    Why do I suddenly have "Once in a Lifetime" by the Talking Heads running through my mind? :roll:

    Same as it ever was, Silverblade, same as it ever was...

    [​IMG] Hmmmm...In ten years, I see one of these things happening:

    1) I will be celebrating my 2 year anniversary with my Russian bride that I ordered 2 years earlier (I have a pact with myself that if I'm not married at 42, I will order take out ;) )

    2) I will be married to someone I didn't order from a catalog and have 2 kids and a dog. Hopefully, my future wife will let me name our daughter Bronwyn.

    3) I will be a successful litigation/corporate attorney. Rich, powerful, and well respected...But single because I put work ahead of everything else.

    4) Single, a mediocre attorney, but a 20th level halfling rogue in ALFA with boots of speed, a +2 Longtooth dagger, and Nightstalker leather +5.

    5) An eccentric seashell painter on a tropical island. I can paint your favorite picture of Drizzt on a sand dollar for $20 bucks! ;)

    Let's all hope for choice #2!!!!!

    If I'm lucky enough I'll be living with the woman of my life, but I don't really need to marry her. Marriage can ruin a beautiful relationship sometimes, IMHO. Probably we'll already have our first baby, about 3 years old.
    If I won't became famous and rich playing music (sig* :rolleyes: :) ), I guess I'll do some biological research at Uni, or work in a protected area, or teach Science in high school, or do just a bit of everything from the above.
    Most probably I'll become a construction worker :mad: ...no no no, I must BELEIVE in myself! :cool:
    Anyway, whatever happens, I'll always have my guitar with me. :D :D

    [​IMG] Aragorn, do you play your guitar on the Spanish Steps so all the tourists can hear you? I spent a whole night there once just listening to people playing and singing....

    10 years, that's very much time. I should be 27 at this time, maybe I have a job and a nice wife. But as far as I know myself, I wont have that luck :( . That's one bad thing, the other one is, that I still don't know wich job I should learn. In one year, I have have to choose my subjects for the final tests at my school, and I still don't know what I should take, I'm really annoyed !

    Faragon: That's one sure thing. And Silly won't be role-playing succubi anymore ;) :nono:

    Sephiroth, that's what I thought 6 years ago (I was 17). If you don't have luck, then you still have your selfconfidence, pride and unknown charms. Boy, you're future is bright! Don't dream it, be it! ;)

    I hope my existing brood will be supplemented by a Blue-Point Siamese cat and a Bernese Mountain dog (the scream in the background you just heard was my husband reading over my shoulder), and that I live in a country house with at least an acre of land so that there is room for everybody and I can grow almost all of my own food. Ideally I have a goat for milk and cheese and a few hens for eggs.

    Professionally, I dream of: I've become a renowned science fiction author, albeit under a pseudonym so I won't be pestered by fans, and make all my living writing from home so I never have to interact in person with anyone but my husband and my animals ever again.
    Realistically, I expect: I'm a professor of management strategy at a Canadian or European business school, and I've published a couple of science fiction novels purchased only by my mother. :)

    Sir Bel: LOL!

    Ten years... hmmm... Stuffy Literature Professor (with tenure) at a small private university, married, no kids, a cat, a dog, house in the country (if possible), a massive library, a blazer with patches on the elbows, a really cool pipe, a soundproof practice room for my musician wife, a full liquor cabinet, and a really comfy armchair. Cable optional. High Speed Internet Required. Swimming pool in backyard would be good, but I will settle for a small central courtyard and a fountain. Lots of plants - overgrown vegetation is good.


    That or dead in a high-speed car chase involving a great deal of money or jewels. (I watch too many action/crime movies).

    I'll be 24...

    A vet, or a PC programmer for PC games.
    Hmm.
    Or even

    Having won the lottery, retiring to a nice big house, with everything I could ever need.

    @bel: I already played guitar on the Spanish Steps, but for my friends, not for tourists.
    Anyway, if you come here I'll play for you too. ;)

    In 10 years I hope to be done with my job here, to have been already at least to two other countries, and to still be willing to move around the world. Interesting jobs a priority, new parts of the world a must. Cannot rule out settling down in the meantime of course, but it would happen only on causes independent from my will ;)

    Talking about future, I did a career thing at school today. It printed out a list of jobs that I'd be good at. Most of them, surprisingly where jobs dealing with people. Only two that I liked the sound of where (and there where about 8 of the iirc) MP or Diplomatic person thingy.

    In 10 years, I'll be 10 years closer to death, or retirement, whichever comes first. My kids will be 15 & 12, which doesn't sound all that good at this point in time since my (handful of a) daughter will be just hitting her teen years. :rolleyes:

    If I'm still at the same company, I'll be nearing my 20 year anniversary, which means I'll get a 5th week of vacation each year. Yea!

    Hopefully, I will have been able to move from my current house to one where we have to make fewer compromises with our wants. An office of my own and a bathroom that I don't have to share with the kids are musts. :D

    Oh yeah, it would be nice if I'd at least been able to start a college fund for the little money-suckers as well. ;)

    [​IMG] I'd be 25 :eek:

    I'd hopefully have the website really good, be doing well in a job, be visiting my friend in America quite often, have published a couple of books and maybe some games. Completed my mods for BG and have money :money:

    I'll be 26 and probably in grad. school. the single problem with the career I want is the length of time I have to be in school.
