In Primary School I wanted to be either an Architect, Software Programmer, Research Scientist or Self-employed Designer.
In highschool, I'm still quite the same by the fact that I have a large variety of subjects I'm taking just because I still want to keep my options open and I don't know what I'll exactly want to go into. 😅

Those are quite fancy career paths for a primary school student.

I am still in school, wanting to become a writer but enrolling for a biology degree cos I need a stable side-job.

I am one of those people who find everything so interesting so I want to do everything....

When I was in Primary school, probably a doctor/nurse.
Year 7/8: Engineer
Year 9: Teacher (Primary school or history in secondary)
Year 10: Lawyer
Year 11: Forensic Scientist/ Film director

Have always wanted to work as an actor on the West End though.....

Haha I guess so, I was just interested in those things I guess because I saw them in media I interacted with at the time and had seen family in some of those careers.
Also, nice, I love writing myself (specifically short stories/other things but I don't know what you mean) and I really like Biology and have applied for A-level Psychology.
I hope things are going alright for you in your subjects.

Things going alright thank you! Hope same goes for you

That's cool, all my family members do boring stuff apart from one who's a secret agent.

By writing, I mean anything - short stories like you, as well as books (further I've gone is 7 chapters). They are mostly children's stories covering dark themes.

In Year 2 I decided that space was really cool, and I wanted to be an astrophysicist, though I called it "space scientist" back then.

I'm in Year 13 now and still following that dream, later this year I'll be studying Physics at Uni.
