Day 2 of my blog challenge and the prompt is where I would like to be in 10 years. I feel like that is such a loaded prompt because honestly, I’m not too sure where I hope to be in 10 years. I’m up for a challenge though, so here goes!
I’d like to have adopted at least one dog by the time I am 41! I love animals, and while my two cats are my world, I do want to add a dog to the family. I have always grown up with one and have a special connection with canines. Specifically, I hope to rescue a pit bull. They are such an awesome and misunderstood breed; but what other breed has ranked as high as Seargent in the US Military? Or was referred to as the ‘nanny’ dog, where parents would trust them enough to leave them alone with their young children? But all dogs are equally as awesome so it will be dependent on who I’m meant to find.
I hope to have traveled to Greece and Italy in the next 10 years. I’m Italian and it has been a huge dream to go over there one day, especially to where my ancestors are from. For as long as I can remember my family has traced our roots back and kept our traditions alive. While I have recently discovered that not all of our traditions are from the old country, they are still traditionally Italian! Now Greece is a place that I have more recently become infatuated with. From the sapphire blue waters and the food to the clean blue-and-white traditional architecture. I feel Greece is so rich in history and culture and I want to learn. Traveling means a great deal to me because I love to learn and experience new adventures. So hopefully I’ll get to cross these two places off my list.
In 10 years I hope I have found a career that I love and can finally stick with! This is forward in my mind considering my current status, as I’m sure most of us know or have fallen victim to unemployment. I’m taking it as a sign that it’s time to move on to find where I am needed and where I am happiest. I love to help people, grow, learn, and feel important (who doesn’t?) while being creative and active. I hope in 10 years I have found my place and am living my best career life.
I hope to have my dream apartment or house. I want a place that has some sort of outdoor space: balcony, yard, porch. I want somewhere I can hang out on, drink my morning coffee on, or enjoy a glass of wine. I also hope to upgrade to a 2 bedroom apartment, for when my father or friends/family visit. Currently, he crashes on my very comfortable couch, but he deserves better and I hope I can make a place specifically for him when he visits. I also want some crazy architecture built-in, a place I can customize and decorate in all different styles!
I hope I will have met my significant other in the next decade. I’d love to be married, but even just in a long-term committed relationship. I’ve grown up a lot in the last year when it comes to dating and relationships, but there are some things I still need to learn and get better at personally. I tend to overthink (everything) and jump ahead and sometimes just forget to enjoy dating in general! Remember, always have fun and enjoy the journey.
