What she wore: wine-colored knit top with cap sleeves, black skirt with wine-colored design and a mermaid hemline, black strappy slides with a serious heel.
This weekend I’m going to a friend’s wedding and I’ll be meeting up with all the old pals from college. In attendence should be my friend who will be having her first child at the end of the month. She is my friend with the "plan." I know we all have plans for our lives, but she’s the only person I’ve met so far in life that’s been checking hers off like a grocery list since she made it. It goes like this:
365 days after wedding, start working on baby–check!
She will be giving birth almost exactly two years after she got married. Her plan is on perfect track.
Whenever I see the plan in action I look at myself and wonder "Where’s my plan?" I’ve just been wandering around with NO PLAN! I just do what feels right and don’t worry too much about the future–I mean, I’m saving for retirement and everything, but I don’t have a plan–I don’t have any expectation for how things are going to happen or when they’re going to happen. I’m flying without a net!
Who’s way is better? Who cares? My way works for me and her way works for her–do you have a way?
PS: I’d like to say thanks for all the advice–I do try to only chat in a group, keep social stuff for outside of school, and in case you haven’t noticed, I’m crazy about my job, so if you do eaves drop on our conversation it’s usually about math, or teaching math, or our kids. I have a one-track mind.
