Over the next 5 years I have huge future goals and plans and dreams not only for myself, my blog, but my entire future. I’ve started dreaming of things that I didn’t realise I could achieve, or would ever remain to see. Well, you see I thought I would watch bands on tour for the rest of my life drinking and drinking and not see 30. I’m 25 now, I’ve just moved into my first family home with my boyfriend and our daughter, so things have quite drastically changed in the last 3 years. So now I’m settled down I have a lot of different goals in life and I have big hopes and aspirations.
So first off, we have just as you’re reading this, we’ve just moved into our first family home. Our first house. We are renting and that’s fine by us for now. One day we will take the big leap and buy our home away from Manchester but for now, I’m excited to see what we can do. And to see how long it takes me and Reece to rip each other’s heads off trying to build flatpack. – Update – I did it. And my brother. He didn’t.
Second my career.
My non existing currently career. Before Imogen I studied Textiles and Surface Pattern design and I loved it but looking back I knew the time wasn’t right for me. I would love to get back into design and get creative again because it was such a great passion of mine and I would love to turn it into full self employment and make a living from it.
Third, oh gosh the K word.
Kids. So I never thought I would ever actually have children in my lifetime and I never thought I would actually discuss it. I have a daughter already and you know what, she turned my world around and I wouldn’t change it a single bit. Not an inch. But would I have more? Maybe. Maybe one day when we’re ready but for now, we’re going to keep on truckin’.
One big thing that I want to happen in the next year is to get engaged. Me and R have openly talked about getting engaged and having a long engagement for us to be married. It would’ve been sooner but it’s just down to where we were, we wanted to be settled and now that’s finally happening it means that my obsession with Say Yes To The Dress will probably get a heck of a lot worse. I’d like to save up for a big adventure after however we get married so a long engagement isn’t an issue to us.
For my blog?
I would love to say that I was in the position to work from home as a blogger, that would be the dream but do I expect it? No. Do I hope and will try and push it to make it real? Yep you bet. Currently my blog has only just started so over the next 5 years I would love to see where it takes me.
Being a huge stationery junkie and print design lover I would love to be in 5 years owning my own line and selling it alongside other amazing bloggers/designers I’ve become friends with. I feel like I would actually know what to make that most of us are looking for in stationery considering how big my hoarding collection is getting.
Another dream is to travel.
Everyone dreams about getting out of the dreary sites of the UK with our predictable rain/ grey skies/ lack of summer. But I don’t dream of the sun. I dream of exploring parts of the USA and Japan and Finland. Maybe one day it will happen and maybe it won’t but I would just love to go exploring and taste all the different food on offer and relax with a coffee outside a cafe.
Maybe even vlog. I’ve uhmm-ed and aahhh-ed at vlogging. I’ve always wanted to do it for years and I’ve always felt like, ‘why would people watch me’ but I guess you’ll never know. I want to one day start and then there’s memories for us all to look back on, especially Imogen when she’s older.
And that’s all I can think of at the top of my head right now. A lot of them if not all of them are actually attainable. So let’s see where this takes us.
Until next time,
