Scott Price - Final Blog

My future reading and writing goals are not too incredibly wild, but they are pretty well defined. I want to be able to write a short story that is well written and enjoying to read. I have always loved reading science fiction and fantasy books, and although we did not cover anything in those genres this year, I think that the skills that I have learned this year will still help me to achieve that goal.

One book that I have planned to read for a long time now, but have not yet gotten to is 1984 by George Orwell. I have seen this book listed as an inspiration for many of the bands that I enjoy, and I have seen it used as a model of what technology and the growth of big government could lead to. I also enjoyed reading the book Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, which shares several similarities to this book.

The second book that I plan to read in the future is Tom Sawyer. I have already read Huckleberry Finn, and although I know Tom Sawyer comes before that book, I am still interested in reading it. This book is one that i usually see listed as classic American Literature, and I enjoyed the adventureous nature of Huckleberry Finn, so I think that this book would be enjoying to read as well.

My wildest dream for life is probably that I could make something that I am recognized for. I love music and technology, and I plan to keep those two passions close throughout my entire life. I don't plan on making music my primary goal in life, but it is something that I have always enjoyed being a part of. With technology, I hope to someday create something that can improve the world in some way. This goal may sound broad, but that's because I haven't yet figured out exactly what I want to create. It could be a new software, or piece of machinery, or a game or a hardware. Whatever it is, I want to be able to make something that I can feel proud of creating.
