Like, since I was a kid, I knew I wouldn't go to the hall of fame of sports or be the next Bill Gates. I don't have any athletic potential since I'm short and my strenghts come from social skills rather than academic achievements. I'm still young (21), with a finished career and will probably live a stereotype life of ups and downs with a nice job and a nice family.
But I always had this interest for doing ''something'' that could live longer than me and probably pass down to the future generation. Since I'm not a remarkable person for the world right now (say, like Steve Jobs was or Messi is right now), I'd love to leave my family with something I put all my heart into.
I'm currently doing some brainstorming for a rather ambicious personal project: I want to emulate what Tolkien did with his Lord of the Rings universe, on a smaller scale of course, since I'm not a very proficient writer. I would take years and years of experience from playing RPGs and MMOs and all the Lore I have experienced gaming since I was a little kid.
But I dream of my grandkids reading what old Papa wrote. ''Wow, did you really do this Pops? It's amazing!". Then, I would feel like I finally left my mark in this world.
Yes, /coolstory, Lair and all, I was feeling kinda emotive today so I wanted to share it with you guys. Thanks for your time :)
