Your Smile On Fire

...from the song Xavia

in another universe... things on my list

I just wrote this huge post. But then I took it down because I decided I didn't want people reading it really, I just wanted to write it.


Just for fun, not because it matters, a list of things I might be interested in doing for a career if I wasn't so dead set on writing and teaching (to support the writing habit, lol.)

  • Some sort of culinary something. Like be a chocolatier! Yes!
  • Some sort of pediatric doctor but omg way too much school. If I was going to do that though, in some alternate universe where I love science and math, I would be a pediatic cardiologist, and not just because it's fun to say, even though it is.
  • Help kids. I don't really know what this would be though, a social worker maybe? But social workers... I don't know... I don't know a lot about them but sometimes I think they either can't help as much as they want to or they don't help as much as they should and it bugs me.
  • A therapist. But again with the school.
  • Own a coffee shop. In my dreams, I own a coffee shop and it is very sweet and nice. And I drink tea and hot chocolate instead of coffee, of course.
  • A film director.
  • A photographer, if only I had the patience and talent for it.

I was talking to one of my friends a while back, trying to get her to decide what she wants to do after high school. I try to do this periodically, wondering why so many of my friends have no idea what they want to do after high school and don't seem to care and why it bugs me so much. She said something about me being lucky that I knew what I wanted to do and I told her I'd known for so long that it was almost as if it wasn't even really a choice, it just was. Which is true. And I never really think about this but suddenly just now I wondered... if I wasn't so in love with writing, and I was like my friends who don't know what they want to do. What would I choose?
