My 5 Year Plan Didn't Work and I'm Okay With It

by - Friday, August 23, 2019

Inspire by this post written by the lovely Rebecca, when I was 18 and almost done with high school, I had a whole life plan in my head: go to college, graduate with a degree, move to Europe to be with my then LDRBF, but as we all know, life just doesn't work according  to plan anymore, and that's okay.

College:
It was all part of my 5 year plan to graduate college by 22, but guess what? That didn't happen. I dropped out, worked full time for a while while taking an IT class, and then went back to school in mid 2018 at the grand old age of 23. The good thing is that I'm doing a lot better in my classes than I did when I was 18-21 and I'm so much happier now.

Relationships: 
It was in my 5 year plan to move to Holland to be with the boy I met when I was 17, but that's all been thrown in the trash as we split up back in 2016, before the Christmas period, which is a bloody crappy time to be dumped, but it did teach me the importance of being alone and how you can't trust what other people say over the internet.

What I Really Want: 
At 18, I wanted nothing more than to move out of the state I'm in, and I still look forward to moving out, but at 18, I wanted to live in London or Europe. Now, I just want to be close to my family who all live in Texas and I also want to be happy with what I'm doing in life. I just want to create things while being able to live comfortably.

Friendships:
When I started college, I just accepted that I was better off alone and didn't even attempt to make any friends as I was just hateful and spiteful of everyone. I had been backstabbed and walked on so many times, but then I met some pretty rad people online and it changed the way I think about people. They taught me that even though some people will still try to backstab you, not everyone will.

Have you ever had a five year plan?
