My answer to the question, ‘What do you want to be when you grow up?’

So Mary what do you want to be when you grow up?”

I have been asked this all my life! I use to answer; “A vet.”

But now I answer; “I don’t now. Maybe a technician, or an engineer, or a scientist!”

I learned more about myself. My Holland Code, my values, and what careers go with them! So I still don’t know the answer to that question, but I will soon…I hope. 

(P.S I never understood the purpose of asking that question, could some one explain it to me? Please.)
