I bet you didn’t know that I have a college degree did you? I do. I have my BA. I majored in Criminal Justice and Forensic Sciences with minors in Legal Studies and Psychology. I actually started my master’s program.
I had dreamed of being a Criminal Psychologist – think Criminal Minds type of stuff. I had actually planned on getting there someday. When my nephew was born, I went with my sister to find a daycare. I was with her, I couldn’t handle the idea of that sweet little perfect guy getting cared for by a stranger. I quit my job at the law firm and started watching him. I haven’t regretted it ever in my life.
A few years later, I started my master’s program online. Quit a year later, it didn’t seem hard enough. Weird, right? Anyways, it seemed to me that the road to get the job I wanted involved years of unpaid work. That wasn’t going to work out for me.
After a few years of teaching, a one year stint as a mail carrier, more teaching, I went into real estate. A few years later, I met John. Now, we have a house, 2 dogs, 2 kids and I work from home.
Which job would be my dream job? The hardest one of all – being a stay at home mom. I could never imagine having a job that required me to be away from these guys all the time. It is the most fun, and the hardest thing I have ever done. Granted, I still have a job, but that would be my dream job. Just caring for my little babies.
What is your dream job? Is it the one you have now?
