Hey babes! It’s already time for another #SnapchatSunday! This week, one of you asked me the million dollar question – “What are your future plans?”
Well, the great thing about my future is that I can literally go and do whatever I want. The scary thing about it is that I CAN LITERALLY GO AND DO WHATEVER I WANT.
See what I’m getting at?
I just turned 21. I have a college degree from the University of Alabama, an extra semester of broadcasting classes, a journalism certificate from Michigan State, a social media marketing certificate from Northwestern, and I’m in the process of beginning another certification. I spontaneously moved to live in West Palm Beach to work for a Major League Baseball team. I went to Hawaii and swam with sharks. I learned to surf. I rode quad bikes in the mountains.
If there’s anything I’ve learned from this last year, it’s that I enjoy life most when I’m living in the moment. When I’m being spontaneous. I was never one to be like “Oh by this age I need to have a full-time job and by this age I need to be married and by this age I need to have kids”. At the end of the day, I know I can’t take life too seriously.
So, to answer your question, my future plans involve me living my life as happily as I can. I want to make money doing something I enjoy doing every single day, spend my life with someone I love, travel and experience as much of this world as I can, and finally, leave this world better than I found it.

My advice? Don’t spend your today worrying about your tomorrow. It is coming regardless. It can be overwhelming, trust me, I know. But if you find what makes you happy, and make that your life, you’ll look to your future with nothing but happy anticipation.
Thanks so much for this question Snapchatters! Make sure to keep sending in your questions on my Snapchat, and I’ll be back next Sunday! <3
