A teacher but I was always too thick for this, I some how ended up in set 4/5 for maths in an innercity school. Granted it was because I told the teacher when I started that school (it was half way through term) I was crap at maths, I last 2 weeks in that set though before moving to set 2).

I have also wanted to build PCs but I have my sights much higher than this now. I just want to be a web developer/project manager now.

But all that training and everything.
And i'm not sure whether i'd of been good enough. I would have been close though, but... well, i simply couldn't be that bothered about it after about 13/14.

When I was 4 I wanted to be a fireman.

Dunno why, I think I liked the idea of playing with huge water pistols.
