Remember everyone asking what do you want to be when you grow up? Well what did you want to be? Or are you what you wanted to be? I wanted to be a paramedic first (and I have), then I wanted to be a dentist (which I am not), then I wanted to be a forensic pathologist (kind of working this path now).....

i wanted to be a tattoo artist. and i still do but i'm not a good artist and wouldnt trust myself to put a permanent mark on someone's body. even if it looked great i would say i couldve done it better. i now am trying for professional body piercer. in a few months i might want to apprentice. also i wanted to work as a veterinary technician and i started the course but i didnt finish it yet. and i dont know if i will. cause piercing would be so much better for me. i also wanted to be a waitress and i have been doing that for almost 3 years now. and i love it.

Can you believe this, I wanted to be a interior decorator! I used to cut out pictures from my grandma's magazines of different walls and floors and kitchen accessories, I had a huge mess all over the house. It's a complete 360 from what I want to do now, which is be a court reporter or paralegal.

Isn't it amazing how things can change so much?? Most of what I wanted to do was related to each other but alot of what i have done along the way is way off the plan LOL Happy Holidays
