As a child I always wanted to be a engineer but life took some major turns and I could not join engineering. However now I am a financial analyst and a partime gardener, teaching kids . How about you?

I am not a hardworker...nor lazy.. my interest was in drawings....I drew many pictures and paintings...love to read comics..lot..Tintin was my favorite at time..but my parents were bothered on my studies... they gave extra coaching through tuition classes.. somehow I managed to pass my 10th actually it is a wonder for me even now..as. a miracle happened..later i joined in college..I do not like maths I took arts...hardly went to any class expect the first two month in college... the rest my parents to office..I got up arount 10:30 .. go college ...just roam there and then to movies... then to other places where I am not gone...evening I will be at home...I love travelling...that time....there is lot more....no more longing ...I myself feeling bored...now I am a Central government employee... near to my home...doing statistical analysis on agriculture.

@SHAMRACK Central government employee sounds nice and agriculture even more interesting. I like growing plants and vegetables for my own use. Not every one is born to be a engineer or doctor else this world would not survive. World needs people like us also :)
