than me) had crushes on me because i was the only person there who didnt have a y chromosome. they were all pretty gross and socially awkward so i wasn't too interested! theres at least three dudes from that group who are still pining after me like i was the ~one that got away~

but too bad i meant that i wanted cute boys to like me, that never really happened, only crazy dudes. my boyfriend's the only cute, not crazy, not socially awkward guy to have ever liked me.

i wanted to be a singer when i was younger. unfortunately i'm fucking awful at singing. i have a soft apparently attractive voice and several people have told me that they bet i'd be great at singing if i tried. i've tried. you don't want to hear me try.

It's like reading a book in a foreign script like Urdu or something and trying to write an literary analysis about it.

I always wanted to open a small and personal coffee shop in a rustic town, vintage style (think persona 5 leblanc) and have it decorated with all-cat style, so pastries would be cute kitten forms, the cups would be cute cat forms, etc. With a nice fireplace, delicious home-made pastries and an incredible coffee smell. Basically a comfy second-home style.
Realistically i'm too poor to own a buisness and it wouldn't last that much because small business get crushed pretty fast, so i'm salty that it most likely won't happen. But i'm still saving up for it so in the future, i'll hopefully be the kind old lady who owns a cute cat coffee shop in a small mountain village, lmao.
This dream would be made even 1000x better if it was owned by me and my cute supportive boyfriend/husband, who helps me at everything and is kind and helpful and we basically live in a ghibli movie irl, but alas, real life.

Also, I always wished i could become a movie/tv actress, but realistically i'm fucking awkward in front of cameras and i cannot afford to train for it.

I want to be a video game streamer. I feel so embarrassed to even post this anonymously. It's the dumbest thing. I don't have the charisma or looks for it. I don't even know why I have such a random desire. It just seems like fun I guess. Plenty strangers to talk to. It's a career you can have a lot of individualism in and control over.

when i was a little kid, i used to fantasize about dating a girl as a boy. i hoped some cute feminine girl would notice me when i hit high school and had this whole self-deprecating-but-earnest artsy loner shtick, but all that happened was some straight girls teased me in front boys that they wanted to impress.

i have a boyfriend now, and i really do love him. but at the same time, it'd be really neat to have a relationship with a girl. ideally to just bone a ton of messy art chicks, but it'd be cute to be some girl's doofy butch gf. bf is monogamous as hell, and he's not interested in threesomes. i'd never go behind his back or anything, but man. i can't read cute yuri stories or classicl lez fiction without feeling this awkward longing.

(to be fair, even if i didn't have a bf, i probably wouldn't be getting laid anyway. i've never had a close female friendship past elementary school on account of being awkward/not having anything to talk about w girls. i dress like an average boring male nerd, have bad skin, and lift on the reg but don't build muscle. not at all "daddy" material U~U )

No. 59190


Idk. I have mostly guy friends and I made them because I was into anime and videogames before it was cool (inb4 hipster, no… I was literally that weird nerdy chick no one really liked till 11th grade)

My female friends from elementary school grew apart from me during that period, but I had stuff in common with the nerdy guys and they could tell I wasn't just faking it for attention.

Someone said it's easier to impress guys and make them like you by being awkward, while girls need a different set of social skills and I think that's true.

But it's so much easier to talk about the deep stuff with girls. Guys only care about making stupid jokes.

No. 59196

I agree, women are always stereotyped as being super emotional but if I get too deep with my guy friends they can't handle it lol, I mentioned in passing that I used to self-harm because it was relevant to a conversation I was having with my friends and one of them just started fucking crying and I had to lighten the mood by making jokes about it. I think that's why I get along with guys better actually, I don't really like getting deep too often.

No. 59199

>Guys only care about making stupid jokes.
Holy fuck this.

I did my best to make conversation with some german guy and one day, he out of the blue mentioned that he enjoyed talking to me because it's different than when he's hanging out with this group of guy friends. Said it was more "serious" when we talked and that his friends just laugh and crack jokes all the time. I thought he didn't like his friends or something but later realized what it meant.

Not to mention whenever I'm talking to guys online they're really bad at opening up. They're always spouting overdone memes and making lame jokes and it's totally boring.

No. 59202

haha, thanks. it would make sense to talk to girls the same way i talk to boys, but as >>59190 said, guys tend to find awkwardness charming, whereas girls find it off-putting. it might help to qualify that i don't have that many friends to begin with. i tend to befriend a very specific kind of nerdy/artsy guy with mother issues, and then spend most of the time cracking jokes as per >>59196, and then part of the time talking through his emotional issues (matilda bernstein sycamore's relationship model: "First you reveal everything, and then when you can't think of anything else to reveal you go deeper.") this sort of guy is attracted to awkwardness because it makes a girl seem more obtainable (see https://theblog.okcupid.com/the-mathematics-of-beauty-51bd25ae9a75 ). i've had all but one friend admit to me that they mainly talk to me because they're tryna fuqq and hope that i'll eventually break down and throw them a bone. it sort of sucks to have your friends want something from you that you're not able to fulfill, but it is probably better than having no friends?

No. 59212

so many things, but most of them to do with appearance.

I grew up non-white in a mostly white city and so I was ugly by default (I was still actually ugly, though). guys used to ask me out or call me hot as a joke. didn't really have a lot of friends either in childhood or adolescence so I am now basically incapable of enjoying interaction with other people. probably doesn't help that I've been depressed since I was a kid either.

I was also slightly chubby through middle/high school and then a year ago I stopped eating on purpose to lose weight. I wouldn't call it an eating disorder though. I'm very underweight right now and I still think I look hideous.

idk I just feel like it would be nice to know what it's like to be a Pretty Girl (TM) for even one stage of my life. Now I'm going to grow old and ugly so I'll never know what that's like. other than that I'd like to just know what it's like to want and have a human connection because I'll never really experience that specific kind of fulfilment.

I wish I was a genius.
I don't need to be the next Stephen Hawking or anything, but I wish I was good at math, better than average, enough for a career. I love science and math and I'm always so fascinated by it, but I'm helpless with math myself. I watch and read about science and sometimes I even cry wen I hear the scientists talk about their area of knowledge. I want to be them. I can never have my dream career simply because I'm not smart enough. I don't care about being pretty or having a nice house, I just want to be really smart, mathematically and logically.

hey anon! hearing this kinda stuff makes my heart sympathetically twinge because i also felt the same way for a long while– that i loved science, but was too poor at math to succeed in it. but this blog post did a lot to encourage me to switch from a philosophy to chemistry major; https://fledglingphysicist.com/2013/12/12/if-susan-can-learn-physics-so-can-you/

if you're struggling with general mathematical skills, khanacademy is a great way to build those up; https://www.khanacademy.org/exercisedashboard

in addition, if you're interested in the general principles behind mathematics but feel hideous dread as soon as numbers appear (i speak from personal experience) take a look at http://www.people.vcu.edu/~rhammack/BookOfProof/

Are you me, anon? This how I feel about myself too and I have no idea how to change that. I wish I would have enough discipline and stick to my goal.

The idea behind Susan Fowler's post is good but she's known for embellishing her achievements and making herself look better/smarter than she really is. That's her whole thing, "oppressed girl in tech/STEM", and I'm not just talking about the Uber blogpost (which I believe was perfectly valid on her part, fwiw). She claims she's studied at unis where she only took a couple of online summer courses a few times and said she's worked at a million different 'startups' even though she's a freelancer doing gig work (or was, don't really know what she's up to now). I'd take any claims she makes with a grain of salt.

As for the concept of 'talent' for any particular skill (science, maths, whatever), Mindset by Carol Dweck is a great book even though it does get preachy and repetitive at times. Thanks for the other links btw!

