i'm a natural artist, whenever i have a pen, pencil, or anything that would write, the first thing i would do is to draw.. i know what i really want to pursue in college, to be a fine arts students major in comic arts or painting, it doesn't matter, as long as im in the field, i can be flexible, because its still colors and pens im goung to deal with.. but my father choose the course for me, believing that there's no money in art, and as i respect him i accept the course he picked for me, Architecture.. i've finished the course, and i've enjoyed it too, especially when im in a cosntruction site, seeing my drawings came into reality.. its not what i pursue but still i've enjoyed it.. and im still practicing my first love, im a graphic artist/animator of a kiddie show...so, i think its better than pursuing just one career, because in adding another, you'll know your flexibility in work, and still having your enjoyment (graphic arts) while pursuing your work (architecture).. that's it!

Sometimes we are faced with trials to test how far we would pursue our passion. i'm glad in the end you were able to continue what you loved doing. Computer engineering was a wild card decision of mine and now i'm loving what i do and it also open doors and talents that i didn't know i had in me. God bless ~Scaflone~

No. My childhood dream was to become a teacher. But it changed when I was in high school because of our subject in Entrepreneurship. I want to become a businessman instead. But it is still evasive for me because my course in college is not business related. But I am planning to pursue it after college.

It's really nice how our life doesn't come out how we planned it to be but in a ways things fall in to place. Making a bigger image than a small piece we wanted to place but God has a bigger piece he wants to place for us. Good Luck with your career. God Bless ~Scaflone~

just like you scaflone i had also first choice when i was a child, not only first but many choices just like i want to be doctor, and then it came up i want to be a lawyer someday. But then when i reached elementary when my cousin introduced us with my brother about the internet and games, i was addicted by it until i grow up. By that, i said to myself that im going to take a course which is related to a computer. Now, im a BS IT student. =)

hehee same here too..when i was at the end of my High School life. I was thinking what subject i was good at and what really interests me. So math + computer resulted to me becoming a Computer Engineer. But everything happens for a purpose. "there are no accidents" ~Kung fu panda~ ~take care~ scaflone

At my school days i had 2 options, either an animator or a soldier. now i am in my final year automobile engineering. i had not given up the ambition of becoming a soldier till my first year of engineering. i attended am interview also for getting into the army. but i was rejected at the last stage of interview. so after that i understood i am not fit for the army. Now i am only concentrating in my studies and to get a good job in my industry ie automobile industry.
