My Future (essay)

When I grow up, I want to be a famous chemist. I will get various acknowledgments and diplomas. 

For a while, I will lecture chemistry at university until I found my own laboratory where I will do various experiments. I hope that I will create new medicines and improve the old ones. My biggest success will be the discovery of two new elements which will help all chemists in the future to understand better some reactions. One will be named after me and another after my hometown - Kikinda. 

For all these discoveries I will be rewarded a Nobel Prize and the best universities will be named after me.

Mankind will be grateful to me for making their lives easier and showing them a new view on chemistry.

I’ve got one brother, Srđan, who is now sixteen. He is at high school now, studying medicine.

My mum, Mara, has got brown eyes and curly hair. She is a nurse in our town hospital. My dad, Aleksandar, is a machine engineer, and he has got brown eyes and dark hair.

I’ve got two aunts and one uncle. Aunt Mira, dad’s younger sister, hasn’t got a husband. She lives with my grandparents.

Mum’s older sister, auntie Mira, has got a husband, Milan. They work in the same office for administration documents. They have a son, Žarko, who is now eleven. He is very clever. Once, when I went to see him, he was making the rail for his wooden car. I love him because he is very interesting and fun. He has got brown eyes and long brown hair.

And then, the grandparents. Dad’s parents – grandma Spasa and grandpa Momčilo are very interesting. They live next to me and I can see them when I want to.

On my mother’s side I have got grandma Nada. She is a very good person and cook too.
I can write a hundred more papers because they are all interesting and fun. I love them and I hope they love me too.

I’m the youngest child in my family. 

I’ve got an older brother. His name is Ognjen, and he is eighteen now. He is at high school now.

My parents’ names are Đurica and Gordana. My father works in a family firm ‘Amentes’ and my mum is a teacher. When I was younger, my mum and I went to school at the same time, but now she goes to school in the morning, and I go in the afternoon. We are together in the evenings only.

I’ve got two aunts and two uncles. Auntie Ljiljana is my mother’s older sister. Her husband is Dragan, and they have two children, a daughter, Nevena, and a son, Nikola. They are the same age as my brother and me. We cannot play together very often, because they live in Novi Sad. During summer holidays, they come to Kikinda, and it’s fun.

My father has a younger brother, Vladimir. He is married. His wife’s name is Natalija. They’ve got two children, a son, Filip, and a daughter, Simona.

All the children in my family do some sports: volleyball, football, tennis or ballet.

My grandparents are Stojan and Sava, Ljubica and Dara. I think I am a lucky child. My family is big and I still have two grandfathers and two grandmothers. They are happy when I go to see them.

When I grow up, I want to be an English teacher, because I really like English and children. Children are sometimes noisy, but they can be interesting and smart. It’s fun to work with them, because there is always something going on. When I leave school, I want to go to university, and travel to some different towns. I think I’ll go to Novi Sad, and get a job as a teacher there. I don’t want to get married too soon, at least not before I’m twenty-eight. I hope that I will meet someone in Novi Sad and get married there. I hope my partner will be good-looking and intelligent. We’ll plan to have one or two children. I want us to have twins, a boy and a girl. I don’t want to be famous or rich. I just want to be happy. So, I think that I will live in Novi Sad or some other big town. In big towns there are better jobs and interesting people. I hope my dream will come true. I’ll do my best.
