I’ve been nominated for the Future Challenge which is exciting!! (:
Here’s the rules:
Thank the bloggers who nominated you. Thank you Confused Apple!!
Link back to the challenge creator, Dreams and Movie Screens so she can track your progress.
Share 5 things about your future (jobs, kids, marriage, travel etc). Then one day you can look back and find out how psychic you really are.
I’ll be a consultant working for an international consultancy firm: After high school, I plan to pursue my interests in economics and maybe do economics and international business, or politics, philosophy and economics, or combined law and economics. I want to major in economics and become a consultant by doing my undergraduate studies here in Sydney, and if given the opportunity, go overseas to Oxford or LSE to pursue further education. My aspirations lie in working internationally, travelling a lot with my job and changing the world through economic and business means to make our world a better place to live in.
I’ll be married with kids: I’m a hopeless romantic. I’m waiting for the day that my modern day prince charming comes and sweeps me off my feet. I know a guy who is essentially everything I want in a future hubby or boyfriend so lets see where the future takes us! Maybe I’ll be with him. Maybe I’ll get swept off my feet by a charming and charismatic British man. Who knows. I’d love to also have kids. Whether through giving birth or adopting. I was brought up in a loving and caring household, and my mum is more than just a nurturer, lover and protector. She’s truly a hero for me. I want to be the same person for my children. I want to impart the same wisdom my mum imparted on me.
I’ll have lived in a new country for over 2 months: Either through university or travel, I want to live and work somewhere apart from Sydney. I love Sydney. Sydney is life. It’s love. But I want to experience the excitement and reality of needing to live by yourself, without the guidance of my parents. Independence is key to succeeding I think. I’m independent, but not enough. I still love coming home to my bed and mum and dad and the comforts that home is. I want to be able to also experience living by myself in an unfamiliar place so I can meet new people and create new memories.
I will have learnt to let my guard down: This is a personal one for me. I tend to bottle my hurt or pain up and let it age in my mind. It has impacted me negatively and it isn’t something I want to experience ever again. I promised myself at the start of 2015 that I’d make a change. I’ve made a conscious decision to open up to my friends and family more, but in the future, I want to have the confidence of trusting and having faith in more people.
I’ll have a strong friendship with someone who lives on the other side of the planet: I remember in primary school, we had pen pals from a connecting school in Singapore. That was pretty fun, but I lost contact with mine. I want to make friends with someone who lives in a different country, and really solidify that friendship, so we can visit each other if we go to each other’s countries and kind of become like siblings from different sides of the planet. Its a childish aspiration, but it’d be so much fun. I know a lot of people who’ve maintained friendships internationally, and I’d love to have one just like that.
