I've been tagged, by the wonderful Oughtasay, to answer that specific question.
Where do I see myself in 10 years ?
Ten years from now, I'll be 34 y/o.. soon to be 35.
That is such a scary thought for me right now. I don't even know where I see myself in 2 weeks. Honestly, there are SO many uncertainties in my life right now that I can only project where I want to be .. whether or not it's actually realistic, is another question.
First and foremost, I want to have a job that makes me happy. I'd like to be a successful lawyer who still has time for her friends and family. I'd like to be working in the Work Relations department, for either an important worker's union or a big company. Oh, and I'd like to look damn hot doing it, yes, please and thank you!
Also, I'd like to be in a fun, loving and commited relationship. Hopefully, I will be with someone who brings out the best in me and always pushes me to achieve more (whether it be at work, or getting in shape, etc.). I want to make that person really happy and always keep them interested and challenged.
As for the material things, I'd love to own a condo or a house in one of my favorite neighborhoods of the City. Someplace near all the beautiful little markets and coffeeshops. Maybe drive a bmw 'cuz I've always had a thing for beemers. I'd like to have one (or more) dogs, to give them a fun life with lots of exercise !
When it comes to children, it will simply depend on where my relationship is at. Obviously, I don't think I would be ready to have children with someone I haven't known for a long time. I could see myself starting to pop babies when I'm around 30 y/o .. so maybe one to two kids by the time I'm 35. But it's not a race .. all in good time :o)
I'd love to be close to my girlfriends. I know Violet and I always joke about living close-by and sipping on gin tonics while our kids have a playdate.. so we'll see what the future holds. That'd be nice !
