To be when you were growing up?  Did you accomplish your goal or did you strike off in another direction?

I did go to college and take art classes and did some interior design, still do. I taught, well was the assistant, in an elementary school teaching art for 2 years.

I wanted a house full of girls but got all boys. God knew best. I dearly love my boys and after being around girls at church, field trips and in school. I am SOOOO glad I had boys :)

 I wanted to be a social worker. I'm going to school to be a paralegal.

 I just wanted to get married and raise children.  I am thankful  I  did that, but I did not realize I also would have to finish a master's degree, get a professional certification and work full time - on call all the time.  I appreciate the opportunities I had, but I know my girls suffered in some ways.  I am very thankful and proud of them!

 If I could be anything I wanted I'd be a nurse or social worker.  But really I just wanted to be a wife and mother.  Got married the first time at 18 so didn't go to college.  After my first husband left me and our 2 babies I had to go to work so I became a nursing assistant in the nursery at a hospital.  I really did get to "play nurse" as the only difference in the nurses and us was the nurses gave the baby their vit. k shot.  I loved the job.  Unfortunately they changed their policies and nursing assistants started only being allowed to clean etc.

Photographer with my own shop. 

I still do photography but I learned I didn't want a shop. I don't want people to be so whiny & picky. I would rather do it as a hobby & I surely don't want a career.

You did accomplish what you wanted to be.  I love the photos that you take.  You have a great eye for composition.

You still have plenty of time to write a book.  After all Grandma Moses didn't start painting until she was quite old.

I wanted to be a mom...check that one off the list, been there done that, got the T-shirt LOL
I also wanted to be a print journalist or fiction author ...but that never came to be, I was busy being a mom. I did however go to college to get a business degree, but never finished.
I am a dispatcher now, I love my job (sometimes...but not today). Nobody ever aspires to be a dispatcher

Paralegal is cool.  You don't get the burn out that a lot of social workers do because of the mental and emotional strain of the job.
