I'm with Zoning Goddess. All I wanted to do at age ten was to write. I used to write little books and get my friends and teachers to read and critique them. It used to impress people.Zoning Goddess said:An author. I had a great fifth-grade teacher who steered me towards some of the best young-adult type books. I was always a big reader but that got me into more serious stuff. So I wanted to write novels.
As for why I'm not one, I discovered over the years that I have no talent for that type of writing. I just write staff reports, instead.
There is always the Mike DeVuono Farming Method for fun and profit.donk said:Either a farmer or an architect, or a combo of both.
Not good enough at math or drawing by hand to be an architect.
Farmer, not enough money to start up a farm. Then again i do deal with a lot of bull sh*t and jack a$$es so maybe its too far off from what i do.
Call it boredom or whatever....but I felt the need to spruce up my original post....NHPlanner said:I wanted to be the next Mosi Tatupu for the New England Patriots or the next Dwight Evans for the Red Sox or the next Ray Bourque for the Bruins or the next Kevin McHale for the Celtics....or all 4.
They are working at it.That is like legal in Canada, Eh?
