1) Exercise more. (I'm sure most here need to, even though you may not be overweight. I know I'm not!)
2) Girlfriend. (Surprised this hasn't been mentioned yet.
3) Get a patent. (More for myself than for profit. I need to know my ideas aren't all junk.)
4) Get an album released. (My first one, of course, will be poorly recorded and free!)
5) Drink more on holidays. :lol: :P

More ideas for the future:

1) Buy a large countryside property. (About 15-30 minutes from my house are plenty, this eliminates the need to drive far to places and is good protection against zombies. :D )
2) Install rather efficient solar panels (25%+) or wind generators on my property. (Right now solar energy sold to the grid is worth 4.5x as much than wind...so...)
3) Collect enough money to do #1 and #2.
4) Collect enough money to do fun expensive things I'm not able to do now. Like restore a classic car from scratch. Or restore a classic car from scratch and install a hydrogen fuel cell hybrid engine or something wonky like that.

@ Kyo
Yeah, I tried redoing a NES cart slot, and I still haven't got it right. Just stripping 72 wires frustrated me.

University...

EJ: Yeah I figured you'd do that as well. The difference is you actually have a chance at a contract of some sort, having a band and all, and performing and all. There's no way I could do live, because I always make mistakes (I suppose I could do the singing), and I lack three or four other people.

classic car restoration is very, very expensive to do properly, if you do all the work yourself it isnt AS bad but parts and tools cost a ton! and relating to your last part there i want to do something similar. My goal is to swap the 1UZFE 4.0 liter 32 valve quad overhead cam V8 out of a lexus sc400 into my 1954 oldsmobile! i would gain something like 60 horsepower and almost triple the fuel milage (my olds gets 10mpg with the 5.7L chevy v8 it has now, the lexus gets 20-28mpg on average some as high as 30+) i figure i need about 1500$ to do the complete swap (i can probably find a parts car lexus for around a grand or less and getting the motor mounts welded and stuff makes up the rest)

Its what you call College, in the UK College means something separate.

Maybe if i were in an indie or emo band :lol:
Ska's still an independant affair at the moment, but i reckon its heading a comeback :wink:
Were still running everything off our own backs at the moment, money not a major issue its more just having someone who can get you good gigs around the country and get you decent support slots. But were doing alright, we've got a support slot with [spunge] in march (might not mean a lot to most people)

Everyone makes mistakes, its part of the process. Just gotta get yourself out there and get a bit of experiance, only way of progressing. Put an add out of something, theres always people starting bands out there.
