How many of us are really working the jobs we want to do?

I just made it through 4 years of college to come out with one degree in the medical field, and decided to go back for my BA in English and Writing. Totally opposite ends of the spectrum, eh?

Holy moses Kiki! That's exactly me, cept I haven't earned my first degree yet. I vividly remember announcing to my friends in high school, after an exceptionally difficult physics test, that I wasn't going to to anything having to do with math or science for the rest of my life once I got out of high school. I wanted to do fun stuff with literature, journalism, communications, etc.

And now I'm a 3rd year Biomed student wondering if that's *really* what I want to be doing. You have no idea how much I envy people who are happy because they know exactly what they want to do.

You're putting a lot in the line when you decide to take such a leap off the path, and it takes a lot of confidence, guts and perserverance to be able to do it. Good luck on pursuing your second degree, and congrats on the first!

Kiki, just out of curiosity, what did you think you wanted to do in the healthcare field?

I wanted to be an elementary teacher...that was my dream since kindergarten. When I started the schooling though, I started to get nervous because I didn't like getting so far in debt by having to go to a university for 5 years. I ended up transferring to a community college and getting an associate's degree in computer science.

When I was in junior high I wanted to be an artist and go live in New York City or Paris.

When I was in high school I realized I wasn't really good enough to be a professional artist. I decided I wanted to be an English teacher because I'd always loved to read and I had a couple of teachers who encouraged me a lot and taught me how to appreciate literature even more than I already did. I admired them a lot and thought that inspiring young people would be a wonderful way to spend one's life.

Halfway through college I realized I'd be a lousy teacher. I was really down in the dumps for a while and felt like a loser. Then I decided since I'd always loved to write anyway, why not do it for a living? That became my goal, and I am now a journalist. I love it, although I do sometimes fantasize about being the lead singer of a rock band....

You know what's odd?

The I have a dream speech was given the week I was born....."I Have A Dream" by Martin Luther King, Jr,. Delivered on the steps at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC on August 28, 1963.

When I was a kid I mapped my life out but along the way. I didn't take the same road I planned and at 26 was nowhere near where I wanted to be. So...I just started at college all over again. During my freshman year I mapped a plan to lead me to Nursing Administration...which is my goal...I have so many great thoughts toward making the nursing shortage non-existant.

... I was tossed between computer information services and nursing in college. The decision to go into a medical field was because the science courses just came to me naturally and, coming from Michigan, I really wanted a job that was secure with good health benefits. I stayed with nursing because I really wanted to make a difference somehow with my life. For now I get to be a nursie that uses the 'puter. (I love my job at Mayo but I am not done enriching my life yet.)

I've wanted to be a vet for as long as I can remember, and though I've taken the extended scenic route to get here, I am less than 1 year away from getting my DVM.

To all of you that are wishing you were doing/had done something else *cough*Meggie*cough* or are stressed about loans *ahem*BC*ahem*, this is like the best time ever to be in school, federal Stafford loans are at 2.8%. It really doesn't get much better than that! You don't have to pay on the loans til you've been out of school for 6 months, hopefully in your good-paying job by then......

I'm technically in high school, now that school's out for the summer. My dream is to be a famous ballet dancer, hopefully with ABT. Do I count b/c I'm in high school, or not?

My childhood dream was to live in a fugue state. I think I'm achieving quite nicely.
