    I will be 35 and hope to have 2 kids, 2 dogs and be in our forever home soon to celebrate our 13th wedding anniversary. I hope the world has self driving cars then.

    I am 31. I remember being 15 in 2000 and thinking what it would be like to be 30 in 2015.

    I didn't want to go to university at the time but now I have done and now looking at postgraduate hence being on here and looking at applications procedure and funding updates.

    You can get to 25 and graduate, get some work experience and do a masters which would leave you in a place that you'd be happy with to go on into a career. At 25, I knew I could have children but there was something there that was calling on me to find out more and that was travelling and so if you specialise with your studies and do a job you enjoy then you can have 5 years of seeing the world, enjoying great food and drink, learning dances and music in many different cultures and for me now in my thirties, I feel like I have given parenting plenty of thought and I feel confident for that next stage of my life. Weddings get a bit repetitive and all your friends start having children but go see the world and learn and it'll all be waiting for you when you are ready to do it.

    14 years away, but that'll soon be upon us. How old will you be? What do you hope to be doing? And what do you think the world will be like then?!
    32, eek, I guess maybe married but probably no kids, trying to pay off my student debt . . . Sigh.

    Man, don't think like that, be positive.. There's always an alternative, do you have family you could stay with?
    Part time job?
    Why won't you get a job?

    Yeah, I do. Essentially I am incapable of jobs that supposedly require no skill (retail, waiting, bar work etc.) because of general impracticality, being fairly "slow" despite generally good intelligence, and poor social skills, so at 19 I have absolutely no work experience at all. I don't see me getting anything during uni time, hell I can't see myself bothering to apply to the entry level jobs I'd need to apply to since as I said I am too inept. So I'll finish uni and whatever class I get it won't matter since I'll have zero work experience. In addition I will never be acceptable, let alone good, in an interview scenario. Tbh I feel like my ineptitude borders on the clinical level but any explanations for it are typically diagnosed at childhood and myself I have no diagnosis or "excuse" for any of it. So I don't see why anywhere would have any impetus to hire me.

    Hmm, I don't know what to say, but I want to help man.. Hmm what do you want to become.. At least you're clever, but how bad is your ineptness?

    So the problem is your clever but lack social skills and fail to perform tasks others would find easy? Or have I got it wrong

    I'll be 37. I guess I might still be teaching, but in a proper school, rather than this foreign English teaching malarkey. Or I might be doing something completely different.
