  • An architect.

    I'm happy with my choice of career before I had my son (scientific glassblower) and now that I'm a mom, I'm happy with my choice of career: SAHM.

  • A teacher. Although when I student-taught I didn't like it very much. I am some happy and some unhappy. I quit my job to raise my children, and I like the work I do now with older people, but I regret that being out of the job market for so long that the 6 years I spent at university were mostly wasted, and of course I lost a good amount of the job skills and all the seniority that I had. I could be making good money right now and we'd have a big house and go on nice vacations and have much more money saved towards retirement. On the other hand, I loved being at home, and I love what I do, even though I don't make much money, I love the people I work with.

  • A Godly wife and mommy...that's all. I never had a desire for a "career" or going to college.

    I am not disappointed with how things turned out. God blessed me with what I wanted sooner than I thought. I got married last September at 18 and got pregnant before my birthday which was a month after we were married. So, we have a honeymoon baby on the way, due in July. So far things are going great.

  • I wanted to be a doctor, but changed my mind in college. Do not regret that decision at all.

    I do, however, day dream about leaving my current job to be a travel writter..... not like that can happen with a house and family now... but the fantasy gets me thru the tough days. =)
