#11 30DoB - Ever see yourself doing what you're doing?

Ha! Yes! As a matter of fact I'm pretty sure I was conditioned to be a teacher since the day I was born. My parents were both teachers and although they told me multiple times....DON'T DO IT......I think they were secretly hoping I would follow in their footsteps.

The only other thing I could ever imagine myself doing is Interior Decoration. I LOVE LOVE LOVE decorating our house and putting colors together and making things look gorgeous. The only problem is I'm too broke to make our house look the way I want. haha. If I thought I could have made it into a career that would be successful in my small town I would have. But...truth is, nothing like that will strive unless you're in a larger city. And, we already have one interior designer in our town, so, 2 would definitely flop.

I'm happy in my career. There are many days I think about choosing something else. Something where I know my expectations for the day and as long as I get them done I'm golden. But...then people remind me that with any job comes criticism and I guess what I deal with isn't that bad. However, an office job doesn't have Grandparent's Day like we did yesterday.

I just wish they hadn't taken the creativity out of teaching and started making us do the dog and pony show. It's as if my lessons don't matter but as long as I say this and do this, I'm good. Not so much in this school system, but definitely in my former one.

How about you?

  1. Not at all!! I sort of fell into my job and it was just something I was good at but not passionate about.

  2. I may have to copy and paste this list and save it. i'm always wanting daily post ideas and this so would help. I love link ups esp daily and weekly ones.

  3. I definitely think parents influence us. Both my parents worked an office job and here I am in my cubicle! I don't think I thought of anything besides business!
