When I was young (I would say about third or fourth grade), I decided that when I grew up, I was going to be a veterinarian. I told everyone this throughout my childhood and teenage years and I entered college with a pre-vet major. And I completed two years of school with studies in the Veteranarian Medicine field.
During my second year of college, I had two roommates who were in the process of applying to vet schools and I saw that it was brutal. On top of that, while I managed to pass my science classes, I was really struggling with just passing the classes. So, it was at that point, I decided to change my major.
Because I didn’t want to waste all of the science classes I had already taken, I moved into the zoology field for a semester and then into education. I finally settled on a degree I enjoyed when I found that I was passionate about my English classes. So, with dreams of becoming an editor at a book publishing company, I graduated with an English degree.
So, seven years of college and four majors later, and what am I doing? I am working at a desk job for a mortgage company. I did work for a magazine publisher when I first moved to Nashville but that company went out of business and I had to find a job to be able to support myself.
And, nine years later, I’m still at that job. Part of the reason I started blogging is so that I would be writing once in a while again and then when I came across the opportunity to blog book reviews, I jumped on it.
It’s crazy where life takes us. When I was in middle school and high school, I never would have dreamed that I would be working in the business class and living in Nashville, TN.
