    We all wanted to be something when we grew up. Did you become what you wanted? If not, was it due to change of heart, passed by the opportunity, or something else?

    That sounds great. Everyone I’ve met in that field has nothing but good things to say.

    I wanted to be a firefighter. That fizzled by junior high and I lost any career ambition. I’m more work to enjoy life. I currently work in the oilfield and my work schedule gives me the freedom to adventure. So it works for me right now.

    It takes an insane amount of money, my friend just sold his Jeep, and his 1972 mustangs grande w/429 cobra jet to take flight school. I couldn’t do it, that’s smart people stuff.

    Not really. I deal more with physical goals instead of trying to "heal" people

    I taught a magnitude of grade levels, continued going to college, and ended as a university professor.

    Now I am sitting in my apartment doing whatever the hell I want to do. LOL! Seriously, I'm working on a couple of novels. If I can get offline long enough to finish either of them.
