What did you want to be when you were little?

I always remember wanting to be a stocker at a grocery store, strange enough. I loved organizing things which I guess as it turns out might be a precursor for OCD. LOL.

I wanted to be an high school English teacher. The year I graduated from high school is when the school system in my state changed a ton of rules pertaining to certification and how the teachers disciplined students and it was also right about the time that school violence became prominent. In other words, I chickened out.

Race car driver. I almost made it to, well at least a start to becoming one. I was offered a quarter midget when I was 8 and my mom said "Hell NO!" I will never forgive her for that.

I wanted to be an archeologist (I was a geek even as a little kid) or a doctor or the President of the United States.

I shot a little too high.

I think it changed depending on which way the wind was blowing. Probably an athlete is the career I most often wanted. It varied from football, baseball, and basketball.

When I was a teenager, while preparing for Med School, I really wanted to be a rock star! (What teenager doesn't?) Neither happened.

I never thought about being a Lactation Consultant when I was a kid (which is what I am) because they didn't exist then. The profession is in it's infancy.

I wanted to be an astronomer. Not an astronaut because I could care less about being in space, but the study of it was what interested me. My room was a shrine to space up until I realized you had to be good at math than it broke my heart.

I thought I wanted to be a veterinarian all throughout my childhood. I occasionally considered being an archeologist or a zoologist specializing in African wildlife. I also always wanted to be a writer. I would still love to be a writer, so not all childhood dreams die!

I used to always ask my friends, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" I made a conscious effort to wean myself from asking this as I was entering my early 20s, but now I am all the wiser and realize that we are not suddenly static beings when we "become" adults. We are ALWAYS growing up (at least if we are wise enough to realize that we are not perfect and are in need of constant mental and emotional growth)! We can ALWAYS seek to change the course of our life, so why not seek inspiration from our childhood dreams?

Out of all my siblings I was the oddest damned child...

When I was about 5 and had just started Kindergarten they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, and I said a "brain doctor" lol.

Around age 7, I switched to wanting to rule the world. By 9 or 10 I wrote in my classroom journal that I wanted to rule the world and have a side job as a writer. At 13, I STILL thought ruling the world would be awesome but I wanted to help animals somehow, maybe as a veterinarian until my parents explained that I couldn't afford school, so I kept the previous goals along with modeling (actually accomplished THAT goal so far!).

After that I wasn't really "little" anymore, but I've bounced back and forth with what I want to do. Still never figured out the world domination thing