No. 59319

i did not know that about fowler, but it makes sense. i've seen some people dismiss her physics blogpost on the basis that, having studied at so many prestigious universities and worked with so many startups, she must be a genius outlier and thus no one should hope to emulate her. so it makes more sense that she embellishes her record. and thank you for the book recommendation!

I want to be cute and stylish, but I'm ugly, too poor to go shopping as often I would like to, and I'm shit at doing makeup or even picking what would suit me because of my skin color (I look like I'm permanently sick). I just look like an ugly normie right now but that's a vast improvement compared to what I was like as a teenager.

I also wish I had some sort of internet presence somehow. Like for example, having a lot of followers on twitter and be able to talk to them about fun stuff whenever I want to. But I really don't want people I know irl to find me and to judge me so I'm avoiding getting in that situation.

The thing I'd say seem the most unrealistic to me is getting a small comfy flat just for myself, and stable job that doesn't require me to keep working even after my work day is over, and be able to play video games at home whenever I want, cook whatever I want, and just have more freedom in general. Right now I'm living with my family and we're so many that I can't even do simple things such as sleeping early if I'm tired because everyone else is doing their things and being noisy for example. And once I'll get out, I'll probably have to have roommates because the only places where their are jobs are expensive cities.

Same tbh, it seems really fun because you can have a lot of people to talk to about the video games you like. I'd never try to do it though, I like staying anonymous online.

Also wanted to model. I hit my height of 5'0 at age 11. Also when I got big tits. First boyfriend dated me just for having tits so my self image was warped for all of my adolescence. I'm trying to lose weight so I can at least be a fake instagram model if nothing else.

Aside from that, I also really wanted to be a lawyer. While this isn't an impossibility I got discouraged really early on because i'm shy and everytime i've ever tried to pursue it i got shot down by people for having such a soft voice so I gave up. My grades weren't good enough for a good enough college anyway. I legitimately have no fall back if art doesn't work out though and that petrifies me.

I want to be a cute dancing/singing idol (a la japanese idols) but i'm obviously one, not japanese, and two, 25. I'm debating going for it anyway when i reach my weight goal in a year and just seeing if i can gain any traction, even if it's just a tiny online following. I can sing and dance, and exercise daily so endurance isn't an issue, i just don't know how to compose music or sew so it's still a long shot..

and the finally just in general i'm one of the weebs that always felt kind of sad i wasn't born a kawaii japanese girl in japan. I like the culture (outside of anime even).

I'm less fetishizey about it now than i was in my teens but i still sometimes look in the mirror and kind of sigh about it.
Ah well. I believe in reincarnation so maybe if i wish on it enough i can be a kawaii idol in the next life.

Anonchan, making a popular podcast isn't that far off of a dream. If you or any of your friends are any good at voice acting/are willing to put in the work to GET good at it, and if you can write a good interesting story you could totally do it. If Nightvale can gain most of their success on one voice actor for the first videos, you can easily do it even if you have to do it alone.

I believe in you. Invest in a good mic, a pop filter, and learn to edit audio and you can do it!

I'm pretty similar to you anon: i was always very tall, so from kindergarten on, everybody told me i should model. Now i'd really like to but i completely ruined myself by gaining weight and not being able to lose it for years…

My dream is not being an idol, but since i love japanese (visual kei) bands i'd really love to be a guitarist. After i finished school i saved money to buy myself a guitar.
That was 3 years ago and i still haven't done anything, it's so frustrating.

Has anybody else the problem of wanting to be a little bit 'special', like not super famous, but still not just living a boring life with a normal job…?

No. 59881

You should go pick up your guitar right now and practice. Guitar is hard to learn but if it's something you want to do you should just sit down and do it. There's lots of decent beginner shit on youtube to get you started and sometimes live teachers aren't too expensive (Shop around and see).

I believe in you though, you can totally be a guitarist if you practice, and people LOVE female guitarists (Since usually girls pick up bass which people incorrectly think is "easier." )


but i have that same problem with wanting to be special. I mean on one hand, I have more natural talents than most people (I can sing and dance, which a lot of people can't do even with training) but i don't think there's room enough int he world for two Adeles (i.e. a whale with a good voice).

I also can't write music for shit. I was considering just singing covers of songs I like on youtube and see if anyone likes it but i don't know the legal issues regarding that.

All my hopes and wishes are going to an end. At this rate the last thing I will try is to become Instagram famous, but even there is so saturated and I'm not willing to take hoe like photos. So pretty much done with anything modeling related. When I was younger I had the chance to do glamour bikini lingerie modeling but was in an abusive relationship and the partner made me decide between him or modeling, but with a catch. He took me from my home country and if I chose modeling I would never be able to go live in the US to start my modeling gigs. He would send me back home.

So yeah. Sorry this thread and for venting

I always dreamed of becoming a singer/pop star, but I wasn't even sure where to start or was given a sense of direction.

I still want to make music but the only instruments I have are my voice and GarageBand on my iPad (which I don't even use).

I kinda wanna start making videos and uploading on YouTube but with the whole situation going on, I just don't know.

I wanted to be an idol but that never worked out. Thank god too because even looking at my past videos and pictures makes me cringe

Recently I've wanted to make games. But that's never going to happen career-wise. No matter what I've tried I could never get my feet off the ground and spending months upon years making a game only to get like 200 downloads really kills my motivation. I'm still doing it as a hobby though but making the choice to stop dreaming about being a developer was hard. I knew it would never be a high paying job and it's extremely stressful. But making games is the only thing in my life that I've actually liked doing and could see through until the end.

Now I'm pouring my time and efforts into just trying to have a sustainable life. Doing a normal job while saving up to open my own shop in my 30s.

I have a really thin boy like body, weighing around 90lbs, but a fat ass face. If you just saw my face you would think I was overweight, I hate it. All my cousins are so pretty:(

Another thing I wanted was to be internet famous, back in the Myspace days I had a small presence but it died along with it. It just felt nice having people to talk to who had similar interests as you.

i'm a dancer, but i have a crippling fear of expressing myself in front of people. im also one of those fat pro-ana bloggers who gains and looses weight every month and am frequently sick from chronic illnesses that make me more anxious. i didn't have support while growing up so i dance two-four hours everyday in my room and in my garage, i do tons of conditioning, lift weights, go running, and even though im fat im really ripped underneath it and can do flips and handstands and shit. ive been doing this routine for years and i know i look good but anxiety made me never want to do it in public. the few times ive danced around people years ago fueled me to become a lot better at it in private but my ocd makes me obsessed with the criticism things people said to me when i was 10 and doing jpop covers very poorly in psuedo fairy-kei and cosplays. i know those things arent true anymore, i made them not true, but i cant bring myself to dance again and im too old to be cute doing it anymore, plus fat and filled with so much damn self hate. idk, idol dreams and dancer dreams dead.

I wanted to be a cute asian girl. The type that's shy, small and has long straight black hair. Basically a shoujo protagonist. I feel like asian girls are neutral when it comes to the preference of guys. Like, they probably won't get rejected because they're so cute. However, I'm the complete opposite and a bit to outspoken. Like the kind of girl guys like to hit(?). I'm lowkey an asiaboo.

Also, how does one overcome this. I have slight body dysmorphia so the only way I know I'm obese and ugly is through photos. It makes me really anxious and has greatly affected my posture. I'm like quasimodo.

but what do you specifically find attractive about asian girls other than shortness?
> their skin? improve ur skin regimen and diet (asian diets r pretty good w/ all the vegetables they incorporate)

> their silky straight dark hair?

