What did you wanna be when you grew up, /r9k/?

What went wrong?
>sports journalist
>journalism industry fell through the floor

My first day of journalism school I switched majors after being in a class with 30 other kids who all wanted to be sports journalists
I wanted to be an NHL hockey player really badly. After school I would be outside the rest of the day in the driveway shooting pucks. I went to skating camps in the summer, attended every practise every year, watched hockey every night and studied what my favourite players were doing. It was a serious obsession. By the time I was 13 it was obvious I was not good enough to play in the OHL which is basically where you have to play as a teenager if you want to make the NHL. So I said it fuck it and I haven't exorcised or played sports of any kind for the last 10 years.

>can't support life having no income
To be in the military

I realized it sucks to die and kill others

Nothing yet, I'm still going at it.
As a kid? A fireman or an astronault.
When I was a teenager I wanted to be a lawyer.

So I became a lawyer.

I wanted to be a biochemist and help develop the next round of biological weapons.

Then I learned I was rubbish at chemistry and would rather not go down in history as "American Chemical Ali". That and viruses are more interesting, anyway.

>What went wrong?

nothing. i am currently a neet, i have achieved my goal.
I was Completely serious, up until I was 19 and my eye sight got really shit due to sitting at a computer day after day. I had planned to get a PhD in aerospace engineering (inb4 /sci/ memes) and work in the ESA, it's a shame; considering I got a GPA of about 4.1 (it was ages ago, I can't remember exactly) before I dropped out.

Feels bad man.
I think I wanted to be a marine biologist, or some bullshit like that.
Became a chef instead.

Still no gf, feels bad sometimes and I don't entirely love what I do. I'm very indifferent, which in a lot of ways is worse.
If I despised my job, I would have a reason to try and turn my life around.

I wanted to be an American.

Instead I was born on a tiny Mediterranean island to parents who never travelled.

I have the education to get a six figure salary in the states, and enough cultural knowledge to blend in well enough with murrican folks that I'll be considered one of them.

But I have no friends and don't know how to travel, so I will die a poor man in a third world country.

Americans often tell me "just come here", but that is the first worlder's equivalent to "just b urself dude :)"

I wanted to be a god emperor, ruling over humanity like a loving father.

I'm on my way.

I just wanted to be in a decent metal band and have fun playing music.

I suppose I still could, but I'm too lazy to practice, and too socially inept to form a band.

I was born in 86. I always wanted to become a flying wizard. Guess what. I got half my wish. ;)

When I was a kid I wanted to be a chef at one point. I realized early on that I'm shit at cooking and impatient, plus serving customers who get pissed and yell at the poor waiters when their meal isn't fast enough would suck the joy out of it.

In fifth grade, I wanted to be an actor, but that dream died quickly for some reason, because for all of middle school, I wanted to be a game developer. I heard that some offices are hell, so I thought I'd be an indie developer, then I realized that for every succesful indie game, millions more never even get recognized or even exit developement.

In early high school, I had no idea. Then, near the end of sophmore year, I realized I want to become an actor and voice actor, and this is still my dream despite TONS of competition. I'm looking for work, but so far I'm not having much luck. So far the only people who want amateurs are at castingcall.club. All the jobs on the site are unpaid and they all seem to be autism projects like "MLP fandub" or "generic anime #18402 American fandub".

If I can be in successful movies, TV shows, and cartoons, and get rich doing it, I can die happy.

I wanted to be an animator. Hand drawn. That was my big dream. By the time I grew up the entire industry changed. It's mostly 3D now. Only a few companies in the USA still do hand-drawn animation, and I'm not weeb enough to live in poverty as an animator in japan. I also learned as an adult that the US animation industry is extremely competetive.

I decided to be a computer engineer and programmer instead. I can make good money off of that even if I'm not the best. About the same dosh I'd get by working at pixar. I don't mind it. It feels artistic in its own way.
Nothing. I was afraid of becoming an adult.

what was i thinking?
Oh god dude.

I actually made it into the industry just in time for it to collapse. It's been a fucking nightmare. One day I had a staff job at a magazine, the next I was covering events for free just to get a press pass so I could keep my portfolio current.

I'm in PR now, it's a billion times better. It's exactly the same work, you're just openly biased and make 10 times as much.
trash truck driver. turns out even that is out my league.
I didn't even want to grow up.. Even when I was six, I feared my parents to get old, my brothers to leave the house, my grandparents to die, that comfortable life to end.. I had no dreams, just wanted to stay in the moment as long as possible.

15 years later and I was totally right.. I never changed. I want to be 6 again, on vacation with my parents.. Looking at ancient castles, playing in the grass and in the water. As a child you were happy because living was new, your parents were happy because you were new and you excited them. Excitement is less now because you've seen too much, in every aspect; you've become one of the old guys.

Just some underachieving, bored, white upper-middle class weed addict now

I always wanted to be a movie director.
I was quite famous in the past as an e-celeb but I lost all of my SEO rankings when an ex deleted all of my videos 1 by 1 off my account.
So now im a nobody in a sea of other nobodies and people who had lower SEO ranking than I had are now millionaires and their followers make their seo ranking raise exponentially.

