Nope. I never knew what I wanted to do. I did know that I wasn't going to stop at just one profession. So far I've had a few different professions. I am currently thinking about pursuing another. I love the thought that I can do different things.

As I'm retired now from the Automotive business , I just work for blurtit and beta-test games for Slitherine/Matrix games and I wish I could have done that a long time ago. So those are my current careers I guess and I enjoy them both very much.

I wanted to be a Scientist was not encouraged.

Later an Accountant, I tried many times too dumb and stupid.

I ended up in Collections/Customer Service and Auto Finance.

Worked out very good since I'm friendly and talkative.

No, I don't want to work in the campus bookstore my whole life. This is just to earn some money and have something to put on a resume. I'm also a tutor and hopefully someday I will be a teacher, as that's the only thing I can really see myself enjoying.

The only way I'm going to get the career I want is if I have a degree in psychology which I don't have.

Situations and Circumstances arise, and we react as we must to survive. A mortgage, Children, and life dictate exactly the choices that were available to me.

No, I wanted to be an X-ray tech but needed to upgrade courses to be accepted. I thought I would go to school for a year of office admin first before upgrading, since computer skills always come in handy. I ended up working as a legal assistant haha. Might consider going back to college soon though.

I just sort of progressed into being a nurse....I worked as an EMT but didn't like the 24hr shifts so I started working as a certified nursing assistant while I tried to get into nursing through school and became a nurse. I've been a nurse now for 21 really loooong years! I'd really like to work with animals though, they don't talk!
