In Ten Years I Hope...

All answers - short and long, honest or funny - will be accepted.
  1. I'm 25 and currently work on The List App.
    At 35 I obviously hope The List App will still be thriving. I expect to be married with a kid or 2. Would be happy to be living in London or somewhere without incessant sun. I'd like to have written something that was published - a book, an article, a Shouts And Murmurs (take note @newyorker) - and still have all my hair.
  2. I'm who I want to be
    The gap between my wants and self can feel big. I'm catching up. But it's scary and inherently impossible.

  3. The U.S. will no longer be at war in Afghanistan...or Iraq...or Syria...or anywhere else.
