This Week's Prompt: This is a free week to write about something that fits the theme of your blog.
Last week I missed The Girl Between The Lines prompt, that I really wanted to write about. So today I bring you last week's prompt.
" We all imagined what our lives would like when we were "all grown up"... how does that compare to what your life looks like now?"
You know how some kids change what they want to be when they grow up every so often. I remember not really changing it. I wanted to be a teacher, for as long as remember. I remember having this ping-pong table at our house, and when it was time to play outside, me and my cousins would play school. The ping-pong table was green, and big, and it looked like a chalkboard, and we would literally use it as such. I would be the teacher and my brothers and cousins would be my students. I would even make a roll sheet to look like the ones that the teachers have.
As I got older, being a teacher stayed with me. It was in college where I really realized that I enjoyed working with children.
Another thing that I dreamed about when I was little was going to college. My parents were always encouraging us and telling us that education was important. So I knew that I wanted to go to college.
Another goal was that by age 25, I wanted to have a college degree, my career set, married and possibly a baby on the way.
Where am I right now? Well I graduated from college a year ago. And I working as a tutor and job hunting to try to get more experience working with kids. But as of 1 week ago, I have been questioning whether educating is my main goal. I think I've come at a crossroads, because I'm not sure what I want to do. And I'm getting a little anxious about it.
I'm turning 25 this year, I have graduated from college, I haven't officially started by career, and prince charming is nowhere in sight. At 23, I was freaking out about not "having my life together", but now I'm . I'm still trying to figure myself out. I'm enjoying life as much as I can right now and i'm excited to see what happens next. So many people around me seem to have their path set, which I admire, and some like me are on our way. And although I might get anxious and frustrated because things aren't going the way I planned them to be, I know it's going to be okay.
How do your "when I grow up" plans compare to your life now?
