I have the closest thing to a plan that I have ever had in my life. It’s exciting and scary at the same time. But finally I have something close to what I want to do and I figured it out in my head without letting others influence me and my decisions.
The first step of my plan is to pass my driving theory ASAP. I am going to pass that this year as I will do it before 2015 begins. It needs to be done as I’ve been promised a promotion as soon as I can get to an alarm call out in 15-20 minutes. Which means pass my driving test completely or move into town. Moving into town has currently come to a standstill due to a problem with the paperwork and I need to pass my driving at some point anyway so the sooner the better really.
The second step won’t begin until I’ve passed my driving theory as I have decided that I will start having driving lessons again after I’ve passed my driving theory. I hope to have passed my test before the end of February 2015. However this really depends on how long it takes me to complete step 1 and on how well I remember my previous lessons, as it’s been over a year since I was behind the wheel of a car. I’m going to have a different driving instructor as I feel that my previous one went on two-week long holidays too frequently and there were times where I didn’t have lessons for months. So I think I might have more success with a different driving instructor.
My third step is something I’m not going to start until I have completed step 1 as well as I think redoing part of my french A level whilst revising my driving theory might be too much at once. I’m planning on doing this now even though I finished my french A level over 2 years ago now because I didn’t do as well as I could have because at the time my motivation was at a very low point. The other day I saw my A level French teacher at my work place and she spoke to me about it. So I took it as a sign that it was time to try again once I’ve passed my theory, as she’s no longer working in the town my college is in but she’s working in the town I work in. So once I’ve passed my theory I’m going to start on that.
Another part of my plan, which isn’t exactly an official step, is to try get all this done before I start a new relationship. As a guy asked me how I would respond if he asked me out on a date and it made me think I really don’t want to be in a relationship or even thinking about having one right now as I think I need to focus on myself and getting my life where I want it. However it’s not an official step as I currently don’t think there’s anyone in my life or anyone who I can think of that I would want a relationship with so my feelings might change if I met someone. But for now it’s a pretty official step.
My health also gets a step in the plan. As I feel that I need to be a tad healthier at times. This basically means I think I should just stretch more and maybe eat a tad more fruit and veg. I’m not going overboard with the whole idea.
I also plan to continue exercising my creativity. As recently I picked up my sketch book again and started messing around with media mostly doing self portraits or drawing random parts of my body such as hands. I hate drawing hands but I need the practice. So I plan on continuing messing around with that now my creative drive is coming back slowly after A level art kind of killed that off a fair bit.
Once all the main points of my plan are done I’m considering maybe learning another language. Or maybe doing a course that will improve my CV. Or maybe I’ll try finding a hobby that I enjoy. I’m not sure yet my plan gets kind of ambiguous after I’ve passed my driving test. However it’s the furthest I’ve ever planned into the future. This is mostly because I’m of the opinion that planning your life out leads to disappointment as you can’t account for all the potential variables that may make it go wrong. Which is why I have made a few simple goals which are achievable providing I actually try to get them done. So this is my plan so far as to gutpunch 2014 and some of 2015. All I have to do now is actually complete it.
