Well, I have a far off and unlikely dream of becoming a manga-ka in Japan (manga-ka = comic book artist). If I can't get it there, then maybe here in North America. If not, then I guess I kind of want to be an animator... but my art teacher kinda scared me by saying that an animator is a lifelong career. I don't know if I like the idea of doing the same thing for the rest of my life. I've also been thinking of becoming a graphics/web designer, since that's one of my hobbies which I plan to expand on in the future.

Putting my knowledge of the Japanese language might also be fun... I could translate manga for TokyoPop or something. XD *whee!*

;; Stick with the comedian idea. I don't want to end up going to you for my check-ups, SL. I happen to like my limbs attached, thank you very much. ;p

edit: I think it's late. I can't seem to type words properly. XD;

I don't know what I should be, but I think I want to have a really special job in the future, unlike what most other people are going for.
It's really hard for me to decide now though. I'm studying Biology now so I wonder if I should take up something to do with that...

I want to be a manga or Anim artist, just because drawing's my favorite hobby. I also love animals and so I would have to find some sort of job with them involved too. Maybe a dolphin trainer. *_*

Hmm...well most people think i should become some sort of Anime Artist because i'm great at drawing Anime but i'm not so sure about that...
I used to want to be an Anime V.A but i gave up on that dream because of the hard time my Drama teacher gave me ( and that's putting it subtly...) plus living in the U.K made it seem a bit of a longshot..
But hey i'm not so bothered about that, because now i want to be a Teacher

Lol, my grandmother adores dolphins, and so I draw a lot of pictures of them for her. Everyone seems to think they're really good. I might draw some for my art thread and post them up!

That'll be great, Kay-chan. ;D As for me...My mom has been asking me this question recently, since SATs are almost here. >"< My mom wants me to be a teacher, an elementary school teacher, when I graduate from collage.

I used to want to be a Manga-ka, but my dream shattered when I realized that the chances of hitting it "big" are only if you're Japanese, and live in Japan. (since I've never heard of an American going to japan and becoming a Manga-ka. o.o; ) I also have an intrest in writing, and art, so maybe...I want to write children book's and illistrate (sp?) them. And work as a part-time teacher. =P

But who knows? =P Maybe if you can actually go to Japan and start a manga there, you may be very famous. =P Japanese love foreigniers. *_* That's why they dye their hair blond and wear scary contacts. *_*

Lol, I've seen stuff like that. It's funny seeing a little Japanese lady with blonde hair and blue contacts. XD But you may be right, if they do enjoy foreign stuff then starting a manga series there wouldn't be a bad idea!

PC is like a big collection of artists who want to start their own manga... perhaps one day later I'll be seeing a whole series of manga started by the group of PC people

I still don't know what I should be yet... everything seems to be so hard in its own ways
