When I Grow Up...

Things I wanted to be (and not just passing fantasy...actual careers I researched and more or less took steps toward).

Dan Rather (never just a news anchor. I specifically wanted to be Dan Rather.)

A teacher

A wedding planner

A psychologist

A writer/novelist

A music video director

A photographer

 A Peace Corps worker

Not doing the last one is one of my biggest regrets. There is still time for the rest. That's probably why I feel that way. 

What did you want to be?

I know that you can't be a Peace Corps worker, but you can serve a welfare mission, and that would amount to pretty much the same thing, only better.I served my mission in Guatemala, and often had neighbors from the Peace Corps, and I have to tell ya, it isn't all that it is cracked up to be! I think a Service/Welfare mission with your spouse would be a much better way to go!

Yes, I've thought about welfare missions and that is something I hope is in my future. There are also shorter programs that you can go on with your family for a summer.

The thing with the Peace's free and actually reduces student that' would've been a definite win-win financially speaking. :)

hahaha...with the exception of dan rather and the music video director, all your other ones are/or at one point were on my list. (i knew i liked you for reason.) :) i would add lawyer, mother, and world traveler. :)

I've salved my own Peace Corps regrets with the following quote from their website:

"There is no upper age limit. In fact, the oldest Volunteer ever to serve in the Peace Corps was 86."

Viva la Peace Corps!
