lewa and darkmiz have the best goals also history shows that they come together
when I started this game all I cared about was having fun and just wanted to play fun maps. when checking the mappers who made them I saw that (almost) all of the mappers who make the most fun maps are also very good players themselves, so this kinda motivated me to improve - because I also want to make fun maps and contribute my own part to osu's fun map pool. the final goal is to become a famous mapper and see people hosting my maps in random multiplayer room woooo gonna take forever with how ranking works in this game
I normally just make very short term goals so I have something to aim for that session. The closest to a long term goal is to get the two Dedication achievements I don't have... which will eventually just happen, but it does mean that I have been playing more Taiko lately to keep building up those hits.
