What did you want to be?

Posted on: June 11, 2008 7:47 pm me nosy (go ahead..I won't mind)...

We all had dreams of what we wanted to be when we grew-up so what was yours? I'm kicking it off again seeing as it is only fair since I asked. I had hoped to become a astronaut/ super-hero like Wonder Woman (the spinning thing she did was cool, would practice that move hours on end )...I remember dressing up when I was a tot my Mum bought me a costume around Halloween and I wore it almost everyday for a year. I was CONVINCED I was her. After getting out of that phase I wanted to grow up and become a spy/ treasure hunter, then it was grow up and become a professional ballet dancer. Alas I wish I could have achieved one of those...still think being Wonder Woman would be awesome...

What did you want to be?

I have been awful and neglected my blog as of late... but ....with so much to get done and so little time it's been....CRAZY! Anywho, isn't is fun to remember those childhood dreams and a little sad too that we didn't become the superhero, rockstar, etc? That's why we have Halloween however...a day to be exactly what we always wanted. Then again...maybe you are a superhero to someone or a rockstar for that matter. Quite possibly someone in your life thinks that you are a star in whatever it is you dared to dream.  All I have to say now is keep dreaming no matter how old you get.......

Ah I had a deep moment just now so please pardon me....deep as a puddle but it is more than I am used to. My head is spinning. lol

Well TIA When I was young , a few hundred years ago, I wanted to be a shrink. I wanted to specialize in dealing with orphans and neglected children. We have 1.6 millions that go without food or a home everyday. IN THIS COUNTRY. I went to school to do it but then stumbled upon my current occupation during graduate school.

What did you want to be?

I wanted to be a professional roller derby player. I thought it would be fun to skate around and pound on people for money. Problem: can't skate. Now, I just want to win Mega Millions and take my winnings on the road and play craps at every casino in the world.

If all the money is gone once I reach every casino, then so be it...I will die happy!

What did you want to be?

For a long time I wanted to be the first female pitcher in the MLB. Of course I sure they would never let a girl do that at least not in the 80's or 90's. You played softball if you were a girl. Actually had a good curve ball at one time and a slider of all things. But then I wanted to be a number of other things. Can't think of right now.

My child has dreams of being this or that , and her plans change daily. I tell her she can be what even she wants .

>>>I also wanted to be a singer/ songwriter/ drummer/ gutarist... if the lack of talent is not a problem I am ready for my big break<<<

Lack of talent has never been an impediment to success in entertainment (or any other field for that matter)

Yes at 5'7" it would be rather difficult to be a Center...and well...totally unfair you didn't get to acheive your dream. I wanted to also be a supermodel...only lack the looks. A shame.
