What did you want to be when you were a kid?

And why didnt you become that?

I always wanted to be a marine biologist. But I realized that I was afraid of being out in the open water, miles from any land, with thousands of feet of water beneath us.

And I am not the best scuba diver either! I am scuba certified, and on my last big dive, they wanted to go over a HUGE ravine when we were 90 feet below. It felt like a horror movie, something was going to come up and, in one bite, swallow me! LMAO So... I couldnt really be one after I figured all THAT out... LOL

What about you?

  • I wanted to be a "call-girl" from as early as I can remember. That's what they called prostitutes a couple decades or so ago. I did not become that because I learned what the term actually meant and what it entailed, I was ignorant when I first became aware of the profession.
