What did you want to be/do when you were a kid? Are you doing it now?

I wanted to be an olympic ice skater :-)
Now, not so much. Turns out, in order to do that, you need to be able to do cool stuff on the ice. I can barely stand, let alone move and do anything! Dang these clumsy legs!
Now, I'm a mommy, SAHM, who works odd jobs for extra cash and boredom relief.

  • I wanted to be a Veterinarian...
    now, I'm currently in the field (working at a Vet clinic) and attending school to become a Vet Technician...
    I bounce back and forth on whether or not I want to go all the way and go to Vet of the Dr.s I work for keeps trying to bribe me into it...she'd love to see me go..
    BUT, right now, I'm happy with where I'm headed...I know I'll make a great technician. :)

  • I wanted to be a paramedic... now I am an Athletic Trainer - so I'm still in an allied health-care profession. There is some cross over with the emergency medical coverage component... .but my hours are much better and I only deal with Athlete health care... so I think I picked right in the long run.

  • I don't think I had any ambitions. Sounds kind of odd I know. I really can't remember if there was anything I wanted to be when I grew up. I know I wanted to be a mom and now I'm a mom to 3 beautiful kids.

  • I wanted to be a marine biologist, then an anthropologist..........
    Now, I am fortunate that my hubby has a good job so I can be a SAHM- which pays the best IMHO.
