Who Should you have been?

I was thinking about careers and how when people are young, others say things like, "He loves to look at the stars, someday he's going to be an astronaut or astronomer." I'm sure people said lots of things about who I was going to become because of the things that I either excelled at or became obsessed with.

When I get a chance I'm going to write about some of the men I was supposed to become. Who were you supposed to be?

My students used to say I should've been an actor, which is funny, because some of my relatives used to say the same thing when I was a kid. My Mam always said I should be a writer or a teacher. Funny that! My brother said I should be... a writer or a teacher!

There was an odd woman in the village on Achill Island where we used to go for holidays, and she used to say I should be a witch, but that's a whole other story.

My Da always said I should earn money.

if i was doing what i wanted to be doing when i was 7 or so i'd be heavily involved in politics. when people used to ask me what i wanted to be at that age i used to say president of the united states. how come i just turned out to be a queen in canada?
