So what did you first want to be when you were growing up?

I wanted to be a forest ranger... drive my Jeep Wrangler through the woods all day with my retriever in the back.

You?

i always wanted to work for the CIA, wanted to see how shit went down and be part of it too. then i stopped giving a fuck about school. im in college now studying government but i have a feeling i wont be making it into the CIA. its all good though, state government should be cool still. CIA would be so sick though.

Actually the title was directed at that old commercial...

No one ever says...
"I want to be an addict when i grow up"

and i went the Chemistry route becuase it came easy to me and it is easy as hell to get a job.

For as long as I can remember I wanted to be a movie director or producer. Looking at stats in 8th and 9th grade I decided it was too much of a long shot. I didn't have another plan until college, I decided to hop into creative writing when I couldn't find an art school (I am the writing side of the comics I do with a friend). That way I could still be in the entertainment industry and journalism may be fun.

When I was looking for a writing school online I stumbled on web design, something I always had a mild interest in largely because it's a job that has a lot of potential of working from home. So I signed up and now I work in web design and Flash design. I am hoping to work on Movie sites so I'm still connected to the industry, otherwise I'll work from home in my home theatre and just watch a lot of movies :D

I ended up in the Technology field much the same way many here did.. I learned it as a hobby, I'm a gamer, etc, and I enjoyed it, it just turned into a career because it was something that I really understood and had a nack for.

I wanted to be an astronomer until I was about 6 years old. Then I thought I would go the engineering route. I got an AA degree as an automotive tech and was planning on pursuing an engineering career. However, I quickly learned I hated working on peoples cars. So, I started taking other classes and I became really interested in biology and chemistry and decided to pursue medicine.

In 3 weeks I'm graduating as a Registered Nurse, now I'm considering taking more classes and applying to med school.
