What Did You Wanna Be?

Younger me didn't want a boring ol' job. Younger me wanted to be a princess. But that's not the easiest field to get into these days, so I've settled for medicine.

Because that's way easier, obviously :P

 

When I was little (like 5-6 yo) I wanted to be a painter. My parents had friends (a couple with kids our age) that were both artists, and I guess I was just fascinated. I loved drawing too.

Then it got into my head that it was impractical, and because I loved animals so much, I should be a vet.

 

Seeing animals suffering makes me way too sad, though, and they can't tell you what the problem is... So I decided to go the easier way, and settled on medicine too. :P

(Na, in all honestly, I was fascinated by the human body, how it works and why it works the way it does. I'm also an idealist that still thinks helping people must be rewarding.)

My first ever dream job was a tomb raider/some kind of adventurer. I was a big Lara Croft movie fan as a kid. Soon after that I wanted to be a vet, at least until I realized that I'd have to put animals to sleep as a vet. That dream ended pretty quickly after that.

 

For most of my life I publicly wanted to be a surgeon (parents' expectations and all that) yet secretly held onto a dream of becoming a game graphic artist. When I started my currently ongoing studies in game development, I got to try exactly that for about a half a year. I grew tired of it very quickly and actually fell in love with game programming instead. So yeah, that's where I've ended up in the end.

I wanted to be an artist! I'm a cosmetologist now, though. So in a way I'm still doing art, through hair/makeup/nails and whatnot. ;) This is an interesting thread!

I had dreamed to be a professional artist when I was teen. But this never be come true XD

After I gave up this, I still cannot find my dream job.

 

I learn library and information science in an university. But now, I don't really want to be a librarian. And sadly, it's too late to change my major.

(I think it was wrong decision to myself.)

Farmer, and after that, olympic speed skater. It's really kinda sad that none of the dreams in this thread came true, huh?

I think we wanted to be a video game designer since our special interest was Pokemon, or something in art. As we grew older then we wanted to do something in animation.

 

Now we're getting a degree for video game design, but anything that combines art and technology we'd be happy with really. We're looking at something in animation or video games but are also kind of interested in comic books.

Actress, singer, and writer, all of which are slowly but definitely happening.

I wanted to be a vet, a zookeeper, a singer, an authour, and an astronaut. I became an entomologist. :)

I guess I wanted to sell tickets at the Linnanmäki amusement park here in Helsinki. I'm studying at the university now so I hope I find something a bit more decent to do for the rest of my life...

A lot of things. Translator, gardener, veterinarian... I wanted to work at a zoo and I wanted to study bees and I wanted to be a psychologist and at one point I dreamed of becoming a writer. Nowadays I dream of impossible things that'll never come true just like all of my childhood dreams.

Archeologist was my first plan which lasted for nearly 6 years in my youth, until people told me that I wouldn't be able to work with it since everything would have been dug up by the time I had finished my education in it and started to work with it.

So I gave up on it ...

 

After that I simply went from wanting to work with sports in some way, but that changed pretty quickly and I had no plans nor dreams at all of what I wanted to do for a few years ...

Until J.K. Rowling inspired me to the point of me wishing to someday become an author. That was the only plan and goal I kept for myself, and it's still what I'm striving to achieve (of course I don't plan on being as famous as her, I wouldn't dare to even if I got the chance to. I'm much too shy for that).

Library skills are amazingly useful in so many other occupations so don't regret it.

 

Teacher, writer, librarian, artist. I actually did 1 and 3 and now I make use of 2 in my day job (primarily running the thrift shop for our humane society).

Hmmm, I remember wanting to be a ballerina or gymnast when I was itty bitty.  By middle school on I wanted to be a doctor, more specifically on the ER Trauma Team.  By the time I did get to go to college, marriage and children came first,it was still my dream.  Sadly, just before graduating with my Associates my health took a turn for the worse.  Accepting I had to stop pursuing that dream has not been easy.  I did get my Associates, but stopped there.  I do not regret having my children, but should not have allowed my ex stop me from going to college sooner.
