You hear it all the time when you’re a kid: “What do you want to be when you grow up?” It’s a great question. Unfortunately people stop asking when you’re in your late twenties. [via whisper]

  1. Not so much a job but still a want… I really wanted a green horse named kissy car :/…. so far at 30 it hasn’t happened…. yet

  2. Y’all I wanted to be a mermaid. When I was forced to go to church as a little one I used to pray to God that I could be a mermaid when I grew up. Legit.

  3. I always ask the kids at work what they want to be. One kid said he wanted to be a lamp. I understand that, he is not the brightest.

  4. When we were 4, my sister and I both wanted to marry the same boy. He rejected both of our proposals and instead said he wanted to marry his sister… We never fought over a boy again. (Of course, I did grow up to be a lesbian.)

    Oh, and, at the time I wanted to be mechanic who was also a princess.

  5. I wanted to be a white rabbit with a pink nose. When I was finally convinced I couldn’t change species I sighed heavily and said “fine, I’ll just be the Queen then!” Which meant I’d have to marry Prince William, which was gross but something I’d have to tolorate. I planned to just lock him in a dungeon and only let him eat beetroot.

    My brother wanted to be a crash test dummy…

  6. I once told my dad I wanted to be Will Smith when I grew up.

    I was a 5 year old white girl. (Who loved Fresh Prince)

  7. I wanted to be a clown, and I wanted to be an astronaut. Now that I’m older, I’m much more practical. I want to be a clown in space.

  8. I wanted to be a volcanologist. An actual career, sure (someone who studies volcanoes), but a weird choice for a 3-4 year old.

  9. Age 6: Vet – weak stomach for blood
    Age 9: singer – cannot sing a note
    Age 12: jockey – phobia ensued shortly after, due to falling off a horse
    Age 13: chef – turned vegetarian and phobia of meat ensued

    I’m not gonna hex myself with anymore aspirations…

  10. I wanted to be a lion at 5 years old… Ultimately I went to a college where the mascot was a lion and worked for a company where the logo was also a lion… Winning

  11. When I was eight, I wanted to be a myrmecologist. That’s someone who studies ants. Ants. I was an extremely lonely child who talked to ants. And I thought if I studied them enough I would be able to teach them to talk to me.
