When i grow up i wantED to be a professional athlete.

currently... not even close to becoming that LOL. In school for graphic Design.

IF anything, i kinda wish i kept bowling after i graduated from highschool. Been bowling since i was 5. Just money for leagues has become a WALL and stopped me from going any further =\

I hear ya Fawlty , and I would normally agree with ya but I am having a little problem physically that may jeopardize my current job as I am Not physically capable of doing what I once was able to . Like the song says " I'm not as good as I once was " tell me about it brother ! We'll see what happens but thanks for the words of inspiration Wink

Recently got my nephew to freak out his parents by saying to him that anytime anyone asks you "What do you want to be when you grow up?" all he has to say is, "Daddy's gurl."

- What you do (because you're supposedly grown up)

I work in a hospital as a Risk Manager, basically I investigate anything that goes wrong and help other people develop action plans to prevent it happening again. People think it's my job to solve their problems, but you can't know every job in the hospital, or all the rules and regulations that apply to them. When I first started the job my first major incident was a computer failure in the laboratory. A room full of scientists and computer programmers. I swear I was listening to them for 30 minutes before I heard one word in english!

or
- What you WANT to do (because you're not grown up)

I'm happy with what I do, but if you had asked me what I wanted to be when I was in school it would never have been nursing. I always wanted to be a soldier, so at least I got that bit right, but I always assumed I would be happy in a tank regiment or infantry. God that was boring!

or
- What you want to do OVER (because you're supposedly grown up, but you hate what you chose the first time around)

Clear sky thinking?

I should have applied for the helicopter pilots course when it was on offer. I always look up at helicopters and think 'If only'. I may have failed it, but at least I would have tried.

Thanks to everyone who has commented and said a few things about yourself. I thought it was time to update everyone on my situation and revive this thread a bit.

Back in November of 2011 I finally quit my job at the Lab and went back to school to complete some prerequisites in preparation of applying to graduate school. I ended up taking Calc I & II and an intro. to Environmental Engineering course. I also took the GRE in April. Well, somehow I did decently well in my classes and got good enough recommendations to apply to the program I was interested in.

By some miracle I was accepted and I'll actually be starting classes in less than two weeks! Over the next two years I will be busting my ass to get a degree from the Colorado School of Mines in Environmental Engineering. Thanks to everyone who has supported and encouraged me. It really shows that if you really want to do something you can if you put your mind to it.

I hope everyone else is doing well and following their dreams. I'll be busy but I'll be around, and hope to talk to you all soon!

That is amazing, Fawlty, congratulations. Does that have to mining and engineering or something? the name kind of confuses me, sorry.

- What you do (because you're supposedly grown up)
I'm still in school, Finally in the class initially wanted, after a year of suffering (harsh) and not really doing what I want, I'm also working in Tiger. A all-in-one kind of store, on the register, stocking selves, moving things around making them look good, that kind of stuff.

- What you WANT to do (because you're not grown up)
I want to be an Illustrator, maybe work for some VG company at first, Then move on to graphic novesl. I wouldn't mind Starting my own Graphic Novel/illustration company, Not really sure, right now.

- What you want to do OVER (because you're supposedly grown up, but you hate what you chose the first time around)
If the graphic Novel/Illustration things doesn't work out and I hate it, I would strive to be a Comedian, Getting over my stage fright and making a bunch of people laugh would be absolutely Amazing in my book.

And also I want to have a majestic beard, one that I would have to have a special comb for it, keeping it inline. Maybe adding grey streak, that would be so cool.

Mechanic at a bowling alley. Quite enjoy it and suits me.. but there's no advancement and the pay sucks.

-What you WANT to do (because you're not grown up)

What i want to do?!?! I've yet to figure that out lol. Since i'm in a golf "phase" a fantasy would be, professional golfer. Way more money in golf then there is in professional bowling(which i'm actually good at)

-What you want to do OVER (because you're supposedly grown up, but you hate what you chose the first time around)

My laziness in school. I think it would have made things a lot easier, and to be honest the stuff wasn't hard. I Was just lazy Embarassed
