    To be great at what I love.

    To leave a ripple effect of positive actions behind me.

    To make a special person feel like they are the only other person in the world when we are in the same room as each other.

    A loving family (husband, kids etc), a nice home, a good degree in MFL or Law & French, cushy job in the Foreign Office

    You?
    Interesting, the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (or Home Office, if not) is my goal too.

    Language Specialist? :holmes:

    a happy, healthy family & to have seen the world.
    to have a love thats so real you can sense each other, even when you're not together. a love thats totally untouchable and perfect, that it feels like the rest of the world doesnt exist when we're together.

    Yep! Well, languages specialist-to-be. :love: I'm only in year eleven. Yay for us, we have the best goals :yep:
    Do you do languages as well? Do you mind me asking your a-levels/degree?

    Thanks, when you have experienced something like that you know not to settle for a plastic copy instead.

    I think we were quoting at least two Stones tracks in that. I always thought that what you need will make you happier than what you want. Maybe as well happiness is coupled to integrity?

    My A-Levels were Maths, Physics and Computing, along with CCNA on the side. I did a year of BSc (Hons) Computers & Electronics at the University of Essex, and now I'm doing BSc (Hons) Computer Science at the University of Plymouth.

    Obviously my area of expertise isn't in languages. Ideally, I'd like to go for an Intelligence based role, otherwise networks and security or software engineering or something similar - in which case, the Ministry of Defence would be best.

    If you stick to languages through to degree level (at least a 2:2), I know you'll have a very rewarding career at the FCO, for language specialists it's much more than just translating.

    Too awesome quoting songs ive never heard. You've experienced all that-happiness? The proper stuff? Jesus, lucky you. It's easy to muddle what you want and need. I always thought what I wanted would make me happy. That's sort of why I want it in the first place