I've always wanted to be a femme fatale type but it really doesn't translate well in real life…I'm also way too much of a cry baby and have absolutely zero confidence

No. 60016

imo the "femme fatale look" is really just that, a look. and it's not about the aesthetic that's glamorous, but who it's on. for example, kaya sco can work effy as a character but she can also work "proper 18th century handmaiden". "femme fatale" is like clothing she wears.
on the other hand in real life, more often than not, it looks like the clothes is wearing the person. guys will see the girl dressed like effy and think "she looks like a hoe/druggie" without regard to her personality. girls will look at the girl with corsets, red lipstick etc and think "mis matching/trying too hard". post pics on Instagram of yourself with mascara running? edgy 13 year old.

also i've met some innocent looking "good girls" who turned out to be huge man eaters/femme fatales so i guess character doesn't often reflect physical appearances

Being outgoing, confident, bubbly and being tomboy-ish but still feminine.

I tried a few times but eh… I have depression, anxiety and shitty social skills. I end up being so so so tired after hanging out with people and I never know what to say. I'm just not the type to somehow join in a conversation.
And acting confident often ends up with me -looking- like a bitch.
I can pull off a tomboyish style but I have the body of a boy - no boobs at all, no waist and broad shoulders. I was never "socialized to be female" and my gestures etc are kind of…male-ish. I just really hate it and am not sure how to change that. I'd be really embarrassed if I went full femme overnight, it's not what people are used to and I'd be getting really weird looks.

I'm already a European polyglot but kind of average looking and from the part of Europe nobody knows or cares about. Whenever I tell people I'm from Europe they get really excited but when they find out I'm not from a "Good" country I can just see the disappointment in their eyes as they shrink away and gradually stop talking to me.

I wish I was from literally any other European country people knew about. At this point I can't even feel proud about mine because whenever I say something nice about it people look at me in disbelief because they've been conditioned to believe we're all savages living in mud huts and beating each other with wooden clubs or something. Every time I open my mouth people act surprised that my English is as good as it is, even though they'd never do that to, say, a Swede. When they ask for my passport at airports I get treated so much better when I show them my Swiss one instead of the one I used to have.

At this point even Israel sounds better, at least people treat them like humans of normal intelligence, even if they do get hate.

A- are you me anon? I'm American, but lived abroad in a few countries. People often excitedly assume I'm from Russia or Germany. When I correct them that I'm from America, every-single-time they are like "Oh…". Literally, I've had people just walk away from me in disgust.

Also, I've had people tell me they think we are savages here who run around with guns killing people, are uneducated, and morbidly obese, driving hummer and SUVs everywhere…I've had my people described as "uncivilized".

Yeah… But at least you can stay home and live somewhat comfortably. For me it's actually cheaper and more lucrative to study and get a job abroad, then retire back home.

The place is so nice and warm, full of history and pretty nature but it's also corrupt to fuck and decent jobs are only reserved for people in the upper echelons of society who studied PolSci with the boss's daughter at a private uni. It's not fair. The Catch 22 here is that the average salary is like €450 so most people can't afford to study abroad (or even rent their own flat back home) and are effectively doomed to being cleaners and maids working under the table and being bullied by their boss for the rest of their lives, so many young people just say 'fuck it' and stop working. We're also not in the EU (yet, possibly never) so getting a job or studying abroad is made all the harder.

Despite all that, it's a beautiful place and I hate to see it ruined by a band of uneducated highlander yobs (our equivalent of Appalachians, basically) running the show over there. And I really don't think we deserve the hate and disgust we get, most youngsters there are actually really smart and ambitious but negative attention sells better I guess so we'll always be dirty terrorist Orcs to most Europeans. At least you have Silicon Valley and other things to show for, we have… ??? Nikola Tesla I suppose???

when I was younger, I wanted to be a concept artist for video games. I hoard art books (some of my favorites are the assassin's creed art books, dark souls, and castlevania ones) and flip through them almost every day. I wanted to go to school for art, and I guess I should've. I enjoyed it and was fairly good, and I'm getting better now with practice. but the art industry, especially for concept artists, is very hard. I ended up majoring and minoring in something completely unrelated, but part of me really wished I hadn't.

another thing is that I really want one of those boy bodies from the 1920s lol. I'm short and stocky, and I really hate it, but that's how all the women in my family are.

I'd also like to be a model even just a instagram 'model'

I also have dreams of being a mom with a little house and a white picket fence and playdates and a soccermom van but i hate kids lmfao so that ones impossible for me (But my sister just had a baby so i'll at least get to do auntie stuff when she gets older).

all of these things are doable aside from the last one for me..i just have zero drive and it sucks.

I'm 6', which is kind of too tall, but I weigh too much and I've never had the self discipline to lose those 40 pounds. I also have self harm scars on my arms, really bad acne that I've had my entire life, and am now 22. Pathetic in every possible way. :c

I guess at this point all you need is a rich daddy and hundreds of thousands of Instagram followers to get signed to an agency, but that's not exactly realistic either.

i always dreamed of being a country/folk singer. i don't even have to be a famous one, i just want to travel with other musicians and sing. i practice singing when no one is around and i don't think im that bad at it, but i have terrible anxiety and can't even sing in front of people im closest to. my aunt gives voice lessons but im too afraid that the rest of my family will ask me to sing for them once they find out. ive become kind of content doing it just for myself for this long but i hope one day i can share it with others.

My old pipe dream was being an exchange student, actually going to Japanese high school, then living in Japan and learning the language. Live that anime slice-of-life.

I've had model, pop star (lol, I can't even sing for the life of me), and general "fame" wishes too, but I absolutely do not have the personality for any of them. I've realized I'm a really private person and fame means nothing really other than people know you. lolcow in general has helped me realize people get invasive with fame and there's plenty of bad reasons to be famous.

I always wanted to be a witch, a really cute one too. Kinda like a world where I was a really pretty witch's subordinate learning to be as great as her. I would have a really fluffy black cat with purple eyes. Our outfits would be something like a traditional witch, but detailed with gold. Maybe I'd have a huge crush on the queen witch too. We would live inside a cave with a very 1930s look. Have huge meetings with other soon to be witch graduates and cause immature trouble. Of course this would absolutely never happen and is kinda cringy, but I can dream right?

Are you me? Ever since I was a kid I wanted to be a witch. After watching Kiki's delivery service, I would get my mom's broom and run up and down the street trying to fly.
When it obviously didn't work, I figured I just had to wait until I was 13 for my witch powers to manifest or whatever.
I still secretly wish I had a Kiki-like lifestyle, where I could be a friendly magic user and fly on a broom. I feel so silly, but it's a good dream.

i fucking hate my tiny legs. having to wear heels/creepers/platforms every time you go out is god awful. going out in flats isn't even a choice for us. when i do wear them i'm always the smallest (adult) person everywhere i go and its uncomfortable.

also, i'm not from the US, but i've been there and everyone is fucking tall. i can't imagine living there, i'd get eaten alive. are you american, anon? if so, god bless you… everyone is so tall there, it fucks with your self esteem imo.

i think when it comes to straight M/F dating, tall women have it harder. many men have apprehension about dating a taller woman, and a lot of guys just flat out won't. you'd be hard pressed to find a guy who wouldn't want to date a woman just because she's shorter than him, or just short in general. lots of dudes actively seek out short women to have a larger height difference. really, just look around the general population and see how much more uncommon taller F/shorter M relationships are.

as such, taller women (especially when they aren't waif-thin) as perceived as unfeminine. i've had male acquaintances blatantly state that they find tall women to be masculine and unattractive. unless you're already conventionally attractive and thin, being a tall woman means working harder to fit that ~dainty, feminine~ archetype. maybe it's a bit easier for a tall woman to be perceived as sexy as opposed to a particularly short woman, but again, you have to already be conventionally attractive.

Yes, this. I am also too tall and I've had men tell to my face they were ashamed to be seen with me because I was like a tower. this is probably why i'll never date/see anyone shorter than me ever again
I see everyfuckingwhere that short woman (or avarage) are cuter, more desirable, more fuckable ("you can't lift someone as big as a tree!"), more feminine.

Good luck finding clothing, especially if you are not model thin. Most of my pants end on my calves. Sometimes I can't find a cute dress/skirt that doesn't show my vagina.

