I wanted to be an astronomer. I didn't do well enough for a scholarship and my parents had no money to put me through college so I joined the Army. While in, what I witnessed made me want to stay. I ended up serving 12 years. Too much time on that path. I could never return to the previous. I am now an amateur astronomer and do what I can in that capacity while still holding down a job to support my family.

Oh, I salute you. Thank you for serving. My brother was in a similar situation. Though, I think he is going the whole 20 years in the Air Force. An amateur astronomer may know more than the professionals.

As a child I wanted to be a grade schook teacher. As I grew up I realized I am not patient enough to deal with some of the parents. So I changed career goals and became a nurse instead.

Best Answer

I think only people who are dedicated to education should be teachers. Very few do it because of the pay. You know their hearts are vested in it.

Best Answer

I do feel like teachers have the most important job in the WORLD! it's sad that their pay is not good. I did feel like that. i was dedicated. but i mean, i need to live too, you know?

Best Answer

Very true statements. Teachers do have the most important job. But think you said we all have to make an living.

Best Answer

I totally understand. I am dong a job to support my family now. It has nothing to do with my dream. Reality supersedes dreams when you have responsibilities to others.
