What do You Want to be When You Grow Up?

There’s a new meme going around the blogosphere, and I got tagged by Brett Kelly. Now I’m supposed to tell you guys what I want to be when I grow up.


When I was a wee tot, I dreamed of being a dragon. I’d get to terrorize small villages, breathe fire, and fly. What boy doesn’t want that?!

Later on, I realized that I was predisposed not to be a dragon. Apparently I only have human genes.


I have always been into woodworking, and carpentry was the chosen profession of two uncles and my grandfather. Thus, it seemed like a natural choice.

But then I realized that I wasn’t very good at it. Plus I found out that carpenters often work outdoors in the elements. That’s not for me.


Since middle school, I’ve had my sights on being a lawyer. I want to make difference in the world. In fact, my high school voted me “most likely to change the world.”

The cool part is that I’m almost there. In exactly 8 weeks I’ll have a J.D. in my hand. I’ll take the bar exam in July, and hopefully be a licensed attorney this fall. I can’t believe I’ve come this far.

What next?

Honestly, I haven’t thought past the J.D. I’ve got a job working for a great nonprofit organization. Who knows where that will take me?

You’re it!

That’s enough about me. To keep this meme going, I’ve got to tag five people. Here you go: Brett Kelly, Editor at Top Law Student, Kian Ann, Lisetiffner, and Christopher Johnston.
