What did you want to do as a job in the future as a child when you grew up to be an adult? Or if you are still in high school or whatever, what do you want to in the near future? I'll let a couple people answer. This is what you wanted to do as a child, or in high school, and what you ended up doing instead.

When I was little I wanted to be a meteorologist, but now I work for a school district in their customer support deparment. No where remotely related to meteorology, but still fun nonetheless.

When I was a little chubby baby/toddler, I really wanted to be an astronaut (loved astronomy and still does), then I went through a phase where I wanted to be a FBI agent, but then I learned that you had to be a certain height and weight and in shape and then learn 5 million different languages other than French, German and Italian, so I screwed that. Then I got older and I wanted to be a meterologist because telling everything that tomorrow it's gonna ruin your wedding cuz it's gonna rain would be fun but then I learned that you had to use "rocket science" and use a billion calculations to find that out so I had to scratch that off. Then after, I wanted to be a news anchor, and I still kinda do, but then I found the catch--you have to write some of the news and possibly do your own little segment, which I hate, so it's over.

My Job History:

6: Waitress (Yeah, my parents loved it when I told people that one)
7-11: Teacher
12: Interior Designer
13 - Present: I'm not quite sure what the career name is, but I want to go into IVF - its a subset of genetics, you test embryos for genetic diseases.

Although if I could do anything, I would be Epoine in Les Miserables.

Well, I went through the phase where I wanted to be a cop. Then I wanted to be an actor in Hollywood (that'd be fun, but it's unrealistic), then I wanted to be a cook (still do kind of, but meh), then I wanted to be a lawyer or real estate agent "cause they get paid good", and then I wanted to be a Forensic science technician, but that seems a bit boring, and hard, and there's been times when I wanted to be a teacher. I think it'd be fun to direct a movie though, but for something more realistic, maybe something law or politics related, because I think i'd enjoy that, and be good at that.

I wanted to be a veterinarian until I realized that it takes, like, work and stuff. Boy, it sure would make me happy it if you'd read about it in my blog.

Kids on the bus want me to be a garbage man just so I can say, "I'm a genius but I chose to be a garbage man."
