5 Years From Now


          One thing I hate more than elevators is uncertainty, and that is what the future is: uncertain.  I have no idea what my future holds for me or where I'll be.  I don't even know where I want to be in 5 minutes let alone 5 years.  I was actually planning on just skipping this week, but I decided that looking into the future for even a moment could be very intriguing.  So, here it goes...

In 5 years I hope...

TO HAVE GRADUATED


I'm not for sure how long it's going to take for me to graduate, but the ideal year would be 2016.  The only reason this would actually be an issue is if I continue to change my area of study.  I'm pretty hard-set on Communications, though.  My only issue would be the accompanying major or minor.

TO BE ON A SUCCESSFUL CAREER PATH


Even though I know my area of study, I still have no idea what career I want to pursue.  It seems like my dream job changes on a daily basis.  Sometimes I want to be a publicist, and other times I want to be a book editor.  It really just depends on my mood for the day.  Even though I know that my career will involve some type of public speaking aspect; I don't know the exact area I want.  I'm hoping to have a better idea in the near future, but I'm currently just taking every opportunity that comes my way.

TO HAVE MY ANXIETY AND PANIC ATTACKS CONTROLLED


My anxiety is something that I've wanted to control for years.  I've always been something of a worry wart, and it's starting to really bother me.  Even little things throw me into a nervous wreck that I almost can't function.  This blog is one thing that has helped keep my anxiety at bay, but I'm honestly scared for when school starts.  Homework, projects, and tests can make anyone nervous.  I hope that one day I can look at deadline and not freak out.

TO BE ABLE TO CONFRONT PEOPLE


One issue that I just recently became concious of is my confrontation problem.  I honestly hate going up to people face-to-face (or even over the phone) and telling them what I think.  I'd like to give our society today for that issue.  This is something I didn't even know about until I met with my school counselor.  I plan to continue working with him on this, and hopefully improve it.  I need to realize that my opinions and thoughts are just as important as other people.  As you can see, this is easier said than done.

TO BE THE REAL ME


I wouldn't want to be anyone else...

  2. Hey Lizzy,
    So, many of my goals for the next five years are the same as your (must be a college student thing). I want to have graduated by 2016 as well but I'm not sure that will actually happen.
