What did you want to be when you grew-up?

Recommended Posts

When you were a kid and daydreamed about what you were going to be when you grew-up, what did you dream of?

I guess I started out like most thinking I'd be a pro athlete. My problem was I played every sport there was so I never became great in any! When I hit HS and college, I really had no idea what I wanted to be. I'd still be coaching if it paid enough...

Anyway, what about you?

Architect... turns out you have to be good at math. And math was my C- subject.

 

But I'm starting college back up in June. First will be a BA in Business Analytics, then a MBA... and hopefully if I don't get bored a Doctorate of Business Analytics.

 

High hopes. But it's time for a career change.

A country western singer.   I actually auditioned for a local radio station WDEN in Macon, Ga. to review one of my songs for recording. I didn't have the money to take the next step and no record label to grow with.  I guess I didn't want to pursue that dream hard enough and I'll never know now.

A lawyer and kept that until my senior year in college. Had a dual degree as an undergrad with a BA in US History and a BS in Accounting. Did well on the LSATs and got into two Ivy League schools for law school. Elected to defer a year and take a job in finance and never went to law school. Passed the CPA exam and got an MBA instead.

Depends on my age.  When I was in grade school, I wanted to be a veterinarian.  My mom thought I should be a doctor.  In high school I fell in love with math and chemistry, and I wanted to be a nuclear scientist... well, whadda ya know!!

A trumpet player in a major symphony orchestra. I was all state two years running and got into Northwestern which is a top music school. Much like a top athlete it didn't take me long to see what it takes to achieve my goal and to figure out that I lacked an essential ingredient- the talent.

 

My musical training has served me well through life. As a young adult I played in a big band. At seminary I earned some money teaching private lessons, church history and music history walked side by side in the Middle Ages making a course that killed most guys a cake walk for me and in my church body it's very helpful for a pastor to have musical knowledge- I can do a mean Gregoria's chant.

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

Hmm Pro Athlete for me, but I 4 sported in High School and should have concentrated on 1 or 2 if I was going to do that. At one point my other choice was be in a band....but those usually don't pay well and I don't have the musical talent.

I heard your song, then I played it backward, and I got my house back, my car back, and my dog back, it was a good song

1st, I wanted to be Al Kaline, then Alan Trammell. Next, Joe Perry.

Now, I'd be ecstatic to be Tim Herron... 🤣

I'm sure that when I was a kid I wanted to be a pro athlete of some kind, or maybe a fireman, but its so long ago I honestly don't remember.  If I'd had any sense, I'd have wanted to be retired.  In fact, that's what I want to be right now, retired!

My parents like telling the story of 4 year old downlowkey stating that he aspired to be a "city". Dare to dream.
