wednesday. uncertainty

close to the end of grade 7, before graduating primary school, our teachers asked us to write down what we wanted to achieve in life. a career or calling for the future we wanted to share with our family and friends upon graduating.
and so, that children were called up to collect their graduating certificate while being dubbed a "future millionaire" or "ben just wants to live in a big mansion". and so it also came to be that i was called to collect my certificate. "Rhiannon - when rhiannon grows up, she wants to study early childhood education".

i always thought from an early grade school age that i wanted to work with kids. to teach. i never questioned it all through high school, i had apparently made up my mind without really considering anything else. 

now, half way through my 4 year degree, i find myself with no strong feelings for teaching. no strong feelings for any profession. and so i find myself uncertain of what i will do my eventual degree in primary education (my vision altered slightly from grade school) or if i will even use it at all in my future.

who says we need a big fancy career? a doctor, a teacher, a nurse, an engineer, a lawyer. i would be perfectly happy working in a little shop, i think.
