WHAT I WANTED TO BE GROWING UP, CHRONOLOGICALLY

I changed my mind...a lot.
  1. 1.
    A ballerina, of course.
  2. 2.
    Miss Marple, the octogenarian detective.
  3. 3.
    Rory Gilmore, especially in her short hair, pre-Logan, pre-affair-with-Dean era.
  4. 4.
    Veronica Mars, because THAT SASS.
  5. 5.
    Rory Gilmore, take two.
  6. 6.
    A ballerina, but this time I was nearing 20 and it was less cute.
  7. 7.
    A lawyer, which we'll get back to later, because I was watching a lot of Ally McBeal at the time.
  8. 8.
    A baker, when I had my mental breakdown and baking was the only thing I ever felt like doing.
  9. 9.
    A teacher, because people said I'd be good at it.
  10. 10.
    Rory Gilmore: the finale.
  11. 11.
    A lawyer, which finally seems to be sticking and is seemingly not influenced by my television viewing habits.
