    Are you now where you thought you would be 5years ago? If not what stopped you getting there and has it gone better or worse than you thought it would?

    Looking ahead, where do you think you’ll be in 5years from now? (Realistically barring winning the lotto or getting hit by a bus)

    Does where you’re headed scare, worry, excite or bore you? Would you change it if you could and why can’t/don’t you?

    Dude, you're getting old.

    In all seriousness, I'm from the generation that doesn't think about the past and the future. Sometimes it worries me how little I care about my long term goals but then I just turn on the TV and watch The Simpsons. I soon stop worrying. Unfortunately, I don't think I'm unique in this way of thinking.

    I'll be 35 then, and staring 40 full in the face. I'd rather not entertain such thoughts, thanks all the same. :eek:

    South Mississippi y'all, near the water!
    I've had four jobs in the past five years. I was successful in all of them, but bored and unchallenged. I'm back in school and will complete an MA in Teaching this fall. I've always wanted to teach jr or sr high school.

    In five years, I hope to be away from this town in my fifth year of teaching!

    Its not so much where you are as when you are.
    Hmm. 5 years ago I was just finishing up radiation treatment.

    5 years from now I will probably be finding a cancer caused by the treatments.

    Eat drink and be merry, for tomorrow you die.
