Sunday Scribblings

Did you "mis-spend" your youth? Absolutely!
What kind of kid were you? I was a good kid, but I was headstrong and independent, my parents and I butted heads all the time...it lead to me moving out at 16.
Worriesome to your folks? To say the least....
Mature beyond your years? I would have to say yes and no....I was mature enough that I felt like I was being treated like a baby at home but I was immature in thinking that my OWN baby would make that stop...I had him when I was 17...WAY too young....
Wild? Not so much, I didn't go all out with everything, I was more like cattle, part of the herd just to fit in...
Shy? To and extent yes, I had very low self esteem
How did you spend your time? Mostly smoking pot...all my friends did it, so I did it too...even though I hated the way it made me feel...other than that, I spent my time staying up all night and sleeping all day
Out of curiosity, how many of you knew "what you wanted to be when you grew up" and accomplished it? I didn't know then, I barely know now and I'm not "anything" yet lol...not to say I haven't accomplished anything yet, I just don't have a career...
How many times did you change your mind? About a million...when I was really little, I wanted to be a nurse...and I wanted to be a nurse until I realized that I would have to deal with people who vomit from time to time...I'm an emetophobe, so, me and vommiting, dont' get along very well! Then I wanted to be a veterinarian...then discovered I have allergies to just about any animal with hair/fur...so, not so much anymore. When I had my son, I started watching A Baby Story and discovered Midwifery...and wanted to do that until I discovered that some women throw up while they're in labour....see above. Right now, I'm playing around with the idea of something surrounding weddings....a dress shop or a consultant or renting out centrepieces and making crystal bouquets and favours.....who knows.
Wow....I made that answer really long!
Do you think your kid self would approve of you now? I would definitely approve of myself now, however, two years ago? Not so much. Glad things have changed!

After all is said and done, I think you have chosen an amazing path to follow.
You should be proud of yourself.
