$ For the Love of Money (or Love) $ Part 2

In this world, I want money and success. In this world, I am productive. I am serious, and everything I do is scheduled and done for a reason. I even reserve laughs for a particular time of day. Most days I know exactly what I want and each step I take is is taken with direction. Graduate from college. Become a nurse. Work at a state of the art medical center. Marry someone who is on my level or above, or marry no one at all. I want one of those new houses in the new suburbs somewhere in Texas and close to a cute outdoor mall and an excellent country club. I shall bore cute, obedient private schooled children who will have generous trust funds before their second birthday, but I plan to miss most of their childhood to maintain our status (Trust, they’ll thank me everytime a new trend comes out and they’re the first to try). My house hold will have one or two 6 figured checks coming in annually. In my house, there will be a walk in closet with shelves for my Jimmy Choo’s, Prada bags and couture wardrobe. People will look at me and say, “Damn…” In this world, I plan to chase paper not dreams. Be productive, not poetic. And all things of this world shall be mine.  

But in an alternate universe. I am happy. I take the time to become a doctor, save the world, write a novel and live a green life growing fat, red tomatoes in my back yard, while my children run wild like animals.
