    I wanted to be a super hero. I ended up as a computer nerd.....so I got close.

    I also wanted to join the Army or be a detective, but I didn't because of the being gay thing.

    I wanted to be one of those dudes who flies a plane that pulls an advertisement banner behind it (usually over beaches, but sometimes over traffic in landlocked urban areas).

    That's what I do for a living now.

    BTW, my local nickname is "the flying lizard" because I fly the Geico banner/flying billboard over traffic around Phoenix and Tucson.

    Me too. It's our own fault for not pursuing that dream, though my original childhood dream got me pretty damn close (and could still be an astronaut with a little more training).

    Make sure you teach your students that achieving their goals is more important than the potential income from their goals. That's where I, and many others, have went wrong. icon_wink.gif

    Forgive my rudeness, but that's your own fault. There's a huge market for "good" architects. If it weren't for other passions, I'd be one already. All it takes is shitloads of devotion to what you REALLY want. icon_wink.gif

    I wanted to be a cartoonist. First for shows like The Simpsons, then I decided making comic books was way cooler.

    Now, looks like I'm going to be an English teacher... icon_neutral.gif
    I won't even bother saying what I do now, because it's just a job to pay bills.
