Some say that we choose our occupations. Others say that our occupations choose us. Which happened for you?
So often we forget about those first little inklings of purpose that we catch in the midst of childhood. What did you want to be when you grew up? What made you choose the occupation that you are today?
(For me, my career choices ranged from a concert violinist – though I’ve never picked one up in my life – to pastry chef in a five star hotel to a journalist with a degree from NYU. Today, I’m still a student at Marywood University and a working copywriter for an internet marketing agency. I’m glad for the choices I made that got me here, although I wonder what my life would be like if I had decided to go to culinary school or pick up a violin.)
