a kindergarten teacher or a linguist???

Being a linguist was one of my huge desires, in fact I studied Mandarin and Spanish in high school and college. However, almost everything I’ve learned became a junk since I chose not to pursue this desire because of some unavoidable circumstances and in due course was gone by the wind.
Until I met a friend who’s a Portuguese and speaks Mandarin, Japanese, English (with a British accent) and a bit of Spanish aside from her native tongue and my 5-year old student a Russian-American who lives in Japan and speaks English and is now learning Russian and Japanese. Wow! I am always fascinated hearing them speak different languages and it extremely awakens my long lost desire to be a linguist.
( 3-4 foreign languages are fine with me lol)

Hmmmm, it seems that I have an undeniably crucial choice to make; to continue being a Kindergarten Teacher or to switch another career “again” as Linguist?
But at least I'm already happy that I can say Thank you in few languages hehe
Merci
