Pain heals. Chicks dig scars. Glory. Lasts forever

I'm bored lately at work while I'm taking calls so I'm going to start asking YOU my wonderful LJ friends questions. They are going to be based off this list of words I have from something. I will answer the question myself when I ask it.

What is one of your current ambitions?

I have a couple right now myself. I need to get in better shape I want to get in better shape as well. Also I would like to move up in my company more. I'm getting pretty tired of working nigths (Sun-Thurs 3pm-12am). Other then that I just want to work on being a better person. It's not that I think I'm a bad person, I think I'm far from it but I know I can be nicer and more socialable. I was explaining this to a friend last week, I don't normally say hi to people I know when I pass them at work and other places, because then they might want to talk and I'm not always one for small talk or chit chat when I'm just passing by and I'm trying to get to my destination. A lot of the guys here at work that worked in our old office when I was still working in this one thought I was a total dick because the way I would act, which is one of the reasons I didn't get a promotion that all my supervisors now agree I should have got. But you know what all the guys that didn't like me (because they didn't know me back then) are the ones I work with now at nights and we get along great and they like me. I put effort into being more accepting of people and thei differences. I'm getting better at it everyday. I still have a long way I could go though.

Last by not least I have an ambition to find a special someone settle down and have a family. I would give up all the success I've had in my job to have this. I don't consider financial success being successful in life, I don't yearn for power or fame, I want love. I want to leave this world knowing that I've made it a better place because of people I loved and the children I raised that also hopefully will have the same ambition.

To me love is the ultimate goal in life, to love someone, to be loved, and to love yourself.

I suppose I could. But then it's not like I'm actively looking anyway.

It could be just me, but if this is a normal behaviour:

... I don't normally say hi to people I know when I pass them at work and other places, because then they might want to talk and I'm not always one for small talk or chit chat when I'm just passing by and I'm trying to get to my destination...

then you may well find you're missing a lot of opportunities for this:

...I want to leave this world knowing that I've made it a better place because of people I loved...

Mostly because the people you're trying to attract may not be aware you're interested, or - when they feel the need to say something - you're unapproachable, or giving out the sensation that you're far too busy to bother noticing them. To me, it'd feel arrogant and rude, and if you'd treated me that way when we were out there, I doubt we'd be friends.

...of course that may have been the idea, in which case I'll just go back under my rock now.


As for my own ambitions...I don't really know that I have any. About the closest one I think I've stumbled across is to get the hell out of the city and buy a farm. I'm not sure that's what you meant, though. I've done the whole "find someone to love" thing and got screwed - physically and financially. I've never been known for being social, but I've never really wanted to be overly social. And I definitely don't want kids!

...but a farm...nice little tree farm, stonefruit and some pears, maybe a little truck-plot for personal yield, and a rotating field of either white or red popcorn... Yeah, that'd be really nice.

I know I can be unapproachable at times. I'm not saying that I'm not.

Besides the fact that I'm talking about aquaintences, not friends. You are a friend I don't treat friends that way. But if I'm walking to and from my car at work and someone from work passes me I rarely say hi because then they might ask how I'm doing. I'm just not a big small talk person. It tends to bore me at times. Give me a deep intellectual converstation any day.

But I realize my faults and I'm trying to change, so the whole thing is moot. IMO.

Ahh... I missed that previously. Sorry!

I'm not going to ignore people at work that say "hi" to me, but I'm not going to go out of my way to be cordial to them. So, people call me a bitch! It's not like I didn't earn that nickname already...

Heh true. A lot of people that I don't work with face to face think I'm a dick. But once they see my work ethic and the things I fight for regardless if they help me or not they respect me and like me. I have fought so many battles at work that don't pertain to me to help out the regular techs here.
