When I was growing up, I wanted to be a Teacher, a Veterinarian, and a writer. The first two were kind of impulsive wants, but the last one, I would actually consider myself an ex-aspiring writer, with hopes of becoming an aspiring writer again. (I've written some stories, but it's been a while since I've written new ones)    What did you want to be when you grew up?

When I was growing up, I wanted to be Davros.

Something about being turned into a burnt out monstrosity during a war, and then plotting to turn my own people into disgusting, useless squid-like things with no emotions, implanted in brilliantly destructive machines of death with no purpose other than purging the universe of everything 'different'....

Dunno, it's always appealed to me. Plus, he has the coolest voice ever.

Some guy named Donathan used to write stories here until he was banned.

Train engineer. Architect. Pastor. High school teacher. Linguist/translator. HR manager.

One thing I didn't ever think about being was a career civil servant in IT. Strangely, neither did anyone who works with me. Bunch of losers! Unhappy

Frankly, I wanted to be an artist, I still do. No matter what happens, or diversions that get in my way. Right now I'm focused on getting a job first, then go from there.

Here's one called "The Ex-thug".  Read it and tell us what you think.

Try it at Christmas dinner.  Get your family's input as to whether or not there's a future in it for you.

Alas and alack, any sort of dinner-related entertainment has been prohibited since last year's cranberry sauce incident. Cry

When I was a teenager, I wanted to live in a grass hut on a beach where it was always sunny, the waves were always cranking & there was always plenty of weed & cold beer.

And all the beautiful, tanned, horny young girls in tiny bikinis I could screw.

Actually, I'd still like that.

You didn't mush it all up in your mouth, and then squirt it through your teeth right into everyone's mouths whenever they started to speak, did you?  Take it from me, that doesn't usually go over too well.

A radio disc jockey. I wanted to be able to listen to music all day and chat with the musicians. Instead, I cook.

artist/art librarian/architect

Got thru 3 years of architecture school and then it really sunk in that only about 5% of people with a degree can make a decent salary. The rest just draft and re-draft their bosses plans.
A new study finds that people who are chipper & happy live longer. Which is surprising because people who aren't chipper & happy want to kill people who are always chipper & happy. David Letterman

An arms dealer. Seriously.

As I got older, the whole legality issue sorta put a damper on that dream.

I wanted to be a nurse - that is, until my hand got sliced open.  The gushing blood made me change my mind.
