What did you want to be when you grew up?
If you're like me, I'm sure you changed your mind often. I thought at one time I wanted to be a teacher, but then I realized I'd have to be around kids all the time. That cured that dream.
Then I thought I'd be a geologist, but then I realized the names of the rocks were complicated and I would have to deal with rocks. Boring!
Then, there was the idea of being a marine biologist. First of all, I'm not very good at chemistry. Secondly, I'm not particularly fond of the ocean. Double strike against me!
Finally, I decided to go into English. I love to read, I love to write, and I love to critically analyze things. It was the perfect fit!
