    Default What was your dream job when you were a child?

    What was your dream job when you were a child? I used to change my mind every year. At first I wanted to become a magician, later I wanted to become a comic book artist, the other a writer, next year I wanted to become a spy and the other year I wanted to be a fighter pilot. From 13 till 16 years old I wanted to become either a detective or any kind of problem solver. From 16 onwards I started to see things from a more realistic point of view. How about you? What were you dream jobs?

    When I was a small child I wanted to become a clockmaker. Then as a child I wanted to become a doctor. In elementary school I wanted to become a banker because I thought they are the most powerful people in the world (lol). At 11 I began to write poetry and prose and wanted to be a writer. At 14 I got obsessed with becoming a movie director and a scenarist. At 16 I wanted to become a problem-solver - it didn't even matter if it was a special agent or a private investigator or Dr.House , I needed to solve problems. I have chosen my path now (a more realistic one) but I would change it in a heartbeat.

    edit: oh is this just for NTs? whoops.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    No worries. After all, this is not a totalitarian post (if that kind of posts ever existed).

    As if I could have ever settled for any one thing.

    I'm 30-something now and I still change my mind every single year.

    fashion designer but i wasn't really a child when thought of it. went into a different type of design that didn't require dealing with such a ridiculously dysfunctional industry.

    oh wait, when i saw 'chorus line' on broadway i remember thinking being a dancer/singer would be awesome. lead singer in a band would be totally fun. i'm way too old for that now but still think it'd be incredibly fun.

    Until I was around 14 I wanted to be an astronaut. I was devastated to find my country does not spend billions on shooting ballistic coffins into nothingness, although now I am quite relieved.

    After that I wanted to become a doctor, I was in high school at the time. I am unsure where the desire came from, I wanted to be an integral part of a local rural community, renowned and respected, treating clients to the best of my ability. It would be something a little different each day. I did not realise, however, that this was synonymous with looking at growths on 90 year old men's feet.

    Fortunately in recent years I gained the ambition to become a Total Fuckin' Loser, which seems much more of a realistic target, considering I have dropped or been kicked out of three schools and two universities.
