Margo the Builder
When I was a child, I wanted to be an architect - My father was a builder and I wanted to work with him. I was forever drawing pictures of houses and arranging rooms and planning gardens. I actually designed a house that won a prize in middle school. My math skills are awful, so I thought I would never cut it as an architect. I decided that I would be a lawyer or a history professor instead. Well, let it be known that I pursued NONE of those vocations and wound up in IT and the software industry instead (and it's been very good to me). I still love to pour over houseplans, modifying ones that I see or drawing out houses that I imagine. I spend a fortune on architecture, decorating and design magazines. It is still my dream, to one day design and build my own house.
