Did you guess correctly? What were your childhood career aspirations?


  1. Wow, I wanted to be these, too. Temporarily, anyway. I still love houseplans and used to try to draw them when I was little, and I daydreamed about being a fashion magazine editor when one magazine had college internships every summer. But the only thing that ever stuck is writing. And writers get to be so many things. :)
