what did you want to be when you grew up? Did it happen?

I always thought I wanted to teach when I grew up. Then I did a co-op in highschool, I didn't even make it through one semester and I had had enough. I became an office administrator instead.

When I was about 5 till I was about 12 I wanted to be a hair dresser. Then I saw how much versatility my dad had as a Chartered Accountant, and I changed my mind to that. I am now a CA, and work in finance at an insurance company. But if I get tired of that, I can work in finance at several different industries I have training in, or I can start my own company, or do peoples taxes (yuck, never gonna happen lol), so I truly value that I have the background to change industries if I get bored But I still wish I could be a hairdresser sometimes, they are talented!

I like accounting. I looked after the office in an CA firm for a lot of years before deciding to stay home with the kids. I always did bookkeeping there and for the 2 years before I left they made a jr accountant and I had my own office, clients, etc, loved it.

I wanted to be a teacher, In highschool I switched that to ECE (early childhood educator) I wound up being a nanny, as I made more $$$ looking after less children!

I am not a school teacher, but I don't think that means I didn't achieve my goals, I still think I teach all the time!

I wanted to be a teacher or a tap dancer. I got my B.Ed., but there are NO teaching jobs at all around here. It's not a big deal now, since I'm enjoying staying home with the kids, but in a couple of years, it will be a bit annoying if things haven't changed.

The tap dancer bug, I passed on to my daughter. She decided last year she was going to be a tap dance teacher. She insisted she didn't need any lessons, but we talked her into classes this year and she is loving it.

I went from everything from hairdresser and teacher, to marine biologist. From grade 11 I wanted to be a lawyer, which is still my eventual goal
