    I wanted to be a writer. I loved reading, and for awhile, I totally ignored subjects like Math, barely getting by. Somehow, later, I decided to get a degree in math. I think it was the realization that most great writers don't have degrees; they just luck up and find an idea that resonates with people. My writing was sci-fi, and I didn't forsee any major ideas to flesh out. I went with what was easy for me and lucrative; writing failed the latter.

    I wanted to be an inventor, a soccer player for a brief moment following the 1999 world cup, and then a lawyer

    I wanted to be a wizard or a witch. I spent hours taking a stick and stirring cow plop adding in bits of leaves and grass and calling it bat wings or newt sweat.

    When I was ten I was asked why I'd like to be when I grow up and I confidently said, "I'd like to ( a madam in a brothel.". I didn't know what it meant but it sounded important.

    I wanted to be a comedian. To a certain extent I guess I am, just not for a living.

    I don't think I've ever had a dream job. My childhood aspirations, whenever people asked, were very prosaic in the doctor/vet/astronomer/writer mold, as far as I remember, anyway. I wanted to be an ethologist (after watching a lot of National Geographic) and a theoretical physicist when I first started learning about atoms and strong forces and stuff like that from popular science books ... but realized that I didn't actually like doing science in school and wouldn't do well if I stuck it out.

    The idea of work fulfilling my deepest aspirations has never really made much sense to me, to be honest. It's enough for me to be really good at what I do, not feel guilty about what I do and make a comfortable living from what I do. My personhood and the expression of it lie in other realms.

    A scribe that could mix potions. Basically a wizard or magician.

    Sayrah blew life into the spheres and they moved. From her wheel she weaved the names of people in to mystery.

    I did want to be an Aes Sedai after reading the Wheel of Time books. THE MOST POWERFUL ONE EVER. Does that count? I even practiced the flame and the void/blooming flower in the river meditation stuff. It never worked.

    I wanted to solve the deepest mysteries of the universe, unify the forces and bring about a golden age of being for all which exists.

    I haven't given up.

    From preschool age: Fashion designer
    From age 7 or 8: Flight Attendant
    From age 10 or 11: Musician & Painter
    From age 19: Coffee shop owner
    From age 21: Gardener & P√Ętissier, and this dream will stay.

    Over the years, my dream jobs did change, yet I notice that I enjoy creating something with my hands and can do that for the rest of my life.

    I'm not doing what I want to do now, but I haven't given up on my dream.

    A wizard nothing much has changed. Although I realise I will have to live this dream in the context of a business of some kind and probably fiction writing. It still drives me though and this year I will start the business side of things with the purchase of a small acreage.
