I once wanted to be a scientist or a space traveller (star trek style) but unfortunately space travel isn't that cool just yet. I also thought about being an architect, but didn't follow that up because it wasn't as artistic as I would've liked and needed a minimum 5 years of uni. And now, I want to be any of: Multimedia developer, game developer or a computer programmer, cause they'd all be fairly cool.

Dealt with the death of two of them, one dressed as a raccoon, and the other a lamb. The wolf had a part in it.

When I was little I wanted to be:
A star
An artist
A cowgirl

Then I got into the stage of "let's do everything my sister does!" and wanted to be a doctor.
(She is, coincidentally, going to med school in the fall.)

Then:
An author
A teacher (until I realized I *hate* teaching)
A guitarist/vocalist in a rock band
A studio owner/producer

Now:
An author/poet
An oboist in an indie band/symphony (just for a couple of years...)
A journalist

Man...I haven't got any more realistic.

I don't remember what I wanted to be when I was 5.

I do know for the most part of my childhood I wanted to be a teacher. I even pretended to have my own class out on the balcony of our apartment. I'd instruct the class on some of the things I learned in class, or whatever I wanted to instruct. I'd pretend one or two of the kids were troublemakers and I'd have to make them do lines or run laps in the "yard" behind our building.

Later on I wanted to be a U.S. History teacher. I think I probably would have still done so had I actually saved up for college, or if my parents had done so. If I had made good enough grades to qualify for the HOPE, I probably would be student teaching right now...

First I wanted to be a writer. I wanted to go to the same college as the author of the Baby-Sitter's Club books and write a series as... er... "good" as that. Then I found out she went to an all-girls' college and that I couldn't write fiction. So I wanted to be a journalist. Then I found out they have way too many deadlines. So I wanted to be an editor, and just read all the time. But I decided that would be too boring and I'm not good at editing people's stuff.

So when I came to college, I wanted to be a teacher. Switched out of that major after a year and a half because I hated the major here and decided I wasn't a big enough fan of teaching kids to actually dedicate everything to it. So now I'm a psych major, Italian/education double minor. I don't know what I'll end up doing, but I'm hoping it'll be something like doing Teach for America for a couple of years, then going to grad school, and then becoming a research psychologist and/or professor. Or working for a non-profit and throwing away my college degree :)

Oh, and throughout all this I've always had a secret ambition to be a meteorologist.

I wanted to be an architect first.
Then an inventor.
The I found out that inventors are called engineers.
So I'm an engineer.

What I do isn't really engineering, but it is done by engineers.

I think my dream job right now would be something like quality engineering in a candy factory. It kind of blows my mind how realistic that goal actually is.

When I was a teenager, at one time I wanted to be a writer. Mainly horror. I wanted to be the next Stephen King. I had read "Misery" in 8th grade, and read "IT" and "Salem's Lot" in 9th grade. At the beginning of 8th grade, I had already written my own collection of short stories all based in the town I lived in, taking place at locations I had been to, lived near, or else just heard of and had to imagine. I also wanted to do a series of books from those short stories, and had even created a lot more. I was going to use the same characters, and maybe introduce new ones. Book series were really popular at the time, with the "Goosebumps" series and "Fear Street" series by R. L. Stine, among others. I gave up on that quickly when they seemed to be a bit repetitive.

Every since playing Mario and various other video games, I wanted to learn how to make them.

Then, an architect, mainly because they have to be creative, and can make any choices they want. And, because the firm my mom used costed gazoodles of money. And I wanted money.

I always wanted to be a marine biologist. I stuck with that all through elementary school, went to camps out on Cape Cod, read everything I could find, etc. This was based mostly on an almost obsessive fascination with sharks.
The fascination continues, but at some point I decided that getting eaten by a shark would kind of suck and around the same time frame I got my first chemistry set. I chose trying to blow myself up over offering myself as bait and have followed that path ever since.

I remember wanting to be an artist first. That stuck for years, but around 8th grade I wanted to be a carpenter, then architect, then I couldn't choose between those two.
Eventually I picked architect, but after a while realized I really didn't know why I wanted to be one. Luckily I found chemistry. After taking it for the first time and finding it fascinating, I decided it was for me ^_^
...hmm, I think I wanted to be a farmer at one point too (it was always fun to help my dad with the garden).

I've pretty much wanted to be everything at one point or another. The only enduring desire was something in the performing arts. Now, I'm moving to NY to do just that! However, if I had not given up on that dream a few years ago, I would have a better chance at making it professionally now. There's a lesson in there for all you youngins!

Unfortunately, I'm colorblind, and you can't be a professional or military pilot if you're colorblind.
That sucks.

I think the first lasting professional goal for me was game design, and then that turned into author, and then I thought business for a while, and then I finally got back to science. But, the more I think about economics the more attractive it looks; good thing physics works well with it.
I mostly post over at LessWrong now.

When I was very little, I wanted to be an artist, ballerina, or astronaut. Then for a while I wanted to be an archaeologist. Then around grade 6 it shifted to author/teacher/psychologist/advocacy-civil rights work. And it's been pretty consistent there, with possibly interest in theater somewhere too. So I have five potential careers to chose from, and the majority are near-impossible to succeed in or have very little pay! :)
At least I'll be happy!

