    1. Learn 4 more languages fluently, in addition to English, and speak at least
    one more competently. My chosen four are Spanish, Czech, French and Portuguese. The language I wish to learn to competency is German.
    2. Compete in an aerial arts competition.
    3. Publish a work - book, pamphlet, whatever. Non-fiction.
    4. Enjoy a solid, meaningful, deeply loving relationship with the same person.
    5. Master writing in English.
    6. Live and work in a place where I am operating in my 2nd/3rd/4th language daily
    7. Go to the school of my dreams for my Masters degree (preferably debt-free )
    8. Be absolutely proud of my presence in the world and the work I'm doing in it.
    9. Become more tech-saavy in a few key areas.

    The thread was going to be 21 instead of 50, but I didn't want to exclude myself

    I would love to run a marathon, my friend did the Brighton one earlier this year and it completely knackered him out! Definitely takes a lot of preparation.
    Ive only done half marathons which were local to me but I want to do a full one hopefully next summer.

    I am already doing German and will start Russian next year at uni (well mayb self-study this year if i get off my ass) and in the second year of uni I will considering taking up Luxembourgish cause it seems interesting af

    That gets me to 4 including English. I'm not sure about a 5th, but it'll probably end up being something Germanic like Danish or Dutch.

    There is a small part of me that wants to keep trying to learn French as well but idk i jus cant motivate myself to learn French like I could with German.
    Russian and Luxembourgish :gasp: That's really interesting! You should attempt Mandarin Good luck with it though, would be really useful for travelling too!

    I prefer to raise children (if I ever have a missus) there, since is a relaxed and civil environment. Also is a good place to retire.

    Do you have a career goal or perhaps a life goal that you want to achieve before you reach the big 5-0?

    I wish to write and publish a book, the trilogy if I'm lucky

    Then for it to become a film and I become a millionaire - easy as A, B, C
    I'm always impressed by people who can write books! Do you have an idea for your trilogy?
    Mostly, I want to have a husband, children and perhaps even grandchildren.

    Although I'd be happy to do it anytime before I die, one of the main things I'd love to do is try every flavour of Oreo out there that I can actually get.
