I am a third year theatre student and I am just now taking a hard look at my life and what I need to do.
If I were to imagine the next 5 years with my current life, it would include:
-graduating & getting a car
-working at a paid internship
-landing a job at the place I interned and becoming engaged
-getting promoted, doing theatre outside of work and moving in with my fiance
Although it seems pretty ordinary, I have the resources to accomplish it, I like it, I’m a little confident and it is true to myself.
If everything completely changed, I would:
-major in women studies
-work at an organization that helps abused women
-become involved with organizations that fight for women’s rights
-travel the world with the organization
-tour college campuses to discuss women’s rights.
The resources to accomplish this is pretty high since I already attend college and I think I have an idea of where to start. I do enjoy it, I am pretty confident I could do it (although I am not confident it would make money) and it is true to me.
Now. If money or image wasn’t an issue, I would,
-be cast as Belle in Beauty and the Beast on Broadway, get married, buy a house for me and my closest family
-be paid to watch movies and plays, buy Disneyland park but not have to run anything
-have kids and be a badass roller derby athlete
-tour the world with my family
-hold concerts where I only sing my favorite songs and people actually pay to see it.
I love this idea the most and it is the most true to me but my resources and confidence is extremely low.
I was so motivated by David Evan’s presentation that I bought his book on Amazon and I can’t wait to continue to grow and design my life!
