Now that I'm seventeen, I either want to be a lawyer or an ambassador.

Hopefully, I could choose between the two of them now, cause college is fast approaching and I don't know if I should take a pre-law course or international studies. >_>
I remember those shows. Totatly Spies that cutesey stylish spies. Oh I loved Kim Possible. :wink:

But the whole ambassador and lawyer I would think that would go hand in hand.
I mean being ambassador is basically playing defensive political lawyer. So wouldn't it be good to go with international studies and have a bit of pre-law for an advantage for either becoming a lawyer or ambassador.

Wait, Kim Possible isn't that old, is it?
I'm seventeen, but I'm pretty sure KP wasn't around when I was six years old. Unless I was already writing fanfic then and I doubt that.

And what do you mean 'loved'? I still watch Kim Possible
I'm not sure when it was... I remember watching it when I was really young. ^^; But I still wanted to be a spy until, I was, like, ten years old, so maybe KP was airing when I was 6-10 years old.

It doesn't air here in my country anymore. ;_;

@Celestine - I guess so... I've been planning to take pre-law anyway. ^_^

I wanted to be first public enemy or a cop, the dichotomy didn't hit me at the time but I was very young.
It was my cat's eyes Anime Periode, so i think they are to blame.
Shamefully I failed to fulfill either of this two sided childish dream.

I wanted to be Lara Croft. I'm not even kidding. My cousin who was allowed to play more mature games gave us a copy of Tomb Raider III, and after getting a little playing time in, I started jumping across the furniture saying I was Lara Croft.

Then there's that time I wanted to be a basketball player.

And then that time when I was ten and wanted to be a meteorologist and watched the Weather Channel 24/7.

Then I wanted to be a dancer.

Then I wanted to be a poet.

Then I decided I wanted to get a film degree, and here I am now, getting a film degree. :lol:

I wanted to be a Marine Biologist, but then I found out that I would have to go to college. So, I decided I'd open a bar instead.

I wanted to be a chef like the celebrity chefs on FoodNetwork, but I didn't know the right word when I was like, what? 8? So I told my dad I wanted to be a cook, didn't say chef, and he blew up asking if I wanted to flip burgers at low minimum wage (culinary school didn't come to mind) ;__;. Then I thought "doctor" but I can't stand the sight of blood and probably have shaking fingers holding needles. I can't persuade my way to be a lawyer >__>. I thought being a video editor, but that was too hard at the point I was at. Even to this day, my parents (especially my dad) will try and steer me into going to med school but I'm terrible at math and science. I don't care that if I put enough practice, I'll succeed as a med student because I don't even have the stable mindset to handle the burden of caring for people's lives. I already struggled to convince them as is to be a psychology major and go to graduate school for I/O psych and have a minor in business administration. The problems of a college student...

When I was kid, I have this dream that one day I'll become a mermaid and live under the sea with my sealion friends forever..XD
But when I entered the 6th grade I planned to become a computer engineer but then I entered high school and realized that It's full of math.
And right now I'm really confused on what course to take.:S

Power ranger (ergh... because I mostly played with boys back in those days...)
-> Bird (I've always wanted to fly...)
-> Veterinarian (I love animal, but then I gave up on this dream because I found myself afraid of blood and pain, I can't even stand people cut a fish's head off in front of me...)
-> Adult (Yeah, that was when I wanted to get on the roller coaster but couldn't because I wasn't not old enough.)
-> Kid (Currently. For some lazy reasons, I don't want to grow up :?)

And also, I want to be a programmer! xD

I have always wanted to be a mathematician or a great general. Both are unrealistic dreams at present.

So I'm now idolizing Armagan Yavuz, Caba'drin, Vincenzo and Saxondragon of Mount and Blade (and its mods!) fame, hoping I'd one day be able to do something of that caliber.

I've wanted to be a professor, an inventor, an archaeologist, an actor, a writer, an engineer, ...
Hell, even an astronaut!

But right now, the thing I want to be most of all... is 'happy'.

I've always wanted to be an artist. *stares at self now....-is- an artist-LOL* Though I've had all kind of other wishes too, totally not related like- To become a journalist. But then I thought that they could send me to some dangerous place to report from there and I could get killed. XDDD LOL, I don't know how I got that idea with my kiddo mind, but it made me gave up from that wish.

I wanted to be the Milky-Bar Kid.

I never got to be, but I did go off to drama-school when I was 18 and worked in theatre for a while. Never made as much money in the theatre as it cost to attend drama-school, but it actually helped a lot when I went into game-development to have that background.

I think.... I want to be a teacher. I even don't understand why I want to be a teacher, cause in the end I realized that I am not good at teaching. lol.

As I grow older, my dreams then constantly changing. When I was still in elementary school until senior high, my dream was to be a mangaka. But after I go to the college, right now, my dreams changing into illustrator. ;w;
