    I Was Always Very Indecisive.

    I wanted to be a cop, a vet, a musician, a surgeon; I coudn't make up my mind! All I knew is that I wanted to be extremely wealthy, and retire my parents. I wanted to help people, and I know I still have the opportunity to follow through with at least one or two of those wishes.
