These are all wishes and fantasies that the self produces out of desire and wanting to be more special. Buddhism of all kinds is about letting go of all that stuff.
It's starting to sound like you're more interested in having an instant path to enlightenment readily available the moment you're done thrill-seeking. You're a kid, so go ahead and be a kid. You will learn many important things that way. When bodhichitta seems more important than instant enlightenment alone, then get serious about Buddhism.
Lama Zopa Rinpoche wrote a book called How To Practice Dharma about the eight worldly dharmas: gain/loss; pleasure/pain; praise/blame; fame/shame.
Lama Zopa Rinpoche wrote:The basic message of Buddhism is renunciation of the thought of the eight worldly dharmas, the mind grasping at the four desirable objects and rejecting the four undesirable objects. The thought of the eight worldly dharmas is a mind solely concerned with the happiness of this life, and any action done with this motivation, even if it is meditating or praying, becomes nonvirtue, the cause of suffering. This is the very first thing we need to understand when we study Dharma, the very first thing we need to wake up to.
Not following desire is practicing Dharma; following desire is not practicing Dharma. It is as simple as that. Because the mind is a dependent arising, which means that it exists in dependence upon causes and conditions, our mind can be transformed in any way we choose.
