When I Grow Up

0 Posted by - February 13, 2013 - Reviews, Sweepstakes

Did you guys know what you wanted to be when you grew up?

I didn’t for a long time. I went through phases: President of the United States (when I was 6), missionary (when I was 10– not even kidding), teacher (when I was 14), nurse (when I was 18), and then in college I just sort of gave up trying to find that thing, because none of those things were really what I wanted.

Do you sense a theme, though?

Yep, I’m definitely a Caregiver. My ArchetypeMe profile quiz says I’m 31% Caregiver, 28% Intellectual, and 21% Creative. (In case you missed my last ArchetypeMe post, ArchetypeMe is a new website that is redefining “personal” search by helping you curate, express, and discover differently, through the filter of archetypes.) So I was on the right track with the missionary/teacher/nurse thing (and maybe even President of the United States, because when I was 6 I just thought you got to, like, give cookies to the whole country if you were President), but I hadn’t hit on the thing that made me feel fulfilled in all the different areas of my personality.

I got my English lit degree, mostly because that was the subject I loved most and I was under pressure to pick a major. And then I went into administrative work, where I stayed for many years, sort of branching out from time to time into customer support, or marketing, or accounting. It was fun, but not really fulfilling.

And during all that time when I’d been picking a major and sort of blindly stumbling through my administrative career, I’d been blogging. I was in love with blogging. I’d always loved writing, and I was pursuing a writing career on the side, too, but blogging gave me the instant gratification that I didn’t get from writing novels or essays or short stories. Those things fulfilled the intellectual and creative parts of me, and my caregiver side got to jump in with volunteer work in my different writing and creative organizations.

Then, suddenly, at 31 (this past summer), I found myself for the first time in my adult life without gainful employment. All that was left was my blog and my not-quite-off-the-ground writing career.

In a miracle of perfect timing, good luck, and (hey, let’s be honest) some skill on my part, the blog took off at just the right time and I found myself, finally, in a place where I felt really happy, challenged, and fulfilled in my career.

I’m still working on getting some more Caregiver in here (and stay tuned for an announcement on that in coming weeks), but for the first time in my life, what I’m doing every day gives me all of the good feels. And I am all about the good feels.

        Dude – congrats on NOT being pregnant! I was worried that was going to be your announcement. And then I would be worried that all the pins you tested would be cutesy ways to display pics of naked baby ass. Also, you can’t drink when you’re pregnant and your drunk-blogging (or blogging about your drunken escapades) are hilarious! Cheers!

    Pretty much. I like to help animals and not eat them, I have an obsession with food and clean eating (sans beer, margaritas and wine), yoga & road races, and I like to tell other people they should do the same.

    Also, I really think working in admin. isn’t my path either. But I guess most people hate their jobs. And as long as I get to spend the rest of my time dedicated to the things I love, I’m OK with that. For now.

    I’m am first Creative, then Intellectual, and last Caregiver. I suppose that means I’m an artistic know-it-all who just doesn’t give a shit. I do identify with your history. Mine is similar and equally lamentable in the job situation. When I was a kid I wanted to be a veterinarian…until I discovered that it involved watching animals suffer on a daily basis. NOPE! In college, I wanted to be a journalist, but ended up an administrator….then lost my job. Fortunately, I am blessed with an over-abundance of serotonin and such things don’t bother me. :)

    Well, I’m a perfumer, sci-fi writer, blogger, and work-from-home-mom, so the results came out fairly on the nose for me. It would be super easy to skew the results though, so I rate it on the same level as your typical Facebook quiz.
