Girl Talk

Well...I had foot surgery yesterday and am at home sitting on my butt recovering so I am mildly excited that I have some time to actually blog YAY! I found this blog a while back but have not had time to participate and am excited about it!

Today's topic is What do you want to be?

1. What did you want to be when you grew up?

When I was a little girl I wanted to be a 1st grade teacher. I think mostly because my 1st grade teacher was awesome and I loved school as a little girl and loved playing school with my friends. I was a strange child :)

2. Did you go to school/get training to become that? If not what did you go to school/get training for?

Well, I started that way. My first semester freshman year my declared major was elementary education. Into my second semester I decided it was not what I wanted to do and I switched my major to secondary education English so I would teach high school instead and that is the degree I graduated with.

3. Are you currently using your degree/training now?

I will never use my bachelor's degree. I went on to Graduate School and got a Master's Degree in Higher Education Administration and work in that field currently as a coordinator of student activities at a community college.

4. If you could do it all again would you do it the same or would you want to be something different?
I would definitely do something different. When I was first thinking about going to college I always questioned if I wanted to be in education or communications. Obviously I chose education but continue to this day to want to go back to school and get a Master's in Communication as I would love to work in the event planning/corporate world :)

  1. Isn't it interesting how our ideas change over time?! I have always been interested in the very vague field of English.
