    A brain surgeon, actress, unicorn owner. Instead I'm a writer. It's basically the same thing.

    I think I wanted to be a Zamboni driver. My career goals changed and decided to prolong the job decision indefinitely.

    I wanted to be a lawyer, probably as the result of watching too many 1980s legal dramas on television.  I actually work as a university lecturer teaching English Literature and really just stumbled into it by chance.  As it turns out, I love my job.

    I always wanted to work with kids I never thought of doing anything else really. I have been doing my job for the last 6 years and still loving it.

    I wanted to be a Paediatrician but that changed because parenting came in the picture.  And my focus changed to being a mother so my dream is no more.

    When I was in third grade, I had the most wonderful, inspiring, motivational teacher. It was then that I decided I wanted to be a teacher. When I was eleven, I was in a bicycle accident, fractured my skull, and it was then that I decided I wanted to become a special education teacher.

    I seriously wanted to play Professional Darts as a kid... I would still love to, and while I am nowhere near good enough I still hope that one day it will magically all come together and the dream becomes reality...
