Ignorance is Liz: U-turn

Let me take a wild guess. The question lingering in the back of your mind is, what do I really want to be when I grow up?

Whether you’re a freshman or a senior, your plans may not have gone, well, as planned. Your English course trumps your C++ class, or maybe you realized that, for the past four years, the subject matter for which you became a coffee addict (and consequently developed an ulcer) wasn’t marketable enough. It’s alright. Nobody’s judging you, or at least I’m not.

Ostensibly, it doesn’t seem like a trick question. It might require a one to three-word declaration. A lawyer, a teacher, an accountant, a rocket scientist, all or none of the above. Or, it might lead to a lengthy and long-winded explanation that ends in definitive incertitude. But the question is somewhat misleading because who you want to be isn’t usually who you will become. I certainly don’t mean this in the stop-dreaming-already or you’re-not-good-enough way. Please, do keep dreaming.
