Dream Job

Today is Day 2 of #Blogtober14, brought to you by Helene in Between and The Daily Tay. Today's topic is "dream job when you were little/what is it now?". To play along, check out the daily prompts here.

While recently rummaging through my closet at my parents', I came across a scrapbook that I had made for an assignment waaaaayyyy back in Grade 8. One of the pages we were challenged to make was about our dream job. This is what it looked like...

No, I didn't want to be a dancer, who knows why that picture was put in there. But, like any 12 year old girl, I did want to be a Marine Biologist. And apparently, according to my Grade 8 self, if that fell through, a makeup artist. Ha! Marine Biologist it was.

Fast forward 15 years... Marine Biologist it still is. This has been my life. I would say my job[s], but it's not work when you love what you do.

And while I strayed away from the marine side of things, before eventually coming back, I wouldn't change a thing about the path I've taken...

This is my favourite animal that I've worked with, Maya the musk ox.
2 days old and 25 lbs  //  my fave pic of all time  //  almost 200 lbs!

What was/is your dream job?
