I wanted to be a marine biologist or zoologist - but then I realized exactly what that entailed and so I did my second choice - graphic/design/art and been doing it. I can still travel the world though hopefully and whatever like I wanted to do.l

All I can ever remember wanting to be was an "artist" but even when I was young I knew there was no money in it and it was kind of self-indulgent. As soon as I found out about web/multimedia design I wanted to be part of it...shame it's taken me so long to finally get into it, but I think I'm finally on the way...after the bubble has burst.

Me too, my dreams of being an R.S.P.C.A. Inspector died shortly after junior school.

I started with the multimedia at 16 and never looked back! However, I still have a dream of joining the Police force. That'll depend on how well the transfer between education and industry goes. It's always a good idea to have a back up plan! ;)

Defense contractor, or a marine. They're still highly plausible, time will tell. I wanted to be a cyclist but it isn't plausible anymore, I'm too big to go pro.

In grade 9 I wanted to be a Clothing Designer...
By grade 12 I wanted to be an Accountant instead...
By 2nd year of Uni I wanted to be a Pilot...
In 2nd year of Flight school I was told I couldn't fly because of a family medical condition...
So I wanted to get into Multimedia...
Found myself addicted to a little program called Mosaic...

So, if it isn't obvious, I want to be a basket weaver... :D

Man, that sucks about not being able to be a pilot.... sorry. I'm not sure what I'd do if they told me that.

I wanted to be an architect for the LONGEST time... I realized that wasn't my calling late in high school. Now... I make web pages.

In front of a computer screen is pretty much where I want to be.
