    go through / have an inkling / in store for

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expressions in bold in the following excerpt from an English text?

    That vision of hell that you people have on Earth, fire and brimstone stuff? Nothing compared to what I went through! How I wished I had an inkling of what was in store for me during my years in your world!

    go through = undergo

    have an inkling = have a mental picture, have a notion about, have an idea

    in store for = awaiting, lie ahead, lie just round the corner, I am faced with

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.
