What do you think about planning for the future?

...

I think it’s a serious necessity. I’ve been planning for my future since middle school. Making poor quality slides and spreadsheets about where I should go to college, what scholarships I should apply for and what my career would be. Call me an odd child but I went straight OCD when it came to planning. This could have been a result of me being JUST old enough to realize what it meant when the stock market crashed in 07’. I think my generation is very aware of what can come about as a result of poor planning. We may procrastinate on a lot but everyone who I’m surrounded by prefers having a 5 year plan versus “living in the moment”. That statement is only good for using on a fire Instagram caption.
