And sometimes you close your eyes and you see the place where you used to live

What did you want to be when you'd grow up?

I think we all changed our minds several times about this during our childhood. As far as I remember, I wanted to be an aeroplane pilot, a singer/rapper, a fiction writer, and a baseball player.

Actually hold on, I just remembered talking about this with my cousin when we were kids and agreeing that getting paid to take a shit would be ideal.

Veterinarian and paleontologist (cuz Jurassic Park) are what stick out.

The other day I was outlining my career plans and my mom said it sounded just like when I was a kid and I'd be like "I wanna do X and then I'm gonna do Y and then I'll do Z..."

First thing that came to my mind, too.

In response to the question, I wanted to be a cowboy, a police officer, a veterinarian, or a hockey player. Now I'm a truck driver.

When I was young, all I wanted to be was older.

Now that I'm old, I would really like to be younger...

I know of someone's daughter who had a friend that genuinely aspired to be a teen mom.

Probably the most depressing thing I'd ever heard in my life.

I wanted to be a teacher when I was really young and now it even looks I'm gonna become one, but I'm not at all so excited about it as when I was a kid. Then I wanted to be a musician which I am as well but not nearly as busy as I would like to be. Now I really want to learn music properly and write soundtracks for games and movies. That would be pretty awesome. I'll be poor and die at 40 but fck it

I never really thought about what I wanted to do when I grew up. I liked being a kid too much.

And now I'm 22 and a freshman in college. I got no idea.

Successful musician would be nice. Not a rock star, just enough to live on. Novelist would be fun. Op-ed guy. Idk
