What was/is your childhood ambition?  
When I was a kid I wrote everything down in my journal. I was sure that one day I was going to publish this tell all tale about the life of a vampire slayer, from her little sister’s point of view. Even at thirteen I was sure that the world wanted to hear what I had to say, I was sure that I needed to tell them these things. And I might have even copied some of Buffy’s journal down in mine, you know for later analysis and everything. But I was thirteen and all of my journals were destroyed with Sunnydale so Buffy couldn’t possibly get mad now, right? Whatever I’m an adult and I’m not afraid of Buffy.

I always wanted to write, I don’t know how good I was at it but I just knew I could write something great and people would love it. It would move them and change them and I’d be doing something for the good of the world, I’d do my part to make it a better place, instead of just being the little sister of the person who made the difference.

Now I guess people still consider me a child, especially people who’ve known me since I was in my little world of let’s write everything down but I have no idea what I want to do with my life now. I went through this small period of wanting to be a watcher but now I’m not so sure. Studying Latin at Harvard is like one step away from being the biggest nerd since Giles or Wesley.

I love to dance. Maybe that’s what I should do, drop my Latin classes and take ballet or modern dance or something else like that.

I don’t have anything figured out really. I just want to be Dawn for a while and see where that takes me.
