I wasn’t very good in school. Or so my grades say. To be honest I hated school. All I was interested in was the high school band, reading, and my Literature classes. I hated biology, math, and P.E. In fact, I flunked out of P.E. in 10th grade. I hated wearing those blue one-piece snap-up bloomers, with the white socks, and white pointy gym shoes. So I never dressed out, which led to points off my grade…
It’s all very dumb looking back.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
In 8th grade, I told everyone I wanted to be a marine biologist. Not sure why I did that. I was not interested in anything science. I don’t remember anyone asking me what I wanted to be when I was a small child. You know back when it was cute to hear a five-year-old say, “I want to be a cat wrangler.”
Today everywhere you look they want us mid-lifers to find and have a purpose.
