Cool What did you want to be growing up?

Because I've got to say, other than being a professional athlete, I am having a hell of a hard time trying to figure out what I want to do with my life once my high school career is behind me. And obviously the chances of becoming a pro athlete are slimmer than Gurk having sex before the NBA lockout ends...

So just out of curiosity, what job did you guys dream of doing when you were little? And did any of you actually end up with that job?

I always said I'd be a writer. I had a few teachers who were really supportive and had me read my stories to the class regularly, they entered my essays and stories into contests, etc... I always meant to write books when I grew up. Instead I ended up with half a dozen partially-finished novels.

I started a freelance writing business in 2007, and still write quite a bit for a living. So technically I became what I wanted, just a different type of writer.

No novels. But hell, that could change.

So yeah. You can be the things you hoped for when you were little.

...except, I also wanted to be a kickass lead singer/guitar player for a hard rock band, but that one didn't quite work out (currently learning guitar like a doofus)

I wanted to play on a university sports team.

I wanted to be important and help people... I wanted to be a doctor.
