Get to know the Real Me #2

2. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Let’s see – in 5 years, I will be 33 years old.  I’m not sure what I’ll be doing, or even where I want to be.  To be honest, I’m not really sure what I’m doing or where I want to be next week (ha).  But no, seriously.

Ace and I are fairly adamant right now about NOT having kids any time soon – I personally cringe at the thought of being responsible so completely for a tiny, dependent human being.  I love other people’s children, and delight in all that squishy baby stuff, as long as it belongs to someone else. That may change, but right now, my 5 year ‘plan’ (I have to use quote marks, I apologise, but it is hardly a plan at all) does not include children.  I’d really like a cat though.  A  black one.  Ace wants a dog.

I will still be training in martial arts.  I’m a lifer when it comes to karate.  I hope in 5 years, Ace has had the opportunity to try and run the karate club as a business, and is successfully teaching martial arts and self defence full time.  I hope I will still be playing roller derby, and maybe I’ll even be really good at it by then.

I might still be working where I work now?  My boss is a very nice boss, the hours are flexible and my job is pretty easy.  I have picked up a bit of extra veterinary nurse work to fill in some gaps in both my time and my brain, and hopefully I’ll still be doing that.  Perhaps I’ll be veterinary nursing full-time?  At least the vet clinic is only a 10 minutes drive from my house, rather than the 45-60 minute drive to the office where I work full-time currently.

This has kind of been a non-answer.  I don’t know where I will be in 5 years, except that it will be with Ace, and that’s enough for me.
