I don't really know yet, but I will do something that I enjoy. I don't want to get stuck in a job that I hate because it pays well or whaterver. I'm not much of a people person, so I probably won't pick something where I have to be around helping people all the time.

sounds to me like the peace corps is calling for you,, they ship you to all sorts of cool places, and once you get used to the wretched poor people who live there you mind even enjoy it.

I don't know what I want to do...
I want to help people, but I also don't want to give up on horses and that will require a good paying job. I've thought about being a doctor and joining a program like Doctors Without Borders. I would love to be in some sort of musical production, even just for fun, not as a job (what I really want is some voice training...). I'd love to ride competitively, that would be wonderful, but I don't have the money to do that.

I have no clue.

I want to be a professional dancer. Ballet..

Or a singer. And be on Broadway.

Or a famous runway model. I'm in the school right now.

Or a leader in the Animal Rights movement.

However, what I *am* going to be when I grow up, is a journalist. :speachless:

Thats what the college major says; thats what I plan on.

In my ideal life, I'd be a house wife. No joke. That's not a possibility though, so I'll do something else. I'm pretty sure I'm going to be an elementary school teacher (that's what I'm going to school for.) I'd love to do some freelance photography. It's my all-time favorite hobby.

The answer to this varied with me for a long time. I wanted to be a psychologist from 6-th grade to half-way through my sophmore year, but now I've finally figured out I want my career to be in theatre/acting. I really want to go to a Performing Arts school [Tisch at NYU or Columbia in Chicago], and then go one to do anything related with acting. I love theatre, and as long as I can make enough money to pay rent and live then I'm alright. If you find a job you love you'll never work a day in your life, and acting is something I really, really love to do. Theatre, Film, Televesion, aaaaaanything.

That, and I've always wanted to write. All the good ideas I get never seem to come to fruition though. Hm. Just add that onto the list of things I want to do before I die. Act in a show where I get paid to do so, and publish something I've written.

I went through that modeling school too. Still with them. They are the ones that really made me realise that I wanted to act as a career. They are sending me to L.A. in about four and a half weeks for a convention to get a head start. It's soooooo worth it. Goodluck to you!

Dunno yet. I'd really like to be a foreign diplomat. I'm studying political science in university, and I might go to law school... we'll see how it goes. All the "adults" in my life keep telling me that I should run for prime minister.

I wanted to become a psychiatrist but I am far too lazy to achieve the grades that would be necessary for this over here.

I also may not join the police, GSG 9 or SEK for health reasons (my spine did not grow together with my ass, which makes a X-Ray look pretty funny... there's a gap of about 1 cm).

I toyed with the idea of getting a professional geek, but I believe that somehow, I will not succeed, it doesn't feel right.

Driven by both an urge to break peoples' necks and my friends' constant telling me that I give real good massages, I will go into the healing stuff, instead.

Whatever the english expressions might be.

A lawn mower, I've always wanted to go on one of those little tractors and cause mayhem.

But to be entirely serious, I'd like to go into clinical pyshcology and deal with either substance abuse problems or personality disorders.

I hope to be an artist or a filmmaker of some sort. I'm working on a novel, so I wouldn't mind making a career out of writing either.

I want to be a combination of MFS and Frank Zappa, but with a bionic arm, and maybe like a built in wheat grass machine or something like that. That way, I could post a lot on spacefem and play guitar amazingly at the same time. Nothing else in life would matter.

Want to have a secret superhero princess agency to save the world? Dude.

Actually, I want to be a psychotherepist or maybe a hobo, but there aren't trains to hop anymore. Le sigh.
