Wednesday Randomness – When I Grow Up…


I’ve been missing in action for a little while, but I’m trying to get back on the bandwagon, starting with this week’s Wednesday post…What I Wanted to be When I Grew Up.

I was a little all over the place when I was a kid.

I wanted to be a marine biologist for a long time. Not to work at a place like SeaWorld. But to work with dolphins or whales in the ocean. That was, of course, before I stopped swimming in natural bodies of water. But that’s another story.


Then there was my FBI phase. That lasted quite a while. And I’m not sure where it came from, maybe The X-Files. I think it fizzled out about the time I told my mom about it and she laughed at me.


I think maybe I wanted to be a writer, but that was a little too abstract for me as a kid. Although I’m not sure why.

I did go through a serious phase where I wanted to be a photographer for National Geographic. I think that one might still be going on. But I’m not that good at photography.


I can tell you I damn sure never wanted to be an accountant. But if I could be as cool as this guy…


Yet somehow, that’s where I ended up. For now at least.

  1. LOL! I know accounting! Ew! I frankly HATED it, but that is how I made my living for way too long. (About 10 years.) How did that happen? I am still trying to decide what I want to be when I grow up. Maybe someday, before I pass on, I may figure it out. But in the mean time, I am still trying different things. The fun is in the journey.


  2. FWIW, you’d make a badass FBI agent. I feel like you’d be giving people “the look” a lot. In the meanwhile, I think you need a sign for your office that says Swiss Army Accountant.


  3. My cousin’s uncle is a U.S. Marshall. I love listening to his stories but I’m going to admit that I also like living my life fear and traumatic situation free. But I could see you as an FBI agent. Not a gun slinging type of person, no, but an investigative professional – yes.
