Me? I hope that I will have a longer summer vacation, but I have more than 13 days left before I have to go back to work on campus. How I miss staying home without going back to work. I want to rest for a longer time. So what is your greatest desire at present, please?

My greatest desire at this moment is to find a nice guy who will genuinely love me for me and get married. I would be a good wife too! (smile)

May this wish of yours be fully fulfilled soon, dear Sharon. Pay more attention to the people working around you, who are nice and kind and choose one who is still single and available and develop the feeling between you. I am sure that it won't be long before he comes to your life. Good luck and all the best, dear Sharon.

Yeah, it is much more convenient to have a laptop and a digital camera. Though they are expensive desires, they are getting much cheaper in price in the market here in China. Many people who love fashion have their own digital camera and laptop. I hope that this wish of yours will be realized soon.

To make money and make it fast on the net so that I quit my job and simply be a work at home man doing things at my own pace and being my own boss!

Sometimes I have the same idea like yours. It would be nice if we could make as much as we make in our real job. This way we can enjoy much more freedom and flexible time. We can work online and take care of our household chores in between. Thanks for your nice idea and response. I wish your dream would come true soon, academic friend.

To have lots of money. No don't get me wrong, I'm not in it for greed. I'm in it because I have seen how many family members and loved ones are trapped in financial dilemma. I want to somehow do something for them for once, especially my parents. They have loads of loans and credit card bills and I want to help out. Plus, my partner is very much into financial trouble as well. I need to earn more to at least help him out. This is the main reason why I'm doing myLot plus a lot of other things too. But sad to say, money-making opportunities don't come by often. That's why I just do my best to do what I can. So that's it, my greatest desire at present is to earn. =)

Who wouldn't be attracted to something that gives additional earnings? I mean, if it's just for fun, there are a lot more other forums with more people to talk to and more topics. *LOL* Plus, I'm coping to type in English here, while other sites or forums could allow my Dialect. Plus, there isn't a required number of minimum number of sentences. *LOL* Yeah, I guess it's for the money here. But sooner or later, you come to realize it's fun too. But definitely no one stays for the sake of staying. It's all for the money. =)

I am living in a tropical country and most of the time the weather here is quite hot. I hope I could get a house which is situated at the foot hill where the air there is cool and fresh. The environment is peaceful and natural. I could also visit the stream and even swim in it often. I used to visit the place occasionally as it is quite far away from my house. If I were to build a house there then I don't have to spend much time for traveling.

I hope that your wish to have a house of yours located at the foot of the hill come true. It is really wonderful to choose to live at such a place where you can enjoy much from the flowing clear stream and swimming in it with the natural beauty before you. I also love a house in the country where I can enjoy the coolness in the hot summer.

Hi jisir, thanks for appreciating my dreamed house. Luckily the peaceful and beautiful place where my dreamed house located is still not under any development. I don’t think my dream will not be accomplished as I always spend most of the money earned for travelling. Thanks for giving me such a pleasure for getting a best response from you. Cheers!

Hello, ataywithpin, if you really want to be a teacher, come to work in China. There are many posts and chances for native English speakers to be engaged in English teaching. I hope that this dream of both yours and your wife's will come true.

I have some friends working at Shanghai as an Enlish teacher. That's a good job as he doesn't have to get some professional skills. He is very humor and has a lots of students there. If a guy in USA can't find job here, I will suggest him to go to China, there are more chances there as long as you can speed the navtive language, english. If I go there, I'd like to contact you, friend.

Yes, please. I would like to offer help if you contact me but it is always better to let me know earlier so that we can make a plan for having native English speakers as a spoken English teacher in our school. Detailed information about your resume will be needed later once you have made up your mind to apply for a teaching job in China.

My present greatest desire are, getting a brand new car and a pretty, kind girl friend LoL. But the car are considered a luxurious expense and I feel hesitated to get one at this moment. It's because car value depreciate greatly over time. I am thinking of getting a girl friend because I am still haven't got one since my ex left me almost a year before.

Yeah, the price of cars is going down day by day. It is better to get one when the price is low enough. Besides the oil is expensive. It costs a lot to possess a car of your own. It is more practical to have a very loving good girlfriend to get married to to build a family of your own. Be blessed, friend.

Actually I am owning a car now. It's just a 660cc compact car. The fuel consumption is low but it had been 10 years since my parents bought it for me as my transport in my University. It had been very reliable and durable. But it's getting old but I still like it very much. Thanks for your wishes. :)

Since you still like your own old car, just use it till it is needed for a new one. My laptop is also very old. It is six years old. Though it works slowly in the afternoon and evening, I still like it. I plan to buy one when it has to get retired. Or if possible, I will get a new one in two years' time.

May your wish to get a Nokia 6120 come true. By the way you can do some part-time job to earn some extra money to get one to fulfil your dream. Question: Do you teach on campus? Answer: Only when I work, I have to live and work on campus, not during the long summer and winter vacation because all of the teachers are back home during the long holidays.

Nowadays it is easy to travel abroad if you have all the formalities fixed and of course you need to prepare a lot of money for travelling, which is really a good amount of money. I also have the desire to visit some of the southeastern countries as I think that it is closer to my country--China. I hope that this wish of yours will be realized soon. You know it is a matter of time, right, dear secretbear? Wish you good luck, dear friend.

Do desires really end? If I wanted a million bucks sometime ago, it would now be a 100 million or a billion. If I had home with 5 rooms, then I'd want a bigger one with maybe ten, or a castle or a palace. At present, it's almost 11,00 pm, so I'd like to sleep. So Good night or whatever is the appropriate greeting for the time zone that a reader of my response is from.

Improve myself in several areas, especially employment. I'm honing my talents too so that can help. I also want to improve my self in all of my interests and strengths as much as I can. Other than that, I would be lying if I didn't say I had a desire for positive attention from the opposite gender.