I've had women making fun of me as well, like stupid jokes and stuff like "I wanna be tall, but not anon tall".

Also, if hills are on the dress code, be prepared for everyone else looking at you like you are a circus freak. People will either find it funny or scary.

I fear for the day I go to Japan.

I am 175cm for reference, 10cm taller than the avarage in my country, and most girls I know are actually even shorter. I know some girls even taller than me (180cm and 188cm) and they probably have it even worse.

What the fuck? 175 is above average but barely even stands out in a western country. Where do you live? It's exactly the height where you're considered modelesque but not an amazon.

lmao I misspelled, sorry.


I live in South America and in my experience, yeah, people won't give you a second glance on the subway, of course, you're not considered an anomally, however when you start talking to people it's always like

>omg you're too tall

>if you were like 2cm taller i probably would not go out with you
>how do you buy shoes??
>how's the weather up there? huehueheu
>do you play basketball? you should play basketball
>must be hard for you to date
>how you look like a horse (in my country this means you're big in general, not necessarily that you have a horse face)
>are you a lesbian? (not that this offends me, but people asking me about my sexuality solely base on my height of all things is baffling)
>i wish i was tall but not as tall as you
>i thought you were way shorter when we talked online

etc etc.

The avarage height for women here is 165m and 175cm for men. Of course, there is taller men thank god, but I think most of my male friends are my height or just a tad bit taller, like 176 or 177. My current boyfriend is 181 and people often comment on our "height as a couple" (??)

I am not saying that that I am opressed and ChEcK UR ShORT PRIviLEgE!!, it's just that it's pretty annoying because since I was eleven and 165cm people comment on my height unwarranted. Like I said, I people don't look twice at me on the street (they do with this 188cm friend of mine), but once they start talking, it gets annoying as fuck.

(btw no one likes stumpy proportions, but you can be short/avarage and have good proportions, most k-idols are like 165cm)

Also, samefag to add: probably if I had a 17 BMI, people would say something different. I guess when you are thinner people usually consider my height to be more attractive and ~elfish~, but since I'm not rail thin, people just think I am big and unfeminine.

My sister is even taller, and she's fit and hot and gets nothing but positive attention.

I don't really care about recognition. Just want my existence to contribute in some meaningful, positive way.
However, my GPA tanked these past two semesters which will drop my acceptance to certain companies for co-op/internship positions to -35%. Organic Chem 2 and Physics 2 fucked me up real good. I'm also not charismatic enough to sell myself in interviews, and I'm basically a social sperg who stutters when someone's attention is on me. The smoldering ashes of my already impossible dreams are being stomped to nothing with every passing semester lmfao.

I know some ppl say that being good at maths isn't all that important when learning to program but I attempted a CS degree 6 years ago and even though there was literally no math prerequisite I still couldn't keep up and eventually had to drop out.

Aside, I also want to code but dismiss it as a potentially automated skill quite soon down the line.

Maybe they have those types of "connotations" if you're mentally confined to anime and pornos, but these skirts have been worn for ages without issue.

No. 73543

Hmm I guess the issue is that I haven't seen more sophisticated ways of styling them.

No. 73549

I avoid overkill combos. I never do plaid AND pleated, it's one or the other. If I have a short plaid skirt I balance it with a more serious/masculine/less revealing top (wooly sweater, turtleneck, etc.), thicker stockings in winter, and avoid shirts and blazers at all cost so I don't look like I'm wearing a school uniform, especially if I'm already wearing ankle socks or a beret for instance.

The pic >>73530 posted are good examples. If you are small and/or look younger you'll get away with more. If you're scared of what people may say, as long as you don't have only cute pieces or overdo it you'll be fine. But if I may say, you could also not not give a shit and go all out. I sometimes do, because rules are meant to be broken (except plaid and pleated) and fuck people. The worse I've gotten was "I like your skirt" and "are you British?".

That I'll be rich ad be able to afford designer clothing and top of the line electronics and all the expensive things that very wealthy people have.

I'm 26 years old and I've never made it passed holding down a retail job. I'm bombarded by medical expenses, and I have a boatload of student loans. I don't think I'll ever be able to own a house, let alone live a life of luxury. But I still find myself thinking these ridiculous things, like when I pick out a new shirt from target, or I find a new hole in the lining of my thrifted purse. I think to myself "well, this is ok, it's only temporary- this will just be a funny memory when I can buy my designer bag, or high end clothes". When I get my food at the dollar store I imagine what it will be like when I'm so wealthy I can pay a nutritionist to plan meals for me and shop at whatever grocery store I want.

It's painfully obvious it's never going to happen, I don't know why I do it anymore. Maybe it's just a coping mechanism that will never go away.

Also wanted to design clothes, video games, make movies, animate cartoons… too many dreams, that I don't think I can manage to taste one.

I too, wanted to be a model. I even had a interview with NEXT models in NYC when I was 19 but it happened on literally the worst week of my adult life, I was suicidal and was up all night trying to dye my hair ( which was dark brown with blue steaks) to blonde. I came in with fucked up half light green/blonde hair and half brown because I ran out of dye. Obviously I got the boot but maybe it was a blessing in disguise because this was at the height of the concentration camp chic and I am sure they would have ordered me to lose at least 20 pounds.

I later got signed to much worst, rachet tier agency but never got anywhere, I was too short to be signed with serious agency ( 5'7) no matter how much I worked on my portfolio and my face wasnt crazy cat like to make up for the height. I had exactly two paid jobs, one which I got because I contacted the photographer myself to be in one of his art series and he later cast me in a campaign.

I got over the model thing at this point it but I still feel blinding rage when I see girls as short, medicore and thick as me getting signed and getting jobs and making money because of their family connections or befriending models and getting social media clout.

Anon as someone who just left the library field (was an academic and public paraprofessional) and gave up that dream:

There are like ten times as many applicants as paraprofessional jobs posted. And lots are getting cut, too. The comfiest and best library jobs are in colleges / schools which are ridiculously competitive unless you want to live in a really podunk town ( and even then in my not so large city, people moved to take the jobs )

You’ll probably end up in public libraries. It’s a glorified customer service job. I got screamed at by ghetto ass parents, verbally abused by swaths of smelly homeless men with nowhere else to go, had to clean syringes out of the bathrooms , and the other 99 percent of my time was just spent cashiering people out or shelving books and showing old people how to print 159 times a day.

I mean it is comfy in the very very very boring sense. You’re just not going to be helping people find interesting knowledge and stuff. But I wasn’t going to sink money on an unnecessary masters to do this job a high school kid could do.

I know anon, but still. I know it's nowhere close to reality but I can't help but picturing myself organizing books back in my tiny village library. I guess it's more of a nostalgia thing.

Ever since I was in primary school all the way up til highschool I was really good at drawing. I drew a lot of catholic stuff as a kid that got framed in halls and the headteachers office (went to catholic schools) and when I got to highschool I was put in its 'gifted and talented' program, basically if you were exceptionally good at art, theatre, dance etc you got certain perks like school trips and stuff.

But the thing is, certain horrible life events happened from when I was a kid and had repercussions on me through highschool whether it be from bullying, court cases, therapy etc and I got depressed, insomnia and would having very horrible nightmares about it.

I dont talk about it anymore with anyone except my boyfriend but I think one of the biggest signs I had/still exhibit when it comes to depression is I simply cannot finish any type of art/drawing anymore and haven't been able to since I was 15. Even now at 20, I remember atleast being to draw whatever as a way of relaxing but now I just get angry, frustrated and upset when I sit down to do it now. All I ever wanted to do as a kid was be an illustrator or a comic book artist.

I've made the best of my situation since then, I'm a psychology student now but there was a period from 15 - 18 years old where I had such a strong self hate towards myself because I had always thought the only thing I have ever been really good at was drawing/art. I dont know if I'll ever shake off those horrible feelings I get when it comes to drawing.

