Things you wanted to do but...

What are some of the careers that you wanted to go for in life but never got around to? I wanted to be:

a fashion designer *because I do art pretty well*
Journalist *it's exciting, hard work*
writer *have too much writer's block*
Singer *I have lyrics but no rhythm*
Stand up comic
Violinist *dropped out of the music club*
Video game designer
Computer repairer
Dancer *I only know how to do the robot so far*
Web page designer
Script writer

How about y'all?

I wanted to be a Police Officer!!!! I remember always seeing the "Recruit" van outside my high school and I used to think to myself, "Hmm, since I'm a girl they'll probably give me like a crosswalk job or desk duty..." I know, completely sexist of me!!!

But to this day at 26 years old, sometimes I still think to myself that I would like to be a cop.

What are we going to do now It's all been said,
No new ideas in the house and Every book has been read....

My list is long. I wanted to be...

Make-Up Artist (Special Effects) *My parents laughed at me*
Actress *may still try, but I doubt it*
Lawyer *can't defend guilty people*
Broadcast Journalist *I wanted to be on TV*
History Professor *too much school*
Writer *no $$*
Police Officer *too scared maybe* dunno
Fashion Designer *unrealistic*
Model *LMFAO*
Concert Pianist *quit piano too young and thought of it seriously too late*
Dancer *until I saw myself on video*
Stock Broker *LMFAO*
International Banker *yeah right, like there's work for women in the Financial Industry high up*

I am sure there are more but that's all I can think of. Now I am aspiring to be a Public Relations representative for a record company or music related corporation... this just might happen!

Veterinarian - since I was three. Then when I was a sophomore in high school, I realized I hated chemistry.

History Professor - I couldn't teach to save my life.

Something in music - ha. I'm trying to learn to play the guitar and failing miserably. Also, I can't carry a tune in a bucket.

Writer - really, really want to do this one, but I suffer from serious writer's block, and I'm too much of a perfectionist. I can't even keep a journal because I end up getting way too stressed/frustrated over what I'm writing.

And that is why I'm completely directionless.

Wow, I've been forced to think about this a lot lately as I'm entering college.

Real Estate Agent: got a job at a company and hated it.

History Teacher: it's still batting around in my mind...but the pay sucks SO bad...

Sound Gaffer: aka my dream job, to put the sounds in for like cartoons and movies.

Journalist: aka my other dream job. Oooeee I'd love to do this.

Politician: yes, something sick deep down in me makes me want to be a Senator.

Bum: yeah, except I'd get bored. And cold. Bored and cold.

------------------
Come on wisdom tooth, don't fail me now!

ok, here's the list i've wanted to pursue at some point in my life (note: some of them are from when i was very young!)....

film director
Greenpeace activist
doctor
actress
photographer
President of the USA (bwahahaha!)
art dealer
art museum director
arts/entertainment public relations

who the heck knows... i still may do one these things! however, President is definitely out- waaaay too many skeletons in my closet!!

the plan for now is to start law school this fall, and hopefully get some much needed education/experience in the arts/entertainment field... then in the future, start out working as a lawyer for either a museum or record/film company. but i definitely don't see myself practicing law for the rest of my life...

so....

Some of these are from when I was younger, bear in mind:

-Actress (too shy though)
-Journalist
-Freelance writer (*plan to make this one happen in some way, shape or form )
-have my own show, a la the "Judy Miller Show" lol But instead of being the Queen of France I used to be the Princess of Italia (don't ask).

But to this day at 26 years old, sometimes I still think to myself that I would like to be a cop.

Growing up I always thought it would be cool to be a cop, detective or private investigator...never seriously enough to do anything about it tho...plus, I'm not physically fit enough to do anything like that. I'm 32 now, I still sometimes think that it would have been cool.

I remember when I was a kid most of my favorite TV shows were either police or detective shows, maybe I just watched too much tv, lol

Another dream job would be an astronaut or work for NASA or JPL.

But I did persue my main dream, which was being an artist. I don't have my dream job...I'm a graphic designer...I'd really love to get more into illustration.

I'd really love to be an artist at NASA, now that would be really cool!

I also wanted to be a beautician but after seeing my sylist burn a client's hair out of her head... I kinda shyed away from that. No she's not my stylist anymore.

I also wanted/want to be a cosmetologist (make up artist in case I didn't spell it right). I wanted to model but after seeing Zoolander.. it changed my mind, hehe.

But now I really enjoy cooking, cooking hmm...

Hmmm, well first choice is to dress pple - by this I mean I see a lot of pple try tings on, men and women and I feel like sayin, 'Yes, that looks good on u but how about this colour?'...or 'No i tink that one there would look better, more flattering on u'........I stand in dressing rooms waiting to tell pple this.................though whether it means I gots a good eye or not I no-know..........

secondly, wouldla been at the age he was then, so that I could be that age, drama school with Jimmy Nessy in it.....so that we could in todays present world and time, play opposite each other in Moulin Rouge.....
I would knock his socks off!!!!!!!!

er....thats all for now then!!!!!!
