What kind of job/s did you want when you were growing up?
As for me, when I was 4 years old, I wanted to be a garbage truck driver.
At age 6, I wanted to be a commercial airline pilot.
At 14, I wanted another type of job.
And at 18, I wanted and still want to be a cop.

Up until March, I pretty much wanted to be a pilot. Then I discovered my partial colorblindness would prevent me from ever being a commercial pilot, and now I have to rethink what I want to do with myself...

I wanted to be a fighter pilot when I was a kid, its still a dream to fly in one. I was like 5-6 years old when both Iron Eagle and Top Gun came out, very impressionable to me, so was watching the F15s over Elmendorf AFB in ANC.
Pro hockey player, that was dashed upon reaching my teenage years. Highschool history teacher, now Im going to be inbetween jobs here in a month.

In order from a young age to current:
Airline Ops Management
Now, I'm happy to whore myself to whatever job pays well. I've worked in IT for almost nine years now, but I've never really enjoyed it. I wish I had the money when I was younger to pursue dream job number 1, but its way too late now
