Five in Five

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 12 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

As my official time as student nears its end, I’ve been thinking about how I want continue my life.
Of course, I will be working after I graduate. However, It’s hard for me to imagine a time when I didn’t have school, save those fleeting moments during the summer.

Over the last few semesters, I’ve grown to appreciate knowledge and the process of acquiring it. And I don’t think I’m ready to stop yet. I hope I’m never ready to stop learning.

Thus, I’m launching a new project: Five in Five – Five things I want to do in the five years after I graduate. I’ll admit, the list is pretty aggressive, but I think it’s doable.

However, the keyword here is “want.” I want to complete these things because I think they are interesting and I feel they will be useful. That being said, I’m not sure if I will be able to complete it all within five years and, even then, I’m not even sure if I want to complete all things I’ve laid out.

I’ve ordered the list is roughly the order I plan to complete them in:

  1. Travel the World
  2. Pilot’s license
  3. Certified Emergency Medical Technician (EMT)
  4. Masters Degree
  5. Professional Engineer

As always, keep it tuned here for all the fun. Soon, I’ll be doing a lot of talking, asking, and planning about the first part of my Five in Five: Traveling the World.

    1. I actually don’t know yet. It could be few cities, a few countries, or a few continents. You are right, the world is a pretty big place and that’s one of the things I need to figure out: how big a bite do I really want to take?

      1. Well, keep me in the loop, if you don’t mind. If you ended up doing something relatively low-cost, like driving around the US (which is actually really fun) I would probably be interested. Other than that I’d have to really take a close look at my financial situation.

  1. Everything in the list is significative,your life in the following five years will be fulfilling.
    As to me,there is a project as well: one in three.I wish that i could further my education abroad after getting my master’s degree in China.So, in the next three years,i need to do so many things: taking the TOEFL exam and GRE,researches and publishing papers in professional core periodical.It must be hard time to me.
    And,i will be here and read your articles then share your joys.
