What's my outlook on the future.
The year 2018 will make twenty years since I graduated from high school. I think Iwill probably be still living here in Sarasota. I will be quite comfortable with myliving situation, meaning that I will be married to Paul Smith. We will have one child:Linda Treasa Smith, who at that point will be three-years-old and a little devil. Paul isa sweet guy; he will do anything for anyone. He is six feet tall and built well. He has baby blue eyes and blond hair. We will have been together for five years and will behappy together--this is forever.

I even graduatedwith 23 college credits to apply to my college education based on my AP test scores, whichallowed me to graduate a semester early with my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology.I made sure to take a variety of classes to see what truly caught my interest.“Intro to Psychology” grabbed me immediately which made declaring my major very easy. In pursuit of my degree at C.W. Post I kept my grades high enough to stay in the Honors Programthrough the entirety of my college career. Along with the Honors and Writing Across theCurriculum classes I took, I also completed a 50 page research paper during my final twosemesters. I chose the topic of love and focused on the concept of Love Styles. I chose love as atopic for my thesis because I have always been fascinated with relationships and how couplesinteract with each other. The concept itself intrigues me and I’ve always had a desire to learnmore about it, as both a concept and an emotion.After graduating a semester early with a 3.74 GPA and a Bachelor of Arts degree, I cameto a crossroads where I needed to decide if I wanted to immediately pursue grad school or takesome time off. I opted to take a year off and to this day feel I made the correct decision. I used

My current goal is focused on getting a Masters degree and entering the field of psychology as a professional. I have a desire to become a therapist, specifically in the field of couples and marriagecounseling. With my interest in the concept of love comes a need to help people with their issues and Ifeel that my talents and dedication will aide me greatly in this pursuit. My biggest goal in terms of mycareer would include eventually having my own private practice, however life always has a way of creating new opportunities and I refuse to stay completely rigid in my plans. At this point in time my pathleads me towards my Masters, and where I go from there will be carefully weighed as time goes on, athought process that has always proven to be beneficial.Throughout my life I have worked hard for what I have obtained, and I have learned from all of the experiences I have encountered. I have a clear goal in terms of my future and I am working hard toachieve it. My immediate future is obtainable and I will work hard for it, yet down the road I will let eachnew experience guide me for my truly long term goals. For now, I know where I am and the path I wishto go down, and although my mind is flexible, my desires are steadfast
All of the experiences, difficulties and hardships that I have encountered during my life havehelped shape me into the person I am today; from simply going to school and meeting new people, toaiding a sick mother and helping raise my younger brother, each day...
