EASY -- Like Sunday morning! FROM:
Here's my question of the week. Answer it in your journal and come back here and leave me a link in the comments. I'll post your links next weekend and we'll start over again next Sunday.
When you were growing up, what did you want to be as an adult and is that what you are doing now or did your ambitions change?
Whenever we had Career Day at high school I would visit the following career booths;
1. U S Airforce-I thought it would be great to be an aerial photographer. Well, I love to take pictures but I don't really like to fly...so it's a good thing I didn't choose that career.
2. Telephone operator-that I did...the first four years out of high school. I started in July of 1960 and that was back in the days of the old cord switchboards, working split shifts and every holiday. I should have stayed there...by now I'd be retired.
3. Nursing-my mom was a registered nurse and I know that's what she wanted for me. I could have gone to nursing school but I was really sick of school by the time I graduated from high school. I have however, worked in clerical positions at a hospital for over 24 years.
The job I wanted more than anything (and they didn't have a booth on Career Day) was being a wife and a mother. Since I'm divorced I guess I really didn't do well as a wife and I think the jury is still out on my mothering.
