where are you going to be? as in probably, not ideally.
it's one of those stupid where predictably will you be questions, only made a bit less stupid because it's about where you may actually be rather than where will you be in your dreams. think about it, john.
(i found this old letter from freshman year of high school that we had to write to ourselves about where we hoped to be and then it was sent to us senior year. i hate those things.)
I just have no clue, i suppose you base it on what other people who are similar to you but older end up doing, but i can't think of who that'll be. I'm guessing either i'll end up like my dad so starting a family in early thirties but if that's the case then i'd need something to replace all the time he spends doing church stuff, maybe drinking? Or i'll slowly withdraw from the world and get massively fat or hoard rubbish or something.
where are you going to be in 20 years alley?
still in an apartment, preferably in a coastal city but maybe still in the midwest, unattached and hopefully working
/somewhere very rural. I'll outburn myself with City life and become a pie-baking country-bumpkin.
And probably go slightly mental.
hopefully watching a different TV.
Most likely still without a job, and on my own.
But probably living a complacently middle-class life in a leafy area of London somewhere.
helping to herd the reindeer. realistically reading, working in an office
omg I love you.
wanna make out?
think i'll get a low 2:1 from uni, kid myself I can be a writer/musician for as many years as possible whilst pursuing romance, eventually having to get a proper job then at the age of 40 moving to Dunbar, the greatest and most beautiful place on earth
I lived there when I was 5-8 then went back there yesterday and discovered it to be my favourite place on earth. And micheal greco apparently was connected to Grecos, the best cafe in Dunbar which, to my dismay, I discovered was presumably in the process of closing down.
I'll know I've taken life too slowly.
There's no particular place I can see myself wanting to live in long-term/settle down in, as I grew up in teh forin landz, and so have no sort of fixed "home country" I want to live in. No idea where I'll be in twenty years time.
I doubt I'll ever find out where it is but it looks amazingly beautiful
and a council flat? Probably? I don't know. I can't see me ever getting anywhere in terms of a career. Definitely not in terms of a "relationship".
Probably here. I really don't know where I could move to, so....
though location can count as a part of that, folks.
I don't think I'd want to raise children with everyone else. I've already got their entire lives from 0 - 18 years completely planned out. Having someone else would compromise that.
I have no idea what you're talking about.
Dead, or in jail
Not my fault on both counts
But really, I have no idea, people are welcome to plot my career/ life
you will become a famous TV doctor, dispensing information spanning the entire spectrum of public inquiry, from the foolish to the nerdy, until your tragically premature death (murder by dissatisfied studio audience member).
is a premature death ever not tragic? duh
Thats wayyy to much pressure!
Also, I could be a right bastard, thus my premature death a relief to some
I'm not very sure at all, I don't really know where I will be and what I will be doing next year let alone in 20.
Living somewhere nice and in a good stable relationship doing a job thats worth while and far to many records sounds pretty realistic for the most part.... maybe not the stable relationship bit do they exist?
me and my sister joke about my early demise at least once a week... 17 years tops; then i'll be 40 or more than likely; dead.
married to a low ranking professional i don't really love, working in a supermarket to keep me from going insane, worried that any day soon my children will realise what an awful mother i am and flee the family home.
i can't wait to have kids
and i'll probably be having an affair with the postman or the handsome under his glasses man who works at the local library.
but if i'm unhappy in the way i anticipate, it's the kind of thing i'd end up doing.
just don't move to the midlands. simple.
do you also want to herd reindeer?
Not the United States, necessarily. Maybe some small fishing village on the Gulf coast.
That, or living somewhere in sub-Saharan Africa, most likely South Africa or Botswana.
asking people where they will be in twenty years time.
hopefully y'know, house in the burbs, loving wife and a couple of kids, comfortable job and all that. i don't know. :(
