21 Answers to the Question: What are You Planning on Doing In Your Future?

THIS QUESTION. I have lost count of the hundreds of times I've been asked this...all within the last couple years of my life. Since most of you all are high school age, you might actually find some of this post helpful as well as entertaining. For that reason, I tried to sprinkle a few honest answers among the what-we-WISH-we-could-say answers. ;) Hope you enjoy!

1: "Nothing. Obviously."


3: "Lots of big, important things." (If they ask you to be more specific, see answer 6, 8, and 13.)

4: "I'm really hoping God comes back before I have to worry about that."

5: "Define planning."

6: "Doing college, getting married, having kids, and then dying at a ripe old age."

7: "Wouldn't you like know..."

8: "Cool stuff. Like sleeping."

9: "I don't really want to talk about it right now."

10: "Probably some point."

11: *internal screaming* Or external screaming for that matter. Your choice.

12: "Still thinking about that one." 

13: "Becoming a rich and famous _____________."

14: "I have NO IDEA." 

15: "How old are you and how much do you weigh? You don't have to answer my questions if I don't have to answer yours."


17: "Reading, writing, and 'rithmatic."

18: "Uh...."

19: "COOKIES!" (If you can say it in Cookie Monster's voice, all the better)

20: "I want to become a better person."

21: "Whatever God leads me to do." 


Out of curiosity (and since I'll eventually run out of questions to answer if I'm going to keep this up every month) what are some FAQs you've been asked during your life that you want me to answer? Let me know in your comment and you might see them answered 21 times in a future post. ;) 


  1. Why does your family have so many children? XD

  2. Are they all yours? xD We have the most sarcastic answers to this, but I'd love some more. ;P
    I loved these! Especially #7. ;) Though it's looking like I'll *actually* have an answer this year, since I'm going to begin working on my bachelor of science in nursing. I'm . . . internally screaming right now.
    But I so love these! I can't wait till the next one!

    1. Haha, YES. Oh goodness. About five retorts popped to mind right after reading your comment. XD
      *joins your internal screaming* OH MY WORD THAT IS SO EXCITING!!!! *hugs* Have some cookies. ;)
      So glad you're enjoying! I must say, I have a lot of fun putting them together. ^_^

  3. Yes! These lists! I love these lists.

    Oh gosh, um... What college do you go to? Is one I get a lot, but I'm tall for my age. What are you writing about/what's your book about? Is a frequent and hard one.

    1. Aw, thanks! So glad you're enjoying them! ^_^
      Oh my yes. Those ones are all really good. Definitely putting those on the list of lists. XD

  4. *dies laughing* I love these posts. XD

  5. Oh my word... #15... I literally cannot right now I'm laughing too hard

    1. I really wish I could actually USE that one on somebody...but I will restrain myself. *cough*

  6. This was a fun post, it made me laugh! I've been asked a lot of these questions and have learned to roll with it. I like to answer questions like this "SO Yeah what do you want to do with your life? what are your future goals?" with a totally serious face and go "My Future goal is to rule the whole world!! AHAHAHA!!"

    1. Ah, Marrock MacIntyre, the evil genius that took over the world in 2035. I used to know him back when he followed my blog...
      Seriously though, that is an awesome answer! XD

  7. #4 and #15 got me the best!! LOL I don't know how you always come up with such great answers but I need to start writing these down for when I'm out and about and get asked something like that hahah

    1. XD I can only hope you were able to find something remotely helpful among my answers. Enjoy the facial expressions. ;)

  8. *dies* this. is. awesome. AND SO TRUE!!!! I have given a few of these responses and will definitely give some of the others XD

    I lately have been asked- now that I will be attending college- "what will you be studying" as in like what will I major in. I'm gonna be there for 4 years. and I'm only 17. Give me time please. lol. And now all my none christian people in my life are encouraging me to go and have "an experience" and stuff. *sigh*

    "What is your dream job" To have free money so I can write books whenever I want and travel. #solazy lol ;p

    1. Thanks! ;) So glad you enjoyed! Those are some good questions...I'll be sure to keep them in mind for a future post. :P

  9. Hahahahaha why didn't I see this earlier?! For some reason this never showed up in my feed!

    "Lots of big, important things"--ME ALL THE TIME
    "Cool stuff. Like sleeping" --ALSO ME

    oh I love this post XD

    1. I don't know why it didn't show up...but I'm glad you found it! Hopefully no other blog posts do that. ;)
      So glad you enjoyed! (The ones you mentioned are also favorites of mine. XD) Thanks so much for your comment!

  10. I'm a senior and I AM TOTALLY SUPER TIRED OF THIS ALL QUESTION. It's like all the adults I know who aren't my teachers or my parents have no idea what else to talk to me about (ideas: what I do with my time, like now. (answer: mainly homework but hey whatever), or how I feel about politics (yes, I am 17 and capable of opinions), or the weather). Anyway thank you for this post because yes it is too true.
