Where Will I Be In Ten Years Essay

The Times asked 18 high school seniors about their plans, and only one said he was undecided about his future. Others said they planned or aspired to pursue careers in psychology, medicine, photography and other fields. How about you? What are your goals? When you look into the future, where do you see yourself 10 years from now?

The Times Magazine’s interactive feature “High-School Seniors Predict Their Future” includes photographs of the 18 students who were interviewed, all from Patrick Henry High School in San Diego, along with audio clips of them talking about their goals. One student, Nathan Rebelo, age 17, said this:

When I get older I want to be an architect. I really, like, just designing homes, and my ultimate goal in life is just to be driving somewhere downtown and just be, like — like, show my kids or my family — just be, like: ‘I designed that building, that is me right there. I have my own stamp on life.’ Next year I’m hoping to go to U.S.C., so my fingers are crossed to get accepted. If I don’t get into U.S.C., I’m kind of just hoping for a school out of San Diego – really kind of just want to spread my wings, kind of. I don’t want to say I want to get away from my family, but I really just want to get on my own and discover who I am and be able to kind of be who I want to be without worrying about who’s going to say this or, just, the judgment of high school.

Students: Tell us about your personal goals. When you look 10 years ahead, where do you see yourself? What do you want to be doing with your career and life, and why? What are your dreams and aspirations in addition to specific goals? If you’re undecided, why do you think that is?

Where I Will Be In Ten Years

     As a senior in high school many students ponder the big question of life that seems to be asked by many. No that question is not where do you want to go to college, what are you doing after high school, that question would be where do you see yourself in ten years. As I reflect on my childhood I have many dreams and aspirations that I would like to accomplish within the next ten years of my life. In ten years I can see myself having many of my goal accomplished, if not accomplished, I will be working on accomplishing those goals to fulfill my life.

I live with my mommy and daddy in La Cresta along with my brother. I have many friends in my life right now, but i don’t want to drag on this paper with all of their names, but I hang with the guys on the weekends. I do not currently have a girlfriend but I am seeing a very beautiful lady by the name of Timarie Kelly. On campus at school I am involved in the custom car club, which has led me to a new found respect for automobiles. In high school my favorite subject is my senior English, because I have Mrs. Saylor as my English teacher, and I also love my TA class because it’s a kickback class with my friends Ray-Dawg, Nick, and of course the teacher Mrs. Moon.

     After high school I have many plans that I would like to accomplish, but I know that I have to take it slow because I can’t have everything at once. After I graduate, I plan to pick up business on my golf cart company that I operate for the time being. I would also like to continue working on my truck, and getting it into truck shows state wide. I hope to attend drag racing school sometime within a year after I graduate, so I can achieve my goal of becoming a drag racer. I plan to achieve my goals because I know that if I truly put my mind to something, I can do anything I want to do.
