Ah, its time for yet another “Get to Know Us” here at There’s No Competition. The question posed to each of the bloggers was based on the ever popular question that inevitably is voiced by extended family or friends of family at every graduation, wedding or family reunion: what do you want to be when you grow up? The crew here responded to the question at 3 different points in their lives: when they were a little kid, when they were graduating from high school and currently.
Little Kid: Dolphin trainer
After High School: Doctor
Now: Anything that pays me enough to pay off my debt
Little Kid: First female President of the
After High School: Journalist
Now: Tax and Estate Planning Attorney (but if that doesn't work out, I'll be Sandra Gay's Pimp)
Little Kid: When I was in kindergarten I wanted to be a vet this was until I was 10. Then I decided that I wanted to be a lawyer and if that didnt work a doctor.
After High School: Family Law Attorney or International Business Attorney
Now: I just want one job and not three. I want a job that I go to and have at least one day a week off from. Something that I dont have to run out every summer and compete with highschool students for a lame ass job because I have my summers off. Oh yeah and something that pays enough to cover the loans, that would be good. Prostitute maybe?
Little Kid: Architect/engineer
After High School: computer programmer
Now: male stripper
Little Kid: When I was little I wanted to be an Dr. (MD).
After High School: After finishing high school I still wanted to be a Dr. (MD).
Now: Plans have been severely altered. Now when I am done with law school, I hope to land a job at a big time IP law firm and work there for a minimum of 5-7 years (hopefully make partner) and if I don't make partner "settle" for work as an in house IP lawyer for either a Biotech company or a really good research university.
Little Kid: Lawyer
After High School: Lawyer
Now: Trial Lawyer (See, now aren't I just annoying even more now?)
Little Kid: When I was little, in fifth grade, for graduation, we were each asked what we wanted to be when we grow up and it was put into our yearbook. I said I wanted to be an attorney or an actress. I really wanted to be an actress more at the time, but I really loved watching LA Law with my folks and we had just done mock trial for our class.
After High School: I had always thought I would die young because I did not envision myself doing anything after high school. All I knew was you go to college, but then what? When I started college, I was interested in both medicine and law. I was pre-law with a communications emphasis when I entered college, but that changed after a semester...
Now: I just want to be happy.
Little Kid: Stripper
After High School: Stripper
Now: Stripper and Rapper (life ain't nothing but bitches and money!)
