One of the questions I’ve been asked recently (in the spirit of interview season) is: “Where do you see yourself in 5 years?”
Though I am a goal-orientated person, five years seems a long, long, long time away. And if I’m being honest, I had not really contemplated that question until it was first proposed to me. So it got me thinking… and then I decided to write a letter to my future self :).
Mine started off something like this:
Dear future Ames,
If you have followed the instructions, today’s date will be 22 September 2016! You will be 27 years old… my, that’s old! Haha, but only because 22 years old Amy can’t quite imagine being that old yet… it’s all relative really, so don’t worry as we all have to get older each year but as long as you keep dreaming and don’t give up on your dreams, you are still young at heart :).
I then went onto describe what’s happening right now and then what I hoped would be in my life in 5 years time (it might or might not have included a husband and a car and not necessarily in that order – but that’s for 27 years old Ames to find out!).
It’s nice to dream… it’s also nice to have goals… it’s also nice when you have an essay finished which I haven’t so I better get my head out of the clouds and get back to it! :P
You’ll have to keep your eyes on her… she’s a dreamer.
