Reverb10 – Day 21: Future self

December 21 – Future Self.

Imagine yourself five years from now. What advice would you give your current self for the year ahead? (Bonus: Write a note to yourself 10 years ago. What would you tell your younger self?)

Myself in five years from now

In five years from now, I will have finished my PhD, and will be living and working in yet another country, together with my boyfriend and two cats. I’ll be fluent in Spanish and carry out research and receiving feedback from international fellow researchers. -That’s what I hope for-

Advice to my current self

Look at the bigger picture, and don’t waste too much time and energy on the little details. Work day by day towards the real goals, and learn to say “no” to little activities which take up too much of your time.

Write a note to yourself 10 years ago. What would you tell your younger self

Don’t try to grow up so fast, enjoy the ride, take the chances that come along the way. Don’t be so stressed about what is coming next. Enjoy every moment, don’t wander off too much into thinking about the future.
