What do you want to be?

Posted 21 July 2008 - 07:55 PM

What do you want to be when you grow up?

and for the older folks,

What did you want to be when you were younger?



Me? I always wanted to be a soldier... the honor, and glory....

Honor is cool. It is a good thing to have. But I learned there is nothing glorious about dieing in combat. I should have been something else.

At age 5, I wanted to be a giraffe.

At age 15, I wanted to be a teacher.

At age 25, I wanted to be a coder.

Now, I just want a decent nights sleep, well behaved children and a fat paycheck.... and a housekeeper.

When I was growing up I wanted to play professional football.

Now I am working towards being self employed.

I'm still in school, and I want to be a web designer. Well, not a designer really, just a web programmer.

When I was younger, I wanted to play football. Then I discovered Pop-Tarts and that dream slowly died away.

For most of my Life, I wanted to be either a Librarian, An Archaeologist or a Rock Star Who Also Paints and Writes Short Stories and Acts and Directs.

Now, I wanna be in IT and make enough money to survive...and maybe have the time to even do some more reading, digging, and playing.

Age 10: Wanted to be an architect
Before i knew how to program, i was obsessed with home design and used computer programs to make floor plans and 3D designs. I still am a little interested in that field.

12 - Now: Wanted to be a Programmer (or some nerdy computer job).

Same here, that was until I learned that the average salary of a web programmer is $22,000.

Now I just wnat to be a programmer... well not a programmer (I would rather manage over programmers, but I still need to learn about programming) but it is on the step to world domination so that is good enough for me :)

When I was a kid I always wanted to be a General lo Mainly because being in the military runs in my family, also considering my father was in 2 wars...After that I wanted to be a mechanic but hell I am glad I decided not become one

Soon at age of 13 I realized I was made to be with computers this is when the gates opened for me and the whole new language of programming came to me, So I my job would and that is being a Programmer of any kind even and IT position.

Edit: With no official degree I get 30 an hour, and nice paycheck 2 months left on the contract, they might hire me full time.

How much younger?

Age 7--I wanted to own a candy store.

Age 8 or so--I wanted to be a belly dancer. (didn't know what it was, lol. A ballet dancer is what my late grandma was)

I also wanted to be a veterinarian for a while, til I found out you had to put animals to sleep.

Then I wanted to be an artist.

now...

My dream job would be a millionaire heiress.

That aint gonna happen, so I would settle for a job as a programmer, hopefully one that I could work from home. That would be nice.

I want to be god. And to bring fire upon all of humanity, and to hear their screams of pain as they beg like peasants to be spared! I want all of humanity to fear my name, and for pain to be all that is known. And i want them all to feel such pain as to wish for death! I WANT THEM TO HURT! I want them to declare there false gods dead!
