    So you think you missed your calling - what would that be?  What would you most like to be if you could start out all over again?


    I think I would have been a wonderful singer - a club singer with a sultry voice and figure to match.  Of course I can't sing, but I would if I could start all over and do it!

    your turn . . .

      i would certainly take a lot more risks, and not be so scared to fail or fall on my face a few times.  that's one of things that used to hold me back all the time.  in fact it still  does.  thats why if i could do everything over again with what i know now, i would take a lot more chances.

      A person can have many careers in one lifetime, its never too late to start a new one , I have always had a JOB and I consider that to mean just over broke, If I had it to do over again I would have more careers and less J.O.Bs. but as for now Taxes is my career and I absolutly love it smile

        that's very interesting - you do people's taxes for them?  and you love it?  that makes you a very special person!  I have already started over as a live-in caregiver and I love it, but you know, there's always something it seems I would rather be doing~!

          Being a care giver makes you a lot more special of a person than being a tax preparer thats for sure.

    If I were to turn back time, I would return to my teaching job in the elementary school. "Once a teacher, always a teacher"- you see? I miss my school children and fellow teachers. We used to have great times even in bad times.

    Your turn.
