My Life in Ten Years

Hello my name is Josie Adams I am 19 years old and I live in Bulphan, Essex where I have lived all of my life. I live in my Mum and Dad’s house with my brother, sister and my fat, old, lazy, grey cat called Flo. My older sister Bethany is a graphic designer in London and my brother is finishing his degree in engineering at the Imperial College of London. I have just started my fresher year at Anglia University in Chelmsford studying mathematics. In my spare time I work in a pet salon in Grays which I drive to in my Union Jack mini, which I love and is called Cherry! Cherry is a dark red colour with a Union Jack design on top!

I still see many of my friends from school, in fact every other Saturday I go out partying with Ruby, Lucy, Ceri, Simran and Grace. I don’t know what I want to be yet but my friends definitely do; Ruby and Grace are planning to be fashion designers and are going to open there own shop full of their creative designs; Lucy is hard in training as she is trying to get a gold medal in the 2024 Olympics; Simran is one of the friends I don’t see much as she is often in a hot country working with her class doing archaeological digs for her studies; and Ceri is busy at the Royal Veterinary College.

My hobbies – when I get timel- outside of university and working are horse riding, dancing and netball. I have been playing netball for 14 years and am now a netball coach and run my own youth team. I love horses so much that me and my friend Ceri own our own horse named Eddie. You might have already guessed by now that I love the latest things and have my very own iPhone 15, the latest iPhone just out and it seems weird as I can still remember the very first ever iPhone all those years ago!

I have heard that my oId primary school teacher doesn’t teach in Bulphan anymore as he is now the Headmaster at Horndon-on-the-Hill School. I still can remember a lot from my primary school days, when I was in year 5 I was a school council member and in the same year I moved from class 2 to class 3. I still see my primary school a lot as I see it on the way to work and seeing my friends, now it looks so small but then seemed like my whole world. I can also remember that in year 4 I went to see the 2012 London Olympic torch flame be lit and someone run through Thurrock, I watched the Olympics almost every day and managed to see most of the medals won by Team GB.
