When I grow up...

What do you want to be when you grow up? Or, if you're already considering yourself grown up, what do you do? Do you enjoy it? What would you like to do instead?

well, i'd love to be a writer. but i dont think im good enough. everyone thinks they can write, im no exception. but with so many talents out there, where do i fit it? i'm not talented enough to get a free ride in, and i dont have the commitment or perseverence to fight my way to the top. so i think ill....ah hell if i know. i still have 4 yrs to figure this out :)

Almost anything, as long as it involves creating. I'd love to write, or act, or sing, or draw, or something that allows people to look at me in wonder and ask themselves how I thought of something so wonderful and terrible. If I can somehow take the ideas and images that are in my head and my heart and transpose them into something tangible and present them in such a way that people or at least I myself are moved.

I've rambled a bit much. :) That's my two bits.

I want to work whith something that I like doing...computers... and make a lot of money! ;) money is good for allmost everything. but I shall not live for working... I will work to be able to live. money is required for living see...but I guess it is not a bad thing if you enjoy the things work whith so much that you could devote your life to it.

I'm 25, I have a 5 year old daughter and I'm still in college and I work full time and I have NO idea what I want to be when I grow up.

There are little things that I enjoy doing here and there but nothing that I feel that I'm good at enough to warrant doing it for the rest of my life. I have no idea. So for now, It's Computer Science. At least I can make alot of money while deciding what would make me happy. *laughs*

Hm, I'm working as web developer at the moment, and yes, it's what I want to do. But then I'd rather do it someplace else since my current employer is just.. Aargh, let's not go there =)

I'm already what I studied and wanted to be all my life (an artist) but there's so much more to life and what I want than what I do for money. When I grow up I want, more than anything, to be living with my chef husband who will cook wicked and sinful things for me. We'll have passionate sex, live by the ocean and I'll be plump, rosey cheeked and content, still painting or doing some other type of artwork and taking care of my many animals.

I guess what I'm trying to say is, at this point in my life, all I want for my future is some peace and happiness. I've waited so long for it already.

Anna will appreciate this... I'd like to be one of the following:

1) to be having an affair with one of the Aa girls... 2) to be married to Karen... 3) or to be married to Shellie

Yep, that's all! :o)

Everybody join in! ;)
