15 Day Challenge Link-Up: Day 14

Almost done with the 15 Day Challenge!  It was nice to link of with some new friends in the Blogosphere during these last two weeks!

Day 14: What did you want to be when you grew up? What are you now? 

When I was growing up, I really wanted to be an architect.  However, I didn't realize that what I actually wanted to do was interior design/landscaping.  I used to spend hours pouring through all of my dad's home improvement construction books, drawing house plans for my future home, and designing gorgeous decks and yards that I would someday own.  I even nerded out on actual architect plans that my uncle would bring me to "play" with.

Well, I completely lost sight of this obsession until I began to decorate my first apartment, and continued to become re-obsessed with design, decor, and more recently, actual home improvements to the condo that Tim and I now own.  

I actually forgot how much I used to long to be an architect until I sat to write this post.  Funny how true passions never fade, isn't it?
Now, I'm a Content Data Analyst at an information company that researches government bid opportunities.  It's nowhere near what I wanted to be when I grew up, but I do actually use a lot of the skills I learned in my college tech writing classes.  It makes it so I can do all of my hobbies and passions in my off time, so I'm grateful for that.  It don't think that I would enjoy being in a business where I was constantly worrying about insurance and where my next check was coming from, so I've always been hesitant to pursue any creative led roles.

What did you want to be when you grew up?