My dream is to live freely.

Might seem not so impossible but for somebody with my personality it is. I was always a weirdo, obsessed with keeping everything in order. I was always very strict with myself, even got an ED. As a teen I only allowed myself to listen to classical music, read foreign literaure, dressed in blouses, pullovers and trenchcoats etc. I had some (bad) friends, but ended up losing them. Now I've lost control over my live and hate myself for it. I wish I never started starving myself, because I was pretty skinny to begin with. I wish I wasn't such a nerd and instead focused more on making friends and superficial stuff like being stylish. I wish I just wouldn't give a shit whether my room is messy or whether something that was "dirty" touched something that's clean and therefore makes me start from anew. Even when I do go out (like once a year) I end up not being able to enjoy it because some detail is out of place, like e.g. I hate my akeup (read: my face) or something happens that I didn't expect.

I'm still somewhat young but wish I could be a teen again. I never flirted with anybody, I was never "desired" by anybody. I wouldn't want to be a slut, but just a pretty, somewhat popular girl, with girlfriends, do some crazy stuff, risk somehing. I want to stay up all night, and even if it's just getting some pizza and beer. I want to be interested in normal things and therefore being able to conect better with others. I wish I was somehow granted a restart. (or at least some miracle that makes me stop being shy, anxious, miserable and rids me of IBS).

Pic related, going on a road trip, maybe to a rock concert or festival with a best friend would be heaven.

Tfw I have the personality you want for yourself but could never get anyone to go to a festival or gig with me. Guys will go with me and put the moves on, girls don't want to go to festivals and gigs.

It's hard to make good friends and I don't think it's your fault. Your character is perfect for you. Even if you were the easy-going person you want to be, you may still be dissatisfied with your experiences, as I am. Honestly am much happier being hermit queen than trying to please dozens of people who only think about themselves.

I wish I lived in a pretty house with two boyfriends who love me and each other. Sometimes we'd play-fight over each other or pretend to get jealous, but none of it would ever be serious. We'd spend entire days just cuddling in one large bed (and maybe having threesomes), have picnics, movie marathons, cook together, etc. At least one would be a photographer, and we'd take lots of cute aesthetic photos at forests, beaches, etc. We'd also all go to abandoned places together to explore, take more photos, have our own little private parties and hang out. They'd dress me up like a doll and take care of me, and I'd comfort them, stroke their hair, share all sorts of music with them, write novels or short stories for them (or with, if they like writing), and listen to all their worries without judgment.

>you're fucked

do you honestly think these women are fucked? they trade up often as well through affairs, and divorce money is a thing.

No. 94220

Why would you want a life where you're married to someone you hate for money, try to trade up, have affairs, and depend on divorce money tho. Not to mention a wife's standard of living is more likely to go down after divorce while the husband's is more likely to go up. Money runs out eventually; if you got married young and don't have career experience (plus taking care of kids) you could very well get fucked over

No. 94222

who's talking about marrying young? god anon it's someone's fantasy, they know it's not gonna happen, and even if they're fantasizing over it they don't need you grounding them in reality.

the kinds of women anon is talking about don't live in the same world that people like you or i do.

No. 94223

Statistically, women are very likely to be impoverished by divorce. Stuck with the kids, but with a huge gaping hole in their work history and education. Men lose money to alimony but their earning potential just grows over time.

Very rich men have very good lawyers. I would not assume women escape with good financial standing, many probably choose to tolerate cheating rather than go through a divorce and have to downgrade their lifestyle. And I dont know what middle aged women you know that trade up, but this discussion is not about hot young trophy wives who theoretically could.

No. 94224

I know plenty of women who live that life, and yes they're marrying young because otherwise their old gross ass husbands wouldn't want them.

>too shit at maths despite…

Was this in school or college? I wasn't great in maths either in school. Now I'm doing computer science, and I got through the math subjects by sitting down EVERYDAY studying my ass off. Some of them actually ended up being my favourite subjects (linear algebra, numerical analysis).

I felt math in school was very different from math in college. Imo with enough dedication and effort, college-level math is doable for anyone (as long as they don't have a learning disability I guess?).

I'm writing this because I too, wanted to go into a field that just wasn't were my strengths lay, but I made it work, and I want to encourage you to try it too. Are you from a country where higher education is relatively cheap? If so I'd definitely say give it a shot. If it doesn't work out you still gained some experience that you can apply in the path that you do end up choosing for yourself.

I believe in you anon!

Damn anon, congrats, I admire you so much!

The thing is that I have this really weird block when it comes to maths, I love the theory, I understand how it's supposed to work but everytime I have to apply it I fail, it's ridiculous how dumb I appeared to teachers bc of it. I remember sweating like crazy during exams cause I knew how to do the thing but overthinking made me fail.

I'm French, and it's too late to work officially in this field. The French university system is extra cheap but it's determined by which "baccalaureat" you passed. Scientific oriented formations won't allow you in if you passed a litterature baccalauréat, doors close automatically. You might try and do what we call a "prepa" (preparatory class) but it's incredibly expensive, and leads to many burnouts.
Even if you take the maths option while being in litt (which wasn't even an option at my highschool), all scientific courses will exclude you or put you at the bottom of lists.
I'm almost 19 btw so I'm pretty young, but the French education system is very weird and it's not getting any better. So I'm just going to continue what I'm doing rn (languages) bc I excel in it.
Anyways thank you , it's really heartwarming to know that you got in it !

I was in a very similar situation, had a passion for acting and it is the only thing I can see myself doing but I was forced to major in physics. Did that for 2 years and was constantly depressed. I was thinking at least it is a safe choice and it would give me a stable job but knew I would never be happy this way and would always have this "what if" at the back of my mind. I am now 20 and said fuck it and changed schools. I'm about to start my first year in drama school and although I'm happy I still feel like I completely wasted 2 years of my life and time is running out.
It was very hard to make my parents understand and support this decision though.

I understand if you can't drop everything and just sing, but maybe you could do open mics, or youtube videos, or start a band, or maybe join a singing group in your university if you have one.

How do you guys deal with the fact that you will probably never reach those goals?

I always wanted to move away from my little hometown, even migrate to another country, and be part of a rock band.

When I graduated I realized that I couldn't, but at least wanted to go to uni and study something "artsy". Turns out I can't draw well enough.
In the end I settled with studying teaching. I told myself that I at least will go abroad for a semester and when finished will move to a bigger city, to "flee" from all that boring monotonous country life here. There's literally nothing for young people. All you can do is go to traditional festivals get anniliated every day and then marry some boring guy. That's it.

Now I can't go abroad because I'm simply not a good enough student. And working here would be so comfy. The other teachers are nice, nearly no foreign kids; meanwhile in the bigger cities there sometimes are no native speakers at all in classes, meaning it would be a lot more difficult. Plus, I might would not manage to make any new friends and I'd miss my parents. I guess I'm a too much of a chicken to ever do something outside of the norm.
As a child I always told myself I NEVER want to be a teacher, I never want to stay living here and I never want to get married/kids. But it seems that I'm turning out to be exactly what I always hated.

Anyways, recently I feel so sad from time too time. When I was in my last year of hs I was so happy and hopeful and excited for the future - only to realize how childish and unrealistic my dreams were all the time.

No. 96986

I've dealt with it by embodying that average life goals twitter account tbh

But seriously, I agree life isn't as hopeful as when you're a kid. I wanted to become a comic artist since I was 8 but there's little opportunity in that field and the money isn't amazing. I also had to work around my other desires and needs that appeared as I grew older (wanting money and a househusband), weighing what was really most important to me and deciding my future based on that (it's the househusband btw).

