I'm not sure if this has been done before but I was telling Mata in the job thread that I wanted to be a journalist when I was 10/11.

It got me wondering what other people wanted to be when they were small/grew up or what people want to be when they are older, etc. Obviously I don't know how old everyone is or whether people have a dream career they can't have and so on.

Anyway, I'll get the ball rolling...I wanted to be a journalist when I grew up smile.gif

When I was very small I wanted to be a deep sea diver, because I always loved swimming...

But then I read about giant squid and a deep primal fear overcame me so I decided that perhaps it wasn't the job for me.

After that I wanted to be an animator, and I always loved talking about the ideas in sci-fi. Now I'm an animator for a living and doing a thesis on cyberpunk. Things have worked out rather well for me! You never know, in the next few months I might even begin to start making nearer to the national average wage from it all too! biggrin.gif Following dreams is great, but until you really begin getting close to them it's very hard to pay the bills.

When I was little, I used to collect any bits off old televisions or remote controlled cars etc., and keep them in a shoebox - calling it my "Inventions Kit". I wanted to be an inventor when I was little. A rather odd, ambiguous dream career, I have to admit. As it is pretty difficult to have a career inventing.

Then I started watching Rolf's Cartoon Club on Children's ITV (I adored that programme, and I wish it had never been axed), and I wanted to be an animator. I loved the idea of making models and moving them a bit at time, taking a shot, and eventually making my own little movie. These days, I do the odd animation stuff in Flash, but I don't share it with the world like Mata does so successfully. That's because I am really, really bad at most conventional graphical art. If I could have any skill, it would be to be able to draw superbly well. Unfortunately, I have zero talent in that area.

However, there's one 'career' I always wanted to have, and I still do want to eventually achieve - and I am going to at least give it a go. And that is to be author. I would love to write, and be published. That would be fantastic. Hopefully, some day soon...

Aside from that, I have the odd fleeting ideas about making movies (so many ideas in my head, just no way to actually get them made), or doing music videos, or being a musician of some sort or other. I think I can sing quite well, when I actually try seriously, rather than playing the fool, and I've played the piano since I was about seven. And I've just started to learn the acoustic guitar, and seem to have been able to pick that up quite well. But still... I don't think I could really make it in that industry.

When I was but a wee lass, I wanted to be an astronaut. I always thought if I went to Oxford, did Physics, flew to America and asked, they'd let me.
As age began to disillusion me, I wanted to be a top stage lighting specialist, a professional cellist, and then a journalist in foreign countries, reporting back.
As it is now, I want to be a chemist, and discover a cure for cat allergy. One specifically for that, so I can hug my cat again sad.gif so it's a good thing I'm applying to do an MChem next year.

From pretty much the moment I was born I wanted to be a veterinarian. Then I grew up and went to vet school and realized that chemistry hated me and I hated school. Seven years' worth of slaving at various undergrad and grad schools is NOT for me. Now...I'm not sure. It's a rather curious feeling for me to not know what I want to do. I spent my entire life driving at this one goal and to have it flop like this is really quite disheartening. Actually, if any of you guys have had something like this happen to you, I could use a little advice.

When I go back to college I think I'm going to major in literature. I love reading and writing, so maybe something along those lines is the job for me. If only I could get a job as a reader for a publishing company, or a game tester for Wizards of the Coast. I'd LOVE to pick apart D&D and make it like it was before the awful 3rd Edition came along! tongue.gif

When I was ickle I wanted to be an astronomer, and I read a lot of books waaay over my head. At some point it struck me that there seemed to be an awful amount of math involved in this "science" stuff and gave up on that pretty quickly. Animator died because I don't have the patience for it; then journalist, but the censorship of the press drove me off that one. I'm looking into colleges with cultural anthropology majors; I don't know what I'd do with that degree, but chances are it'll end up being teaching. /shrug

First time I read that, I thought you said 'vegetarian'.
"A career? As a vegetarian?"

I used to want to be a teacher once, as well. I think that there is probably a massive percentage of the population that, at one time or other, wanted to be a teacher - if just fleetingly. Several people I know either a.) still want to be a teacher, or b.) wanted to be, once.

Does this ring true for you? (points)

I wanted to be a vet too. Never really thought about what I wanted to be until my dog died and I wanted to be a vet so I could bring him back *sniff*. Now I realise that though I am 'gifted and talented' (I hate that phrase) I am also far too lazy and will not get the grades or be bothered to go through 6 years of Vet Schools, so I want to be a Psycologist (probably in a field which I can experience, like helping depressed or suicidal young people) and do a max of 4.

Failing that an I'll continue acting and hopefully go professional, possibly Directing more than acting though.

