Nope. I didn't know what I wanted to do until halfway through my second semester of college so I dropped out and went to trade school.

Yes. I always told my mother that I wanted to have a BDSM blog and review sex toys. To this day she brags to her Sunday School friends about my accomplishments. I do what I can to keep them all in stock. Where do y'all think all my Eden Points go? O.o

Great topic! As boring as my story is, I never really knew what I wanted to be when I grew up until.. I grew up. Lol. I had an interest in psychology in my teen years and had starting writing at 12 and was published for the first time at 15. I didn't know for sure though. In younger years, I had NO clue at all and often worried that I'd be the only person in the world with no talent/skills. Lol. I kind of wanted to be a teacher because I think every kid wants to be a teacher. That didn't last long. Now I'm a writer and I actually graduate this month from a writing school! Next, I'm enrolled to become certified in hypnotherapy. So I guess the interests I had stayed, but there are so many things I want to be. I don't think I'll ever settle for just author or just hynotherapist. I was thinking about this a lot this past year and finally came to the conclusion that I DONT' HAVE to be just one thing. Heck, I might even become a rock star too! Only kidding, that would be disasterous. Lol

When I was too young to remember, my mother loves to repeat this story. She claims I wanted to be a nun.

When I was a kid I wanted to be a veterinarian too. I don't really want to do anything like that now. I want to go into forensics!

From the time I was a child, all I wanted to do was grow up and become a mom. I now have three beautiful people in my life who've helped me to fulfill that dream! <3

I also wanted to be a veterinarian! I decided it wasn't for me because I couldn't bear the thought of having to put an animal down. So no.

I'm not digging up dinosaurs or mummies. So, no.

The little kid in me will always want to be an archeologist or paleontologist.

But in real life, I'm pretty happy to settle with all of my books and documentaries, and satisfy the digger in me with gem hunting.

A good chunk of what I do wasn't even a paid or recognized profession when I was a little kid. I'm a Lactation Consultant, Nurse and a Post Partum Doula. I did NOT want to be a nurse when I was a kid, I wanted to be something out of the ordinary for a woman. I avoided things like nursing work, office work like the plague when I was younger.

When I was very young, I wanted to be a "Mommy" and I am. I also wanted to be an archeologist and/or and Egyptology. Last time I checked the want ads, there were few jobs available in those fields.

When I was a little older, I wanted to either be a writer or a journalist or go into law. I write, but don't know a whole lot about law. I'm glad I didn't go into journalism, as it's a dying field. I did have an advice column in the local newspapers from 8th grade until about half way through High School. Then I wanted a "real job" (not realizing the column was more interesting that "real work") and then, for a while really wanted to go into music and be in a band. That never panned out, but I sure as hell dressed like it for a long time.

In late High School and University, I was studying Psychology with a leaning towards Child Development, and in college was also Pre-Med. (Y'know medicine was something I could "fall back on" if the whole Rock Star thing never worked out. LOL!)

I ended up in the Health Care field by a slightly unusual route.

But, I'm doing exactly what I love to do.

Kinda, sorta. I guess I should have specified in my childhood delirium that I also wanted to be paid for writing fiction.

No, I'm much better than I could have imagined. When I was a kid, I wanted to be a teacher (basically only because my Aunt was one, and my Mom had wanted to be one), but it wasn't what I wanted, really.

When I got older, I wanted to be in fashion design.

What actually came about is much different. I am a stay at home slave for my Master, and I do web cam video chat hosting. I'm very, very happy with my life.

Nope. I wanted to be a newspaper reporter. Ended up in a totally unrelated field, but I am happy with my current profession, so it's all good.

Considering I wanted to be everything from a Disney princess to a veterinarian, no, I don't.
I still want to be a vet though, I think being able to help sick or abused animals would be the best thing I could possibly do and still get paid for.
Truth be told I sort of want to work for the ASPCA like the people on Animal Cops. I know it'd break my heart to see animals in such conditions but knowing I could help them would be the greatest thing ever. <3

When I was little I wanted to grow a long beard, get a bunch of tattoos, and play music. I feel that those were pretty realistic goals.

Great thread by the way!!!

When I was a child, I wanted to be a librarian or a lawyer, based on how I liked the quiet and was able to speak my case, haha. Now though? Not in a million years will I become either. I'm much more laid back and loud than back then, so I'll hopefully become something creative when the time is right.

I wanted to be a veterinarian growing up, I even did the whole pre-vet thing in college, got all the way to the application for vet school and decided to stick with what I am doing now, which is working in animal emergency as a nurse vs. doctor. I love what I do and the level of care I get to provide my patients. So I'm not exactly what I wanted to be but I've found a way to work in the field in a way that is better than what I imagined as a child.

Nope, but I'm glad I grew out of that phase. Don't think I would be happy living as a forest ranger.

I never really had any child hood dreams, other then being married(and I'm on my way now) So I guess that would be a yes?
