DailyBlog: Where Will I Be In Five Years?

*** The first three books in my six-part dystopian series have officially made their way out into the world! Check them out!
For the sake of blogging, self-exploration, and contemplation, I’ve been slowly making my way through answering questions from this list

Today’s Question: Based on you current daily actions and routines, where would you expect to be in five years?

I’m not a fan of these questions to be honest, they always seem like they breed pessimism and self-disappointment. Are we ever really where we thought we’d be or where we’d expect to be? Sometimes life throws a huge wrench in your idealistic plans and you plummet into a shitstorm, other times, unexpectedly positive things happen and you end up in a place you never really thought you’d be, but you’re so glad to be there.

Despite the epic disaster of the world around us, I’m in a good place in life right now. I love my job, it pays my bills (sure I wish I had even more $ LOL but in all honestly it’s fine), a few books published which was always one of my biggest life ambitions, a horse, a few good close friends, and a ton of fluffy animals that never cease to entertain me.

So where do I see myself in five years if there aren’t unexpected curveballs? I hope I’ll still be working for the same organization. I hope I’ll have more books published. Maybe my dog’s Instagram will blow up and they’ll be internet stars, LOL. (Probably not, but that would be fun!) In all honesty I hope my life doesn’t change much over the next five years because I don’t want to lose the good things I have, and although awesome raises would be nice (raises that supercede the rising cost of living, when in all reality they just match it and that’s on a good year), I’m pretty much satisfied. How many people can say that?
