Remember when you were little and people would ask "what do you want to be when you grow up"? Are you doing that now?

Surgeon. Because money.

For the benefit of myself and anyone who might end up requiring surgery, I have stayed well clear of medicine. I'm also far less inclined towards picking a career just because of a high salary.

Probably a singer.
I probably didn't realise back then that I can't sing to save my life, so that was never gonna happen.
A while later I changed my mind and wanted to be an author. That may still be possible if I do finish writing a book I started.

I wanted to be a jockey, and I'm picking it up again after I finish med school and have the salary ( I'm currently finishing 6th form ) to pay for it. Doctor full time, hopefully owning a horse at some point in the future??

I wanted to be a doctor as a child! Then as i grew up i changed my mind and wanted to be things like an author, musician, director of photography, then i drifted back to medicine a couple of years ago, and finally have decided to go into cancer research so it’s kinda similar to my initial wish to be a doctor

I wanted to be a teacher. I might end up actually pursuing that after realising nursing isn’t for me

Hah, I wanted to be the guy on the pizza counter in Asda...I’m dead serious. For some reason I thought it’d be really fun to put toppings on pizzas all day. I actually DID get an interview for the pizza counter in Sainsbury’s, but it didn’t work out.

I am pleased to say that I successfully failed in my career ambitions and am now working in a slightly more interesting role as a Civil Servant.

"scientist" which then later became chemical engineer.
... then I dropped out of the college and changed to another to do Business and Social Sciences because I was too anxious. Killed the dream LOL
