View Full Version : Grown ups.

What do you want to be when you "grow up"? If you've already "grown up", what did you want to be? Did you fulfill your ambitions?

I remember I wanted to be an actress when I was younger...Now I'm at Uni in my final year of Animation. It's kinda the same thing. I'm just acting with my pencils ^^

Whenever someone asks me that, I usually say "I want to be your boss."

Probably something in the film industry. It's one of the few things that are almost enjoyable to me.

I want to be a real boy.

Well my earliest recollection isthat I never wanted to. To an extent I still don't, but I would like to be a novelist.

I'm pretty big and old as it is, and at the moment am not fulfilling any dreams to speak of.

What do you wanna be little pg?
little pg: I want to be a fireman!

A creative writer and essayist that resides in New Zealand. I shall own a vineyard and a Maine Coon.

This will occur in around seven years time.

A published novelist would be incredibly awesome. Given that the chances of being able to live off my writing aren't strong enough to bank on it, I'm searching for a profession to put food on the table.

That's like sixth grade and beyond. Before then, I was determined to become an architect. What can I say? I liked Legos.

11-15-2007, 04:07 AM
I wanted to be an architect too when i was younger. Then i discovered music and my aim became (and remains) to make money playing music. So far i have made about 70 this way so ive suceeded :D

Once I said that I wanted to be on fire.:bigsmile:

I also wanted to be a vet. Now I am studying Environmental Biology.

11-15-2007, 04:37 AM
I wanted to be a doctor because that's what my parents wanted me to be ^_^

Now? Hell no.

I hate grown-ups. I never want to be one.

When I was a sprog I wanted to be a guitarist in a band. Achieved that but we where :skull::skull::skull::skull:e.

I'm going to university at the minute and when I've got my degree I'll probably still be working on the minimum wage.

I wanted to be a vet. I'd still like that job, but instead I'm on a Health and Social Care course to go into being a social worker. :jess:

I wanted to be a pilot in the airforce...but a combination of height, health problems and crappy qualifications from said bad health made this dream impossible.

Now I'm just trying to find a job.

11-15-2007, 02:49 PM
I wanted to help people around the world that really needed it. I wanted to train to be a doctor or a nurse so I could travel to the poor countries in the world and make a difference. Sadly I couldn't get my dream and I think I'm too emtional for a job like that. I turned towards computers instead.

11-15-2007, 03:07 PM
I wanted to be a nurse, did 5 years of health and social care at college and started my nurses training then changed my mind! Then i wanted to be a primary school teacher, got a job as a teaching assistant and realised that 5-6 year olds really asnnoy me, especially when im not trained in restraint and i get a kid biting me and kicking me and i cant do nothing about it!

Im now a rail co-ordinator on the railway! Slight change but im happy, im the boss of 80 men so i get to tell them what to do!!

Why would I want to grow up?

I want to join the army when im older.

11-18-2007, 07:54 PM
I wanted to be a vet (doesnt every little kid these days), a cadet in the army, a police woman, a roller coaster tester and a games taster. It was always different.

Now, I'm not so sure. I might look into being an English teacher, either that or something like a social worker going off the subjects I enjoy.

I have a Class A Commercial Driver's License right now.
I drive for a contract carrier company (In the state of Texas only)
Someday I want to have my very own 18 wheeler and go independent and do my own carrier jobs. All I need now at this moment is Hazardous Materials & Tanker endorsement.

Lowl, I remember when I wanted to be a clown, and a paleontologist too.

Now I want to be a Zoologist/wildlife vet researcher. Yerh, hard to explain xD

Music Teacher/Photography would be ideal.

Why on earth did I think that you'll say this very sentence... Well, if you'll become that, I guess I'll have to sing la marseillaise and praise the resistance.

I always wanted to be an Astronaut/Astronomer. I've taken a few courses on it that intrigued me, but my career seems like it's going to take another route.

11-20-2007, 09:06 PM
um, when i was little, i kinda wanted to be a doctor, then a lawyer. then, being the little gaming nerd that i was, i was introduced into the wonderful world of tomb raider XD i wanted to be just like her, so i read a bunch of books on egypt when i was like 10 (cuz i knew by then my dream of being sailor moon was unreachable by this point :P) and i read about italy and russia and other such places. i also enjoy reading about myths and stories and such, so that was a plus. but i grew up. im good with languages and computers, so im thinking of integrating the 2 or something like that.

and something ive always wanted to do.....fly! *swoons* oh how i would love to fly. i would lay in my back yard and stare at the sky and wish i was up there. i used to secretly hope that the wind would be so strong that it would carry me with it. but, now that im older, my idea of toys have changed. instead of pretending to fly w/ barbies and kites (tie them together lol >.<) , i play with planes. so i am achieving my dreams. and over the summer i went to the hills of kentucky w/ me hubbie and shot some guns and stuff, so i felt a little like lara croft i guess. :P

11-20-2007, 09:36 PM
I don't wanna grow up! I'm a Toys 'R' Us kid!

11-20-2007, 09:41 PM
I have no ambition at all. I'm too lazy to have grown-up thoughts. I'll just be an ewok breeder or something.

11-20-2007, 10:25 PM
I want to be a party girl, only not the kind that comes home drunk every night. Just one that goes out several times a week and has a social life. I don't have any expectations for myself. Only happiness.

11-20-2007, 10:28 PM
I'm in nursing school.

11-21-2007, 06:47 AM
Currently, computer programming. I used to want to be a writer. All I get from my parents is trash about it. I haven't achieved a degree for either one, but I do find myself indulging in them.
