When you were a teen~ what did you want to be when you grew up? Are you doing it?
When I was a teen I wanted to be a poet or an English teacher.
I don't do either, I have a AS degree in Occupational Therapy and work in special ed as an instructional assistant.
No ,I was in a car wreck at the end of my sophomore year in college ,a drunk hit us and I had a severe closed head injury.By the time I was able to write etc again it seemed overwhelming to go to med school.I do have my masters and started my Ph.D. I am very happy with how things turned out.I have been a primarily sahm with my children .I doubt I would have left being a shrink and I have loved being home with my children..
Can't think of what I wanted to do. Definitely not what I am doing - a school secretary. I wanted to be a wife darning socks. I am a wife, I even darn socks once in a while.
In middle school I wanted to work for MI6 by the time i got to the end of middle school I had decided a police officer would be good enough Either Narcotics or Organzed crime unit. Then I joined NJROTC in freshman year of Highschool and I wanted to be a Navy fighter pilot Then someone had told me that as a woman i would not be able to fly during combat. When I met my dh at 16 all i wanted was to be a Mother. which is what I ended up being. lol
