What did you want to be when you grew up?  

Sunday, August 8, 2010

You know those dreams we have when we're growing up?

"I want to be a lawyer when I grow up!"

"I want to be a firefighter when I grow up!"

For the longest time, I wanted to be a model.

Then as I got older, I decided I wanted to go to Harvard and become a lawyer.. I mean, I was encouraged enough by my mother who said "You should be a lawyer, as much as you lie" and "You'd be a great lawyer, because you like to argue".

(By the way, no one should ever say those things to their kids. Keep that in mind.)

Think about it:

When we were growing up, we had Career Day at school, and I guess the people who had really odd jobs that we never heard about were the ones that were too busy to come to Career Day with their kids.

I mean, did you ever remember seeing a "Marketing Associate" that day? Or a "Chemical Engineer"? How about a "HAZMAT Technician"? I don't remember those at all!

I've done a few jobs:

  • Cashier at Burger King
  • Cashier at Wendy's
  • Waitress at Greek Village
  • Prep cook/cashier/waitress at Philadelphia Style Pizza & Subs
  • Maid at a Super 8
  • File clerk at our local community college's Records and Registration under Federal Work Study
  • File clerk as a temp for Manpower
  • File clerk for the company I was temping for through Manpower, then I became a 
  • Document Control Clerk and I was trained in wearing a gas mask (yup), and then I transferred to be a
  • Hazardous Waste Coordinator (three jobs for the same company (Bechtel) - keep up ok?)
  • Document Control Specialist for the American Red Cross
  • Secretary
And now I start a new job in two days. Guess what I'll be? A secretary again. It's cool - I can dig it. I just didn't ever dream of becoming one. (Hey, it pays the bills!)

But when I grow up I want to be a computer technician.

It's good to have goals - it keeps us motivated and moving forward.
