LIFE GOALS

BY DAWI LAWRENCE ABRAHAM

SEPTEMBER 27, 2018

THE FOLLOWING ARE MY REAL LIFE GOALS FOR THE NEXT TEN YEARS


ALTHOUGH I HAVE A BACHELOR OF SCIENCE DEGREE IN ECONOMICS AND A MASTER OF PLANNING DEGREE, I NEED TO LEARN THE BASICS OF COMPUTER SCIENCE TO GET WHERE I NEED TO BE IN TEN YEARS TIME OR LESS. A WORK PLACE IN RESEARCH WHERE I GET TO SHOW MY TRUE ABILITIES TO MYSELF AND THE WORLD.


BEFORE I START ANYTHING ELSE, I HAVE TO MAKE SURE THAT I APPLY TO A GOVERNMENT PENSION PLAN THAT WILL ALLOW ME TO LIVE THE REST OF MY DAYS IN EASE WHILE LIVING COMFORTABLY. I WILL START THE PROCESS OCTOBER OF THIS YEAR.


I HAVE A FRIEND IN MINSK THAT I HAVE BEEN WANTING TO MEET FOR THE LONGEST TIME. FOR THIS UPCOMING NEW YEAR HOLIDAY, I WANT TO GO TO BELARUS AND EXPLORE THE POSSIBILITY OF HAVING HER AS A BUSINESS PARTNER.


AND THE COMPUTER SCIENCE BACHELOR OF SCIENCE APPLICATION DEADLINE FOR SUMMER SEMESTER AT THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA IS MARCH 4 AND I AM NOT PLANNING ON MISSING IT.


FOR THAT, 15 CREDITS FOR EACH OF THE THREE SEMESTERS IN A YEAR, FOR THREE CONSECUTIVE YEARS. THE PROGRAM MUST BE COMPLETED WHILE HOLDING MY CURRENT OCCUPATIONAL POSITION OF RESEARCH ASSISTANT.


AFTER THE THREE YEARS MARK, I CAN REQUEST FROM MY COMPANY FINANCIAL BACKING FOR PURSUING HIGHER EDUCATION IN THE STATES. THIS IS POSSIBLE IF I CAN PROVIDE A GUARANTEE TO THE COMPANY THAT I WILL WORK WITH THEM WHEN I AM DONE FOR A SET DURATION OF YEARS. ALL THIS NEEDS TO BE MADE TO FOCUS MY ENERGY AFTERWARDS ON PURSUING COMPUTER SCIENCE RELATED GRADUATE STUDIES WITH CARNEGIE MELLON. THE TOP OF THE TOP OF SCHOOLS WORLDWIDE IN MY FIELD ON INTEREST.


AFTER THE FIVE YEARS MARK, I WILL BEGIN TO MORTGAGE MY OWN HOME IN THE STATES. I AM THINKING SEATTLE, MYRTLE BEACH, BIG SUR, OR LOS ANGELES AS THE PERFECT LOCATION FOR MY NEW ABODE.


AFTER THE SIX YEARS MARK, I CAN THEN BEGIN MY PHD RESEARCH IN CARNEGIE MELLON IN SUBJECTS RANGING FROM ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE TO QUANTUM COMPUTING AND MACHINE LEARNING.


AFTER ALL THIS IS COMPLETE BY THE NINE YEARS MARK, AND THE MANDATORY SERVICE DURATION WITH MY COMPANY HAS PASSED, I CAN THEN FINALLY JOIN THE QUANTUM ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE LAB TEAM WITH GOOGLE RESEARCH AND NASA. A PLACE WHERE I BELIEVE I WILL SERVE MY FUNCTION IN SOCIETY PROPERLY.


IF I FEEL LIKE I HAVE HAD ENOUGH WITH WORK ALREADY AFTER THE TEN YEARS MARK, I CAN RETIRE AND BEGIN TO LIVE OFF OF MY GENEROUS PENSION PLAN IN MY PERSONALLY OWNED HOUSE IN THE UNITED STATES.
