Maybe it's the realization that in 5 years I'll be 33... My 18 year old self is really sad about that one. It also means thinking about really really adult decisions (yes I know I AM an adult but I mean real stuff). Part of my 5 year plan would man graduating grad school which entails finishing my thesis. Also it brings up questions... Do I want to move in 5 years? Yes. Do I want to be married in 5 years? Most likely... Maybe. Marriage?! Do I want kids in 5 years?! I have NO clue!!!
I'd like to have a great start at my career in 5 years. In fact come 2015 I'll be applying for TV writing fellowships. Which means I may be moving to LA in 5 years. I also want to start teaching after I graduate. Which means I'll be teaching in 5 years... Whoa!
I guess I have half a plan. Kind of. I don't have a 5 year plan for this site... I'm still trying to get back into the rhythm of writing every day. I don't really have a 5 year plan for my screenwriting. I guess a smart Dana could say 5 screenplays (full length) in 5 years. I do know I want to write something good enough to enter into screenwriting contests and festivals. Why not right?
5 years is a really long time but can flash by so quick. I started grad school about 4 years ago... Yeah that's hard to believe. I started this blog 3 years ago. So 5 years isn't that long is it? Maybe I'll get brave and write out a 5 year plan. What do I have to lose?
