Interviewer: So, when you first started doing x did you know that it would become what it has.
Super Successful Business Person: No, I had no idea! I was just doing my thing with no ambition, whatsoever and BAM, I became successful.
Well, that probably WON'T be me.
It is kinda embarrassing to admit, but I think/hope/dream I am going to be successful at EVERYTHING I do. I thought I was going to be a *famous* engineer. Before I graduated, I saw myself speaking at conferences, writing (engaging) papers, explaining how to best implement a new technology into fighter jets... Instead, I was doing testing, editing papers explaining old technology, running errands - like mailing off classified boxes. It sucked.

Then I started working at a for-profit school a.k.a a complete rip-off, pretend-education, joke-of-a-school. I can't even type the name because 1.) They would probably sue me with their super high-priced attorneys and 2.) if I type it out, I will be seeing their ads in my gmail for months. This school charged for an associate's degree about twice what I paid for a bachelor's degree at a private school. And um, I am STILL paying off my student loans! Honestly, I did not have extremely high hopes of becoming super successful working there. But I ended up getting fired, anyway.
So THEN, I started vlogging. And I immediately saw myself as one of those famous mommy vloggers who just shows her everyday life and people watch - and they get thousands of subscribers and sponsers... Yada Yada. Well, I stopped vlogging. I got sick of it. I got sick of showing off my junky, dirty house. I got sick of ALWAYS carrying the camera. I got sick of spending time editing. Do you know that I spent a good 1.5-3 hours editing every.single.night? Honestly, I LOVE editing videos. I just don't love spending time every.single.night. And, making those videos is like entertaining company. It is really nice, sometimes - just not everyday, ya know?

Ha! We'll see how that goes.
