What I want to be doing
1 year: At University studying Jazz
5 years: Getting a job teaching music

What I think I'll be doing
1 year: Doing a foundation certificate because I failed college and couldn't get into Uni

I wanted to join the Army from the age of like 5 - 12. Then I discovered music and it's the only thing I actually want to pursue further in life. I'd still dig joining the army though.

Ideal:
1 year- staying in college, studying diligently, artistically prolific
5 years- in grad school, still studying diligently, still artistically prolific
10 years- I am the next Justin Vernon

More probable:
1 year- staying in college, studying diligently, artistically stagnant, but trying, dammit
5 years- in grad school, still studying diligently, become artistically prolific
10 years- entering a career in anthropology (my major), hopefully having written a good bit of music.

One year from now is pretty much identical to my life right now.

What I want to be doing
1 year: Travelling the world as an archaeologist, having a steady income and a great time digging up earth's history and fighting nazis. Also I'll have some symphonies finished and being played by orchestras.

What I think I'll be doing
1 year: Finishing my bachelor's in archaeology and maybe I'll be employed by the Swedish-Brazilian research project about indian tribes in the amazon, which is where I'll be going to in november.
5 years: After losing a fight and a few of my good men to the Heinrich A. Mannheimer I've taken up drinking as a way to numb the pain. My archaeology collegues try to comfort me as they've too been beaten by this mysterious foe. In a drunken moment I proclaim I'll have my revenge, in this life or the next.
10 years: Standing on Mt. Kilimanjaro's southern tip with Heinrich A. Mannheimer's glove in my right hand, watching him grasp for my hands as he plunges towards his death. In my left hand I'll be holding Ra's golden sickle which showed me the way to his hideout, and is the weapon he was looking for all these years. The weapon that could doom the entire world. I say "I guess the sickle finally found the sicko..." and throw the sickle down after him into the deep, cracked abyss where Heinrich A. Mannheimer plunged to his death. No one can use that sickle now.

Eventually I'd like to be an intelligence analyst for one of the government agencies with a 3-letter acronym. That or some sort of expert consultant on Middle Eastern relations.

Next year I want to go back to university for either my masters degree in history, or possibly another bachelors degree in either International Relations or Middle Eastern Studies.

Same, but more than likely IT technician. It's easier to get a job there than writing software