I changed my mind several times about this as a child. When I was three, I wanted to be a princess, and thats it. It changed several times after that, from princess to amimator, then to video game tester, then to fashion designer, then by the time I was in second grade I decided I had to be a writer, it's stayed about the same ever since, really, only now along with being a writer I want to be a psycholigist...or an actress...although, actually I don't know that I would do acting professionally. So currently It's Psycholigist, with writing just as a hobby. I haven't been able to write anythign good lately anyway.

I guess I wanted to be an architect because my grandpa had been and so is my uncle, and they both made mucho dinero. But I discovered I have no head for spatial relations... so I'll probably mull about in the social sciences department for twenty years, have a midlife crisis, and become Elvis.

In the 7th grade (I'm a junior in HS now), I decided I wanted to be a fashion designer. Since then, I've learned a few things: a) There are rarely jobs open and it's very competitive. b ) I can draw when I have a picture in front of me, and can use something like a ruler to get the proportions correct. But I'm not that good drawing from memory. I need to memorize the shape of the body. and c) I've realized I'm not that great at creating really "original" designs. Darn. sad.gif

So in the past year, I decided I should have a back-up plan or two. a) Fashion marketing. I might be happy owning a little boutique if I can decide the type of fashions I sell. or b ) A seamstress of some sort. Maybe for plays. In addition to drawing designs, I also like creating the real thing. My favorites are formal gowns, costumes including historical period gowns, and, of course, fun gothy clothes. biggrin.gif

I could always start making my own stuff, like the dudes from Lip Service. It didn't matter that she couldn't draw (I read an interview). Except it's just like my drawings: I spend a lot of time on them, making them perfect, and then I don't want to give them away. unsure.gif That might be a problem. ... tongue.gif

In two years, if I'm accepted, I'll be going to Stephens college in Columbia, Missouri (aka 'College Town') to major in Fashion Design. Wish me luck. rolleyes.gif

List of things I have wanted to be, in more or less chronological order:

1) Astronaut 2) Animator for Walt Disney
3) Artist 4) Writer
5) Teacher 6) Theatre set designer
7) Art Historian

Now, I want to be an art historian, a professor of art history, artist, curator, museum/gallery director, *Geoff's wife*, and a mother, and I am proud to say I have made a pretty good start on the first 2 and have plans in place for the rest! What's odd is that the last 2 options wouldn't have occurred to me 2 years ago to put in a list of "what I want to be" but now they do.

I used to want to be a writer, but my creativity got sapped by standardized tests.

Then I wanted to be a psychologist, but I've shifted to a LCSW (licensed clinical social worker). My ex-boyfriend was a foster child, and I got to know his social workers pretty well, and an LCSW mixed social work with psychology.

For those keen to be a Psychologist I hate to burst the "only four years" bubble but it'll take a little longer. An undergraduate degree in psychology is the first step. You then need to go on and get a Master's degree at least and a few courses on how to counsel. At least to be one of those sorts that charge $100 per hour. I didn't have the patience for it after getting the undergraduate degree, myself, and didn't really feel like I wanted to work as an aide in a psychiatric ward at the hospital. That being the only job I've seen that asks for an undergrad psych degree. However you could be really good at the job and really have found your niche so don't let me discourage you. Lord knows we've enough mixed up people to provide lots of good psychologists loads of work. tongue.gif

I wanted to be an audiologist when I was little. I had my ears checked and thought it would be really cool to be the lady who got to press the buttons on the master panel.

I want to work in China as a teacher, or work for an international aid organization, at least for a few years. Why? Because I don't know what I like doing for a job... but I like helping people, and I like teaching and working with kids. So, hopefully....

I don't really know what I wanted to be when I was little. I've really had no idea for most of my life, and to be truthful, I still don't really know.

When I was a little boy, I wanted to be a fireman and save people. Then I grew up and hated mankind... so I wanted to be a Vet... But then I realized I couldn't bear watching suffering animals (I cry alot due to my extreme empathy with animals)... so I wanted to be a computer programmer... but then I found running, so I wanted to be an Olympic Athlete... then I broke my knee just before I was going to train with Team USA 2000... so I wanted to become a computer programmer and system designer... then I realized how little attention span I have... so I wanted to be an entrepreneur... then I realized I was a broke deadbeat...

So here I am, with the animal empathy of Tarzan, the programming skillz of Bill Gates, the hardware savvy of Steve Wazniac/Jobs, the running speed of Flo Jo, the management skills of a white collar hero, and the wallet of the bum on 5th and Main... Someone needs to give me a course in living...

