No dreams, aspirations, hopes, or goals. None as a child, either. Never had the confidence for that sort of thinking. I've always dreaded the long-term future, as far back as I can remember. It's always been terrifyingly uncertain or hopelessly bleak.
In the big picture, nothing matters.

My goal is to get true university and get a good lifetime job so i can start travelling to random isolated places in nature and do nothing. but that might change.

Except writing a novel and get enough money to withdraw from the world.

It seems to me that your goal is getting the money, and the novel is just the easiest perceived way to achieve that. Hence not being able to write the thing. If your goal genuinely was To Write A Novel, then you'd be doing it. I know some writers and they are mostly miserable people with books coming out of them like the chestburster in Alien. Not something any rational person aspires to.

That seems a schizoid thing as far as I can tell: You want a quick result in something that you invest your time in.

I can't conclude that from your example, and the evidence from the other responses which mention going to university would tend to disprove it is a schizoid thing. I suspect that it is general human nature and increasingly rewarded/sought in our Quick Win culture.
We think too much and feel too little.
 More than machinery, we need humanity.
 More than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness.

Well, the thing is: if you have enough money, you can do what you want.
I don´t want to spend that money on a big house or car or any of that stuff. I just want to have that safety that I can choose to do nothing for a week and don´t have to worry about dying on the street because there´s no money.


I can´t speak for everybody but I go to university because I have nothing else to do.
What I meant by that quick reward menatality is that if I don´t know a) how long something takes and b) how much effort it makes for me than I don´t want to do it.

I agree with this.

To understand the universe as much as I can ;)
No material goals - just self development.

I was never able to figure out what to do. I gave up a long time ago on the idea, since I won't follow through anyway in the long run.
