    Veterinarian

    I remember in Kindergarten they asked all the kids what they wanted to be when they grew up and to draw a picture of it. I wanted to be a veterinarian and help all the animals. As I grew up, I realized I wouldn't be able to do that job because even if it was for the best, I...

    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.
