Life at Ninety
At first, this assignment seemed incredibly easy: just imagine myself in 73 years. But once i actually began thinking about it, I realized how many directions my life could possibly take. After a fair amount of thought and a few facebook breaks in the process, I finally decided what my life would be like when I am the ripe age of ninety. At the age of ninety, I will have graduated from college, most likely at the University of Utah, I will probably become an eye surgeon and work with Doctors Without Borders, and travel as much as I can. I hope that by ninety I have contributed a considerable amount of time to help those in need, aiding those affected by natural disaster and poverty. I'd like to have found the cure for AIDS or cancer, or have made some significant advances in medicine or health. By ninety, I hope to be married and have a family. At the same time, however, I can see myself living an entirely different life. I imagine myself as an English professor and teaching yoga part time, or as an animal conservationalist working in Africa. In the end, my future is unknown, teeming with the possibility of both great success and great failure. I know in the end, though, that I won't regret a second of it and I'll always cherish the people I have around me.
