A god?

Not literally of course. Growing up playing Sid Meier's Civilisation made me fancy myself as one of Plato's philosopher kings. Versed at running a huge empire by aged 9.

I wanted to be a radio talk show host and electrical engineer. Then, I woke up and saw nothing but crummy polluted skies, rivers on fire and littered highways so I ended up working in environmental science listening to broadcast personality Eddie Saunders' Blue Monday program on WVKO radio in Central Ohio.

I wanted to be a scientist. In fact, my mother used to, mockingly, introduce me to her friends like, "And this is my son, the "scientist". I was both hurt, and flattered at the same time. In middle school, I joined the science club and being the only kid in the club who figured out how to make gun powder, the other kids attempts were a failure so they gave their concoctions to me. The teacher left the room to flirt with a hot female math teacher and I made a pile of all their feeble attempts on the slate table and put a little of my own on top of it and lit it. Just as the mixture was burning and sending a mushroom cloud up to the ceiling, the teacher came back and saw me with the match in my hand. He reacted by screaming my name and "GET OUT". I was kicked out of the science club. Several months later I went to him and begged to be let me back in the club. He lectured me about how dangerous it was to fool around with this stuff saying "even big scientists don't know all there is about these chemicals." Any respect I may have had for him went right out the window with that comment. I thought "Bullshit ! very mad if they can make an atomic bomb, I'm sure they know how to make gunpowder.

A teacher which made sense because I used to line up all my dolls in chairs and talk to them as though they were my students.

The one that counted..paleontologist. But there were side ones. Sheep farmer in Australia. Model..til mom told me I was too short, fat and buxom. (see Twiggy the ideal back then.) Plus the nasty side of modeling. I did end up doing photography modeling years later. Science was always thought about. College was thought of to do major in Archeology with minors in Anthropology and Paleontology due to limits of schools here. At the end Lawyer. End result..got married and stayed on farm.thumbs up

I wanted to be everything... An astronomer... A doctor, to save lives... A vet, to save all the animals... A model, because my Mom always said I could never see a mirror, without spending hours looking at myself... A SWAT team member... A psychologist, but I quit, for love (I need to post that in the "What would you never do again", thread laugh because that would have been my third Bachelor Degree)... An actress... A fashion jewelry designer... bouquet

Well, everyone is different... I would never and have never seen marriage as a career... I have deep respect for the institution of marriage... Especially coming from a family where my parents were married for over 54 years... Of all the times I have been asked to get married, I never said yes, because I didn't see myself forever with any of those nine gentlemen... And I am not the kind of person that's with anyone, just to have someone by her side... bouquet wave

I didn’t mean Marry for money .
Sometimes a woman can inspire her man to greater heights , which can also relate to his career .
That old saying , “ behind every successful man theres a woman “ & behind her is his wife “ .
Or words to that effect confused laugh

Well, I am grateful to have been with a person that went from having studied until 9th grade, to obtaining a Masters Degree and with tears in his eyes he said in front of all of his classmates, that there was a very rare person that was his inspiration to achieve all his goals and that was me... So, that was like a caress to my soul... bouquet

P.S. I prefer to walk by the side or holding the hand of my love and not behind him... bouquet

I wanted to be a veterinarian, but when I discovered they put pets to sleep when the owners didn't want them, that killed that idea.
