10 years from now… what my IDEAL situation would be that i have a job i love that fulfills me creatively and ambitiously and does not consume my every waking minute, allowing me time to pursue other passions, while also leaving me comfortable financially (although stipulation this is less important than the other). i would like to have someone i love who i am committed to (not necessarily legally), who is interesting and intelligent, and totally compatible with myself… someone i can talk to for hours, and someone who makes me excited to come home. i would like to maybe have children, maybe not. i would like to have a dog, preferably an english bulldog. i would like to have (remember… ideal situation) a small apartment in new york and a small cottage somewhere rural (possibly in another country). this home would be small, with just enough bedrooms plus a bathroom. it’ll be eclectically decorated with prized possessions from travels and adventures, art from family and friends and ourselves. it will have a small library/sunroom with a fireplace and large bay windows overlooking something nice and a deep leather chair that is the perfect comfortability that one could doze off easily in it and huge wooden bookcases that stretch from the ground to the ceiling and cover every wall. it will have an overgrown garden that i will sculpt and nurture until it is the sweetest little secret garden with flowers and old trees with swings and maybe a small pond where there’ll be frogs and tiny fish. it will also have several fruit trees a small vegetable/herb garden which i will use to cook my family’s meals in, and donate the rest to the town’s soup kitchen. i will own a small coffee shop which i will largely run, but sometimes leave to employees to run. it will have mismatched chairs and low coffee tables with large hardcover books on art. all the coffee cups will be mismatched, and the coffee will be cheap and delicious. all the pastries will be made on the premise. there will also be a small art gallery attached where i will show new artists. i will continue my own art and actually be SATISFIED with it for once. i will have traveled freely to all the places i have desperately wanted to, yet still have a burning desire to travel more. i will have lots of dear friends, and no friends that don’t matter to me in my heart. i will stop caring what people think of me, and i will be kind and friendly and always generous.
i will be free, fulfilled and happy.
So um…. I was about to do Day 3 myself but it looks like there’s no need. Perfect, to a tee. Probably since we’ve discussed this so many times.
(Also I’m extremely tired and don’t have the energy to write out my own “In Ten Years” scenario. But seriously, this is perfect.)
