This is.. what I want to be when I grow up


a mother

In addition to that, when I grow up I want to be;

a jewellery designer
a fashion designer
a graphic designer
a marine biologist
a geneticist
a photojournalist
a journalist
a published author
a translator for Studio Ghibli
a teacher specialising in bilingual immersion education
a linguist
a speech therapist
an arts therapist
a sociologist
a psychologist
a perpetual traveller
a perpetual student
a philanthropist
a lady of leisure
a curator
a gallery owner

I have enough time to do them all don't I? The funny/scary thing is, I still haven't given up any of these dreams.

Thank you to Bug and Pop for this week's fun theme and to Handmaiden for guest hosting.

I've always wanted to own a gallery too!

Liesl said...

Melanie, I absolutely love your (very extensive) list. I have to say that there is just one (lady of leisure) that might be mutually exclusive of one or more of the rest!

Quite an eclectic range of occupations! Dream big!

Anastasia said...

what an awesome list!! i can see a few things Id love to do on there too...i love how you put 'Mother' first!!

Jenaveve said...

Great list...and you are probably inadvertently doing some of these already!

I can see a few on there that I would like to 'be when I grow up' too... but not a translator for Studio Ghibli, only because I'm not entirely sure what that is! :)

Jenny said...

Great list-I wouldn't be surprised if you did lots of these!

Dorothy said...

Good for you Melanie. It's great to have aspirations! Being a mother will help you achieve a few of your dreams, but lady of leisure won't be one of them! LOL

flossy-p said...

heee, you'd better get crackin m'dear! Looks like you're going to be busy, because of course you can do all that stuff!!! Of course you can!

Hila said...

gee, that's some list you've got there :)
I sincerely hope though that out of all of these, you get to be a mother.

Michelle said...

Thanks a long list you've got there!! The best of course is the 'mum' one, although I do like the sound of 'lady of leisure'!!!

Lisa [strickerin] said...

What an extensive list.

Here's to number 1 happening soon.

and what r u planning in yr spare time?

Cindy said...

This is one of the best lists I have seen so far. Excellent. I can recommend Mum, but I have to say the pay isn't very good but the hugs are fantastic.

Lilli boo said...

I identify with so many professions on this list and the beautiful aspect is that they intertwine with each other so much but especially with being a Mum...a profession I dearly recommend.... ditto with Cindy, the personal rewards however outweigh everything else!

Karin said...

I love the list. There are a few on there that I aspire to as well!

I hope the first thing on your list comes true very soon. ((((((((hugs)))))))

Bec said...

What a great list - I totally know what you mean. I feel like I need many many lifetimes to do all the things I like to do and be all the things I'd like to be. But most of all I hope you get to be the first thing on your list :)

i love your list. I'd love to be a published author.. Hmm, wouldn't that be sweet.

Oh and of course a lady of leisure.. but I'd like to be a lady who lunches too.. Hmm.

danica said...

Wow! I love this list :)

Maureen Reynolds said...

That's a great list, and I can see how some of them can be combined.

Just know that when the first one comes true, you will not be a lady of leisure for the next 20some years. ;-)

Here's to long lists of life dreams. It's the only way to be.
