    This might be a dumb question, whatever

    I suspect the main aspiration on this academic forum will be money. Personally I don't think there's anything wrong with that, except for what derives from it. Call me boring but I just want a big house and a big family. There doesn't seem to be much more appeal in anything else, to be honest.

    What ultimately motivates you?

    I'd quite like to be a writer one day; money doesn't bother me (as long as I have enough to live to a good standard), but I would like to travel a lot and see different cultures (obviously money will be needed for this!). I'm also not very career-orientated, ie: in terms of convential jobs, getting promotions etc; I would much rather live on my own terms.

    Family and house, yup... that pretty much sums it up for me

    What do I want to?

    I want to change lives. I want to, ultimately, run a school for children with Special Educational Needs. I have a very firm plan of how this school should be run. I don't care how I live, as long as I get that far.

    Like the person above I want to travel too. I'd love a nice house, preferably one I'd designed (yea i wanna be an architect) and just be able to do the things i like such as art etc. I'd like a family at some point I guess and I'd like to take care of my parents and give them whatever they want - just like they've done for me all these years..

    wow, I thort people would have higher aspirations...

    I want to affect the lives of people in a good way on a large scale. I've been lucky enough to be blessed with everything I could have possibly imagined at this stage in life, and for that reason I want to help people less fortunate than my self.

    Aside from that when I'm older I'd like to settle down with a loving husband and have twins(one girl one boy^^). Now that would make my life complete. Gosh I'm such an idealist.

    I simply want money and all the things that come with. I'm sure I'll find happiness along the way which is important too.

    One of my biggest motives is the thought of buying my mum a nice car one day, making sure she has no mortgage to pay and letting her live in luxury basically. It's nice thinking I got my whole life ahead of me with enough time to be successful an share it with family.

    NOT money. Money doesn't interest me at all.

    I'd rather see everything the world's got to offer, make sure it's cared for, as well as making sure everyone living on it cares for eachother.

    Peace out.
