I sense some dishonesty here. You did photography as a 13-year old at trade shows??
Nurse/Professional chef??? For some reason that doesn't make ANY sense to me. Every single person I know in professional cooking works 70 hours per week, and everyone I know in medicine works 50+ hours per week.
Doesn't. Add. Up.
Nice try, though.
uh its what you wanted to be at that age not what you did buddy.
I also wanted to be an astronaut at a young age.... and as I grew up i wanted to be a Mission Control Specialist.
it seems a lot of people want to when they are young. i remember back then I saw a video on how astronauts train. after seeing them do the g-force machines and stuff i chickened out and decided that it wasn't for me
What are you doing now: Currently full-time junior student at UC Irvine aspirations changed and now as a 21 year old I'm fixated on getting my BA in Criminology and completing a 2 year paralegal program to get my certificate and become a paralegal.
What are you doing now: Majoring in Electrical Engineering and pursuing a double major in math (when the classes are open). Not sure if I will ever get the double, though.
Reason for each: NBA player- love basketball. The reason I never pursued is because I was never extraordinary at basketball, which is obvious, haha
Vet- Love animals. The reason I never pursued this is because I don't think I could deal with failing to save the animals. It would destroy me. I know you still save a lot as well. But that's a hard failure to accept (for me). I do regret this decision sometimes (even though I like EE).
Lawyer- I like to argue. I like the idea of doing that for a living and that (theoretically) you win or lose based on who has proven their case more logically and concretely with evidence.
Electrical Engineer- My dad is an EE, so I grew up around it my whole life. I enjoy math and sciences. I respect the profession immensely, as it is one that requires intelligence in order to find solutions to problems. You don't just regurgitate shit you have memorized from a book that you will forget the next day. It is a degree that I will feel proud of when I graduate and can look at proudly. I like the active thinking and how each problem can be unique and have a different route to solving it.
