From this week’s prompts:
4.) If you could change career paths now and be anything you wanted to be…what would you be and why?
Once upon a time, long ago, if you had asked me what I wanted to be, I would have told you a “business woman”. I will be honest, I had no idea what that even meant or what that person did. To me, that just meant lots of money and success. Even as I entered college, I had no idea what I was majoring in or why really (marketing).
Fast forward to today and I find that I have been working as a buyer for the past 7 years. It’s not a bad job, but not something I had ever thought about doing. While I don’t have any regrets, if I could go back to college and “do it all again”, I would have majored in History and become a history professor (specializing in the Civil War era).
I think it would be so rewarding working with college students who are just as interested as I am about this time period. I love to read and watch anything I can on the subject. It’s my passion and I would love to share it with others.
