As a kid I remember wanting to be an Astronaut when I grew up.

 

Now I'm older that's a bit of reach for me now.

 

What did you want to grow up to be as a kid?

 

If you're still a kid, same question.

An incorporeal being that would ride free on the wind.

I wanted to be a mechanic for some reason, the kind who work on cars. I think I just fell in love with those movie mechanics who'd drive out to the old country roads and fix up cars and then you'd buy them a coffee at the local town's diner.

 

A little bit later it was mechanical/aerospace engineering, which is cooler and probably a better job. Then I looked at higher math classes and lost my appetite for engineering.

 

Now I want to get a tradejob in electrical wiring or maybe HVACR repair. They look like relatively low-stress jobs that I'd be comfortable doing, and they pay well enough for me, and the education is all too available. It's come full circle almost. :colgate:

But honestly, hopefully being an employee at Rockstar.

Since I was a little kid I always dreamt big. I always wanted to be an international drug dealer and weapons trader.

I wanted to be an architect, but my naive dreams were crushed when I realised it was a bit more complex than just building houses on The Sims and your mum saying that they looked nice. Then I wanted to be a solicitor/lawyer, but after a year of doing it at (UK) college I realised I was f*cking horrible at it and I'd only end up getting my defendant who just wanted a parking ticket over turned, sentenced to death or life imprisonment.

Marine biologist. I'm sort of doing that in college now, which is the cool thing. But it's not like swimming with whales and dolphins..It's more like studying snail shells for hours. :/

 

stu, I also wanted to be an architect for awhile (got my idea from the Sims as well :p). That or a motocross racer.

I'm 3 years into a degree within the field of law and I still feel that way.

 

But I'm in too deep now.

 

I'm sure everyone feels that way though at the start, right......right?

First, an astronaut, almost any child's dream.

 

Then a fireman. No idea why, but I just thought the trucks looked cool. Not only that, but I thought I would be able to spew water from a hose at my own expense.

I wanted to design cars and did draw a lot of cars when I was younger, some actually good looking. Well I then wanted to be an architect but that got boring. Now I am interested in engineering and automobiles again.

As a kid I always wanted to be a doctor then I realized I would never be able to afford med school, then thought more and more about going to the police academy, when I graduated in 2008 I was supposed to take the state trooper exam but then I was diagnosed with cancer so that f*cked everything up

A computer programmer; I have social anxiety, I'm good with computers, I can live wherever I want, and I think the pay's well. I haven't really looked into it, so I'm not sure about some of those things. I originally wanted to play for the Pittsburgh Pirates back when I liked baseball and later I wanted to be an urban planner, but nahh

When I was a kid I wanted to become a bus driver. It looked cool to be the driver for everyone in the bus. It looked as if the bus driver was the leader.

 

Then I wanted to become a paleontologist. My brother's dinosaur books and watching Jurassic Park III got me hooked up.

 

I started to gain interest in wood frame construction after I entered college. I enjoy designing wood frame houses, particularly suburban ones.

I'm still hooked up on prehistoric life.
