Me, circa..umm 1988??!? Gotta love the pink boa, fake pearls, fake cash register & pink hat w/ my footie PJ's
This week's list from MOOREASEAL's 52 List Project made me think back to the literally a simpler time without cell phones, computers were NOT in every home, and when VH1 still played music videos all day long. I was born in 1985, (Yes, I love that Bowling for Soup song), and thinking back on my childhood dream jobs well I have to blame the times. Bugs Bunny cartoons were still on TV regularly, the wave of Disney movies from Little Mermaid to Pochantas were coming out in theaters, and you still had to wait 6 months to a year to get these lil gems on VHS! A doctor told my mother I should never be a stewardess because of my missing low tones in my ears & a man took hold of an entire summer of my childhood because people thought he killed his wife Nicole Simpson...No lie I was so confused w/ the whole OJ thing...Beetlejuice...Orange Juice...OJ? A new Goosebump book by R.L. Stine was always by my bed and then any joke book I could get my hands on!
That lil girl up there had some big dreams & grew up to have even bigger ones...

Me over the weekend at 27 years old
Well, some of my dream jobs have changed and the realization that "Big" & "Little Mermaid" were just movies has spurred a whole new slew of dream jobs. 13 years of school, counting kindergarten, 6 years of college, & 2 degrees later & about 17 years of I guess life experience...I think I'm found what I really want to do with my life...dreamingly. I did forget to add Writer when I took the picture and that will ALWAYS be my dream job.
My Current Dream Job List
1.) An Engineer
2.) A Stewardess
3.) A Cupcake & Sweets Shop Owner
4.) A Mom
5.) A Social Media Consultant on the side
6.) An Actress
7.) A Plus-Sized Model
8.) Run a Successful Blog & Online Shop of possible cupcake toppers!
9.) A Writer
10.) A Wife
Writing out this list made me remember that we have the power to make our own destiny. I currently do not have my dream job and I think I need to take the next year to move closer to any of these. Only the Mom one I'll put on hold for a rainy day in another two years or so hehe, but the others are obtainable & reachable. I just have to have the dedication, the control to keep going, and the passion. Oh the passion...that's the most important part! =)
