Are you doing what you planned to do? - Page 2

post #31 of 35
I went to 6th form college wanting to do sciences and took political science as an off course just to keep me sane and give me something not numerical and ended up staying an extra year to change to sociology, political science, community studies and I kept the chemistry to keep me sane from all the essays

I have a BA (Hons) in politics and had great profs so am interested in maybe going back for my MA or getting a job in politics. I worked as a research assistant to an MP through university but gave it up to move here and can't work in a job like that with a temporary visa, but as soon as I get resident status, I will probably start applying for jobs in politics.

So atm, no, but by next year, hopefully yes.

I would have loved to be a vet I just couldn't grip the concept of maths, so I dropped it.

I would def have to say NO. I am coming up on my ten year and I have been in school the entire time. thankfully I am finally graduating in a couple of weeks. How many people can almost make it to their 10 year without ever having a full time permannet job? Anyway I have changed my mind multible times.

I first wanted to be a Forest Ranger
Then went to Politcal Science
Then wanted to be a college proffessor in Archaeology
Then Decided to be a librarian
Finally settled on lawyer.

Hows that for an evolution.

and I got a degree in all these disciplines!!
I am glad I finally am graduating.

This time last year I thought me and my ex would be living together and planning a wedding at least! I was also planning on being a teacher.

Now I am single (well, as single as it is possible to be with gorgeous men flinging themselves at you at every turn ), and training to be a magazine journalist/features writer.

This is the first time I have been happy in years and I love my life right now.

No, never in a million years did I see myself as a Masasge Therapist when I was in school. I wanted to be a lawyer, but my parents wopild not let me take college prep courses in high school, saying I would just get married and have a bunch of kids, so education was wasted on girls.
At some point, I would like to be a doula, (an assistant to a midwife) and do Labor and Delivery Massage. Since there is no birthing center here, it is unlikely that will happen any time soon. Maybe dawnofsierra and I could team up! I love what I do now, and I have a job I like, so I will stay there until an opportunity to something different with massage, or SO decides it is time to go again.
