    To live in Scandinavia. To have one of those summer cabins which I'd actually go to every summer. To have a house with my own personal library. To have a motorbike with a lot of power. To have a family and a dog.

    And to go to MetalCamp in Slovenia

    No he's definitely dead. And that notwithstanding, how are you planning to hunt/combat a wizard with technology?

    Money, success and power.
    Haha, I love all the replies to this thread.

    My aim in life is the complete opposite to nearly every single reply on this thread.

    I don't care about becoming wealthy, famous, successful or powerful. In fact, all those things disgust me slightly.

    Material rewards have never appealed to me.

    All my goals in life are almost purely moral.

    The purpose of my life will be solely for the bettering of the lives of others, who live in terrible/oppressive conditions, without any opportunities or support.

    And I've already started ^^

    Well that's (pathetically) easy and highly unambitious.
    So what are your aims in life other than getting into Oxbridge?

    I had this question in a job interview, so I've thought about it a lot. Funnily enough my interview answer and my real-life answer are fairly similar. I want to succeed in my job and prove the people wrong who doubted me. I want to be able to look back on my teenage years and think "yeah, OK, I didn't go out as much as I could have done, people thought I worked too hard, but hey, look where I am now. Look how far I've come."

    Volunteering for charity work, helped organised the raising of £8000 for the Pakistan floods, joined Amnesty International, raising awairness of the boycott Israel campaign, obtained 1200 signatures for a petition against Shell's exploitation and inhumane activity in Nigeria, helped organize campaigns for the WILPF (A charity for the rights of women), and I'm considering joining the New Communist Party of Britain (lol).

    My activities are not "personal acheivements". They have been achieved with the hard team work of those around me, and those who supported the campaigns. For me they are just necessities, and so much more needs to be done.

    I would do anything to avoid having my aims as "earning a good salary, getting a beautiful wife, becoming famous".

    But you'd still be very happy (especially the first two, and more emphasis on the second one ) to have them. Won't you ?
