When I was younger, my favorite day of the school year was always Career Day.  Because I was able to discover five or six more careers, my occupational aspirations shifted on an annual basis. At first, I wanted to be a doctor because Gifted Hands and the doctor who presented it were inspiring. I thought […]

“What are you going to be when you grow up?” my mom questioned five-year-old me. “I don’t know. Maybe a princess?” I answered innocently. “I think you should be a doctor.

I had just returned home from school, I walked in ever so nonchalantly as I always did and tossed my things onto the floor. I was exhausted. I had just finished taking two final exams, and a quiz for one of my core classes and I was looking forward to a nice quiet evening at […]
