I am currently studying Psychology. In five years, I see myself with my Ph.D., working in a clinic helping others find their way. I hope to begin the process of establishing my own organization for at risk children and teens, providing after-school care and other recreational services so that they can have a head start and understand where they came from and what they want to accomplish. I want to help people work towards their goals despite their personal obstacles.
In the next 5 years I hope to have graduated from the University at Albany and attend graduate school to study education. I hope to be a High School math teacher one day. I would also like to go to cosmetology school on the side because it is something that I really enjoy.
In 5 years I see myself working with disabled children as well as traveling. My personal goal is to visit other countries such as Africa, Thailand, Trinidad, and Brazil and learn about other cultures and traditions as well as getting involved in some social work.
I want to be able to interact with children from other countries and be able to experience what life is like on the other side of the globe.
I've also thought about starting a dance class or a step team, something along the lines of physical fitness so that I can enjoy a hobby and work at the same time.
Where will I be in 5 years?
5 Years from now, I would be in the one of the top medical schools in the United States. I would probably continue to concentrating on Human Biology. I would also be living on my own in my own apartment and being an independent person.
In five years I see myself coming from a long vacation. I would have finished school already and been certified as a teacher. That would be a great accomplishment for me. Even after achieving that goal, there are still other dreams I hope to have lived out by then.
I want to travel to Egypt, and maybe live down south. I want to visit Australia and experience life with the Aborigines. I would like to meet Nelson Mandela and Maya Angelou and Mary Mary. I hope in five years I have done at least two of the three things and met two of my three inspirations.
Overall, I want to have experiences worth writing a book about. In five years I hope to be brave enough to write a book and be fluent enough to share stories in sign language and my family dialects. Coming back from a vacation in one of my dream countries, or even a surprise destination like Greece, I would start getting settled in my teaching job and hopefully with my family close by.
In five years I hope to have added at least ten new ideas to my list; I will always be dreaming of new experience to look forward to. Life is much more exciting when there is a positive daily routine, plus the possibility of accomplishing or living a new dream every day.
Where will you be in five years ?
For one, I will be 25 ( omg yikes) and academically I see myself in my third year of pharmacy school. I could have enrolled in the Pharm.D program after my junior year but due to the advisement of my mentor I have decided to wait after I receive my Bachelors of Science. My career path is a journey not a destination , therefore there is no arrival time. Moreover, in my personal life I envision myself more open to different personas, people and cultures. Not saying that I'm not open to these things now but there is always room for improvement. In the next five years I hope I can reflect and say I have come along way from where I started.
"Where will you be in five years?"
I am not one to look too far into my future. I gave my life in the Hands of God, so only He knows what is in store for me but I "help" by the choices and actions I make and do... In all, I hope that in five years, I am helping people grow and believe in themselves. I hope that I am doing something that relates to the Allied Health field and incorporates the Public Health field.
I hope that in five years, Public Health will be something so familiar to the minds of middle and high school students that it will be a major chosen next to the other popular majors found in college. In five years, I hope that I will be in a state of peace and in firm standing in my life. Actually, I hope for these conditions for everyone. I hope that in five years, I am helping people as much as I hope that I am helping people today. That's where I want to be.
Where do I see myself in five years? To be honest I am not really sure. By that time I should be done with graduate school and have my master's degree. I was hoping in either joining the peace corps or maybe travel for a couple of months before completely dedicating myself to work. I want to have my own place by that time a dog (preferably fron the Akita Inu breed) and a cat because I love the contradiction. :)
Five years from now, I see myself being a young, up-and-coming teacher about to make his mark on the educational landscape. Whether that means taking up some leadership position in a big city, or influencing the lives of students one classroom at a time- it’s too early to say. What I can say is that being a great teacher is what I want to pursue right now and I know the road ahead is shaped with that goal in mind. However, there are other goals that I’d like to meet along the way.
At the moment, I have a lot of things I want to do and not enough time to do them all. I can only imagine that in the next five years, I’ll be doing something pretty similar to what I do today -chasing what I love and helping those I can along the way. I love running so I hope I’ll have completed at least one marathon in the next five years, maybe even the NYC Marathon if I can. I’d like to say that I’ll have a six pack by then, but that one might be a bit more of a reach – I love food too much, especially after runs. Guitar, piano and music in general have been a great addition to my life in recent years so I hope to become a more confident amateur– the kind that are brave enough to play at open-mic nights. I also expect my faith to grow because it’s pretty important to me now and it tends to mature over time as I do. And though it always seems unlikely because of time constraints, I would like the chance to travel abroad - with friends and family, or possibly even solo. And last but surely not least, I hope to continue to meet great people that will expand my horizons while simultaneously strengthening and deepening the relationships that already exist.
In 5 years, ideally I see myself already being a math teacher in some high school, probably still in New York State somewhere. I will have probably been out of graduate school by that point, if I stay as a full time student that is. It's possible that I'd do part time grad school and work full time while I was doing that, but there are a lot of external factors that I can't really control. The most important thing is to just keep on track and roll with the punches. If I keep pushing towards my goal I'm sure that I'll get there.
"I, for one, accept our new Google overlords" said a computer
science teacher at my old high school.
Last year in my old high school, my teacher brought up this
conspiracy that Google is taking over the world. It was obvious that
he was joking, but there were some truth to this theory. Google is
gathering plenty of data about individuals as we speak. They have
access to what we search, which in turn lets Google understand our
preferences, problems, and intelligence. Furthermore, they released
Google Chrome and Google+ in the past decade. With it, they have
access to who we know, how we define the level of friendship we have
with them, the sites we commonly visit, and more! I'm currently
waiting for the new Google laptop to come out. There was no mention
of it being developed, but I have a hunch that it will be made soon.
