I wanted to be a storm chaser! And now I’m in school with a major in Astronomy and minor in Meteorology. So…I’m kind of on the same path?
A paleontologist. I loved dinosaurs so much. I don’t remember when/how that dream died, but I am not one. It’s kind of sad…I hadn’t though about this in a long, long time.
I wanted to be an opera singer so I sang all through school and got my BA in vocal performance. When I moved into the city and needed to make money to live, I started working in arts admin and that’s where I am now. I also wanted to be a lawyer because both of my parents, my older brother and some family friends are lawyers who all went to the same law school, but I dunno if it’s for me or not. A few months ago I thought about going to school to teach high school English. Got admitted to grad school but changed my mind in favor of buying a house. Now I want to try and be a writer. Or own a bookstore. Definitely be a Stay-At-Home Mom for a while. We’ll see! I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up but it’s nice to have options!
This is funny, so when I was young (6-8?) i thought that people at the grocery stores lived there, (same that teachers lived at the school) so i wanted to be a grocery story bagger thinking that i could live there and eat anything i wanted to…(i loved food lol- still do but now in moderation lol) My mom had hopes i would grow out of that and go to college 🙂 i did and now I am in Marketing. but there was also the dream of a singing star (Whitney Houston minus the drugs lol) and I sang for years but went to school for business not voice oh well there is always American Idol lol
I wanted to be a veterinarian.
That was until I shadowed one and actually saw a cow’s uterus outside of it’s body and the vet trying to “fix it”. That’s one mental image that has been BURNED into my brain for all eternity. I also saw bulls being de-horned. Pretty bloody.
AND of course I realized I would have to touch creepy animals too.
So much for that dream.
I wanted to own a clothing store. I guess really I could still do that except I’m lazy! Now I am a budget analyst for the Army. Not even close!
veternarian because i love animals. But, after working at a dog daycare and than a groomers i decided i love animals but, i want to work somewhere cleaner and more proffessional so i got a job in an office building.
Whenever I watch “Criminal Minds” I’m like look that could of have been me! And I totally would have hooked up with Spencer Reed.
Its amazing to see how many actually followed through with their dreams later on, even if they didn’t quite complete them. I totally wanted to be a Chef or a Teacher, but now I’m at school for HR. I would love to switch to Public Relations though.
A baseball player (first female in the major leagues!! It didn’t matter that I was pretty terrible) or a vet. Then, I wanted to be Robert Plant. Now I’m an editor….but I do play music on the side sometimes…