Anyway anon, have you considered getting into your local music scene and making music pals? Maybe you could create a hobby band together. It doesn't have to be one or the other, you can balance your passions with what you "need" to do. I still draw things for fun and it feels almost more enjoyable.

And you can always move to a new place after you graduate. You may even have to for job opportunities.

Even without them, it seems like there are thousands of animators across the internet with the same damn goal but no one ever reaches out to each other. Whenever someone mentions wanting to form a studio, I'm the first to volunteer and I just end up getting ignored. It's frustrating.

I always wanted to study fashion design but ended up with teaching. I even cried on the first day of college saying I don't want to be a teacher. but I graduated somehow. now I feel like I wasted those years and wishing I would drop out. I used to work at a private academy and dealing with problem kids every day was tough for me.

now I enrolled in college again (not for fashion design though) I want a fresh start, but I'm worried that if I regret this decision later. working seems like better option maybe but I don't enjoy teaching that much.

also, my hometown is pretty basic too. I always wanted to live in a big city and escape my hometown. my new college is in the capital, so I'm moving to a bigger city. but that's another reason I'm worried, because I've never lived by myself before. I guess I'll miss my parents so much.

I just hope to feel better and happier in the future and improve myself at my new school. wish you the best for you too, anon!

I mean, I still think it would be awesome to be a pop singer or model but I don’t lose sleep over it. It’s not my purpose in life though and plus I’m too old.

I would love to be an Opera singer though. I remember going to a baseball game when I was a kid, and there was an opera singer singing the national anthem. My aunt made a comment that her voice could break glass and I thought that was so cool.

I was a bad girl when I was younger but my life is super chill and introverted now and I am genuinely really happy with it. I'd never want to undo the work on my body to match my calm life, all of it reflects how you felt at one time or another and doesn't automatically make you the tryhard looking edgy alt cow meme.

Your appearance isn't what needs to change here I guess I'm saying. Your life can be what you try your best to make it, my life is very far from boring and uneventful on the daily and has it's stress but my little family is definitely my cheesy lifetime movie dream.

I wish I could go back and start anew, my life is only filled with regrets.

Most of them stem from me being too shy to function. There were so many times that I wanted (or didn't want) something but didn't dare to tell my parents - and I still can't forget about it nowadays.
I wish I asked my parents to allow me to go to the summer camp all my friends went to as well, I wish I enjoyed my time in elementary school more, I wish I made more and better friends in high school. I wish I didn't develop an ed, I wish I didn't act so weird, I wish I had a normal teen experience, got a bf, went out, simply enjoyed life. I wish I wouldn't have been bullied or at least stuck up for myself, against assholes and against my "friends". I wish I went to prom, I wish I went on vacation after graduating, I wish I thought about what I really wanted to study. I wish I did what I wanted instead of always only listening and being obedient. I wish I had a nice university life, moved to a bigger city, lived with friends, went shopping, eating, to the cinema, was less stressed, anxious and depressed, had a bf,…

I'm close to graduating and have nothing to look forward in my life. No friends, no bf, ugly, fat, I studied the one thing I never wanted to do and I still live with my parents. My father plans to gift me a house around 100 metres from where we live, which might sound good but it also means that I will very likely end up staying in the same small town for the rest of my life. I wanted to travel, study (or live) abroad and ended up doing nothing of what I planned to do. I'm slowly getting too old for the clothes I always wanted to wear but never dared to, I have zero romantic experience, I absolutely failed in everything. I'm so jealous of little teen girls being loud, obnoxious and carefree because I've acted mature and self conscious since I was a just a young child.

I always dreamt of being a model or an actress and as dumb as it sounds, I feel like I will never be able to be happy since I'm not rich and famous. I'm the mousiest person you could imagine but I secretly only crave attention and an exciting extraordinary lifestyle. I wish I was at least pretty enpugh to bank a rich husband.
The sad thing is, even if I magically managed to lose 80lbs, transformed my personality to be charming and outgoing and maybe got a nosejob, I'd still already be too old to ever make it.
People around me are content with simple lifes, already getting engaged/married and thinking of kids but just the thought of having to live like this makes me sick.

i'm really ugly and dark compared to them which affects me very much and i just hope that i'm a cute japanese girl in my next life. i'd probably have undying confidence and all the attention i want if that were to happen. my friends always say that i have one of the best personalities ever but my looks don't make up for it which basically ruins everything. i'm even considering getting plastic surgery once i have the money.

No. 127533

You must know there's a market for this, anon. Art majors commonly get shat on by society, but nobody can deny that porn is paying. In porn specifically, commission artists have longer careers compared to porn stars and patreon/onlyfans girls because aging won't affect their job and reputation tends to increase with time.

I've always wanted to create a hugely successful saga like Avatar the Last Airbender, Harry Potter, Lord or The Rings etc. A fantasy series with its own worldbuilding that becomes an established part of pop culture. I imagine it specifically in the form of a comic book (or manga) and then into an animated TV series (anime).

I make up stories in my head all the time but they're always half-baked. I used to draw but not anymore so I doubt I'll ever be skilled enough to be a comic book artist. I'm also from a country that has no animation industry basically and adult animated series outside of Japan are still pretty much a novelty.

There's this house my mom and I toured around 3 years ago . It was around 100 years old at the end of a secluded driveway nestled in the back of a quiet neighborhood. The interior was like pic related, it was bulit halfway underground, most of the rooms had brickwalls and wooden beams supporting the ceilings, there was even a mini library. The master bedroom had a porch that lead to a huge shaded garden with a fountain and pond with little fish in it. It's literally my dream home. I fantasize all the time about it being my house.

I'm not a real programmer I just program for school when I have to (I find it really fun though). I think thinking mathematically helps a lot but you can do without it. Programming is mostly just trial and error, just think of what you want to program, look up what functions are available that can help you and try to write something, if it doesn't work, read the error messages and try to change some of your code, and then try again, and then if it doesn't work google it, and then try again, and again and again…
If you want to try, you can install Jupyter Notebook, it's an interface for programming in the python language. I think it's nice for beginners because you can do fun stuff like making graphs. I frickin love graphs, pic related is a graph I made of a ball bouncing off inclined walls, aint it cool

To add onto what the other anon said, a really good thing to do would be to really, really think about the problem before you start writing any code.Try breaking up a problem into little bits.
When I first learned how to program, I just started typing away at a solution that was inefficient, buggy, or both. For my job process, I was writing a piece of code that was garbage for two days, then realized that the first solution that I had before, but abandoned because it seemed "too complicated" (woops), was actually the efficient and cleaner solution.  Planning really pays off.

Also, debugging tools are good to learn; otherwise, you just end up writing multiple print statements and also going crazy ie. me.

I've always dreamed of being extremely rich, and living in a large penthouse or modern Greek villa, spending my days learning languages, playing sport, dressing well and filling my time with hobbies. All without being famous or anything, just like a silent entrepreneur. No reason for it other than wanting to be able to afford all of life's luxuries.

I started my business a few years ago and it's finally doing well so… this is a possibility. I just really want to achieve it by the time I'm 25 because being young and rich is better than old and rich.

The pay is kinda shit tbh, its mostly a side gig to do while im in college (I was taking a gap year when I first wrote this thread at 18), I get between 250 to 3000 depending if its just one photo for a catalog or a full blown commercial with speaking lines.