At four, I decided I wanted to be a nurse because the outfit was neat-o (Florence Nightingale style, not actual nurse garb)

At six, I decided I wanted to be a teacher.

At thirteen, I decided I wanted to be political scientist/lawyer/president (yes, they're grouped just like that).

I'm now sort of considering going into neuroscience instead of political. But maybe not. I dunno.

When I was around 7 (and possibly earlier) until I was 15 I wanted to be a zoologist. I've always loved animals and wanted to care for and study them. Looking back, I specifically wanted to be an ethologist/comparative psychologist/caretaker working both in the wild and at parks, zoos, or rescue center of some kind, though I didn't know the two former terms at the time. Then I realized it would probably involve a shitload of college (at I time when I was disillusioned with institutional education and quitting high school) and that even if I could get a job in that field, it probably wouldn't be doing what I really wanted.

Which was basically to get paid to hang out with wolves. :) I still plan to go here for a month or so practicum within the next couple years.

I've also wanted to be a writer, musician, inventor, business owner of some kind, sociologist, and health care worker and have had brief thoughts of being in law enforcement and such. If it's a job and I know about it I've probably considered/imagined doing it at least a little. :)

For the past several years I've wanted most to be a filmmaker, but due to logistical and practical reasons (filthy lucre!) I've decided not to go ahead with NYFA's intensive 8-week workshop this fall. Instead I plan to take a 17 month LPN course starting in November so when I finish I can help people while making good money, hopefully enabling me to pursue those passions later while also being able to pay my bills and afford cool stuff. I might also take a course or two at a nearby film center this fall if I can.

I wanna do it all. Instead of just one career for all time I want several different kinds of projects and jobs in addition to/between/after the need for nursing gigs.

When I was in first grade I wanted to work at NASA, to be paid large amounts of money to get lost in numbers. I didn't know much about NASA at the time, it just sounded like the most extreme thing I could do with math.

Hmmm. When I was young, I also wanted to be a horse. The usernames I
use sort of indicate that maybe I still do. :D I probably would be a furry
except I've had some very unpleasant experiences with furry fandom.

I can't remember very early on, but somewhere along the line I decided I
wanted to be a scientist, and stuck with that for years. My teachers were
rather worried by it. I just wanted to know what made the world go. All of it.
I think I was just a little ambitious there.

Later, I discovered electronics, and through that computers, and then
programming. So I eventually arrived at wanting to be a programmer.
Which I now am.

Don't be silly. You still have a hell of a lot of time to realise that dream. You just need to find an education institution that's better for you. If you're good at maths and you enjoy it, don't give it up just because you had a shitty high school.

What I wanted to be: An Archaeologist; digging up lost cities and magnificent temples; uncovering secret hordes of treasure long buried, and breaking the curses on ancient tombs.

Mind you, didn't everyone want to be a slightly cooler version of Indiana Jones?

Where I am: Halfway through a degree course in modern history ( on recent wars, cultural trends and political ideologies ) that will set me up as a teacher of basically the same stuff.

I DESPERATELY wanted to be a native american. Yup, that's right. I wanted to buy a buffalo and a big piece of land and then build a teepee. Then I wanted a canoe and some pretty feathers for my hair. Then when I got older I realized being a native american wasn't a profession, it was a heritage :oops: Instead I'm gonna give up my next seven years to grad school and hope I can find that "unique" idea!

I have wanted to be many things throughout my life, but I always knew I would be an engineer, so the other things were just sort of passing thoughts until my ultimate goal would be reached.

In elementary school I wanted to be a rocket scientist and a professional dragon pilot. In 8th grade I wanted to be a firefighter, radiologist (read:$$$), and a nuclear technician of some sort.

In High School I actually got some information from colleges about going into Education, but then I quickly realized that Mechanical Engineering is exactly what I was looking for my whole life, its pretty much an amalgamation of everything I had dreamed of before (somehow dragon pilot works in there too).

Of course, I still want to be a firetruck. I see some of you wanted to be animals, anyone else desire to become an inanimate object?

When I was young, I somehow got me head set on the following future career.

I wanted to be a professional Hockey play, who would drive the Zamboni between periods (because that thing is awesome!), but for some reason, instead of just driving it on the ice I decided I wanted to deliver pizza between periods, on the zamboni.

I don't remember how I decided that that would be my dream job. I still think it would be crazy cool though. Could you imagine ordering pizza while watching an NHL game, and having Peter Forsberg drop the pizza off at your house on a zamboni? My big concern would be what do you tip Peter Forsberg for delivering pizza?

I was a little bit of a weird kid.

I wanted to be a fireman then a person at legoland that built tons of stuff.

I also had dreams of building small machines to play war games with other people.

Then I wanted to be a graphic design person, but thats everyone when they put their hands on a version of paint shop pro.
Then a computer engineer, but the only reason I dropped that was because mathematics is fun and will never get boring.

Our truth is only as good as our assumptions.

Oooh, me too. I went to legoland in Denmark when I was eight. I though it would be the coolest job ever. Alas.
