This is my goal for when I get out of college: 1) Go to Graduate school and learn to be a librarian. 2) Be a librarian. 3) Live in an apartment complex. As I think about it, my life basically would go like this: I wake up, go to work, work, go home, and play videogames. Rinse and repeat. Now, playing videogames give me pleasure, so it should be a nice life, right? Except I don't think that's a fulfilling one. I mean, can you imagine what they'll say at my funeral? "Rest in peace, John. Librarian and gamer on the side." I mean, that's not what I want people to remember me by! Now, don't get me wrong, I'll do things other than gaming on weekends and evenings. I'll watch TV, read a book, etc. Still, I think I want to have other things in my life as well, like volunteering. I considered volunteering for an animal rescue shelter (with a no-kill policy). But what if that's not enough? I don't want to live like a hermit in my apartment, only coming out to go to work. What should I do? Am I just worrying too much? Looking too far into the future? If you have other ideas about what I could volunteer for, share. EDIT: I also wanted to include that I'm severely hearing impaired and sleep like the dead. What if something happened to the apartment complex like it caught on fire? I wouldn't be able to hear it (much less wake up) in order to escape.
