#LASReviews #bloggingchallenge 8.12.2020

Some of the topics in this blog challenge are so easy for me to write, this one no exception. WHAT I WANTED TO DO WHEN I GREW UP vs WHAT I DO.

When I was a lonely, solitary, and quirky kid growing up in Staten Island, I wanted to do 2 things when I grew up: write stories and be a Nurse.

Luckily, I became both.

As a nursing student, and then a Registered Nurse, I had several articles on Nursing care and topics published in trade magazines and newspapers. Topics ranging from Nurse Preceptor programs, to feeding issues for Alzheimer patients, even the importance of keeping sexually active into our golden years were topics I covered and was thrilled to see in print.

The desire to write more than non-fiction, though, burned through me, so I also wrote short stories, many of which were published in literature magazines.

To be able to combine the two things I’d always loved was simply wonderful.

As a child I never had lofty aspirations. No desire to be a prima ballerina, the first woman President, or fly to Mars. I simply wanted to care for sick people and write stories to entertain them.

And I do.

Let’s see what some of the other bloggers in this challenge have to say: L&SR

    I think it’s awesome you ended up doing exactly what you wanted to do — I don’t think that happens very often!

  4. So happy you followed your dreams, Peg! I wanted to be a ballerina and the first woman astronaut in space. Though neither came to fruition, I love going to the ballet and watching anything to do with space flight. Even star gazing is an absolute joy.
