ZebraPrintMe:  I always wanted to be a ballerina or a teacher.  I trained at a professional dance school until I danced on a hairline fracture until it broke off and had to get surgery.  Although…I was never build to be a ballerina so even if i hadn’t broke my ankle I would have never acheived that dream.  I still would love to be a teacher…except I always hated school so i never made it through college…and then hearing about how education is the first to get cut and teachers are always the first to be layed off here in US doesn’t seem very encouraging to me.  So I’m kinda a dud for both of my dreams jobs

A Palaeontologist!

After seeing Jurassic Park, I fell in love!

I ended up being a CCA (Continuing Care Assistant – Senior Care Taker) & I love it. But, I still love paleontology & keep up on news around it. 😛 As dorky as it is.

I wanted to be a vet.  I’m a wildlife biologist now, so I didn’t stray too too far.

A veterinarian…I love it as much as I thought I would, but it is considerably more stressful than I had thought.

I wanted to be an actress on TV. Went to audition for an agent and everything. Did years of musical theater, and I’ve come to the conclusion that I would be a terrible actress. I’m an animator, though, which is performing by extension. 🙂

For a long, long time I wanted to be a vet. Until I volunteered at a clinic and it was way too sad for me.

I wanted to be an artist or an architect, now I’m a nurse! Haha, I love it though. Maybe later I’ll become an architect but I’m also thinking of medicine sometime in the distant future.

I wanted to be a horse. I had big dreams. I’ve done nothing to pursue this.

I wanted to be a mommy and a wife. Even in pre school and kindergarten when we had to talk/write about what we wanted to be, I always said a mommy. Now I’m a wife and a mommy!

A vet! Until i got my first job… It was at a vet’s office and it was really hard. The animals weren’t cute, happy and full of life anymore… They were sick, in pain and dieing… It broke my heart. I still volunteer with a rescue and would love to have a hobby farm one day, it just takes a special person to be a vet and that wasnt for me.

Im in medical school now… So not too far off.

When I was a kid I wanted to be a doctor, then I became a teenager and wanted to be a laywer.  After leaving high school I went to university and actually became a high school teacher, however now I’m back at university as a medical student.  So I have ended up chasing my childhood dream, I’ve just taken the scenic route in order to get here!
