    What did you want to be when you were little?

    I always wanted to be a professional soccer player. That dream ended quickly.

    I can't remember very much from when I was little ... I suspect something in the sciences/business, though.

    an actress.
    eventually that dream died, until...

    long story short, I got my "big break" in college in a movie a film major acquaintance from work was putting together for a festival.

    Being performance shy, I drug my feet on getting in it. Week after week these film dudes kept asking me to audition. They even tried to pull one over on me by sending the resident "hot guy" from the office in to flatter me. Flattery always fails on me, and they got me to audition by telling me frankly "we need someone to be b*tchy for this role." So I auditioned, got the role, spent half the summer on the thing- had a TON of fun.

    That fall it premiered at a historic theatre in town (mostly faculty, friends, family, a few random townies and students). It was the first time I saw it. A horriffic and embarassing performance on my part- plus poorly filmed, directed, and produced which made it look even worse.

    I also did a horror flick that fall, just for kicks.

    That dream has has now been buried.

    Pro Baseball pitcher....but I found out I didn't have what it took around 8th grade or so....I stopped playing Baseball.

    After that and Electrical Engineer...well I managed the BSET but not the engineer part. Instead I'm a Bio-Med Tech.

    I wanted to build a shelter to save all the homeless animals. When I was 7 my mother and I went to the bank with my piggy bank and a hammer and told the lady I was going to build a shelter when I save enough money. I had about 7 bucks worth of change in there and I opened my first bank account.

    I never did build that shelter but I do come home with a lot of tossed away four footed (and non footed) friends.

    Currently I have three dogs, two cats, two snakes, lizards and some fish. Got rid of the stupid finches, all they do is go "meep meep meep!"

    Oh and....the people in the house don't know it yet but I have a kitten that was just born two days ago. I have a couple of months to break it to them.

    A pilot. For quite a few years now, I have successfully defied gravity but I'm still not sure what I want to be when I grow up.
    Flying a jet is no different than riding a bicycle. It's just a lot harder to put baseball cards in the spokes.

    Astronomer. Ain't it weird? Most little kids dream of flying among the stars (hello wannabe astronauts above), but I was dreaming of looking up at them with big ass telescopes.

    Another wannabe astronaut. I actually had a pretty detailed plan: go to the Air Force Academy, fly fighters, then fly the SR-71, then become a test pilot, then become an astronaut.

    Unfortunately, in 6th grade I had to get glasses for near-sightedness and the whole plan went out the window.

    according to my mom I guess wanted to grow up.
    I made it to the last round of fire fighter testing.
    and was a pro-wrestler for a bit.
    tried to become a motorcycle racer.
    and went to race school.
    did a bunch of other stuff kids talk about.

    I wanted to be a teacher, and got into tutoring right out of high school. Then I realized that hearing a bunch of people talking all at once stresses me out. Remember the roar of the school cafeteria? Literally makes me want to gouge my eyes out.

    Now I'm an ambulance dispatcher. I only hear a maximum of five people at once, and I can turn my radios down if their traffic doesn't pertain to me. Much more pleasant!

    Now I'm not sure what I want to be when I grow up. I'm having fun dispatching, I might just do that forever.
