There's something to be said for never really growing up, and that something is "yes!"
:)

Growing up, I went through several stages: doctor, lawyer, actress, psychiatrist. Writer was always in that list, too.

Teacher came much later. People always told me I should be one, but I never thought it was "prestigious" enough. I majored in English in college and did my student teaching as something "to fall back on" if best-selling author didn't happen overnight.

What can I say? I fell in love with teaching. And yes, I prefer the older kids hands-down to the younger ones. Maybe it's cuz I don't have kids of my own, but I don't know what to do with small children, and they make me nervous. You can talk to teens, and they get your sarcasm and your jokes (most of the time). And sadly, many of them are in desperate need of parenting that they're not getting at home, where Mom & Dad want to be friends first and disciplinarians second.

Funny where you end up. The universe has plans for us that we never dream of, sometimes!

I wanted to be a mommy full time, second choice was a preschool teacher, but when I 'grew up',I was too shy to try it. At work I loved tutoring/coaching adults, but when the actual job was offered as a full time trainer I couldn't let myself take it. I later tutored adult literacy and hope to return to it. Don't regret not teaching kids though, life takes interesting turns on its own sometimes.

I admire anyone who can teach a group of kids - of any age.

I have to take my metaphorical hat off to any one who wants to teach and does well at it given what children are like these days.

If I were to teach then I'd have to agree - I'd want to go for the younger years where the biggest differences are made rather than the older years when kids have more of an attitude and are more difficult to educate.

I did the Blog Fodder this week too!

2007-06-12T19:57:00.000-04:00

i've always wanted to be a lawyer or politician.. but when I became an adult, i dropped the the idea of bein' a politician.. i can't live dirty!

now, am not a lawyer either its not because i dropped the idea of bein one, but i think am not ready to face that challenge yet.. that vocation is so demanding.. i would love to spend more time with my hubby and lil kiddo instead..

so, now if you'll ask me what do i wanna be.. hmmm... i'll have a straight answer... I wanna be a full time WIFE and MOMMY..

hope you would fulfill your dream of bein' a writer.. you sure do have great talent.. Your entries here in the blog always impress me! don't forget to send me a copy of your best selling novel.. Alright?

regards! and hugs to you judy!



I never knew what I wanted to be when I grew up. ...

2007-06-12T12:43:00.000-04:00

I never knew what I wanted to be when I grew up. I think now that I know, that I didn't know then because my choice wasn't respected by my Mother...and it still isn't.
It wasn't until I became a Mom that I figured out that was what I was meant to be.
But as a kid my Mom always pushed me to be the "Have it all 70's -80's woman." ya know, Girl Power and all that jazz. The first time I had any inkling of a career choice it wasn't what I wanted, but what I thought would make my Mom happy.
Now that I'm here and happy as a clam my Mom is still pushing me to finish college so that I can get a career. *eyeroll!* I don't want that, I don't need that and if ever I do need a job I have enough skills to get one that I like well enough. Oh well...that's my story.
