For the last portion of my final project I chose to do a written assignment. I did the Hopes, Dreams and Fears assignment which is to write a letter to yourself ten years in the future. I thought this would be a good way to end my project since it looks towards the future. What I tried to do with this project was to talk about the past present and future of myself pertaining to physics. With my Audio Reflection, I talked about what made me want to major in physics. My documentary and word cloud covered the present and what I am doing in physics. Finally, this talks about what I want to do in the future. I thought that this was a very good assignment and helps you put your emotions into words. This assignment is something we all do without realizing it and I think it will be cool to read in the future.

Dear Future Matt,
I hope by the time you read this everything that I am about to tell you is a reality. One day I hope that I will have a good job in the field I want to be in. I hope that I have finished graduate school and have attained a PhD. I hope that I are discovering new things and love what I am doing. I hope that I get to do what I want to do now and have my own startup company that ends up being a success. I hope that what I research will have an impact on the world and helps me make a name for myself in the scientific community. As long as my education and drive takes me where I need to go I will be fine. It has been a long road to get to where I am now and all I can do is look forward to the future. Right now, I am not sure how my life will unfold, I just know how I want it to. Sometimes, it is scary to think about the future because I think of all the things that I just don’t know. It is also exciting to think about the future because of all the great things that can happen. What’s most important is that I am happy I hope that I am successful, but I know that there is more to life than work and money. I hope that I have a family that I love and have fun with. I hope I am still close with all of my friends and we never lose touch. I know if I work hard I will get where I want to go. I just hope that ten years from now when I read this I won’t look back and have a regret.
