I wanted desperately to be a physician.

When they told me I had about eight more years of school to attend and being a recalcitrant student at best, I went into law enforcement.

At least I got the signature down pat! Ain't a soul on this Earth that can read it, except maybe a pharmacist!

I studied business management and became a manager in a couple of different fields but mostly stayed in the field of customer relations. I once went off on my own as a software consultant doing contract work but decided that I didn't want to continue that because I'd constantly have to continue college coursework to stay updated.

In school I kept changing my mind. I'm still trying to figure out what I want to do when I grow up.

For now, I'm a high school mathematics teacher.

In school I studied beer drinking.

I became the Director of a conference center - who drinks beer!

While in HS I aspired to be a Veterinarian . In college I majored in Psychology and Sociology with a minor in English Literature . Later on I studied Theology .

However I spent most of my working life in the Insurance field .
