At first I wanted to be a veterinarian, because I love animals. But I'm also too sensitive to see animals suffering, or stupid people bringing in their animals to be euthananized for no reason.

Then I wanted to be an archeologist, around the age of 10, but it's alot of studying and I'm not good in school...

I wanted to be an actress for a while because I did theater all my life and I was good at it. But I don't have the patience and strength to go through everything it takes to become one.

Then it was a big blank, I had no idea what I wanted to be. I love children so I became a nanny, until last year, I opened my own home daycare And it's the best job for me, no boss, no employees, noone to answer to, I was born to be my own boss. I never kept a job in my life, I hated working with other people and working FOR someone. Now I work for myself. I may not be earning as much as if I had a normal job "out there" but I love what I do and I'm finally happy!

TTC since August 2008

what did you want to be when you were growing up? I wanted to be a vet...
did you follow your dream?? Nope...hotels was the family business...hotels is what I do now.
if not what stopped you?? Besides the family business, my step-dad once told me when I mentioned at the dinner table what I wanted to be, that there's no way I could do it...the schooling and the grades needed were beyond what I could do because if his daughter couldn't do it, I definitely couldn't...My mom wonders why I don't like my step-dad...

***A HUGE thanks to marriedc for the awesome siggy!***

I wanted to be a teacher.

While, I sub now, no I didn't follow my dream. The older I got the more I realized I hate the public school system and private schools don't pay well at all. My SIL works at least 50% than a regular teacher and gets paid about half of what she could make in the public system.

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my siggy!

what didn't i want to be when i was growing up? some of the ones i can remember: a national geographic photographer, a flight attendant, a teacher, a zoo keeper... etc. etc.

no, i'm currently none of the above. i feel like i haven't found my calling yet. i would LOVE to work with animals and was offered a position in the front office of our area's best clinic but i don't think i could handle the "bad" parts of the job (seeing sick and suffering animals, etc.). if i were in the states i'm almost positive that i'd be a teacher (though i'm not sure if it would be teaching adults, adolescents or children) but here in italy i would have to be an ENGLISH teacher and i honestly just don't really feel passionate about that (i love to reach but teaching ESL doesn't necessarily appeal to me ).
thank you bonnie (cavewoman) for my beautiful siggy!

cycles 1-16: TTC naturally, all BFNs
cycle 17 & 18: not TTC (due to diagnostic tests)
october 14: RE appt with follow-up hysteroscopy + saline sonogram... TUBES ARE CLEAR!
