How far into the future do you have planned? That's not a question based on vague "When I grow up, I want to be a ____ and live ____." I'm talking about actual roadmaps with how to get there.

What is your roadmap and where does it lead you?

I don't have much of my future planned. Right now my plan is: save money. I'm doing okay with that. I figure that when I do have something I really want I'll have something to rely on to help me.

    I've already grown up.. but now it is.. do well at work, save money, buy a property, invest. That's all I have now. I'm not thinking about marriage or kids cause that's a whole other ballpark that doesn't just rely on me. Who knows, really..
    And now I've taken up the gym so I guess another goal is to generally be healthier and fitter too.

    I'm planning to see family back in Canada in May.. and I am planning a trip to Japan for 2014. Also I'd like to get dual citizenship after these 4 more years. And my UK driver's license.

    Well. Map?

    Senior year I'm going to work my ass off and graduate with at least a B. I don't plan on going to college. I'll get a job at blockbusters or something like that during the next two years of high school. I'll save it up and then use half to buy a car (parents are pitching in, too) and I will probably have a small amount left afterwards. I will put that in a bank. I swear to GOD I am putting it in a bank. And then I'll take one year off. One year after senior year. Maybe I'll get a job with longer hours, and I'll use that time off to play guitar. The lead singer and bass player of my band will break away and go to college (they are for sure), and my friend will sharpen her bass skills and we can get Karrick (Drummer) to maybe help us record something. If I get money out of it, cool. If not, I'll then start up another small job and begin saving for college again.

    Or just go to college with the help of my parents.
    let's meet again
    in the next life

      I don't even have the next year planned out right now. I try to plan my semesters in advance so I have an idea of what I'm doing up until next fall, but as far as graduating with my Associate's and what to pursue after that, I'm clueless.

      I only just decided to go for education a month ago and found out a group member is going for the same thin today, and she was all excited asking where I'm going to intern and comparing the uni's in the area for it, and I'm just sitting there like, "oh..."

      I've never been ambitious u_u

      Not much is planned out.

      Get a job, finish school, get a better job, get into some college (I have yet to decide what for), etc.

      Just the normal stuff. :T
      I can't think of a good signature.

      As a kid, I'm still not sure about the plan I have in mind at the moment. I guess my future starts out with me taking three courses in college: journalism, architecture and multimedia thingy. Next, I get a job, get married, etcetera. I'm unsure if it's the permanent road map I want to take, but at the moment, it is.

      i’m a spark and you’re a b o o m

      No clue, honestly. I'm about to graduate uni really soon, and the options are: get a journalism job (if so, where exactly?? radio, tv, print, online), go back to uni and do a semester-long photography course, or go find a job in retail as a ~break~, or do whatever Centrelink has leftover as jobs.

      ...and so much more. Like I've had a million other ideas I have no clue what I'm doing. I'm mostly leaning towards the first option, tho, as I'm kind of over assignments and the other two sound quite boring.

      In the end I want to work for Channel 10. I plan to go take a year-long course on TV broadcasting in the future but I'll have to have been a journalist for a few years by then. I have no clue as to how to get there eventually, though...

        Planning for my future job, holidays and so on. If you don't look into the future and decide what you want to do, you will be wasting time deciding when it really matters.

        Not much actually, besides the fact that I'll be going to an anime convention in January and moving to Charlotte, NC as soon as I get to the top of the waiting list for an apartment complex there.

        Oh, I'm going grocery shopping and to Denny's for lunch afterward tomorrow.

        I have the next 10 weeks planned, which will culminate in me moving out of home with two roommates... again. Beyond that, I have no idea where life will take me but I'm very excited to find out!

          I'm very lucky to have about the next two years all planned out. The nature of my job means that my firm can't fire me unless I monumentally screw up (e.g. leaking confidential information, burning down the building etc.) so I essentially have job security for the two years of my training contract. I'm in a stable living environment, as my housemate owns the house I live in outright - mortgage and everything! - and I have no plans to get on the property ladder myself until after this training contract is up. In terms of planning after this two year period is up, I'm not entirely sure. I could wind up absolutely hating the corporate legal sphere and wanting nothing to do with it (although at the moment that seems very unlikely), or I could move firms to bigger and better opportunities, or I could just stay where I am. I like having security, but the possibilities that lie ahead of me in life are also quite exciting. I'd never want to be absolutely pinned down to something I can't get out of, but also need some sort of grounding, so I'm very content with where I am in life at the moment.
