All throughout childhood and college I wanted to be a zookeeper.
When I was finally offered the internship though, it took me less than a week to realize I couldn’t stomach it.
It’s a lot less “playing with and training cute animals” and a lot more “cleaning up the vilest messes and being bombarded with the absolute worst smells on planet earth” than I imagined.
Yes, I did. I thought it was my dream job but it lacked fulfillment, creativity and a sense of purpose.
I took up ferret breeding as a profitable side-business but it sort of took over my life. I have 120 ferrets at my house at the current moment (between the furnished basement and the living/dining room) and now no one wants to come over and my friends don’t want to hang out with me 🙁
Yes, I worked as a cashier at Target and was supposed to get two 15-minute paid breaks per shift, but it turned out that nobody would actually give you the breaks you were owed.
Many times job interviews or job descriptions are more optimistic than they really are. You go in with the description you were told, only to find out that nothing is as they say it is.
Sort of – I’d wanted to be a fighter pilot since I was like 3. I didn’t make the cut when I was in pilot training for fighters, wound up flying something else, still had a great career. But by the end of my 20s I realized I’d have to change up my career path if I wanted a chance to have a family, because being a military pilot alone wasn’t enough to make me feel fulfilled.
