I wanted to be the very best, like no one ever was.
Actually no, I wanted to be the cool, pretty, super nice popular girl who everyone likes and is friends with, with long curly hair and always wearing sunglasses. The one who has boys hanging all over her.
And now I'm a smol emo raspberry child who is super shy and struggling with gender identity (I wouldn't call myself "emo" but I have the hair cut and the wardrobe for it...). I want to be a trauma nurse, too. But I've always loved medical stuff.
I have always wanted to be a professional developer when I grow up
I wanted to be a comedian. I like making people laugh
I’ve always wanted to be an astrophysicist, or at least be a scientist. Working at NASA would be so cool!
I wanted to be powerful and use science to make myself god like. Such things are not granted to the deluded.
I had heroes as a kid, but I never particularly wanted to be them. In the context of what I wanted to do with my life, that changed constantly. From princess to carpenter to chef to psychologist to exotic vet. Now I'm studying to be a science teacher.
I guess I'm the only one who wanted to be Superman; leaping over tall buildings in a single bound, racing speeding locomotives and bullets, rescuing cats out of trees...bummer.
What I wanted to be when I was a kid was very unstable. One day I could want to be a scientist, the next I might want to be an artist. I suppose technically I'm still a kid, and I think I've settled on veterinary surgeon, although that may change.
First what I remember, I wanted to be a president. I never liked the real one, Václav Klaus, not because of his political actions and views (I was too little to understand them) but I never liked his face and I viewed him as someone who stole the place of the preceding one, Václav Havel. It may have also been influenced by the fact that both my parents were strong supporters of Havel. So I decided to be a president that will be much better and cooler than Klaus and as favorite as Havel. Oh and also pass a law that will give all children sweets for free.
After that I also remember I wanted to be a cook (despite my current horrible cooking skills), interior house painter, a scientist who will design a teleporter and an architect who will design the highest building in the world.
I wish I would be a child again, since my idea about my future was much more clear than it is right now...
I wanted to be a vet for aaaaages, then a clinical psychologist, mental health nurse, an educational psychologist and now a teacher.
I actually seriously considered all of them but I have always liked caring roles and I love teaching. I will probably come back to educational psychology after I've been in primary teaching for a few years.
My childhood hero was Spiderman
I've let this thread go a while without responding but the responses are excellent in and of themselves
I'll add that as I went into my formative years I realized I needed to develop some means of actually earning a living and my interest was mainly centered on becoming a forensic pathologist, ( My older siblings were in the medical fields & education).
Sadly, as a late born child and a fraternal twin, money was tight and only one of us could go to University and only because she was smarter and gained scholarship money and I did not.
I'll leave my sad tale there.
I wanted to be a cop/policeman.
Journalist, to be more specific a War Correspondent I always thought and still think it would be a great job. To experience and see firsthand exactly what's going on, to explain exactly and truthfully what's going on to people(distribute the facts), the adrenaline rush... Not to mention the pay would be pretty great as well.
A sailor, military or civilian didn't matter.
I like the peace and solitude the ocean provides. There are no problems to worry about out at sea, except for making sure you don't sink/starve. There is always something to do so you don't get stuck with too much free time and dwell on stuff (ships break in some way on pretty much an hourly basis and need constant fixing, so it's unlimited work).
Being with the same people every day with no one else around removes the usual barriers of socializing and friendship. It's not like they have anywhere else to go anyway, so everyone ends up talking to everyone pretty quickly. Everyone working towards the same goal for months/years in a row (not sinking/dying) is a type of bonding that doesn't exist in normal life.
Seeing new places and having unlimited "reset buttons" is a cool perk too. Made a fool of yourself at a particular port? Who cares, you can be whoever you want at the next one and try again.
Yeah, I've put some thought into this.
Center fielder for the Yankees. Rock star was my backup. Seem to have fell a little short
Then I wanted to build hot rods
Then I found out how much of a toll being a firefighter takes, and I found out being a cop wasn’t exactly what I thought it was.
Building cars is hard to make money doing unless you’re really good.
I wanted to be a nurse because I like helping people but I know that job would only break my spirit because of all the people that can’t be helped.
I’m sad to say that I don’t really have any dreams or ambitions at this point. Money doesn’t motivate me. All I want is to be content. Happiness would be nice but that is a lofty goal.
My Mom.... She raised me literally on her own and I bet that wasn't easy at all but she did it and she still does it and doesn't complain one bit. She is so humble and just gives and gives and gives. My Mom is my hero for sure. Yes we get into from time to time like any teen and Mom but she is still the best.
I've always wanted to join the army and to become a soldier.
it has never changed.
