Plan B

We thought planning for the future is easy. And by 'we', I mean me and Edna. Our plan was to finish school, get a job and be rich and famous. Sounds easy. Filling in the details is hard. Like, what course to take up in college, what job, what struggles may I encounter... Things like that. Because you can't just go with the flow, you have to be smart. We have to be smart. I have to be smart. I have to think of a good strategy to reach my goal.


All I want is to help my parents. They've done so much for me and I want them to be of proud. I want to have a job that will be the pride of the family or maybe, a success in all I've been through. I don't want to be an embarrassment to my friends. They expect much from me. I don't want to be the saleslady that greets her high school crush 'Good Morning, Sir. May I help you?'. No. I'd rather have it the other way around because I want people to look up to me and see me as their role model and say, ' That girl is an idol!' But I'll still have the feeling of being humble, though. I don't want to be mean to people.

Life. Is. Hard. Planning for it is difficult. I thought life was all about romance and adventure. But no, it's full of crossroads. Full of bumps and humps. You have to stop for gas and check your tires and engines all the time. And you'll encounter an hitchhiker. And a thief. To sum it all up, Life is a highway. And highways have dead ends. You have to make a U-turn to go the right way. I just can't wait for the moment in my life I'll say:

And if my life turns out to be okay, well, good. I owe it to the people around me anyway.
