Default Dream a Little Dream. . .

Just to get to know each other a little better, and because I'm a curious person, I was wondering:

If you could be anything you wanted to be when you grow up what would it be? Assume money for college, time, age, etc. is no object.

I want to be a feature writer for a newspaper or write for a magazine--just the stuff I want to write, not what someone else wants me to write. I actually have published some stuff in smaller newspapers. Didn't get paid, but really had fun writing the features.

How about you?

I would like to be working somewhere in the jewelry industry. Maybe selling. I could have done that. But I chose to be home on nights and weekends.

Fairy Princess, of course.

Barring that, I'd love to be a writer. Novels, short story, plays. It's my passion.

I want to be a veterinarian. Still may do that someday.

I would love Samantha Brown's job, she hosts all those shows on the Travel Channel, Great Hotels and such.

that or Paige Davis's job, doing the whole Trading Spaces thing, and never being able to wear the same shirt twice for work...I could so handle that

I want to be a lawyer when I grow up, novelist on the side.
Eventually, I'd like to advance to being a prosecutor or District Attorney from lawyer though. -Apryl

I want to be that gal on the "$40 A Day" show on Food Network. She gets paid to travel all over the world and eat.

If I could do whatever I wanted and I assume my study would be no problem. I would like to be a speech writer or a movie critic. Then if I had time I would study art and engines, car engines. I always thought Toyota technician would be cool. Drawing engines might be neat too. Technical services could be fun where I wore a suit and had to look sexy everyday. Theatre actress would be like free therapy. Or how about a stewardess on International Flights and see the world. Too many things, not enough money or time.

I would be a singer, if I could sing. Otherwise I would be a L&D nurse or an OBGYN. Delivering babies would be amazing!

New goal: staying binge free and losing those last few again, but for the last time!!

Me too !!

A singing doctor would be my wish
Or a singing teacher.

Although I'd love to dance and play an instrument too.

My "dreams" are tied.
I would want to be a vet. Although having to put animals to sleep would make me very sad.
I would want to be a horse trainer.
