In 5 Years Time…

So, I am fast approaching 22 years of existence (in 2 days time to be exact!) and this time of year always prompts me to look back on the year and what I’ve accomplished. I’ve always loved New Year’s Eve and the possibilities a new year brings to everyone, but I much prefer birthdays because it’s the start of a new year for me personally. Today, I thought I would do a little ‘In 5 Years Time…’ post for all the things I would like to accomplish/ where I see myself in the coming years.

In 5 Years’ Time…

The year will be 2024 and I will be 27 years old 😱 I’m hoping by then I might have accomplished some of the following…

  • Own my own house/be on my way to buying a house –  It has always been a dream of mine to buy a house. I just feel it would be such an achievement to own my own property. It’s going to take a while so I imagine this will happen more towards the end of the 5 years (if within 5 years at all!)
  • Have a career I’ve had many different career aspirations over the years; Theatre Technician/Stage Manager, Midwife, Writer, etc. My problem is, I like to keep my options open and explore lots of different routes, and sometimes, I just get bored! This wasn’t the case with Midwifery or Writing , I started my Healthcare training but had a really big setback in my personal life which meant I couldn’t continue in my studies (it just wasn’t do-able at the time) I did manage to complete the first year of study though so I still gained some qualifications, I just wasn’t able to complete the 2nd year of the course unfortunately. In terms of my writing, I have been trying to write a novel for around 3 years now but I’m just too critical of my own work and so I’ve never even been able to write a single chapter. I think my problem is that I’ve always been a bit of a dreamer and the career aspirations I tend to have are never the easiest of career’s to get into! My dream career would either be to finally write a book and get my writing career off the ground which is why I started my blog in the first place really, just to get the creative juices flowing! Or, become a full-time blogger! I want to make 22 a really good year for my motivation & creativity and, If I can accomplish this, I really do feel like I can achieve quite a lot in the next year career-wise.
    In terms of Midwifery, my mind does still wander back to this from time to time, so maybe I’ll look into it again in the future? Who knows?
  • My blog will have ‘taken off’ this sort of comes hand in hand with my writing career goal. I would love for in 5 years time to have built up a healthy following on my blog. I’m not expecting to have millions of followers or anything like that, but I would love to be able to reach a wider audience on my blog in the next few years 🙂
  • Kids This is another item for the far end of my 5-year scale, perhaps even past the 5 years, but I would love to start a family at some point in the future depending on where life takes me career-wise! Before kids though…
  • Travel I would love to see the places that are on my Bucket List. This includes Paris, Amsterdam, Rome, Venice, and New-York as well as a smattering of other destinations! I would love to be able to tick off a few, if not all of these places by the time I’m 30. If not, there’s plenty of time, although I live consciously aware that tomorrow is promised to nobody and that you should live life doing things that you want to do! I would also really like to have been to DisneyWorld a few more times within the next 5 years 😊 paris
  • Buy myself a nice car Another dream of mine has always been to have a nice car. I’m not massively into cars and I’m not a show-off by any means (I’m actually quite the introvert!) but I would just really like to have a nice-looking car that is reliable! In the past, I have had: 2 Ford KA’s and I currently have a Kia Picanto (which is by far the best car I’ve had!) but my dream car would be a Black Mini ‘One’ or Mini Convertable. I hope that with enough saving, I might have bought myself my dream car in the next 5 years 🙂
  • Get Engaged?I have been in a serious relationship now for more than the standard amount of time couples are usually together before getting engaged. (I know what you’re thinking, I’m a delight what’s taking him so long?) 😉 In all seriousness, I’m in no rush, we’ll just have to wait and see!

By this time next year…

In a years’ time, I will be almost 23. Here are some of the things I hope I might have accomplished by then…

  • Blog – I hope by next year I will have started to grow a little more of a following on my blog 😊
  • Writing – I want to have written at least a few chapters of my first book (if not, all of it!) by next year 🤞🏻
  • Travel – I already have some exciting plans for Summer this year but I’m hoping I get the chance to do a little bit more travelling in the coming year and potentially tick some items off my bucket list!

I’m not going to get my hopes up with any of the above as I know only time will tell what happens, but I hope that I manage to achieve something great in the next few years, I’ve got a good feeling about it at the moment, I suppose we’ll just wait and see…

So come on 22, I’m ready for ya!
