when i was a kid, my ambition was to be a cashier! LOL. weird right? i wanted to be a cashier so bad that i begged my parents to buy me a cash register (the toy one, not the real thing of course). i used to play with it all the time. the reason why i wanted to be a cashier is because cashiers have a lot of money. at that time i didn't know that the money wasn't really the cashier's money..haha. but, my ambition didn't came true. well, what is your ambition when you were a kid? why did you choose it as your ambition? does your ambition did come true?

my ambition in childhood was to be a hot shot model. Aishwarya Rai was my role model, now that I've grown up I've realized there are better jobs out there and Aishwraya is fat now! Lol.

there are many job options out there. you just have to find the right one that you really interested in. and as for Aishwarya Rai, i do think that she is still pretty even now :)

Hello luvmusic What a cute story about wanting to be a cashier! I can remember thinking things like this as well. My ambition as a child was simply to get through a day unnoticed.

I was terribly terribly shy. I tried to get through life without drawing any attention.

When I was a kid, I dreamed to be a sewer/dress maker. I used to collect leftover cloths and make dresses for my doll. But as time passed and for some reasons, I was not able to pursue this kind of career. Instead, I become a government employee. I still love to sew but I just do it as some form of a hobby.

eventhough you did not become a tailor, i think it's great that you didn't give up on things that you love. who knows maybe one day your childhood dream will come true.

haha, children's ideas are usually simple. When I was a child, I have a lot of ambitions, to be a teacher when I was in class, to be a singer when I watch a party, to be a cashier when I go to the bank, to be a driver when I take a bus...... and now I will be a teacher, and maybe one dream comes true.

When I was a kid I wanted to be a pilot lol I think their uniform is cool and to be a female pilot sounded really amazing for 8 years old girl. seeing the earth from the sky is really cool, I wanted to be a pilot to fly in the sky just like a bird. But the dream has vanished, well to be a pilot is very expensive and then I have minus eyes, a pilot or stewardess are not allowed to wear eyeglasses they must have perfect eyesight. Nowadays my ambition is to own a boutique or art gallery, Im working to make my dream comes true though I still admire pilot and their uniform

When I was young,my was to run a supermarket in the future.Since I was always asking my mother to buy the biscuit for me while passing the store,my mom turned to me.So I decided to run one myself when I grew up,and I can eat anything I like freely.

when I was a little kid, I always say that I will become a doctor someday when I am being asked. But as I grew older, I realize that I was afraid of blood and I don't want to be in the Hospital all day, so now I am a Computer Science graduate hehehe... At least I got to enjoy what I am doing and I enjoy technologies and computers

Sssshhhh... just between the two of us, luvmusic. My ambition when I was a child was to become a laborer sporting huge biceps and muscular torso. I imagine sweating myself out as I carry a heavy load on my shoulder. When I was in my teens, I wanted to become a male stripteaser also with muscular body and angelic face gyrating before an adoring audience. Funny, these dreams really stayed as they are.

I;ve got a very odd ambition too when I was a kid. I wanted to be a fish or meat vendor in the wet market coz I am amazed seeing how they would open the plastic bag to put the meat or fish inside. And how these vendors don;t use a calculator instead writing down the costs of things you both on the wooden chopping board. I am fascinated with how they slice the meat, clean the fishes and cut it in pieces. Their movements seems so soft and easy.

that is kinda odd..haha. i never heard of anyone that wanted to be a fish or meat vendor when they were a kid. you are probably the first person that said that. but you know what, kids always get amazed with the people surrounding them and the amazing things always attracts them the most.

When i was a kid i've wanted to be a secret agent. Lol. I think i was influenced by the movies i watched before. Especially i love their suits. Haha. I really admire their awesome moves even until i still want to be an agent but i don't think there's such thing like that in movies. Haha. Wherein they use some weapons that are very beyond our imaginations. Hahaha.

I had so many things I want to become when I was a kid. My first ambition was to become a teacher. Then at some point in my childhood I wanted to become an astronomer.

Oh, you are like my niece.. she said she wanted to just have a mini store of her own in front of their house. =) ha ha kids really do have simple thinking and they just are not so into the things and the dreams many adults have. As a kid, i know that all i want was to manage the business my parents had - i had imagined it growing big and we would have huge offices, not only the factory that we have and a table to count all the salaries of the employees. Maybe i got into thinking about how i wanted an office with air conditioning because our factory was hot back in the days and well i thought there should be air conditioning so i would love to be here! haha So far, it did not happen, my parents sold the company and well they retired from it even before we had the chance to know how to take care of the business.

hahaha...really? well like you said, kids do have simple thinking. but as we grew up, we started to think more critically. but you did have a great ambition which is to continue the family business. eventhough it didn't came true i know there are still a lot of opportunities for you out there or you yourself can create your own business just like your parents did.

you should be proud of yourself cause you have a plan for your future which is a good one too. not everyone had a plan for themselves and they ended up doing whatever their family asked them to do eventhough they're not happy with it. anyway, wish you all the best in your life.
