When I was a kid I wanted to be an archaeologist. And then I tried it when I was 15 and realized  A) I hate dirt, and B) I don’t have enough patience for it. Now, when I grow up I’d like to be Martha Stewart ๐Ÿ™‚ Well, minus the cleaning thing, I don’t have the knack for that, LOL!

Hmmm…. An astronaut, I grew up near NASA, but then discovered I could never space walk because I’m too tall. A vet, a marine biologist (Flipper and Free Willy anyone?), a science teacher, an archaeologist, an anthropologist, psycoloigist, doctor, and now I’m in nursing school! I like science can you tell?

I wanted to be a JAG in the USMC. I’ve adjusted that goal to practicing law with a specialization in EDD and ESI as a civilian when I grow up. ๐Ÿ™‚

I remember when I was a kid we did an assignment in school where we drew out what we wanted to be when we grew up. I wanted to be a teacher, doctor, or cashier, haha.

I’ve worked as a cashier for a summer job and now I’m a professor in laboratory medicine, so I’ve kind of stayed true to my childhood dream, lol!

My dreams were totally whacked out when I was little. I desperatley wanted to be an airline stewardess since I thought it was like the coolest job ever being able to travel all over. Now that I’m older, that doesn’t nearly appeal to me (traveling does but not waiting on grumpy passengers). My current dream is to become an event planner. After our wedding I’m going to enroll in some online classes and get the ball rolling!

When I was a lot younger I thought I wanted to be a marine biologist. Then I realized that I’m kinda claustrophobic and I don’t like science that much. 

Then I wanted to be a lawyer. Which now I am. And it sucks. 


I think when I grow up I want to be Pioneer Woman lol. I want to spend all day cooking, taking pictures, giving stuff away, and blogging. Sounds good to me. ๐Ÿ™‚

I wanted to be an astronaut and a paleontologist.  I became a lawyer.  Now I just want to be independently wealthy, idle rich.

I wanted to be a Marine Biologist. And I became one! I have 2 degrees in Marine Biology. Now i’m using my environmental knowledge to develop antibiotics.

Now I think I want to be a photographer, though! haha

Oh lord, let’s see what did I want to be when I was a kid…

Marine Biologist

The actress/singer dreams sort of came true; I do a fair amount of musicals, but if I actually did it for a living I think I’d start to hate it. But I went to grad school for forensic speech science, so now I want to sit in a room with earphones on analyzing people’s voices all day, lol.

When I was a kid I wanted to be a Veterinarian.

Now I think I’d love to be an Architect.

That’s not gonna happen so I’ll be happy to fall into either the Graphic Design field or the Librarian field–anything associated really.

I wanted to be ballerina, but when I was 12 I injured my ankle.  Then I dived into piano which I played since I was 7.  And got waitlisted at one of the hardest schools to get into (and when you get in, you stay, so the waitlist was pointless).  Now I work in Radio Advertising.  Quite the difference.

@bakerella: I’m in an anthropology program and I still hate arch. I blame the main archeology professor here- she’s under qualified, perverse, and crazy to boot.

Middle school through now has been a bit of a range:

large animal vet (I hate cows and needles)
lawyer (law school? blech.)
horse trainer (I don’t want to deal with crazy clients after dealing with them as a rider)
archeologist specializing in the Levant (comment to bakerella)
something in museums-> museum registrar/collections management

I would love to work in collections management in a museum that at least has some military history but in all likelihood I’ll end up as a catchall at a smaller history museum since most places can’t afford to higher a dedicated collections department.
