Sister Style: When I Grow Up

I know a lot of people had tons of different occupations they thought about being when they were kids, but I really probably only had two or three. But librarian was one of them. I actually had a really hard time reading in school at first. I struggled and thankfully had some pretty great teachers along the way. Not to mention a very patient mom who worked with me at home as well. But once it all finally clicked, I found that I LOVED reading. Around that time is when the first Harry Potter book came out, and I was hooked from then on out. (HP forever!)

Other than loving to read, I also just loved how quiet libraries were. I've always been a bit of an introvert, and I think libraries are about the closest to being alone you can be in public. :) I also love putting things in order, so having to file books away all day sounded pretty great to me. 

It's kind of fun thinking about what you wanted to be as a kid. I don't have any regrets about not becoming a librarian, but if my path had gone that way, I still think it sounds pretty cool.

I did dream of being an artist when I was growing up. And a fashion designer. And I wanted to own my own daycare. And I spent weeks drawing out my own theme park after I found out about Disney World. Haha. I was, and am, and always will be a MIND CHANGER. Recently I learned about my enneagram type. I'm a 7, which is "The Enthusiast". It says I am "spontaneous, versatile, distractible and scattered"... and that could not be more true. If you're curious what you are, you can take a test here
