I wanted to be an astronomer. That was my primary childhood love.

I wonder who here actually became what their childhood self wanted to be.
5-15 years old: firefighter, zoologist, veterinarian, paleontologist, a horse (Arabian or Thoroughbred. Sometimes Lipizzaner or Hanoverian), artist, architect, doctor (OB-GYN or neurosurgeon), writer, fashion-designer, pro-lacrosse player, psychologist/counselor, and probably a crapload of other random careers.
16-23 years old: politician, hair-dresser, writer, architect, interior designer, university professor, business owner, lawyer, consultant.

Reason: forgot one!
It's so funny to think back on it now. I never had any dreams of future professions or such when growing up, nothing concrete anyway. All I knew (and that has only solidified as the time passes) was that I'd rather not work at all...
...and I haven't grown up either. Probably never will..
