What jobs have you considered throughout your life and as of now, what do you see yourself doing? Not talking minimum wage if you have one but a type of job you go to college and earn a degree for. And if you already have one, what is it?

When I was a kid, I dreamed of being first a football player and then a dentist. When I was a teenager, I was juggling between high school history teacher and prison guard. As a young adult, I considered being an MRI Tech, a psychologist, or a guidance counselor. Once I reached my twenties, that is started college, I was sure I wanted a criminal justice job. For a very long time, I wanted to be a parole or probation officer and I'm still strongly considering it but after starting forensics, I'm now also considering crime scene photography.

Originally wanted to become an investment banker, didn't cause of all the usury involved.

Recently aim was to become a formula one engineer, but after more research I've learned that you have to work like a dog due to the immense pressure - job contracts aren't permanent only 1 year long so if you cock up they'll just replace you.

When I was a child I dreamed of becoming a veterinarian. Then when I took biology class and couldn't handle the sight of blood coming out of anything that went down the drain.

I wanted to be an analyst for an intelligence agency but after I read about the job and saw some of the things that I might have had to do that went down the drain. I thought of running for public office for a while and that comes back every now and then but I don't know about that around here. Thought about becoming a police officer or working in some type of law enforcement but that probably isn't the best route for me to take right now. And before I used to want to be a professional athlete, wanted to run in the Olympics for team USA as a kid but I lost too many races.

I wanted to become a Solicitor. I managed to get a job as a Paralegal, but my firm closed down. Now I'm working in accounts and working towards qualifying as an Accounting Technician, hopefully. Then I'll try to qualify as an Accountant and also work as a Costs Draftsman.

I will also be studying towards Wills, Probate and Taxation.

It's so boring...
