Alex in Transit(ion)

A great WordPress.com site

where I see myself in ten years, revisited.

I stumbled upon a post I wrote in July, where I wrote about where I see myself in 10 years. As I was studying for the GRE last night, I decided to check it out again. When I wrote it in July, I was looking for some inspiration to stay focused on studying for the GRE, which I was planning to take in September but then my job assignment came up. 

I’m glad to say everything on that list didn’t change.

Especially this:

When I’m 34, I hope that my closet is full of hiking and camping gear because I hope to have hiked up Mount Marcy and gone rock climbing several times.

and I’m pretty sure living in Northern Virginia reinforced this, haha:

When I’m 34, I hope to live in a city…after growing up in the country, even though it is beautiful, living in a city aligns more with my lifestyle. I don’t want to rely on my car, in fact, I hope that I will live somewhere where I would be able to sell it since I won’t need it or have a one car household. Honestly, if I really needed a car, I could just rent one. I really enjoy public transportation and I want to live somewhere where I would be able to commute via foot, bike, or train. When I was living in DC, I was the happiest I’ve ever been because I got the chance to do that every single day. I lived for my train ride in the morning and my half hour walk back home.

…and I still ache to do this:

When I’m 34, I hope that I will have performed in a play. I really miss doing theater. The last play I was in was during my freshman year of college. That needs to change.

I know why I’m taking this test.
