At about 10 years old, we are so sure of what our life will be. What were you going to do when you grew up? Why did you make that choice? Does your life now have anything to do with that dream?Share Happy posting

Hi marguicha...I wanted to be a travel agent of all things. I figured if I workd in an office that sold trips to people maybe I would be able to go on some as an escort to the travelers and get to visit different places in the world. It was not to be though, because like most teenage girls I got a boyfriend and things got serious and then we ended up getting married and having children so I never got to be that travel agent. I have gotten to do some traveling in the continential United States but have never been out of my country. flutterby

Hi, friend. I have, from the time i became sensible, wished to do scientific research. Well, now, i am a computer engineering student, so i want to be a successful software developer in future. But, it does not mean that i have abandoned that dream, still i am rigorously self-researching on the topic of fundamental particle, and if i succeed, it will an end to the long time quest for unification of forces. I am looking forward to it. Happy Mylotting!!

WOW!!! But I suppose that is a dream you had later in life. It doesn´t sound as a child´s dream

Well, yeah, you are right. Children do not dream of doing researches. But, the question is what age you consider as that of a child. Whatever the age is, i acquired the dream when i was 10, but that time, i didn`t have enough standard of knowledge. And, my research on the particular topic started when i was just below 15. By the way, i am 18 now. Thanks for your comment. Happy Mylotting!!

I wanted to be an actress. LOL LOL LOL However its hard to be an actress if you have stage fright and that is what prevented me from applying for Performing Arts School in New York. My mom brought material that I would use to perform for the audtion and I ended chickening out. I regret it but I guess it wasn't in the stars for me. I also believe everything happens for a reason.

It´s easier to want to be an actress than to actually become one. At somre point I was going to be a famous singer. I muxt have been 7 or 8 then. No one told me that my voice wasn´t the best for the job

thats me getting giggy with it.. - shalalalalalalala my oh my..
Well I wanted to be an astronaut and I loved anything and everything to do with outer space science. Unfortunately I was pathetic in maths and physics so I had to settle for the next occupation - business woman- Apart from me being a massive star wars and lord of the rings fan thats the closet I have to my childhood dream. I still have the dream that one day I will be the first black woman to walk on the moon..

Who knows, maybe you´ll still make it. My mom (now 85) gave up her dream of moonwalking just a couple of years ago, after a heart problem.

When I was a primary school student, I wished to become a school teacher when I grew up. Many of my classmates too share the same ambition of mine. And now I am a tuition teacher.
