I didn't have much of a plan. I would have gone to college and I hoped to be a free lance graphic designer in NY. My parents never would have let me go though lol! Instead, I got married at 18- 6 weeks after high school graduation and I got pregnant just a couple months later. I am now nearly 21 and expecting my 2nd just a month after my birthday. I work full time as a secretary and own my own graphic/web design business. I guess I got a little of both worlds.

Don't feel down about yourself, you're looking pretty darn good!!

I was a nerd as a kid......but I always wanted to be a child Psychologist (personal reasons...rough childhood) I went as far as doing only one year in college for psychology but then got preggo and couldnt go back....I still want to finish my psychology major...maybe I will try some of those online classes .

I think you make your own choices. You could have stayed in school. You could have taken birth control, or not have sex at all. I had dreams of becoming a children's physical therapist. Well I dropped out of school. Got pregnant at seventeen. I was foolish with BC. Oh well. I am 27 now two boys and married. I guess I chose to be a sahm and I love it. I would not change it. I know deep down that this is what I want to do. Babies and kids gotta love them.

I wanted to be an emergency room RN but i had my first baby at 17 and now at 19 I am expecting #2 and i work at home with a simlar job geared to helping people and also it has to do with the medcial field. I wouldnt go back and changed it though. I love being a mom and i think that things happen for a reason.

i never really knew what i wanted to do when i was younger. i have always had the best time working jobs that i knew i would never get anywhere with but i had fun. i pursued a career that my parents pushed and if i had it to all over again i would have defintely done something different what idk.

Well, im 21 and my son Aidan is 13 months old. I always wanted to get married, and have children. And be able to stay home with them. I am very lucky that my husband has a job that I am able to do that. 

I also wanted to go to college and became a ultrasound tech. maybe one day, who knows!
