This was written on October 4, 1966. Three years later I will write another paper about my future.
What I’ll be Someday
I want to be a nurse and I want to be a teacher too because I like school. If I were to babysit for my brother I might like it and on the other hand, I might not like it.
I can name a few of the things I want to be, like a nurse, teacher, nursery teacher, Sunday school teacher or an animal hospital nurse because I love animals.
I hope I get married and have a dog, cat and a few hamsters.
The teacher writes “what about children??” after the last sentence.
It seems like this was from a prompt. I wrote it in 1969 so that would have made me going on 13 years old. I was either in 5th or 6th grade.

What Do I Want to Be?
What do I want to be? Well, I’ll tell you. I want to be a Kindergarten teacher. I want to be a book writer also. I want to write because I like to read and the writers now don’t write enough books to keep me busy reading so I if am a book writer I can have a side job as a Kindergarten teacher or vice versa.
I want to be a kindergarten teacher because I adore small children. I would not like to be any other grade teacher except maybe first grade.
So there, I told you my secret. I’ll probably change my mind because I have in the past, many times. For instance, I used to want to be a surgical nurse. But don’t you think that’s too gory?
