What did you want to be as a kid when you grew up?

And are you doing something completely different now?

KK - I also used to be indecisive, but now I'm not so sure.
I always wanted to be a fireman but don't like heights. I still took the test and they made me climb a ladder, loop my leg through one of the rungs and throw myself backwards. Tttpppphhhhh (that's a pretend fart if you're unsure). I am now a quality assurance engineer zzzzzzz

I wanted to be a Dr of the medical variety.

I am one of the science variety which tbh is a lot safer for everybody

I wanted to be a nurse or a teacher, quite boringly, I got to be both. Nursing and teaching nursing!

I suppose if I was born in another time, I may have gone for carpentry - I love the smell of freshly sawn wood and love creating things. I also love making clothes and the smell of new cloth,

When I say "quite boringly" I don't mean I was bored with the job(s), I have enjoyed my career. 

To end up as an audio describer though is rather more interesting I suppose.

I wanted to be a vet and I am not one No one to blame but myself BUT I have two wonderful children that I would not change for anything. Once they grow up I will study and get there

When I was a kid I wanted to be either Han Solo, Indiana Jones or the worlds greatest footballer.

I'm none of those things.

I wanted to be a pilot flying something like the Milennium Falcon but ended up being Darth Vader's daughter.  Life sucks sometimes.

When i was very young I wanted to be a Channel swimmer.

When I was older I wanted to be a vet.

I now have nothing to do with animals but work in the health care industry.  I will be swimming the Channel in July

I wanted to be a Dentist, but ended up an Engineer by accident

02/12/2012 at 15:15

I've been a technician, a scientist, a technologist (whatever that is) and an engineer.  But basically doing the same job.

The engineer bit makes me laugh.  What do I know about engineering?

02/12/2012 at 15:20

I suppose as soon as you tell people you're an Engineer, they assume you fix a washing machine really.

As I child I wanted to be a farmer (despite us not owning any land).

I ended up as a food factory worker, chicken farm worker, and call centre operative and am now a law student.
