The first award that I was nominated for in my absence was an Infinity Dreams award by Shiroyuni of The Limitless Imagination. Thank you very much for your nomination, Shiroyuni! I’ve never even seen this award, I don’t believe, but then again I have been out of the loop in recent weeks. I don’t see any rules listed on Shiroyuni’s post outside of posting seven dreams that the nominee has and nominating other people to do it. I’m not really sure how to address the dream aspect. Like Shiroyuni, I’d probably lean more towards writing out goals than dreams, but let’s see how I do. Seems like fun, so let’s get started!
1 – Be Socially Outgoing
I have severe social anxiety and have been this way for about ten years now, and I’ve missed out on a lot because of it. I am working to get better with it, but it is an uphill climb to say the least. I used to be very social and at ease around both strangers and friends, and I really miss being that way; so much so that eventually being that way again really does seem like a dream.
2 – Work in the Animation Industry
I’ve always wanted to be an animator. I’ve loved to draw for as long as I can remember, and I’ve loved animations for as long as I can remember. Over time, I’ve developed a fascination with the animation process and the creation of animated features. I love reading about the history of animation, seeing behind the scenes featurettes and just overall learning about it. I have never even begun to even scratch the surface of breaking into the animation industry, however, and I really don’t think I’ll ever get a chance to even think about pursuing it.
3 – Hold a Rock Concert
Silly? Yes. Cliche? Yes. But I have always wanted to put on a great and huge rock concert just once in my life. I don’t even have to be lead singer or anything, just be on stage and have fun making music. I do play the drums, or at least I used to back in school, but I never was able to practice at home what with drums being the ultimate annoyer of parents. I couldn’t even use the little practice pad they gave us very often because it annoyed them. Still, I love music, and I’d love to be able to do that just once.
4 – Become a Voice Actor
Another feasible one, but one that likely will never happen. I’m pretty ambivalent about my voice. I’ve gotten some positive feedback on it before, but I just don’t really have a very feminine voice. It’s kinda low-ish and a little raspy. I’ve been told it kinda sounds like Ellen Page or Tex from Red vs. Blue. I still don’t think I have the chops or the range to ever be able to do even indie projects. I was selected to do a voice for a parody that someone was making of Vampire Knight quite a few years back, but the project just never happened. Other than some random Q&As and an announcement/test thing here and there, I haven’t even really recorded my voice much. I’d love to at least give it one shot, though.
5 – Gain Superpowers
What? Last I checked these were dreams. This is like mandatory dream territory. For anyone wondering, I’d most like to have elemental based powers. That’s one of the reasons why Avatar tickled my fancy so much. That sounded way weirder than I intended.
6 – Have a Pet Fox
Not entirely unfeasible, but apparently foxes have a musk that smells something fierce. Plus the domestication issue. I just love foxes and I’d love to have one as a pet.
7 – Go Into Space
I loves me some space. The stars, the planets, the technology to get there; I love it all. Technology has been advancing insanely quickly in recent decades, but I can pretty much guarantee I’ll never make it into space. A girl can dream though, right?
And now for some people who I assume dream a little dream of…well, let’s find out. I don’t know how many people I’m meant to nominate here, but I’m gonna go with five just to make it a little easier on me.
Thanks again to Shiroyuni of the Limitless Imagination for nominating me, and I hope my nominees have fun with their posts! 🙂 Visit their blogs because they’re awesome and I said so.
