Getting a little bit bored - feel like I'm going nowhere so thought I'd draw one up. Has anyone else got one? If so what is it?

Cheers

3 years is an age, far too many unknown variables to plan in any detail.

it's not really when you are thinking about long-term goals, i.e. getting a promotion, moving to another country, upsizing your house etc. etc.

If anything, 3 years is a little short, I always think in terms of the next 5 years.

Year 1

Gain work experience through science related job roles, voluntary work at specialist science school, attempt to find a science related career with a future. Apply for PGCE in Secondary science.

Year 2

Either start the PGCE in Bristol / Bath or continue in job and start renting flat in Bristol.

Year 3

Start job teaching and start renting in Bristol or continue with job.


After this, consider New Zealand after gaining a year or two of experience and some savings or stay put.

Kind of. I've got the start and the end planned but not the bit in the middle.

Currently I've got 1 year to go at uni, if I don't get a 1st then the year has been a waste. While going join a couple of social clubs and attend al the events. Then once I graduate I'm going to spend a month or 2 travelling to asia again, depending who I can drag along with me or just go it alone. I'll be applying for jobs when I return, which is where it gets a bit uncertain.

End result is in 3 years time I'll have my own place and a job but where that will be remains to be seen :D

I've started going the gym again so aiming to keep that up, and I've stopped drinking for the time being so I'll just see how that goes too. 3 years for both would be good I feel.
