thursday thirteen

Thirteen things I want to do when I grow up.

1. Be a florist
2. Be a Funeral Director or Mortician.  Really.  I liked this idea even before I read Angela Hunt's Doesn't She Look Natural.
3. Be a college professor
4. Be a(n) historian
5. Be an archeologist
6. Be a horse rancher
7. Be a photographer
8. Be some kind of scientist - biology or chemistry.  Or astronomy.
9. Be an interior designer
10. Be an event planner
11. Own a book store
12. Own a restaurant that uses natural and local foods.  Fresh, made from scratch.
13. Be a novelist.


  1. OOh a funeral director! That's an interesting one! I don't think I could do that one.I'm still trying to figure out what I wanna be when I grow up too. I see a lot of my aspirations on that list! Good luck!

  2. I want to be a farmer/rancher...but in a city sort of way..I do not want to have to do it to make money..just for fun! :)

  3. Interesting list. I once wanted to be a historian - I have a degree in history and love doing research, but I couldn't stay focused on just one area long enough to become an "expert" at it.

    Happy TT!

  4. 5, 10, & 11 I would join you on. I would like to do those things also.
    Love your TT, hope you'll visit my 32nd TT...Housework, Quoth the Mama, Nevermore at The Cafe.

  5. I'm with you on the interior decorator. In my next career...

  6. I would love to have a sense of style to become an interior decorator but not sure I would opt to be a funeral director.

  7. you definitely want to be a lot of things. good thing we're all living a lot longer lol

  8. Nice list! I'm still trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up. I do know what I *don't* want to be... Happy TT!

  9. Are those in order of preference?

  10. good list kay. What about independantly wealthy? thats on my list( in my mind list) :)

  11. Oh, fun. How many lifetimes did you say we get?

  12. Remember the B&B we talked about and the diner that served all cheese dishes? We would have called it "The Big Cheese" and have a picture of dad with an old time look and handle bar stash on his lip. remember? remember? remember when? lol

  13. My best friend in college was a funeral director. She thought it was harder to deal with the living folks than the dead ones. :)

    And wait... you plan on growing up?!

    Speaking of not growing up, I often come to your site just to hear the rainbow connection, that's how much I plan on not growing up!

  14. This was a fun idea. I may have to do it next week. My parents always wanted to own a Christia bookstore. And I'd love to have one too. It must be a family thing.

  15. Some of those things appeal to me. I really don't think I'd be a very good interior designer! My idea of a flower arrangement for a banquet is a bunch of sunflowers in a vase.

  16. Neat list - at least four of them were on my list and funeral director was one that I was told would be a great fit for me when I took some aptitude test in high school. I was mortified, but it would be an appropriate line of work for someone with a masters in counseling...

    I would love to own a Christian bookstore or a Christian gym. How cool would it be to encourage people to lead healthy lives in a Christ centered gym.


I love to hear your thoughts!
