Career goals

This past one week it has dawned upon me that I'm old...
I realised this when my cousin sent me an organic soy ink birthday card on which she'd written this elaborate letter on how she was attaining her career goals and also added how she was happy her little cousin (moi) was in pursuit of her MD dreams.
Hmmmm... u know in those career developmental programmes they keep asking you where you can see yourself two years from now, five years from now, ten years from now. And how the more specific your answers are the more oriented you are in achieving those goals.
I think I answered one of these questionnaires and I gave pretty specific answers. Five years down the line I see myself in med school, ten years down the line an accomplished doctor with an MD particularly psychiatry ( thought now i personally cant stand the subject)
Its got me thinking is that it?
that's all i want to achieve in my life i know I'm at this huge turning point in my life where I'm young i feel i should be wonder woman and do something for the betterment of the community and stuff by giving back to it but i wonder how i never mentioned those things in the questionnaire because right now the question goes back to where do i really see myself or am i just painting pretty pictures for myself and shouldn't I be doing just more than what I think I should be doing... I think I'm very confused ... I need time to sort out my isssues and fast!!
