Are you doing that now?
I wanted to be a vet.
Not sure what happened to that goal.
My goals are still somewhat similar -- I want to be a university professor. I can't afford to get an advanced degree right now but hopefully, one day it will happen.
not famous famous, but just a singer.
before that when i was younger - i wanted to be a tea lady at the hospital
younger again - i just wanted to be a spider or a ''frincess''
That goal still existed until only a few years ago, when I seriously looked into it and realised the training costs were prohibitively expensive.
Would still like to do it though, a portion of my future lottery win is set aside for it still.
Then I started looking at training and whatnot to be a Commercial Pilot and that went on the backburner pretty quickly.
Got as far as the Colchester United - 'Centre Of Excellence'
No, i'm not doing that now.
I remember scoring my only goal and then the next day quitting. A year later think I picked up guitar and have been unambitious since.
people laughed at me for being a weird nerd and i was all like WELL AT LEAST I WON'T BE A BIN MAN.
Bin man thing actually looks more likely now tbh.
cos i had this big science book and i was able to quote to people what kinetic theory was without actually knowing what atoms are or y'know anything.
Yorkie-influenced, probably, but (unbeknownst to me at the time) my grandad had previously been one.
SO SAD THAT MY DREAMS WILL NEVER BE REALISED
even did my work experience aged 15 in one. it was the worst placement ever. spent a week cleaning cat shit and saw a dog being put down :( that put me off. i'd rather be a person doctor now
id feel sad too if i saw a person being put down
... or a steam train.
Now I have no idea at this crucial point in my life.
dis has made me younger
we didn't have a car so I got the bus every day, thought they were fun so wanted to drive one.
in the end I decided to pursue a career in IT instead. would hate to be a bus driver now, and my one attempt at driving any motorised vehicle ended in crashing within 10 seconds. not meant to be.
I was obsessed with dinosaurs.
That if I couldn't think of anything better to do, I'd be a teacher like him. Apparently I couldn't think of anything better to do.
A trait that continues to the present day.
until i realised that would never happen so i did systems analyst studies
Then I figured that I'm shit at maths and haven't got a creative bone in my body.
My granny was really disappointed when I told her I changed my mind. I'd be shit anyway because I'm lazy and I can't speak to people.
Doing AS's at the moment, I can't even decide what subjects I want to continue next year. How do people choose degrees and stuff? I'm pretty wary of anyone who actually has a clue what they really want to do at this stage.

Now I am, and God do I hate it.
and a farmer by night
because I liked counting money up and putting them in piles of size.
Thats what they do, right?
I had to follow a tractor down the road the other day. I hate tractor drivers.
I was a fucking cool kid alright.
Seems to be working out alright so far
