First a teacher, then a doctor, then veterinarian, and now I'm back to teacher.

spiderman and astronaut :D

I always wanted to be in law enforcement and more specifically the FBI, having now done federal law enforcement for the past 5 years, I never want to do this again. Too much beaurocracy and redtape not to mention half of the crap we dealt with was retarded. I always felt bad interogating someone because they never knew how badly they were ******. I will never do this again. Time to start over and find something new that I can be proud of, **** police and the law.

A writer and a singer.

loved, accepted for whom i am..... and not hungry. everything else was a bonus! <br />

At first I wanted to be a teacher, then a medical assistant, but finally I changed my mind to a Nurse.<br />
I Hope to one day become one, I work hard each day to reach my dream...hopefully it doesn't end up just a wish.

I wanted to be a nurse because I liked the white outfits they're always wearing in cartoons and stuff... then I realized they had to deal with blood and things so I didn't want to anymore. After that it was an author/mom. Then an actress. Then a fashion designer. Then a comedian.

a layrwer or a doctor

Doctor, criminologist & lastly a comic artist. <br />
<br />

I wanted to be a pilot with hopes to be a space shuttle pilot. Then it was an ER doctor then Veterinarian. Instead I ended up being a programmer

a movie star! Much like Sabri. I think I just wanted to be famous, renound, well known not really a movie star, just have the perks to go with it hehe.<br />
<br />
Now I do a job I love, kinda feel famous from a lot of love in my life, so I feel as though I have lived out my dream kinda!<br />
<br />
I have a daughter that loves me, another baby on the way, a husband who also loves me and a family that all love me. Not bragging just saying I have a lot to be grateful for so to me that is sucess, being grateful I think too many people focus on what they don't have when they already have heaps in their life to be grateful for.<br />
<br />
I have many things in my life I wish I didn't, like memories and the like but hey, nobody is perfect and those led me to meet my wonderful husband so if I didn't have them, I would probably be miserable!<br />
<br />
Astranaut, now that would be cool! Hey amysangel, I taught english and it aint that great, lucky you didn't hehe.<br />
<br />
Oy yeah bubblegum, I would so do life in that order, cool! One thing I will say about dancers though, 90 percent *******, I have done that too, I think I am stuffed up as a result of too many ******* together hehe. Still that carrier in that order would be cool in my honest opinion, you should give it a go in that order, welll maybe start with dancer, Hollywood is a bit much, that would be impossible, well maybe not! Go for the stars I say!<br />
<br />
