    Ok, Anna, since you asked....we had career day at our middle school and one of the classes was by a woman that sold Mary Kay and she looked so pretty and smelled good and she told us we could get a pink Cadillac......it just seemed so glamorous! On top of that I had an aunt that lived in Texas and when my mom told her my ambition she said I could stay with her when I came to Texas for the training they do. I had it all planned out!

    BTW, that's a very COOL gypsy picture, too!!
    Last week, Japanese scientists explaced... placed explosive detonators at the bottom of Lake Loch Ness to blow Nessie out of the water. Sir Godfrey of the Nessie Alliance summoned the help of Scotland's local wizards to cast a protective spell over the lake and its local residents and all those who seek for the peaceful existence of our underwater ally. ~ Napoleon Dynamite

    I wanted to be a teacher. I thought it was a cool job when I was young. I got to know it's actually quite tedious.

    Anyway, my younger brother wanted to become a doctor in the morning and soldier at night. I guess he's a little bit ambitious.

    Anna, cute picture.

    I remember in preschool some woman came to our class and talked about what we wanted to be when we grew up. I remember I told her and artist and a singer. That was my dream until 4th grade, where I decided I wanted to write. 8th grade I wanted to write AND teach. Now I have no idea what I want to do. I'm probably going to university in Rome, so I've been thinking about a language professor ... English, French ... something.

    I wanted to be a singer. I sang in choirs and a garage band as a teenager, then again in a pop band (just local, nobody famous) in my early thirties. Did a couple of teeny stints as a background studio vocalist. I also really wanted to be a rock journalist. But I ended up going the practical route and worked in the medical field.

    Mike, and others in the 14-18 age range who are interested in medicine and helping people. Maybe you can consider being an "explorer post" (the term may vary). They are volunteers who ride with EMTs and AEMTs and help out with basic first aid and CPR. This might help give you a little exposure to helping people and the hospital setting. They also go camping, etc. We had the 1418 EP where I used to live and some of them became EMTs.

    Good luck Mike! (Maybe you can give CPR to Buffy)

    When I was a kid I wanted to be a Mailman. I was always so happy to get anything in the mail. It made me feel so special. So I wanted to be the one who gave the other kids their mail.
