EternalRain wrote:My dream is to have a career somehow working with literature, but beyond that I really don't know. I would love to publish a book and my dream would be to be an author, but besides writing I've also thought about working at a publishing company or being an English teacher or working in tv/film and even considered being a counselor of some sorts/careers in psychology.

But, in the perfect world, I'd love to be a full-time writer. I already know that I'm going to publish works on the side while teaching - I have a novel and a podcast up my sleeve right now, and I've been making good progress on both of them.

Given an choice, I'd pick the latter, but even if I were to go into psychology, I could still write on the side.At the same time, sometimes the thought of doing either of these things full time doesn't appeal to me at all. Sometimes, I feel like there's got to be something more to life than getting a steady job.
I feel like once I go for a degree, I'm stuck with it, because I'll be in too much debt to change anything.

Quick story: we we're at a party, and the kid was there with his friend, and he suddenly looked at me and started talking to me. His friend asked him if he knew me, and you know what the kid did? With so much pride in his voice, he said I'm his teacher. ♡), I love seeing them play and make friends, and most of all, I love seeing them grow in front of my own eyes.But yeah! Definitely going into teaching!

I used to want to be a doctor, a mathematician, but now I think I want to do research in fields like molecular biology and biochemistry (which means I'm hoping I can eventually secure a PhD *crosses fingers*)… I also like chem and physics and math and because of that I want a job which combines everything which I'm not sure I've found yet.

Right now I'm working on a degree in English (I'm dual enrolling in a college). It's a pretty general degree which is good cause I am always changing what I want to do.

LadySpark wrote:Hello, just an oldie who's back visiting for awhile.
I'm graduating with my BS in Psychology in May, and hopefully will be going straight into a Doctoral program for Developmental Psychology this coming fall. After completing my Ph.D, I'd like to become a clinician while I'm raising my family (to have a little more flexibility), and then eventually move into a position as a professor at a university.As for writing, I've started developing more concrete goals. … I've started to lay the plans for beginning my own preschool curriculum as well as having dreams to write college textbooks one day on child psychology. All of this to say, I really just want to educate and share my love for learning with others. I am so passionate about my field of study and it's really helped me figure out who I am and what I want to be. If all this fails, I'm moving to Colorado and opening up a bed and breakfast.

Biology is my major, while becoming a high school biology teacher is a goal, and reach goals would be to a) become an athletic trainer (by going through a master's program) or b) getting a Doctorate from going through a physical therapy program, and becoming a physical therapist.

I've wanted to be a dog mom for a while, and that goal has been completed as of Sep 2019!
