    Remember when you were young before you even knew anything about politics, money, or marriage, what did you want to be when you grew up? I wanted to be pro baseball player.

    A doctor -> Scientist -> Policeman -> Fireman -> Then I grew up and realized I became easily blood sick -> I am genetically inept at maths -> I'm impulsive -> I enjoy burning things.

    I went with writing instead.

    Marine biologist or in the medical field. smile

    I would swim and try to increase how long I could hold my breath because I didn't know about scuba gear yet.

    And I would walk around with a notepad asking to feel people's foreheads.

    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.  lollollol

    Nah, actually i wanted to be a bank manager, but looking at the recession and how long it would have took me to get there, i'm happy supporting people get jobs and access training.

    First, a bank teller (I liked the atmosphere of a bank or maybe the smell of money? tongue), 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 smile  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 hmm

    I wanted to be a pirate or a cowboy-- but I knew that wasn't allowed for girls, so when I was on the "Art Linkletter Show" I said "singer" (I was told to say that) and I sang "Zip-a-dee-do-dah".
