    What did you want to be? Is your current occupation all you dreamed it would be? Are you doing what you always wanted to do? What happened?

    I wanna be a toys-r-us kid!

    See I made it easy on myself.. whe ppl would ask of me this hard question.. to answer.. I simply decided that makin all these hard grown up decisions was too hard ofr me.. sooo! "I wanna be a toys-r-us kid".. and go to NeverLand (w/o michael jackson).. But life happended.. and Im in creative marketing.. is it what i want to be? yes.. right now.. Ive read all the manuals to life and nowhere it says you have to be one thing .. all your life.. ive so far been a journalist.. Firefighter/paramedic.. and a cashir at your neighborhood Target. BUt i hope to become an overall successful person.. when I grow up I will know it.. cause I will finally have decided to be the greatest thing I can ruly be.. A mother.. to my child! :baby: And wife to my husband!

    lol... when I was in first grade we had to dress-up in costumes relating to whatever occupation we wanted to be in when we grew up. Following in my mom's footsteps, I said "I want to be a mommy." lol. I dressed in normal clothes carrying a Cabbage Patch doll in my hand. :donttell:

    I always wanted to do something creative for a living and live in a faraway country somewhere forever and ever.
    So, I live in the country alright, but THIS country--on a farm and do organic farming as well as create upscale craft and art items that I sell out of my house.

    So at least I'm living out a part of what I wanted.