As for where I think I'll be in 5 years, it better have the
words "working" and "Google" in the same sentence. I will try very
hard in the next 5 years to impress the Google employers so that I
can be a part of this overlord status. Will it be enjoyable? Yes. Will
it be awesome? Most definitely. What will I do with this power?
Absolutely nothing different from what I'm doing right now, which is
programming, eating, and sleeping. Oh, have I mentioned what Google's
office buildings are like?
They're playgrounds. If you don't believe me, do a web image
search for it (preferably not using Google search). The front page
results include slides and hammocks. Is there work to be done? Yes.
Conquering the world requires a ton of work, and there will be times
when I won't be napping on those hammocks in order to write the
software Google finds necessary for world domination.
Five Year plan:
As of May of 2014, I will hopefully complete my undergraduate studies here at SUNY Albany. In five years I will like to be in my final year of medical school, completing my clinical rotations.
I hopefully will be happy and will have traveled more of the world; as my long term goal in life is to travel the world. I want to continue to challenge the world. In five years I will like to have in mind where I will be completing my residency.
Where will I be in five years?
That’s a good question. A really good question. Hmmmmm……
Well, I had always hoped to invent a time machine someday so, if I did do it eventually, Future Jared will simply visit me now and tell me what will happen to him/me in five years.
And, since I have not been visited by an older version of myself wearing some kind of shiny, futuristic garb, I am going to assume that either I will never invent a time traveling machine or Future Jared is a jerk. I’m leaning more towards the latter.
There is a saying that goes, “Men plan, God laughs.” I guess it might seem a little cynical at first, but there is some truth in it. We can make all the plans in the world, but sometimes the world has its own plans. And part of life is being able to compromise and adapt to the situations and people around you; to not get discouraged; and to never stop moving toward some goal, even if you have to take the scenic route and it sometimes seems like you are going backwards. Never stop moving.
Some scientists view the future as a vast array of innumerable possibilities branching off of the immediate present, not unlike the branches of a tree stretching away from the trunk in every direction. And, as you go through life, you will come to an infinite number of forks in the road and you will have to decide what to do. Some decisions will be easy (“Should I put on pants before I go to school today?”) and others will be hard (“Should I get Rocky Road or Cookie Dough ice cream…or both?”). You will constantly have opportunities for success, so don’t worry if you miss a couple.
Did you know that, if the universe is infinite, then that means there are an infinite number of versions of you and me living out every type of life we could ever possibly think of and more? Out there in the universe there is a version of you who actually likes country music (Scary, right?) and a version of me who actually goes to the gym on a regular basis and is therefore in good shape. You are a successful teenage doctor like Young Neil Patrick Harris on another world and I am President of the United States in yet another (God help us if that ever happens). And, if the universe is infinite, then that means there are an infinite number of Jareds sitting on an infinite number of couches typing out these very words an infinite number of times. If your brain has not exploded from thinking about all these infinities, then please read on. If your brain has exploded…well, I guess I’m sorry…I hope it wasn’t too messy.
My point is that, while it is a good idea to make plans for the future and to have goals and dreams, do not be surprised if some of them don’t come true and that maybe even better opportunities will come your way. We might not know what the future holds, but the possibilities are literally limitless.
For me, I guess the only thing I know for certain is that in five years I’ll be 29 years old and my 30th birthday will be looming in the not-so-distant future. Hopefully, I’ll be finishing up on my graduate studies and starting to look for a job that pays well and gives me the satisfaction of knowing that I am making a difference in this world. Maybe I’ll be married or maybe I’ll still be single. Maybe I’ll still be in Albany or maybe I’ll retreat to warmer climates. There are so many things that can happen in five years; I can’t wait to see what’s in store.
All of this is assuming, of course, that I don’t die in the near future. In that case, I’ll probably be decomposing underground or sitting in an urn on a mantel somewhere in five years.
Well, that ending was surprisingly dark :D
Where will you be in five years?
In five years, I hope to have accomplished many things. At that time, I am hoping to be graduating with a Masters degree associated with business and economics. I also see myself established in my career, involving international business and steadily moving up in my job. My job will require me to travel a decent amount, so I will have visited many countries and places. One of my ultimate goals within my career would be to become a CEO of a highly recognized corporation, but in five years I am hoping to at least be a part of that corporation and slowly working my way up to the highest position. Additionally, I see myself married and possibly having a child as I feel that five years from now I should be starting to settle down and create a family to call my own. Even as five years does not seem too far away, I am sure these goals can be accomplished.
In 5 years, I see myself as a successful physician assistant or nurse practitioner. I would have graduated from a physician assistant program and received my master's in science or have gotten a second bachelor's in nursing and then a master's in nursing. I would be extremely happy with my accomplishments academically and even more excited to finally be in scrubs.
Personally, in 5 years, I will be reaching the time in my life that I've worked my whole life so far for; living on my own and being financially stable. I hope to have an apartment, hopefully, in South Florida so I don't have to worry about the cold or shoveling snow. Not to mention, I'll always be able to go to the beach. Basically, in 5 years, I see myself living the life I've always wanted with a career in the field I've always dreamed of. My goals may seem far fetched to other people, but I rather aim for the moon and land in the stars than not try at all.
