I can't remember dreaming of being anything. I mean, I considered various careers and how I would like them, but I never really took to anything. I
used to tell people that I wanted to be a 'doctor' or 'lawyer' or 'teacher' - basically, just vague things so that they'd leave me alone about it.
Mostly, I just wanted to be outside working with plants and animals, or reading or writing or singing or drawing. I have never been able to narrow
down "what I want to do". So, I just do whatever I feel like I should do.
So far, I've been a plant geneticist, a caregiver, a psychiatric nurse, website consultant, and am currently a web developer and also have a small
creative business (art, craftwork, textiles) on the side that I work on in my spare time when I'm not working in my multiple gardens. My ultimate goal
is to be a farmer so that I can work at home all the time, so this is what I am saving my money for.
For someone who just kind of floats through life, I feel like I've accomplished a lot.
Mostly, though, I just want to be happy and confident when I grow up. I think I'm getting close to that, though I'm not sure I'll ever actually grow
up. I'm too dorky for that.
