    At some point of our lives we are asked the question "what do you want to be when you grow up?", and some of us know for sure what we want to be and do go on to be that.

    But for the rest of us, we usually don't end up becoming what we say we wanted to be; either we just moved on to something else, or it just didn't work out the way we wanted.

    So my question is are you doing what wanted to do when you were a kid; and if not, would you still want to do it?

    I wanted to become something more despised than a child molester or the singing abilities of Roseanne Barr....I dreamed of being a piece of scum called an internet spammer....and joy of joys, it happened....I was annointed with a dip in the cesspool of cesspools and became a piece of crap myself.........

    No. I wanted to be a train. Now I have the best job in the world, being a Media Monitor.

    I don't remember ever picking a career I wanted as a kid. I remember playing teacher, superheroine, tea miss, and so forth but I don't think I ever actually said "I want to be a super hero when I grow up" (or anything else for that matter). I never felt the drive to really push to be a musician or gymnast or anything of that nature either. So, I'm actually doing better than I ever imagined for myself. :woot:

    I don't remember either what I wanted to be as a kid. And now that I'm 28 years old, I still don't know what I want to be.

    In Elementary school I wanted to play for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    In high school it was a toss up between comic book artist and chef. I went to cooking school and was accepted to Johnson and Wales in Boston to be a chef, but I bailed on it. My art was decent, but no where near good enough to be a comic book artist.

    In the end I am a Infrastructure Analyst for the Hershey Company.

    Nathan, if you've got nothing tying you down, you should tour the country picking up temp jobs in each city to pay the rent, visit any famous sites and get the bus fare to take you to the next one.

    Oh, you shouldn't be sad to be tied down. Sometimes it can be quite fun to be tied down. You just need to find the excitement in the situation. If you are still searching for a career, check the want ads and see what the most advertisements for the money you want to make are for.

    When I was just a little boy, I asked my mother what will I be? Will I be pretty? Will I be rich? Here's what she said to me:

    Que sera sera!
    Whatever will be, will be!

    In first grade I remember saying the default answer because I couldn't think of anything at the moment...a firefighter.

    I always loved music and wanted to do that or cook or be a lawyer. Luckily I didn't have to go to school to pursue djing so I went with that. Worked out pretty well so far. Now I'd like to go back to school for music production and mastering/mixing down.

    When I was little...I dreamed of being a dinosaur hunter like my father before me and his father before him....and I did. But I became too good at my chosen profession...and eventually the big guys were gone. I apologize oh great lizards.....I apologize......

    As a kid I wanted to be a DJ (turntablist as they say now) because I thought it looked so cool and it was always in the back of my mind as I got older.

    Then a few years ago I read about what skill it took to be a DJ and how much money it would cost and I said "nevermind".
