    Uni in September for animation. Three year course. Then a masters. And then hopefully I'll be living with my boyfriend and working in a studio...

    Graduate this year, after which I'll be teaching for two or three years (Teach First route). After which, I'll hopefully be undertaking a full-time masters, and upon completion then apply for a PhD - if my grades and imagination allow me to do so.

    Start uni in September for Aerospace Engineering, do a Masters, work my way to becoming a chartered engineer and fund my training to become a commercial airline pilot (This will almost definitely take longer than 5 years, but saving to self-fund the training starts within the 5 years).

    Now you are just making me nervous. Be right back, re-calibrating my life ambitions to instead culminate in my fridge being properly organised.

    A disorganised fridge doesn't automatically mean a disorganised life, ours isnt great but the rest of the house is tidy:P

    Learn all the skills I don't know
    Be more active (aim for that six-pack!)
    Get promoted or a better job
    Save as much money as I possibly can (living in London, buying a house is no longer part of my realistic dreams )
    Meet someone and finally settle down, heck I might even have a kid now. Why not - recent events in life have made me open my eyes a bit as to what I might need in life...

    are you set on staying in london then? I decided years ago to stay northern so i could afford a house. I guess sometimes people don't realise what they want out of life until certain things hit them on the head metaphorically.

    Finish my A-Levels (finally) this summer, go to university this September to study psychology, complete the placement year in three years time and apply for the masters following my degree to ensure a good chance for the doctorate.

    I have contemplated it many times, the houses are ridiculously cheap in places like Scotland. But then people are paying more for the area and life aren't they than the home.
    And thats the catch-22 for me too. I would love nothing more than to own my own home but I am a Londoner born and bred, all my friends, family and memories are here. I just can't see myself living anywhere else I'm afraid. Why the hell wasn't I born and raised in a cheaper area? So damn annoying!

    What uni you thinking of applying to? I want to do similar and I've applied to UoB, hoping to get in the MSci course after my first year if I get all firsts
