Ever since I was four-years-old I wanted to be a vet. That was until I was twelve. After watching numerous animal-related movies, animal hospital, and animal documentaries I realised that I couldn't be a vet due to if the time came to put an animal down, I didn't think I'd be able to do it. I get too emotionally involved with animals. And still, til this day, I believe that I wouldn't be able to be a vet due to that reason, no matter what people say about getting over it and used to it as it comes with the job. It's just not me.
But I still wanted to work with animals. I loved science and studied Biology and Chemistry throughout college and then went on to do Zoology at university. My parents believed that I was going to work with animals, too.
Funny how things change.
Now I'm out of university I've had a rapid change of heart as to what I want my career to be due to a number of reasons. Now I'm training to be a writer. People told me that I'd never be able to work with animals because I didn't get the grades or because of this reason and that reason. I wanted to prove them wrong and told myself constantly that I was going to be one of those people who worked her degree field.
Again, funny how things change.
Alana wants to be a vet and an interior designer when she's older. Jack wants to be a builder like his father. The twins, well who knows. When they get to that age maybe we'll find out what they'd like. I can't help but wonder though if that'll change or if they will go on to do what they're talking about.
