Honestly, don't be too sad movingtohouston...I too have a degree in history but I am just happy I got my degree. For me, when I got the degree, I marked it on my Life Checklist...i.e., husband check, degree check check...you'll figure out what to do. I know I too want to be a stay-at-home mom someday in addition to owning a business where I can work at home. It'll happen sooner or later.

That child's answer is scary-hopefully his/her parents will pursue.

As we say back in St. Olaf, smarts are like "the time of the month" - if they don't come on time, don't wait for them! I most likely don't need to deliberate on this issue...

When I am done raising my kids I hope to become a fulltime doula. I just love helping new parents with the process of bringing a baby into the world.

On my bookcase I have a plank which I can see when I am here in this office, and where I am often and it says:

"It's never too late to change what you want to be when you grow up."


I've always wanted to be a writer, and that notion has cling to my shirt-sleeves even as I crossed over to science. My perdurable ambition is now within sight as I have been offered a free-lance position as a writer for a local, but rather prestigious newspaper.

So, if I master the deadlines, I might get my wish after six decades of notations.

Hmmmm, this subject came up when my husband and I were talking the other night. I have tried many things, waitress, grocery store clerk, delivery 'boy', bank bookkeeper, barmaid,nursery school assistant, office manager, stock car racer, Chief Accountant, telemarketer, door to door salesperson, Librarian, owner of a real estate office, and now a Realtor. Few other 'jobs' also. I don't know what I really want to be when I grow up.

I think that I need to try a few more things yet! Looks as if I am the oldest one here and you would think that I had 'settled' down by now, wouldn't you? Let's see, how about a cruise director on an ocean liner in Alaska? Yep, that sounds good.

Thanks, crazyworld--just a free-lance kind of thing--not a position! But kinda cool anyway.

I don't know what I want to be when I grow up! I'll be 42 in a week and a half....I've been a teacher and worked in social services.....right now I work from home. It's fine, but I've somehow lost that spark for my work!
I also will be 42 in a week and a half

I just want to be happy when I grow up
