INT. GRANVILLE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL PRINCIPAL’S OFFICE – AFTERNOON

Ryan is advising the PRINCIPAL about safety regulations that should be implemented, after Ryan inadvertently ran smack-dab into a tetherball pole while on recess.

RYAN
The problem is that NOBODY CAN SEE THE TETHERBALL POLES. I think we should paint them bright orange, so this doesn’t happen again.

I want to be a Civil Engineer and make bridges!

INT. WLWT CHANNEL 5 – MORNING

Ryan talks to the BOSS of the Engineering department NBC in Cincinnati about getting a part-time, vacation relief job there since he’s about to graduate and doesn’t have something to do with his life yet.

Yes, sir! I’d be happy to work third shift every other week, followed by second shift the next week until the end of time.

INT. BRIDGE WORLDWIDE – HAPPY HOUR

Ryan talks to a group of his coworkers.

RYAN
Yeah, it’s probably crazy to leave this comfortable lifestyle and move to Los Angeles to be an actor – but I’ve been acting since I was in middle school, so why not give it a shot?!

CUT TO:

INT. RYAN’S APARTMENT – LATE NIGHT

Ryan updates his website while listening to the classical music station so he doesn’t get distracted by any lyrics. As he sips on a craft beer, he thinks about how crazy it is that he’s been in LA since December of 2010, and he reflects on all that he’s accomplished.
