What do you want to be when you grow up? I wanna be a princess :F

>.> I know... I'm pretty grown up but I still have faith! If that falls through I'll just be a drawer! Illustrator, to be exact. :F

If you're already grown up... you can either say what you are or, if you hate your job, what you wanted to be when you were a kid!

'What do you want to be?'

I want to be the very best.
Like no one ever was.
To catch them is my real test.
To train them is my cause~ Poke- Wait. That's not it! Maybe when I was younger.

What I truly want to be is Immortal...or at least one day trial 'Tentacle Monster'.

I always thought of being a mangaka... but i lack talent... plus
not living in japan srly cut any posibilities of real sucess.

Then again i always dreamed of being a scientist... my objective since
i can remember... like when i was 4 yrs old was to achieve eternal fame
by discovering something (whatever) so interesting, so ground-breaking
than it would change that particular field of knowlenge forever and
even be the origin of shift on mankind viewpoint of themselves.

Like Galileo, or Newton, or Darwin, or Einstein.

Something so big, but so simple than people would wonder how we didnt figure out it
centuries b4.

Darwin is the greatest example... now we understand how life
came to be, how complexity arised from simpler roots by elemental
processes which are innerent of life itself.

We dont longer need supernatural explanations to explain who we are.

Thats so beautiful, so moving a feeling than you can no longer view
reality the same way ever again.

Thats what i wanted to do.

Maybe i will score the big prize someday, but even then i will help to change
the world with my research. Cuz we all scientist work as one. What i do
now, is part of a eternal whole of human curiosity, of passion, of love,
of a burning desire for understanding.

I just love what i do now. Its more than myself. Its all what i am.

have you ever put effort on it? if you simply say you want it, it doesn't mean anything at all

Things change over time. Some people stick with their childhood dreams and some don't. I decided to keep my writing and drawing as hobbies rather than a career, which I think is good because I can write and draw about whatever I want! My job might not be what I expected but that doesn't mean I don't like it. :p

I thought I was gonna be a game designer, but during these
last few years, I've really enjoyed taking many things apart
and putting them back together: mainly computers and DVD
players.

So I guess I could just be a computer technician again, only
this time go career. Just gotta work on getting more certs.

i really want to be an artist or writer, but in reality i went to the tech field (math, cs, etc)
i worked as a computer technician for a while and went back to school. now i just got my degree and am trying to find something nice to do.
i'll go back to school again if i failed to find a good-paying job :D
(i'm still in my twenties, by the way)

the reason i chose the tech field is because i'm good at computers and thought it would be easier to find a job in this field (programmer, say). let's see how it goes...

Isnt not so hard. The things more easy to do, is to wipe out humanity with
a engineered virus...

But then again, creating new life forms is not so hard either, but
there are is the money and time issue... plus the ethics, which
matter only cuz nobody is gonna fund you...

Is a shame than there are not misterious secret evil organizations
plotting to conquer the world...

Then again, if i know of one, ill be sure to let you know.

PS: I so wanna make chocobos... T_T... I wonder if
Square is gonna sue me if i call them that...

as i grew up, i was starting to think a bit more serious, and thought on wanting to work at a supermarket (where there is loads of stuff, there is loads of money!>_<)
but then, i saw this episode on Cow and Chicken (cartoon network), about their work experience...

after that, i didnt know what to do anymore. my current goal is to finish my education, and be an accountant xD moneyyyy <333

Maybe it's because of pressure from elders, but I haven't found out what I really want to be. Helping in old people's homes whilst still being in artist in either or both music and art, it'd be a dream, also busy on a book I hope would someday come to attention in the masses. But all of these things interest me, and I'm 20. Funny parents who put so many pressure on their kids, whilst most people themselves only find out what they really want to do midst 30 and 40's. It's called irony.

I wanted to be an artist, preferably a mangaka. However, just like Lord Zero said before me, just not being in Japan might not bring me some real success. My entire family also cut off that route simply because they want me to be a nurse. Yeah, having the 'nurse' title next to my name kinda sucks but I really don't have the motivation to become a doctor or anything so I guess I'll stick with that.

Still dreaming to be a mangaka though. :(

look @ all the sucessors on the web, megatokyo, penny arcade to name a few.

i originally wanted to do animation, but i know its too much of a job, and too low paying,

i was determined, took a course n all, but in one of the subjects i discovered after effects, been loving it ever since,

now im fansubbin with my skill and now i decided to do special effects =)

Honestly I don't really have much expectations for my future. I'm actually very intelligent, at least as far as I can tell from school and conversations with other people, but there's nothing that really strikes me as something I'd wanna do for a living.

I thought about it for awhile and I liked the idea of management but not what it's not something I consider a realistic goal. I would like to build and maintain a large facility that's at least generally self sufficient, plenty of room for development or expansion, all the facilities necessary to train and accomadate new personell or residents, and really just something that doesn't necessarily have to rely on third party support. I don't want some place that's completely cut of from the rest of the world but I'd prefer the relations be kept to import/export and not much more.

It's kind of an evil genius BS desire but what can ya do?

I want to be just like stalin, the man of steel. I want people to remember me as the iron man. I want to dominate the world. My dream is to invade and control the entire Russia for 10 years as no man in the history is able to do it.
Not even Napoleon or Hitler is able to do that. If I am able to do then I will be a great man. Churchill once said: "I was told that Oliver Cromwell had destroyed a lot things. And was therefore a great man." I want to be great therefore I have to destroy a lot things. LOL

I figure that I can maybe reach this goal by trying to cure some disease or something like that.

Profession never was an atractive word for me. Money makes everything boring.

Starting in highschool I wanted to become a manipulative Silver Tongue and form a nihilist cult - after reading about Darby Crash and his Germs Burns.

Now after some difficult times I've come to the sad realization that I have to help people, not attack them. I'll probably end up a writer or unprofessional wouldbe psychotherapist of some sort.
Still drool and shake over the idea of debate, but I make for a poor intelectual.

Though i'm in the university to have all the grades..
But I'm a programmer, a graphic designer and a network technician by now..

Also when i was younger i wanted to be in the Army.. silly thought that almost made me go to military college... anyway..
My dad still want me to go and do Military Service here.. though somehow they make a law that makes it mandatory now since you went 18.. (im 19 now)
But i'm not going :XD: if they would make me.. i would flee to other country or something >.> i would not do what these bastards wants.. anyway.. that's all i guess..

I'd like to be a tentacle monster which pleasure all the sexually attractive females of the human species, and is somehow able to bridge a gap between our world and the world of animation, so I'll have more biddies to tentabone.

Seriously though, I'm starting college soon for Psychology, but I'm doubting I'll be pursuing a career involving such things, I simply have an interest in it and know it would be beneficial to have completed for many other eventual careers.
I'm interested in Fashion, so I'm looking into that, or perhaps a career in music. I also eventually plan on exploring voice acting work, as I'm pretty good at doing voices. Though I've heard it often wouldn't pay enough to live comfortable from such a job, and is obviously inconsistent pay.
