I warned you that I would write a couple of angst-filled posts as I contemplated my schedule during the Florida Film Festival. I really like organizing and planning. I’m not always as good at executing those plans, but it doesn’t stop me from making them! The process of reviewing the options and putting together what I want to do is a sporting event in and of itself, and part of the fun for me.
I’ve always been like this. My family could tell you about our first trip to Walt Disney World, when I was 19 years old. I had the family running back and forth across the parks, based on guidance from The Unofficial Guide to Disney. I had a written plan in my pocket and as soon as we got off one ride, I would whip it out and declare where we were headed next. In that case, the plan definitely worked in our favor. We came during the busiest week of year — between Christmas and New Year’s — and, thanks to my advanced planning, never stood in line longer than about 20 minutes. Angsting over planning is how I roll.
