See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
Your "plan" that is.
I never had any plans on getting married and I wanted maybe one kid. I went to school for Hospitality and Tourism Management with an emphasis in Special Event Planning and I wanted to go to New York to work for a high end event firm.
I graduated in 2001... just 4 months before 9-11. I chose to take the summer off and waitress while I "played" and by the time I was ready to look for a job, there were none because of the events in September that year.
After that I decided to apply for a job teaching in Japan. I got it... was a month from getting on the plane and going to Japan for a year (min.) and I met DH. I can't say I'm upset I stayed, because we are still together with a happy family... but I often wonder just what I passed up on.
This gal who was never going to have kids or get married ended up a SAHM for 6 years and now I sell advertising.
Makes me sad to think I let so much opportunity pass me by.
What was your plan?
