What do you want to be when you grow up? Yeah... I know its a cliche question and what not, but I'm curious.

I'd like to be happy when I grow up.

You mean "Grow older" don't you? Or do you pesonally feel that you haven't matured enough emotionally?

General question.

BY the time I "grow up" I wish to have a more mature outlook on life. That and I want to join the peace corps and travel the world to study and live amongst various cultures. Basically I want to learn about as much of the world as I can before I expire.

:ton: you know what I mean don't you?

I say I'd like to be happy because in the end... its not the job that really matters. I can be just as happy being a fine dining server as I could be if I was building computers.

I've been wanting to go to Italy and ride a gondola, visit Australia and do some scuba diving and surfing (same at Hawaii)

if only there was a convenient way of doing so which didn't require allegiance to the military or Peace Corps - or take massive amounts of personal money - or passports.. grrrrr regulations
I will never grow up:ton:

I absolutely love my archaeology classes! I geeked out when our Professor mentioned Tiwanaku and Lake Titicaca. It is one of many career options I am considering.

I'm still bouncing a few things back and forth in my head, like:

1. Microbiologist/Immunologist

2. (Video Game) Programmer

3. Engineer

4. Pretty much anything to do with Spanish

I've been leaning towards #1 for quite a few years though, and it's what I've currently based my high school courses around.http://i44.************/2s9b21f.jpg

I thought more of: "When I grow up, I'll be stable. When I grow up, I'll turn the tables." a la, Garbage. :p

But yeah, I would love to become a journalist or a TV presenter or something. :) But I doubt I could become a TV presenter because I'm not, "pretty" enough.

I wanna have a good job, a beautiful house and a partner I love, and go travel around the world and do good things to people around with my partner.

I know, its stupid, but that's I wish for when I'm grown up.

And be happy while at it, and thankful to God.

I'd like to be a world traveller, that's the main thing. I'd like to be known for it as well, but that's really not as important. When I'm on my death-bed and I'm able to say I've travelled the whole world, I'll be happy. :)

I want to be perfectly healthy and happy when I grow up with enough money to pay the bills. :D

If you're talking about a career, I want to be all of these:

Actor; Director; Writer; Drama Teacher; Movement Director; Workshop Leader

I love the performing arts, and at first I only wanted to be an Actor since I was little, but then I realised that if you work in the performing business, you're self-employed; you can be more than one thing. I love directing theatre mainly (especially abstract and physical theatre), so I don't think I would ever direct a movie or something on TV, just act in it. I love writing, so I think I would either like to write scripts or books or both. Teaching drama would be another thing I would love to do because, where I live, there's hardly any drama classes in schools or drama clubs, so I'd love to reach out to younger aspiring performers and teach them what I know. :D And being a Workshop Leader is pretty much the same as wanting to be a Drama Teacher, except I think I would try to run workshops mainly for serious performers. In a recent experience, I've taken part in a lot of emotional exercises while in drama workshops, so I now love doing that; getting an Actor to be really in touch with their emotions for a certain genre and to develop a scene from the exercise. A Movement Director is just a person who teaches movement and physical theatre in drama.

Long post I know, but I wanted to go in-depth so I could bore you all. :p

I'm in school to become a paramedic, I'm unsure if it's exactly what I want to do, so I'm taking my pre-req classes at the moment. I have until August to decide, then I'd have to wait another 5 months for the term after.. it's so difficult deciding what you want to do. :(

I hope that in the years to come, I find out exactly what I want to be when I am older, because I am not quite sure yet. But I hope I can get into a good college and maybe get a scholarship somewhere. I am interested in Medicine so maybe a doctor but I am not sure which area to go into.

I was pondering over in MGC yesterday about breaking the concept of being a member of "civil" society and making my own way a la some sort of island tribe. Live in a hut on the beach at some island, with my surfboard - be happy doing the things that I love without having to have a vacation pay to cover some house and car and what not. The way I see it.. you can't really live life if you are having to work all the time. Not living life = not being happy. The way I see it.

Exactly, I hate routine. I was looking at the people around me on the train the other day. Every Monday they get up between 5-7am, get ready go to work, work, come home to the same place every day to their average live, then go to bed and repeat all over again.

They will still be doing that in a month’s time, and most likely years from now. That’s fine if that works for you, but it would bore me to tears, heck going to college for 4 days a week drives me mad the thought of that being me till I’m 65 makes me want to die
.
I want to live life, really live life, I want to make a difference to something.
While I think a good career is important I don’t want that to be the main aspect of my life.

And thats enough of my rambling. :)

Personally...I'd like to have a more mature perspective on life in general. I want to learn to move on and disconnect from past relationships, and work hard towards my goals.

As I already said in the "ambitions" thread a while back, I want to mean something to society, and be good at whatever it is I do to serve it. I want to be a part of dealing with serious problems.

I want to travel and make a difference whilst working in a job that doesn't rely on routine, boring and menial tasks, for now I'm interested in being a diplomat, that seems to tick many boxes. Later on I'd like a family but I'm not sure when.

I'm right there with you. Routine's a ***** ! If only I could take the car out for a ride...just any ride, any wild activity...GRRRRR!!! No, I have to go to sleep now and go to uni tomorrow then go back home and repeat the cycle for a week.

At the moment, im doing my gcses and just chosen what a-levels to take. Which sparked up similar discussions, yet I really don't know what I want to do. In the end I based my subject choices on those subjects that I enjoyed.

Many however had very specific subject choices for certain career paths, and for alot of people theese were based around money.

and when asked "do you not want a good job" I realised that although i want a good job, for me it would be a job I enjoy rather than something that gives me money.

So Im just going to say I want to be happy, having a very low self-esteem means that, that is all I strive for.
