What did you wanna be at 5, 15, and 20?

what were your plans, goals, aspirations at each age? OH - and what is your current age and occupation?

at 5 I was all over the place dr/astronaut/firefighter
15 social worker or photographer
20 I was knee deep in the financial and brokerage world. Hated it, loved the paychecks though

Am now 29 1/2 and a SAHM on disability (kidney failure as a result of a csection complication) ... nothing like I expected my life to be. But I'm paid to be home with my little monkeys all day. So it's not like I'm miserable.... I guess.

  • I don't remember being 5. At 15, I wanted to be a lawyer, then a CPA, then an English teacher. At 20, I was working at a mortgage company and considering starting a family (we did at 23). At that point, I had no idea what I would do, and I still don't at 32.
