Day 17-What you want to become when you’re older

Well, nothing like a cold splash of reality about my future. Or as I call it, just normal weekly things that I’m reminded of…

Anyways, I do have two ideas of what I want to become in the future.

The first, and my top choice, is to become a diplomat, or Foreign Service Officer (FSO). I want to become a diplomat because I believe that the way to help and do good in this rather politically complex world is to experience it first hand, and interact with it on a smaller level first, before trying to change anything on a bigger scale. Not to mention, I love learning languages, travelling, and talking to all sorts of people across the world, so I think I’ll make a good diplomat. (Fingers crossed)

Second, if I don’t become an FSO, I’d love to teach. And as weird as that may seem contrasted to a cool life of a diplomat, in teaching future generations, I hope I can teach them how to be better citizens. Having also been a TA at one point, I’d definitely like to consider the possibility of becoming an elementary school teacher. However, that is still my plan B to being a diplomat.

What do you want to become/are becoming? Let me know in the comments!


P.S. Happy St. Patrick’s Day! ☘


I'm a recent graduate currently living in Calgary, Alberta. You can usually find me with a cup of coffee in one hand while reading a pile of books or planning my next big project. I'm curious about many things - including history, photography, and travelling. You can find me writing away at
