What did you want to be when you were little? and What do you want to be right now? How did you change your mind about it? Discuss.

I don't have it planned out yet. However, I do want to be involved in science and/or medicine, so maybe a nurse doctor, despite the messy work.

I thought I wanted to do something along the lines of graphic design or work for a magazine. But since then, I really don't know anymore. I've been having doubts and questioning what I was going to do with my life ever since I started really looking at the fact that this is my final year in high school.

I remember wanting to be a hairdresser first, because my Dad's cousin was a hairdresser.

Then I wanted to work for the RSPCA (http://www.rspca.org.uk/), because I love animals, but quickly went off the idea when my Mum was all "I don't think you want to see injured animals."

Then quite a few years later I started taking Cisco Network Academy after school when I was 16, I decided I wanted to be a computer technician, technical support and the like, particularly in networks and security. Two years later, I scored an apprenticeship with my local council, and I'm one year into it now. Winner. =D

So yeah, I'm in the middle of getting what I wanted to do.

I'm working toward a computer science degree. I plan to go into IT.

When I was younger, I wanted to be a firefighter, then a politician, then a lawyer, then a doctor (in that order). I gave up on doctor around 16 when I realized it would take eight years out of my life just training for it.

Right now I just want to be happy.

Me?

As far back as I could remember, the first "thing I wanted to be when I grew up" was a fireman, then a martial artist, then an astronaut, then a voice actor, then a cartoonist, then a graphic designer, then an architect, then (and currently) an engineer. My college classes are geared towards civil and mechanical engineering, so for the sake of not wasting college money, I hope I don't change my mind again. XD

I'm studying finance now, but I'd really like to be a trucker. Or stay in college my whole life.

When I was younger, I wanted to an electronics technician (I think that's what it's called). It's the job that my dad does. When I visited his work, I was enthralled by all of the computers, half-disassembled computers, and just random computer components laying around. Looking back on it, I'm not even sure why I wanted this job.

However, I now want to be a pharmacist. I guess it's mainly because in the rare instances that I'm taking medication, I find it interesting to look up the said medication(s), see what they treat, and how they work. I have a strong interest in science (particularly chemistry), am decent in math, and can write and speak pretty well. So yeah, pharmacist it is.

Ugh, awesome. I envy anyone that can cook, because I can't. I do like baking though...

Well, when I was a kid, I never looked forward into becoming anything. It wasn't until high school that I decided to work somewhere in the field of arts, like graphic designer, even a cartoonist. Some family issues made me change my mind so I wanted to work in law enforcement. I'm getting ready to work on an AA Degree in Criminal Justice and I just interviewed the chief of police at our local police department a few days ago. So far, I'm liking it this career.

I've always thought something involving computers, however atm I've found what I'd like to do; Computer Forensics (legal and professional hax0rz ftw). With a backup of Game Design if I don't like it/can't find a job in it. I know the subjects I need and the degrees I have to acquire at university. But there's still time to decide what I want to do. ^.^

Though I need to decide soon, however having a Bachelor in Computer Science sounds ftw imo. XD

I plan no becoming a professor and then maybe later get into Law, probably Civil or Federal.

So yeah, teaching or defending people, I AM grown up but in the process of becoming what I want to be. :)

Considering every week I change my mind about what I'm really ~passionate~ about, I really don't know where I'm headed. I see myself living in a Camry parked in someone's driveway seeking WiFi service, which doesn't sound horrible. I'm notorious for carelessly improvising my life. The only thing I don't want to be when I grow up (to think I actually use that phrase as if I ever will grow up) is lonely.

:pink_giggle: That's funny. It would be fun to be a giant marshmallow. Or a ghost. Or a whale. Any of those things would be fun to be. I like your sense of humor.

When I was very young I wanted to be an astronaut O.O I have no idea why, considering that now I am afraid of even the very prospect of going into space. So that won't do it for me. I wanted to be an astronomer after that but when I found out how much went into it, I didn't want to anymore. I went through a couple of different job choices and now I've settled on either a magazine writer, an author, or a singer. My dream job is to be a singer because I love singing with all of my heart. It's just something I love to do, and to perform as well. I like making people happy with my music and just entertaining in general. I sing for my friends all the time and even today in school I took the microphone from my music teacher's room and used it and walked all around the room like it was a giant stage :pink_giggle:

An author would be fun because I love to write. I'm always writing, so I think it will be the job that suits me best. I don't want to sound like I'm bragging, but I'm good at it (possibly very good?) and it's the most promising career for me. I might start off as a magazine writer if I don't get to be a singer (even though I am planning on recording a demo CD recently). That way I can pay my bills whilst I write some kind of book or something.

I've got my career pretty well planned out.

I am already grown up (my growth plates have been gone for over two years).

When I was younger (age 3-6), I wanted to be a paleontologist. After that, I wanted to be a physicist. Then I studied astronomy and considered that as a possible field. At age 11, I wanted to be a chef. After a year, I settled on some sort of scientific research, either chemical, physical, or biological.

The 6 years after that were devoted to deciding which of the three I would go with. I chose biology, but continued researching/studying other fields on the side.

I'm pretty good at cooking today, though.

Baaaah, I'm in university right now doing my BA in Literature and I have no idea what I want to be when I leave. More so since the economy all went to pot and shrunk the job market in the lit field even more ;.; But hopefully I'll get some ideas in October - I'm volunteering at the Literature Festival in Cheltenham (my uni town \o/) and I hope to get to talk to some people about where to go in the literary world.

Journalism is one option I won't ever consider, though. Unless it's to be a research-assistant or something.

As of this current moment, I'm studying to get a BA in both Japanese and Asian Studies. I had originally planned to pursue a degree in Japanese Education so that I could one day become a Japanese teacher here in the United States, but that would involve transferring both my major and my school, and I'm not liking that option as of right now.

I'm not quite sure what kind of career a BA in Japanese is going to land me, but I figure it can't hurt to have one, and I'm not sure what else to do with my life right now. If nothing else, I could get into the JET program and teach English over in Japan, but I guess we'll see what happens when I get my degrees, eh?
