Do you have the job or profession that you dreamt about as a child?

Did you fulfill your dreams of becoming what you wanted to? Most kids say 'I want to be a police man or a firefighter or an astronaut, ect...' Have you found yourself doing what you said you were going to do ?

Yes, I want to be a pilot, that was I used to say when I was a kid. My dreams change as I am getting older. Only one do not change and that is 'I want to live a good life'. To this day, I live a good life and in the comming future I still want to live a good life.

I believe I wanted to be a bus driver when I was very little. I got over that. In high school I wanted to be a journalist, and then an FBI agent. Neither of those. In college I wanted to join the Air Reserves, or be a lawyer. Neither of those. I also dreamt my whole life of the day I would get to be a mommy. I have that one, and its wonderful.

Not really. When I was a kid I always said I wanted to be a teacher or a singer and I'm neither. But, I always used to say I wanted to be a mommy and, gladly, I am! :)

Actually, I wanted to be a schoolteacher at first and then I wanted to be a nurse. I started out in college taking up nursing and failed. I ended up in web design and loved it. I never even thought about doing that.

I wanted to be a lawyer. I am not a lawyer, but I am going to school right now and maybe, if I ever get the money and time, I could go for my juris doctorate. Chances are it won't be for a long time, but my family and friends tell me on a regular basis I would make a great lawyer. So maybe one day!

No, I wanted to be so many things when I was a kid. I wanted to be a teacher (haven't we all) then I wanted to be a chemist. Since I was about 14 years old I wanted to be a computer programmer, but once I started college I decided to be a game programmer. Now I am taking a break from college, but I am working on reaching that degree!
