Following Your Dreams in the 21st Century

... looking around just makes me wonder, whether or not it is possible to follow your dreams in the 21st Century. Between the economy and "common" standards it almost seems impossible. I have students that say they want to grow up to be an athlete and the term, "follow your dreams" doesn't seem to exist anymore. Unless my student says he wants to be a doctor, or accountant it seems like a form of negligence if I don't warn them against the road of dreams and gear them towards the road of practicality.
     If I had my choice I would be able to open a book shop with a cafe where people can buy and read books to their hearts content. On top of doing this I could also teach a class strictly dedicated to literature so that the written word isn't something that just turns to dust along with certain morals we seem to be losing over the years. 
     Let's hope for the youth of this country and that their minds don't turn to mush and dreams an idea of the past.  I hope that we can still branch out and follow dreams that we've had tucked away for rainy days.

Decisions Decisions

So, thinking more and more of the future and what the hell I would like to do I've come up with some "maybe" ideas.

1) Finish my book
2) Teach
3) Open a bookstore

This is mindless ramble that I'm going through. I guess the fact that I'll be turning 25 in less than 6 months has me going slightly crazy. I feel like I've been an adult since I was fourteen, so I would like to start living like one.
There is a ridiculous amount of pressure and I would like to go back to feeling slightly carefree or at least creative. I feel like all my creativity or liveliness has been sucked dry due to worrying about money money and oh wait money! 

Ugh and once again this was mindless chatter bye bye for now.
