Dear 25-Year-Old Me…


I’m currently 20 and in my final year of university. I am also in a state of wanting to be in the past yet wanting to be in the future. I kind of wish I was still 15 yet can’t wait to graduate and get on with my life. I have written a list of things that I hope for the future:

  1. I hope you are less insecure. I am currently very insecure about every aspect of my life when that is completely ridiculous. I worry that everyone hates me and finds me absolutely repulsive. I am working on it and would love it if in 5 years’ time I am confident, comfortable in my own skin and able to be myself around others.
  2. I hope you have a super cool job that you love most of the time. At the moment I want to edit documentaries so I will probably need to learn Avid this year. Can I use Avid now? Is there another editing software out there that’s even better? I really hope I am successful in the future.
  3. I hope you are truly happy. I’m not sure if I have ever been truly happy so this is the thing that I wish for the most. I want to be happy and content with life. I have days where I am happy and life seems to be going well but there’s usually something that comes along to ruin it. Life isn’t that bad and I don’t want to spend it being miserable.
  4. I hope you have a dog. PLEASE tell me you have a dog! I want one soooo badly and they make everything better. If you don’t have a dog, please have a kitty or a rabbit. I just love fluffy animals and want them all.
  5. I hope you managed to live near London. At the moment I’m hoping to live near Reading area so I hope I am successful in that. I also hope that I get a nice place to live that is comfortable and I can decorate is any way that I want within reason obviously. I would like a house with a study room so that I can work from home especially as I am probably going to have to freelance.
  6. I hope everything works out with you and Dan. He’s pretty cool and he is my best friend. Maybe I’ll be engaged by then or even married? I really hope we get to live together and have cute puppies or kitties. I hope we have managed to go on that trip to Canada that we often talk about.

So much is going to happen in the next 5 years. I’m going to graduate, potentially buy/rent my first home, get my first proper job etc. I am so excited and scared for what the future has to come. I know that no matter what happens, everything will work out in the end and it may take some time but I will get to where I want to be at some point. What things do you wish to happen in the next 5 years? Let me know in the comments.

  1. This might actually inspire me to do something similar (I am 24 already, so it’d be to my 30 year old self, but the idea in itself is great!). I hope you read this when you’re 25 and you’re happy how your life turned out 🙂 i’ll definitely credit you if I do write a similar post.
    Great one!

  2. As someone in my mid-30’s all I can say is these things will come. Why? Because most of them are CHOICES!! There will come a day when you’ll just be like “I give zero F*cks” and suddenly you’re more secure. That same day you will go out and get a rescue puppy, move to London, be SUPER happy about the previous choices and land your perfect job. Boom. List achieved! Then you’ll be on to the next list 🙂

  3. I live in Canada, and it is beautiful here… I hope you come to visit also… and I really hope you get a dog, you won’t regret it, especially if you have lots of time to spend with one 🙂
