Five to ten years sounds like a long time. In actuality, it’s not as long as it seems.
You can accomplish a lot in five to ten years. Even one year. So let’s talk about the future, shall we?
But first allow me to jump back to the past…
Five years ago I was an amateur in every respect, begging for ones attention in a swimsuit on a hotel bed. I remember one industry man’s reaction, “whoever ignored that must be a real idiot.” Funny thing is that man is followed by both me and the ‘idiot’ in question. I don’t think he’s an idiot, not at all. I think I was the idiot. Nonetheless a talented one who showed promise, otherwise why would this guy bother to keep track of me for years?
Well I was dumb and 25 and acted how someone dumb and 25 might act: impulsive, conceited and of the belief that I deserved what I wanted. Now at 30 I know better. I’m glad they never showed up.
But now let’s talk about the future. Right now I’m in a very good spot. Admittedly at my paying dues stage, but in a good spot nonetheless. My writing career in addition to my day work in the industry is also in a really good spot. I am willing to say with a fair degree of confidence that while I may still be a nobody in the macro sense, in five to ten years, I will be a nobody worth knowing. I do believe I will become successful. Maybe not A-List, but I do believe I will one day produce or write- if not both.
I think that if they read this they know this too. Which is why maybe they were curious to look through that glass window in the local library, maybe they’re thinking of making a move but are unsure. If you’re local, why not come say Hi? I’d love to chat with you again.
If there’s one thing I think would be smart at this stage- it’s to take a page from Larry David and hit the reset button. Let’s put all the silly cat and mouse games aside and just go back to two people chatting about Led Zeppelin and rap battling using Fugees lyrics. Let’s just admit we’d be really good friends ☺️ Yea I think one is handsome, so what? I’m more than happy for anything platonic, even if I secretly wish I could be their young arm candy. And quite frankly I think I’d do that job well. But friends is what I’m asking for- I don’t want to creep them out. I’m dating anyways.
But I’m just throwing this out there, get in touch if you want. I think it’s silly that we’re not friends and there is no point to playing cat and mouse any more. You know I’m headed in the right direction so why put it off? Come say Hi or hit me up if you want to grab coffee or drinks. Heck, I’ll even buy.
