  • I wanted to be a teacher from the age of about 5. Before that I wanted to be nurse, but soon realized that I hated the sight of blood so that was out. LOL I have been a clasroom teacher (and I love it) but I'm taking a break now to homeschool our kids.

  • At first I wanted to be a nurse. Then as I grew older I figured I was scared by the sight of Blood. Then I wanted to become an actress.

  • For years I wanted to be a truck driver(my dad was)-but realized I hate driving long distance. My other ambitions were to be a mom, lawyer or child psychologist. Lawyer takes 8 years of college and I just wasn't up for that and I realized child psychologists see a lot of grief and bratty kids-so decided not to do that too!

  • I didn't really want to "be" anything. I wanted to "do" things. There were things I wanted to do, and I did them. I have traveled the world, I have lived in other countries, I had a career, I had a family, and I'm not middle aged with my only grown and gone getting ready to live out my next stage in life..

  • *LOL* I wanted to be Jacques Cousteau. But then realized I hated water. I've wanted to be a lot of things, and I've been a lot of things I didn't plan on. My degree was in Advertising, but then I've never used it.

    Honestly, I probably STILL don't know what I want to be when I grow up. :)
