Starting a patisserie course has sparked many questions from the gallery. Everyone wants to know what I am going to do when I finish my course. Most people are not satisfied with my response when I say that I don’t know.
Questions like ‘You must have some idea?’ or ‘Why are you doing it then?’ have been thrown my way.
I am beginning to wonder whether most people have an end plan. Do most people plan their lives, get jobs, and enrol in courses knowing exactly where they are headed? Am I in the minority by not having an end plan?
My reluctance to plan out my life has brought me to this year, my year of discovery. It is likely that my go with the flow attitude will mean that at the end of my year, I may still not have an end plan and maybe I never will.
My lack of planning is intentional. I want to leave myself open to experience everything that life has to offer and take advantage of opportunities that come my way. I’m not sitting on the couch all day receiving an unemployment benefit, I’m keeping busy.
I work 4 days a week. I do yoga, boxing and running. I have one midweek class and an all day Saturday class. I’m also trying to finish my agents representative course, keep up to date on social media and trying stay in touch with friends and family. I’m also in the process of looking for a new job, because my current job is not challenging enough and I’m bored. Sometimes I feel like I’m doing everything and nothing.
It’s possible that I will work in the hospitality industry when I finish my course, but then again I might run away and join the circus. Anything is possible.
I guess when I think about it, my end plan is to survive and to get to the end of my life having lived the best possible life I could.
