Around 1999, I had very clear cut definitions about what was possible in my life. Career was a "serious" topic. I was a PhD student on track to become a professor of Anthropology. I had very strict ideas about what was "legitimate" as a career path and what was not. I never even questioned these ideas, having been brought up by two overachievers with multiple advanced degrees and jobs with massive world development organizations. Though I didn't know it, I was still walking through the world based on on the vision set my my parents.
