I am a relentless planner. I am running through my day in my mind in morning showers, and scribbling down to-do lists while distracted in lectures. I thrive on the construct of the future. I used to worry so much about the future, but now the future is hope. It’s sunshine. It’s warm weather. It’s new problems and new heartaches and new designs. I embrace the future for all of its complexity and despair and greatness, and I plan for it with the tenacity and resilience that I own with all my heart. I live for the future, for the unknown, for hope.
