    In my earliest memories I wanted to be an Archaeologist. I made my 4th grade teacher very angry when I pointed out that the dictonary did not spell it archeology yet she did. I had a facination with pyramids. I still have those likes but decided I wasn't up for never being able to really settle down.

    First I wanted to be a mother, then a fashion designer, then an interior designer. Once I hit high school, I wanted to be an english teacher. However, at college I desired to be a psychology major in either I/O psychology or forensic psychology.

    As a child, I wanted to be an architect as I like drawing buildings. However, my dislike for mathematics did not make this happen. Now I am a marketing professional in charge of advertising, social media, web-design, etc and I immensely enjoyed my present job!

    I remember wanting to be a fireman firstly because of my dad- then as a teenager I went through a phase of wanting to be a fighter pilot, unfortunately I grew too tall for that.

    From the time I was six years old, I wanted to be a teacher. Whenever my cousins and nieces and nephews came to visit, I always wanted to play 'school.' And I did become one and am so glad I did. I just retired after 40 years last fall.

    I wanted to be an artist when I grew up. That did change a few times over the years, president, singer, ballerina, jockey, but always I went back to artist. I am still am going after being an artist.

    As a child, I looked forward to be an accomplished writer, and now I am going to be. However, when I was in college, I wanted to be a fashion designer, but it finally becomes a hobby. I change old clothes into new styles, and I made a hub on it: http://hui.hubpages.com/hub/Hobby-hui

    Ironically...a writer! I kept a journal from the age of 9. It all began with reading as my parents didn't believe in television...so reading, imagination and writing was my dream.  I remember asking for an electric typewriter when I was 13.

    I remember being ask this question as a young child in school and I wasn't quite sure what I really wanted to be. I just remember thinking there was so many cool things you could be and I didn't want to make a decision yet.  Well true story and till this day I keep finding more awesome things to be. Its probably because life has so much exciting things to offer. I'm starting to think I want to be everything i have time for and capable of doing. I'm pretty sure I'm not going to settle for one, not sure if that's a bad or good thing.

    In order of childhood to adulthood: wrestler, artist, historian, photographer, poet, writer, and, lastly, radio host. I am still aiming for photographer, poet, writer but I'm going to try and make a career out of being a radio host to support the other life accomplishments I want to complete.
