I got tired of refreshing my inbox, waiting for someone to tell me that I didn’t get an amazing apprenticeship at a cool theatre in Washington.
So I decided to not wait anymore, and I went ahead and booked myself a one-way ticket to New Zealand.
I bought the ticket online, without cancellation insurance, over morning coffee, half-asleep.
The plan is to go around the world and what I have now is a ticket from Los Angeles to New Zealand. And the knowledge that I’ll have to get to Los Angeles from Toronto somehow
What I don’t have is a budget or a plan. I haven’t actually really thought about it. I’ve thought about it, but I haven’t really thought about it if you know what I mean. That’s how it’s done, kids.
Close your eyes and jump off that cliff. And hope that at the bottom, there’s a deep pool to land in, one so buoyant it acts more like a refreshing trampoline.
