The Friday Five

Cleaning out the old homestead is making me wax nostalgic. Five things I wanted to be when I grew up:

1. A cowboy, like that's a shocka.

2. A teacher.

3. I wanted to be a biochemist just like the grad student who babysat me the summer I was 10. I had no clue what a biochemist was, but I wanted to be one.

4. Heavily influenced by Dr. Kildare, I wanted to be a doctor.

5. A writer. As close as I got was writing Heath stories (Big Valley fan fiction) for the amusement of high school friends and  writing computer programs.

What did you want to be when you grew up?


  1. A nurse, a teacher, a wife, a mom, a writer.

    The only one I didn't turn out to be was a nurse. :)

  2. I wanted to be a Mom and an Awana leader - check, check

    And Erica, I think you did put in some nursing time.

  3. Rich and famous, but had no actual idea doing what!
