Call it lame, call it silly, i don't care. The only thing that drives me to simply not vegetate in my room and becomes a useless bum is the hope that one day, something really horrible happens. aliens take over, nuclear war, a megalomaniac with some unreal superpower starts destroying the world, whatever. When that happens, I wanna be the one to step forward and do something about it, not exactly save the day, but be the driving force behind it.
I guess you could say I wanna be a hero, and as long as I am alive, it can happen...goddamnit it can happen.
There are plenty of horrible things happening right now. Ailens don't need to invade for you to be a hero.
