Hello fellow a.netters,

Just watching Discovery channel and the commercial asked the question: "Where do you see yourself in 10 years? How will your future look like in 10 years?"

It made me think. 10 years, then I am 41  crazy ... I hope to have a wife and 3 kids by then; I hope to be Captain on a short haul airplane within LH; I hope to be healthy to enjoy the time as Captain and to enjoy my time with my family; I hope to still have the same friends I do have now as they are very important to me...

I'll be 26. I will have been out of grad school for 1 or 2 years; that is if I attend any sort of grad school. I'll have a degree in Aviation Management, and I'll be working my way up in some airline career, whether it be flight attendant, or a corporate position.

Seriously now... I hope that my girlfriend and me stay healthy, that we keep our jobs, that we can go on vacation as we like, etc. Basically.... I hope that everything will be as it is right now! Big grin

Wow...I'll be 40. Hopefully still with my partner (will I be able to call him "husband" by then), hopefully still with as much hair (God, we made a deal, remember!), hopefully with my family and friends still healthy (gosh, my parents will be in their early 70's/late 60's then!).

For me the bigger question is where we'll be...my partner wants to move back to Germany, which I would love to do, so we'll either own a flat in DC or one in Dusseldorf.

Oh, and I'll use the mid-life crisis excuse to buy me a Boxster!

I hope we are all still alive in good health and have a little getaway in the good old CH were we can enjoy the fruits of our hard labor for a few months and travel within Europe during our stay.....

Worried about my daughter, chasing after my son (he's already a terror) and hopefully flying a desk. If not, JCAB check airman status will be sufficient if I get on with a carrier out this way.

I really have no idea--I'm not even sure where I see myself in three months.

Probably working in some law related field (barring any unforeseen circumstances, I will be attending law school as the class of '13), probably either in a serious relationship, or already married (that's a scary concept) with possibly a kid on the way (even scarier...)

In the ideal situation I would be sending my daughter off to university. In reality I fear that further deterioration of my health will leave her fatherless but hopefully if her health and development allow still on her way to living a happy life

It looks that many have personal dreams or thought where they are, like family, friends, health. I haven't really seen anything about: "I see me in a awesome Mercedes SLR McLaren" or something like that. So it seems that the personal values are still higher than the material ones.
My best friend gave birth to her daughter yesterday! Everything is fine, all are fine and I am so happy for her and her husband!! THIS is what counts most!!

I will be 44 by then (2019), more than over the hill!  Wink

Currently I am pursuing my PhD in craniofacial embryology at UCSF; I have at least 3 years left on it (hope to finish in 2012).

By 2019, I hope to be finished (or nearly so) with my postdoctoral fellowship (could be at UCSF, or could be back at King's College London, my alma mater, God only knows).

If I have finished my postdoc by then, I hope to be in a faculty position at a university in the USA, the UK, or Europe that has a craniofacial developmental biology programme. I hope to teach and continue my research in this emerging field--a field all too close to my heart (as a living example of craniofacial malformations).

I also hope to have an improved, less obstructed upper airway (via improved jaw surgery) by then. (Currenly my mouth and airway are very small, compromising my breathing, eating, and swallowing.) I have heard there are artificial TMJ devices; one on each side of my malformed lower jaw would really help, since I have no functional joint on either side!

As for my bone conduction hearing aid, in 10 years, I hope to have availed myself of the latest, totally-implantable Borg-like hearing implants (that cannot be seen externally). Medical researchers are actually now working on implantable hearing devices that can be totally buried under the skin! By that time, I will have been totally assimilated by the Borg... Wink

In a nutshell, I will be completely bionic (with the most advanced, Borg-like implants in my head for hearing and jaw function), researching and teaching about craniofacial embryology either in the USA or Europe.

Rich and retired.

If not (the most likely scenario)...

Happily married with JCS17 Jr. in preschool or in elementary school. With enough money so that my wife can stay at home and I can send my kid to a good private school.

I hope that in 10 years time I am in a position where I am able to do my bit for the world. I want to do something to reduce our impact on the environment, and make my contribution to a sustainable future on Earth.

I want to help others improve their lives and have the same opportunities I have had. I see myself making these contributions by working as an engineer in the renewable energy sector and living in a sustainable and environmentally friendly manner.

Hopefully, by that point in time, I will have seen and experienced a lot more of the world and met lots of people of various nationalities. I hope to finally figure out who I am, and be comfortable with it.

Having time to indulge various interests and hobbies would be nice and who knows, perhaps a family of my own.

absolutely no idea , ten years ago I was living in New Zealand working in the travel industry , three years ago I was living in Belgium working in a call centre Sad , currently I am living in Mauritius as a househusband . If I had to guess I would say that I will probably be living in Africa or Europe or Australasia , and that I would think Antartica , Asia ( other than maybe Central Asia ) or the Americas are probably pretty unlikely for me ( hopefully of course I will still be living )

That is just perfect. If you are happy where you are now, then why change anything? I am sure many people will envy you for it. Being happy where they are is something you don't see a lot.
Keep it up!

I hope I'll be healthy as well as my partner. I hope my parents are still alive then. I hope my sister and I are still best friends and that she's happy.
I hope I'll be a full professor by then and that my scientific career goes well.
I think I'll be married with my current partner by then and I hope we have a nice house.
I hope climate change isn't too much of an issue by then.
I hope I'll finally reach stupid silver in my flying blue account.  Wink

I'd like to have paid off as much of my student loan as possible, if not all of it, and have a well paid job. I'd like to have finished my masters by then too, but I'm not sure if I'd take a job in Landscape Architecture or follow my dream and become a pilot - student debt is bad enough and I just don't fancy another even bigger pile to pay off.  Sad

Hopefully I'll be healthy and wise, with a small family. So long as I'm happy though that's the main thing.
