  我们从小可能会对自己的career path有所设想,不过现实往往跟我们的计划不太一样,比如从小立志当科学家的小朋友,长大后可能去卖了假药,而发下毒誓绝对不当老师的孩子,可能正奋斗在教学一线……

  所以,在对自己的未来做规划的时候,难免会有改变主意的情况。如果被问到an occasion when you changed your plan,不妨编一个“童年梦想vs.长大后梦想”的故事,说不定还能跟interesting job这个话题联系上!

  This topic reminds me of the time I changed my mind about what I want to do in the future. Here’s what happened.

  I’d always wanted to be a teacher when I was little, ‘cause I used to think teachers know everything and it’s the coolest job in the whole wide world. And teachers are highly respected by others.

  However, I had a change of mind when I was in high school. At that time, my grandpa was diagnosed with terminal cancer. And he went to all of the hospitals in my hometown, but things didn’t get any better. We were told that there was only 3 months left for him. So in the end, we went to Beijing, and made an appointment with a famed doctor. He treated my grandpa with the most advanced medical technique and drugs that just came on the market. And miraculously, my grandpa lived 5 more years because of this doctor and his excellent team. I am so grateful to the doctor for everything he did for my family.

  So from that moment on, I decided that I would be a doctor in the future. It’s a rewarding and fulfilling job. Doctors give people hope, and they comfort patients and their family when they are so desperate.
