I grew up in a air force family and I've always wanted to be a pilot. Unfortunately, my health prevented me from fulfilling my dreams to join the air force. I have a very poor eyesight. Maybe it was not meant for me. I don't have any regrets and I am happy in what I am doing. My best friends did become pilots and we are having a wonderful time everytime we get together. Any similar experience?

Since I was a child, I was trained to become a professor at college, as my father wanted me to be. In order to do that, he gave me many things: his care, his time, and even a lot of rods. When he found that I was interested in arts, he tried to forbid me. Now, as an adult, I have escape from his prison, but what I'm now is still what he wanted because after such a long and hard training, I can't become anyone else. In fact, for a long time, I have had no idea about what I like to become, though I never feel happy being a professor at college. Now, I regret that I was too weak to fight for my own willings.

All through my school years I wanted to be an airline hostess. I was shattered to find that I did not grow to the specified height, I only grew to be 147cm. But I went on and studied real estate sales which I absolutely loved. Some things don't happen for other reasons, that's the way I see it, I think there must be something better around the bend.
