career choice?

When you were a little girl, what did you picture yourself doing? And where are you now?

I used to want to be a lawyer. A family one. Someone who could help the kids, and the families that really needed the help.

Now, i'm lost. I want to be a teacher, a chef, and I want to stay home with our children.

  • I used to want to be a lawyer and a doctor. -You know, make the big money!- Im a SAHM now, but I've done phlebotomy and patient care tech at the hospitals, and I'm a dispatcher for an air ambulance company. I've been going to school off and on for nursing, too. Still not quite making the money, but I was helping people, so I would say, I'm half way there!

    Don't worry, you can be a SAHM, teach your children, and learn how to be a great chef at home!

  • I wanted to be a mom, and now I am blessed to be a SAHM, altough my teachers always tried to push me to do somthing else, because "I have/had so much potencial, that I could do so much more with my life".

    I plan to do be a crisis intervention councler or do christian peer councling. But I am not concerned with that now, my babies are young and they are my #1 priority. They need al of me right now, and I am able to provide that.

  • When I was really little (elementary school and earlier) I wanted to be a princess.

    When I was in middle school, I wanted to be a teacher. And in highschool is when I made my career choice to do child psychology. I went to college for child psychology, and ended up getting a great job as an elementary school guidance counselor, but now I'm a stay at home mom :)

  • I wanted to be a lawyer-chef. I'd own a nice coffeehouse/bakery, and I never did get around to figuring out the scheduling of it all LOL.

  • When I was a little girl I wanted to be a mother just like my mother.
    When I was in high school and realized how intelligent I was in all mathematics I decided to pursue a degree in math and become a math teacher.
    When funds ran out and I couldn't afford college I ended up getting married and becoming a mommy anyway.
    During the course of my life I became iinterested in the healthcare field and was able to obtain a degree in medical assisting. Now I am college obtaining a degree in billing and coding and then I will go on to earn a degree in healthcare management.
    I would love to obtain a degree in accounting just for the fun of it, though.
