What did I want to do when I was a kid versus what I ended up doing in my life… Oh boy. This is a loaded prompt.

When I was a kid, I wanted to be a teacher. I. did. I used to play teacher in the basement and pretend to teach other kids. I wanted to teach history, but I liked art too much and thought I had a better chance of being an art teacher, so I went that direction. What did I end up doing with my life? For a while, I taught art in a high school. I did.

But when I was a kid, I loved my Barbies. Loved them. Still do, to be honest. I could sit in my room for hours just making up stories for them. I’d dress them, have them fall in my version of love – I was eight and love wasn’t that complicated–and was happy as a clam. We used to have this lilac bush next to the house. I had this nasty habit of changing the clothes on my Barbies and losing the clothes. (I was a kid. It happened.) Anyway, I’d also watch General Hospital before I went to kindergarten (I was an afternoon K kid.) I’d come home and play out MY version of the story line on General Hospital and dress my dolls in the leaves of that lilac bush. Why? The leaves made a perfect shirt (It did at the time anyway). It was great fun and I used my imagination. I never did understand the story lines from the soaps and would change them to what I wanted.

I also loved to write, especially when I got to high school. I was the kid who wanted to write for those contests, not because I thought I’d win, but because I wanted to write something that wasn’t the boring prompts given by the teachers.

Kind of looks like I always had an inkling I wanted to write, even then. I know I wanted to use my imagination. Things sort of worked out, I think. What about you? What did you want to do when you were a kid versus what you’re doing now?

Since you’re here, check out my newest release, Summer Stock!

  1. I think it’s cool that you were a high school art teacher for a while. I had a friend who did that and really enjoyed it.

  2. My sister loved her Barbies, too! Me, I just liked making up stories. So, it worked out, I guess? Glad it’s all worked out for you, too, even if you moved through a few things before you figured out where you needed to be!
