Inspired by Katie’s list of occupations she’s daydreamed about working, I’ve compiled this list of jobs that I wanted to do when I grew up, in chronological order from when I was a little kid to today. A few might be embarrassing, a couple are pretty LEGEND still.

printer/designer for a small-small press company
I have worked as a graphic designer for a newspaper and then for a printing company basically since I was a senior in high school. I’ve had short stints working weekend jobs as a nursery supervisor and a hotel audit clerk, and a short hiatus from design as middle school study hall aide… but, I think it’s cool how many jobs I’ve dreamed of that had to do with printing and designing of some sorts. Printing and designing are very close to my heart.