I mean they make something and 10,000 people see it or 100k and I make something and like 300 people will see it and the system never thinks im important because my stuff is astronomically less valuable because of how the system only regurgitates and builds its own content.

TLDR wanted to be a director but got fucked over by gf and now cant ever be important again because I lost my position at the top of the pyramid scheme.

I wanted to get a journalist degree and when I went to class all my teacher cared about was some fucking superficial writing style where everything was SUPER RAINMAN AUTIST MODE and you had to check a book to see how to capitalize or word something because THE BOOK SAID SO.

I was like none of this is important and its inefficient and mindless in its process. It doesnt generate revenue or clickbait interest and does nothing but waste time.

I also wanted to write a story about how we discovered the first ever exoplanets in our universe and we had official confirmation of the possiblity of other planets like ours existing.

The first hope of possible life throughout our universe. I thought it was a beautiful romantic and crowning achievement in human history. BUT NAH I NEED TO WRITE A STORY ABOUT LE BASKETBALL TEAM

ive never wanted to be anything.
i used to say i wanted to be a doctor when i was very little, but only because i thought i had to say something and being a doctor sounded kinda cool.
Is this a coincidence or are his views pretty much align with the red pill subreddit? Different guy than the one you replied to btw, but I'm taking interest in this.
We were engaged at the time and she just decided to go into my room and access all my shit FOR NO REASON and deleted all of my shit.

Not much later she got brutally raped at machete point and got stds and I dumped her the same day and Ive been single ever since.
I still dont feel like it makes up for what she did but it brings a smile to my face every time I think about it.
yes ive been fucked up ever since i was 4 yrs old. My brother who was 12 at the time thought it was funny to show me porn and I got hooked on it ever since. I started masturbating at 4 years old and would cum pee sometimes
She sounds like one crazy bitch anon. The fuck was she at to get raped with a machete in her neck?
when i was like 6 i wanted to be a racecar driver
that evolved into astronaut
then i turned 9 and started teaching myself to code, and i've wanted to be a software developer ever since
now i'm a junior computer science / software engineering double major and enjoying it thoroughly
I kind of fell into it after journalism. I specialized in automotive stuff, and started hanging around at the tuning shop of a guy I knew and helping out. It eventually turned into a job.

I'm actually back in college now. I've had a lot of better, higher-paying companies express interest in me after my work at the old shop, but I never finished my degree and they can't hire me without one. (I got into journalism on the back of my photography and writing work and dropped out to go full-time, before the industry collapsed.)

Not OP, but they're not as bad as you think. A lot of sports journalism is background stuff that's reasonably interesting, and aside from that, he might be a photog and not a writer, in which case sports is the best thing to cover.

Studying chemical engineering now so it's the closest thing to being a scientist
I feel like a lot of us did this, I figured I'd kill myself before I was 18, but 21 and still haven't done it yet..
I didnt know what I wanted to be so I guess that's what happened.
I only wanted to be like my dad, have a decent job, a nice wife, a regular house, an average car and children, and now i've realized that i am never going to live like that, i am never going to tell my kid the jokes he used to tell me, i am never going to play with anyone the way he used to play with me, no one kid will look up to me the same way i looked up to him, i'll probably die alone, and it feels bad man

>I'm looking to become an actor, but that business is tough as fuck to break into
My friend said its all about who's fucking who which is why movies are all terrible and the actors are all terrible and shoved into the movies. Also he said that most of the time people shove their names onto things or change scripts entirely even sometimes just making them up on set which is how you get shit like Blood Rayne.

shed leave our apt and refused to work a job and just go to random people's house parties drinking until she was so drunk shed just pass out on the ground and shit and call me and be like IM AT A PINK HOUSE. The day she was raped, we had like 5 people over that were her friends and she randomly disappeared without saying anything. Nobody knew where she was and apparently she went barefoot in nov. at night like 9pm to meet a guy who refused to meet her at the apartment. She walked a block down the road to an abandoned construction site with no street lights to meet him.
Then once in the car he drove further into the construction stuff and pulled a machete on her and raped her. Took her to the hospital and sat with her for a few hours for rape kit.

I think everyone knew I was destined for complete failure when I told the class I wanted to be a taxi driver, I was 10 then.

We were all sat in a circle going around talking about our futures. The popular kids went the typical route of wanting to be a football player, a nurse, a veterinarian, a doctor, a teacher, the normal things kids think of.

While they were answering I was thinking really hard about myself, I understood to be realistic, that I wasn't going to be a football player because I didn't really like it, was not going to go into medicine because I enjoyed logic problems like the autist I was. In a spark of autismal genius I stumbled upon the notion of taxi driver. What's not to like, right? You sit around all day, okay money, talk to a lot of people, listen to music. with this I could sustain myself, not stress myself and have time to do things. It's like being my own boss.

When I said it to the class everyone just looked, including the teacher. No words, no reactions, I think they expected it. My teacher called in my parents that week.
I was a little spoiled shit that wanted to do nothing all day but fuck all and video games

Look at the dream come true, fucking kill me
I wanted to be a superhero that beats up villains but when I beat up school bullies and got boners from it I realized I was the villain the whole time.
