Re: Did you become what you dreamed of?

No I haven't
But now, hopefully.... I might
And perhaps one day, I'll write that I will
And then come back and say that I have

It's worth try any how

Re: Did you become what you dreamed of?

I'm not finished yet....my grandma is 92 and still going strong...

I wanted to be a farmer. Just to be out of the city...and the work of the hands...and wearing gumboots and a dryzabone coat and hat and digging the vegetable patch in the rain, and feeding the pigs, and doing handcraft stuff, spinning wool, embroidery and cooking porridge over the stove on a winter's morning when there is frost on the ground outdoors...

Re: Did you become what you dreamed of?

Dreamed of being an explorer, and sort of do that during weekends and vacations (and by surfing wikipedia for long stretches of time).

At one point also dreamed of joining the French Foreign Legion, didn't get around to doing that (hint of regret).

Now I'd like to be financially independent and a dad... and to keep dreaming (and keep realizing at least some of them). As long as I still have dreams and a drive to make some of them reality, life's great and it feels like I'm still growing.

Re: Did you become what you dreamed of?

If your told by the career adviser that you can "sew knickers at the Swan factory or cushion covers at Plums, it doesn't take much to achieve you dream.

...and I never worked in either of those factories.





...and my childhood dream was to be a pioneer. Was born a bit late.

Re: Did you become what you dreamed of?

Kind of... I wanted to be a doctor. I do take great care of the kids when they are sick and so I kind of did

My early passion was to be a Tv host, I felt I had the charisma and the spark but my mother said it was not a "real" career so I started studying Software Engineering, 3 semesters later I realized I could not do that as living and by chance someone offered me to learn to do nails. Now that is a passion that I really really enjoy. Might not be the diploma my mom dreamed to hang on her wall, or I might not be the tv host I wanted to be but I do have a great time with my clients and is something I could do non stop and never get tired of doing and never feel like I get overwhelmed by my job. And I feel Im great at it so is all that matters to me.
