So, many people I know have a life-plan, be it for five years or even going as far as ten years!
Now, I’m one to live in the present and just go with each day as it comes, though I do like to plan nights out for maybe the next week coming out – But that’s usually as far as I would go.
If I WAS to do a ten year plan though, I’ve had a little think about it and this is how it would go:
In one year – be coming to the end of my second year at university and hopefully be doing some placement work.
In two years – Finishing my third year at university and hopefully be planning a get-away holiday until graduation.
In three years – I’d hope to actually have a job by now, but I doubt it for reasons that will follow in the next few years. I am however, thinking of doing a masters degree – but that all depends upon if I can deal with an extra year or two of education really.
In four years – I’d love to move somewhere for 3 – 6 months just to get away from England for a while, maybe Canada, or even somewhere like Germany – I LOVE the German language – so aggressive!
In five years – I’d be 24 … I would love to actually have a job by now. My aim is to be an English Literature teacher in a high school – Preferably year 9 or 10 students.
In six years – 25 years old, I’d like to think I’d have a decent boyfriend who maybe I’ve been with for a good few months now and living in my own apartment or house.
In seven years – I’d like to (in between work, if I have a job, in the summer holidays) go away to countries I’ve never been, for maybe a month or two – Such as Austrailia or Egypt.
In eight years – 27 years old … I’d love to have a child. As long as me and my partner (who I hopefully have) are happy and in a content place with money and living situations.
In nine years – Engagement/marriage perhaps?
In ten years – Have a happy family, have a good job, nice home and still be in touch with all the friends I made through University, work etc.
I know it’s not a very good ten year plan – but as I said, I’m usually one to live a day as it comes to me – and things are changing ALL of the time! So who knows, eh?
