    I'm just curious to see if I was the only one to raise my expectations unrealistically high :)

    I never thought I would be where I am today. Heck I didn't even have a goal/purpose 5 years ago - I was just a kid playing soccer in the streets and school all day long.

    5 years ago I wanted to be in Disney Land. Now I just want to head to the bar.

    5 years ago I didn't even imagine that I could make a living working online. I did, however, thought that it would be sweet to work from home, and well, make a bit more than I need. So I guess I'm exactly where I thought I'll be.

    5 years ago I had just been released from a juvenile detention center and had no idea what I wanted or who I was. Now I've got a house, a car, a job, an education, my health, a fiance, and for the first time happiness. I'd say I made out pretty damn nice compared to where I was.

    No, in the last five years file sharing, tubes and hubs wiped out nearly all of my 15 year old business and had to start from scratch. The question is if I'll be where I hope to be in five years :cool:
