chelseamonday asks too many intersting question.
When I was little, I wanted to be an archeologist. I loved dinosaurs, and that's what I wanted to dig up. Now I know that paleontologists dig up dinosaurs, and archeologists dig up people. Still, I think that both are cool professions. I was a little dinosaur nut.
In high school, I thought I would be doing engineering. I believed those personality/career tests that told me I should be an electrical engineer or a priest.
I got into VT for engineering. I then did a crazy flip into English Lit and Comparative Religion. Go figure. I also studied lots of ancient history.
I was a computer tech for a while. Then I was a tech writer. Then I was a computer tech again. I'm still doing that computer tech thing. I'm thinking about psychology. Damned career tests They were right,
Interestinly, I got interested in dinosaurs again in my 20's. This time, I was also fascinated by HOW and WHEN they were dug up, and by who. The books on excavation of the great fossils are fascinating. Those bone hunters are wacky and inventive people.
