Question Time

     Every weekend I will have a blog post where I ask and answer questions.  It is a good way for readers to get to know more about me and also help me to get feedback on a number of questions. Today I answer Question 4 asked by Jamie from Love Bakes Good Cakes who passed on the Liebster award to me. When you were young, what did you want to be when you grew up?   I was always interested in working with media and ended up being a Freelance Journalist and writer.
   I am also happy for the first time to be participating in Friendship Friday hosted by Create With Joy.

What did I want to be when I grew up--I don't think I honestly thought about it until college was on the horizon--then I wanted to be a journalist--however I ended up with a 2 year accounting degree and a 4 year environmental science degree!!

Thanks for your comments MikiHope. Very interesting. Have a wonderful weekend.

I was the oldest child and we lived on a dairy farm. I worked very hard and was very independent. I didn't want to be a nurse or secretary because I didn't want to do the same jobs women did. I wanted to go into the military, but then I'd have been filing and doing secretarial work. I was a waitress and then a bartender. At the age of 27 I started the career I was meant to do. A cop. I spent 25 years doing that and achieved the rank of lieutenant. Not bad for a country girl.

Great question!

Have a fantastic day Judy. ☺

Very interesting answer Sandee. I have learnt a lot about you! You did well for sure. Not bad for a country girl. I am also a country girl!:) Take care and enjoy the rest of your day.

When I was in grade 8 , my teacher asked me that what I want to be? I said nothing , I will be a house wife. She got angry on me but I did answer to her honestly with my plans!

I wanted to be a stay at home mom and was going to write to bring the money in.
Glad you got to be what you wanted to be.

What did I went to be when I was young. Three things. I wanted to be a writer when I was younger. In particular I liked to write and draw. I used to wander around the park and make up stories in my head to entertain myself. I also wanted to be a DJ. I begged my mom and dad for a tape recorder. At ten years old they finally caved, and I got a little hand held recorder. I recorded my own radio shows. They probably weren't very good, but I got pretty awesome at foley work. I now work at a radio station as a part time receptionist and midday host. Have a great weekend Judy! :)

Claire Justine said...

I always wanted to have lots of children as I was a lonely only child. Think i did well with 4 haha :)

Judy Haughton-James said...

So you were an only child Clairejustine. You have 4 lovely children. Have a great weekend.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks for your feedback Kelly! Very interesting. Have a great weekend.

alissa apel said...

Even blogging relates to what you wanted to do.

I wanted to be an artist and a private investigator. An odd mix, but kids are odd. :) My 4 year old son said he wanted to be the one to have babies when he gets older. I became a college graphic arts teacher. To this day I have to get down to the bottom of things. That's probably that private investigator coming through.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks for your feedback Alissa! Very interesting. Have yourself a wonderful Sunday.

When I was young, I loved to draw and be crafty, but in school, I loved math and science. I went to college and got a degree in Mechanical Engineering and did that for a few years. Starting faux finishing and doing murals for family and friends. Been painting everything for 18 years now. Still don't know what I want to be when I grow up! ;)
Found you through the Sunday Social.

LuAnn Braley said...

From as early as I can remember, I always wanted to be an actress. I tended more towards stage performance, not movies. I did quite a bit of community theatre (even some paid) in the 5-6 years before I started having kids. Hope to get back to it someday...soon. :O)

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks for your feedback LuAnn. It is wonderful that you were able to do some community theatre and I hope you get to continue some day. Take care and have a wonderful week.

Theresa said...

My grandma drove the special needs bus and would often take me along. I always had such a great time with those kids, I really wanted to be a special education teacher. I ended up having children a bit young, so that didn't pan out, but still think about doing it from time to time.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks for your interesting feedback Theresa. Enjoy the rest of your day.
