    I wanted to become a diplomat but career diplomats didn't earn much, so I ended up becoming an overworked lawyer (in part because my dad thought I would be a very good one). I now know that parents know best.

    As a kid, when I heard the garbage truck, I used to run to the window to watch the garbage truck pick up the garbage and dump it in the truck....so I wanted to be a garbage man. icon_razz.gif

    I am now a CPA/Accountant.

    When I was a little kid I wanted to be a fireman.
    When I was a teenager I wanted to be a teacher of math or music.
    Now I lead troops in combat.
    Never saw that one coming.

    All I can really recall wishing for the future was about 6 yrs old I was at a picnic and watching some guys white water kayaking and playing at Great Falls on the Potomac R. and thinking that I wanted to do that someday.
    I did it too, I got to where I could paddle highly technical class IV flawlessly in Arkansas and Colorado the first time through it. Not sure if it was that day on the rocks at Great Falls at the age of six that got the fire started inside my head for Edge Sports but its the first thing I can recall that looked really exciting.

    Growing up I liked technology studied electronics in high school and wanted to become an electrical engineer. I got BS in electrical engineering and worked my as off to get there too.

    In elementary school I wanted to be a doctor because any anatomy-related subject I found interesting and excelled at, grade-wise. I sort of grew out of this around the last two years of middle school and had no idea what I'd become. Finally, I settled on being an engineer when I discovered my passion for the more difficult mathematics and sciences in my junior year of high school.

    I'm currently an engineer today and have been for the past three years. Go me.

    Oh, and deciding on if I should continue on to graduate school or not, I seriously considered becoming an astronaut for about two weeks, having both a military background and would eventually obtain a Master's degree in engineering. Also, a few weeks ago I had the urge to quit my current job and become an Air Force pilot. This lasted for about a day.

    When I was four I wanted to be a baker and have a bakery called 'Pierre's Hot Buns' (they should have known I was gay there and then!) -in the end I became a painter.
