18 Again

When I grow up I want to have my body of eighteen, with all my old guy memories. I’d be just old enough to drive and beg a homeless guy to buy me beer. My memories of war and college would be in the distant future as I enjoy living in the moment. I’d peruse writing and wood working, endeavors I now enjoy while hoping my grandkids soon arrive.


I want to be Journalist

Growing up, I always loved writing. I wrote short stories and poems and other written work just to show it off to my friends. I fell in love with books especially plays. My favorite book The Catcher in The Rye and my favorite play A Streetcar named Desire, are what inspired me to write. Both works were so amazing to be and wanted me to do what they do. Then I fell in love with the show House and Scandal. The writers of both shows made me realize how in love I was with how their mind worked just to make a show millions of peopl watched and loved. I want to be that person. I majored in Journalism because it’s about writing and also media production. That is my goal and I will make it happen.

When I grow up I want to be…

not grown up, childlike in the best ways
happy and healthy, not necessarily wealthy or wise
a good partner, friend, and family member
intentionally unemployed
intentionally occupied, but not so busy that I can’t take any random moment (or year) I want to do something random

So what I want to be when I “grow up,” I rather this be sooner than later is a renowned photographer, Robert Pattinson’s wife, act in film, and a successful doll business owner.

You know when I was a kid I wanted to be a witch when I grew older. Truth is I would still like to be a witch I just know its unrealistic…

Growing up?

No way!

I fear the next step would be growing old.