Huh, over the years, I've had a terribly long list of things I've wanted to be. In approximately chronological order, here goes:

1) Pastor - back in the evangelical Christian days... fun times dry.gif

2) Lawyer - this one still appeals to me, in some ways, and I wonder if I dismissed it too soon.

3) Environmental Scientist

4) Opera singer - got surprisingly close to this one, but then pulled back when I realized it offered a lifestyle I didn't want.

5) Musicologist, possibly focussing on the twentieth century.

6) High school music teacher

7) Chemist

8) Biochemist

9) Minister

10) Religious Studies scholar/professor

11) Toxicologist

12) Veterinarian

13) Dentist

14) Writer

15) Oral radiologist and/or orthodontist

The last three are the ones that I'll probably end up pursuing in my life, at least to some degree. Actually, my hope is graduate, possibly specialize, practice for a few years, pay off student debt, and write.

Hmm... When I was little, I wanted to be a chemist. Then I bought my first Sega Genesis (later in life, I took High School Chemistry which proved too difficult, so that's another nail in the coffin.) Anyway, after chemist, it was astronaut (wanted to walk on Jupiter... I was five!) but my parents watched "Apollo 13" with me. I decided I'd rather not die in the cold vacuum of space.

After astronaut, I became ridiculously enamored in my gaming, so I wanted to be a designer. That dream was put on hiatus (hah!) as I discovered just how much I like to write and how much I like the show Law and Order. It turned to a mystery writer after that, but then Law and Order: SVU started. My focus turned to psychologist (what can I say? I'm interested in loonies.) I became more and more enamored with my music, so I decided I wanted to also have a degree in music along with my psych.

Anyway, as of now, I've been really looking at game art designer, script writer, and music composer. I figure I could do all of that in the video game business. Wanna guess which company I want to work for?

Anyone?

Anyone?

Yeah, that's right. Capcom (though more specifically, I'd like to work for their second party company Clover Studios. They have all of the best games... Viewtiful Joe included, baby.)

When I was little I wanted to be an astronaut or a racecar driver, Indy cars to be exact. So I raced everything with tires till I was about 18. Then I decided that I was never going to make it a professional racer due to the lack of money. Talent was never an issue. There were few races I ever lost. So I decided that I would be a police officer, I got to drive fast and stop bad guys. Then I realized that 25,000 dollars a year was not worth dying for. And it was really hard to arrest people for doing things I condoned.
Somehow I got into computers and have secured a very nice job as a LAN admin. I have my mind set on opening a soul food/ blue cafe with my girl friend Kat (karismaklysm). I want it to be an outlet for blues/jazz artist, theater troupes, poets, and artists in a very juke joint atmosphere. During the day we serve authentic soul food. With the capital from that I plan to open a massive gay and lesbian dance club. If that doesn’t work I am opening an all girl garage. And if that doesn't work I am still looking at my kegs on wheels concept (think keg party in a hot dog cart). wink.gif laugh.gif
So we will see what happens in a few years.

Well I know a bit about how you feel. I want to work in some sort of heritage field and that requires lots of degrees, post-grad degrees, work experience, being up someone important's arse that sort of thing :roll:

No one told me this after my degree had finished and I was extremely disheartened as otherwise I'd have stayed on and done more studying or worked harder at my degree to get a MPhil place or something.

Anyway now I'm saving for a postgrad diploma and perhaps I'll get a lucky break? biggrin.gif

After the usual little's boy's prefferred jobs (fighter pilot, astronaut, train driver), I upped the ante (aged 6). I looked on the globe in my bedroom, saw that the largest country (at the time) was Russia, and declared that i wanted to be the ruler of Russia, because it was the biggest one.

After a short stint as Tsar, I got bored, and then decided that aerospace engineering was my bag (aged 7 or 8), after flying around alot while my dad was working overseas, and falling in love with the majesty of flight.

And that's exactly what I'm doing now. While I still have that childhood fascination with 500,000 tonne chunks of metal that glide effortlessly through the air, I'm becoming a little disillusioned with the beaurocracy and tedium of the day-to-day work in a large organisation.

Ideally, I'd like to work in the videogame industry, but as what, i don't know. A testing job, which I'd be bloody good at, wouldn't pay enough, and sounds too much like hard work. I've been meaning to see what jobs Nintendo USA have on offer, as they're located in Seattle, where I'm trying to get back to (green card notwithstanding).

Really, I don't give a crap what I'm doing as long as it's:
( a ): Challenging
( b ): Financially rewarding enough keep me and the wife in videogames and fluffy lounge pants
( c ): Emotionally rewarding.

What worries me is that I'll spend on this time trying to get into a career I think will fascinate me and then hate it sad.gif
