What Is Your Dream Job, and Why?

When I was in Junior High and High school I never gave much thought into what I wanted to be when i grew up. Honestly, I thought I would never know. Stressing about it was not something i wanted to do. Yet, I did.

Here we are so many years later. I'm a mother of three young children. Also, currently in my third painful year of college. Seriously, three years and I'm still considered a freshmen. I'm not completely sure which bothers me more. The fact it has been three years and I'm not a Nurse yet or the fact that I'm still a freshmen.

Nevertheless, I am in college and I am making it one step at a time towards my goals. I love being a stay at home mom. Also, I love working. 

When I was 16 years old I became a C.N.A. There have been times of unemployment, but that is what I consider being a stay at home mom. As of right now I am staying home so I can also go to school. It just was not practical to do both. The last semester was a failure. But honestly who can make it through dissecting a cat while being pregnant? Somehow I made it through almost half of that semester, and had to drop it. My morning sickness was unbearable. Yet I hid it very well. The first 19 weeks of the pregnancy with baby girl were horrible. I did not gain any weight really until the third trimester. Which was OK for me, so don't panic. She was healthy and 7.6 lbs. 

I love children, babies especially. I have even thought of being a surrogate. Not sure how my husband would take that one. 

After thinking long and hard about what I wanted, and going through the notions I decided I want to be a Midwife. With my obsession over pregnancy, breastfeeding and everything baby this career just fits me. 

It will take 7 years of Nursing, and a Masters degree to reach that goal. Did I mention that I'm still a freshmen? 

Thankfully, I am almost done the pre-reqs for it. After this semester I have Physiology, Micro-biology, and a humanities elective. That is 2 or 3 more semesters. Maybe by then I will be a sophomore. Luckily I'm currently in my 20's and there is hope to make my goal before 30. Hopefully I'm not setting the bar up too high. 

With that said, wish me luck at braving another semester and cat dissection. 

What is your dream job?
