*didn't see this anywhere, so...
So what did you want to be when you grew up, when you were a kid. Or, what do you want to be if you still are a kid?

When I was younger I wanted to be a Fireman :| Now I want to either be a Chef or a Pastry chef as I love me some cooking.

I wanted to be a dinosaur. Rawr. >:D
Never really thought about what I wanted to do as in a job. Something with animals, like a whale trainer or something like that, where I probably imagined I would just be playing with them all day.

I remember specifically that I wanted to be a power ranger.
I ended up an animator haha :3 I am happy as one <3

I always wanted to be a teacher like my daddy because I'm good at it but getting to the point where I can teach requires much more school than I'm willing to do. xD;
Now I just kind of want to have a go at everything. I'm going to school for automotive tech and that's the main thing but also I intend to take a bartending course. And I'll go do a bit of acting for stage and music videos and commercials and TV because Mum can hook me up with people who cast for those. And I guess I'll just kind of poke around and do jobs that seem mildly interesting, like tour guiding at local historical sites.
There's nothing I actually really want to be. I just want to do all kinds of things.

Garbage man. I don't want to now, but I still respect the profession.

I wanted to be a writer first, but then I failed at writing. I did have a few of my words, mostly poems, published in books though.
Wanted to be a singer, but failed at singing (though i still do some work on that). I had a gig in a few bands as lead vocal for a bit. Now I just do backup or lead for other people's projects.
Wanted to design games, and helped design a few (indie games though. i don't want to work for any big titles that focus more on you know flashy stuff......I'm oldschool and to passionate for that), mostly as an artist/animator in 2D sprites, and still work on that slowly.
Oh I also dabbled in marine biology sciences and was in a school wrestling team. But that never went anywhere lol
What I became? Disabled at age 22/23.

When I was younger, I wanted to be an astronaut because I wanted to see what it was like in space. But I don't think I might become one because of the rigorous training involved.

When I was very young, I wanted to be a policeman. That's what my Daddy was and so I just assumed I'd do the same thing.
When I got a little older, I settled on being a teacher. My teachers were the people I respected the most and so I figured if I could live like them that would be a bad thing. When I got to the eighth grade and started learning French and fell in love with that, I decided I wanted to be a high school French teacher.
Then not long after that I discovered just how much I hated children and now I'm not sure exactly what I want to do. I do know I want to write (a-dime-a-dozen as that sounds) but I'm not 100% sure how or what I want to write.

When I was younger, I wanted to be the head coach of my favorite NFL team, the Dallas Cowboys.
Becoming a coach is one of the many paths I can take from my intended major, Sports Management, so my dream could actually be a reality.
But, I probably want to be an event planner and plan events like the Super Bowl, or the BCS Championship game.

I wanted to be everything I still want tobe today dancer, singer, actress, doctor, police officer, and lawyer.
August 18th, 2012, 07:53 AM
A singer I thiiink? I decided on in the media or a lawyer when I was 10 though, so that was a young age to make my proper choice imo!!
August 18th, 2012, 10:26 AM
Wow, this brings back a fond memory of me from way back. When I was 5, I wanted to be a garbageman. Why that choice of profession? I can't be sure, but I think it was cause I heard they made a lot of money. And as a kid, money was something incredible. Then I grew up to around age 8 and decided I'd be a doctor, like my pops. But when I got into middle school, that changed into me wanting to become a meteorologist. No idea why, to be honest. When highschool started, though, I sorta went back to being a doctor. Then I took biology and decided I was crazy.
Now, I think I've got the perfect choice: a therapist!
August 18th, 2012, 11:48 AM
I want to be my mum I was told I wanted to be a fishmonger when I grew up.
August 18th, 2012, 11:59 AM
When I was about 6 years old, I wanted to grow up to be a Veterinarian. I love animals, and, well... My 3-month old puppy had fallen ill and died at the vet's office. That's when I decided to become a vet. In my high school years, I drifted away from that dream. Now I'm studying to become an accountant, zzz.

When I was younger (around 5-to-12 years old), I always wanted to be the next "Pele", greatest soccer player ever.
When I was in high school (around 16-19 years old) I wanted to be in a heavy metal band. **I imagined myself just like Dave Mustaine** That was the time in my life that I discovered metal music.
Now (I am going to be 27 years old on Dec. 13th) I want to be a professional chef. I want to take culinary classes, but I also want to be an artist, I'm always practicing my drawing skills.
August 18th, 2012, 03:17 PM
When I was in kindergarten, I wanted to be a nurse. During elementary and middle school, I wanted to be a teacher. Staying in school sounded like fun back then. Then I wanted to be a famous writer, with huge dreams about my fanfic becoming ~canon~ (lolololololol). Then I hought voice acting would be cool for like a month. Now? No idea. I'll be stuck making pizza for the rest of my days.
August 18th, 2012, 04:12 PM
I wanted to rule the world when I was a kid. And I stlll do. But I also wanted to do many other different things like being a police officer or an athlete of some nature. A scientist crossed my mind too. In the end, it seems I've gone into the field of information technology.
August 18th, 2012, 04:44 PM
When I was very young, I wanted to be a comedian for a short period of time. Then a game developer when I was a wee older, and then I made the decision I wanted to be a director for animated films. Rather recently it was when I completely destroyed that idea. There's just no way, and I'm an optimist! And after that I wanted to be either an evolutionary biologist or a zoologist. Scratch that idea. And my most recent, and hopefully permanent idea is a chiropractor.
I don't want to be a chiropractor to help people (call me selfish if you want lol), I want to be one because they make a ridiculous amount of money in relation to the work they do and, believe me, they don't work very hard. It doesn't relate to my passions in any way but hey, if I make a lot of money in that profession I can do something that relates to my passions on the side. I just want to own a spacious house to support myself and my mother, have the money for some nice extras and to help out some animals, and live happily. Nothing too ambitious at all XD

