As this job search begins to take its toll on me...let's travel back in time and think about 13 things I wanted to be when I grew up
Thirteen Things about Tara
1…. Start your list here!
1.) Miss America...Although I have the looks (obviously), I just lost interest in this once I realized that pigeontoed girls wouldn't win it.
2.) A research scientist for Saint Jude. I was gonna be that chick who cured cancer.
3.) A know, the kind who miraculously made 90 grand a year...
4.) A food critic...forget it...just liked to eat. If I could make a living at being a fatty I'd do it.
5.) the person who scheduled Nick at Nite programming...this came from a comment from a high school history teacher who said, take something you love and turn it into a career. i love dick van dyke. not much money in stalking; this is the next best thing
6.) A tour guide at the buddy holly exhibit in Lubbock. Not even sure if they have tour guides there, but I'd be the first and only. This is the only way I know how to stalk a dead guy. RIP, oh greatest rock and roller EVER...
7.) A geneticist. I really don't even know what they do, but I loved the punnet squares in biology.
8.) A lobbyist. This one is not totally out of the question, but I need to do something to pay the bills while I'm in the process of becoming brilliant and persuasive.
9.) An author. Again, not totally out of the question. But, as I mentioned before, I like to eat. Therefore, this will be a part time endeavor. I will also learn to edit my work before that happens.
10.) An English as a Second Language teacher. Still wouldn't hate to do that...just got my masters in something a little more versatile.
11.) A pathologist. What the heck is a pathologist? All I know is that some of them look at poop. Why did I go through a phase where I wanted to look at poop. I'm really not even all that pumped up about my own poop.
12.) An events coordinator. This was a great goal of mine until I realized I'm not organized and I really don't like to attend events, much less coordinate them.
13.) A counselor at Youth Challenge. If someone would kindly retire, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks a bunch.

I remember that research scientist endeavor! I also had that same Miss America dream....I'm not pigeontoed, but, as it turns out, I'm not that good lookin'!
