What did you want to be when you grew up? Did your wish come true or are you still "growing up"?
It is true we have great plans for our careers and our future in general and then life happens. As an adult is there something you still want to be when you grow up?

I really wanted to be a scientist and I am far from that today.

What did u want to be when you grew up and how/what really happened? At a certain age I decided I wanted to be a stay at home mom like my mother. However men today expect women to work and want the second income. I recently got married and in both my marriages I was/am a housewife so it worked out.
