    Ever since I was little I wanted to be an Orthodontist. I'm pretty sure it was because my sister's orthodontist owned a Porsche, and I always wanted to have one.

    I even made up business cards for it and everything...

    it changed once every 2 years or so. teacher was one...then architect...then vet/zoo keeper...and when i started realizing the choice was a little more complicated and there were many years of school invovled in them i decided for a while i just wanted to be stay at home mom.

    Don't know. I still haven't grown up yet.
    JK. All kidding aside, all I really wanted to be was a husband and father. Vocation wasn't as important. Guess that's why I'm still slaving away as a shipping and receiving dude.

    When I was [much] younger, I wanted to be a drummer in a rock band, or one of those all night truck driver or something, seriously... Wild, and not very meaningful. Well, those were it and I'm glad I'm not the same person anymore.

    These days, I just want to be a 'good' person, and I think that takes a lifetime!

    But seriously, I wanted to be a doctor.

    From as far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be an adult.

    Seriously.

    I'm still working on it.

    To be a doctor but that was when I was around 7 yrs old. Now though, I'm still inkling to be a UPS delivery guy. Just something about that uniform that makes me want to wear it

    a doctor ... and then a phys-ed teacher ... and then a doctor again ... and then (and now) a professional stage manager ... so, naturally I'm a journalist

    Always a singer. However, there were bouts of also wanting to be an archeologist, and towards middle school, an author. I'd still love to be an author or a singer. When I was in HS, I tried to see myself, and I saw myself as influential, someone who made social changes. I don't know if who I was then would be dissapointed in who I am now.

    A junkie. No seriously, I wanted to be a vet until I went to college and realized I that emotionally I couldn't handle it. Now, I want to be a Rollergirl.

    I wanted to be Canada's first female Prime Minister, but then Kim Campbell beat me to it, and she wasn't even elected! I changed my mind and decided to be a lawyer. When I realized it wasn't the profession for me, I again changed my mind and wanted a career in politics. Now, I want to be a teacher...of English first, and maybe Buddhism in the future. (if I ever qualify)

    Doctor, landscape architect, marine biologist, nurse, gymnast, artist. I still don't know, but being an adminstrative assistant isn't the end of the career ladder for me!

    When I was younger, I always wanted to be a teacher. I would always play school with my friends and I would be the teacher.

    When I was very little, I wanted to be a lion tamer. Or a mermaid - you can imagine my disappointment when I grew hair on my legs instead of scales...
