    I want to become a Barrister after completing my high school. My Grandpa, my Dad, both are Lawyers. Whenever they discuss about any legal matter, I sit and listen to their conversation and give my opinion on it. I think, its a great profession and I would like to help those people who can't afford expensive litigations. That's my ambition and I will fulfill it. smile

    I want to be a computer engineer before, but sadly I became an accountant. Well, the desire is still in me, I assemble computers and help others fix theirs.

    You know it's weird. When I was younger I wanted to become a pro athlete. It didn't matter what sport because I was talented in all that I tried. However, after I graduated high school that ended. Since then, my pursuits have always been based on vague criteria, and my scattered employment history attests to that fact.

    I wanted to be a guitarist in a rock band.  And from there, I wanted to go into acting, then write a bestselling novel.

    I wanted to star in a Broadway musical.  That was kind of my geeky twist on everyone else's rock star fantasy.  Instead, I became a boring lawyer.

    I've always wanted to be a writer and artist. I actually wrote a hub similar to your question. If you want to look at it http://hubpages.com/hub/The-Wisdom-We-Had-As-Children

    I dreamed of being a jockey.  I think I finally gave up on the notion when I was about 11 - which, oddly enough was around the time I started taking riding lessons.  I think I realized that having been the tall kid in class most of my life, I wasn't magically going to turn out short.  The funny part is, I'm 5'3".  If that was still what I wanted to do, my size wouldn't prohibit me from doing so.

    I wanted to be an electronic technician and a truck driver... or was it an electronic technician and own a Peterbuilt or Kenworth Truck as my personal vehicle.  I think it was the second.   I was enamored with Big Rigs from a VERY young age.. but really wanted to have the same job as my dad..... hmmmmm
