I had to log in and express my admiration for you Johnny Groove. Honestly, at first I thought you were throwing years of your life away with what appeared to me to be an unreachable goal, pursuing a dream that would never get realised. But then it struck me that you are probably already living your dream. Why do we have to fit in standards, study, graduate and get a good job, make money, marry and so on? You've chosen to pursue your dream even if it looks improbable from the regular standpoint. If that makes you happy, I say you've made the right choice. Bravo!
I kinda agree with this, though I don't share the admiration, going for unrealistic goals is a cop-out I think, because then when you fail, you don't "really" fail since you could never achieve the goal in the first place. Going for realistic goals and having the courage to fail in them is what takes more guts I think. But at the same time, it's a free country.
My post from the GM thread:
Ridiculous... You're just in it for the attention aren't you? I mean surely you must have realized by now that you have a slim chance of even getting a ranking point and no chance to make it big. But if you have the means to do it, then by all means carry on, anyone can definitely choose to do whatever with their own life
. If this gives you enjoyment then you can do it, just hope that it won't be something that you'll regret later on.
