Want to be when you was growning up and did it change when you got older.
I have wanted to help people my whole life and I still do but as I grow older all I want to do is be a family person work from home have two or three maybe even four kids, which I wanted when I was little I used to want six kids. And I guess I mainly want the kind of family I dreamed about when I was a kid but I do know family is the people you love not what everyone dreams it is.

Well I want to be a mom of atleast three kids and 3 or 4 cats and 2 dogs and a couple of horses and chickens and if I can ever buy back the part of my farm cows again one day. If nothing else I have enough room for a milk cow. And I want pigs and goats and maybe some ducks and geese. And to buy a bit of the surrounding farms and have a large working farm and a good husband and being able to be the little miss homemaker instead of the breadwinner. Just something I think I have always really wanted and I think one day God willing I will alteast get part of it. I alread have a start with Tavia, Lilly and my horses and chickens.

I wanted to be a zoologist. I would still love to do that- but there are no good schools for that field of study near me (and i don't wanna go out of state). So i'm planning on going to college and getting my dental degree- working for a while to save up some money, etc- and then opening up my own flower shop. I'm a lisenced florist- so i would LOVE my own shop someday.

Well first I wanted to work with dolphins and Orcas....But I am afraid of deep water so that wouldn't work LOL. Then I wanted to be a vet...and still wish I could but I can't handle all the stuff that goes with it. All I know is I want to work with animals.

Well for a long time I have wanted to be a nurse but I don't think I want it like I used to I think it was more of a thing that other people wanted me to do it and the low availibility of jobs around here. But the more I work in nursing homes the more I know that my heart isn't in it anymore and with being a nurse your heart has to be into it. So I am currently thinking about getting a buisness degree and have wanted to find out how hard it would be to get into marketing and real estate and maybe even design as well. But I want to stay here but there are several towns surrounding me that I could work at. I just think I am tired of the red tape that is involved in medicine and the fact that you feel like you are a politician because you got too many roosters in the hen house so to speak, in other words too many bosses. And too much sniping at one another.

When I was younger I wanted to be a cop. Then came the professional basketball player, then video game designer and various other jobs. Then when I really started to think about it, I wanted to be an animal trainer for movies. Now I want to be either a vet or a zoologist. As long as I'm surrounded by animals I'll be happy.

I wanted to be a petshop owner (when i was 6) then a sweetshop owner. Later I wanted to be an artist, then an inventor. I'll probably be an inventor of sorts as I'm going to study chemistry and then maybe go into pharmaceuticals or be a uni researcher. I hope

When I was younger I wanted to be Superman seriously. Thats all I ever wanted to be until I was around 13 and realised that I was from earth and not another planet like my sisters told me I was. Then after that I wanted to be a Policeman. But then I realised you might have to shoot someone. I became a Carpet layer. As far as kids I always wanted alot. Amber wants 4. So I guess that is enough for me.

I wanted to be a vet. Then I realized that I'm really bad when it comes to blood and emergencies so fell into a job in information technology. It pays the bills and now I only tend cats and dogs in my own home!!

That's cute!

When I was a kid (age 5) I wanted to be an archaeologist then I started watching Matlock LOL and from age 7 until second semester of grade 12 I wanted to be a Lawyer in the worst way and then I started working in an English as a Second Language classroom teaching math and english and I applied to get into education and I'm a semester away from half way to being a teacher! I realized my calling and I know that's where I'll be for the rest of my life (in one way or another).
