I always wanted to be a fireman. I think I liked it more bc you could take your dog with you to work as per the whole Dalmatian thing. I loved my dog, he was my best buddy when I was that age.10

At my age, no.
The only dream that I have left is to die painlessly and, preferably, while asleep like under anesthesia.
Deep anesthesia is FABULOUS because it is literally like being dead.
>>> Your cerebrum is basically OFF.
>>> You have no thoughts, no dreams, no nightmares, no sense of time or awareness of your existence. >>> Your autonomous nervous system is keeping you alive as is the oxygen and anesthetic they give you.
And, you see, that's what's priceless. At my age, there's a lot more pain in the body and from regrets and events in your past all of which you cannot fix. And, since you have so little time left, there's no point in having personal dreams which would take years to make happen - years you don't have. This is why parents and grandparents can be happy - their dreams are now for their descendants who DO have to time to live their dreams.
I have no descendants though. The world is in shitty shape and it's not going to get better for a long time. I could see this happening 40 years ago, so I leaned toward not having kids and, by 30 years ago, I was certain (so I only dated women with hysterectomies). Anyway, since I have no kids and little time, I have no real dreams.
HOWEVER, I took inspiration from the science fiction novel "Protector" by Larry Niven. It gave me the ability to focus on a large part of who I am which was only subconsciously fuzzy before. While I have no kids, as a member of a generation older than you, it is my duty to do what I can to protect you and prepare you as best I can. Thus, I have a G@G account and answer your questions. It's my small way of trying to help the next generations of humans.
