Hello.

What do you want to be when you grow up??

My self I want to be a heart surgeon. I has always wanted to be a heart surgeon, since 4-5years age my parents say.

I think that I will be it, I have good grades and I like the school.

We will see what happens. In about 4years I will know. Not so long time remaining.


So what do you want to be and why???

A wise person once told me: Growing old is manditory, growing up is optional! Even though I worked as a ramper once for about six weeks, I would still love to do it. I have wanted to since I was 3 years old. Either that or truck driving, but I would have to be single for that.

Weird question for us  old -ish. As a kid I had the same dreams as the other boys, so I wanted to be a truck driver, locomotive engineer, etc. I ended up with a degree in electrical engineering and I'm spending my time as a technical geek first in medical instrumentation business and now in brewing quality assurance.

That's a job I could get behind. Does it involve any personal sampling?



My career goals have changed so many times since I was a teenager it is impossible to really answer that question anymore. And I suspect that it will continue to change over time, despite the fact I am working on my PhD in a fairly specialized area.

Are you good at learning by heart (pun not intended)? You'll need exceptional willpower if you are not.

I wanted to be a pilot, applied at LH in 2004 (worst bit of timing I've ever done) and didn't get a spot in their scheme, didn't want to take a €40 000 risk doing it on my own money and stuck with medicine. But some day, I'll get a PPL... needn't be an ATPL.

No. It's what I want to do when I grow up. I have to finish my midlife crisis before I can apply. It would be my second career.

When I was your age, B747forever, I never in my wildest dreams would have imagined that I'd become a translator and an academic in Belgium. When I was a teenager, I wanted to move back to the US (where I spent my childhood) and become a pilot (NOT military!). Life has decided otherwise. I wanted at some period to be a surgeon, chef, musician, actor, journalist, biologist. All those went up in smoke when I tried them. (Always try first!). Anyhow, choosing a profession needn't mean you have to stick to it for all your life. I'm in fact very close to dropping everything I've ever done and starting over now, again. Life is unpredictable, and by the time you're my age you can very well be geographically and mentally cut off from everything you're familiar with today. I certainly don't regret a whole lot of my choices and the coincidences that led me to where I am.  Smile

My dream was to be a pilot ever since I could dream. But now I'm a student teacher after I began to realize that teaching is the only thing I'd ever want to do as a job. It's great to imagine being a commercial pilot, but I wouldn't want to live that kind of life. I've been a glider pilot since I was 15, and this way I can teach as a profession and fly as a hobby. In 1 year I'll be done with college and I'll be a high school teacher then. I hope someday in 30 years I'll look back and say I've made the right decisions. I do hope so.

Grades are not guarantee of anything. To be a good surgeon you have to have a great deal of talent and be exceptionally gifted and skilled with your hands. You either have it or you don't.

People used to ask this question in regards of different "personal sampling", not beer tasting. Therefore I'm a bit confused. But if you're asking about beer tasting, at the lineup it's up to you, when you test a new product or change in the recipe, you have to drink the whole sample. Same goes for the drinkability testing. However, considering your general dislike of our products, I can imagine you'd spit.

Actually, similar to you i wanted to be a surgeon, Nuero though, only because it sounded better than Cardio lol. My mind changed several times between that, RAF and driving trucks.

Now made my choice and its the RAF. Leaving for RAF Cranwell this feb Big grin

CIA,FBI,Secret Service something like that for now. But my mind has changed alot. Used to want to be a doctor than a airline pilot for many years and now this. I still always think about the airline pilot thing though or maybe Air Force pilot. In time we will see.
But what do I want to work with?




Or maybe just  Wink
but hopefully not. But who knows what im going to want to do in a few years. I am still in college to figure that out.
