    Remember being asked that question maybe years ago as a little kid? (If you were asked.) What did you want to be when you grew up? Today, are you what you said you wanted to be?

    I remember saying when I was ages 7-9 that I wanted to be a firefighter and save lives. I used to stand in front of the fire station all the time asking the firefighters if they wanted anything, and they just told me to make sure that nobody goes in the station while they were out.

    Now I am educated and educating many people that I come across, especially kids. I first touched a Computer when I was in 2nd grade, and now I find myself on the computers all the time. Back then I bearly got time to see one. Now I am on my way to college ready to earn a degree in Computer and Information Systems and Sciences. I never thought that would happen.

    So the way I see it, I will not just have A career, I will have many. But overall, it will be some Computer Information Technological type of job.

    I wanted to be one of two things... A corporate lawyer or own my own business. I ended up owning my own catering business.

    Well, I always wanted to be a writer. To be exact, I wanted to be a New York Times Bestselling Novelist. When I finish my internship, I'll be a Medical Biller. Go figure. Perhaps the writing thing stopped being a priority the day I was told, "Writing is a good hobby, but you still need a job." That and the fact that I am a bit of a chicken when it comes to presenting my work.

    I always wanted to be a ninja or Samurai....but there is no demand for that in the U.S.
    I also wanted to be a firefighter at one time. A civil right attorney at one time. I've wanted to pretty much be everything at one time or another. Now, I just want to live off writing poems and songs. Hopefully that will happen soon.:smokin:
