Are you end up what you want to be when you were kid?

Well, not me obviously. When I was kid, everytime an adult asked me what do I want to be, proudly I will answer "I want to be a doctor as a medical doctor ". But, later on in school I found out I hate biology and math, instead I love learning social study, cultural and languages. And here I am grown up married with kids. My job more on dealing with public relation and customer service, but I do love it very much. Hey, mom and dad, I might not be a MD but I am happy as I can be. How about everybody else. Do you really become as what you want to be when you wwere kid?

THey say if you are doing something you love that it's not work....and it sounds like you are doing something you love! I did turn out to be what I wanted to be...a writer. I am the author of three books....and working on the fourth. It has been a struggle though....and I still work a full time job.....but it's coming around!

No, when I was small, I wanted to be something else, now I'm a teacher. i'm not so people person, hated to repeat everytime what I say and not so liking kids, but now, I'm an elementary school teacher who has found that actually its a great job and now begin to understand herself better. I guess its right when people say everything happens for a reason and that there must be something good out from anything that happen.
