well i hope nobody laughs but i used to read a lot of comic books as a kid, so I always wanted to be comic book writer/artist growing up. sadly, i didn't have much talent for it as all my characters were derived rip offs, as I couldn't come up with a original story to save my life. lol. which is probably why my family and friends kept telling me to give it up growing up.
First, a bank teller (I liked the atmosphere of a bank or maybe the smell of money? ), then an astronaut (til I watched on TV how they train you by having you spin around on this thing which is supposed to simulate being in a spacecraft or space or something), then a chemist (til I failed chemistry in high school), then an archaeologist (they didn't have this department at the university I attended).
I also have always wanted to be a writer, though Unfortunately, I don't think I have much talent for it, but maybe it's more of a problem with fear of rejection and always second guessing myself
