What did you want to be when you were a kid?
What are you now?
>Wanted to be RAF Harrier pilot
>TFW unemployed, homeless, scizophrenic.
I'm not sure what I wanted, when I was really young I firstly wanted to be a power ranger, then later on I wanted to do stuff with games.
I'm not sure if I was more into the concept of running a game store or designing them but I specifically remember planning to sell games for a dollar less than everyone else to get all the biznez..

Deleted last post because of the tripcode
I don't know, I always wanted to be something new every year
I'm a musician now, but I'm planning to off myself once I make a few albums (I've only released an EP). I don't know how long I can force myself to live but I'm trying
Same here. I wanted to be a pilot too.
Sort of unsettling how many of us wanted to be pilots.
I'm currently a pool lifeguard. It's easy and stress free, but Im poor, no gf, khv live with my parents, and I cant seem to get a better job with my worthless BA degree..
Bro I've been looking into truck driving. It might be the closest thing to a dream job for me. Problem is, Im only 20 and have $0 to my name. I don't even have a regular drivers license yet. So how do I get my cdl? Is there a place that will teach me for free and then hire me?
An astronaut, or maybe a pilot.
I'm a welder now, I don't complain about it, it's kinda fun, and the pay is good.
I'm guessing your in the states, I'm in the UK, some places will take apprentices here, so you could look in to that, but 12 hours a night, alone, and at 145 pounds a shift the money isn't bad either
I wanted to make video games.
But I quickly found out I didn't actually want to make games. I wanted to be the "ideas guy" and that being that kind of guy is useless, so I dropped that idea pretty quickly.
I'm a NEET now.
now i want to be an artist, meanwhile im working towards a cs degree
wanted to be an engineer cuz mummy told me it makes good money
make electronic music, dj, work shit resteraunt job, go to community college, play video games
I just want to quit my fucking job and work on music more
I wanted to be a video game designer and as a teenager a writer. Right now I want to be a NEET and wait for a miracle to happen that'll lead me to making something people like and remember me for and then kill myself or find a job that can suit a drug addiction and then kill myself.
I wanted to play music. Ended up being first chair of my section in both middle school and high school (fuck yeah, low brass). I really enjoyed the teamwork aspect of every section working together to produce one idealized sound. My entire family just told me to give up being a musician or going to music school because its too difficult to earn a paycheck unless you are really good. This compounded with the fact that I "made too much noise" when I practiced meant that I actually didn't get to practice at all, but was just naturally adept at Tuba. I never realized that I actually did have talent at what I was doing at should have said "fuck it" and kept at it.
I still remember how to play my scales, but have nothing to play them on or anyone to play anything with.
Paleontologist or Pizza Delivery Driver.
Aspiring Artist, looking for other employment atm.
>I know you guys got that clever joke ready. You know the one. I'm gonna be nice and tell you, that if you post it, I will find out where you live, wait until you leave the house and take a huge buffalo chicken-induced doodoo on your living room floor.
Eyesight sucked too bad to be a real pilot became F-15 mechanic got to see pilots get in the closest thing to a mech.
I am now a tour guide and student
I wanted to have friends
My new ideal job would be in filmmaking but I have no idea where to start. I've enrolled on some free online courses that start soon but let's be honest, while I'll probably learn a few interesting things, it's not going to get me anywhere.
I was as aimless and unambitious as now back then, so I just answered one of the elementary school essays with wanting to be just a person.
I still failed, I guess.
I wanted to be an adventurer.
Now I'm a math major.
I wanted to be a pilot. Now I just wagecuck at a grocery store and will probably move up the ladder to a corporate cube farm position with the company.
A great artist.
A third year Biological Sciences Major.
I should have just gone with the useless degree I wanted.
I could have drawn porn for Patreon bux.
astronomer / astrophysicist
engineer/analyst for government science agency. hate it as it almost amounts to data entry and everything is so mired in bureaucracy/unnecessary procedure I cannot stand it. Work is very unfulfilling and is sparse to begin with.
Can't really leave to go to grad school due to borderline crap grades, nor do I have much experience in fields I might like working in. Don't really know what I want at this point. Thinking of just leaving and doing volunteer work/peace corps type work somewhere.
I always wanted to be the worlds greatest inventor.
>I would draw little sketches for concepts of new inventions in a memo book
>I would get magic 8 balls and shake them asking if I would be the worlds greatest inventor.
>I was going to make to make the world a better place...then I would rich and get lots of freinds and work with them to make more stuff while living in an advanced mansion I designed.
>Now I moved away and have one good friend that I hardly talk to because of school and work.
I still want to design stuff.
I love animals and watched that animal cop show on animal planet and wanted to be one for awhile. I'm now a 21 year old NEET that plays ps4, reads the bible, fights urges to fap, and contemplates suicide all day. I know the world is going to end soon but it really can't come soon enough. Fuck this gay earth
>lawyer or teacher
>after college I didn't know what I wanted anymore and scrambled for any job
I work for an airline and get screamed at all day.
have the right degrees, just need the extra credentials and experience
Just got fired from teaching pre-school part time.
Jokes on them though, I got accepted into animation school like two days ago.
don't quote me on this but my husband is about to get into truck driving and if you just sign on with a company for like two years, they train you and give you their CDL. Only problem is that the pay isn't as amazing as it could be if you just went and got the CDL independently or something like that.
but really what the fuck is there to buy in this big shitty world
if you're not a greedy materialistic fuck, truck driving is an extremely well-paying job no matter what and they haven't outsourced it to the brown people yet.
>Wanted to be an engineer
>math was easy
>math gets to be more and more tedious
>realize I either devote myself to boring ass numbers or fail
>always loved drawing, watching and talking about animation
>going to school for animation/graphic design
Probably gonna be poor but as long as I'm happy it's all good.
>Weatherman - I would draw imaginary countries and turn them into weather maps.
During late teens it was Doctor
Now I'm just a total fucking loser
