I dreamt of of being a technician. I kind of got there im an Engineer. As a kid what did you dream of doing as a career compared to what you actually do now as adult.

I wanted to be a dinosaur (age four), now I'm a human reading threads about folks who thought we lived with dinosaurs... IF only.


Not much of a job market for Dinosaurs these days.

I wanted to be a garbage man, hanging onto the back of the garbage truck.

I dreamed big, unfortunately most of them don't come true.

I wanted to be either a construction worker or an astronaut. However, I became a computer programmer.

i just wanted to be free to do what i wanted.
i woke up one day at the tender age of 12,and realized that the life that was manufactured for me
was nothing but a big bucket of crap,filled with unachievable goals,and unrealistic expectations.
i am still on my path of living free,armed with the truth about this make believe reality.
depression isn't a syndrome,its a tool!
depressed people are more in touch with reality

I didnt dream I'd be grown up...so I never gave it much thought nor did I dream about it. I didn't think I'd live that long truthfully.

I can't remember dreaming of being anything. I mean, I considered various careers and how I would like them, but I never really took to anything. I used to tell people that I wanted to be a 'doctor' or 'lawyer' or 'teacher' - basically, just vague things so that they'd leave me alone about it. Mostly, I just wanted to be outside working with plants and animals, or reading or writing or singing or drawing. I have never been able to narrow down "what I want to do". So, I just do whatever I feel like I should do.

So far, I've been a plant geneticist, a caregiver, a psychiatric nurse, website consultant, and am currently a web developer and also have a small creative business (art, craftwork, textiles) on the side that I work on in my spare time when I'm not working in my multiple gardens. My ultimate goal is to be a farmer so that I can work at home all the time, so this is what I am saving my money for.

For someone who just kind of floats through life, I feel like I've accomplished a lot.


Mostly, though, I just want to be happy and confident when I grow up. I think I'm getting close to that, though I'm not sure I'll ever actually grow up. I'm too dorky for that.

You can still do it. Just start building a portfolio of natural work - landscapes, people who are not posed, inner workings of machinery, etc. You can make a name for yourself aside from the humdrum portraits. Definitely look into submitting photos to all types of magazines. I really think that you could work your way up to National Geographic if you put your mind to it.

Left alone.

Even my parents relate to me that is all I ever asked for or wanted from when I could crawl. Always going off away from others to do what I wanted to do.

Shame it'll never happen. "Society" isnt structured in a way that permits people to be left alone. Sooner or later men with guns come looking to take what you have and order you to behave a certain way. At which point your choices are reduced to prison or death.

Hands down.....ballerina.....no scheiss....I mean, of all the cliche jobs for a little girl to dream of, yes.....it was my dream, my life, my passion, my every waking moment, it was not some willy nilly twirl in a tutu pretty princess little girl nonsense... I envisioned myself as an adult, I wanted to be athletic, strong, graceful, like the women i saw in the ballet books i'd check out in the library......it was what first inspired me to love all things russian, it was so much more to me than getting up on a stage an performing for people, it was me expressing my true nature.

I begged consistently for lessons from the age of four up until 12...nothing mattered to me more....

But paying that monthly ballet school fee and being "inconvenienced" to drive me to lessons certainly mattered to my parents more.

End of story on that one.
