post #2 of 27
I really don't know. I was pretty sheltered and didn't have many hopes and dreams when I was a child.
I really didn't start to experience and learn about good things in life until I was about 13.

But off hand, I would have to say, a singer... I like to sing and I'm good at it (hey I said good, not great) lol. but I've never really followed up with that past singing chour in school.

when i was wee little i wanted to be a cashier, i'd unhook mom's phone and pretend like the receiver was one of those scanner things, and I'd get stuff around the house with bar codes and "Scan them" then sometimes I'd have to type in the usbn with the keys lol..

Oh yeah, and I also wanted to be an archiologist, a writer, a princess, a lawyer, a priest, a famous tennis player, a psychologist, a mechanic, a tv news anchor, a professional basketball player, a veternarian (sp?), and a fighter pilot. My parents pretty much let me think i could be whatever i wanted, even if it wasn't true (god bless them)..

I wanted to be a nurse. Mom was squeamish and I was the one who fixed up my brothers' boo-boos. When Mike broke his thumb, I was the one, who held his other hand, while it was being set. MOM stayed out in the waiting room.

Since I got married, so young, I never made nursing schol. I wound up training as a medical assistant and phlebotomist.

Tamara, my grandpa was a farmer with sheep. And chickens. I used to spend two weeks at the end of August each summer on his farm. I was the youngest of 13 grandkids, and the only one who LOVED the animals and the farm. I was out with him every day, from when he started at sun-up. I mucked out cages, stalls, helped sheer sheep, collect eggs, screen them, feed and water all the animals, weed the "kitchen" garden (over an acre!), etc.

I wanted to be a farmer's wife. Every once in a while I wanted to be a Vet, but mostly I wanted to be a farmer's wife.

...and I was brought up by very liberal parents, and I was brought up to believe I could be or do anything. But that's what I wanted.

...and I am a financial analyst. LOL!

(Jeanie - now I'm dreaming about that "cat farm!" for unwanted strays and ferals, which we would have spayed and neutered.... Maybe some day I will be a farmer's wife... just not quite the original farm I had in mind. )

I wanted to be a lawyer. I ended up being an EMT for awhile, and now am a professional body piercer, receptionist, hand holder, and most anything else that needs to be done at the tattoo shop. Except tattooing!
Sharral, being "just a housewife" was the hardest job I ever had. I hope you referring to yourself as that was not putting yourself down. The world was a much better place when there were more housewives.

I wanted to be a hairdresser, cause that's what my grandma was, and I wanted to be an aerobics instructor, cause that's what mom was. I also wanted to be a children's nurse cause I wanted to work with kids, but then I realized that those kids would be really sick and I don't think I could handle that. So I decided I wanted to be a grade school teacher but the qualifications were way out of my league (grade 12 Chemistry AND Physics???). Then, lost, I was volunteering with a retirement home through high school and somebody told me I could do that for a living, so I went with it, whoa was I surprised what was involved, wiping bums???!!! jeesh, but I stayed with it.

I wanted to be "the girl that sells the goldfish at the Petstore". When I was about 3 or 4, we went to buy goldfish and I just thought she had the coolest job, getting to catch the fishies and tell the owners which "cages" they'd like best.

Then I wanted to be "the girl that feeds the monkeys" after my first trip to the zoo.

Then I wanted to be a ventriliquist, but I quickly realized I didn't have that talent. I just thought the puppets were cool.

And now I want to be a nurse.

I really wanted to be a veterinarian. Well, that stopped when I worked at one for 3 years. In college, I had no idea what I wanted to do. In grad school, I wanted to be a forensic scientist. Now, I'm doing what really makes me happy-doing research in a hospital setting. It's wonderful to feel that what I do may make a big difference in someone's life down the road...

I wanted to be an Archeologist when I was really little, then I wanted to be a Vet. I went to college to study Equine Science. I got a BS in Equine Science and stopped there. I now work for my husband an Attorney I'm his flunky!

Actually I wanted to inherit lots of money when I grew up! It hasn't happened yet.

I wanted to be a teacher. Then I wanted to be a rock star, but I never did have the figure for it. I did become a teacher, but it wasn't for me. Now I'm a secretary.

Sherral, there is no such thing as "just a" housewife! That's the hardest job in the world!

I have always had big dreams of being so many different things...and I still have those dreams at times. I always wanted to be a cop (I find it ironic that my lil' bro is going to the Police Academy after he graduates in May). I always seemed to go in phazes...cops, a vet, a zoo keeper, a teacher, a singer and now I want to be a Pharmacist. Since I've been working at our local Pharmacy, I've really enjoyed it and am thinking about returning to school to become a Pharmacist. There is a huge need for those right now and money is awesome. Plus, if I agree to sign a contract with the company I work for they will help me pay for my tuition and still be able to work for them part time. But...I still dream of being all of those once in a while!

I always wanted to be a vet, but I could never bring myself to do it because I couldn't ever bring myself to put an animal to sleep. And god forbid if someone wasn't treating an animal the way they should! Holy moly would I lose customers! nope I couldn't be a vet, no matter how much I want to.
