WHAT I WANTED TO BE GROWING UP, CHRONOLOGICALLY
I had a weird childhood, and adolescence, maybe I'm just weird.
- •Age 3: DoctorHigh aspirations for such a young age. This is where I peaked.
- •Age 5: Wife to Brett FavreI'm from Wisconsin. I'm pretty sure he was my first celebrity crush. LOVE TRANSCENDS A WIFE, FAMILY, AND A 22 YEAR AGE DIFFERENCE!
- •Age 5.5: Country Singer, living in Oklahoma, with purple sparkly cowboy bootsAfter I kissed the TV while watching Packer football, my parents told me marrying Brett was inappropriate. I set my sights on something far more prestigious. I only wanted to be a country star if I got to live in Oklahoma and wear purple sparkly cowboy boots. Non-negotiable, people.
- •Age 7: TeacherBasically just because I loved my kindergarten and first grade teachers. Thanks Mrs. Miller and Mrs. Baum!
- •Age 10: Dog TrainerI loved dogs and didn't have one. So naturally I aspired to a career of training disobedient puppies. If I could take it back now, I would.
- •Age 10-15: The lost yearsNo aspirations or hopes to live through tomorrow. A beautiful time of teenage angst and rebellion characterized by my desire to do nothing ever.
- •Age 16: Forensic Pathologist/ MorticianBecause you could still work with the human body but lives weren't at stake. And I watched too many crime shows/ ER.
- •Age 18: EditorA passion for grammar led me down this path. That flame burned bright and fast.
- •Age 20: MissionaryMy actual job. I subconsciously wanted this for a long time but refused to admit it. Praise God for giving me a passion for the gospel!
- •Age 24 and beyond: Jobs I'd still like to try somedayIt's a long list including: Graphic Designer, Writer, Inn Owner (is that a real job title? I just want to be Lorelai Gilmore), Medical Professional, Secretary, Personal Assistant, etc. I could go on for hours about things I'd like to try. Keep it fresh, people.
