    What goal are you working towards right now? How close are you to achieving it, and do you think it's realistic?

    It can be anything, no matter how big or small.

    To make a permanent move abroad (judging by my username you can probably guess where )

    It's not going to happen for another couple of years, I have a couple of career things to sort first but I have a friend (also a doc) who made the move, so I know it can happen.

    I have lots of goals right now..but the closest one is to finish my essay for this friday! (the second draft was due two weeks ago..oops but I told myself that I would finish it this week since it's due 7th january and that'll let me have time to revise it and get feedback). It's pretty realistic since I've done all of the research and have most of my thoughts in my head just gotta sit down and write 'em. and I am close in the sense of a week not being that long but I haven't really started writing, I only sorta have an introduction...

    Other goals are to get into uni, study abroad, travel abroad, get a job, enrol in a gym and much more...

    They are realistic though sometimes I feel as if I may be dreaming too big. The biggest issue is where to get money for all of this, but I guess I could take loads of student loans and pay it back...

    Good luck everyone else with reaching ur goals

    To end up with an academic post somewhere, a semi-regular column in the New Statesmen, published books about foreclosure in James Joyce's novels and a sexually liberated girlfriend preferably from west or central Africa who shares my interest in modernism, left-wing politics and test cricket.

    More realistically, I would like to achieve at least one of those things at some point within the next fifteen years.

    I want to get a job in a laboratory, hopefully as a trainee but I don't know how realistic that is now as the job I was specifically studying for basically doesn't exist anymore :rolleyes: But really, the main goal is any job to get me stable. I'm willing to move at first but the final goal is a good job in Edinburgh.

    They're all boringly realistic goals lol

    realistic is good doesn't have to mean that it's necessarily boring..The fact that the job u want doesn't exist anymore makes it tricky..Many here on tsr want an academic future and hopefully a stable one.

    My short term goals including chasing up the display adaptor I bought through the postal system and buying a mandatory university-branded calculator despite having a fully-functioning and cheaper one already. I'll miss you, Casio...

    In the medium-term, I aim to pass discrete mathematics (hoping there's some form of maths-based miracle) and find true happiness.

    In the long term, just something humble like changing the world. Oh, and I'd love to travel around Germany and the US.

    I'd like to get good A-Level grades and get into a good University.

    and not turn into an obsessive academic in doing so So I guess, have a life and get good grades? I'm not very good at maintaining a healthy balance between socialising/working so we'll see how that goes.

    This post made me smile for some reason. I think it's the thought you've put into ranking your ambitions.

    If it helps, think of your calculator as a souvenir of Southampton.
