I wanted to be an attorney.  I was going to go, studied for my LSAT, and then in 2010, all the lawyers started losing their jobs.  The market really hasn’t improved in the past four years, so I don’t think it’s ever going to happen.

I’m an administrative assistant in state government.  I like it, and I’ll probably stay in government for the rest of my life.  I plan on getting an MPA within the next five years – have to take the GRE now!

Oh, it changed over time. I wanted to be a movie director for a long time. Then I wanted to be a college professor (in history). Then I wanted to be a lawyer or involved in politics. Or I wanted to be a top journalist.

But ultimately, I always wanted to be a teacher deep down. Ever since I was tiny, that was always the answer in the back of my mind, and it was always the answer I turned to in the gaps between my aspirations of working in film to journalism. And now I am a teacher, and I am thrilled.

I wanted to be a nurse because that’s what my mom is.  She brought me to work with her one day when I was around 12 or 13 and thought “you clean people’s butts all day? No thanks!” That was the end of my nursing career. Wink

I’m now an out of work accountant.

I wanted to be a medical examiner and perform autopsies. 

I havent changed much, got a degree in the sciences, work in occupational health and safety, hoping to get my masters with a focus on human toxicology and exposure limits.
