Is what you do professionally now, what you wanted to do when you were growing up? Is what you are doing a just a job or your career? Or are you still deciding what you want to do when you grow up?

I have to admit that I came across my exact job by accident, but it's turned out to be a great fit for me and I enjoy it.

I wanted to play music for a living. I did, I do, but I haven't done so well with that growing up part.

Absolutely not. I tried to get an education so I could go somewhere, which was a huge lie I believed. I got my paralegal training, a criminal justice degree (and a philosophy degree) and I'm below the poverty line while working 2 menial jobs. One is full time one is part time. I can barely afford to survive working myself to death. But hey, that's america...

Just another job, however, it does fall into my degree field.

I've always done what I love to do. There has never been just a job. I have been ... fortunate.

Well, I wanted to be a famous author by now, but that will have to wait. I also wanted to be a teacher, and I did succeed there. I switched from elementary to college level, though, and the latter is truly where I belong.

@MarvelAnn I am an adjunct and teach for three schools online. It is very, very difficult to get a full-time position these days. It has also become difficult to get even a part-time job online. I enjoy what I do; I will do it until I become cognitively impaired, but plan to scale back in five years when I turn 70.

It is just another job

When I was a child I wanted to be a doctor or a nurse. Later I didn't know what I wanted to do until I went back to school in my early forties and got a masters degree in social work. I am a clinical social worker in hospice and home health and love what I do. And no, I'm not an angel 🙂
