    I wanted to be a nurse for disabled people/chidren when I was a kid.
    Later I wanted to be an author.

    I wanted to be something fun but ended up choosing something practical.

    I wanted to be an astronaut until I was told how difficult and near-impossible it was.

    Then, I wanted to be an astronomer until my dad explained that the pay is shit especially in the country I live in.

    Then I decided to be a travel novelist. While I didn't study literature or language, I hope to become a novelist one day

    I never had any dream job as a kid or teen.
    I am once again trying to think of a career to follow and it's hard because I have no direction.

    After my military advisor asked me what I wanted to do, I told him among other things, my childhood dream to pilot a jet and he immediately gave me all necessary documents and showed me a very cringe promotional video for jet pilots. You know those kinds, that try to be cool and appeal to young people.
    I told him, that I actually have other plans for my future and it doesn't have anything to do with the military, but he urged me to try the military career path and I wouldn't loose anything by going through all the tests first.
    I applied and even passed all tests, but after I fullfiled all requirements I backed out at the end :D
    Honestly, it was maybe the best decision of my life. All the other cons aside, the idea of a dream job in most cases is very different than reality.

    same.... atm just doing some accounting because it pays for the bills. Just kinda muddled my way here more or less. I think the questions are "what do you want to do", then "what are you good at?", both which we are supposed to explore in uni. OFC with the decay of QOL, we now should probably put "what keeps me alive" at the top. Another question you can ask is "what am I willing to give up" vs " what do I want to keep". I have three hobbies that I can NEET over and still not have enough hours in the day to fully enjoy, so my priorities looking into the future would be a job that doesn't require too much of my time. What I have atm is seasonal in that sense : a good portion of the year is stupidly busy, but most of the year is pretty free.

    When I was a kid I wanted to be an engineer in space. Aerospace Engineer. Sounded incredible.
    For a long time and even now I’m not to sure, but maybe when I retire. I’ll try something new. I’ve thought about being a blacksmith, author or a farmer.
    I’ve also thought about going back to school and getting a degree. I was thinking something along Nuclear Engineering. I think nuclear power gets such a bad rap. I would love to prove them wrong

    why not? some wanna become tree, big rock on ocean, dinosaur...
    it mean, too busy on serious type situation during that age~ everyone have it own situation~ being practical with no sense of direction during that age is quite normal~ even know if we conduct survey this cat bet many actually just copy paste other dream while lil to none of their own~ don't mind~ maybe if you have happy children they will dream to become dinosaur... gao~
    plenty of this cat childhood friends wanna become military member... mostly male cuz they think it look cool, some cuz they wanna protect the motherland~

    anyway it about just see the dream nya~
    eh~ those serious type situation is different stuff altogether~ this thread on lighthearted side cuz current situation on global pandemic is stressful enuf~
    hit man? wut agent 24 the bald one? or was it Altair? they pretty cool~
    personally this cat think nuclear can solve our energy crisis~ on long way it also can help green energy stuff~ the main issue on nuclear power is safety be it working time or after product such as nuclear waste treatment~ tbh .... ah enuf of rant about nuclear stuff

    this cat prefer a farmer for retirement, closer to home~

    I was influenced by both, but more or less Assassin's Creed. But I was also affected by all the Sniper flash games I played at that time as well as Ultimate Assassin (And man was I good at that game, getting below par most of the time, it was a bit of RNG manipulation though). Part of me came to accept the coldness of death in the mental aspect and not to be greatly affected by it, but I can still grieve. It's just that.... you can't really exist with said profession unless you have training for it and have a connection with the criminal underworld. The stories in said games were romanticizations of basically doing someone else's dirty work. You are the borrowed knife as well as somewhat expendable.

    Sigh...
    First I wanted to be an astronaut but they said I need to learn physics (I hate it a lot)
    Then I decided to become an archaeologist. Then an author. Then I wanted to be a Ceo. Then I wanted to be an astronomer.
    Then I realised all required hardwork. I was better off sleeping on my comfy bed..

    So they are gonna hand out career forms in few months and I still don't know what to do.

    I’ve actually been looking into doing accounting for the same reason, especially taxes. I took two classes in basic accounting before and am doing a free online bookkeeping course to maybe try for that at least. I’ve done seasonal jobs in the past and like the idea of free time without being locked into only a certain amount of vacation per year like a full time job. It’s not something I ‘want to do’ but it might be good for short/medium term (not whole life).

    Thank you for the question to keep in mind. The ‘what are you willing to give up’ vs ‘what do I want to keep’ might be very helpful. I’ll think on it.

    Oops, sorry, it’s right, too much seriousness around. I put in a spoiler at the least and won’t continue it. And that’s probably right. I used to copy paste dream because adults don’t accept no answer.


    Haha, I think if they dream to be dinosaur it would be cute. Thinking of it, maybe I dreamed a little of being cat. I copied my cat a lot because curiosity when was small. Learned meow, sun bathe, play by running around crazy with crazy running around cat, naps and four limb walk but that one uncomfortable.
