    I Hope

    Five years seems like forever, because five years ago I never expected to be where I am now. It was my biggest fear to become who I am today. Where would I like to be in five years? I would love to be sober, somewhere far away from this small town in Louisiana. Maybe even out of...

    How am I supposed to know?

    I don't have 2020 vision! (Casually adjusts glasses to further make myself laugh at this lame joke.)

    that truly scares me because it is so unpredictable.

    If it says to write a five word story it should

    not matter the length if the words. Five words is five words, it should not tell me to make my story longer. Always longer. It makes me wonder if the sites designer is suffering from penis envy and wishes his were longer.

    I don't know where I will be in 5 years

    but I know I damn sure won't be in the same position or circumstances that I am in this year.

    but I know where I'd like to be,

    and hopefully I'd have life turned around and not be feeling like crap and getting jealous at the drop of a hat

    And that's fine with me,

    the not knowing. Wherever I'll be, I'll be me. I may dream, but never plan that far ahead.

    I Don't Even Know Where I'll Be Five Minutes From Now

    so I think being goal oriented is highly overrated. Yes, you can lean in a certain direction but that doesn't account for the bus you're about to step in front of. Take a deep breath, hang on, and enjoy the ride. You just never know when it's going to end.

    And it does bother me.

    I'm not used to being unsure of my future but there are so many possibilities that I have no idea what and where to study... which is probably going to be my life in 5 years.

    Who Does?

    How can anyone know with certainty where they will be even the next day? Crazy unexpected things happen in life. It's folly to say I know where I will be in such and such a time. The positive outlook is great but it's really not realistic when you think about it.

    I really dont know where I'll be in the next 6

    months. My life is in ruins. I'm trying so hard to pick up the pieces, but it's hard. I chose darkness but now I'm trying to go back to the light. I just don't know how I can look my friends and family in the eye and tell them I was wrong. I betrayed them for someone I thought...

    You always expect so much out of your life.

    Have the perfect plan think things so well out. But just one minor flaw can make it all come crashing down. If you told me 5 years ago I'd be here where I am if tell you you were a liar. But the truth in the matter I got everything I used to think about at night. All my dreams...

    My whole life I have never had a clue what

    anything in my future looks like. Do people really visualize something then make it happen? Sure they say they do but how do I know? This is not me. Knowing yourself doesn't mean you can help yourself.

    Well my 2020 vision is complete blackness,

    I have never saw myself living beyond 2016 as my long time premonition is telling me my expiry date is some time next year, so where I will be in 5 years? 6 feet under with my skeleton starting to expose from my flesh.

    Starting at a very old age we get this idea in

    our head that we want to be older, because all of our role models are older. Everyone we admire on TV is older than we are and we want to be just like them, so we play make believe that we are that person. As we grow older our goals for age become older and older because we are...
