So a few weeks ago, some blog peeps that vlog on Fridays had an interesting prompt that I wanted to do, “How do you compare to your high school aspirations of yourself,” er something like that.
Well let’s see, high school self never imagined I’d be in grad school. Shoot, I didn’t know I was going to go to grad school until a year after I finished undergrad. And to go to library school of all things? NEVER saw that coming. I distinctly remember scoffing at a girl who mentioned that her dad was a librarian. I was like, say what? Like people CHOOSE to be librarians? ( I just imagined stern, grumpy old ladies just grew in libraries like a crop, haha)
When I was a kid, I went through phases. I wanted to be an editor of a publishing company or newspaper (mind you, I’ve never worked on a newspaper or yearbook or ANYTHING related to the field.) Then for a while, I wanted to be a children’s book author. One of my ideas was, Pete the Penguin Goes to Paris, and it’d be a series full of critters taking trips to foreign countries and titles bursting with alliteration.
The only thing that is “on track,” is that I always imagined I’d be getting married around 27-28. Did I picture it’d be to a dude like Ale? Oh hecks no, haha. I was totally into Abercrombie poster boys back in the day. When I met Ale, I thought, whoa, you’re so not my type but I’m beyond intrigued (I’ll get into that story later in the month, I promise) .
So yeah. That’s my story. Here’s to hoping you have a great week 😀
Is there a vast difference between you of way back when and you now?
