I definitely almost forgot. Happy IWSG Day!

I turn 30 in 17 days! That said, I had many goals and milestones throughout my life so far, so I thought I'd lay them out today so we can all look at them and laugh. lol
At age 5: I decided I wanted to have kids. O.o
At age 7: I wanted to be a firefighter, not in the future, but while I was 7. Go to school in the morning and fight fires by night. (So apparently, I wanted to be a superhero).
Also at age 7: I asked my Mom if I could go to Disney World, and she said "Some day."
At age 8: I wrote my first X-men based picture book. I also decided I wanted to be a writer and illustrator.
At age 9: I wrote my first song. It was about playing out in the field, and it was called "Out in the Field".
At 11: I decided I wanted to write horror. I'd seen Stephen King's It 11 times and was inspired.
At age 13: I had my first life-crisis because I was now a teenager. I also wrote my first contemporary fiction based off of The Outsiders.
At age 14: I started writing Backstreet Boys fan-fiction, some of which I adapted into my first short stories.
At age 17: I sang with my sister at a Talent Show, got rave reception, and decided I wanted to try to be a pop singer.
At age 18: I decided I didn't want to go to college and wanted to pursue singing. I also had the dream that became the then-opening scene to my fantasy WIP.
At age 19: I went to the University of the Arts' Summer Program for illustration, preparing to go to college.
At age 20: I submitted the first pages of my fantasy story to UArts' Writing for Film & TV program and went to college.
At age 24: I graduated from college! lol
As you can see, I didn't become a pop star lol, but I think I am finally ready to query that story. I can't wait to see what the next 30 years will have in store, but for now, I'll keep counting down the next 17 days. :) Also, still haven't been to Disney World. >:(
