  • i wanted to be a vet. even went to undergrad and got a degree in animal science with the pre-vet option. i realized my senior year that cutting animals open and seeing blood, etc. made me want to vomit so i didn't even attempt to go to grad school. i became a zoo keeper after graduation, then got my certification to become a teacher. then i quit my job to be a sahm which is what i am now

  • I wanted to be a singer. I love to sing, and I do it all the time. But I can't sing in front of people unless I feel really comfortable with them, so that sort of doesn't work. I am currently a restaurant crew trainer. I would love to be a SAHM, but we just can't swing the budget.
