(Whine) But I'm ALWAYS It!!!

Muddy Boots tagged me tonight to for a meme created by our Looper friend Jenn.

Here it is.... "What did you want to be when you were 5, 10, 15, and 20?

Not too hard....

5 - I wanted to be an animal doctor, or an astronaut...and a princess. I didn't like the way the word "queen" sounded. Princess sounded better, but I didn't want to wear the pointy hat, though...so it was a toss up for me.

10 - I wanted to be an anthropologist, because I got a 100% on that social studies test. And it did sound interesting! But in my text it was presented as more the study of ancient man rather than modern. This is the only career my mom said "absolutely not" to....she wasn't going to pay tens of thousands of dollars for me to study something I couldn't get any work in. (so instead she paid tens of thousands of dollars for me to get a degree in a field I've never worked in because I want to be a wife and homeschool mom.... (grin))

15 I wanted to be a whale biologist. Little did I know, child of the desert and Lake Mead that I was, that I would hate swimming in the oceans. I can't stand salt, tides, or currents. The ocean is pretty to watch and nice to wet your feet in.

20 I wanted to be a psychologist. I was starting to think I wanted to be a missionary/pastor's wife....well, the wife of a guy who wanted to be a pastor/missionary anyway. But I also wanted to be a psychologist. I still do.

So now I tag Designated Knitter, Polly, Melynda, Jane, and Susan.

Wow - I'm impressed - I have no idea what I wanted to be at any of those ages. How can you remember that stuff.
