    What did you want to be when you grew up? What did you actually end up doing?

    I wanted to be a molecular biologist with my own tv show like Jeff Corwin.

    I'm currently en route to becomming a biochemist.

    Not exactly the same, but my interests have always been for the sciences.

    What about you guys?

    When I was a kid I wanted to be
    1. An International Jewel Thief! (seriously)
    2. A Reporter.

    What I actually became was a writer. And I was a reporter already...
    Do you think it's too late to become a jewel thief?

    When I was a kid I wanted to be a kid. Found out that couldn't happen because I was born middle aged.

    At about age 8 I wanted to be a doctor.

    I was a disaster. . . Until about the age of 8 or 9, I wanted to be a Waiter because I thought that they made a lot of money. . . turns out my parents were just really good tippers, hahaha.

    After that, it changed to being a Geologist until I discovered PCs/Macs/WebTV and now I'm currently head of technology for a public school system. Zzzzz...!!
