It's your 21 year old self here writing this on a Saturday night (yep, you know how to live) and I thought to keep with tradition of my last post of talking to myself, I decided to write to you. Whether you reply or not is another matter...
Just like the last time I want to go through a few things where I hope that we will be in 5 years time (obviously it's not the end of the world if we haven't BUT it'll be a bit of fun).
1. Be settled in your career
Sitting here now as an unemployed, undergraduate student the future is filled with possibilities. I have no idea how the most stressful few weeks of my life are going to go (please enlighten me) and where we will be heading after life in Lincoln. I'm currently interested in the world of social media and video production, so it will be interesting to see where we are when you next read this. Or we might do a complete 180 and become a radio DJ that 13 year old you wanted to be!
2. Have your own home
I don't think this one is too outrageous BUT with the current cost of house prices, I won't be shocked if you're still in your fuchsia floored room with mum and dad. If we do have our own home, fantastic! I hope we have flown the nest by then and got out of mum and dad's hair for a bit and I'm intrigued to see how we're coping living fully on our own (I won't count university halls or houses).
3. Still settled down?
We ticked off one box from last time by finally settled down (thank you, Andrew for taking one for 16 year old me) so I'd like to think that we have continued on our madness together.
4. Have seen a *tiny* bit more of the world
I'm itching to get back out into the world again to see a bit more of it. I'm hoping that we have ticked off our bucket list location of Australia in this time (because I'm hoping we have become a "proper adult" and earned some pennies to get us over there. Or did we ever venture across to Japan? Anywhere we've been I'd be intrigued to know about.
5. I hope you're still as happy as you are now
Yes times are tough and life can be pretty sh*tty but I hope we have continued our mantra of "everything happens for a reason" and taken each day as it comes. I hope that we continue to say yes to a number of different opportunities that have been thrown our way over the last 5 years and I hope that we are still in a fantastic place. And even if we aren't everything will be brighter in the morning, as Morecambe & Wise would once sing "when you feel down, try positive thinking..."
Speak to you soon,
See you in the next blog post,
