girl v. jobs I’ve always wanted

Jobs I always wanted…

Actress. (ages 6-9) – loud and obnoxious young girl growing up.

Air hostess. (ages 9-13) – brutally cut short when I stopped growing at 13.

Politician. (ages 14-14.25) – a couple of school debates and suddenly everyone reckons they’re David Cameron.

Person who saves the world. (Not a superhero) (ages 14.25-19 – when cruelly reminded that no one can make a difference on their own thanks to my major in poststructuralism)

Failed writer. (consistently and forever and ever)

Not a failure. (most days, but some days I don’t mind)

Puppy handler.  (probably the last two months)
