    Just out of curiosity posts :p

    The title says it all.

    When I was a kid (maybe about 10-14 years old) I really wanted to be a fireman, because firemen save people from dangerous buildings, elevators and most dangerous coventional situations. They risk their lives to do that the thought of being noble really touched me as a kid.

    As I grew older, I sorta gave up on this as an ambition because as you get older you start having things like existential crisis' and things like "oh no mid-terms are coming I can't do this anymore"

    In all seriousness, my current aspiration is to hope to study Law and become a good Lawyer.

    What about you guys? :p

    I loved planes a lot when i was 7, and i wanted to be a pilot. I grew out of that obsession and started loving sports and video games. I wanna be a sports scientist now, maybe employed with a pro team.

    When I was younger, I wanted to be Sonic The Hedgehog
    ..not even kidding here.

    It has definitely changed, but it changed into me not caring anymore and not really wanting to be anything.

    Younger : No clue

    Now: No clue, but probably something with medicine, but that doesn't exactly limit my options

    I wanted to be a heart surgeon. Now I'm thinking videogame designer, fashion designer, software engineer or something along those lines.

    Well the earliest I remember was wanting to be a police officer for some reason. Then I wanted to be a firefighter because " I could walk through fire" ( ya I know that was when I was little lol) then I wanted a job that had to do with fixing things still do. But now I want to have a job that has to do with computers so like software engineer or. Something like that

    When I was a kid, I wanted to be the Prime Minister of Israel. Haha, I looked up to Golda Meir so much. Nowadays, I actually just want to find somebody to love and settle down, have kids and be a good mother.

    I wanted to be a game designer and a savior, now idk...
     
  14. when i was younger i always wanted to be a veterinarian surgeon, as i love animals that much. however things in my life have held me back from doing as well as i'd like, and i'm not planning on picking triple science at GCSE(which is kind of mandatory if i want to do biology at A level, or go further into that sort of career).

    much to the annoyance of my science teacher (he wants all of top set to pick triple science and yadadadada), i'm going to take sport science at GCSE and A level and i hope for a career in that sort of area.:rolleyes:

    When I was young I wanted to be... a hotel worker...
    I enjoyed staying in them as a kid so my mind figured it'd be twice as fun to work there... I later learned I was horribly mistaken...

    Now I wanna pursue something involving either Art (such as Animation or Video Editing) or Finance (Analytics).

    I've always wanted to do something with computers, going to Tulsa Tech starting Junior Year for cyber security, most likely will go to college for computer science as well.

    I remember marking down on the typical "What do you want to be when you grow up?" assignment veterinarian.
    Now I'm considering majoring in psychology, though that's always subject to change.

    :eek:! I want to be a Forensics person too xD Possibly a Crime Scene Investigator.

    When I was younger I wanted to be a Fireman as well. That changed to being a pilot, then veteranarian, and military then finally changed to Forensics after I took a class for it which I think I'll stick to lol
