The Evolution of My Career Aspirations
October 3, 2011 § Leave a comment
Age 2- My little pony: Was ill-fated from the start (no hooves).
Age 5- Rainbow Brite: Would’ve been possible but lacked a unicorn that flies. Did successfully pull off her look.
Age 10- Anne of Green Gables: If I changed my hair and found Gilbert Blythe, I was there.
Age 16- The next Shakespeare- Maybe a tad ambitious.
Age 19- ? (too stoned to form a coherent aspiration)
Age 22- Jane Austen- Okay, I still want to be her.
Age 25- Mother Theresa: Quit six months into my gig in the Peace Corps. Almost died from heat and intestinal worms.
Age 27- Martha Stewart: Even convinced Jon she started her own school in New England. When she does, I’ll reconsider.
Age 29- Writer: This one’s in the bag; my mom already commented on a post! What further validation does one need?!
And Jon still thinks I lack direction.
