The most annoying phrase in the world is...

Follow your dreams.

How am I supposed to follow my dreams if I have no idea what they are?

Really - I'm not kidding. My dreams all tend to be rather vaccuous things, like
  • losing weight
  • getting married
  • having a country house
  • being a celebrity in some unknown field with a minimum of effort
Nothing I can really get worked up about. Nothing I want so bad that I'm actually willing to do the work to achieve them.

This is why I love lost comedian Mitch Hedburg: "I'm sick of following my dreams... I'm just gonna ask where they're going and hook up with them later."

I agree...I am tired of following them too...they change directions and disappear so often that as soon as I am sure that I am following them ok...the road diverges, and I need to figure out which turn they took.... :(
