When I was in primary school my dream job was being a doctor. I wanted to be one for years.
By the time I got to Year 9 my dream had changed and journalism and the media had taken over. I even had a job on a statewide newspaper as a local correspondent and when I was nearly 18 I was chosen as one of 5 young people in the state to work on the youth focus pages in the state's daily newspaper. The one problem with journalism was that I couldn't write my own material - it takes years to be a feature writer and I wasn't sure how I would cope with years of garden openings, traffic accidents, local crime and the like until I had earned the reward of something more challenging.
I do also confess to wanting a job as a radio announcer (worked at the local radio station for that one - even did a couple of ads) but I didn't like the sound of my voice so I let that go.
And since I have been in the "real world" I have done a myriad of jobs. How fortunate to live in a world with so many opportunities.
