What I Am Going To Be When I Grow-Up!

I have made a decision! One that I am really, really happy about and one that I am really, really excited about. I have decided what I want to be when I grow up! At the start of February, I posted about lists and how I was narrowing down my choices and really putting thought into what I want to do. And then, a week or so after that, I posted about what I am looking for in a career. Well, my lists, and thinking and research has all paid off because I have decided!

There were several things that became evident as I made a list of commonalities between careers. Commonalities between things I was looking for in a career and things I wanted to avoid. No career was perfect but I felt I needed to really be confidant in what I wanted to do. For a long time I have wanted to be an event planner. I love planning events. But, there has been something holding me back, something I wasn’t so sure about. It was a risk to start a business from the ground up and sure, I could work for someone else for a few years but it just wasn’t really what I wanted to do. Once I realized this, I started seriously considering other careers and am SO EXCITED about what I have decided.

After a lot of thought, planning, dreaming and consideration I have decided that I am going to become ALLIE, THE TEACHER!

That’s right! I am going to become a teacher. I am going to come back home this Summer and volunteer my butt off and then apply to start school in September 2012.

From a young age I always wanted to be a teacher but somewhere, I got thrown off the track. And you know what? That is totally okay! I am glad I have taken time to try out different careers, time to travel, to think, because I will be a better teacher for it. I am 100% more confidant in my decision now that I ever was before.

There are so many things I love about a teacher’s career and I promise I will share why…but not until tomorrow!