When I was a child, I always wanted to be an artist. I loved drawing. I still do [love drawing that is], until one day at a career fest in middle school, I learned that being an artist was really hard and it's very hard for them to make much money.
But at this career fair, something else caught my eye: Interior designing. I loved the idea of decorating houses and such. I love mixing and matching colors and paint swatches [and I still do]. When my mom is painting, she'll consult me for what colors/accessories would look nice.
This all changed when I got into high school, senior year. I tried to find schools around me for interior design. No luck.
It was April 2008, 2 months before graduation. I had no idea what I wanted to do. Then one night, my mom came into my bedroom and said "Arielle, you'd be a great kindergarten teacher." [Because I would babysit, and it was a wonderful experience for me.]
I thought about it, and decided to major in Early Childhood Education. I absolutely love it. I'm still going to school for early childhood ed, and I am almost done! I start my student teaching next spring! ^_^

I wanted to be supreme overlord of the galaxy. I still do, actually. Later dreams of being a rich and powerful CEO kinda crashed and burned too xD
August 20th, 2012, 12:53 PM
I wanted to play for the Oakland Raiders when i was younger. My dad and I had watched them on ESPN for the past ten years, and I always wanted to be one of them.
However, when I became ten, I was into the fanfiction stuff around pokemon forums and I said, "Hey, I could probably come up with something better." My FanFics never really got too far since I am a really busy person with school, sports, family etc. My longest work was called AQS: A Quilava Story, but I quit because of the lack of critics. I wanted my works to be cared about by SOMEONE other than me.
So for now, I play high school football and hope that I may be drafted into the NFL one day.
August 20th, 2012, 02:34 PM
For me it's always been about helping animals or people. I wanted to be a vet, a scientist, a teacher, a social worker, anything for the good of everyone. I did not see myself succumbing to 'the man' and serving corrupted coffee to corrupted people.
August 20th, 2012, 02:50 PM
I wanted to be a doctor when I was a kid, then I realised that everyone I knew and their mother wanted the same thing, so I fell into a sort of confusion as to what I wanted to do in the future, going from doctor to teacher to politician to author to lawyer...yeah, I was confused. It was only until a few months ago when I decided for certain that I wanted to do something health-related, like becoming a doctor or a pharmacist. I want to enter Biomedicine as a course in university. We'll see where that takes me.
August 21st, 2012, 12:15 AM
I wanted to be a writer, then a singer, then a dancer!
Buut nowadays; I want to be a musician, I'm hoping to go to uni in a few years to study clarinet... and if that doesn't work out, I am going to be an artist
August 21st, 2012, 04:12 AM
A game programmer. I have Nintendo to thank for that. I wanted to create my own games. I even drew my own characters and wrote stupid storylines. Unfortunately, I had to settle for Architecture - which is great.
Oh, and I wanted to be a samurai.
August 21st, 2012, 12:02 PM
I think that I remember saying that I wanted to be a TV Presenter, back when I was 8. tbh, I really don't know what I want to do now, and I would say that I was still a kid XD
August 21st, 2012, 05:03 PM
I wanted to be a teacher at first, then an FBI agent, and lastly a meteorologist. I was intending on going to school for meteorology but there's SO MUCH MATH INVOLVED OH MY GOD, and I really really suck at math. :( Now, I got a degree in Information Technology, and I am now intending on getting my bachelor's degree in that same field, with a minor in English.
August 21st, 2012, 10:34 PM
Growing up I either wanted to be a teacher... or a professional golfer. While one is still a possibility, I am much more interested in technology and business, and would rather have a career that follows one of those paths.
August 25th, 2012, 12:43 PM
As a kid, I was dead set on becoming a surgeon. If I was still a kid, that most likely would've still been my aim.
Then again, I also wanted to be a writer and a psychologist. ._. And a police detective at some point(during 9th grade, when I took Criminal Justice class).
August 27th, 2012, 09:06 AM
A houseboy (look it up) to fund collage, then a prosecutor.

When I was 5 I was OBSESSED with airplanes and airports. I remember I had my own little (and surprisingly realistic) airport where I would fly airplanes out of. I was convinced I was going to be a pilot. As I got older I grew out of that and was sure that I would be a meteorologist. As of now I want to be an architect. But that could change. ;)
