Once upon a time I had a dream that I will become a doctor and I was very happy about my dream, and always become something which is very good like dreaming my future what I will be.
And when I compared when I was young and now the when I dream is better because when I was young I only dream that fanner thing but now my dream is ????
Once upon at night I also dream that I will be a millionaire and the best of all I had my dream that later your money will be taken by robbers and you become the worst man in the world and the life will be hard to mouth???
I have dreamed a lot of dreams but this is the dream I have suspected if in my life will it be possible or not. A wonderful dream that I have dreamed.