Oh my gosh, congrats anon! I wasn't expecting it to be you posting you got a modeling job, but that's such a perfect way to return to this thread. Not to be a negative person, but please keep your wits about you and don't ever let them eat into your self esteem. I know you've probably heard this a billion times anyway.
A part of me still wants to model but feels too "old" (I'm turning 24) and a bit scared of working in the industry somehow fucking with my body image more now that I've got a better relationship with my body. I almost did a portfolio and went looking for jobs when I was 18/19 but some of the adults in my life (who did work in/around the industry) kind of discouraged me because of wanting to protect me. I'm not heavily pursuing it anymore but definitely wouldn't immediately say no if I got recruited either.
I guess one of my other "impossible dreams" would be being a famous musician or some other type of artist, besides a model, but I think I may be able to cut it on a lower level of fame. Fame looks kind of shitty too anyway. Pls no bully but part of me really would love to be an art model/muse (nude included…) or vintage-styled pinup girl, but I don't want people to be shitty to me/deeply uncomfortable about it or for it to ruin my career because people have seen my body. It ties right back into the wanting to be an artist thing because I would love to help plan and contribute to this stuff or to do it all myself. If it weren't for my concerns, I think that or being a writer/musician would be the least impossible dream for me. A lot of the dreams people think are "stupid" in here are honestly so cute and sweet and I hope that you all are happy, if not today, someday.

sage for doublepost but fuck I just realized this thread is supposed to be literally impossible dreams. my dreams probably aren't really impossible but idk if they'll ever happen the way imagine them or happen at all either. I honestly think a lot of people here have dreams that are unlikely but not actually impossible minus the actual fantasy stuff

there's for sure jobs. mostly in the disability sector but you can forge a path in hospitals, community work, private practice, anywhere. I'm studying to be a dance therapist right now and that's even less well known than art therapy but the advice I've gotten is to put yourself out there. creative therapies are in this nice in between where there aren't tonnes of therapists but if you approach organisations and explain what you can offer they're really open to it because all the research is pointing toward it working a lot better than talk therapy for many populations. please go for it, it's needed!

So, my dream is to mingle in the NYC art world and become well connected with socialites and artists (kinda like what Anna Delvey did without the grand larceny.) I’m an undergrad student in rural USA who’s studying hard so I can attend post-grad at NYU or Columbia. Practicality scared me away from studying art/art history (Still don’t know if this was a smart or dumb move.)

I know this isn’t the advice thread but I felt this post would be a bit too much for it… I’m actually posting with the intent to get advice, so if anyone has any tips pls tell

I have a kind of similar aspiration anon. Right now I’m at a state school and I grew up in a rural area but I’m trying so hard to get into an Ivy League grad school or at least go to a grad school in New York or Philly, I’m majoring in journalism so I’d have reasons to be there but I just want to be a party girl and make connections in the industry.

I grew up wanting to be a movie star. At that moment, I had never been so sure of something in my life, I was very passionate about acting, I'm a very charismatic person and the glamurous-hollywood lifestyle was very attractive for me, I really wanted to have fans, be in massive movies, travel the world, attend red carpets, land contracts with luxury brands and so on, so on.
Then I started to really see what comes with being the public figure I wanted to be and now I found celebrity culture and Hollywood disgusting and I know I'd be paranoid and unhappy if I was as exposed like celebrities are.
Nowadays I've cultivated completely different mindsets, new hobbies and interests. Still want to be able to afford some of their luxuries tho

No. 151613

Not really advice but I’m a college student in nyc and I love hearing my art history professors’ stories about New York art scene in the 1970s and I totally know what you mean. But things are so different now because rent is so high and the job market is so competitive. I guess if I had any advice it would be make as many connections and friendships as you can with classmates, professors, and other people. You never know if someone in your class will end up famous or if they have famous relatives, and a friend/classmate might be the one who gets you a job.

I literally cannot even fathom wanting to hang out with people who are famous in the New York art scene but you do you anon. My tips would be to make the ugliest art possible and most importantly: never, ever have a good haircut.

I want to worm my way into the celebrity scene without becoming an actual celebrity, maybe as a behind the scenes person or outsider who has contact with them, and befriends them. I dream of either finding one central celebrity guy to leech off of or hopping from guy to guy, as well as hooking up and hanging out with female celebs on the side. The idea of being surrounded by the filth of being famous without being famous outright is very appealing for some reason, I guess I'm just a greedy, pathetic attention seeker. I'd love to be an author or someone actually in spotlight, but I figure I'd be too unnoticeable and untalented, middle of the road to end up there. The idea of drifting around the scene or serving as a spectator to it is more appealing. I feel filthy just for writing this, I should want to be above such shallow aspirations. To be above the idea of wanting to be near such a shit industry.

Hate to tell you this anon, but that scene extincted upon covid. It was kinda of held up artificially anyway before that but restriction of social life really tanked it, people were sick and tired and the unceasing partying at these shitty big box clubs and bloated fashion weeks, it's been slowly ebbing down a while now. The era of the big box art star-mingling with celebrities and billionaires was like 2008-2015.

Pretty impossible is my fantasy of being great at martial arts. Just to be strong and low key buff at 5'3, and secretly have the ability to kick anyone's ass. Ugh just fantasizing how safe it would make me feel in everyday life is euphoric.

Impossible cos not only is it cringy to be adult fatty in a kid's karate class but my joints are decaying before my eyes so contact sport is a bad idea. I can barely keep up with Pilates without fucking up my knees and shoulders somehow.

I wanted to be an FBI agent as a kid, because of X-Files and MIB. I was obsessed with aliens. Then I found out that's not what the FBI does…

More recently, I wanted to model as well. I did some as a teen for my hair dresser's salon at the time (like 14 or 15?). I was rail thin and have an okay face, so it wasn't out of the question. I tried to get myself out there, but had no idea how to brand myself or market. I'm 25 now and asked my cousin to talk to Tyra Banks (they're kinda friends as my cousin did runway with her). Tyra basically said I'm too alternative and old and said I'd never make it onto her shitty reality show.

I've been really jealous of my cousin who modeled in Japan. But she's a skinny, white, blonde girl, so of course she was able to model out there.

I turned to camming and porn at like 19, but the market is so saturated now and I'm really nothing special. So now I gave up and bartend.

Yeah but her mother was already involved with the industry and she paid for her acting lessons and Naomi did some commercials as a teen, and some tv drama as a young adult and then she befriended Nicole Kidman. It's all about connections and being in the right place at the right time. I don't even live in USA or Australia, the industry looks different in my country; working actors with no degree in acting basically don't exist, even people who appear in shitty tv series graduated from a drama school. In western countries you can become famous without school, such phenomenon doesn't exist here. And if you don't enter school at 18-23 you're already too old. So yeah.

I genuinely feel I could have become the top of my country if I continued training and took it seriously but I try not to think too much about it.

lowkey in the same headspace rn. after i graduate college i'm thinking about taking a gap year and doing some traveling, but i have so many places i wanna live in and see so idk if that would be sufficient.

i think having a job that provides travel is something that im gonna try to pursue, and having a partner with the same vision is ideal.

settling down in a suburb really sounds like my worst nightmare. i'd feel so trapped and probably lose it, seeing people live that lifestyle depresses me.

I want to fuck one of my celebrity crushes, or my bucket list of them, and leech off them and use them to gain clout and friendships, be a starfucker, but the kind who can linger around for awhile. I want to be well known at least and join a bunch of exclusive circles by worming my way there, whether it involves sex or not. I have no integrity, I just want thrill before I fucking die.

I wish i was forever stuck in the era of the early 2000's-2011/12. i was only a kid around then so i can't remember all that much but that was genuinely the only happy time and everyone seemed so much happier. phones hadn't taken over everyones life, social media wasn't much of a thing, good music, good tv shows, good video games; everything seemed so much more innocent and comfy. i truly hate living in the 21st century and i feel awful for kids growing up nowadays

Eh I was a kid/teen/young adult in that era and things were still pretty shitty. Just different bullshit.

No. 205933

Things were shit back then too. A lot of kids were already terminally online, any online space was full of pedos, authority figures were still bent on stranger danger without considering how it translates to the web, ana chan bodies were the ideal, porn was booming(my classmates were already pornsick by 2010), you were a social outcast if you didn't have the newest motorola razr and later iphone. Things are worse now, but young people were already glued to screens. When facebook came it was a nightmare, your social standing was dependant on how many friends you had and how many likes you got. My friends used to agonize over what to post because you would get made fun of in school if you flopped. Cyberbullying was taking off and no one knew what to do about it and you couldn't even get it taken down or effectively block people.

