    I've wanted to be a vet, a microbiologist (during the swine flu period I decided I wanted to specialise in virology), an author, a politician, a translator, an RSPCA warden, a pharmacist, a seismologist, and one night a few weeks ago I just looked into the sky and declared I wanted to be some sort of space scientist.
    It's really annoying because I've never had some sort of passion that runs deep, but I'm in Year 11 now and I guess I've still got a while before I decide the path I take..

    That's great haha.

    Primary school was all about wanting to be a footballer. Since secondary school I've only wanted to be a musician, and I'm going to do commercial music in September (: !

    An artist. Then a photographer. Then a graphic designer. When I was in Y11 I wanted to be a helicopter pilot, but only because I read in a 'futures' careers booklet that they earnt £40,000 a year, and I thought this was the highest salary EVER

    Now I'm an English teacher. But I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up.

    I was interested in surprisingly sophisticated stuff at a young age; I've regressed.

    It started off with engineering. I didn't really know what this entailed. I had a vague idea that it might involve cars, but I didn't much like cars.

    Then I wanted to be a geneticist. Most of nursery was spent drawing pictures of my magnificent cloning machine, that would use DNA from a wooly mammoth, force it through some pipes, some lights would flash and a fully grown mammoth would appear out of it, a bit like a microwave.

    Then I was determined to own a sweet shop, for obvious reasons.

    Then I was determined to own a toy shop, for obvious reasons.

    Then I wanted to be a teacher, despite hating my teachers immensely - this around year 5.

    This turned into a determination to be a Doctor until year 10, when I realised that I was **** at science. I did entertain the possibility of joining the armed services, but then realised that I rather enjoyed being alive.

    Then I jumped about between law, social work, journalism and teaching.

    Now I'm settling with teaching.

    I think I've wanted to be a teacher for most of my school career although there was a short stint where I wanted to be a heart surgeon.

    In primary school I wanted to be an English teacher. When I was in Year 8 I alternated between lawyer and author, but now I'm back wanting to be a teacher, although now I want to teach Maths
