What Did You Want to Be when You Grew Up?

For those of you who're done growing up, what did you dream about when you were younger? And are you satisfied with where your life has taken you today? As for me, I really wanted to be a Pokemon trainer, but that dream didn't quite pan out despite my best efforts lol. My #2 choice was race car driver, which isn't so far off really. So, how about you?

Well, I can certainly tell you I didn't dream of working in the insurance industry.

I think as we get older we have to get realistic and strike a balance between 3 things: What are we good at? What do we enjoy doing? What will pay the bills to support our preferred lifestyle?

Seems to me that usually one of these will be compromised to accommodate the other two.

Ever since I was 12 I wanted to be a MP in the military because my dad was.
Now I'm an engineer in the military, but once I finish up these 5 years left, and I have my degree I want to be a trooper back in Alaska.

Insurance? Why was I under the impression that you were involved in the Church?

Well, I was until I got let go because of budget cuts. I'd like to get back into youth min, but I landed a good paying job as a claims analyst. Life is full of twists and turns!

I'm currently growing up. First year of college in the fall. I'm majoring in chemistry and plan to be a pharmaceutical scientist. Hopefully all goes well, cause this fast food/gas station stuff just isn't piling money in the bank.