No. 205935

I cannot agree. Things were stinky, but the way things are now makes those times seem ideal. At least there weren't genderfluid 12 year old dream stans, kids could be terminally online but at least it was less common, and there was a greater feeling of optimism, innocence and national unity. Also, phones had less function- instead of being a telephone, workspace, mini theatre, identity- technology was far less intertwined with our daily lives, allowing more freedom and more face to face and real experiences. Now school can be online, shopping is online, chatting is online (bc of lockdowns) but everything that is online is heavily filtered, so it feels less real too.

There's less unfiltered dialogue without censorship, which I hate, because I want to conclude that something is dumb without being shielded from it, and we have been giving the state too much power under the pretense of our own safety and fairness. I think 2010 was stinky, but this is so much worse. We could have fixed things a lot easier back then.

I would say being very girly and doing girly things
Its not an impossible dream but I just grew up surrounded by brothers a decade and a half older than me so I never figured out how to be a girl
Sometimes I look at girls younger than me enjoying being cute and I never got the chance because I was overprotected like crazy
I really want to reclaim that and just dress in whatever, not be scared to waste money on things like fashion and makeup because its not a waste and just in general have a 'girly' kind of job
My mental state is what stops me from achieving this basically

I want to have huge breasts. Purely for myself, not male attention. I do not like men. I do not want to show them off. I already have issues with my back and finding tops that fit right, but I'd easily put up with those issues 10x if I could go up at least 4 cup sizes.

I've always had a breast complex. Even before puberty. Lucky for me, puberty hit me like a truck and as soon as I was 11 I had huge boobs out of nowhere. I didn't notice until around 7th grade when a bunch of my classmates brought it to my attention, but as soon as I realized I was busty I was never satisfied with my chest. I wanted to go bigger. Not outrageously so, just prominently. It's an impossible dream because I want them to be natural. Surgery is not an option unless it's fat transfer… But I don't know where it would come from since I don't want to look like the letter P. My ultimate dream would be to suddenly have gigantomastia like the adult actress Hitomi Tanaka. I don't like porn, but I love her look. And no, boobs aren't sexual to me. In my eyes, they're the apex of femininity and very beautiful. But mostly I just like the way they look. I've tried just about every non-surgical quack method there is, hoping something would work. Massages, supplements. When I was 18 I ordered boxes of these cookies that were supposed to help grow your breasts. None of it worked, obviously. Though I'm so dumb I'd probably try again if some other titty snake oil product hit the market. I'm just that desperate.

I got hurt bad earlier this year and during recovery, I dropped 20lbs. It took me from around a K-cup back down to a H. I can no longer fill a bra that was bordering on too small for me before the weight loss and sometimes it makes me physically ill to think about. I've almost gained it all back but now my breasts are just droopier and saggier than before, like thick pancakes. I want to die.

Ever since I was a toddler I wanted to be a gymnast, I loved the idea of doing cool acrobatics and wearing the pretty outfits they wear.
But my mom wouldn’t let me get into gymnastics, she told me that the only decent gym in the city had issues with the teachers molesting the students.
That honestly shocked me a lot because I was just a child, and I cried so much because my dream wasn’t even going to the olympics, I just wanted to show off my flexibility.

I wish I was confident about being on social media as some kind of public figure, I know a few girls who are a bit famous online and they make so much money it makes me rethink my life choices. But realistically that would consume my life and mental health in the worst way, but damn it’s hard seeing people post one photo and get paid thousands so they can do whatever the hell they want at such a young age. It’s such an anomaly and I can’t help wondering what it’s like to be rich off of something that’s frankly so useless and simple.

Sounds more like a wish but I always dream of having my family and I live a comfortable wealthy life in a nice big house with all of us having our own rooms and yards with outdoor lights, green grass with shady trees to picnic under and huge spaces for gardening. I also wish my family could fix their relationships with each other and it's tiring that I have to play as the convincer, messenger or the linking bridge to this family.

I want all of us to get along and have more than enough money to get or do the things we want and to fix our problems. Not having our house filled with unmatched or out of place furnitures/items and oddities, not having to worry about bills, insurance, house rent, the possiblity of moving out or going through health related issues as time continues to grow more expensive. We could be traveling, going to places, trying new things and spend time with each together stress-free then again we got jobs to take care of to earn money, keep a roof over our heads and food on the table. It's like we're going no where and I'm sure a dream like this is never going to happen.

I actually post about it before, but it keeps coming in bouts, so what the hell.
This is very dumb, but sometimes I still daydream about being in Tokyo/Japan for my research project and being scouted by someone on the street (like a real agent, not gaijin hunters) or catching the eye of an obnoxious japanese TV show and becoming a model/tarento. This is obviously never going to happen because I am literally the anti-japanese beauty standard lol


>broader frame
>not super skinny
>nearing my 30s
>despite having a gaijin nose, I have black hair and brown almond eyes so no "anglo gaijin novelty"
>kinda ugly anyway

The only way this would ever be possible is if I had a "Gap moe" appeal, having this image that is very "gangster" but actually being cute/polite/dressing in lolita maybe. Kinda like Lady Beard lol But not only is that a very, very small chance, but it's like… I'd probably have to be signed to an agency before going to Japan, anyway.

It's so stupid that I still have teenage tier daydreams like that, but I can't help it. Probably they'll disappear when I get to Japan again, because I'd be too busy to think about being a moderu tarento gaijin san kek

I've always dreamt about running away because of fucked attachment issues. It used to be going to live in Japan ofc but when I went solo travelling there I got very lonely very quickly.

Now it's changed to living alone in a cottage by a stream in the middle of nowhere. Growing my own fruit and vegetables and preserving them, keeping chickens for eggs and meat, a goat or a cow for milk. Not needing money for anything. Burning wood for heat and some kind of filter system for the stream water. Tending my home and woodworking and sewing. Never talking to anyone.

I know it's unrealistic and a basic bitch cottagecore dream

I also have a reoccurring daydream to get me to sleep where I think about what I'd do if I woke up one day and I was the only person on earth. My usual plan would be to travel to a celebrity's house and fuck shit up, go inside museums and touch the artefacts, go try on expensive clothing, basically do whatever I want, then score some drugs for the day when I inevitably get too lonely to keep living so I get wasted and jump from a high building

I wish I could date/marry a woman who is reserved to the point of being stoic, even stand-offish, on top of being very smart, confident, and successful, so people find her intimidating and hard to approach. But then when she's with me it all melts away and she's very affectionate and gentle and sweet. People would be totally shocked to see her treat me that way and she'd just be like picrel. I'm sure women like this exist but how common is it? Even if I met one, there's no reason for her to have any interest in me, I'm very unattractive and have nothing to offer. Hence the impossible dream…

Good news Nona! Men don't actually have standards. They will talk shit, idolise pornography, put women down, and encourage us to criticise each other too, but at the end of the day they will settle for basically any woman available. This isn't an advice thread but I think if you have such low self esteem that you feel fundamentally "ruined" and unlovable then you should not be dating or trying to date. Men can smell that vulnerability and will take advantage of it.

one time, like years ago, maybe 3, i got very sick and could barely speak. during the time i fantasized about a voice box of sorts that'd hold down my vocal cords while also stabilizing them and whatever, so i could finally be able to sing. i have musical hearing, can read sheet music, but i can't sing to save my life, so ever since that time in my lifei fantasize about this. i listen to music and i imagine me, with a giant voice box around my neck, binding and constricting my vocal chords and bringing out just the right sound i want. i've always wanted to sing, so, so much. if the technology would be real, i'd slit my neck to have this happen. how i wish.
