Post subject:  What do you want?

I want sunrises and winters. I want to be allowed room to think and to be praised for my ingenuity and creativity. I want to not be scolded when I do things a little different than is expected. I want to lie on the banks of a lake with someone (even an animal) that I am sure loves me. I want to be able to weep without feeling silly or like it is not the appropriate time to cry. I want to ride a bike. Always. I want to have long, flowing hair and I want to have no hair. I want to feel validated and praised for my craft - and without note of how I look or whether I am a girl or not. I want to garden and work in the dirt and cook for anyone willing to share and clean up their plate afterwards. I want to hear and tell stories of sorrow and joy and times when we never thought we'd be okay again and times we forgot sadness existed.
I want everyone and everything to be honest and without corruption based on self-consciousness, greed, intolerance, embarrassment, willfull ignorance, or jealousy.
I want us to work to be forgiving, understanding, accepting (no matter what), constructive, playful, and at least mostly positive.
What about you?

I want my professors to hear what *I* think and analyze, not the words I spit back out from old cases. I want to get back in touch with my creative side.

I want Everything.

Hah. Ok.

I want to finish school, get married (or something, with a certain someone : D) and have an awesome job. Or at least an enjoyable job. Sounds like a cliché, but I don't care : p

I want violent acts to stop. In my country and everywhere else. I'm sick of it. It's something that disgusts me terribly, specifically the femicides in Ciudad Juárez.

Sometimes what I want becomes what I need. I usually want people to look at my work and tell me they like it. I want my kids to grow up to be their truest selves. I want my sister to see that I am valid and not an emotional punching bag.

But usually, I just want to fall asleep to the sound of rain.

I want enough money to finish college and go on to medical school.
I want for there to be a time in the future where bigotry has been non-existent for so long that there isn't even a word for it.
I want to be able to afford to cook fantastic dinners and invite all my friends to come eat with me.
I want a cat.
I want to be able to stop taking my anti-depressants.
I want my PCOS to disappear.
I want to learn to play guitar.
I want to learn yoga.

On a less serious level...I want a warm chocolate chip cookie in my mouf.

I want to feel at home and make new friends. I want to create and share more of my artwork. I want to love. I want to eat durian in my apartment without having the smell linger for days and days and days. I want more tattoos. I want a job that I love. I want my dogs and family to be healthy and happy. I want to have a routine and have adventures at the same time. I want to feel safe, confident, loved, happy with my body. I want to do something amazing on my birthday!

Most of all, I want happiness for all of us!

I want this for you! I've watched my sister struggle with fibromyalgia for the past 15+ years, and it's really made me appreciate how chronic pain can make even the most enjoyable things a huge effort (at best), or just take over your life (at worst).

This is an interesting idea for a thread. Hmmm.
I want the people and animals I love to be well and happy, and to do what I can towards making that happen.
I want to stop beating up on myself when I'm not perfect at everything, all the time.
I want to be mindful, in the face of my own challenges and difficulties, of how ridiculously fortunate I am, and that not everyone is as lucky. I want to be grateful for the good things I have, have had in the past, and will (I have no doubt) have in the future.
In purely selfish terms, I want the opportunity to pursue (and maybe even reach!) my full potential and do the work I love.

I want someone who makes me feel like they truly love me and whom I am capable of loving back, and I don't want to be afraid anymore.

Post subject:  Re: What do you want?

I want a lot.

I want people to take 2 seconds out of their forking day to click on a charity site. I want people, if not to stop hating, then to at least to rationally arrive at their reasons behind said hatred. To stop parroting talking points, or citing subjective beliefs as objective facts.
I want the state of employment law to change. I want the presence of a sex video, or a job as a stripper, porn performer, or escort to not be a cultural bar to employment. I want bad credit and prior criminal convictions (unless directly related to the job) to not be considered on employment applications or raises.
I want people to be open to discussion. To bring their premises to the table, hear and rebut an opposing set of them, and walk away with more than they started with.
I want people to think occasionally of the suffering of which they spare themselves the sight, and I want them to do something about it. I want to be able to more concretely affect the suffering of which I spare myself the sight. I want there to be less suffering.
I want the deaths of others to mean something, but I also want it to take less of a toll on those closest to them.
I want to unravel how the world got to be such a mess. I want to find a time when it wasn't. And I want the answer for why it is, and may always have been, to not be "human nature."

On a more personal and selfish note, I want to graduate law school, somehow "win" at the post-law school game of life, figure out what it is I'm looking for relationship-wise (right now, I'm pretty sure I want to clone myself with a collective consciousness and have a loving, monogamous relationship with most of the gay men on Earth), get over the issues I have with my last relationship, be versatile, make my parents proud and everyone I come into contact with happy.

ETA: Thanks, Everything! I needed that. :-)

Post subject:  Re: What do you want?

I want for people to stop giving me that look or asking 'is that legal?' when I say my wife and I are married.
I want for people to stop rolling their eyes and tuning me out when I answer why I don't eat meat or drink milk.
I want my neighbors to stop being nosy and the college kids behind me to stop parking in my driveway.
I want SOME FORKING PLACE AROUND HERE TO HAVE A VEGAN CUPCAKE.

Sorry for the shouting.

:) Me too. I was worried other people wouldn't reply and I was just sending empty hopes into the universe but y'all have proved me wrong. Keep on wantin', people! It keeps us alive!

Dear Bun, maybe it's the mother in me, or the fact that I'm probably the oldest PPK'er...please don't be afraid. It sounds cliched, except I've found it to be true, the more we can love, nurture and be considerate to ourselves, the more people who show up respond in kind. You can have what you want by being it. Hope you don't mind what I've written.

*hugs for fezza and koti* Me too. I want my endometriosis to be gone forever.

I want to be a vet. Not just a vet, but an excellent one. I want to specialize in shelter medicine, oncology, surgery and internal medicine. I want to find cures for terrible diseases. I want to win a Nobel Prize.
I want to have a farm. I want it to be in the Qu'Appelle Valley, and I want there to be hills. On my farm, I want to go out every morning and scream "the hills are alive with the sound of music" at the top of my lungs. I want to have a veterinary hospital there, with world-class specialists. I want to rescue animals, and have a cross between Farm Sanctuary and Best Friends Animal Society.
I want to be brave, and woo the boy I like. I want to stop being afraid of other people. I want to be like a normal person and be able to go out in public or go hang out with friends, and not worry about stupid things.
I want to join roller derby. I want to learn different languages. I want to be better at math. I want to get really good at crocheting, learn to knit, and learn to sew. I want to make my own clothes. I want to get a tattoo sleeve of marine fish. I want to get married. I want my mom to be happy forever, and her migraines to go away.

But mostly, I just want to be happy.
