    I would love to be
    1) a millionaire something...who also has an office or vacation home in Australia
    2) a woman with the body I had at age 19-20
    3) a mystery shopper for sweaters, purses, shoes, restaurants, or even groceries (no home items or Lowes/Home Depot type items)
    4) a philanthropist to implement some of my "dream" programs for kids, pregnant teens, and stray cats (being a millionaire or billionaire would help w/ this too!)

    I am a graduate nurse, but I dream of...

    1. Being the lead singer of a cool rock band...(love my karoake nights!)

    2. Being a research specialist at the CDC that embarks on the cure for cancer...followed up by an institution being named for me after all of my contributions...(educational and financial!)

    3. Being a great RN...(I have always dreamed of being a nurse, ever since I was a little girl. My aunt recently gave me a very old pic of me dressed in a nurse costume when I was around 5-6yrs old, I wish I could post it here...it looks so cool next to my graduation pic)
