So, What Do You Want To Be?

Wed Oct 20, 2004 6:11 pm

This is mainly for the younger members on here who are still studying. Just out of interest, What do you want to be when you 'grow up'?

Come on, don't hold back

Can we ´grown ups´ also post something?  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
First of all I always wanted to work in aviation, and after having a few jobs in this sector circumstances made me change jobs. Now I´m working in the real estate business and really enjoy it. My dream now is to start an own agency in a not too distant future. I just want to gain more experience before making the big step. And aviation will always be my big hobby.

I am pretty close to graduating with a degree in accounting. What do I want to be?

Not an accountant, that is for damn sure.

I always hated that term..."when you grow up?"...always kinda made me feel immature and childish...but anyways, I am a 20 (almost 21) year old Junior at the University of Kansas studying History. My plan is to go to graduate school for Urban Planning, but I may, for kicks, get an MA in History first and then get an MUP in Urban Planning. I have a little time to decide still!

They make what you fly from the computer to the test flight. After that it's your job. Big grin

It's what I wanted to do since I was younger than you. Big grin

No plans to ever grow up but at some point I plan to be a farmer, boutique aniamls mainly - angora goats, alpacas, black sheep, that kind of thing - with a few cash crops like walnuts, olives, table grapes, lemons and such.

Oh and about 5 more kids just like the one I have now. Sounds like heaven to me !

Several possibilities I like the sound of:

1) pilot for JetBlue or Continental

2) pilot for an airline somewhere in Europe

3) pilot of a bizjet somewhere in Europe

Of course, those are all way down the road, and if none of them come I won't be heartbroken, but those are the ideal situations.
