Posted:I wanted to be either a writer or a famous artist.
I have now nearly completed a degree in illustration, and im planning in going into writing and illustrating children's books, so i guess im not that far off from what i wanted to be when i was little.


Only when the last tree has died
and the last river has been poisoned
and the last fish has been caught

Posted:When I was really young I wanted to be an accountant for some reason, I dunno why, I prolly didn't even realise what it was all about but I liked the sound of it. I wonder what that says about me

Ever since I was about 14 I wanted to be a bike racer, but I think you have to start racing when your in the womb or something. Either that or become a <Withnail>Multi-Millionaire, and then buy your own race team, none of which I have done so far.



boing...boing...When the naive man admits his naivete, he is no longer naive.Thus, all people are regarded by society as either ignorant or a liar.Wonders never cease, as long as you never cease to wonder.

(One hitch... I've decided that it's boring and I hate it and I want to be a jeweller instead....oops.)

Posted:When I was little I wanted to be a Princess, who would be rescued from my balcony by a handsome Prince.

I now live in the Princess Palace - a little like Beckinham Palace but not *quite* so grand . I have a balcony as well - so we're nearly there......

But.....I'm still waiting for that handsome prince to rescue me

In my 9-5 world I'm in Marketing which means I get to "think outside the box" *alot*

I wanted (and still do want) to be a drummer - I've got the drive but sadly coupled with realism and an music degree I know it just comes down to luck

Could be I wanted adventures on the seven seas and lots of buried treasure but actually I think the parrott-on-the-shoulder thing was probably the main appeal

Posted:Hell after seeing Pirates of the Caribean, I want to be one too! lol

Let's see now.

I wanted to be a zoologist. My mom told me I was too stupid in certain areas so I didn't.

I wanted to be a marine biologist. I was told I was too stupid in certain areas so I didn't.

I wanted to own a bed and breakfast but I was told I didn't have the sense to handle it. So I didn't.

I wanted to be a gymnast and/or figure skater. I landed wrong and hurt my knee.

All through all these other desires I always wanted to be a writer and a performer, possibly direct, never famous, just wanted to do it, I just didn't have the courage to say it. When I finally did confess I was told by family it is a useless persuit and that I didn't have the talent to pull it off. I think I got really sick of hearing that and am finally succeeding in what I want, and I am acheiving my dreams.

Thing is, now I find out I really am smart enough to have done whatever I wanted, it was the belief that I could that I was lacking. *sigh*

Posted:I wanted to be a lady morris dancer.At first I was in the closet about this, then recently I 'fessed up to my boyfriend and best friend and lo & behold they both had the same childhood ambition to wave hankeys,tie bells on their ankles and shout "Hey Nonny Nonny"! This was a huge relief and now we're thinking of setting up a support group for closet wannabe morris dancers.

Posted:I always wanted to do something with computers. I didn't really know what until I had finished my degree in programming. It was at that time that I realized that I hated programming. I prefer to build and repair computers. I ended up not hating all programming and do a little web page creation.

Posted:moris dancers.... i allways found them fairly scary when i was really little, i mean they run around with there really odd clothes and bells, making lots of noise and hitting each others stiks..... very very odd, i can see why i was scared.
i suppose im still young, i wanna be an artist or one of those really intense maths gurus, but i dont realistically know what i wanna be...
