    Sounds familar. I even had my share of teachers tell me that. Should we ever discover something, save the clippings. I've got a fun idea for a binder.

    When I was very young, I wanted to be an artist. Somehow that changed into teacher at some point. I also was intrigued by archaeology, and had it been an available major at the college I graduated from, it's quite likely I would have gotten a degree in it.

    Paleonotologist, as a kid I was obsessed with dinosaurs, fossils, bugs, you name it. I used to be able to name numerous species by their scientific name.

    when you learn to read on dinosaur books phonics becomes your bitch. After you can dance around Archaeopteryx what else is there? antidisestablishmentarianism? C'mon son!

    The only reason I had dreams regarding "what are you going to be when you grow up" was that we were asked that question, by adults and by each other, and it was the thing to do to have an answer for that.

    So I thought about it, and I decided that it came to either one of two things. What those things were hardly matters, though.

    Both seemed too unrealistic to pursue. I did end up pursuing one of those routes later, as an adult, but it sucked.

    I think "what are you going to be when you grow up" was the wrong question. First of all, I didn't know that many options. Secondly, I didn't know a thing about any of them, what they were like, what they involved, or anything other than the surface impressions I had and romanticism about them as ideas.

    Better prompts would have involved shorter-term goals that involved almost immediate action. This would have given multiple opportunities to explore different interests through action, rather than through a detached imagination only.

    I was very caught up in fantasy as a child. I used to think I would be able to fly one day, and that other worldly beings would take me on an adventure. My daydreaming (which got me into not a little trouble at primary school) was mostly occupied by thoughts of wonderful distant worlds. I didn't spend too much time occupied with what job I would have although I did a fair amount of street theatre/offbeat fringe theatre which eventually brought me round to wanting to pursue a career in acting.
