The 5 Past 5 Future Project

"So where were you 5 years ago?" 
A friend asked me in a coffee shop few days ago.
We both started to reflect and divulged, but the topic
quickly, naturally changed.
"So where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?"
It seems we are less interested in where we were,
and more interested in where we were going.

As each of us shared, we realized just how much we had changed in 5 years.  And as exciting as it is to look back and see how much you've grown up, it's even more exciting to look forward to what's to come.
I started looking at old photos and reflecting on all the experiences I've had in the past.  This is what the past 5 years have looked like for me:

Moved Out -Went to College - First Roommate Experience

Summer Volunteering in Kenya and Uganda 
Studying Abroad in Oxford, England
Backpacking in Europe

Moved to Seattle (and made friends for LIFE)
Became a Puppy Mom
Bought First Car
 Went to the Olympics
And one AMAZING summer

Where do I see myself in 5 years?
Epic trip to Vegas (Dec 17-19 baby!)
More Traveling
And the big stuff like buying a house
Finding a husband
Having kid(s)
Oh and I want another dog, a playmate for Gams
But I'll still be in Seattle
Hopefully still at SeattleBioMed
But also hopefully being paid more.
And duh, these people will still be in my life :)

Where have you been?  What will you do?
