What did you want to be while you were growing up? I wanted to be a police officer, and am currently working on it. But now, I am also planning on going to college to get a job in the computer field. Stuck between the two. What about you?

When I was growing up I wanted to be a teacher,but that was back then when i did not know any better,Now after all these years I am in my second year of college and my major is Accounting.I have always has a thing for numbers.college is very hard,but i am a trooper and I am very determined.the first year I thought that I was going to go crazy,I had full time classes and did not have good study habits.I still have full time classes but I know how to manage my family life along with my class studies.I plan to stick with this no matter what,plus I was very proud of myself at the end of this semester,my grades were great.I am glad that I did not give up.

I was going to be a lawyer or a doctor. But instead I decided I wanted to be a mother. That was one of my dreams and I realized the dream. It happened almost 43 years ago and is my proudest accomplishment. That and 5 grandchildren and 1 great grandson. How sweet it is.

when i was young i remember i wanted to be a dentist. then i switched to being a doctor. i had that vision while i was growing up. i was determined to be a doctor. unfortunately i can't pursue that dream due to financial problems. i am currently taking up an engineering course. i am happy with it. but i still want to be a doctor.

when I was younger, I thought I wanted to be either a lawyer or own my own interior design business...once I got older and found out just how many years you have to go to school for law, I guess I kind of pitched that idea out..lol..back then, I thought it was all about argueing or debating to make the point and win the case..but I learned it was way more than that..
