WHAT I WANTED TO BE GROWING UP, CHRONOLOGICALLY
- •Pre-K - singerDuring Pre-K, I had just started taking dance classes. For some weird reason, I was fully convinced that being a singer was automatically 13,583 times cooler than being a dancer.
- •Kindergarten-1st grade - teacherI don't think I actually wanted to be a teacher. I distinctly remember the assignment we had in kindergarten where we had to draw a picture of what we wanted to be. I just drew a picture of a crowd of students around a woman, much like the scene I was witnessing at that moment. Not a very creative kid unfortunately.
- •2nd grade-3rd grade - Hannah MontanaBut who didn't?
- •4th grade-6th grade - doctorI don't know what my basis was for this one honestly. I was the smart kid in class... What other choice did I really have?
- •6th-9th - nothingThis was what I like to call my "eighth-life crisis." I was going through a bit of a rebellious stage and wanted to spite my parents and deviate from the stereotypes. So I stopped wanting to be a doctor. For a stupid, weird, identity-crisis-inducing reason.
- •10th - chemical engineerI met my chemistry teacher this year (shoutout to Mr. O). It was a subject I was really excelling in and I honestly just felt like THE shit. So I thought I wanted to be a chemist. Then I got an 85 on a test this year in AP chem. Whoops, there goes that dream.
- •11th- Doctor/dancerThe most recent fantasy of mine was being a professional dancer for a little bit while being an assistant at a physical therapy center. Kind of unrealistic. Anyways, I changed my mind again. I'm back to being completely confused and undecided. Still very young and I have a long way to go.
