    Some sort of planetary scientist or NASA engineer type of job. (It hasn't changed that much, I've always gone for science and engineering type stuff, just different kinds.)

    in order of how my mind changed:
    astronaut
    aerospace engineer
    mathmatician
    computer programmer
    astrophisicist (this last one does not count if this is only for under 18)
    Dreams are best served manifest and tangible.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    Someone who drew things and made money off it.
    And then a palentologist after watching Jurassic Park hundreds of times.
    And then a veterinarian.
    And then back to bascially an artist, because I didn't really want to deal with people crying about their animals and asking me hundreds of questions.

    -- I wanted to be the person that made sound effects for animated tv shows or movies (I saw some "how it's done" segment about this while watching Nickelodeon one day and I thought it was pretty awesome)
    -- A dog trainer
    -- During high school I thought about joining the Marine Corps (how typical ISTJ is that?)...but that wore off pretty quickly
    -- Then I finally landed on school teacher

    From when I was old enough to page through the sky atlas, I always wanted to be an astronaut. I went so far as to go a good way through the application process for the Naval Academy. I also briefly toyed with being a cartoonist.

    It started to change a little after I saw Raiders Of The Lost Ark when I was 11 years old. For reasons that belong in another post, that movie made me want to make movies. Filmmaker and astronaut seem like divergent paths, but the decision wasn't made until I chose a college.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
