What I Wanted to be When I Grew Up

Like most children, I had a vague notion of what I wanted to be when I grew up, but these phases never lasted too long, I thought I would share with all of you what some of my "dream occupations" once were. I do hope you get a good chuckle or two. They will be posted in chronological order. :)

I really have no idea why, but the first thing I ever remember wanting to be was an American Gladiator. And this was the event that I wanted most to do.

Now this one lasted quite some time, I wanted to be a model. I am not sure where this idea came from either. But it lasted a long time. I even, yes it's embarrassing, filled out an application for America's Next Top Model. My cousin filmed my audition tape. It was really corny.

Heavily influenced by Steve McGarrett from my favorite tv show of all time, Hawaii Five-0, I wanted to be a cop. Yep, and I was going to be a cop in Hawaii on the imaginary task force Five-0. I was a devotee of Hawaii Five-0, I used to watch the old reruns every day.

From watching too much E.R. I decided I wanted to be a nurse. It took me a couple of years to realize that I do not like blood and guts, I am even afraid of getting vaccines!

So, what did you want to be when you grew up?


  1. My childhood dream isn't nearly this entertaining...I remember being little and my dad asked all three of us kids what we wanted to be when we grew up, and I said "an artist". The funny thing is, he had some papers that he was doing something with when he asked us, and I got it into my head that he was writing everything down and sending it off somewhere (to the government, maybe?) and that was what we were going to have to be. Now, I never stopped wanting to be an artist, but when it became apparent that Kyle was not really suited to being a farmer and Jordan's race car driver dream was probably dangerous, I started to worry that maybe they had not made good career choices. Luckily, I was mistaken in thinking that they were stuck with those jobs forever! :)

  2. Is there a reason that the last picture, the one of the nurse, is shaped like Texas?
