I wanted to skydive, and I did.

I was married and had a son and a new daughter. I was home with them but I was a registered nurse before my son was born.

I wanted to own my own home – and did. That was my only concrete “goal” before thirty.

Sure I accomplished plenty of other things, but they were never goals per se. More like the results of hard work, good timing and a boatload of luck.

I aspired to become a rocket scientist. Instead, I learned to tie my own shoes all by myself.

The same things I want to accomplish before I’m 50, because I didn’t accomplish them at 30.

30 seems like such a huge milestone when you haven’t reached it yet. Most of my goals are work and financial goals.

I’m the assistant manager of a small gourmet market right now. I want to be very successful at this so it can be the start of a real career. I want to at least manage my own store or restaurant and work with gourmet food or wine, and maybe work in small business development.

I want a bachelor’s degree. Right now I’m still in community college and I’m 22. It’s taking forever because I’ve had to work full time for the last few years.

I want to have my finances together enough to buy a home and maybe support a child. I’ve always wanted to adopt an older foster child.

I wanted to marry a beautiful woman and have beautiful chidlren, and I did. I wanted to make Captain in the Army, and I did. I wanted to get my Masters degree, but that didn’t happen until I was 39.

I wanted to own and run a business and own a home, I did. I wanted to know love, admiration and trust, I did.

Well I just hope I don’t die before then.

I don’t really set goals like that…it’s more like I have a list of things I would like to do whenever it’s possible. But by the time I’m 30 I would like to have my BA in physics, hopefully have a job in that area, maybe married to my current boyfriend. Enough money to support my family, but not more. But most of all…I would really like to have a close family, no more dramma, no more yelling and fighting.
I know it’s a lot…but I have a lot of time, I’m not even 18 yet
