    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.

    Who Knows

    As a child, I always wanted to grow up to be a cowboy. Camping out on the open range. Having adventures and shooting bad guys. I couldn't afford the horse living in the city so that plan faded. I later wanted to grow up to be like my father. He seemed to be too unhappy with his...
