Need Help Creating a Five-Year Plan
I'm looking at grad schools in various subjects and there seem to be problems with each of them. I didn't do well undergrad and would therefore have a tough time getting 3 letters of recommendation from teachers. In the meantime I need a place to live because my mom is moving back in with my grandmother. I don't have income. I would appreciate help in creating a 5 year career plan.
My preliminary plan:
Immediately find waitress job to pay bills and get apartment
Fix credit by paying debts
Get higher paying job in field
Take course at community college in economics
Apply to master's programs in __________
Continue working while in master's program
Ask for promotion
The reason I left the master's program blank is I'm not sure what programs I can possibly get into.

If you don't have a clear purpose at the moment regarding what you want the purpose of your life to be you don't have to decide for a masters program right now.
I think that you should be open for finding the great idea that you want to explore in your life while taking your economics course and afterwards choosing your masters based on your purpose.

One way to go about putting together a five year plan is for a moment pretend it is five years later.
Pretend it is five years later and you have achieved everything you wanted to achieve. Pretend you're looking back over the past five years of success and what key events have happened to make that success possible.
