In the vein of the profession thread, what's the first thing you remember you wanted to do? When i was 8, i really REALLY wanted to become a fighter pilot.... That would be pretty hilarious for anyone who knows me now. THAT being said, i've had a fair lifelong interest in aviation which peaked in my childhood, and this childhood fantasy means i have the useless skill of being able to identify the vast majority (well...the majority of the ones that saw any decent use anyway) of fighter planes worldwide (current or past). The idea of going to war though is so far removed from who i am....also the idea of actually being in a fast jet....when i can't even bear rollercoasters... The second thing i really really wanted to do was.... well, rock star. I don't have that exact dream anymore, but living off music is still the thing i'd most like.
