hehe, I got the worst one.

I wanted to be a lampost...

yeah. It came from a stupid joke I wanted to make when I was a kid about "being so bright" but I forgot the punch line and my family has laughed at me for it ever since. awww.

I was thinking about what i would want to be when i grew up, and then i realized i'm never going to.

First I wanted to be a sewer worker (when I was really little) so I could hang out with the ninja turtles.

Then I wanted to work in the coast guard (my father did this)

Then I wanted to do nothing and be a bum.

Then I wanted to be a commercial pilot, but realize im to lazy to get the grades for it. Then I realized I wanted to become a nurse, which im kind of sticking to, but im drifting towards psychology, as I was more interested in psych nurseing anyways.

When i was little i was raised by the tv and wanted to be an actress, like my heroine Marylin Monroe...T
hen i grew up and realised that i have actually been drawing pictures since I was a feotus and decided instead to be an illustrator...
Then I went to college and realised that i didn't have any ambition to be an illustrator...
So now i'm working a job i hate whilst i figure out if i want to do either..a) go into the music industry either as a techi or a singer/songwriter b) artist or c) actually go back to the start and go into acting.

But that's just me being a typical woman. shop around for hours and buy the thing you tried on first!

First I wanted to be an adventurer
Then I wanted to be a barrister (to annoy my sister cos that is what she wanted to be)
Then I wanted to be a graphic designer
Then I wanted to make lots and lots of money and attend high-powered business meetings wearing a sharp suit
Then I wanted to never wear a suit again
Then I wanted to be a trainer
Then I wanted to run my own small business...

I still haven't reached that growing up bit yet, I will hopefully have many more satisfying career changes to go through.

It was a day for screaming at inanimate objects.

What this calls for is a special mix of psychology and extreme violence...

I have also conculuded that growing up is over rated and I've decided not to.

In the 60's people took acid to make the world weird, now the world is weird and they take prozac to make it normal again.
