- Teacher: this was a common theme for me. I'm not sure why, but I think it had something to do with the fact that they were the only grownup job I actually saw for a long time. And there was something appealing about telling 25 people what to do and have them listen. I never did follow this path though - mostly because I don't like kids.
- Cowgirl: I think I wanted to be a cowgirl only because of the outfit. What can I say? I like tassles and chaps. Come to think of it... maybe I wanted to be a stripper?
- Ballerina: Stop laughing. I didn't know I had no rhythm, at the time.
- Police Officer: this was the longest lasting career wish for me. From the time I was 12 until the last few years of my first degree, I wanted to be a cop. (And yes, it was all about having a gun.) But, I discovered that cops have no fun really and the life and death stuff wouldn't be often enough for me to stay enthralled. I am glad I didn't become an officer, although, at times, I still want the gun.
- Mother: when I was a kid I fluctuated wildly between wanting to have 12 children by the time I was 30 and to never, ever getting married or having children ever. I still feel this way most days.
- Sniper: gun, solitude, killing strangers... what could be better? I still flirt with the idea of this career. Especially this month.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
