When I was little, I remember wanting to be a teacher because I loved my teachers and loved to play school with my sisters. I remember on "grown up" day dressing up like a teacher and explaining why I wanted to be a teacher. I didn't end up being a teacher although I would still like to someday! What did you think you would be when you grew up and are you that person?

It's interesting..I don't remember ever dreaming of being any particular profession. I never thought about this before your question. I have heard many share and I remember asking my kids what they wanted to be, but personally I don't think I ever had any particular wish. I started thinking about a career when I went to college. I wonder how many others are like me :)

When i grow up i wanted to be a teacher someday, a line that i always repeat everytime our grade school teacher would ask us what we wanted to be. But it was 15-20 years ago and i haven't been a teacher in profession, although i wanted something else now, but still i wanted to be a teacher, good thing that i am a gospel teacher in the church i can still teach although i am not a professional teacher .

Well when i was small i always dreamed of being a pilot. But as things kept changing in life my intentions started to be more deeper and as i did my studies still currently studying iam currently perusing financial planning program i never thought i would be in this field. It was God that showed the way and had some different plans

always dreamed of being a veterinarian but things just did not work out that way. there was no need for another vet where i live and i did not have the opportunity to go to school for that subject.

Astronaut is my childhood dream - I love to wear this Astronaut costume and rock the space!
Hi misc11, I was wishing to become an astronaut. I use to glare at the sky wondering those beautiful stars and moon. I feel as if I will rocket and land there and put my country flag.

I used to dream being a story writer because I had a lot of imagination when I was a kid. I think I still have that now, but I have never finished my story until now. In my opinion, only a few people can be what they'd like to be in this world

Being from India it should not surprise anyone that I wanted to be a cricketer when I was a kid.Infact it is the dream of majority of Indian kids even now.However the dream never ever sticked on to any particular job sometimes I have dreamed of being an army pilot a doctor and a lot of other stuff.

When I was growing up I always wanted to be a Doctor, As I got older things changed my father got cancer, As soon as he got Cancer My "Mom". If you can call her that I have not talked to her in years just got up one day and left us. Really took us to the bank on the divorce too, She lied about a whole lot of things. We were forced to sell our house. Which took us almost 2 decades to get the money together to pay for. She never worked, Until She Decided she was moving out.. She kept the whole thing a secret.. Had an apartment. was having an affair with a co-worker, Who I hear they later got married, Then I heard they broke up who knows. Its always very difficult around Holidays, I have grown to really despise them because I see how they effect my disabled Brother. She never sends him a card or a gift or anything. We take care of my Brother absolutely great, Whatever he needs we get him even if it means my father and I have to do without. Sorry For the Rant Guys.. Just a little depressed with Easter Coming up and everything. I enjoy posting and being on the computer at night so I can totally be alone ya know what I mean? Anyways the Idea of being a Doctor became just a pipe dream, A Pharmacy Technician would be great. You should ABSOLUTELY GO BACK TO SCHOOL AND BECOME A TEACHER, LIVE YOUR LIFE... THAT IS YOUR DREAM AND I THINK YOU SHOULD YOU SHOULD DEF. GO FOR IT! YOU GOT MY SUPPORT IF THAT MEANS ANYTHING. I WISH YOU THE BEST LUCK, SOUNDS LIKE YOU WOULD BE A GREAT TEACHER AND DON'T EVEN NEED ME WISHING YOU GOOD LUCK. BE SAFE AND GOD BLESS! YOUR FRIEND, LARRY

I wanted to be an engineer. I was very interested in how things worked and created. But later I found out I was terrible in math. Also I got more interested in business. So the idea of becoming engineer just slipped away from my head. I am happy that I did not go towards that direction. Engineering is too narrow as a major. It would have not allowed me to try something else.

hello, When I was a kid, I have a lot of things to do in life like being a teacher a doctor, and the worst is being a the president? ha ha sounds funny? right? but it is true i dreamed because that is a part of my childhood days. But now that I grown up i realize that I that is not really my field I mean that is not what I wanted to be?, complicated but now I am taking bachelor of science in information technology. far from my dreamed when I was a kid? but it is my footstep to become successful in life. good luck to you
