After preparations & revisions, I have finally got my master plan down pat. Prepare for some EXTREME AMAZEMENT BEYOND THAT OF AMAZINGNESS!
/././././././This summer I am planning on getting a part time summer job, as well as enrolling in summertime community college classes. Half of the money I make will go into my bank account. I will be in Seattle, so this job will only be temporary. When I get back to L.A. I am planning on continuing school until March. At this time I will be participating in the Proficiency Exam/GED.
During the school year however, I plan on getting a part time job at the local bookstore. Once again, half of my pay will be put into the back for saving.
After I pass the Exam, I will start working full time & take classes at the local community college.
In December of 2005 I will get my own apartment. By then, I shall have enough money saved up to support my basic needs for my apartment; furniture, paint, food, silverware ECT. I can get furniture cheap at flea markets & I have some extra furniture already in storage. Rent is cheap by the college, only $450 A month. Utilities are paid & all I need is money for food & basic necessities.
In January, I should have everything settled out in my apartment, & my roommate (Re Yin) will be permanently dwelling with me. Now I plan on living locally in Culver City till I am about 25, then I want to move to Santa Monica or Japan (big leap I know), however, I figure it will work out if it wants to.
After two years of Community College, I will transfer to Santa Monica College & get my BA in psychology & art. I hope to one day become a famous free-lance artist. I also would like to study philosophy. I also want to get an AA in writing & literature. I was also thinking of going into my own clothing design company. I am still unsure yet. One thing I am certain of, I will precede a career in art.
Now I know for a fact my mother will respect my dicission & support me in what I choose to do with my life, my father, however, is another story. If he, or his new wife tries anything to stand in my way, then I will get emancipation & disown them permanently. This is my only choice.
Now don’t think that I have not taken this whole plan into little thought, because I haven’t. On the contrary, I have actually been planning this for quite some time & now I finally have all the minor details worked out & everything is falling into place.
I know that I will have to strive hard at what I want to accomplish, but I believe that if I really, truly, sincerely want this, (& I do) then it will come in time. I can do it. It really is not as difficult as it sounds. My inspiration is my grandmother. She moved to this country alone with hardly anything & she has come along way since then. I can only hope I can be half the woman she is.
I want her to be proud of me.
Everything should fall into play & I will keep you updated on My Plan. What I am focusing on getting now is a part time job to buy a laptop for my college studies.
Stranger Days, I will update soon,
