When I was young, I used to play drive-thru with my folks ("Welcome to McDonalds, may I take your order?" and so forth). That is about when I decided that I wanted to work at McDonald's when I grew up. And I eventually got that wish...unfortunately...
I think after my drive-thru games, I wanted to be a cop, because I loved to play cops and robbers and I also obsessively watched cop movies and family-oriented cop shows such as The Commish. I used to make up my own mind movies of cops and robbers and so forth.
Then I got interested in movies themselves. Interested in special effects, writing, and directing.
I think about when the MS-DOS game Disney's Coaster came out, I started getting into roller coasters. When Roller Coaster Tycoon came out, I became obsessed. I wanted to be a roller coaster designer. Unfortunately, I am not the brightest math student, so roller coaster designing is a little out of my league. I still design them on No Limits, occasionally, though.
Then I got back into films again. I wanted to be a film director and screenwriter. Naturally, SJ family members dismissed my dreams for being unrealistic -- that's so typical for an SJ to dash your hopes.
Currently, my interests (related to desired occupations) fluctuate between movies and roller coasters. I'm also into art and design (architecture, fashion design, concept artist, etc.), but I can't afford to go to art school.
So, let's review:
- McDonald's employee (because I was an idiot)
- Police officer (because I liked playing Cops and Robbers)
- Roller coaster designer
- Filmmaker (again)
- Writer (fiction)
- Fashion designer
- Concept artist
- And now I have no aim...
