WHAT I WANTED TO BE GROWING UP, CHRONOLOGICALLY

  1. A hairdresser.
  2. A fireman (or in my case, firewoman).
  3. A teacher.
  4. An architect.
  5. A chef.
    Which I eventually became and did for 10 years.
  6. Some kind of office worker.
    Such grand aspirations and not as wonderful as I'd hoped. But at least I could sit down for a change when I was working, instead of standing for 14 hour shifts.
  7. A writer.
    A work in progress. And I'm still in the process of 'growing up'.
