As the quirky title might suggest, I'm not normally one who thinks too
far into the future. 1-2 years is still a long time for me. Doesn't
hurt to try, though. Here goes.
In 2020, I see myself staring down at the world from my Intergalatic
Space Extreme Explorer(We'll call it ISEE, and make jokes about getting them in convenience stores), being thanked via
video satellite up-link by two potential American presidential elects for saving the Earth from an impending comet collision and being asked for personal support of their party. Alchemy will call, I'll put them both on hold and answer with 'Word.' Incidentally, I'll be able to time travel in my space-car to a time where that greeting was actually in style.
Okay. Maybe that's a little too literal.
In 2020, space cars would be nice, but I think I'd be happy to to be in school. Yes, I've already graduated high school, but I'm passionate about things I don't understand now, and I hope that is one thing that won't change. Physics, chemistry, biology, sociology, engineering, astronomy . Even if I started this year, I think I'd be okay with expanding my knowledge in school for 10 years, although I severely doubt I will be for that entire duration.
I'd like to have published a book by then, and working on a second about one of the subjects I've studied, and its practical although misunderstood application in our world(probably chemistry). The first book would probably be a science fiction novel that will become eerily close to reality in 2120. I'll also be working on projects to globalize technologies we already take advantage of while preserving the wonder of the world our ancestors carved.
No. I'm not endorsing an encased escalator to the top of Mt. Everest; you want to see it yourself, go climb it.
When the Food Crisis hits Tokyo, I'll abstain from giant monster jokes and be the guy who identifies the root of the issue, although not necessarily the person who solves the problem. I'll probably be the person who genetically re-engineers the rice plants so that they produce different flavors and colors of rice. It won't widely be accepted until 2060, when a disease that causes color-blindness strikes Eastern Asia and the Western Americas.
I'll also hope to have a cool agent name by then. Any suggestions?
