  • I knew I wanted to be in the art field. I didn't know what specifically. I think I said "artist" when asked. Now I am a graphic designer. I am doing exactly what I love. I can't imagine a better job for me.

  • An ichthyologist. I was going to build a pontoon boat to do research from and then I was going to have kids and raise them on the sea, sleeping in hammocks and eating tropical fruits.

    I'm not sure where I went wrong but I live in Ohio and fix machines.

  • Well when I realized I was gonna be super-tall and skinny (by about age 9, LOL), I wanted to be a model. However, I developed an addiction to tattoos (and I like to actually eat like a regular person), so that went down the drain. The last thing I ever thought I'd be was a stay-at-home mom, but I def wouldn't change it! :)
