What did you want to be when you were young? Did you achieve it?

I wanted to be a physician.

Reality: On my way.

As a very young child, I wanted to be a housewife (gay male). I've helped raise nephews & nieces and was a caregiver for both parents.

I also wanted to live a musical. None of you sight-read, hit a note on cue, or harmonize worth shit. Now we have ALW crap because that fucker dumbed everything down for you.

I only read about science. But boxing and a lifetime of work as an artist, I did get to do.

When I was young, I wanted to be the head of the International Olympic Committee. Seriously, I wanted to be be the future Juan Antonio Samaranch and decide which city is awarded the Olympic Games.

I never came close.

I wanted to be exactly what I am ... but now that I am finally here, I've realized it's not all it is cracked up to be.

I remember being 5 or 6 and wanting to be an architect. Never did become one, which is lucky for the general public, because I suck at math and physics. I became a policy person instead.

I wanted to become a journalist when I was young. Now, I am in computers.

But honestly, I would not last very long in journalism anyway. I would have been miserable if I were.

There, there, Patti. It gets better.

I wanted to live over a store and have a simple 40 hour a week job that afforded me enough money for a simple but independent existence. In my free time I would devote myself to changing minds through written communication.

Of course that was back when such ambitions seemed achievable, even modest.

I did not know what I wanted to do until I was in my late 20s. So I guess I never achieved my goals, because I did not have them at the time. Frankly, I don't think most kids know what they want. I don't think most young adults know what they want. In fact, those who do find out what they want in life in terms of a career, at any stage, are lucky.

I did find out what I wanted to do and I have done it. So I am lucky in that respect.

I wanted to teach retarded children.
