Where do you see yourself in 2020?

2020 struck me as a lyric from a long forgotten song, but I am probably wrong. The question is general and all answers are pertinent. The question is not based on any on-going studies, financial forecasts or predictions by bean counters. It is a question of pure curiosity to anyone who wishes to respond.

2020... hmmmm.... in 12 years?? Hmmm.... perhaps in an Old Age Home in Victoria, if I'm lucky!!

Where would you be, and what would you be doing?
Let me guess, ... you'll still be riding your bike and checking your watch!!

Hope U R doing ok.

I will be getting real old, but I can't imagine myself any different than I am right now, so
I will be here, golfing, walking all over the place, and watching lots of hockey.
My beautiful chocolate lab 'Joe' obviously won't be with me, very sad, but I will have
another chocolate lab by my side, and of course, a cat as well, and hopefully my husband
will still be around too.

I went and watched a live play here in courtenay tonight called ' honk ', the story of the
ugly duckling, (not just for children)the group is called COVAL, and they put a play on every spring and xmas season. My
daughter plays her flute in the little musical group which accompanies the play, and it is
delightful, so I will be doing that in 2020 as well.
She plays in many different performances around the comox valley, and I go to every one,
once, to support her, and enjoy the performances.

Hey, God, what are you hmmm-ing about?? Do you have other plans for us? Well, I'm ready for change any time! Send me a loving companion, so I won't feel so bored anymore.
Oops,...no, forget that!! I love my freedom too much! I'm happy, damn it!! -- I've got CC and nice friends!

Hi, Talloola, your present life sounds lovely. You are still in the middle of it. Enjoy it, count your blessings!

Oh, what a year to zero in on. 2020, and I'll be turning 41. My oldest will be turning, 20! My youngest, 19. They should be leaving the nest, or at the very least, flying on their own and helping keep the nest tidy. lol. I'm hoping that by then I will be done school, and working in some area of psychology. I always thought I had a calling to grief counseling, but, every new unit I take broadens my interest. Right now I'm leaning toward the study of psychoneuroimmunology. Fascinating stuff.

Eureka! Every time I drive across Manitoulin Island I get this intense deja vu.... That's where I've seen these hills (well not these, but hills just like them) Quinte Peninsula!

Where will I be in 2020? If I'm still here, I'll still be here (but with some published novels)

Woof!

I'll still be looking for good places to bury the bodies. Will need to be more creative.

Kreskin, if you're thinking of doing the deed here's a tip from a satisfied Tide customer. Remember, I will not be an accomplice to your actions.


Dear Tide:
I am writing to say what an excellent product you have! I've used it all of my married life, as my Mom always told me it was the best. Now that I am in my fifties I find it even better! In fact, about a month ago, I spilled some red wine on my new white blouse. My inconsiderate and uncaring husband started to belittle me about how clumsy I was, and generally started becoming a pain in the neck. One thing led to another and somehow I ended up with his blood on my new white blouse! I grabbed my bottle of Tide with bleach alternative, and to my surprise and satisfaction, all of the stains came out! In fact, the stains came out so well the detectives who came by yesterday told me that the DNA tests on my blouse were negative and then my attorney called and said that I was no longer considered a suspect in the disappearance of my husband.
What a relief! Going through menopause is bad enough without being a murder suspect! I thank you, once again, for having a great product.
Well, gotta go, have to write to the Hefty bag people.

Now that you mention it ... muskeg has a lot to do with mine. Kinda like a burial at sea....

Woof!

Odd. I haven't read one post here mentioning if basic Human Survival might still be what we experience today. Global warming is widely accepted and an alarming reality. The Earth's axis has shifted from the 23 degree angle to a 49 degree angle. This already impacts our resources to fresh water, causes our climate extremes, and global weather disasters.
http://www.earth-policy.org/Books/PB3/index.htm

Where will I be in 2020?? I hope I'm thankful for breatheable air, clean drinking water, and able to withstand the extremes of summer heat and winter cold.
Then again this could all be "political nonsence" and I'll be living on my own Island in the South Pacific and drinking Tequilla's!

Where'd you get that spectacularly wrong bit of misinformation? I'm pretty sure I'd have noticed that, and so would a lot of other people. I spend a fair bit of time admiring the night sky, and I'd have noticed a 26 degree shift in the position of all the stars. I like to have a drink of an evening, but there's not enough scotch in the world to make me miss that.

Where will you take this course, Karrie? My daughter was admitted to Southwestern Medical School in order to take some of the offbeat courses related to her major, such as epidemiological statistics. I would be very interested in psychoneuroimmunology myself, but I 2020, I'll be dead. One of the hardest courses I ever took was physiological psychology. With no biology background, it was tough, especially since it was taught by a doctor.

Hi, Dexter;
the stars shift with the earth because of the gravity that holds them! That's why you haven't noticed, eh?
Didn't Safari put a link with it? I've been too lazy tonight reading it.

Eh, forgot to answer the OP's question. The best laid plans...

In 2020, I expect to be right where I am now, living in the same place--I hate moving, the next move is going to be to the graveyard--with the same hot babe, and doing the same stuff: building cabinets and furniture and model ships, reading, thinking, writing, posting at CC or whatever it's morphed into by then, making music, messing with computers, gardening... I'll probably be walking more though, 'cause gas will be $8 a litre, and that's probably a good thing. The walking I mean, not the price of gas. I'll be pensioned off, and the exercise will be good for me. Actually I should probably be walking more now, but even being well into my 50s I don't have any health issues, which is fairly unusual, so I don't yet feel any urgency about that. Blessings upon my parents for an extraordinary genetic endowment.

And I hope I'll be a grandfather.

I don't even know who offters it to tell the truth. I'm currently working through the Athabasca University, but, I want to go to Grant MacCewan come January. I'll just keep working on my BA in Psych for the moment.

Obviously you haven't read the March/April edition of Canadian Alive Magazine nor National Geographic's Green Guide Magazine. With April 22nd being Earth Day, many Researchers, Enviromentalists, and other Agencies have discussed the many changes to our Earth and it's numerous devasting effects resulting from those changes.
Here's another link detailing the Earths' Axis shifts.
http://axischange.wordpress.com/2007...%94-wordpress/

If you still believe it's "spectacularily wrong information", I have more research links from NASA, Environment Canada and other reputable sources. They can't all be "wrong".
