Marriage


At what age did you think you would get married: 25


Reality: will be 29


How long did you imagine yourself being engaged: 10-12 months


Reality: 22 months


Is your husband anything that you thought he'd be: NO!  Not on the surface, anyway.  I imagined someone athletic who liked to sing, dance, play sports, etc.  He does NONE of those things!  He doesn't even aspire to make a lot of money!  Funny how love works....


 


Career


What did you imagine yourself doing (or go to college for): I went to college hoping to become a lawyer.


Reality: I am a legislative assistant with the state assembly.


Do you see yourself staying in that role/field/career direction: I'm crossing my fingers and praying that I can stay!  My boss is termed out, so I have to find a new assemblymember to work for.


 


Home


Whether you own or not, what are the three things you want in your dream home: somewhere quiet to sit and read, a separate room to do work/wrap gifts/do crafts (an office, I guess), lots of light


If you own, Reality: FI and I currently own a 700 sq ft condo.

Home


Whether you own or not, what are the three things you want in your dream home: large piece of land, gleaming hardwood floors and travertile or italian marble tile, and a gorgeous kitchen  with granite. everywhere. lol


If you own, Reality: we're shacked up in a two bedroom apartment. It's clean and cozy and one day we'll look back and smile :)
