This weeks Writing Prompt from Mama Kat… that I chose is…
4.) If you could change career paths now and be anything you wanted to be…what would you be and why?
Let me start off by telling you a little bit about my aspirations as a younger me.
I wanted… so badly… to be a cheerleader! To be a star at football games! To yell and jump and wave pom poms around!
I was too shy and intimidated to try out. A fear of failure… perhaps. A fear of being judged. Not quite sure.
I joined band.
Plus, I didn’t have to take P.E. if I was in band. How in the world was a girl that didn’t even want to participate in P.E. going to make it as a cheerleader?
I wanted a little more out of band. I was tired of walking around playing the clarinet at football games. Plus, I didn’t do so well at remembering the music.
I wanted to shine!
So, I joined the flag corp. It was awesome! We had these hideous shirt/skirt combinations that didn’t even match the band or school colors and I always got my flag caught in the skirt. The best time of my life!
I had big plans for college! I was going to be a teacher. Until I realized there was no way that I could get up in front of that many kids. Thoughts of spit balls and airplanes being thrown at my back or whoopie cushions strategically placed in my desk chair bounced around in my head.
I changed my career aspirations. I wanted to be a Physical Therapist.
To make a long story short… after going to college for a semester and a half… I dropped out.
Now, to answer the question.
I would want to be a Physical Therapist. I would enjoy helping people recover from surgery, etc. Then again, I don’t like seeing people in pain. So, that may not work out. But, the money would be great!
I would want to be a Realtor. I really like looking at homes. It’s crazy, but if I could spend all day eye googling over homes that are for sale, I’d be super happy. Plus, the money would be great!
I would want to be a Detective. I love mysteries! I love solving puzzles! Plus, the money would be great!
I would want to be a Psychiatrist. I would love to sit on my butt all day and listen to people talk about their problems. If you’re a psychiatrist, I don’t mean you in particular sit on your butt all day. But, I would! It would be kind of like having my own private reality show. Plus, I’m a great listener! And the money would be great!
Would you want to change your career if you could?
