    1. Get 3 A/A*'s in my A-Levels
    2. Go to university in either America, Canada or the UK (only really a couple I'm interested in here though)
    3. Meet a decent guy and get married... somewhere hot where that's legal loooooool
    4. Go back to college for a year and do A-Level Chemistry, go on to do a degree in Veterinary Medicine
    5. Have two kids (girls or boys, not really fussed)
    6. Meet Lana Del Rey. Oh my gosh.
    7. I would say go skydiving but I'm doing that next year so errrrrrrrrrrrr... have my own house built to my design like my dad did
    8. Maybe teach (before Vet Med degree if it's done) history for a while at a school
    9. Work in a museum
    10. Earn a stable, high, salary annually.


    It's actually quite hard to think of things. Hmm.

    You've made a common mistake with 10). It's not the annual salary that matters its the hourly rate more than anything.

    Do you not want it??
    Depends.

    If I feel with that power, I can sort a lot of problems in the country and build a more safer, peaceful world I would take it.

    The only annoying thing would be the amount of pressure on my head and the amount of people wanting to have my job, so they can use it for selfish means and undo all the good I've tried to do.

    Seems odd to me why so many people put 2:1/1st for their degree grade. Why even consider the average of a 2:1?

    I don't particularly care... you know what I mean - earn a decent amount of money for what I do.

    A lot of people mentioned marrying/spending their life with somebody. Interesting considering most of TSR seems to be totally immersed in promiscuity.

    Because that isn't what I want to do

    Mind you, by the time I get married it may be legal in so many more places lol.

    I don't crave power and personally don't understand people that do, it feels like your compensating for something you want/need.

    Why do you want it?
    As long as I am happy, power doesn't mean anything to me.

    Surely if you stood outside the Mayor's office (The Armadillo Building), you would meet him in the morning.

    Einstein is probably more well known than Stalin and he didn't have much power.
