As a child, I thought I would be all sorts of things when I grew up. What exactly I thought I would be depended on my age when asked, and mood and mindset at the time. The thing is, I still don't feel that I have reached that magical, mystical age called "grown up" and there are still a great many things I might want to do or be.
My list of potential occupations, past and present, includes the following:
1. An artist.
2. A ballerina.
3. A camp counsellor.
4. A writer.
5. A babysitter.
6. A photographer.
7. A mixed martial arts fighter.
8. A marine biologist.
9. A speech-language pathologist.
10. A mother.
I'll leave it to you to work out which of these were the passing fancies of childhood, which have already been achieved, and which I am still toying with.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
