1. When I was a kid I wanted to be an art teacher when I grew up.
2. As an adult, my dream job would be thrift store/small bakery owner. I also want my own teen youth program.
3. When I was younger I wanted to be just like my mom. Which is such a cliche response but a true one nonetheless. My mom was a 5th grade teacher and being "Mrs. Cobb's" daughter made me a star at her school. I saw her in her element, laughing, joking and shaping the kids in her class. Being a shop owner is important to me because I want my future kids to see me in my element, being abundantly happy, bragging to their friends saying, "That's my mom."
4. The childhood Halloween costume that I remember most was when I dressed up as a bunny rabbit and ballerina when I was 3 and 4. Why? Because my mom made and wore the same costumes.
5. My favorite childhood toy was my Little Tikes dollhouse. Living off of a teacher and assistant chef's salaries didn't leave a lot of expendable income so I didn't have A LOT of Barbies or her expensive accessories growing up. I remember the dollhouse though (a thrift store score for my mom if I remember correctly) and surprisingly, we had every piece of furniture, car, person imaginable. Goodness, I just remember being so amazed, I could literally dream up whatever I wanted.
6. The time I got into the biggest amount of trouble when I was a kid was when I called my teacher the "B" word on the playground. LOL....ooops! I was beating everyone in tetherball and she stopped the games to tell me to go back to the line. At first I wasn't ashamed to tell this story but now, looking back on it, what a crazy little kid I was!!!! I didn't say it to her face if it matters, I muttered it when I walked off angry. Unfortunately, she heard me. I was in the 2nd grade BTW. Bwahahaha...sigh.
7. I get daily inspiration from all the usual stuff, but most of the time I get my inspiration from daydreaming about my future.
