Before you read my post, have you seen my guest post over on MamaPop, where I talk about Calvin Klein and pose for scantily clad photos?

What is something I hope to do in my life?
I have many aspirations and goals in my life. I’d like to retire, to earn a million dollars, to have a family, to learn how to sing, learn how to dance, own my own movie theater, produce a movie, write a book, write a comic book, reach my goal weight, meet a President, travel the world, do stand-up comedy, outlive Lindsay Lohan, appear on TV, meet a personal hero, mentor, teach, fly, have super-speed, and many more. But all of these dreams pale in comparison to the one thing I hope to do in my life:
I want to leave my mark.
I understand that over time, everything crumbles. Over millennia, the names of our greatest minds will be lost, from Einstein to Newton to Picasso to Shakespeare. It’s the fact, though, that they have persisted so long, that interests me.
I know I’m not a genius in any sense of the word. Well, except when you look purely at the IQ level sense, but that doesn’t really mean anything. I will never invent something that will revolutionize society or write the novel of my generation.
But maybe, just maybe, I can still make a mark that will last well beyond my death. (Unless I can figure out this whole immortality thing.) Maybe my words will make people laugh for many years. Maybe my lack of shame will keep the “Avitable” name on the lips of future generations.
All I know is what I know how to do, so I will continue to do that for as long as I can, as well as I can, and hope that someday, someone else will look back and remember it.
