What I Wanted to Be Growing Up, Chronologically

  1. Ballerina
    This dream ended when I realized I couldn't dance
  2. Vet
    I love animals, but could never euthanize one
  3. Forensic Scientist
    This was during my CSI obsession. I'm not sure when I lost interest in this career.
  4. Teacher
    I either wanted to teach History or Religion. I still think about teaching sometimes...
  5. Mental Health Counselor
    A mental health counselor came to speak at my high school my sophomore year and she made it sound like the most fulfilling job. It's why I majored in Psych.
  6. Doctor
    I never thought I was smart enough and sometimes I still don't. I know though that if I don't try, I'll regret it for the rest of my life. I've never been so excited and scared about a career before in my life.
