    Where were you:

    10 years ago
    I was 14, playing lots of baseball, thought I was destined for big things!

    5 years ago
    I was 19, doing lots of things I shouldn't, living a highly reckless lifestyle with no foresight to the future. living every day to the fullest while ignoring the future and potential consequences of my actions!

    1 year ago
    Just started working for the government, started exercising regularly a few months before this point and started to notice results. Single, life cleaned up and looking more prosperous than in past years.

    Where do you see yourself in:

    1 year
    Probably still working for the government, with a different title and more monies.

    5 years
    Either a manager within the government (possibly a different branch of the government) or perhaps by this point I will have left for the private sector for a more lucrative position. Student loan should be long gone so hopefully my bi-annual trips down south can begin at this point. :x:

    10 years
    Hard to say. Hopefully by this point I'm very established, own instead of rent. Maybe by this point I'll have some little ones running around causing havoc. Who knows.


    And last but not least....

    Where are you at now?
    Living in Halifax. Love my job, great place to work and grow professionally. Great relationship, couldn't ask for anything better - very happy both personally and professionally. Laid the foundation for a good future, now to do what I have to do to make my goals a reality

    I sound like a motivational speaker

    I was married, living in Port Hawkesbury, working full time at EDS as an acting supervisor

    1 year ago

    I had officially moved out of my apartment, living back home at my parents and could barely stay out of bed for more than an hour, couldn't hold a conversation or even dress myself.

    Where do you see yourself in:

    1 year
    Living in Moncton, hopefully working in the medical field (hoping at a hospital). Taking part time courses in school.

    5 years

    Own a house, hopefully in a good, healthy relationship, still working in the medical field.

    10 years

    Probably remarried and maybe have a kid.

    And last but not least....

    Where are you at now?
    Not at all where I want to be but I'm getting there. Compared to where I was this time last year I think I'm making good progress towards my goals and what I want. Currently still living with my parents, trying to find work so I can get back on my feet and test out what I can handle.

    Where were you:

    10 years ago

    I was 15 and had just moved to Dartmouth after living in the country almost my whole life. What a culture shock! I survived only because I could play sports. I was in with the brothas because I could dunk.

    5 years ago

    Decided I needed to make some money somehow. Mitch suggested I move to AB and work on the rigs! So, that's what I did. Landed a job with Roll'n Well Servicing. My first paycheck was $3,400 clear...I think my eyes popped out of my head :lol:

    1 year ago

    Started a job that will most likely be my last :cool:

    Where do you see yourself in:

    1 year

    Same job I have now, top pay level. Purchase a $1million rental property.

    5 years

    Consulting for operations on a future phase of our company's oilsands project.

    10 years

    Just in the process of quitting my "real" job and moving toward running my own investments for a living. Real estate rentals/sales/development/management. Own at least $10m worth of rental properties. Probably working much harder than I am now. Might take closer to 15 years.

    And last but not least....

    Where are you at now?
    Living in Fort McMurray, getting up well before the suns comes up. It sucks for now, but it's worth it.
