Leap Day - Four Years Ago, Four Years From Now watch

    Today is leap day :awesome:

    So I thought I'd try out a little game

    How were you like four years ago today?

    What will it be like for you four years from now?

    For me:

    Four years ago: I was becoming increasingly depressed in school because I didn't feel like I was fitting in and couldn't connect with many of my friends. I also had many insecurities and my natural tendency to want to do well in exams didn't help because I was only enforcing my 'nerd' image for an upcoming maths exam
    I started to get interested in old Hollywood actors and actresses at that time too, they were (and Audrey still is) a source of inspiration and a way to forget about everything that made me sad

    Four years from now: I'll hopefully have graduated (with a first!) from my first choice uni, perhaps with a PhD scholarship to start in the autumn. Who really knows though - I could have sold my virginity or something and be living as an upper class prostitute. I could be made to marry someone by my parents...

    Post your own past and future below!

    Four years ago - I would have been 19 and been with my bf for about 3 years at that point and living together for a year. I would have just started my biomedical sciences course at college and I had just started dyeing my hair ginger

    Four years from now - I'll be married to my bf by then, hopefully have a nicer flat or house, have more cats , be cured of OCD and panic disorder 100% instead of just treating it, hoping papa will have had his transplant and he will he happy and healthy, finally passed my driving lessons. Generally I just want to be happy and healthy in the future.

    4 years ago I got my mediocre GCSE results and cried over them. I got assured after making this account that I'd be fine to apply for Medicine. I moved out into my apartment and started college which was a big step up. 10 to 2000+ pupils :eek:. I was quite excited about making new friends and thought that my experience at college would be a positive one.

    4 years later I'll hopefully be doing my 3rd year of the Natsci degree programme at Cambridge. Hope to have done my first piano diploma but I don't have many predictions for this point. I suppose I might be deciding whether I'll stay for part iii or look for masters programs elsewhere.

    This is such a nice little leap year game!

    Ohhhh...

    Four years ago: I was still at uni back then so I definitely would still have been asleep at this time. I was living with my friend Emma in a really nice (not-so-studenty) house and I do believe there was a big freeze around this time and we could hardly even walk down the road to the shops!

    Four years from now: This concept is a bit too scary to think about, I try not to worry about the future too much but I guess I would really love to have bought my own flat by this point and not be renting, I also hope I've managed to go and do some proper travelling within the 4 years as I would love to see Bali, Vietnam and Thailand!

    Ooh, I like this one :cute:

    4 years ago would be year 9... I don't know what I'd have been doing, I never really had much of a social life at that point :lol:

    4 years from now I'll hopefully be in the last year of my EE degree! Wow, that seems a long way off...

    Four years ago: Year 8, Deteriorating mental health, diagnosed with two EDs and Bipolar disorder, pretty **** year tbh. Only good thing was Christmas.

    Four years from now: 3rd year of uni, fluent in French and learning Spanish/German, popular online for my photography/something creative, mood episodes more controllable and less of an issue, healthy and hopefully in a band

    Four years ago: I was in year nine so I was starting to become depressed, I had a lot of stuff going on at home and at school. I was being bullied every day from people who I thought were my friends the year before. I hadn't become all that interested in art yet but in a couple of months I would start drawing. My now best friend and I were just starting to get to be friends at this point and later on she would help me get through the hardest 3 years of my life mentally so far.

    Four years from now: I hope to be graduated or graduating from university this year with a 2:1 or a first in illustration! I would really like to be working as a book cover designer or book illustrator. I would also love to be planning to move to New York at some point too

    4 years ago: Had dropped out of uni, moved and got a job as a waitress. Really difficult, anxious and tearful time. Felt quite hopeless.
