Today’s blogging challenge is “What’s your dream job and why?”
At first I was thinking, I really want to be a teacher still. For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to be a teacher. I remember in 1st grade, we were asked to draw a picture of what we wanted to be. Guess what I drew. Yup, a teacher (which was clearly labeled “me” with an arrow pointing to the teacher) and kids sitting in chairs. The picture sounds lovely, but remember I was in 1st grade. They wre stick figures :-p
As I got older, things never changed. I was determined to be a school teacher. I knew that I was going to be an elementary school teacher. I loved little kids.
Then I got even older and I was a junior high school. I was starting to look at colleges. There was one school I was determined to go to, for business management. Johnson & Wales University. They had a total of 4 campuses that I would have to choose from; Colorado, Rhode Island, Florida and North Carolina. Once I realized that this was the school I wanted to go to and I picked the campus I wanted to attend (Denver, Colorado), I contacted the school. I was going to take a college day with my mom for a few days and go to Colorado with my mom. That was my first and last time I had gone to Colorado. It was October when we went. There was snow everywhere! I had been wearing shorts on the plane because, well Texas was way too hot to wear anything else. The school was amazing. They paid for our hotel stay, our meals and transportation. We took tours of the school and sat in while the culinary arts class cooked. I always thought that my mom would pay for me to go to school, I never thought she didn’t have the money.
So I never went. I couldn’t get a scholarship and couldn’t afford the cost to go.
I graduated high school and took a semester off. I went to Central Texas College for Business Management, January 2008. I didn’t even complete that :-/
That’s when I realized that I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. I got married before the semester ended. I worked at a few places here and there. Nothing that would become a career. After a few years of being married, I realized that I wanted to be a stay-at-home-wife. I was good at that.
So I guess, I don’t have a dream job. I just want to stay home with Landon.
What did you/do you want to be when you grow up?
