Day 14: Grow Up

Day 14: What did you want to be when you grew up?  What are you now?

Growing up, I had ambitions to be many things.
Of those, some were more entertaining than others.

[First] I wanted to be a boy.  I idolized my big brother and was a rough-and-tumble, always messy and dirty, little chub-a-lub.  I remember repeatedly asking my Daddio and Bubba, "Why can't I be a skin?"

[Second] After I started realizing I just wasn't going to be a boy.  I shared Sar's yearning for being Ariel from The Little Mermaid.  However, I didn't get all cute and dressed up like Ariel.  My longing to be a beautiful red-headed mermaid went as far as singing "Part of Your World" in the bathtub, and I would push myself up on the side (like Ariel did on the rock).  Then I would ask Mom why I couldn't sing as good as Ariel.

Dreams crushed.

[Third] I got over being a Disney Princess quickly and moved onto wanting to be a comedian.  I've mentioned before that my "jokes" were so bad, that my parents bought me a joke book.  I'm not sure if that was successful in helping that bad-joke-telling.  I wouldn't be surprised if I still thought I was funny, despite the bad jokes.  It is still my dream to appear on SNL. 

Today, I lead a super exciting life as a Logistician.

Most of the time when I say, "Logistician."  People respond with, "A what?"

I'm basically a logistics specialist.
But it is not special.

I deal primarily in configuration data management.  I won't go into the boring details of what we manage the configuration of, but I work for the US Navy and support our fleet everyday.

Did I ever think or dream that this would be my job/career?

Hell no.

Will it do for now?


I'm still holding onto my SNL dream.

Take Luck,
