Fantasy chosen occupation?

I wonder what everyone would choose as their profession if education/life/reality didn't matter, like what you wanted to be when you were very young.
I would have loved to be a musician or an artistic painter, but unfortunately, I just don't have the natural born talent to it professionally. I do love photography and went to school to pursue it, but in the end, a regular paycheck and circumstances prevented me from doing it, though I still love photography as a hobby.
I think many people here are pursuing their life's dream, and that is truly commendable, but for those of us who have already "committed" themselves to other professions, what would you do if you could?

I always wanted to be a singer. I love singing, unfortunately I'm tone deaf and well, the sound of my voice is only appreciated in the confines of my car.

I've ALWAYS wanted to be a vetrinarian. The only reason I didn't do it is that I hate chemistry.

I'd also like to be a writer or artist, but I suck at both.

This is me too! Unfortunately I inherited the singing abilities of my father's side of the family. My grandmother, mom and my aunt are all great singers.

I have always had the crazy thought that I would like to write a novel or some kind of book.

I would have liked to have been a figure skater. Unfortunately I don't have the talent.

I always wanted to be a musician, drummer first then guitar player. My parents thought those were "boy" things so didn't encourage it. I attempted both as a teenager but gave them up for lack of financial support on my parents part.

Ditto.

I also really want to be a guitarist, but it's much more unrealistic. I'm going to attempt to become a rock journalist but y'know.. guitarist dreams.
