Life Plans

As I complete my last semester of college, people often ask me "What's next?"
Honestly, I don't know. I want to be a secretary somewhere, and do songwriting on the side. Will that actually happen? God only knows.
So here are a few life plans I've concocted over the past few days.

Life Plan #1: Janitor
I find a job as a janitor in a local school. While I work, I sing my latest songs - accompanying myself with various housekeeping implements (toilets, mops, etc.). The children are drawn to my singing and I soon have a large following of children which launches me into a successful career (a la Justin Bieber).

Life Plan #2: Fashion Designer
While working at the Salvation Army, I put together a display outfit as usual. A local fashion agent notices my excellent taste and hires me on the spot. I end up compiling outfits for celebrities, including one of the ten dresses Carrie Underwood wears over the course of one awards show.

Life Plan #3: Radio DJ
I intern at the local radio station and as they can't get me to shut up, they give me my own show.

Life Plan #4: Child Nail Artist/Jewelry Designer
My sister becomes such a good advertisement for my nail-painting abilities that soon all her friends ask for similar designs. Over time, I open my own shop and sell my jewelry there, too.

Life Plan #5: Let's Go Traditional
While working as a secretary just out of college, I fall in love with a simple, honest, hard-working man. We get married and have adorable children and I home-school them. At some point, I write a song which Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus record as a duet. It is wildly popular, but I am embarrassed to admit that I wrote it. At least I have plenty of money to send my kids to school.


I don't know, friends. These all look pretty good.

Love and life (and other mysteries?),
