  • A lot has changed since 1989,

    I was 7 years old, and my biggest dream was about to be fulfilled I was going to meet Mickey Mouse. It's a weird thing achieving your life's goal at 7 years old, but I did.

    The only problem was once I had achieved this goal there probably wasn't more than 8 hours of "life fulfilment" before my new goal in life was to do something else, I unfortunately think that goal was to become Michael Jackson. Needless to say I am glad I never got even remotely close to that goal!

    The thing that actually gets to me, is that when I met Mickey Mouse he was wandering around DisneyLand doing his thing and trying to twist my head of if the picture is anything to go by, but to meet him now you have to queue for hours to have a photo taken within 20 seconds.

    It's becoming harder to fulfil even the simplest of my 7 year old selfs dreams, how hard are the ones of my 28 year old self going to be?
