Okay, what are you trying to do with the next 5 years of your life?
For the next 4, college shit, and if I end up pursuing business like I am planning on, hopefully I'll have a lot of experience from internships by the time I graduate, and in a perfect world, I'll be able to hop on the marketing team at a videogame studio in Seattle.


I'm majoring in Bio right now. I am going to be working at a regional medical center near me over this summer and hopefully work myself up to work involving direct patient contact over the next 3 summers. Hopefully I will get at least a 3.5 undergrad GPA (though I'm shooting for a 3.8) and get lots of health care experience. Then some time after graduation I'm going to apply to PA school. I want to be a PA working  in either pediatrics, or neonatology in a hospital.


I will hopefully be graduating from a 4 year university in the next 5 years with a degree in biology. I will get some internships preferably in zoos so that I can get job experience and have an easier time finding work. By this point I am hope to be living on my own or with a roommate in an apartment.

First, graduating from BSU with a BFA in Creative/Professional Writing. Then, moving to Texas, starting my life with Henny, and from there I'm not sure of what order things will fall in, but here's the idea: get a job, whatever works at first to at least pay the bills but ideally something in publishing or something, and in the meantime, decide where to go for a possible master's program in writing at another school, and in addition, perhaps do a little more schooling to get a teacher's license

and of course, during all that, be writing and sending things off and hopefully making some extra money that way

I was expecting the reply to that post to have something that relates to Kaz in it. girl;

But I was more of waiting for one of his, 'Gee, I didn't expect that from you.' comments.  n_u


I have no ideas what I want from life at the moment so my only real goals involve not being seen as a failure by my parents girl;

I think this underlies everything that just about every does.

Well I have the balls to say it out loud badass


I really don't know, and it's been bugging the piss out of me lately. Right now I don't really have a direction in my life; I just lay around and watch TV, play video games, and post on Internet forums. I don't feel like I'm accomplishing anything. I'm going back to school in the fall but any progress there seems so far off that it doesn't do anything to comfort me.

what if something happened and you and hensa broke up? you seem very dependent upon her, seems like a problem to me.

if that were to happen, then i'd do everything else i posted, but probably do it in california instead

however, it's pretty doubtful at this point that we'd ever break up, considering we've been together almost 5 years and have plans to marry


Next semester I'm starting classes at community college, and I've already enrolled as a full time student. I plan on getting an AA degree in psychology and then transferring to a four year school, which hopefully will happen the same time Anya is going to college (in 2 years), and, assuming we're still together, we'd go to school together. From there, I don't know quite what will happen. If things continue to be steady with Anya we might travel together and settle down somewhere and I'll open up a clinic and work as a shrink or something, but it's honestly way too early to tell.

I think I have the groundwork laid out for me to live a satisfying, successful life, but the future still freaks me out, and I've never been sure exactly where I want to end up.


Perfectionism and self-destructiveness will be the end of me in the next 3 years.  bassir;

Anyways, perhaps over the summer I may re-locate myself (Though, such decision requires special planning--will I be able to continue my education in my terrible community college, or can I just transfer myself out after the first semester and go to another school that's in my new area? How and who would I go to, to speak of transferring credits from my eclep scores? If I get that straighten out, then I will definitely move out from here.)

If I keep my decision, then I will cut off all of my friends that I've ever made (Except, for two. They're too much of a rarity to give up) and restart my life without any support, as my parents are leaving out of the country and I will not have anyone to rely on for support.  :3 My grandparents from both sides are leaving with them, so I will not have any family (This is incredibly dangerous, I start off with nothing nor would I have a place to fall back on, but I'm confident that my teacher who has taken me into their home will provide that--unless they succumb to terminal illness. If that happens, then I'm done for, unless perhaps, I go to my alternatives that don't seem that bad, but they sure will give me a bad image if I spoke of it.)

For schooling, I'm planning to major something in ethics or biology/medicine. None of them seem like a job I might pursue in, but they're incredibly interesting. I have no plans for a job, I refuse to partake in a career where I'm not allowed to fully "express" myself through my work. Some jobs I may like should include some form of healing occurring for individual, or for groups of people--healing done through the mind/spirit, or through physiological means (Although, I plan to combine both the mind and body to make this process easier)

The shitty thing is that I also want to pursue a career in animation, cinematography and design. I'm not sure how to pursue such different desires in education. Artistic classes are usually done in schools of Art, and I certainly won't find a class of bioethics or microbiology in an Art School.  akudood;
