I wanted to be a lawyer or an architect. I actually went to school for three years for architecture. I decided it wasn’t for me!

Now I work for a touring company in Napa doing sales, and I LOVE it!

I plan on going back to school soon, probably for a business degree.

I didnt have a wild dream per se….at 12, i wanted to design houses ….my bio-father used to design them on napkins…he never did anything with it though….it facinated me and i kept with that dream from age 12 til now….i’m 25 and i’m about 1/4 way through college for my BA in Architecture….have 6 yrs experience working at an architectural firm….and i’ve lost the passion to be an architect….i still love to design homes though….might do it on the side…..

having one dream for so long….its a scary thing not knowing what i really want to do now…..

I wanted to be an equine vet. I LOVED James Herriot’s All Creatures Great and Small. I decided not to do that when I realized I could not handle “losing” any of my patients. I am too soft hearted I guess.

Now I’m a business analyst/project manager for a financial firm… but I still horseback ride on weekends.

A physical therapist. I had no idea what they actually did, but I learned they could make a lot of money so I decided that was right up my alley.

That dream fizzled when I learned what they do and how much schooling was involved.

A STAM that didnt have to work!  Yes, I really said that to my mom, and she said.. nonono, you can’t do that, you have to go to school and have a career and not depend on a man for everything.

@.twist.: LOL. I totally wanted to be a mermaid too at 12. For jobs, I actually wanted to be a marine biologist, but then I realized I actually needed to live by water for that…

I wanted to be an actress or a lawyer… now I am going to be a cop. I hate sitting in an office doing nothing but paperwork so practicing law was out of the question! And I still love to act, but I also love stable money a lot too!

@bellagio: heh! Once I realized that a mermaid was far stretch for career options I figured I’d be a lawyer.

I ended up working in Oil & Gas, and going to university to get a Psychology Degree. SOoooooo funny where life takes us and how we change over the years.

Haha, I grew up around a bunch of boys in our neighborhood, so I was convinced I was going to play in the WNBA.  LOL.  I wore windsuit pants and sports jerseys every day.

Now I am a total girly-girl, and the only sport I did in school was cheerleading, and one day of soccer.  Athlete, I am not.  I’m now a wedding director for a florist, and I just opened my own event planning company after several years of working as an event director for a hotel.

Not to mention I never grew past 5’0, LOL.
