Long term: move up in my field for a pay jump, build a home lab to practice my work skills on, save up to buy my own house, replace my current car, possibly add a second car into the mix, get vinyl wraps on one or both.
Short term: pay off my existing debt, get a proper emergency fund saved up, save for currently planned trips, buy a UPS for my desktop instead of having it sit directly on the surge protector, get a collectibles staging area setup in my place, as well as a proper TCG deckbuilding area setup so I'm not using my dining room table to deckbuild.
Short term: move up to a better position at work, get back on medication for adhd , overcome some of my anxiety a little bit , make more friends, get a boyfriend, go back to school so I can work on a career, maybe finally get the courage to learn to drive , move out of my house and into an apartment of my own
Long term: become an art teacher or have a career in art, get married , move into a nice neighborhood, maybe adopt a kid with future husband
"Unable to perceive the shape of You, I find You all around me. Your presence fills my eyes with Your love, It humbles my heart, For You are everywhere"
I want to get engaged or married by the time I'm 30, but that may not be possible since I have to focus on settling down somewhere more permanent first. Otherwise long-term I'd also like to travel to more countries (ideally at least Switzerland, see more of Europe, the Nordic countries, and Japan), and short-term land an art gig that will allow me to work from home at least 50% of the time. Working your typical 9-5 weekday job made me miserable and while I know I'm definitely not alone in not wanting to go out every weekday to work, it'd be nice to find a good balance for me so I don't spend the next 40 years of my life too miserable haha. please!
Honestly, I'm not really sure. You would think that being 30 going on 31 that I'd have things sorted out by now. The hard part is that I'm also limited some by my disabilities and anxiety. So, it's not easy to have such things and keep up with them. There's a lot of things I could do better if my anxiety wasn't so horrible to me. I just feel like having major goals is pointless for me because of how my future will go due to my challenges and what not.
Long-term: Continue to create new things; A job or at least find something stable, Move out of the area I live in with family, Learn how to drive, Work on relationships with people (like my Nan, Aunts //I don't see them a lot//), Travel to new places.
Short-term: fix my keys, save up money for a rainy day or if something backfires.
I actually don't want much, but work and being stable is what I want to do most. The location I currently live in, is a little bit of a hindrance to that (the transportation is unreliable), but I do wish to try and get these done in the next few years. Hopefully. At he moment, I am working on these, but it's nice to just take my time with it.
honestly i just want a job i don't hate that pays enough for me to live and have room for my hobbies to fit in. that's literally all i want. i'm a simple guy.
something like this seems so simple and minimal to ask for, yet is a lot harder to actually get nowadays.... I feel you

aaaa yeah I forgot to mention this in my previous post. It's definitely very high on my priority list as both a short and long-term goal. My mental health has been good lately, but I never know how long that will last.
