annamill BS: What you *were* going to do in life?.... (128* d) RE: BS: What you *were* going to do in life?.... 27 May 05

I was suppose to be Donna Reed. Didn't work out. I wanted to be a painter. Spent hours in my bedroom "painting" with water colors.

I wanted to study bugs. Scared the hell out of my mother when I brought a large jar of bugs into my bedroom to study....and dropped them all on the floor, jumped up on the bed and screamed, jumping up and down on the bed.

Didn't want to do anything for years. Just hang out enjoying life. Didn't work out. I couldn't understand the concept of working for years so I could retire and do nothing except just hang out and enjoy life.

I had 2 kids. Had to go to work. I became a computer programmer with a two year degree. Worked for 27 years and eventually became a "consultant" (makes loads of bucks) Didn't work out.

Tried a mess of other stuff, security guard, trolley driver, ebay seller, telemarketer(really didn't work out), waitress. Nothing has worked out.

So, here I am, 60 yrs old, with no idea what I want to do. Mostly, I just want to hang out and enjoy life. Nobody pays you to do that. You know, my father always told me to marry a rich man. I did once. Didn't work out.

I have a wonderful husband who has a pretty good job. He's happy just hanging out too. We used to laugh about coming out to Cali and living in a box on the beach. A small one for Maxie (our Maltese) of course. It may just happen.


Boy, life is weird!

Love, Annamill
