"Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain."

Day 10: Dreams pt. 1

When I was little I wanted to be a ballerina.  That dream never came true.  But sometimes, if I'm alone on a slippery, solid floor, I twirl around on one foot and pretend to dance.  I did learn some ballet moves from my college roommate who was a real ballerina!

After that dream, I think I wanted to be a soccer player all throughout middle school and high school.  Then in high school I realized that I wasn't good enough (that one was painful, I told my coach where I wanted to go to college and he told me I would never make it, ouch!).  So I played soccer in college and had a good time, but that came to an end.  I still love soccer, but I don't get the opportunity to play much.

Also in high school, well, maybe it started in middle school, I started to want to be a school guidance counselor.  I loved our middle school guidance counselor, she was really great and nice and fun!  Everything that I wanted to be!  So I majored in psychology in college, thinking that was the career path I wanted to take.  Only to find out that I'm not really cut out for that type of work.  I have a hard time listening to other people's problems without getting down and taking them on myself.

So after college, I was thinking that I didn't really want to do anything in the field of psychology, but I wasn't sure.  So after a few failed job interviews, I decided it wasn't for me, at least for now.

So now I'm a farmer.  Back to the beginning.  Back to what I grew up with (kind of).

Still waiting for so many more of my dreams to come true.
