- “What do you want to be when you grow up?” A question I was asked one time. Shoutout to you, Dr. Tilson. 👨🏼⚕️
As a kid I loved creating businesses. (My poor mom.) Baking, washing cars, recycling metal from old signage, ironing pleated slacks. Pleated!!! Who the fuck trusts a 12 yr old to get the pleats straight? 😆
Then I grew up & the thought of being anything or doing whatever the heck I wanted to do was foreign. I thought my career had already been chosen for me.
15-27 became a whirlwind of vocations.
I worked in a plant nursery, accounting dept, restaurant, department store, taught myself how to code, learned to record music in a studio, became an admin assistant then up & quit. I freelanced as a web designer & writer, then took a whack at nannying. I modeled. Quit modeling. Went to grad school. Graduated. Then went back to modeling.
Now I look back & try to work up an ounce of self-satisfaction but all that comes is a dull palpitation. I want to be kind.
