When I was a kid I changed my mind a lot. I probably wanted to be a veterinarian for the longest time though. Most of my adult life I have worked in the retail industry though instead. I have done volunteer work with animals though, including taking a few of them into my home and nursing them back to health. I guess that is as close as I will ever get.

i dreamed of becoming a veterinarian, too. i had about 13 dogs when i was still single and i played doctor to all of them as well. :)

Unfortunately, I get too involved with my patients, not a good practice for a veterinarian so it probably wouldn't have been a good choice for me. I would have loved nursing them back to health, but it would have been really rough on me whenever I came across one that I couldn't help.

Some one has to teach or no one would be there to learn it is a good profession! I wanted to be a race car driver or a jockey. I could do neither when I grew up for it wasnt a thing girls could do back then they wouldnt let ya in. Now I am alot of different thing but mainly a mom and that takes up alot of professions at once .

I always wanted to be an Engineer, but I had a liking for aeroplanes and made model ones and gliders as a hobby. So I wanted to be an aeronautical engineer. But it never went the way I wanted and I ended up being an Accountant. Your being a teacher, many architects and scientists will be groomed in your shadow. So you have grown up into an all round profession.

majority in our classroom during my kinder years wanted to be a doctor because they want to help those sick people and the poor who can't afford to pay the bills in the hospital.When i was in 5th grade i dream to become a veterenarian, and later in my highschool days i wanted to become a stewardess. but, i'm now in college and taking up NURSING..LoL* it wasn't my dream. it was my parent dream.sigh*

thats the role of parents. they always want the best for you. and since nurses are the most sought after profession nowadays its a sure ball job waiting for you out there after you graduate. :)

Hello SeventhJuly, We often ask our kids about their ambition in future which makes no sense as no kid is aware of their present,past and future.It is better to leave them for a natural growth.

I always wanted to be teacher but i was not confident about it.Eventually i ended being a financial consultant which i never thought when i was a kid.
