@lanipapillon:  I wanted to go to Harvard and become a doctor, specifically a neurologist because that’s what my Dad is!

@Pearberry:  Oh my, that sounds exactly like the sort of thing I would have daydreamed about. I think most of my Hanson daydreams centered around me being plucked from the crowd to join them onstage. I would impress them so much by playing some musical instrument that Zac would ask me to go on tour with them, promptly followed by dating and marriage. *embarrassed face*

An artist, a singer or an archaeologist.

I am a graphic designer and part time classical singer. I still am interested in archeology, but I never made it a career path.

When asked on the first day of school my exact words were “a taxi driver or a cooker in a pizza shop”

An engineer – and that’s what I am!  My secret fantasy career is singer/dancer/performer of some kind.  I “practice” at home – my husband is a patient man haha

I wanted to be an elementary school teacher and a mother. Clearly I enjoyed kids…but my mother wanted me to have a “career” in a big corporate office and all that jazz (she was SAHM). So instead of going into anything that was child related I am an accountant. At one point I thought about going back to school to get my teaching credentials, but with the state of the economy in my state a teaching job is hard to come by ๐Ÿ™

A vet, that was the one and only thing I ever wanted from the time I was about 5 years old.

I did not succeed.

Well, first it was a singer/model LOL but when I got a little older, I wanted to be a choir teacher.

Spoiler alert: I am not a choir teacher lol

Every year on our birthdays my mum would ask my sisters and I what we wanted to be and kept the list she gave them to us on our 21st birthdays.  My sisters changed theirs every single year, whereas from the age of 3 mine were eithor a teacher or a mother the whole time!

I am in my 5th year as a teacher and hope to become a mother soon! ๐Ÿ™‚ (very nearly at the TTC stage)

I wanted to be a ballerina – BUT the catch is…I wanted to first be discovered on Star Search. Yeah…I feel old. My best friend and I would “play” Star Search and always won and went on to be famous ballerinas.

I’m an accountant. :p

I thought I wanted to be a neurosurgeon.  Acually, it was probably more what my parents wanted than I wanted.  My dad planted the idea in my head when I was in elementary school.

When I first enrolled in college, I thought I wanted to be a CPA.  But accounting bores me to death, and I didn’t really know what I wanted to do, so I dropped out.

At age 27, I decided I wanted to be a veterinarian.  I’m finishing up my bachelor’s degree in general business and will take the pre-reqs for vet school.  So I do want to be a doctor, just not the kind my parents wanted.
