  • I want to sing opera professionally, then retire from that and teach music theory somewhere. In five years I'll probably still be getting my BA, though, but hopefully in a bigger city with more cultural opportunities!

  • I want to open my own vet clinic some day.
    but that would require me going back to college, which I can't do until my daughter is older, and I have enough money.

  • Right now I sell Mary Kay, but I'm also in school to become a paralegal. I guess I'll have to test both out for a while once I graduate and see where both are taking me. I have always wanted to be an attorney, but Mary Kay is an amazing company and gives you so much freedom and potential to earn great money and vehicles.

  • I swear I thought I knew the answer to this question, but thinks are changing in my life and I feel a slightly new direction coming on. I have always been interested in science and education, and some projects at work seem to make that more clear to me. I know whatever I do it will deal with science!!

  • I want to be an elementary school teacher. I am in college right to get my degree with a dual major in elementary education and special education.

    In 5 years I will have had my degree for two years and hopefully have a teaching job in our local elementary or middle school!

  • My lifelong goal is to continue helping people realize that ANYONE can afford legal representation ...instead of paying an arm & a leg. And they have the power to call their attorney anytime ... BEFORE they sign that contract, pay that ticket, hassle with that defective product etc.

    I LOVE helping people !
    In 5 years I will be retired (15 yrs early) and LIVING my life and enjoying family time !
