Day Two and I almost forgot already. Eeks…Clearly I need to get with the program. (Or start scheduling some posts a day ahead of time so that I am on time! LoL)
Day Two: What was your dream job growing up? And what is it now?
I think when I was growing up, I had a bunch of dream jobs. As a little kid, I thought for sure I wanted to be:
*A dolphin trainer–mostly in the summer, we spent a lot of time in the pool
*A Teacher–I can honestly say I had GREAT teachers growing up, which made me want to be just like them
*An Interior Designer–No idea where that one came from
*I wanted to work at the Post Office–that’s what one of my Grandma’s did, and I often got to hang out and help her
*I wanted to “count corn” –my other grandma ran a grain elevator and told us as children “she counted corn all day”
When I started going to High School and your “dream job” became a real thing, I wanted to be a teacher. I actually started college with a teaching degree in mind. As part of a class I took, I had to work a few days at Easter Seals. While I adored the children, it broke my heart to have to work with them in ways that made them physically hurt. And I think it was at that point that I decided I couldn’t do it. Stupidly, I stopped taking school seriously and never finished.
I think now, as an adult, I have two ‘dream jobs.’ One is realistic, I would like to be an office manager for a mid-level company. I have always liked the idea of office work, spreadsheets, note taking, and such. I have always thrived in an office environment. Additionally, I think I will always have the lofty dream job of owning a bakery 🙂
