I was asked this last night by a friend and I really couldn't provide an answer on the spot and I couldn't stop thinking about it when I got home last night.

I would hopefully see myself with a secure job and maybe in a relationship? I no longer want to get in a relationship until I'm financially secure and have a decent enough job and completed University. I'm desperate to have a child so who knows we could have Baba Wall when I'm 26.... which is old these days, right?

Oh blimey, scary thinking about being 18 in a couple of months, let alone 22! Well my dad was 22 when he had me but I definitely do not see the same happening. Uni will have finished by then I think so I'd like to hope that it all went well and the road to a journalism career isn't a complete disaster.

A kid at 26 seems pretty old these days, but mt child ain't arriving till I am at least 30.

In 5 years time I'll hopefully have moved to Gent for the final years of my uni life. Fingers crossed I'll actually make it that far.

Relationshipwise I can see myself being in a longterm relationship, as I feel like I am ready for that, (whereas a year ago I chickened out of one, so there is some sort of improvement), altho I still have small difficulties opening up. Idk tho I could still be rocking ha single life, getting mortal on a near weekly basis.

It's a popular interview question that I always have a minor heart attack before coming up with some bullshit response to.

I feel a bit grown up right now though as I have a 5 year plan that I'm now 2 years into. I have one more year until I become a chartered accountant and then I spend the next two years readying my cv and finances to emigrate.

I dread having to inevitably answer this in interviews. Career-wise I'd want to be financially secure in 5 years. Relationship-wise I'd want to HAVE one but who knows. The future's very far from set for me so when thinking about this, it could nearly end up any way I'd want it to, but the most important thing would be that I'm happy.

I'll be JUST SHY of gay death (the big 3-0) so I guess I'd like to have myself in a secure job (already basically have that) and probably living in London, or at least out of Northern Ireland. I'm not really fussed on a relationship because I actually enjoy being my own person far too much to compromise again, but obviously if someone came along then I'm not going to say NO. I'd say 30 is still too young to think about children, but I'd say within 10 years I'd definitely like to have one.

I hate being asked this question.

Reminds me of a scene from good ol' Friends.

Monica: Phoebe, do you have a plan?
Phoebe: I don't even have a "pla".

That's sorta how I feel. I have always had huge difficulty putting my life into perspective. I have just finished a course and might be starting another one in September, but beyond that I'm a bit lost. Well, actually I have ideas about what I'd like to do, but something's holding me back. I would love to experiment with music properly and do performance art and stuff, but my music skills are really not where I would like them to be. Also I'm not sure about being able to go on stage. I've been on stage in plays and choirs, but that was a long time ago and I don't know if I could actually present my own stuff on stage. I make music a little bit on the computer but I tend to get frustrated and it often goes nowhere. I'm probably better at lyrics. I might just need practice at the music thing, but I'm lazy with it.

I know I would like to be in a relationship as soon as possible. I have even joined a dating website, but it's not really going anywhere at the moment.

I already hate this thread because 26 is apparently old. That's what I am now. I shall be 31 in 5. I'd like to own my own house and get a promotion at work or perhaps switch schools if I begin to tire of this one. I guess I'd like to be at least in a relationship too since I'd like children one day and apparently I'm already over the hill for that sort of thing.

I don't allow myself to think of such stuff - if I make plans and build up expectations, I'll get disappointed.

never had a plan, bit late now. Or at least I had dreams till life sucked them out of me, destroyed all hope and optimism and left me a hollow battered cynical shell.

Still gotta laugh, eh? laugh.gif

Seriously, go for kids, be happy, stay fit, it'll all be over before you know it, enjoy the trip it'll be both fab and awful, a happy life is where the fab outweighs the awful.

This really. Life throws up so many obstacles. I genuinely have no idea, if there's anything 2015 has taught me it's you've gotta take the rough with the smooth. Life is full of highs and lows, and you really have just got to try and outweigh the lows.

This is exactly what 2014 taught me. I had a pretty rough year last year but I truly learned that yes, there are always negatives, but there are always so many positives as well, just have to find them and cherish them.

I don't know where I see myself in a few MONTHS let alone years lmao. In uni I guess unless my exams go totally wrong but the idea of going to uni just terrifies me, something I have literally no experience of and I'll be living on my own etc. argh.

All I ask is to be financially secure in a job that I enjoy, living in my own place and still have friends and family by my side. Everything else I will take as it comes, life's too unpredictable to have a detailed plan. I really don't even know what I'll be doing in a matter of months, I'm just at that stage now where there's no more delaying from going into the real world, eek.

uni. is. fab. I went cacking myself with fear, and anxiety, and it was a total dream of 3 years, more or less. Just do everything you can to socialise from day one and it's a positive experience of shared joy, fun, wonder, learning, experimenting with ideas, dancing, arts.

OK you get assignments and exams, but hey the internet is there to help these days yahoo.gif

It can be pretty scary, but most other people will be in the same boat. Those of us "of an older generation" didn't even have a mobile or the internet to keep in touch with family and old school friends. If you do a "geeky" subject (I did Mathematics & Computer Science at a time when most people had no experience of computers), you need to demonstrate that there is a lot more to you than your chosen subject.
