Wanna know why? I don’t have one.
That’s right, you heard me correctly.
Do you need a glass of water? Are you going to faint?
I, Yoni Weiss, 17 years old, entering my thoughts into the World Wide Web one tweet, reblog, and post at a time, do not have a backup plan.
I can say it without even flinching.
I don’t believe in backup plans. They’re stupid. If you have a backup, you’re going to use it.
I’m going to go to school for theatre. I’m going to do theatre as a career. I am going to find a way to continue doing theatre in some capacity until the day I die.
Now, double check that. Did I say I was going to be an actor until the day I die? Or a director? Or producer? No. No, I did not.
I love theatre. I love collaboration. I love the passion and the drive. I crave the rush and the risk.
So, yes, my backup plan sucks.
Everything that doesn’t exist sucks.
Even you, imaginary person. Even you.
