Hopefully knowing where I am career wise, or where I'm definitely going at least
Hopefully well travelled
And I'd love to be in love and be happy.

I can barely see myself in the next couple of weeks, never mind at 25. But I figure it's got to be down to two options: either, I'll still be here trying to write my essay for uni or somewhere in the middle of the ocean, when I'm fed up with everything... So, outcomes - not looking good for me. lol

Antarctica! Ok it sounds unrealistic and probably is, but its somewhere I've always wanted to go and there are job opportunities out there in my chosen field. Then again, if it doesn't happen I'll just have to go there on holiday at some point (if I can ever afford it!)
Everything else, I haven't thought too much about. IF I ever have children I'd like them before I'm 32 (the same age my mum had me) and IF I did have them, I'd like to be in a stable relationship.
To be honest, whilst I have dreams and aspirations I know that realistically it will take me longer than the 7 years to get them. I probably won't be leaving Uni till I'm 22.
I think its good to have dreams, but I like to keep mine fairly non-specific and allow them to change with time. A lot can happen in 7 years for example that would make you totally change your dreams but be just as happy as you imagined yourself being.

I started my graduate job a few months before my 20th birthday. Entered uni early and I also finished all my modules 1 year ahead of schedule, never had summers off, took classes instead. Also was fairly lucky my alma matter was located in a good location where companies such as Boeing, Microsoft and Starbucks were all within close proximity... had plenty of internships and industrial placements throughout my undergrad years.
Transferred to Britain just before turning 23, and I was in a fairly good position with the bank I had started out with in USA. Then several postings abroad in China, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore somewhat helped a lot... tax-free allowances and benefits as well as bonuses made for a fairly good pot to get into property speculating Career progression....... it just boiled down to working hard and smart.

like roughly how old are you now? you must be like 35 at least, cos theres no way a 25-30 year old could do all that.

i think it is a bad comparison to everyday bog standard 'just graduated dunno what to do maybe i should TEFL abroad for a year' 25 year olds
Maybe luck has some part to it as well, I happen to experience the dot-com bubble before it burst, rallying commodities and stock markets. Plus the rental market was doing very well as the economy was good then.
