    default Your Earliest Goal

    Post by Bluesmama on Thu Feb 28, 2013 3:30 am

    What was your earliest goal or ambition in life as a child? For example, in kindergarten I actually wanted to be a schoolbus driver when I grew up.

    I wanted to be a surgeon when I was 7 yrs old. That dream has long passed me by.

    I wanted to be an Actor when I was in Grade School and some portion of High School. That dream went up in smoke.

    My first? 1975. Off a rebound against Eddie Giacomin.

    I've wanted to be a doctor since I was kid, but I got to college and the thought of going to school all of those years, ugh, so I became a nurse. Ironically, I received my MSN, which took 8 years altogether, so sometimes I wonder what would happened if I followed my original dream.

    As a child I wanted to build a viking long boat and drift down the Mississippi then explore the world. My other fantasy goal was to live in a box on the river bank. (I think that was inspired by a news report of a guy doing just that)

    Guess I never set the bar too high.

    Reminds me of my daughter when she was a little girl, and she wanted to work in MacDonald's when she grew up so that she could eat all the cheeseburgers she wanted.
